Something about the look and feel of this animation reminds me of the kinds of stories and children’s books I used to read as an eight year-old. Therefore I must watch.

First They Killed My Father – A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers is the latest from director Angelina Jolie. Starring Sareum Srey Moch, Phoeung Kompheak and Sveng Socheata, the film tells the story of Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung and the horrors she suffered under the rule of the deadly Khmer Rouge…

This is one of my favourite trailers of 2017 so far. The absence of dialogue and all that we don’t yet see makes the imagery that much more chilling. I wonder how this will compare to the child soldier story of Cary Joji Fukunaga’s  Beasts Of No Nation (2015).

I have no doubt that this will be moving and inspiring, in a way that’s similiar to Jolie’s last biography, Unbroken (2014)

First They Killed My Father – A Daughter Of Cambodia Remembers Release Dates: September 15th, 2017 (US)…

KUNG FU PANDA 3 (2016): For The Overwhelming Cuteness…

I’m certain that most people, especially children will find Kung Fu Panda 3 very entertaining indeed.

Just as I’m sure that the movie has a lovely message about fulfilling your destiny, doing the right thing, family, friendship,  etc. I for one watched Kung Fu Panda 3 in the most part for the humour. The story is definitely good too but mostly, the cuteness of the animals was my biggest draw – and on that basis the movie delivered.

Bryan Cranston’s Li voice and the ‘egg laying out of fear’ joke / sequence are definite highlights.

Watch it for the reasons above and because it’s actually good.

Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, J.K. Simmons Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan and Lucy Liu are among the rest of the key cast.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016).

Just when I thought I’d have to wait until the next Minion movie for a serious overload of cuteness…

I’ve seen pandas in real life and let me say, yes they are very cute but pandas can also be incredibly boring! Sitting around and eating bamboo all day long. So… thank heavens for overactive imaginations – the result of which, in this case is the above really fun trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3.

I love that the Kung Fu Panda movies are about finding your true self as well as being funny and cute – something I’m always happy to get more of.

Jack Black, Lucy Liu, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Brian Cranston and Dustin Hoffman are providing just some of the key voices.

Kung Fu Panda 3 Release Date (s): January 29th, 2016, March 11th, 2016 (UK)…

UNBROKEN (2014): A Note On How to Achieve The Impossible, Starring Jack O’Connell

When I saw the trailer for Unbroken in 2014, I became very excited; first because I love Angelina Jolie. Second because Jack O’Connell is one of my recent favourite Actors (he was brilliant in Starred Up (20013) and lastly, the Louis Zamperini story.

Directed by Jolie and with British O’Connell in the starring role, Unbroken is the story of a man (Zamperini) who overcame one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after another.

Zamperini’s story of physical and mental endurance began well before the near fatal plane crash in WW2 that changed the course of his life.

It is in fact the very vital relationship he had with his family, namely his big brother, Pete, that really helped prepare him for every extraordinary thing he was  able to accomplish in the years that followed.

That goodness for the people who add immeasurable value in the way they encourage and believe in our capabilities, especially when we don’t.

The screenplay was penned by the Cohen brothers, Joel and Ethan, so clearly the film had everything going for it from writers, cast, crew and beyond.

The performances that stick in my mind come from O’Connell, of corse and Miyavi who plays the character of Sergeant Watanabe. Garrett Hedlund, Domhnall Gleeson and Jai Courtney also do a great job

If you haven’t already watched Unbroken, know that it’s a brilliant story of extraordinary strength of the human spirit. One that is so well told that you’ll be glad you had the chance to learn about Mr Zamperini.

As if I needed more reasons to love Angelina Jolie!

Happy Unbroken 🙂
