Joker: Venice Film Review

Courtesy of La Biennale di Venezia

Woah, I thought I was prepared for Joker, but it turns out I wasn’t. Because the iconic Batman villain has been seen on screen many times before, you think you know what his origins film will be like but you don’t. Joker will shock and surprise you A LOT.

Joy: Film Review

I must admit I wasn’t particularly bothered about Joy because the story seemed a bit lame, but I love Jennifer Lawrence so I always going to see it anyway. It turns out the film is brilliant, inspiring and one that makes you feel like you can achieve anything.

The Intern: Film Review

The Intern is a sweet and enjoyable little comedy, like most Nancy Meyers films. I loved the concept – a culture/generation clash between old and young – and the casting of Robert de Niro and Anne Hathaway is perfect.

What a cool moment! I bet Ed was overwhelmed meeting the legend that is Robert De Niro.

Hayden is having a laugh with Sophia Bush and Nashville co-star Connie Britton at the White House Correspondents Dinner.  I love seeing celebs hanging out together. I have no idea who the dude at the bottom is!

Katy Perry

While in DC, Katy decided to hang out with ol’ Abraham Lincoln. Her caption was merely “sup?”

Who is the mystery lady that Johnny is holding hands with?! Well, according to the press it is his Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard. You can’t really tell from this picture, but you can tell it is her in the picture below next to Johnny’s hunched body.

Top Films This June

LOL

This coming-of-age drama stars Miley Cyrus as Lola and Demi Moore as her mum Anne. It tells the story of a mother-daughter relationship which has become strained due to the advancement in technology. When Anne reads Lola’s racy journal, she realises how disconnected they’ve become and she tries to close the gap between herself and her daughter. On Lola’s side, we see her romances and friendships with the burden of overbearing parents. Despite the crap title, I reckon this will be a sweet little film. Released 1st June.

 

Prometheus

I have already seen this movie and you can read my full review here. It is enjoyable but certainly not as amazing as I had hoped or expected. Great cast and effects but poor characterisation, bad scripting and a very confusing plot. Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Logan-Marshall Green and Idris Elba. Released 1st June.

 

Cosmopolis

I really want to see this purely because I’m interested in seeing Robert Pattinson star in something so bad-ass and grown-up. This feels like a gangster flick. Robert plays Eric Packer who is a multi-billionaire asset manager who gets into his ultra-fancy limo to take a journey through Manhattan to get his hair cut. He seems to encounter random events throughout his day such as a funeral procession and a riot as well as some sexual liaisons. Later in the day, things get a bit ominous as he is stalked by two men and he starts losing serious money for his clients, including his wife, ensuring his inevitable downfall. Mysterious. Released 15th June.

 

Red Lights

This film seems to have fallen under the radar but it looks really good and definitely worth a watch. The story follows psychologist Margaret (Sigourney Weaver) and her assistant Tom (Cillian Murphy) who start investigating a world renowned psychic when they start studying paranormal activity. The psychic Simon Silver (Robert De Niro) has resurfaced years after his toughest critic passed away, making him seem very suspicious. But what is he hiding? And what will he do to people nosing around in his business? Released 15th June.

 

Rock of Ages

This looks like so much fun! Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta star as Sherrie and Drew, two employees of The Bourbon Room who fall in love during the glam-rock era of the 1980s. The story is narrated by Russell Brand’s character Lonny, the manager of the club. The main reason I want to see it is because Tom Cruise is playing Stacee Jaxx, the lead singer of a rock group called Arsenal and somewhat of a legend. It is great to see him doing something so different and less serious. The film features great songs of the 80s and it will definitely leave you feeling good! Catherine Zeta-Jones is the baddie who wants to shut the club down. The all-star cast is completed by Bryan Cranston, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti and Mary J Blige. Released 15th June.

 

Friends With Kids

Two best friends (Julie and Jason) decide to have a child together and not have a relationship because they’ve seen their friends’ marriages suffer through having children. That sounds like something we’ve seen before and a bit far-fetched but the reason I want to see this is the cast. The supporting cast is made up of Bridesmaids cast members- Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jon Hamm and Chris O’Dowd. They make up the friendship circle around the two friends and they definitely provide the humour. At first, their attempts at raising their kid work fine until Jason starts a relationship with Mary-Jane (Megan Fox) and Julie starts dating Kurt (Edward Burns). I’m sure it will have a predictable ending but I’m also happy to watch the humour along the way. Plus, I’m a massive Kristen Wiig fan. Released 29th June.
