Ten 2 Ten – It’s cowboy time.
Films that have invaded a cinema near you this week include
In 1970s England, three blue-collar friends spend their days joking, drinking, fighting and chasing girls. Freddie (Christian Cooke) wants to leave their working-class world but cool, charismatic Bruce (Tom Hughes) and lovable loser Snork (Jack Doolan) are happy with life the way it is. When Freddie gets a new job as a door-to-door salesman and bumps into his old school sweetheart Julie (Felicity Jones), the gang are forced to make choices that will change their lives for ever.
I’ve heard some really positive things about Cemetery Junction and both Gervais and Merchant are heroes in my eyes, so I will be making a small trip down to Camden Odeon on Sunday to revel in the 70’s nostalgia.
It’s love at first sight for John (Channing Tatum – STEP UP) who meets college student Savannah (Amanda Seyfried – MAMMA MIA). After meeting only a handful of times the two young lovers are torn apart when John has to re-enlist and fulfil his duty. The two lovers’ are bound together by hope, but can they survive the distance?
If you want an idea of what I thought of Dear John then you really should check out my review here
The Ghost Writer
A ghostwriter stumbles onto a secret that places his life in danger as he takes down the life story of a former U.K. prime minister (Pierce Brosnan) in this Roman Polanski-helmed adaptation of the Robert Harris novel. Kim Cattrall, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Williams, Tom Wilkinson, and Jim Belushi co-star in the Summit International production.
I have always had my reservations about Ewan McGregor, but under the guidance of the great Roman Polanski, you can expect great things. Backed up by a strong performance by Pierce Brosnan, I would recommend this movie out of all the films out this week.
Have a great weekend and thanks for reading.
Let me know if you see something great or you see something so whack it makes you want to break down in the road and curse the heavens.
