Out Now – 3rd August 2012

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
The third film in the Wimpy Kid trilogy is a lot like The Dark Knight Rises in that it follows a young boy whose plans for summer go wrong so he has to figure out what to do with his school break. For those that haven’t seen The Dark Knight Rises this is what Bane’s motivation turned out to be. (I think that’s what he said, that mask made him hard to hear.)

Sound Of My Voice (limited release)
Stephen called this a “remarkably powerful film full of emotional and dramatic epiphanies.” Made by them lot what did Another Earth which just so happens to be the 10th best film of 2011. According to me. And I should know. I write a film blog! A FILM BLOG!

Eames: The Architect & The Painter (limited release)
Hey kids! The film you’ve been waiting for all year is finally here! A documentary about Charles and Ray Eames, America’s most influential and important industrial designers! (Kids like industrial design right?)

The Flowers of War (limited release)
That lovely Christian Bale fella is in a film as a westerner pretending to be a priest in Japan trying to lead some women in a church in 1937 to safety. Hopefully they haven’t handled the plot as badly as I just did in that sentence.

Leave It On The Floor (limited release)
This is one of a few film this year that I could have seen before release if I were slightly more efficient at responding to emails. Instead I will simply copy and paste from IMDb and pretend that it counts as good blogging. “Set in the ballroom world originally memorialized by the documentary Paris Is Burning, Leave It on the Floor is an original musical set in the scene in Los Angeles 2011.”

London: The Modern Babylon (limited release)
No synopsis on IMDb so I will just leave you with the musings of an IMDB-er. No one has replied yet so go ahead, make his day.

The Reverend (limited release)
The sole picture on IMDb is a man on fire. SOLD!

A Simple Life (limited release)
Now I’m starting to feel bad. We were invited to see this film at least three times. Bad blogger. “After suffering a stroke, an altruistic maid announces that she wants to quit her job and move into an old people’s home.”

Undefeated (limited release)
A documentary about an American football team means only one thing… Pre-judge! Run away!
