FLIGHT (2012): For Denzel Washington’s Great Performance & That Excellent Ending…

From the acclaimed director of Forrest Gump (1994) and the much loved Back To The Future movies, Robert Zemeckis, I knew that Flight would be worth my time and not just because it came highly recommended by a fellow film lover. The films’s star is Denzel Washington – another great reason to watch, as is an interest in the story of a skilled airplane pilot whose personal demons lead him to both endanger and save the lives of his passengers

A well written and told story, one of my favourite highlights is the ‘courtroom’ scene towards the end. I knew it was coming and I couldn’t wait. The dialogue and general back and forth with Denzel’s character and the person (s) questioning him proved worth the wait.  Overall though, my absolute favourite moment in Flight has to be the actual ending. That last scene says so very much in just a few simple words. If you haven’t already, I say watch it for the Denzel magic and  much more.

Wonderful French actress Marion Cotillard and Brad Pitt have a new movie. Set in 1942 during the second world war and directed by Robert Zemeckis, at the centre of Allied is the relationship between Marianne Beausejour, a French Resistance Fighter (Cotillard) and Intelligence Officer Max Vatan (Pitt)…

Looks like Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2007) on a higher level and maybe even more badass.

Lizzy Caplan, Matthew Goode, Raffey Cassidy and Charlotte Hope also star.

Allied Release Dates: November 20th, 2016 (US); November 25th, 2016 (UK)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂

THE WALK (2015): New Trailer In Which Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is Philippe Petitte…

The trailer is out for The Walk, the new Robert Zemeckis directed film based on French High-Wire artist Philippe Petit. 

The international cast is led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and includes Ben Kingsley,  Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz...

What appears to lie ahead is an exciting risk taking adventure. Though I’m not quite sure yet whether I’ll be able to completely suspend my disbelief when it comes to the French accent.

Still, somehow the story of a man who chooses to walk on a wire from great heights and without any safety precautions is probably interesting enough to convince me. That is of course unless I opt for the 2008 documentary, Man on Wire instead.
