Out Now – 30th August 2013

Pain and Colour

You’re Next
Some classic home invasion horror here as a family come under attack by what appear to be axe and machete wielding maniacs. Expects twists and lots and lots of blood.

The Way, Way Back
The writing duo who brought us the Oscar-winning The Descendants are back with a new film starring lots of actors who are genuinely good at comedy but never seem to have become properly famous. These people include Toni Collette, Allison Janney, and Sam Rockwell and the plot is… unimportant.

One Direction: This Is Us
Alternate title: One Direction – This Is Us

Pain & Gain
Michael bay has made a film and we have given it four stars. I don’t know how I feel about this. Stephen claims it is “a truly engrossing piece of entertainment”. He also referred to me as Captain Mathematics so I guess we’ll just have to trust his judgement.

Upstream Colour (limited release)
I’ve seen the film. I’ve written my review. I’ve interviewed the man whose brain it came from. Just please don’t expect me to explain it to you.

Hammer of the Gods (limited release)
“A young man transforms into a brutal warrior as he travels the unforgiving landscape in search of his long lost brother, Hakan the Ferrocious, whose people are relying on him to restore order to their kingdom.” Now imagine that film as British. Eeep.

Satyagraha (limited release)
A Bollywood political thriller. Everyone on the poster looks sad. (It has been a long week.)

Plein Soleil (limited re-release)
“Tom Ripley is a talented mimic, moocher, forger and all-around criminal improviser; but there’s more to Tom Ripley than even he can guess.”

Bonjour Tristesse (limited re-release)
“Cecile, decadent young girl who lives with her rich playboy father Raymond. When Anne, Raymond’s old love interest, comes to Raymond’s villa, Cecile is afraid for her way of life.”
