Out Now – 7th September 2012

Anna Karenina
Sexy high society affair! Joe Wright directs Keira Knightley for the third time in this new adaptation of Tolstoy’s classic novel. It sounds a bit trippy being set in a theatre and with exterior scenes taking place on the stage. Go have a look and tell me if it’s any good.

That’s My Boy
Adam Sandler wasn’t content with all his success at the Razzie Awards last year and is gunning for a second Worst Actor win with his role as Andy Samberg’s dysfunctional father in That’s My Boy. Sandler plays Samberg’s estranged Father who resurfaces just before Samberg’s wedding. I imagine things do not go well.

Dredd 3D
Hey look, 3D right in the title. 3D is cool right? So a Judge Dredd film. I don’t think I have to explain who Judge Dredd is to you. I do? Bugger. Hang on… Ahem. “In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO.” Oh.

Fancy watching a violent and beautiful but ultimately boring film about prohibition? You’re in luck!

A Night in the Woods (limited release)
Found footage British horror set in the woods of Dartmoor. Sounds so much like The Blair Witch I don’t really see the point.

The Queen of Versailles (limited release)
“A documentary that follows a billionaire couple as they begin construction on a mansion inspired by Versailles. During the next two years, their empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis.” For some reason I can’t see Kevin McCloud in the cast list.

Tabu (limited release)
“Three women, neighbours in a Lisbon apartment complex, respond in different ways to the loneliness of their enigmatic existence.” All you need to know is that this is a Portuguese film, something of a speciality of ours here at Mild Concern.

Love (limited release)
An intriguing sounding film about an astronaut stranded on the International Space Station who loses contact with Earth and has to struggle to stay alive and sane as his live support systems fail. An IMDb user has dubbed the film “boring pretentious arts crap” which appeals to me greatly.

St George’s Day (limited release)
UK gangster film about two thugs who lose a shipment of the Russian Mafia’s cocaine. Check between the sofa cushions lads and it’s bound to turn up.

Shut Up and Play the Hits (limited release)
Documentary surrounding LCD Soundsystem’s final show at Madison Square Garden.
