Ghostbusters III – Ghostbusteresses? The idea of a third film just gets worse and worse!

ghostbusters-iiiGhostbusters III is something that might’ve been half an idea in the early 1990s, after the wonderful 1984 original, but then we later had the dismal sequel, Ghostbusters II, in 1989.

Over the years, there’s been talks of endless rewrites, rebooting the franchise with young Ghostbusters, Bill Murray not being at all interested, only a cameo from Harold Ramis – who sadly passed away in February last year, and then… an all-female Ghostbusters movie. Everything we’ve ever heard about it all sounds like a collection of bad ideas.

But, the latter option appears to have won through.

Who’s up for it?

Desert Dancer – Official Trailer #1 – Freida Pinto Movie HD

desert-dancerDesert Dancer tells the tale of Afshin Ghaffarian (Reece Ritchie) and his friends, who, despite the dangers, form an underground dance company where, via hacking into YouTube, they learn from the very best – Michael Jackson, Pina Bausch, Gene Kelly and Rudolf Nureyev.

Reveling in the freedom of expression that dance gives them, they set upon putting on a performance deep in the desert, away from the watchful eyes of the military police.

Desert Dancer prides itself as (get ready to pass the sick bag) “a classic hero story about brave young people risking their lives to rebel against their government and fight for their dreams….” I told you.

Also starring Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), plus Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Cullen, Marama Corlett and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Simon Kassianides, Desert Dancer doesn’t yet have a UK release date but is out in the US on April 10th. Even when it does come out over here, I won’t be rushing to see it…

The Intruders – Official Trailer #1 (2015) – Miranda Cosgrove Movie HD

the-intrudersThe Intruders is nothing to do with the recent TV series, Intruders, but is instead yet another of those apparent thrillers where someone new moves into a house which has a spooky past. Those new people are teenager Rose Halshford (Miranda Cosgrove, right) and her Dad, Jerry (Donal Logue), and weird stuff starts happening at the hands of Tom Sizemore, Jenessa Grant and Austin Butler.

After the traumatic loss of her mother, a teenaged girl tries to uncover the dark secrets behind her new home, in spite of her father’s disbelief.

The Intruders is released in the US on February 24th but hasn’t yet got a UK release date. It’s possibly worth a watch.

Check out the trailer below:

The Fantastic Four – Official Teaser Trailer #1 (2015) – Miles Teller, Michael B Jordan Movie HD

The Fantastic FourThe Fantastic Four is not a third film in the series following the so-so 2005 reboot, but is yet another reboot, this time starring Whiplash‘s Miles Teller as Mr Fantastic, Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman, Michael B Jordan as The Human Torch and Jamie Bell as The Thing… yet, Billy Elliot! Then again, Bell was also up to all kinds of naughtyness in Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac, so all bets are off!

This new version is (it says here) a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centring on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

The Fantastic Four also stars Reg E Cathey, Tim Blake Nelson and The Veteran‘s Toby Kebbell, and is directed by Josh Trank, who wrote the daft but engaging Chronicle and is released in the UK on August 6th.

She’s Funny That Way – Official Trailer #1 – Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston Movie HD

She's Funny That WayShe’s Funny That Way stars Owen Wilson as Arnold, a married Broadway director, who falls for prostitute-turned-actress Izzy (Imogen Poots), and works to help her advance her career.

With a large cast including Jennifer Aniston as therapist Jane, plus Lucy Punch, Kathryn Hahn, Jennifer Esposito, Rhys Ifans, Debi Mazar, Will Forte, Cybill Shepherd, Joanna Lumley, Tatum O’Neal, Illeana Douglas and Quentin Tarantino as himself, unfortunately ‘funny’ is the one thing which seems to have escaped this apparent comedy, as it looks absolutely dire.

She’s Funny That Way hasn’t yet got a UK release date but it’s out on the US on April 10th.

And there’s still no new entries at all in the Top 10 singles (albeit a good few in the album charts), but Meghan Trainor climbs from No.50 to No.2 with Lips Are Movin. Is that a reference to her jogging bottoms?

Here’s her track:

Cucumber, Banana and Tofu – Series 1 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

cucumber-featured

cucumberCucumber, banana and tofu are the stages of male sexual arousal, and the first in a new series from Russell T Davies

This first entry in the series, and the trilogy, concentrated on Henry (Vincent Franklin) and Lance (Cyril Nri), a couple who have been together for 9 years but for whom all is not well. Lance wants to get married while the thought of commitment frightens Henry. They go through the processes of what would happen if you cheat on your partner, as well as each watching porn separately rather than be together… although couldn’t that also apply to straight couples as well? Yes, is the answer.
