Sin City A Dame To Kill For and Lucy lead the new cinema releases & trailers – w/e August 22nd 2014

A Dame To Kill ForThis weekend there are five new films out for you to choose from: action in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Lucy & Into The Storm, comedy in What If, and horror in Deliver Us From Evil.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is the follow-up to 2005′s Sin City and is directed by both Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez and in it, the town’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants. It stars Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jessica Alba, Juno Temple, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Mickey Rourke, Jamie Chung, Lady Gaga, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Marton Csokas, Stacy Keach, Dennis Haysbert and Powers Boothe.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For has had its UK release date brought forward to August 25th and the excellent trailer shows that it retains the cool feel of the first film. Might even be worth a watch in 3D, since it was filmed that way according to realorfake3d.com.

Of course, the release date is this coming Monday, rather than a usual Friday. I’ve never seen this before except for, obviously, Blu-ray and DVD releases. We’ve recently had a couple of Saturday releases (Transformers: Age of Extinction and Bad Neighbours), so as to get a maximum 9 days of revenue. This Monday is a bank holiday, so perhaps they’re trying to capitalise on that, but even still they may as well go for the Saturday. Hey ho.

Men Women And Children – Official Trailer #1 – Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner Movie HD

men-women-and-childrenMen Women and Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet.

As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.

Men Women and Children is directed by co-written by Jason Reitman, and stars Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer, Emma Thompson, Jennifer Garner, Dean Norris, Dennis Haysbert, J.K. Simmons, plus a rare drama turn from Adam Sandler, who was great in Punch Drunk Love. If only he’d break away from the terrible comedies more often.

It hasn’t yet got a UK release date, but looks very intriguing.

Pointless – the missing £20250 jackpot episode!

pointlessPointless is a great quiz show which I’ve been occasionally hooked on since first watching it at the gym. I don’t watch it every day, and sometimes I just check out the final round if I’ve got in after it’s finished.

However, these past few weeks, as BBC1 have been repeating episodes from 2012, the jackpot has been building up, and yesterday it had reached £19,750. I tuned in today to see if it would be won today, but they started again from £1000! WTF?!

I checked iPlayer and found that they’d missed an episode, so clearly we missed the one where the jackpot was won, but by who, and how much did they go away with?

The Wright Stuff – Double f-word caller (August 19th 2014)

The Wright StuffThe Wright Stuff – once a great source of debate, it’s now desperate for talking points, and yesterday there was one called “Lending your partner to a pal”. Huh?

Still, one caller, Jason from Derbyshire, had the last word and left Matthew Wright speechless when he managed to swear twice on the show with the words, “I f**ked her in the p*ssy!”

Matthew and Kirsty didn’t know where to look :)

Pride – The DVDfever cinema review

pride-featured

pridePride is a new British film based on real events, set during the miner’s strike.

Joe (George MacKay), nicknamed Bromley for a large portion of the film, since that’s from where he hails, is a young lad going to college and looking for somewhere to fit in. He inadvertently stumbles across a small group of people, based in London, who soon develop into the not-at-all-catchy “Lesbians and Gays Support The Miners”. Once they’ve collected the first £200, they start looking around for a local group who’ll take their money, but they’re declined by all of them due to their sexual orientation. Eventually, they find the only group who’ll take their money, miners in a small valley in Wales (cue long road trip in a van which is clearly on its last legs).

I was 12 at the time of the strike, and obviously knew about the basics, but had no idea about this group’s involvement. Even still, it plays out like a standard British comedy at times, and although it’s based on real events, it’s scripted to have specific highs and lows, just as if it was all fiction, making it fairly predictable. The Welsh countryside is nice, though.
