On account of fantasy not being my favourite genre, though I am quite curious about this Tolkien story, I’m more excited for big fans of the The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit movies.

I kind of just need to find out if I react to Tolkien the same way I did to The Lord Of The Rings movies.

Tolkien Release Dates: May 3rd, 2019 (UK); May 10th, 2019 (US)…

EXTREMELY WICKED, SHOCKINGLY EVIL AND VILE (2019): New Trailer From Zac Efron, Lily Collins, Angela Sarafyan, John Malkovich…

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019), Zac Efron, Lily Collins

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is a new Joe Berlinger directed biography / crime / thriller that chronicles the crimes of American serial killer Ted Bundy.

Starring Zac Efron, Lily Collins, Angela Sarafyan and John Malkovich, the story of Extremely Wicked is told from the perspective of Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer…

I want to believe I’ll be more impressed with the finished film than I currently am with the music choice and edit of this trailer, not that it’s terrible.

I also haven’t yet figured out whether releasing this trailer around the same time as the Netflix Ted Bundy documentary is a good idea. Either way, I want Efron to do well in this role.

Kaya Scodelario, Haley Joel Osment, Jeffrey Donovan and Jim Parsons also star.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile Release Dates: May 3rd, 2019 (UK)…

TO THE BONE (2017): New Trailer From Lily Collins, Keanu Reeves, Carrie Preston, Liana Liberato…

In To The Bone which stars Lily Collins, Keanu Reeves, Carrie Preston and Liana Liberato, Collins plays a young woman dealing with anorexia for whom hope comes in the shape of an unconventional doctor (Keanu Reeves)…

I’m interested to take in what this movie has to say about anorexia and how it says it. If I’m really honest though, another really big reason I’ll tune in is because I loved Carrie Preston’s character (Elsbeth Tascioni) in the hit drama series The Good Wife (2009 – 2016) and I’m curious to see her in what looks like a very different type of role.

Written and directed by Marti Noxon, To The Bone also stars Lili Taylor, Brooke Smith and Hana Hayes.

To The Bone Release Dates: July 14th, 2017 (US)…

Set in Hollywood in 1958, Rules Don’t Apply focuses on the relationship between three key characters working in hollywood. Namely, an aspiring actress her driver and the eccentric billionaire that employs them. Alden Ehrenreich, Lilly Collins, and Warren Beatty play the main roles. Beatty is also the film’s writer and director…

After finding that I didn’t quite enjoy the last movie I saw about Hollywood in the 1950s (Hail, Caesar! (2015), as much as I hoped I would, I’m not sure how this is going to turn out. Though, Annette Bening is one of my favourite actresses s0 we’ll see.

Annette Bening, Alec Baldwin and Chace Crawford also feature.

Rules Don’t Apply Release Dates: November, 2016 (US)…

STUCK IN LOVE (2012): Family, Love & Writing

Written / directed by Josh Boone and starring talent that includes Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly, Lilly Collins, Kristen Bell, Logan Lerman and Nat Wolff; Stuck In Love is a well acted family drama.

Watch it for a look into a year in the life of a family that consists of a successful Writer, his ex wife, their teenage children and particularly how all parties navigate through their own experiences of love.

This movie is definitely not too emotionally taxing. Actually… that may depend on how closely you relate to the character you identify with the most. Still, overall it’s a pleasant watch.

There’s also potential value for any Writers/ aspiring Writers and anyone generally curious about other families. I know I always am.

My favourite part is all the scenes Kristen Bell is in because her fun character is unlike any I’ve ever seen her play before.

LOVE, ROSIE (2014): In Love, Timing Is Everything

Love, Rosie: a story about two people who’ve been friends for a very long time and share feelings for each other but somehow they never seem to get it together.

It’s the kind of predicament where you find yourself thinking, if only one of them spoke honestly, just once about what was in their heart, things would be very different.

But, sometimes everything is supposed to be just as it is at that time. Of course this is not at all comforting when you’re in the middle of it all and timing is not on your side.

This is one of those love stories that isn’t too typical of the romantic comedy genre and the onscreen chemistry between Sam Claflin and Lily Collins, the leads of Director Christian Ditter’s movie is really quite something.

Watch it for the reasons above, and wonder how Lily Collins got that British accent just right. There’s also a a beautiful father/ daughter relationship to enjoy.

Happy Love Rosie 🙂
