Directed by Kevin Kölsch, Dennis Widmyer and based on the bestselling Stephen King Novel of the same name, Jason Clarke, John Lithgow and Amy Seimetz are the stars of new horror / thriller Pet Sematary.

The story centres around the Creed family who move into a new rural home, and soon learn of the ‘Pet Semetary’ located close by. After their cat is killed by a truck, said cat is laid to rest in the mysterious pet cemetery. The Creeds don’t fully know it yet but the cemetery is not quite as it seems. In fact, it soon proves to them that sometimes, dead is better…

I’ll start by saying that I already love the ‘…sometimes, dead is better‘ line. So spooky!

Having definitely not read the book, I’m drawn in by how clever this story seems to be. I’m interested in the thrills and maybe a few scares… but really, mostly the thrills, because I’m scared.

Naomi Frenette, Maria Herrera, Obssa Ahmed, Bailey Thain, Sonia Maria Chirila, Jeté Laurence and Hugo Lavoie also star.

Pet Sematary Release Dates: April 5th, 2019 (US & UK)…

DADDY’S HOME 2 (2017): New Trailer From Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow, John Cena…

The first Daddy’s Home (2015) movie starring Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell and Linda Cardelilni featured a ‘cool biological dad versus new and not so cool stepdad’ dynamic between Ferrell and Wahlberg. For the Sean Anders directed sequel, the same dynamic remains, except this time Ferrell and Wahlberg’s characters are the best of friends but their dads played by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow are not quite that…

 

The original movie was OK and featured some memorable scenes. I’ll be tuning in this time for much of the same and hopefully more. I already love the kiss between Lithgow and Ferrell’s characters.

Daddy’s Home 2 Release Dates: November 10th, 2017 (US); November 22nd, 2017 (UK)…

I am a big Salma Hayek fan and I just couldn’t be happier to see her in a role that looks as great as the one of Beatriz in Beatriz At Dinner. Also starring Connie Britton, Chloë Sevigny, John Lithgow and Jay Duplass, Hayek’s Beatriz is a holistic medicine practitioner who attends a wealthy client’s dinner party after her car breaks down. And so begins very thought provoking dialogue…

Directed by Miguel Arteta, this great trailer has me very impatient to take in all of writer Mike White’s words.

Beatriz At Dinner Release Dates: June 9th, 2017 (US)…

The Accountant is Ben Affleck’s new movie and good is how the trailer looks…

I’ve seen, loved and re-watched Good Will Hunting (1997) quite a few times, so as I watched this trailer, I couldn’t help but think, ‘and now… Affleck gets to play the ‘mathematical genius’. Sort of.

Anna Kendrick, John Lithgow, Jon Bernthal and J.K. Simmons also star.

The Accountant Release dates: October 14th, 2016 (US); October 20th, 2016 (GER); November 4th, 2016 (UK)

INTERSTELLAR (2014): As Expected, Christopher Nolan Did It Again… It’s Good

I finally did it. I watched Interstellar!

The nearly three hour running time is part of the reason why I hadn’t yet, plus, I believe it important to be in the right mood for a particular type of film before watching.

Anyway…

From Christopher Nolan, the director who brought us the hugely successful Inception (2010) and the recent Batman trilogy, the cast for Interstellar includes Matthew McConaughey, Ann Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, to name just a few.

Nolan has once more delivered a memorable film. One that features some stunning space imagery, a handful of nail biting/ tense moments – and at the heart, a powerful and extraordinary father/ daughter love story.

If you happen to be into astronomy and science, you’ll likely love this film even more, because it covers space exploration for the purpose of saving human kind from extinction – and it’s not afraid to dive into the science.

Like Inception (2010), Interstellar deals with a few non-simplistic concepts and therefore requires your full attention. I think I managed to keep up quite well, even though science isn’t my subject. That said, please be so kind as to not test me!

Happy Interstellar 🙂
