Out Now – 17th May 2013

The Fast and The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby
Hard to believe that this is only Baz Luhrmann’s fifth feature film but it is, I checked. When Luhrmann is good he is incredible (Romeo + Juliet) and when he is bad he is painfully so (Australia) so where will this adaptation of a classic novel I bought but have yet to read land? Rotten Tomatoes currently reports 51% positive reviews so who the hell knows!

Fast & Furious 6
Did anyone know that this franchise was still going? It’s like coming home from holiday to find you’ve left the TV on while you were away. It’s been playing to itself for ages without anyone noticing. Ah well… where else are you going to get Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, and Vin Diesel in the same film? In Fast and the Furious 7 currently in pre-production!

Beware of Mr. Baker (limited release)
“Ginger Baker looks back on his musical career with Cream and Blind Faith; his introduction to Fela Kuti; his self-destructive patterns and losses of fortune; and his current life inside a fortified South African compound.” Nope, no idea. I’m lost.

Rangeelay (limited release)
I tried watching the trailer for this Bollywood film but it was all in Punjabi so I am none the wiser as to what the plot is. I will share the following still with you instead because, well.. just have a look:
Rangeelay

The Liability (limited release)
“When 19-year-old Adam agrees to do a day’s driving for his mum’s gangster boyfriend Peter, it takes him on a 24-hour journey into a nightmarish world of murder, sex trafficking and revenge, in the company of aging hit man Roy.” When I was 3 or 4 my girlfriend’s dad was a milkman and I got to go for a ride in his milk float. This film totally gets me.
