Out Now – 22nd October 2010

Some quite good films out today, there’s two I definitely want to see but I’m too busy seeing other films! Maybe next week.

Africa United
Some Rwandan kids walk 3000 miles to the world cup in South Africa. I really hope they like football… and have tickets.

Alpha and Omega
Two wolves who totally don’t get on somehow end up far away from their pack and have to work together to get home. At some point they fall in love. I really hope there’s a sassy black wolf.

Carlos
The story of the famous terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez. Supposed to be rather good, though I’d see the just under 3 hour long version rather than the 5 1/2 hour epic they showed at the festival last weekend.

Easy A
92 minutes of Emma Stone being funny. Sure it won’t be amazing but it’ll be way above average and attractive to boot. Exciting stuff.

Legends Of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’Hoole
Because Zack Snyder directing a dark animated film for kids about owls is a good idea.

Paranormal Activity 2
It’s almost Halloween so time to get scared, but not actually Halloween beacause then Saw 3D might reduce opening weekend ticket sales.

Ramona and Beezus
An apparently tame adaptation of some much loved books. Still the tween you’re trying to groom will love it!

Red
Helen Mirren has a gun, and old people do action! This joke so won’t get tired after 2 hours.

The Arbor (limited release)
This got lots of buzz at the festival, a documentary with acting in it about playwright Andrea Dunbar.

Mary & Max (limited release)
A gorgeous looking stop motion animation featuring the voices of brilliant actors about two pen pals. There may be three films I want to see this week.
