Out Now – 14th July 2011

Don’t worry, we’re not going to repeat that joke we made when Scott Pilgrim came out and pretend we aren’t wetting ourselves at the thought of seeing the final Harry Potter films. However, there are other films out today which deserve our attention so we will remain reserved for at least the next hour.

Bobby Fischer Against the World
Let’s face it, any film going up against the boy wizard is going to have to be targeting a completely different audience. A documentary detailing the “tragic and bizarre life” of a chess champion.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2
Your childhood ends here.

Cell 211 (limited release)
Yet another prison drama. This time looking at a riot from both sides of the revolt.

Hobo with a Shotgun (limited release)
A homeless gentleman takes on crime with the help of his shotgun. Expect a tight film filled with laughs and gore. Lovely.

Treacle Jr. (limited release)
UK film about an unlikely friendship. The IMDb synopsis is unreadable but I saw a clip earlier in the year and it looked OK. Pulitzer please.

Bal (Honey) (limited release)
A young boy’s father fails to return from harvesting honey… and the plot goes from there. This ain’t Harry Potter.

Just Do It (limited release)
Documentary on environmental direct action. Bloody hippies.
