If you are 18+ then obviously you will be seeing Gone Girl this weekend but there are some alternatives…
Soul Boys Of The Western World
A documentary about Spandau Ballett should that be something you felt was currently missing from your life.
Life After Beth
Beth dies! Beth comes back to life! Romantic zombie comedy (yes, another one) starring Aubrey Plaza as the undead Beth. Reviews are mixed so be warned.
Some film about Dracula. The “untold” part simply refers to the fact that this precise film has never been made before. Like all films. This is like adding “The Movie” to the end of your title. (Or ICYMI to the start of your tweet. Bastards.)
Dolphin Tale 2
I feel sorry for parents this weekend as office conversations on Monday morning will come to a halt when their response to “did you see Gone Girl this weekend?” is “no, but we did catch Dolphin Tale 2”.
I have no idea. it has something to do with the NFL which is a blissful mystery to me.
Hindi action adventure comedy with a title that tells you so little and so much at the same time.
Hindi drama in which some really dramatic stuff happens. Definitely a more stoic film that the previous.
Still the Enemy Within
Documentary about the miners’ strike as told by the miners. No mention of Bill Nighy or LGBT.
Withnail & I
If you’ve seen it and like it then why not see it on the big screen? If you’ve not seen it then why not see it on the big screen? If you’ve seen it and dislike it then why not see Gone Girl on the big screen?
Tony Benn: Will and Testament
I’ve been sent an above average number of emails about this documentary exploring the life of Labour MP Tony Benn but I have nervously ignored them because I am completely oblivious to the man in question. The only solution to this would be to watch a documentary about him but as mentioned I feel too uninformed to watch it. It is a vicious cycle of ignorance.
Biopic of French author Violette Leduc. May contain scenes of French.
You and the Night
“Around midnight, a young couple and their transvestite maid prepare for an orgy. Their guests will be The Slut, The Star, The Stud and The Teen.” Just when you thought this list was flagging I pulled you back in! You perv.
“After losing their baby, Grant and Christine visit a friend in his isolated and idyllic seaside house. Over a long weekend, secrets are revealed and the life of the dead child is lived out in a series of fantastical dreams.” I am flagging.
