Fighting with My Family: Film Review

I love Florence Pugh so I was keen to see her transforming into a WWE star for this comedy, written and directed by Stephen Merchant. I always had a positive feeling about it but it completely surpassed my expectations.

The Festival: Film Review

I am a massive fan of The Inbetweeners so I was obviously onboard with The Festival as soon as I heard the makers of the TV show were making a movie starring Joe Thomas, aka Simon from The Inbetweeners. If you liked their previous work, then you will enjoy The Festival.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War – Film Review

hunts2

When I saw Snow White and the Huntsman I never once thought ‘I need a back story for this character’ or ‘He needs his own movie’ so The Huntsman: Winter’s War, both a prequel and sequel, felt unnecessary and the movie itself did nothing to change that, but I’m glad it gave me the opportunity to see Jessica Chastain kicking ass, Charlize Theron being bloody terrifying and some hilarious dwarves.

Top Films For February

feb1

Dallas Buyers Club

Judging by the Golden Globe awards the lead actors got for this, I expect it to be amazing. Matthew McConaughey portrays the real-life Ron Woodroof, who is diagnosed with HIV at a time when the medication available in the US is not effective. He smuggles non-FDA approved drugs into the US and sets up a members club for other AIDS sufferers.

Cuban Fury

I’m sort of scrapping the barrel here but I’m really not bothered about most of the movies out this month. As the ones on offer go, I think this will be pretty funny because I love Nick Frost but would never have placed him in a salsa dancing competition movie. I imagine it will follow the same formula as other dance flicks but the British humour will make it enjoyable nonetheless. It also stars Olivia Colman, Rashida Jones and Chris O’Dowd.

Her

This looks so different and interesting. Joaquin Phoenix stars as a man who falls in love with his interactive operating system, named Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). Also starring Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde and Rooney Mara.

Non-Stop

This is another Liam Neeson action vehicle, this time aboard a plane. He plays an air marshal who ends up in a sticky situation when he gets blackmailed – if doesn’t get the feds to transfer a ton of money, a person will be killed every 20 minutes. There are a few twists and turns and it is a major whodunnit- which I love! Also starring Julianne Moore and Lupita Nyong’o.

There are many other movies out this month but they don’t grab me at all: Here’s a list of the big ones- Robocop, The Lego Movie,  The Invisible Woman, Mr Peabody & Sherman, Endless Love, The Monument’s Men, A Winter’s Tale,  The Book Thief and Ride Along.

Snow White & The Huntsman: World Premiere pictures

Tonight was the world premiere of Snow White & The Huntsman in London’s Leicester Square.

Many of the film’s stars graced the “enchanted forest” themed carpet, which was made of fake grass. Here are the best pics:

Chris Hemsworth 

Sam Claflin 

Nick Frost 

Nick and Chris were really friendly and happy to speak to the fans and sign autographs. Kristen was friendly and went through the motions but she seemed quite awkward. Charlize wasn’t particularly warm. She smiled and signed autographs but she went through really fast and didn’t speak much. I thought her dress was very odd and I didn’t like Kristen’s much either. Still I had a great evening, picked up a few autographs and spoke to Nick Frost!
