Redmayne is joined by Jude Law, Ezra Miller, Johnny Depp, Katherine Waterston, Colin Farell and others for more ‘wandtastic’ adventures as Newt Scamander…
The stunning visuals – including costume design, that’s why I’m in. I also can’t wait to see what Johny Depp’s character gets up to.
I have a feeling that this movie is going to be a constant reminder for of the reason why movies are my absolute favourite. They are, when done wonderfully, a true perfect amalgamation of all the arts.
Paolo Sorrentino, the rightfully celebrated writer/ director is the man behind the brand new HBO / Sky series The Young Pope. Starring Jude Law, Diane Keaton and Silvio Orlando, Law is Lenny Belardo, aka Pius XIII and history’s very first American Pope…
My levels of excitement about this show were first high because the trailer looks fantastic, great music and editing. But the joy reached new levels when I learned of Sorrentino’s involvement. After all, he did write and direct Youth (2015), one of the most visually stunning movies I’ve seen in a while. There’s also the The Great Beauty (2013), 2014’S Best Foreign Language Film Oscar winner.
I say bring on the stunning cinematography and storytelling. I can’t wait to find out what really drives Pius XIII – because based on this beautiful trailer, it’s not just love and holy duty.
King Arthur – Legend Of The Sword is the title of Guy Ritchie’s latest present to passionate film lovers like myself. Starring Charlie Hunnam, an actor better known for hit TV series Sons Of Anarchy, I feel as though this retelling of the King Arthur story has arrived just in time. For one, Hunnam feels like a brilliant casting choice and second, I could do with a refresher on the story since I barely recall the premise…
I LOVE this King Arthur trailer! The music, editing, dialogue, camera work – all the reasons I fell in love with Ritchie’s talents in the first place. I’d stop writing this post and go see it now if could. Patience! – said everyone.
Jude Law, Eric Bana, Djimon Honsou, Annabelle Wallis and Aidan Gillen Michael McElhatton also star.
In Genius, the new movie directed by Michael Grandage, Colin Firth is Max Perkins, the book Editor who oversaw the work of some of America’s best known writers. Namely, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe and Ernest Hemingway…
Genius looks like the kind of movie that’ll be most interesting to writers and fans of the key actors involved. I’m just not sure that this particular cut of the trailer has me that eager to see the film. Only if the inauthenticity of Jude Law’s accent wasn’t so obvious, maybe…
Nicole Kidman, Vanessa Kirby, Dominic West, Laura Linney and Guy Pearce also star.
Watching a spy movie and not having at least one thing about it reminding you of James Bond – the most famous spy of them all, is near enough impossible. Starring Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law and Jason Statham, the Paul Feig written/ directed Spy is no exception.
Unlike 007 however, spy is a comedy as well as an action film – and a rather good one at that.
An entertaining experience with a well written story, fun dialogue and characters is how I describe the movie. The dynamic between Jason Statham and Melissa McCarthy’s characters is a big highlight. Rose Byrne’s Rayna Boyanov is also another plus.
The other very reliable cast members include Allison Janney, Miranda Hart, Sam Richardson, Morena Baccarin and Bobby Cannavale.
Watch it because it’s good. I found Jude Law’s character a tad annoying at first but it’s not so bad because the movie is a Melissa McCarthy vehicle and Spy is definitely my favourite of her roles since Bridesmaids (2011), also directed by Paul Feig.
Written / directed by Wes Anderson, The Grand Budapest Hotel is a dramatic comedy adventure that stars Ralph Feinnes, Adrien Brody, Mathieu Amalric, Jude Law, Edward Norton and two great young Actors by the name of Tony Revolori and Saoirse Ronan.
Anderson’s film is wonderful feast of good and humorous story telling that features rich, colourful cinematography and great dialogue.
Every line that comes out of the mouth of Monsieur Gustave – who is excellently played by Ralph Feinnes is delivered with such expert comic timing, that upon second viewing I could barely look at anything else. The same can be said for every move made by M. Gustave.
Oddly enough, the first couple of times I tried to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel, I stopped within ten minutes. I just couldn’t get into the swing of it.
Having now seen the film more than once, please don’t let the initial slow-ish pace at the beginning dissuade you, for things get most interesting as soon as Monsieur Gustave is introduced, ten minutes in. That’s when the adventure truly begins. Watch it and see.
