Out Now – 24th September 2010

Lots of films means lots of Googling for me. Let’s see what I found…

Eat Pray Love
Over two hours of watching Julia Roberts on holiday. She’ll start off upset then be smiling all round Bali while making gooey eyes at Javier Bardem.

Peepli Live
This week’s Hindi film. Something about politics, land and a threat of suicide.

The Town
A gritty, intense, action thriller, or so say the various quotes on the poster. It looks a bit pants to me but the reviews are good… and there’s Jon Hamm.

True Legend
The synopsis includes reference to a form of martial arts called “Drunken Boxing”. Odd. In 3D!

The Wildest Dream
One man goes up everest and 75 years later another man finds his frozen corpse. Erm, spoiler alert?

Budrus (limited release)
Documentary and lazy copy and pasting time! “Follows a Palestinian leader who unites Fatah, Hamas and Israelis in an unarmed movement to save his village from destruction. Success eludes them until his 15-year-old daughter jumps into the fray.”

Confucius (limited release)
Confucius say, biopic about ancient philosopher not going to sell many tickets.

Dragon Hunters (limited release)
A seemingly forgotten animated film limps its way into UK cinemas years after coming out on DVD in the US. It is, surprisingly, about two dragon hunters.

Enter the Void (limited release)
A kid deals drugs, dies and comes back as a ghost to look over his sister. Or haunt her I guess.

Frozen (limited release)
Three people get stuck on a ski lift. One user on IMDb warns, “The film is pretty intense”. Be careful.

World’s Greatest Dad (limited release)
Or this week’s greatest film.
