Directed by Saul Dibb; starring Paul Bettany, Sam Claflin and Asa Butterfield, Journey’s End is a war movie set in a dugout in Aisne, France in 1918.

Journey’s End is a story in which a group of British soldiers who are awaiting their fate and happen to be led by the the mentally disintegrating young officer Stanhope (Claflin)…

I’m interested because this trailer reminds me of a somewhat similar war movie I enjoyed more than expected. Namely, The Siege of Jadotville (2016), I’m onlso intrigued by the ‘mentally disintegrating young officer’ angle.

Stephen Graham, Toby Jones, Tom Sturridge and Theo Barklem-Biggs also star.

Journey’s End Release Dates: February 2nd 2018 (UK)…

Happy Film Loving

Written and directed by Paul Bettany, Shelter is not the kind of love story you can expect around Valentine’s day…

Starring Anthony Mackie and Jennifer Connelly, it’s the film’s intriguing character stories, their seemingly unique experience and the New York City setting that has me very curious indeed.

Release Date (s): November 13th 2015 (US limited release), November 27th 2015 (UK)…

Happy Film loving 🙂

MORTDECAI (2015): The Thing I Loved

I remember being very excited after seeing the Mordecai teaser trailer in late 2014, for reasons including very promising dialogue and Johnny Depp.

What I didn’t anticipate is that upon seeing the David Koepp directed movie, my favourite thing about it would be the aerial shot special effects for the film’s various locations.

Why this particular response? It’s the overcooked accents that spoilt the experience really. Not to say that everything else about the movie is great, mind you. It may simply be the case that Charlie Mordecai’s particular brand of eccentricity is really just  best enjoyed in small doses. I.e. the movie’s fun trailer.

Am I missing something? Did anyone absolutely love it?

Happy Film Loving, though, for me, I guess not in this case :-(…  :-)
