The cinemas are back! Here’s what you can watch

Spiral: From the Book of Saw

Cinemas in England have been closed since December and I am SO excited for them to reopen tomorrow! I have missed them so much! To make up for lost time, I have got two films booked in on Monday and three overall this week.

Films don’t generally get released on Mondays, but to celebrate the return of cinemas, the following four movies were given the release date of Monday 17th May. Here’s all the info:

Spiral: From the Book of Saw

Get ready for more elaborately gruesome, wince-inducing traps – the Saw franchise is back! This ninth instalment stars Chris Rock and Max Minghella as two cops who investigate grisly murders which bear an uncanny resemblance to the work of the Jigsaw killer. This instalment is said to have more comedy moments and a social justice angle, in addition to the gore.

Those Who Wish Me Dead

Taylor Sheridan‘s new thriller has an amazing cast which includes Angelina Jolie, Nicholas Hoult, Jon Bernthal and Aidan Gillen. Jolie plays a smokejumper who goes on the run with a teenager murder witness in the Montana wilderness to escape a pair of assassins hired to silence him. This is my first screening tomorrow and I’m excited for it.

Peter Rabbit 2

More animated hijinks in this sequel to the 2018 family adventure. Domhnall Gleeson and Rose Byrne return as the live-action leads, who are now married and living happily with the animated Peter (voiced by James Corden) and his family. But Peter gets restless and bored with blissful garden life and causes chaos (as always) by going to the big city.

The Unholy

And for people who like their horrors more supernatural than gory, there’s The Unholy, starring The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan. It follows a hearing-impaired girl who is visited by the Virgin Mary and can suddenly hear, speak and heal the sick. People flock to witness her miracles but terrifying events unfold. Sounds spooky!

Those are all the new releases but plenty of cinemas are showing some awards season films – the most popular listings are for Nomadland, Sound of Metal and Judas and the Black Messiah – new blockbusters like Mortal Kombat and Godzilla vs. Kong as well as old classics.

If you feel comfortable to do so, please go and support your local cinema when you can! I personally cannot wait to switch off my phone and devote my entire attention to a movie surrounded my like-minded film fans.

I’m so ready for Maggie to get her moment to shine in The Walking Dead

I have been growing bored with The Walking Dead and its All-Out War storyline for a while now, so the finale left me really excited because it hinted that things were going to change massively, and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) would be leading the charge.

The Walking Dead finale was distinctly meh

So The Walking Dead has been plodding along at a deathly pace, getting everything in line for last tonight’s ‘explosive’ finale so after weeks of build up and filler, I was expecting something epic so I was seriously disappointed.

The Walking Dead was brutal in the best possible way

The season seven premiere of The Walking Dead aired on Sunday night so I got up in the morning UK time to watch it so it wouldn’t be spoiled and I’m so glad I did. The episode is shocking, gross and amazing in a way that would not have stayed secret for long (no way I would have got through Twitter or work) and I don’t blame these people cos I need to talk about it too! Hence my episode review…

The Walking Dead finale: My predictions

twd1

I watched The Walking Dead finale last night (with U.K. TV) and spent the whole evening reeling and reading fan theories about what it all means and I’ve finally come to my own conclusions about who has been killed off or who should be. Caution: spoilers up ahead (obviously).
