Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
It looks like we have a rare case of Ben Stiller appearing in a good film on our hands. Stiller both directs and stars in this fantastical story of a day dreamer embarking on a real life adventure. From what I’ve seen (sadly limited to footage in the trailer) the film has a touch of the Michel Gondry about it. This film about love and adventure looks to be the perfect family film for a Christmas trip to the cinema.
“A band of samurai set out to avenge the death and dishonor of their master at the hands of a ruthless shogun.” Keanu Reeves stars… I think I’ll stick with Walter Mitty thanks.
All Is Lost
Robert Redford, and absolutely nobody else, stars in this story of survival as one man must repair a sinking boat and try to sail his way back to land with failing equipment and no tigers for company. The film for someone who spent Christmas Day alone, or wished they had.
How to Make Money Selling Drugs
Alarmingly enough this documentary is pretty self-explanatory as it explores how you can rise from street dealer to drug lord in ten simple steps. Perhaps a good way to learn how to afford all the presents everyone wants next year?
Moon Man (out tomorrow)
Adorable looking German animation in which the Man in the moon catches a lift to Earth on a passing comet. While he explores the fascinating creatures found on our planet children across the world are unable to sleep without him in the night sky. D’awww.
