The Dirt stars Iwan Rheon, Douglas Booth, Machine Gun Kelly and Daniel Webber as members of American rock band Mötley Crüe.

Directed by Jeff Tremaine; The Dirt is the story of how the group became one of the most notorious rock bands in history…

I’m certainly not very familiar with Mötley Crüe’s music but I am curious about the chemistry between the four leads – and hoping for a very convincing end result.

Leven Rambin, Pete Davidson, Daniel Webber, Rebekah Graf, Tony Cavalero and Kabby Borders also star.

The Dirt Release Dates: March 22nd, 2019 (US)…

Happy Film Loving

JUPITER ASCENDING (2015): What I Enjoyed Most? Mila Kunis’ Royal Outfits

Directed by The Wachowskis, the duo behind The Matrix (1999) trilogy and starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne, I had relatively high hopes for how Jupiter Ascending would turn out… admittedly, mostly because of Redmayne.

After the event however, it would be quite the stretch for me to call Jupiter Ascending a ‘good film’ – though there are some things I enjoyed. Namely, Mila Kunis’ royal outfits, the visuals of Jupiter and the rather disturbingly good theory about ‘harvesting’ planet earth.

Everything else was just unconvincing. I found myself unable to properly buy into any of the characters let alone the central love story.

Usually I can suspend my disbelief given that a story is executed well – whether it be sci-fi, fantasy, etc. That’s just not completely the case here.

I still love Mila Kunis, especially in That 70s Show, Family Guy and Black Swan (2010) – just not in Jupiter Ascending.

Happy film loving. Now, go watch The Matrix 🙂

THE RIOT CLUB (2014): Sam Claflin, Great At Being Despicable

At first, the young men of The Riot Club don’t appear too dissimilar to any gathering of adult students enjoying the freedoms synonymous with university life. That is until a fateful dinner where things take a dramatically dark and villainous turn.

This is a movie about two first-year Oxford University students and their experience as part of The Riot Club, a secret society of wealthy, elitist, hedonistic and undeniably privileged individuals.

Directed by Lone Scherfig, the film features some of the best of Britain’s young acting talent. Names that include Sam Claflin, Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Max Irons, etc.

Watch it for the story, an insight into the usually inaccessible world of a very small group of highly privileged university students, the cinematography and a reminder of just how punishing naivety can be.

here is the trailer that had me sold…

Trailer song: ‘Inhaler’ by Foals.

Happy Film loving 🙂
