THE POST (2017): New Trailer Starring Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Sarah Paulson…

Directed by Steven Spielberg and inspired by true events, The Post tells the story of  the cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents and pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher (Meryl Streep) and a hard-driving editor (Tom Hanks) to begin a journalistic battle against the government…

I didn’t realise I missed Meryl Streep so much until I saw her turn around in this trailer. I’m of course going to be watching because of her and Hanks. It’s also going to be an experience to watch all the sexist nonsense that will be directed at her character, Kay Graham.

Sarah Paulson, Carrie Coon, Bradley Whitford, Bob Odenkirk, Matthew Rhys, Zach Woods and David Cross also star.

The Post Release Dates: January 12th, 2018 (US), January 19th, 2018 (UK)…

GERALD’S GAME (2017): New Trailer From Carla Gugino, Henry Thomas, Bruce Greenwood…

In Gerald’s Game, Gerald and Jessie are a middle aged couple trying to spice up their marriage in their remote lake house. Unfortunately for them, things really don’t go according to plan. Directed by Mike Flanagan and based on the novel by Stephen King, Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood and Henry Thomas star…

This is probably just the kind of thing that my over-active imagination would conjure up and help me foresee, before I’d even consider allowing myself to be handcuffed, given the choice. For a moment I thought the characters were actually having an affair. How much more anxiety ridden Jessie would be if that were the case.

I have to see this to find out how she gets out, especially assuming that she does it without anyone’s help.

Gerald’s Game Release Dates: September 29th, 2017 (US)…

FLIGHT (2012): For Denzel Washington’s Great Performance & That Excellent Ending…

From the acclaimed director of Forrest Gump (1994) and the much loved Back To The Future movies, Robert Zemeckis, I knew that Flight would be worth my time and not just because it came highly recommended by a fellow film lover. The films’s star is Denzel Washington – another great reason to watch, as is an interest in the story of a skilled airplane pilot whose personal demons lead him to both endanger and save the lives of his passengers

A well written and told story, one of my favourite highlights is the ‘courtroom’ scene towards the end. I knew it was coming and I couldn’t wait. The dialogue and general back and forth with Denzel’s character and the person (s) questioning him proved worth the wait.  Overall though, my absolute favourite moment in Flight has to be the actual ending. That last scene says so very much in just a few simple words. If you haven’t already, I say watch it for the Denzel magic and  much more.
