Draft Day, 11/04/14

Draft Day - Title

Veteran filmmaker Ivan Reitman’s (Ghostbusters) predictable yet entertaining movie focuses on the ups and downs of the NFL draft day, and is anchored by Kevin Costner (3 Days To Kill), who impresses again in his third big screen appearance this year.

Review coming soon.

Oculus, 11/04/14

Oculus - Title

Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) stars alongside Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent) in Mike Flanagan’s (Absentia) surprising psychological horror flick, which puts atmosphere and scares over cheap gore to create a genuinely frightening affair.

Review coming soon.

3.5 Stars

Rio 2, 11/04/14

Rio 2 - Title

Director Carlos Saldanha (Ice Age) returns alongside voice actors Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) and Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) for the vibrantly animated yet routine sequel to the 2011 box office hit Rio that fails to add anything new to the genre.

Review coming soon.

Brick Mansions, 25/04/14

Brick Mansions - Title

Luc Besson (3 Days To Kill) writes and produces this absurd remake, which once again features the impressive physical talents (and not so impressive acting) of parkour legend David Belle (District B13), as well as Paul Walker (Fast Five) in his last onscreen role.

Review coming soon.

The Other Woman, 25/04/14

The Other Woman - Title

Nick Cassavettes (My Sister’s Keeper) directs and Cameron Diaz (Knight & Day) stars in this dull, tepid revenge comedy that also features the comedic talents of Leslie Mann (This Is Forty) and the… um, ‘visual talents’ of model Kate Upton.

Review coming soon.
