Timothee Chalamet in Call Me By Your Name

Here are my hot takes on today’s Oscar nominations.

Vice: Film Review

Vice received the most nominations for this year’s Golden Globes so I just assumed it would be a movie I would like and I was excited to check it out – so naturally, I was surprised that I didn’t like the movie much at all.

My Christopher Nolan top five

Christopher Nolan‘s latest effort Dunkirk comes out on Friday and while I’m in the minority of people who didn’t love it (read my review here), it certainly makes my top five.

The Promise: Film Review

All I knew about The Promise was that Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale were in it, and I was sold, so I had no idea I was in for an intense war epic about the Armenian Genocide. The story was fascinating in a horrifying way but something was off – I should have been in tears and breaking my heart, but I was unmoved.

The Big Short: Film Review

short1

I did not expect a film about the financial crisis to be interesting and entertaining, but The Big Short manages to do both thanks to a terrific cast including Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt and a script which tries hard to make the financial jargon simple.

Top Films for January

jan1

A new month and year is rapidly approaching and January brings with it an amazing selection of new films. The month always seems to be filled with stellar movies and Oscar bait and this one is no exception. We also have a lot of movies that have been out in the US for a while so I can’t wait to finally see them. Here are my picks:

Exodus: Gods and Kings Film Review

Now, I am not a fan of the Biblical epic, but I am a massive admirer of Christian Bale’s work and so I still had to check this out. I have to admit: I do not know my Bible stories very well so my knowledge ahead of seeing this was incredibly limited – and I think you would be better off going in with a basic overview of Moses’ story.

Exodus: Gods and Kings World Premiere

The stars of the latest Biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings, headed to London’s Leicester Square on Wednesday night to unveil their movie for the world premiere. Sadly, I didn’t get close to Christian Bale or Ridley Scott but Sir Ben Kingsley came over for a chat, as did Joel Edgerton (plus I got a ticket to the see the movie!)

Big Pics: Miley Cyrus, JT & Kim Kardashian

Miley Cyrus

What is Miley smoking?! It looks pretty suspicious. She didn’t seem to care puffing away while on a balcony in Miami though. She must have known paps would be able to see her.

Kim Kardashian

Kim was hit by rumours that she was faking her pregnancy this week- which is just ridiculous. The reality star decided to post this on Twitter to prove her bump is genuine. Reports were suggesting that she is making it up just because she has put on a load of weight. That is so stupid.

Justin Timberlake & Kiefer Sutherland

Who knew these guys were friends?! Weird pairing, but I guess it makes sense if they both go to the same golf club. JT loves his golf, which is something I don’t get.

Christina Hendricks

I love this shot. If her enviable curves weren’t enough, Christina spoke about how Ryan Gosling picked her to star in his directorial debut, How To Catch a Monster.

She told Flare magazine: “Talk about feeling intimidated. Ryan called me and asked me if I was interested in doing this film and I said: ‘One, of course, yes, and two, why me? And three, I don’t want to disappoint you.’ It’s the largest role I’ve ever had, so this is one I’m definitely aware of my anxiety about.”

Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner & Christian Bale

Earlier in the week, we showed you Bradley Cooper’s perm and Jennifer Lawrence’s amazing hairdo (see here) for their roles in a currently untitled David O Russell movie. Now you can see the 80s transformations of Amy, Jeremy and Christian for the FBI thriller. Jeremy plays a mayor, Christian is Mel, a con artist and Amy is Mel’s mistress and partner in crime. The cast for this is amazing- I hope the movie is just as good!

Christian Bale visits grief-stricken Aurora

Batman actor Christian Bale paid a visit to Aurora, Colorado today to visit the victims and their families of the cinema shooting.

Twelve people were killed and fifty injured after James Holmes opened fire inside the cinema which was screening Bale’s latest film, The Dark Knight Rises.

Bale went “of his own accord” and was not sent or pressured into it by anybody else. Warner Brothers are also planning to make a donation to the victims of the shooting. Bale’s co-stars Anne Hathaway and Joseph Gordon-Levitt plus director Christoper Nolan have all expressed their condolences via statements or through Twitter.

Despite the grey cloud shadowing the movie, the final instalment in the franchise still managed to make £100 million in it’s opening weekend in the US. It took £14 million over here.
