To save history, they must save peoples culture. George Clooney leads a team of golden oldies, including Bill Murray and John Goodman, as they venture into Nazi Germany to rescue valuable artistic masterpieces before the Reich falls.
The good news is – Doug is alive (the teaser suggested it could have been his funeral), the bad news is – he has been taken by John Goodman as an insurance policy until he gets Mr Chow.
Alan is on fire. Wolfmother music is utilised again. The Wolfpack is back!
The first trailer for The Hangover Part 3 has rocked into our lives and in 2 minutes provided a couple of laughs!
Alan, Doug, Stew and Phil are back for yet another adventure and this final part of the the series sees the boys return to Las Vegas and get themselves, yet again, into some mischief that will provide us with lots of laughs.
I have to admit this trailer did tickle my funny bone and even provided a few laugh out loud moments as well as giving a glimpse of old and new characters alike. While the storyline is more than familiar it doesn’t mean it can’t be fun and this looks like it’s going to be just that!
The beloved figures of Pixar’s Monsters inc are back. This prequel takes a look at Mike and Sulley as they became firm friends at University where they are training to scare.
Billy Crystal and John Goodman are back, voicing the loveable duo! This looks like a whole lot of fun, the animation as perfect as we have come to expect from Pixar!
I’m so pleased with the Argo win at last night’s SAG Awards – especially after the Oscar snub for Ben. Don’t worry Ben, everyone in the industry loves you!
Argo is finally being released in the UK on November 7th and we saw it earlier this week and came out totally blown away.
A big fan of Affleck’s previous work, (The Town is in my top 5) I was super excited to see Argo and it delivered more than I could have hoped.
The story is a true one, about a CIA and Canadian mission in 1980 to smuggle 6 American embassy workers our of an Iran caught in the middle of revolution, during and international crisis between the US and Iran.
Argo has it all, firstly the feel of 1980 is captured authentically, even with the titles of the movie relfecting the decade it’s set in. The script is brilliant, well paced, funny and self deprecating without it becoming absurd and the tension is build with masterful skill.
Affleck’s skill as a director has’t gone unnoticed but Argo just furthers his already his impressive resume. He is great in front of the camera too. This movie is however very much a collective with great performances from John Goodman, Bryan Cranston and well, everyone on screen. It was also nice to see Clea Duvall seemingly ressurected from nowhere into a great role.
The beauty of Argo is how it achieves a film that is so incredibly tense and yet manages to retain a real sense of humour without loosing any of the impact.
Argo has swooped straight into my top 5 movies of the year, and is in all honesty likely to be unbeaten. Thoroughly enjoyable, unbearably tense and a true triumph of cinema, if i could have only seen 1 movie this year knowing what I know now, I would choose Argo.
5 out of 5
