In Jungle, Daniel Radcliffe and Alex Russell are in a group of friends who trek into the Bolivian jungle with a fraudulent guide (Thomas Kretschmann).

Directed by Greg McLean, Jungle is based on a true survival story and adapted from the book by Yossi Chinsberg. I’m always happy to watch a movie that has people venturing into the dangerous jungle; I just won’t voluntarily do the same, ever because my imagination works too hard conjuring up images of  all the scary creatures that live there.

Jungle Release Dates: 2017 (US)…

The story behind the latest movie  starring Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano is intrigingly nuts. Dano plays a man stranded on an island and his only friend is…

Witten / directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, I’m curious about the story, but more than that, my main interest is in the film’s creative execution, especially since Radcliffe’s character is essentially a corpse.

I  find myself wondering about which actor’s must have been more challenging…

WHAT IF (2013): For The Comedy & Relatable Love & Life Challenges

Thanks to good writing and a very talented cast, What If is funny, kind of kooky, possesses an uncommon realness and features a well chosen musical score.

Daniel Radcliffe, Adam Driver, Zoe Kazan, Rafe Spall, Meghan Park and Mackenzie Davis are the stars of this Michael Dowse directed comedy / romance.

Kazan, an actress I’ve loved since the beautiful Ruby Sparks (2012) is as adorable as ever and the chemistry between her character and that played by Radcliffe is very convincing.

Watch What If for the comedy, the relatable predicaments faced by the characters and the useful wisdom about life and love.

Now You See Me 2, the sequel to 2012’s slick and clever Now You See Me is coming and the trailer promises more seemingly impossible illusions and tricks from the The Four Horsemen…

Directed by Jon M. Chu; Daniel Radcliffe, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman, Lizzy Caplan, Dave Franco and Michael Caine return along with Mark Ruffalo for more action magic and thrills.

I’m looking forward to plenty, including the character played by Daniel Radcliffe.

TRAINWRECK (2015): The Good Things…

Trainwreck stars Amy Schumer, the comedienne behind one of my favourite shows on Comedy Central, Inside Amy Schumer. 

Written by Schumer and directed by someone I like to refer to as ‘comedy film king’, Judd Apatow, Trainwreck was a romantic comedy I had high hopes for.

Overall, the film isn’t bad. The scenes I enjoyed most are in the middle of the film and they include the conversations between the characters played by Bill Hader, LeBron James and/ or Amy Schumer. Ezra Miller’s Donald is also particularly memorable.

Some scenes in the first twenty minutes unfortunately felt quite long and the ending left me craving creative disruption of the romantic comedy genre, probably more than I ever have.

I often find that whenever comics star in their own comedy films, the narrative moves too slowly for my liking. It probably has something to do with me being used to the sketch show / standup comedy format where the point is rarely ever dragged out unnecessarily; at least not by the good comics.

Part of the problem with Trainwreck is that I already enjoyed a good number of the funniest moments in the trailer. So, once once again, I may have liked the trailer more than I did the film. Those who are not already quite familiar with Schumer’s comedy will likely love the movie more because of the general newness. The rest of us might end up doing more smiling than laughing.

VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN (2015): New Trailer With Daniel Radcliffe & James McAvoy

Starring two of my favourite British Actors, Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy, this version of the Frankenstein tale should be interesting. Firstly because it’s from Igor’s perspective and second, it’s set before the Frankenstein we’re most familiar with today emerges.

Without further a do…

Directed by Paul Paul McGuigan of Lucky Number Slevin (2006), (a movie I recommend), bring on November 25th.

Happy Victor Frankenstein 🙂
