Out Now – 9th September 2011

I’d happily say that there is something for everyone today; romantic comedy, monster movie, period drama, documentary, arty foreign film, action film and gritty Brit re-release. All we’re missing is a musical and a gross out comedy. Imagine a film which covers both…

Colombiana
Sexy lady assassin! By day she kills people for money, by night she still kills people, only this time in the hunt for the people who killed her parents. Obviously without parents she hasn’t learnt that two wrongs don’t make a right.

Friends with Benefits
Two very attractive people, Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, decide to have casual sex with no strings attached while hoping to not draw comparisons to No String Attached. I suggest a triple bill of Friends with Benefits, No Strings Attached and Black Swan, possibly topped off with a That 70’s Show marathon.

Jane Eyre
Bonnets abound! It’s time for Brontë with a much-anticipated adaptation starring the lovely Mia Wasikowska and half the cast of Submarine. Nothing to turn your nose up at here.

TrollHunter
Norwegian mockumentary following people hunting trolls. It’s like Cloverfield in a rural setting and who doesn’t want that? The rave reviews absolutely scream for us all to go and see this. Come on, I’ll get the drinks while you buy the tickets.

Kes (limited release)
Ken Loach’s classic working class drama gets a big screen re-release. As someone forced to watch this film many times while at school, this film will always bring back terrible fond memories. Imagine if Charlie didn’t go to a chocolate factory and instead just had a kestrel.

Post Mortem (limited release)
“In Chile, 1973, during the last days of Salvador Allende’s presidency, an employee at a Morgue’s recording office falls for a burlesque dancer who mysteriously disappears.” Considering the title, this can’t end well.

Way of the Morris (limited release)
I really hope this documentary about morris dancing makes it to the TV as it looks rather good but I won’t be shelling out my hard-earned monies for anything that lasts just 64 minutes.
