Every Tom Hanks Movie in 7 Minutes – James Corden is about as funny as a bag of rancid cat sick

Every Tom Hanks Movie in 7 MinutesEvery Tom Hanks Movie in 7 Minutes sounds like an interesting idea, but unfortunately, it also included the godawful James Corden as part of his first new The Late Late Show with James Corden, having taken over from Craig Ferguson.

Corden was initially tolerable back when he began, but somehow the overhyped Gavin and Stacey blew out of all proportion when the first series was moderately funny, and subsequent ones got worse and worse. Yet, the more that was made, the more it was revered. God knows why.

Cinderella and The Signal lead the new cinema releases & trailers – w/e March 27th 2015

cinderella

This weekend there are seven new films out for you to choose from: fantasy in Cinderella, sci-fi in The Signal, a thriller in Reclaim, animated nonsense in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, more sci-fi in Seventh Son, alleged comedy in Get Hard, and drama in The Face Of An Angel.

Cinderella is the tale that’s been told many a time, and now Disney have brought out a live action version, starring Lily James as the titular heroine.

The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But, when Ella’s father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family…

Cinderella is directed by Kenneth Branagh and also stars Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, Hayley Atwell, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Sophie McShera and Derek Jacobi… but it’s not my bag.

Hit or Miss? Verdict:

Movie Charts – UK & US – w/e March 22nd 2015

March 22nd 2015This week’s Movie Chart for the UK w/e March 22nd 2015 is as follows:

Do You Believe? – Official Trailer 1 – Drama Movie HD

do-you-believe

Do You Believe? is set around a dozen different souls, all moving in different directions, all longing for something more… (it says here).

As their lives unexpectedly intersect, they each are about to discover there is power in the Cross of Christ … even if they don’t yet believe it. When a local pastor is shaken to the core by the visible faith of an old street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate. This stirring new film from the creators of God’s Not Dead arrives in theaters Spring of 2015. More than a movie, it’s a question we all must answer in our lifetimes: Do you believe?

Based on the trailer, this film looks like an embarrassing pile of puke-inducing religious propaganda.

Those caught up in this utter terribleness – and who ought to know better – are Mira Sorvino, Sean Astin, Alexa PenaVega, Delroy Lindo, Ted McGinley, Andrea Logan White, plus Cybill Shepherd and Lee Majors, both looking way past their best.

Do You Believe? is out in the US now, but doesn’t yet have a UK release date. If it does, give it a wide berth!!

Entourage – Official Trailer #2 – Jeremy Piven, Mark Wahlberg Movie HD

entourageEntourage is the film version of the sitcom of the same name where suddenly-risen film star Vince Chase (Adrian Grenier), a ‘jeune premier’ of humble origins, learns the ropes of the business and the the high-profile world of the wealthy happy few in and around Hollywood, but not alone: he brings from his native New York his atypical ‘entourage’ (hence the title), not glitterati or professionals but a close circle of friends since childhood, and his professional agent finds they often make his job harder as the Queens boys not only sponge on the star but also have his ear, so Vince is much harder to counsel.

Vince chooses his friend from home Eric as his manager, and LA professional Ari Gold as his agent. Over the course of the Series, they progress from kids from Queens, to actors, to producers and chase the funding and support to try to make the perfect movie for Vincent.

And in this film, Vince Chase and his cronies finally take on Hollywood.

I never saw the sitcom, but the trailer looks amusing enough – with a bit more to this second one, too.

Entourage also stars Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, Jeremy Piven, Alice Eve, Haley Joel Osment, Ronda Rousey, Billy Bob Thornton, Jeremy Piven, Gary Busey, Debi Mazar, plus Mark Wahlberg as himself, and the film is released in the UK on June 19th 2015.

Maggie – Official Trailer #1 – Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin Movie HD

maggieMaggie is the name of both the film and a teenage girl (Abigail Breslin) in the Midwest who becomes infected by an outbreak of a disease that slowly turns the infected into cannibalistic zombies. During her transformation, her loving father, Wade (Arnold Schwarzenegger), stays by her side.

In what looks like part-drama, part-zombie movie, I do like the look of this, and while Arnie’s back this summer in Terminator Genisys, he proved last year that he can also do a decent bit of action/drama in the engaging Sabotage. And did anyone get the “You enjoy your cups”, line, from that film? I still don’t understand it.

Maggie also stars Joely Richardson, Laura Cayouette and Raeden Greer, and doesn’t yet have a UK release date, or even a US one, but it’s out in Sweden on May 22nd if that’s any guide…

Terminator Genisys – Living One-Sheet – Paramount Pictures UK

terminator-genisysTerminator Genisys is due out this summer and today, a “Living One-sheet” has been released. What’s that? It’s like a poster, sort-of…

Arnold Schwarzenegger (right, sort-of) is back!… in his original role, which was a T-800 Terminator. IMDB just lists him as “The Terminator”, while fitness-trainer-to-the-stars Aaron V. Williamson is listed as “T-800″. The reason for that, in a hastily-deleted tweet from the latter, is that Williamson is playing a younger T-800.

The Gunman – The DVDfever Cinema Review

the-gunman-d

the-gunman

The Gunman stars Sean Penn in the lead role as action man Jim Terrier. He’s one of a number of men, involved in an operation far away, where they all did very bad things that they were bound to regret later in life, partly because it plays on their minds, but mostly because they end up getting bumped off one by one.

A bit of backstory however, as way down deep in the middle of the Congo, a hippo took an apricot, a guava and a mango. He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty tango. The rhino said, “I know, we’ll call it Um Bongo!”.

Now, if you’re unfamiliar with that drink from the ’80s, Um Bongo is a beverage and they drink it in the Congo. It’s blended in the following way: The python picked the passion fruit, the marmoset the mandarin, the parrot painted packets, that the whole caboodle landed in. So when it comes to sun and fun and goodness in the jungle, They all prefer the sunny funny one they call Um Bongo!

Network Special Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

network-a

network-180

Network is one of those classic films I haven’t seen until now, this one being centered around Howard Beale (Peter Finch), a fantastically successful newscaster whose luck started to change in 1969 when his ratings declined and he suffers the loss of his wife, leading to alcoholism and then losing his job.

With two weeks notice left to go before they give him his P45 (or whatever they used to give in the US, in 1976), he announces, live on air, that he’s going to blow his brains out on national TV a week from now….
