Out Now – 5th October 2012

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Hermione has left Hogwarts and joined a US High School in which a group of impossibly attractive misfits learn to be themselves. Expect plenty of dialogue like, “Right now we are alive and in this moment, I swear we are infinite.”

Taken 2
In Taken Liam Neeson wandering around shooting a lot of people in the hunt for his kidnapped daughter. In Taken 2 the father of one of the people he shot kidnaps Neeson’s wife, threatens his daughter, and presumably Liam Neeson wanders around shooting a lot of people in the hunt for a set up for Taken 3.

Ethan Hawke unleashes a supernatural entity as he watches footage of another family’s murder. The trailer nearly gave me nightmares so the full film is likely to give me a full-blown heart attack. Can’t wait.

Sparkle (limited release)
A family falls apart after three sisters form a girl group in the 1960s. Stars famous people who are not exactly known for their acting including CeeLo Green, Whitney Houston, and Jordin Sparks.

Liberal Arts (limited release)
Josh Radnor (him with the muppet face in How I Met Your Mother) writes and directs himself as a man who returns to his alma mater and falls in love with a student. How Woody Allen of him.

The Knot (limited release)
British comedy in which “a couple endures a series of mishaps right before their wedding day.” I long for the day when a wedding goes off without a hitch in a film.

English Vinglish (limited release)
Indian drama in which a downtrodden housewife starts to attend English language classes.

Some Guy Who Kills People (limited release)
Comedy horror about some guy who kills people. With a title that irreverent expect lots of irreverent humour!

Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 (limited release)
Let’s look at the title together. Either this is a documentary about James Bond or an in-depth look into the number seven. Count von Count’s final project perhaps?
