I Am Not A Witch on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

I Am Not A Witch

I Am Not A Witch is one of those films where I wasn’t really sure what I just watched, even though it parts of it were certainly worth a watch.

Shula (Maggie Mulubwa) is an eight-year-old girl in a commnuity full of residents in an area of Zambia, who clearly can’t be very bright because they assume that certain females are witches, which leads to a whole group of Women, tied up with ribbons to ensure they can’t fly off and kill people. Yes, it’s not a very tolerant society.

UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e January 18th 2018

UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e January 18th 2018In the UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e January 18th 2018, Ed Sheeran stays at No.1 with Perfect, and on the one hand you could say it won’t change your opinion of him… or on the other, you could say it’s bloody awful.

Released this week is Supergrass’ Gaz Coombes with Deep Pockets and it’s pretty funky:

Show Dogs – Trailer 1 – Will Arnett

Show Dogs Show Dogs – another film with talking animals. Just what no-one needed!

If you’re looking for a plot, Max (Ludacris), a macho, solitary Rottweiler police dog is ordered to go undercover as a primped show dog in a prestigious Dog Show, along with his human partner, Frank (Will Arnett), to avert a disaster from happening.

Looks terrible, but if you care, then Show Dogs is released in the UK on May 25th.

Director: Raja Gosnell
Screenplay: Max Botkin, Marc Hyman
Also stars: Stanley Tucci, Natasha Lyonne, Alan Cumming, Gabriel Iglesias, Shaquille O’Neal

Traffik – Trailer 1 – Paula Patton

Traffik
Traffik centres around a couple, off for a romantic weekend in the mountains, who are accosted by a bike gang. Alone in the mountains, Brea (Paula Patton) and John (Omar Epps, above with Paula Patton) must defend themselves against a gang, who will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.

It looks like a typical ‘grimacing bad guys fixate on new guy and then it all turns into a crappy chase movie’…

Traffik is released in the US on April 27th, but as of yet, there’s no UK date. No hurry…

Director: Deon Taylor
Also stars: William Fichtner, Missi Pyle, Roselyn Sanchez, Dawn Olivieri, Luke Goss

Tully – Teaser 1 – Charlize Theron

Tully Tully centres around… not quite Tully, but Marlo (Charlize Theron), a mother of three including a newborn, who is gifted a night nanny by her brother. Hesitant to the extravagance at first, she comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising and sometimes challenging young nanny… and that’s where Tully (Mackenzie Davis) comes in.

Anything from director Jason Reitman can be hit or miss, and I wasn’t wowed by this trailer.

Tully is released in the UK on April 20th, so you have a pregnant pause to wait for it…. or something.

Screenplay: Diablo Cody
Also stars: Ron Livingston, Emily Haine, Marceline Hugot, Elaine Tan, Crystal Lonneberg

The Vanishing of Sidney Hall – Trailer 1 – Logan Lerman

The Vanishing of Sidney Hall The Vanishing of Sidney Hall, portrayed by Logan Lerman, centres around the titular author who finds accidental success and unexpected love at an early age, then disappears without a trace.

Lots of people smile as they expectantly try to find him, as if they think he’ll provide the answer to life, the universe and everything.

Do you get the feeling that I couldn’t care less whether or not he turns up?

The Vanishing of Sidney Hall hasn’t yet got a release date in either the US or UK.

Director: Shawn Christensen
Writers: Shawn Christensen, Jason Dolan
Also stars: Michelle Monaghan, Elle Fanning, Margaret Qualley, Kyle Chandler, Blake Jenner, Nathan Lane, Tim Blake Nelson

Teen Titans Go To The Movies – Trailer 1

Teen Titans Go To The Movies Teen Titans Go To The Movies spawns from a franchise of which I’ve never heard before, so I’ll leave it to the billing to explain the plot…

It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies-everyone but the Teen Titans, that is. But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream.

But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously super villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line.

Teen Titans Go To The Movies is released in the UK on August 3rd, and as you might have gathered, I have zero interest in this.

Directors: Aaron Horvath, Peter Rida Michail
Screenplay: Aaron Horvath, Michael Jelenic
Stars: Kristen Bell, Khary Payton, Will Arnett, Tara Strong, Khary Payton, Greg Cipes, Hynden Walch, Scott Menville

Beirut – Trailer 1 – Jon Hamm

Beirut Beirut brings us Jon Hamm (Baby Driver) as a US diplomat, who flees Lebanon in 1972 following the tragic murder of his wife. Ten years later, he’s called back to war-torn Beirut by CIA operatives (Rosamund Pike) to negotiate for the life of a friend he left behind…

with a script from Tony Gilroy, who brought us many of the Jason Bourne movies, and from director Brad Anderson, whose Transsiberian comes highly recommended, Beirut is released in the US on April 13th in the US, but doesn’t yet have a UK date. Hamm’s always worth a look, so I’ll definitely check this out.

Also stars: Shea Whigham, Douglas Hodge, Dean Norris, Mark Pellegrino, Kate Fleetwood, Jonny Coyne, Leïla Bekhti
