Directed by Andy Serkis; starring Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Hugh Bonneville and Diana Rigg, Breathe tells the story of Robin, a handsome, brilliant and adventurous man whose life takes a dramatic turn when polio renders him paralysed…

I’m somewhat intrigued by this movie. I say only somewhat because the story seems quite similar to The Theory Of Everything (2014) – a film which still remains fresh in my mind. I’m also probably a little more curious about director Andy Serkis’s other upcoming movie Jungle Book – due in 2018 and based on the famous Rudyard Kipling story.

Breathe Release Dates: October 13tth, 2017 (US); October 27th, 2017 (UK)…

SILENCE (2016): New Trailer From Director Martin Scorsese, Starring Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Liam Neeson…

Oscar winning director Martin Scorsese’s latest movie doesn’t look like it has a single gangster in sight. Starring Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver as Jesuit priests in the 17th century, the film follows the pair to Japan where they go on a dangerous journey to find their mentor (Liam Neeson) and spread the word about Christianity…

I’m looking forward to finding out what magic Scorsese can create in what looks like a very different genre of film than what we’re used to expecting from the acclaimed director.

Silence Release Dates: December 23rd, 2016 (US) January, 1st 2017 (UK)…

HACKSAW RIDGE (2016): New Trailer From Mel Gibson Starring Andrew Garfield

Andrew Garfield is the star of Mel Gibson’s latest film, Hacksaw Ridge. Garfield plays real life WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, a man who joins the army but refuses to kill people…

I don’t know what the word is for how this trailer makes me feel but I know I’ll have to be in the right mood to sit and watch. It seems to have a kind of Forrest Gump quality but pulls even harder at the heartstrings; all of which makes me think that the end product is going to be dare I say, overly sappy.

Perhaps I’d be more intrigued had the trailer not revealed so much. All that has been left out of this trailer appears to be the presentation of the Medal of Honour. As continues to be the case, I ‘m missing the good trailers of the past that really cleverly showed you only enough and never too much.

My favourite Mel Gibson directed movie will likely always be Apocalypto (2006).

Sam Worthington, Ryan Corr, Luke Bracey, Vince Vaughn and Hugo Weaving also star.

Hacksaw Ridge Release Dates: November 4th ,2016 (US); (GER)

THE SOCIAL NETWORK (2010): The Dialogue & Jesse Eisenberg’s Performance Makes It

The actual Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of Facebook had zero involvement in the making of The Social Network. Still, considering how well publicised the legal drama around Facebook was at the time, one can imagine that there’s likely more truth in the movie than  fabrication.

With reputable names like screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher attached to the project, as a fan of great writing, not seeing The Social Network would have been, to put it inoffensively, most ill-advised. Sorkin’s dialogue is absolutely my favourite thing about this film, particularly everything that Jesse Eisenberg gets to say in his role as Zuckerberg. The words, rhythm and pace are really a thing to experience.

A reason to watch is the example of what good screenwriting can look like. Another reason is curiosity about the movie version of the Facebook story. As I watched The Social Network, I found myself thinking about how much truth there is in the idea that often, many high achievers tend not to be the most likeable people, personality-wise. Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs are two impressive people that come to mind.

Andrew Garfield, Max Minghella, Justin Timberlake, Armie Hammer and Rooney Mara feature as the more than competent supporting cast. Looking at the picture above, I can’t help but agree with the line in the movie that refers to the ‘niceness’ of the face of Erica Albright /Rooney Mara. It is quite the work of art.
