A young woman is found murdered and the prime suspect is a ‘happily married’ professor with a reputation.

Directed by Simon Kaijser, the key characters are played by Guy Pearce, Odeya Rush, Minnie Driver and Pierce Brosnan…

Pearce always plays interesting characters; that’s the reason I’ll be watching this hopefully satisfying thriller.

Sterling Beaumon, Alexandra Shipp, Sean Blakemore, Clark Gregg and Jamie Kennedy also star.

THE FOREIGNER (2017): New Trailer From Jackie Chan, Pierce Brosnan…

Martin Campbell –  the director of Casino Royale (2006), a.k.a. my favourite James Bond movie of all time is the director of The Foreigner, the new Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan action / thriller set in London, England. Chan’s character is a man whose daughter is killed by an Irish Republican Army (IRA) bomb. The police are not doing much to help him so he takes matters into his own hands…

This trailer could definitely have been shorter but I’m still excited because the film looks  good. I confess to having screamed ‘Jackie!’ a couple of times in delighted surprise as the trailer played. I kind of feel as though I have even more reason than usual to be proud of Jackie Chan.

First of all, the man is 63 years old and seems to be incredibly convincing physically as an action star. Second, on my trip to L.A., I took one of those open top bus tours to Beverly Hills and I saw him outside his home. To me, that means that my… what some might describe as ‘extreme joy’ at seeing him in a very promising trailer is super justified because we ‘kind of met’ once.

I definitely haven’t watched most of Chan’s movies but I’ll always be a fan because of Rush Hour 2 (2001) in particular. Without that movie, I may have never found out that contrary to what I used to believe, there is actually a way for me to enjoy karaoke after all.

Fingers crossed that the finished product proves worthy of all my enthusiasm.

The Foreigner Release Dates: October 13th, 2017 (US)…

Starring Kate Beckinsale, Kiersey Clemons, Pierce Brosnan, Callum Turner and set in New York City, The Only Living Boy In New York is all about a recent college graduate whose life is upended by his father’s mistress…

I’m curious about the heartbreak that’s sure to find the protagonist. That’s my reason for watching – along with my curiosity about Callum Turner. I’m curious because he looks like someone I used to know in high school and I want to reminisce.

Cynthia Nixon, Debi Mazar and Faith Logan also star.

SOME KIND OF BEAUTIFUL (2014): Not Perfect But There’s Something I LIked…

Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba star in Some Kind Of Beautiful. A Tom Vaughn directed drama/ romance set in England and LA.

Some Kind Of Beautiful is unfortunately not the most well executed movie I’ve seen recently. Its ills include the dialogue, general execution – particularly the lines delivered by Malcolm McDowell and aspects of the story that just don’t make sense to me, in terms of the character’s motivations or lack there of.

I tuned in firstly because I was in the mood for an onscreen romance. Secondly I wanted to watch a movie that wasn’t too demanding of my attention and lastly, I love Salma Hayek, a gifted actress and all round very smart woman.

There are things I did enjoy about Some Kind Of Beautiful and they include the soundtrack, the relationship between the sisters and the sunny LA location. I love to travel, you see. Even when I have to do it using mainly my imagination. 🙂

Watch it if something about the movie strongly appeals or if you really, really must.
