‘It was a joke. I’m sorry. I’ve been attempting to learn general men’s humour from a book

I love this line and its delivery. Also, I’ve seen both The Thick Of It Veep so I’m quite sure this should be good. Bring on the ‘madness!’

Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore, Gwendoline Christie and Harris Dickinson star in The Darkest Minds, a sci-fi thriller in which a disease kills 98% of America’s children and the remaining 2% are placed in internment camps.

Based on the book by Alexandra Bracken and directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, The adventure begins when a 16-year-old girl escapes her camp…

 

There’s no watching this trailer without thinking about The Hunger Games or Maze Runner. I want this to be good. However there is a part of me that isn’t sure yet. I was really hoping that the special effects on the eyes didn’t look so, for want of another phrase, ‘basic.’ I’ve probably just seen to many glowing  /colourful eyes in other movies

The Darkest Minds Release Dates: August 3rd, 2018 (US); August 10th, 2018 (US)…

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS THE MOVIE (2016): The Thing I Liked…

I vaguely recall having a good time during my earlier years as I sat through episodes of Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley’s hit BBC sitcom Absolutely Fabulous. This memory and the new film’s fun trailer are reasons enough to tune into the Mandie Fletcher directed comedy  Absolutely Fabulous – The Movie.

Starring Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Kate Moss and many more,  it became clear quite quickly as I watched  that as is the case with most sitcom turned movie productions, things tended not to move along as quickly as one would have liked.

Along with the pacing problem, I found a few elements of the story just a tad too ridiculous. At first I thought It may be that too much time has passed since I watched the sitcom and I’ve therefore forgotten just how ‘ridiculous – in a good way’ it was. However, upon reflection, my accusation of ridiculousness isn’t really about how the two leads conduct themselves, but rather how far they seem to be able get even though the authorities are supposedly in pursuit, post the Kate Moss incident. 

Though there are some amusing moments, I’d say that Absolutely Fabulous – The Movie is more likely to be adored by those who really liked the sitcom. As for me who just vaguely recalls liking it, the trailer will remain the best part. I particularly enjoyed the delightfully unexpected madness of what happens to Kate Moss and the perfectly timed and comic scream /fainting of one of Moss’s biggest fans.

Absolutely Fabulous – The Movie finally has a trailer I can get excited about…

I didn’t realise how much I’d missed the antics of Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone until now. I already love the Kate Moss story. Now I can’t wait for a taste of the sense of humour of some of British and international fashion’s best known. Namely, Kate Moss, Kim Kardashian West, Cara Delevigne, Stella McCartney, etc.

Jon Hamm, Rebel Wilson and Gwendoline Christie also star.

Absolutely Fabulous The Movie Release Dates: July 1st, 2016 (UK); July 22nd, 2016 (US; September 8th, 2016 (GER)…

STAR WARS EPISODE 7 – THE FORCE AWAKENS (2015): Well Done Trailer Maker

Star Wars Episode 7 – The Force Awakens, the trailer is here and John Boyega pays a…

Epic looking and with great trailer music, especially at the beginning. Something tells me that writer / director J.J. Abrams is going to make serious fans very proud indeed.

Time for me to get moving and watching the previous films if I don’t want to be completely clueless for what is likely the biggest film event of the year if not of all time.

Release Date (s): December 17th 2015 (UK), December 18th 2015 (US)…

STAR WARS EPISODE 7 – THE FORCE AWAKENS (2015): I May Just Feel It

I love movies, but I do confess that there are some highly regarded films I’ve never watched – and a few more I may never seriously consider watching. Unfortunately all Star Wars films fall into this category.

Fantasy is simply not my favourite genre. In fact, I was quite sure that I’d probably never get round to watching a single Star Wars film. Unless…
…I met a really impassioned fan who somehow finally managed to convince me to put my aversion to fantasy film aside.

What I didn’t count on was that, that very person might just be new Star Wars writer / director J.J. Abrams.

I didn’t actually meet him, but I have seen the first 60 seconds of the new Star Wars Episode 7 – The Force Awakens teaser trailer:

I’m making no promises, of course. But when that next trailer does arrive, attention I will pay.

Happy The force Awakens 🙂
