Based on a novel by Herman Koch, The Dinner which stars Rebecca Hall, Richard Gere, Laura Linney and Steve Coogan is a mystery/ thriller about how far parents will go to protect their children when they do something unspeakable…

Directed by Oren Moverman and also starring Chloë Sevigny, I trust that this will be good. The main draw besides the interesting premise is Laura Linney. The lady always impresses. Always!

The Dinner Release Dates: May 5th, 2017 (US)…

The subject of Sully is Chesley Sullenberger, the airplane pilot who became a hero after saving 155 passengers. Directed by Clint Eastwood;  Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart and Anna Gunn star…

The combination of Eastwood and Hanks will make this worthwhile.

May everyone be  organised enough not to watch this too close to an airplane trip.

Sully Release Dates: September 9th, 2016 (US); December 1st, 2016 (GER); December 2nd, 2016 (UK)…

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.

Genius Release Dates: July 29th, 2016 (US)…

LOVE ACTUALLY (2003): Sweet, Funny & Perfectly British

Set in London, England, Love Actually is a romantic comedy written and directed by Richard Curtis, the man responsible for hit films such as Notting Hill (1999), Bridget Jone’s Diary (2001) and most recently, About Time (2013).

Focused on the love lives of several couples in the month leading up to Christmas, Curtis’s cast represent an excellent selection of some of the UK’s best acting talent. It is a cast that includes – to name just a few, Bill Nighy, Andrew Lincoln, Keira Knightley, Emma Thompson, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Liam Neeson.

In Love Actually, what Curtis has delivered is a very sweet and funny movie. Along with the classically British humour and eccentricities, there’s a healthy sprinkling of romance, drama and family – just the perfect balance for the holiday season.

On the other hand, there are one or two situations / relationships that I didn’t find particularly believable. Not to say that they would never happen, but they certainly felt like a stretch. Still, it is after all the holiday season so perhaps magic is supposed to happen?

My inability to believe in love aside… 🙂  Love Actually is a well paced holiday movie with all the right sentiments. I know christmas is not quite here yet but I watched it anyway, for the love and humour.

My favourite of the all the couples would have to be Billy and Joe in the recording studio, Sarah and Karl at the office and Judy and Jack… who doesn’t like Judy and Jack?

Happy Love Actually and season’s greetings 🙂
