Today’s crime thriller, starring Elijah Wood and Nicolas Cage looks promising…

I’m still holding onto the dream of seeing Cage in films I loved as much as I did Face/ Off (1997). Fingers, toes and everything crossed.

The Trust Release Dates: May 27th, 2016 (UK)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂

SNOWDEN (2016): New Trailer From Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Shailene Woodley

When I first saw the teaser trailer for writer / director Oliver Stone’s new film about Edward Snowden, I was disappointed that it didn’t reveal a little more than the films title – Snowden and a few facts about the protagonist…

However, I watched the teaser again some weeks later and was reminded that just because I wanted more footage there and then, doesn’t necessarily mean that I should have had it. Instead of being mad at the tease, my imagination did overtime as I began to picture all sorts of dramatic scenes. Scenes with dialogue as engaging as the brilliant as screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s words in The Social Network  Would’t that be fantastic?

Even if Snowden turns out to be nothing like The Social Network, all that really matters is that it’s good. Just as well then that the below trailer looks mighty promising.

THE RUNNER (2015): There Was Something I liked…

Knowing that Nicolas Cage’s career hasn’t exactly seen anything close to the heights of his Face/Off (1997) days, I was hoping that The Runner, directed by Austin Stark would be one step in the right direction.

Having now seen the film, theres plenty worse out there, of course but The Runner just isn’t a movie I would think to recommend. On the positive side, it does move quite quickly and it doesn’t run on too long. The story also highlights the unavoidable fallibility of the human and reminds us that hypocrisy is innate in everyone. As with most things of course, there’s a spectrum.

Connie Nielsen, Peter Fonda and Wendell Pierce also star.

Happy Film Loving. It’s just unlikely that you’ll love this one. 🙂

THE RUNNER (2015): New From Nicolas Cage & Promising…

I’m convinced that the fact I haven’t watched a Nicolas Cage film in a while is finally going to change.

The reason? A new trailer for the Austin Stark directed, The Runner which also stars Connie Nielsen, Sarah Paulson and Peter Fonda.

The idealistic and flawed congressman character played by Cage is certainly intriguing.
