Movies landing on the big screen soon!
We’re looking at some big movies coming up over the next month or so, so here is my little run down of what we will be expecting at the movies soon.
Ratatouille – It’s Out!
Ratatouille arrived in our local cinema on Friday gone and I will be posting my review of it very shortly, probably within the next couple of days so I am not going to go into much detail about it just yet!
Saw IV – 26th October
Saw IV sees the fourth, yes the FOURTH installment of the halloween time horror which we have seen for the past few years coming out at the same time. Previous Saw movies have had people walking out of the cinema, screaming, shouting and hiding behind their seats.
Saw IV promises to be even gorier than the previous movies and if you have managed to catch the trailer you will find two men, one who can’t talk and one who can’t see shackled to some sort of killer machine that threatens to decapitate them both!
No doubt there will be more blood that the last 3 and I hope they have kept the good, stomach churning story lines where you are on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next.
Elizabeth: The Golden Age – 2nd November
Back in 1998 Cate Blanchett shot to stardom in the period epic Elizabeth, nine years later and an Oscar in hand she is back playing Elizabeth. This time she is facing threats from the Spanish Armada, one of the largest naval fleets which has ever headed to the British Isles in anger, and a murder plot from her own Cousin. Nice eh!? I can see this being a great movie to be honest.
Let’s talk about this one sensibly. Ridley Scott, Denzel Washington, Cuba Gooding Jr and Russell Crowe working together on the same movie. That combination has to open up anyone’s eyes. I am a massive fan of everyone who is involved in the movie so when they all come together to produce a movie about crime and gangsters I am hooked.
The American Gangster movie is about a man called Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington) who exploits a death in a crime family to go at it himself and become one of the most powerful men in Harlem, dealing in drugs that have been brought back from Vietnam in the coffins of dead soldiers.
Russell Crowe plays Richie Roberts, the brave man who sets out to take down Lucas. With a great cast and fantastic director, fireworks will be flying this November I think.
Fred Claus – 30th November
Wahey, a Christmas comedy movie!
Vince Vaughan who plays Fred Claus is the brother of the real Santa Claus. Fred is a bit of a bad man and thief who is sent off to the Claus household to sort his life out. Things don’t go to plan and Fred ends up causing trouble and havoc to the North Pole!
It’s always good to have a Christmas comedy I think, and this looks to be it!
