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.
Imagine being a human curious about earth and all its wonders because you were the first person to ever be born on mars. That’s the premise of The Space Between Us. Asa Butterfield plays said human and the thing he’s most curious about on planet earth is a girl called Tulsa (Brit Robertson)…
The main if not only reason I’m really curious about this movie is the science.
Directed by Peter Chelsom; Gary Oldman, Carla Gugino and BD Wong also star.
Directed by Brad Peyton; Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, and Paul Giamatti are the stars of San Andreas – that California earthquake movie you may have heard about over the summer.
You may also have heard that the visual effects are breathtaking and they are. However, the thing I enjoyed most is actually the unique father daughter relationship. San Andreas isn’t a bad movie, there’s just nothing that feels particularly new about it, therefore making it feel not quite as epic as I’d hoped.
Some random things came to mind as I watched:
On account of all the dust, running, falling and screaming, how much fun was being an extra on this movie, really?
I honestly don’t recall the last time I saw such excellent mother/ daughter casting.
You’d have to be blind not to notice Alexandra Daddario’s eyeballs. If you’ve seen the film, I know you noticed!
I better be careful because I don’t know anyone that would come and rescue me at a time when the traditional emergency services cannot. But then again… you never know. Just don’t rely on it, of course. But still, you never know…
If by this point you’re still curious, watch it for the impressive visual effects and all else that appeals.
I love the music in the new trailer for San Andreas (2015) – nothing to do with Grand Theft Auto.
The general pace and rhythm of this preview provides a welcome contrast to the chaos of the film’s reality.
When I like a trailer, I always really hope that the film is equally good, if not better. To this end, seeing Paul Giamatti’s face helped provide some reassurance. My fingers are crossed for the end result.
One more thing, you don’t see her face in the trailer, (at least I didn’t) but this film is additional evidence of Pop Singer Kylie Minogue’s return to acting.
