Out Now – 18th October 2013

Prince Luigi

Imagine a snail infused with the power of super speed. JUST IMAGINE! If you are struggling to imagine such a thing Dreamworks have made a film that might help.

Escape Plan
Schwarzenegger and Stallone co-star in a film about two men trying to escape the world’s most secure prison. My favourite things about the poster is that they are both wearing Velcro shoes. Almost cute.

Captain Phillips
Tom Hanks stars as the captain on a cargo ship taken hostage by pirates. Expect lots of Maersk product placement.

Enough Said
This synopsis has too many pronouns in it: “A divorced woman who decides to pursue the man she’s interested in learns he’s her new friend’s ex-husband.” The he in question is James Gandolfini in one of his final performances.

When you Google the title of this anthology horror it translates it to “1 ((volt / henry) / siemens) / 2” which equals “0.5 m2 kg s-4 A-1” which is certainly something.

Prince Avalanche
Twee indie cinema at its best as Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch play a pair of road workers with nothing but each other for amusement. I thought it was “a stripped back, gentle comedy with two strong and genuine performances at its centre.”

Walesa: Man of Hope
Walesa? Who is that? Oh, man of hope. OK then…

The Epic of Everest
The BFI, God bless ’em, have gone and restored this 1924 documentary about a legendary expedition up Everest. In colour!!

Like Father, Like Son
Despite numerous opportunities I have sadly failed to see this Japanese film about a man who discovers his son was switch at birth and is forced to decide which boy to keep.

The Lebanese Rocket Society
Documentary about a 1960s group who developed rockets in Lebanon. You’ll never guess what this group was called.

The Broken Circle Breakdown
A Belgian drama about an inter-faith couple whose love is put to the test when their daughter falls ill.

Love, Marilyn
Documentary comprised of modern-day famous folks reading the memoirs of people who knew Marilyn Monroe. I only hope one day actors of the future do the same for me using my friend’s diaries.

Last Passenger
“A small group of everyday passengers on a speeding London commuter train battle their warped driver who has a dark plan for everyone on-board.” Something a London commuter might regret watching.

Either Way
The original Icelandic film that Prince Avalanche is based on. What a weird double bill you could have.
