On The Basis Of Sex is the Mimi Leder directed drama / biography about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG).

Starring Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux and Kathy Bates, the story focuses of RBG’s struggles for equal rights and all she had to overcome in order to become a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

I’m in for the story of a smart and extraordinary woman. There’s also the courtroom action / dialogue to look forward to, as well as the pleasant surprise that is the cast and costume. I love everything Jones is dressed in in this trailer.

On The Basis Of Sex Release Dates: December 25th, 2018 (US); February 8th, 2019 (US)…

Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer and Lakeith Stanfield are the stars of Sorry To Bother You, a comedy / fantasy film based in an alternate present-day version of Oakland, USA.

Written and directed by Boots Riley, Stanfield plays a telemarketer who discovers a magical key to professional success; a key that propels him into…

I’ve been waiting for something crazy and fun; I think this is it! Having seen Get Out (2017), I do rather hope that Stanfield’s character gets out ‘alive’ this time.

This movie really looks as though it was plenty of fun to be part of; I’m smiling just thinking about the onset giggles.

Patton Oswalt, Terry Crews, David Cross, Omari Hardwick and Danny Glover also star.

Sorry To Bother You Release Dates: July 6th, 2018 (US)…

FINAL PORTRAIT (2017): New Trailer From Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy, Stanley Tucci…

Written / directed by Stanley Tucci, Final Portrait tells the story of Swiss painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti. Set in Paris, France, Geoffrey Rush is Giacometti and Armie Hammer plays critic and old friend, James Lord. Lord sits for a portrait and so begins the creation of one of Giacometti’s masterpieces…

Geoffrey Rush is always memorable and that’s my main reason for watching. I’m also open to discovering another artist’s genius. Lastly, I don’t think I’ve seen a movie directed by Tucci before so hopefully this will be good.

Clemence Posey and Tony Shalhoub also star.

Final Portrait Release Dates: August 18th, 2017 (US)…

Exposed to the elements, battling the physical and psychological toll of being stranded in the desert, Mine is the story of  a soldier who must find a way to survive the very real dangers before him. Writen / directed by Fabio Guaglione and Fabio Resinaro, Mine stars Armie Hammer, Annabelle Wallis, Tom Cullen…

Most of us can very easily sit quite still, but to stand in one place, unable to move one of your legs? That’s something else entirely. How on earth will Hammer’s character do it? That’s the question.

Clint Dyer, Geoff Bell and Juliet Aubrey also star.

Mine Release Dates: April 7th, 2017 (US)…

A shootout between two gangs in a deserted Boston warehouse, in 1978 is what happens in director Ben Wheatley’s new movie Free Fire. Starring Cillian Murphy, Armie  Hammer, Brie Larson and Sharlto Copley, we hopefully have a rather stylish movie on the way – specially if we’re to believe the well edited trailer before us…

Right Away, Guy Ritchie’s style of film making came to mind as this trailer played – from Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels (1998) to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) and beyond. I’m just hoping that Wheatley’s movie is as good as the style and great stories that inspired it. Bring on the thrills great camera work, story and all else, no pressure.

What great choices Mr Copley makes in the roles he plays. So many pleasant surprises…

Michael Smiley, Jack Reynor, Babou Ceesay and Sam Riley also star.

Free Fire Release Dates: 2017 (US); March 31st, 2017 (UK)…

THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. (2015): Stylish & Fun

The Man From U.N.C.L.E (2015), Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer

Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Hugh Grand and Elizabeth Debicki star in Director Guy Ritchie’s latest spy movie, The Man From U.N.C.L.E ( U.N.C.L.E meaning United Network Command for Law and Enforcement).

I was initially quite concerned after watching the trailer for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. because I feared that the film would contain one or two very questionable accents. I’m neither Russian nor American, so perhaps I’m not the right person to say, but both Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer’s respective American and Russian accents sound rather above board to me.

As for the movie’s spectacle, I found The Man From U.N.C.L.E. adequately entertaining. The story, style and everything in the film, including all aspects of design, namely the fashion, cars and interiors… all of it plus the dialogue did just enough to keep me watching.

I also really enjoyed a relatively short but beautifully captured moment of rage towards the end of the movie. Though, overall, I strongly doubt whether there’ll ever be a Guy Ritchie movie that could unseat the top positions that

his first two films, Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels (1998) and Snatch (2000) continue to hold in my heart and mind.

Tune in to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. for the design / style and if you haven’t already, make time for Ritchie’s very smart first two movies. They are super!

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.
