News Update :


Friday, 3 February 2012

There are a couple of good movies out this week but it’s nothing spectacular, nothing that makes me really want to get up and go to the cinema, it really doesn’t seem to matter what is released lately nothing seems to be able to knock War Horse from the top spot. I don’t think anything this week will be changing that so without further adieu let’s see what’s new at your local cinema.

The weeks biggest release has to go to CHRONICLE, the new superhero movie brought to us by Josh Trank, the movies stars Dane DeHaan, Alex Russel and Michael B. Jordan.

Chronicle is the tale of three American teenagers who one day make a discovery that will change their lives, the three gain superpowers which at first in the movie are used to comic effect. However Chronicle quickly turns face from your normal teenage prank comedy down a darker route with the tag line “what are you capable of” the movie switches to a horror genre with one of the kids using his powers for a more sinister adventure, before long the kids lives are spinning out of control as the three embrace their darker sides.

If I had to liken this to anything I would have to say Skins or Misfits from the UK’s channel 4, it certainly does not resemble any of the big Hollywood superhero adventures we are used to, take a look at the trailer and let me know what you think.

Next up this week its MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, I have to be honest I thought this was a chick flick until I saw the review on Film 2012 with Claudia Winkleman. The movie stars Elizabeth Olsen, Sarah Paulson and John Hawkes;

This is not a chick flick, in fact it’s more of a psychological thriller which centre’s on Martha (Olsen) a girl who for two years lived in a hippie like cult, not liking the lifestyle she escapes and goes to live with her sister and brother in law where she becomes known as Marcy May, her family soon discover that Marcy May is haunted by dreams from her past and before long she is struggling to separate dreams from reality as she can’t stop the past resurfacing the family realise that Marcy may need more help than they can provide.

Although this movie is not what I thought I still think that it will be very good, on Film 2012 they were surprised that it hasn’t been mentioned for Oscars and from what I gather Elizabeth Olsen is a lot more talented than her older siblings Mary-Kate and Ashley.

For the kids this week JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, the follow up to 2008’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth and stars Josh Hutcherson, Dwayne Johnson and Michael Caine.

It’s a kiddies adventure movie and it’s in 3D, so no doubt it will do quite well at the theatre, I have never seen the original so won’t be going to see this adventure either. The story centere’s on Sean Anderson (Hutcherson) who convinces his mothers boyfriend Hank (Johnson) to help him find his grandfather (Michael Caine) who is missing on a mythical island.

It’s green screen galore with lots of wildlife and scenery, I don’t think it will be anywhere near as good as Avatar but that is what you could liken it to, enjoy the trailer I have posted below.
