Today is quite a good day for releases, a mix of quality films, romantic comedies and 3D kids movies. Pick your date movie…. now!
Gnomeo & Juliet
A fully British cast, complete with our own Jason Statham, retell Shakespeare using gnomes. You get the feeling this is little more than a clumsy pun taken too far.
Just Go With It
Jennifer Aniston once made films you wouldn’t be ashamed to have on DVD. Though looking at her filmography, that hasn’t been for nine years now, I doubt this will be a return to form.
Never Let Me Go
A beautiful love story with a bit of a difference, something the trailer has thankfully not revealed. We really liked it, and not least because it features Andrew Garfield.
The plot becomes almost irrelevant when the Coens are involved but for the sake of it: “A tough U.S. Marshal helps a stubborn young woman track down her father’s murderer.” The perfect film for Valentines day if your significant other has a taste for quality film and has already seen Never Let Me Go.
Someone wants to close Jellystone Park so Yogi, Boo Boo and Ranger Smith team up to ruin our childhoods.
My Kidnapper (limited release)
Documentary in which a kidnappee receives an email from a former kidnapper and goes to meet him. Should be pretty powerful stuff. No joke.
Son Of Babylon (limited release)
“A willful young boy follows his just as obstinate grandmother in a journey across Iraq, determined to discover the fate of her missing son, Ahmed’s father, who never returned from war.”
Two In The Wave (limited release)
The dramatic story of a friendship that shaped French cinema. Can you sense I’m running out of time?
