Ansel Elgort, Patricia Clarkson, Matt Bomer and Suki Waterhouse are the stars of new drama / sci-fi Jonathan.
Directed by Bill Oliver, the story follows Jonathan who leaves the office everyday at noon. He gets home and goes to sleep. Each morning when Jonathan wakes up, there’s a breakfast prepared for him along with a video telling him about the second part of his day…
I rather enjoyed the mysterious nature of the above synopsis. Upon seeing the trailer, I’m definitely quite intrigued and find myself thinking of cloning as a key theme. It could also be interesting if I were wrong – especially since I do enjoy a well executed story surprise.
Douglas Hodge, Souleymane Sy Savane, Ramses Torres and Jeff Kim also star.
Baby Driver, an Edgar Wright written / directed action movie about a young getaway driver, one who is forced to take part in a heist that’s doomed to fail isn’t a bad film. I just didn’t love it.
The film’s style is fun, the music is loud and fun, especially if you like the songs. The whole production stylistically is quite the achievement and it’s adequately entertaining. Nevertheless though, for me personally, I found it quite forgettable. This is partly because I’m not quite the key target market. I feel that there was room for the story to work better. For example, without spoiling anything, my biggest issue with Baby Driver is the main ‘change of heart’ at the end. I just didn’t buy it for the character involved.
What I liked most about Wright’s movie is the moment (s) when Elgort’s character starts to run. After all, I have always been quite partial to a good running sequence.
Starring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lilly James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and directed by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver is the new action / crime / thriller about a young getaway driver who has been coerced into taking part in a heist job that’s doomed to fail….
All that came to right away as I watched this trailer is ‘What a great role for Elgort to land‘.
I want to see this simply because it looks good. Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Flea and Sky Ferreira also star.
I haven’t watched a single film in The Divergent Series. It’s likely that I won’t any time soon but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the execution of their latest trailer for Allegiant, the last instalment…
The music (a remix of ‘Tris’ by Ellie Golding) combined with the minimal dialogue and imagery is quite the audio visual experience.
