Out Now – 8th February 2013

Wreck-It Graham 4

Wreck-It Ralph
Featuring characters from arcade games ranging from Sonic and Mario to Pacman this animated adventure follows one villains quest to become a hero. Oscar nomination count: 1

Warm Bodies
A romantic comedy in which one of the romantic leads actually is a zombie? A film about flesh-eating and love conquering all; the perfect Valentine’s film.

I Give It a Year
A UK comedy set after the point at which most romantic comedies end; when the unlikely couple get together. Here we see the newlyweds struggle through their first year of marriage with all the hilarity that involves. The trailer makes me laugh so I have hope.

Hitchcock
Following Hitchcock during the making of Psycho this biopic gives a more balanced view than the BBC drama The Girl but features an inferior Hitchcock. Oscar nomination count: 1 (But only for makeup so let’s not get too excited)

No (limited release)
My knowledge of Chilean politics in 1988 is non-existent at best but thanks to Google I can proudly state that the plot can be summarised by saying that “ad executive comes up with a campaign to defeat Augusto Pinochet in Chile’s 1988 referendum” without having a clue who Pinochet is. Oscar nomination count: 1

I Wish (limited release)
“12-year-old Koichi, who has been separated from his brother Ryunosuke due to his parents’ divorce, begins to believe that the new bullet train service will create a miracle when the first trains pass each other at top speed.”

A Liar’s Autobiography: The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman (limited release)
A mind melding animation covering the falsified life story of Graham Chapman. A must for any fan of Monty Python and great fun for the rest of us. I liked it, what more do you need?

The Fall of the Essex Boys
British gangster film. Sex, violence, drugs, and all the swears. ‘Citing.
