Top Films for April

Divergent

I have already seen this and as a fan of the book, I give it a big thumbs-up. It deserves more but it has been lumped into the same boat as The Hunger Games and will not fare as well in comparison. Read my review here. Shailene Woodley stars as Tris in this dystopian world where the inhabitants are split into factions. She doesn’t fit into one, she is divergent, and that makes her dangerous. Released: 4th

The Double

I want to see this purely to see Jesse Eisenberg plays two people – his shy, boring character goes so unnoticed that nobody is aware of the weirdness when his mega-confident doppelganger arrives. This looks so interesting. Released: 4th

The Last Days on Mars

We have had our fair share of scary space movies but I will still love this. Leiv Schreiber heads up the cast in this horror in which an exploratory mission to Mars hits the skids when a deadly lifeform is found. Released: 11th

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

I’m a sucker for superhero movies and I have been psyched for this for ages. Andrew Garfield is back as Spidey, who is welcomed by the citizens of New York. He has a tough battle on his hands when old friend Harry Osbourn makes a return and isn’t the nice guy he seems. Not content with one villain – there are THREE with Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as Rhino. Released: 18th

The Love Punch

I love Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan and this looks hilarious. They are hell bent on revenge when Brosnan’s boss robs them of their retirement money so they plan a jewellery heist to make up for it. Released: 18th

The Other Woman

Cameron Diaz thinks she is in a great relationship until she realises she is ‘the other woman’ as her man is married. Rather than fight about it, she teams up with his wife, played by Leslie Mann, to plot revenge on him, especially when he sets his sights on someone else (Kate Upton). Hilarious. I also can’t wait to see Nicki Minaj’s acting debut. Released: 25th

Tracks

This looks a really powerful piece of cinema but sadly, it won’t be released nationwide. Mia Wasikowska stars as an Australian who embarks on a 1,700 mile trek across the desert with her camels, dog and a photojournalist, played by Girls’ Adam Driver. It’s hard to see how it can sustain a film but it looks very uplifting. Released: 25th

Transcendence

Johnny Depp plays a terminally ill scientist who downloads his mind into a computer, which gives him unstoppable power. Is it a good idea? This is weird, scary and I think I’ll end up confused. But hey, it’s worth a crack. Released: 25th
