Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg and  Gal Gadot as Wonder woman, the DC Comics’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie  trailers look good…

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

Intense, interesting are two words that come to mind. I’ll be watching for reasons including the seemingly promising dialogue. Though, I do wonder how much longer it’s going to be before comic book movie fatigue sets in on a large scale, if it does. Either way, right now it’s the fans who really, REALLY love these stories that I’m most excited for.

Perhaps Wonder woman will get the two  superheroes to work together. Quite likely.

Release Date (s): March 24th, 2016 (FR & GER); March 25th, 2016 (US & UK)…

Happy Film Loving  🙂

AMERICAN HUSTLE (2013): Exactly As I Thought

Director David O. Russell’s film is good and Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner are all great in their roles.

However, I did find myself not as hooked as the story unfolded – at least not early on in the film anyway.

It’s not that plenty was’t happening – and at a good pace. It’s likely that I just didn’t identify with or get especially attached to any of the characters. Things did get better, particularly at the moment ‘Edith’s veil’ comes down.

Watch it if you’re curious about the story of a con man trying to keep the upper hand and stay alive when forced to work with the FBI in 70s New Jersey.

Happy American Hustle 🙂

BATMAN v SUPERMAN – DAWN OF JUSTICE (2016) Interesting…

I thought I’d be more excited after seeing the Batman v Superman – Dawn of Justice teaser trailer. Perhaps it’s something to do with the fact I’m still living in the past of Christian Bale as the caped crusader…

Not quite sure about my super heroes fighting each other – as the trailer and title suggest. Either way, I hope the film turns out great. Perhaps by 2016 I won’t be so attached to Bale as Batman… probably not. He did such a brilliant job!

Happy Batman v Superman 🙂

JULIE & JULIA (2009): In The Name Of Passion And A Love Of Food

When you sit down to watch Julie and Julia, I highly recommend having a few of your favourite foods with you. I say this because you will find yourself with at least one or two serious  cravings.

Based on the life of American Chef, Julia Child, and Writer Julie Powell, meet two ladies with a shared passion for food, cooking and feeding the people they love.

Besides the joy of a well executed drama about two women who quite literally come alive whilst indulging in their favourite pass time, Julie & Julia will likely inspire you to dedicate more time pursuing your own passions.

To look at it another way, should the task of silencing doubters be a  hobby of yours, or one you wouldn’t mind taking up, then look no further to see it done with such admirable aplomb.

If you’re still unsure, I have two words. Meryl Streep.

Happy Julie & Julia 🙂
