Fantasy / adventure, A Wrinkle In Time is a story about a young girl called Meg. Meg is sent into space with her brother and a friend by three peculiar beings.  Together they must venture there to find Meg’s scientist father after his sudden disappearance. Directed by Ava DuVernay; A Wrinkle In Time stars Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw…

Reasons to watch this movie include the story, which is completely new to me, the magic, the talented cast and the beautiful visuals. I’m liking Oprah Winfrey as the voice of the narrator, as well as the hint of a vibe similar to Alice In Wonderland and The Wizard Of Oz. 

Mindy Kaling, Zach Galifianakis,  Michael Peña, Bellamy Young and André Holland also star.

A Wrinkle In Time Release Dates: March 9th, 2018 (US), 23rd March, 2018 (UK)…

WONDER WOMAN (2017): New Trailer Starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine…

I haven’t really paid much attention to many of the Wonder Woman news headlines ever since it was announced that Gal Gadot had won the role. Hearing about the resultant backlash concerning her casting only worked to make me impatient for the day when she hopefully gets to silence all her critics with a brilliant performance…

Trailer 1 (Comic-Con)

Trailer 2

I definitely like the Comic-Con trailer more than I do the one for Justice League (2017) also released on the same day. The music, visuals and general badassery just speaks to me more – though not just because the Amazon princess and I are both young ladies.

It crossed my mind that Wonder Woman is kind of a female Captain America. I say this initially because of the shield. I’m sure there are probably other reasons but I’m completely new to this story so I’d just be guessing. I’d love for this Patty Jenkins directed movie to be as powerful in its ability to silence the critics of Gal Gadot as Casino Royale (2006) was for critics of Daniel Craig’s casting as James Bond.

Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright also star.

Bring on the power!

Wonder Woman Release Dates: June 2nd, 2017 (US & UK); June 7th, 2017 (FR);  June 15th, 2017 (GER)…

From the writer known for Sicario (2015) and Sons Of Anarchy comes Hell Or High Water, a new movie with Chris Pine and Ben Foster as two very desperate brothers in West texas…

I’ve probably seen enough bank robbery movies for this life time.So it’s the relationship between the two brothers and the catalyst(s) that lead to their desperate situations that intrigues me most.

Directed by David Mackenzie; Jeff Bridges, Dale Dickey and Katy Mixon also star.

Hell Or High Water Release Dates: Aug 12th, 2016 (US)…

Based on a true story, The Finest Hours tells the story of a group of men whose jobs will remind you that what you do for a living probably isn’t that bad. At least that’s what went through my mind…

A rescue mission at sea is at the centre of The Finest Hours. Starring Chris Pine, Holliday Grainger, Ben Foster, Casey Affleck, Kyle Gallner, and Eric Bana, I’m expecting plenty of drama, action and I’m sure, breaks of of several kinds.

Craig Gillespie, director of one of my favourite Ryan Gosling movies, Lars & The Real Girl (2007) is the man in charge.

The Finest Hours Release Date(s): January 29th, 2016 (US); February 19th, 2016 (UK)…

The new trailer for the latest Star Trek movie just arrived…

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

I didn’t find myself particularly enthused after trailer one on account of the peculiar music choice and generally not being a trekkie. Trailer two is better. Though, of course, trekkies will love it far more

Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Zachary Quinto,  Sofia Boutella and Simon Pegg star whilst Justin Lin directs.

Release Date (s): July 22nd (US & UK)…

Z FOR ZACHARIAH (2015): Interesting Drama On The Ultimate Love Triangle

Directed by Craig Zobel, and based on a novel by Robert C. O’Brien, Z For Zachariah is a mysterious drama starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie and Chris Pine.

Set in the aftermath of a disaster that has eradicated most of civilisation, at the centre of the film is a love triangle between the people likely to be the last three left.

I tuned in mainly because of the talented cast – and considering the unique circumstances the characters find themselves in, I just had to know how things would turn out for all involved.

Naturally, everyone does not win, but it sure is interesting to see how the characters navigate their unique predicaments, making for engaging character studies. I was left thinking about how things can turn out when people let their insecurities get the best of them.

Watch it for the subject matter.
