What's going to take your fancy?
Kick-Ass (dir. Matthew Vaughn, 2010) - Arguable one of the most original, funny action packed super hero movies we've ever seen, this tale of a young boy wanting to make the wrongs in the world right will have you laughing from beginning to end. Starring Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson and the C Word swearing 13 year old Chloe Moretz, the controversial entertainment and originality of narrative is more than likely going to top the charts.
The Last Song (dir. Julie Anne Robinson, 2010) - Another soppy love story starring a singer with her own songs creating the soundtrack. Miley Cyrus takes on a more serious role and tries to rekindle her love for the father who she's become resentful of after her parent's divorce. She also falls in love... Perfect for the lovers of tear-jerkers.
Exit Through the Gift Shop (dir. Bansky, 2010) - A humorous and insightful look at the ever illusive Bansky and other famous graffiti artists who's work can be seen all over the world. This feature documentary takes you on an almost "behind the scenes" type of filming about how these rule breaking painters create the work that's admired by 1000s of people.
Burning Bright (dir. Carlos Brooks, 2010) - Imagine Snakes on a Plane but you're in a house and it's tigers rather than snakes. You've basically got the concept for this film. After a tornado, Kelly finds herself and her autistic brother (cue the weak, vulnerable character) hiding away from a tiger who's tormenting them from every corner of the rooms. Not Oscar winning...
After.Life (dir. Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo, 2010) - Christina Ricci, Justin Long and Liam Neeson, now that's a pretty good cast to watch act together. Added to the topic of a girl stuck in limbo on whether she's dead or alive, with Neeson playing the psychotic doctor type and Long in his typical boyfriend role adds up to a pretty intense thriller. Definitely worth a watch on a Saturday evening with the lights off and popcorn flying everywhere.
So, that's your lot this week. Keep a look out next Sunday for the new films you need to have in your collection.
