Michiel Huisman, Teresa Palmer and Sam Reid’s latest movie is about a man whose life is derailed when an ominous pattern of events repeats itself in exactly the same manner every day, ending at precisely 2:22 p.m.
Directed by Paul Currie, I’m intrigued by this trailer mainly because of Huisman. Though, I’m certainly not convinced that the end result will be great. Maybe a shorter version of the trailer that wasn’t forced to end precisely at 2:22 minutes would have made me feel better. Who knows. Whilst we’re at it, I’d also like it for this movie to have something thought provoking to say about the patterns that keep repeating in our lives. That way I can be forced to eat my words. I wouldn’t mind that in the slightest.
A young woman is travelling alone, she meets an intriguing guy, ends up at his place and wakes up to find that she can’t leave. This is the story of Berlin Syndrome, a passionate holiday romance that turns into an unhealthily obsessive relationship. Directed by Cate Shortland, Teresa Palmer, Max Riemelt and Lucie Aron star…
Berlin Syndrome may end up being my favourite of Palmer’s perforamnces to date. Especially since I don’t currently have one. Intriguing subject matter, I just have to be ready to be uncomfortable for the length of the film.
Also, I don’t know if the right advice should be that soon-to-be female solo travellers should watch this or that they shouldn’t.
If you’re a movie fan, you know who Ryan Gosling is. If you know who Ryan Gosling is, then you’ve probably at least heard of The Notebook (2004) – that hugely romantic movie loved by lovers of love, all over. And, if you’ve heard about the notebook, you may know that Nicholas Sparks is the writer. I’ve seen The Notebook once and it was a great experience. I cried like many who may or may not admit to doing so. Today actually isn’t really about the The Notebook. It’s about the The Choice (2016), the latest of Sparks’s books to be adapted into a movie.
Starring Teresa Palmer, Benjamin Walker and Alexandra Daddario, The Choice is unfortunately not the greatest of Nicholas Sparks’s movies. There may have been one or two very brief moments where my disbelief may have been completely suspended, but overall, most of the time I was only too aware that I wasn’t just watching a movie – but I was watching one and thinking, ‘wow, this really isn’t very good.’
The Notebook is in no way everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ but can it be accused of being unconvincing as far as some of the acting goes? Can it also be accused of containing romantic dialogue that feels forced and inauthentic? I don’t think so.
I tuned in to The Choice because the mood for a romantic movie hit. By the endof the film, the only real great thing I could find about the experience is that the location where it’s shot is beautiful! I think I maybe want to vacation there one day. Also, at least it wasn’t so awful that I had to quit before the end. There is always that, I suppose.
Andrew Garfield is the star of Mel Gibson’s latest film, Hacksaw Ridge. Garfield plays real life WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, a man who joins the army but refuses to kill people…
I don’t know what the word is for how this trailer makes me feel but I know I’ll have to be in the right mood to sit and watch. It seems to have a kind of Forrest Gump quality but pulls even harder at the heartstrings; all of which makes me think that the end product is going to be dare I say, overly sappy.
Perhaps I’d be more intrigued had the trailer not revealed so much. All that has been left out of this trailer appears to be the presentation of the Medal of Honour. As continues to be the case, I ‘m missing the good trailers of the past that really cleverly showed you only enough and never too much.
Just when I feared things were slowing down trailer-wise because Christmas is coming…Chiwetel Ejiofor, Norman Reedus, Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet and Aaron Paul have a brand new trailer and this Red Band version is gritty, riotous and explosive. Perhaps a ‘Valentines day romantic movie’ antidote; especially so considering the US release date is February 2016…
Triple 9 is from John Hillcoat, a name you may recognise because he’s the director behind the rather good Tom Hardy and Guy Pearce movie, Lawless (2012).
I want to take a moment to say well done to the trailer maker because it’s great that very little of the plot has been revealed but yet I’m hooked. It’s probably best that I savour this moment because by the time trailer 2, 3 and maybe even 4 come around, I’ll know far more than I could ever want prior to the movie.
So looking forward to this and very excited to see what looks like a seriously badass turn from Kate Winslet.
The original Point Break action film directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starring Patrick Swaze, Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey was a hit. 23 years later, it’s time for a remake.
This time, starring Luke Bracey, Edgar Ramirez, Teresa Palmer and Ray Winstone, director Ericsson Core’s plot appears to be roughly the same except for a new character or two and some added relevance for modern times.
2015 Trailer >
The good news is, I didn’t find myself laughing out loud at the new trailer the way I did at its predecessor, so that’s a good sign… probably.
