Autumn is coming, so with it the north winds will start to blow and the rain will pour so what better excuse to spend more time at the cinema! Some of the films I have already posted trailer reviews for so I’ll link to these posts rather than duplicating content.
The 9th Life of Louis Drax – 2nd September
Captain Fantastic – 9th September
This film looks offbeat, eccentric and exceptionally beautiful and Viggo Mortensen is back!!! I love independent films a lot more than blockbusters because more often than not there is so much heart and soul that goes into these little films that you just don’t get in big budget cinema, and Captain Fantastic looks like a beautiful study on family, human nature and how we fit into society. Plus Mortensen is such a brilliant actor its been a while since I’ve seen him in a film (Last film I saw him in was 2 years ago which was Two Faces of January, a brilliant film go check it out) so it’s another reason not to miss this one.
The Magnificent Seven – 23rd September
Who doesn’t love a western? This remake of a remake (yeah I know Hollywood is so original!) follows a mismatched band of men as they come together to help a town under siege. So this is definitely a familiar story that has been done time and time again in the genre but the players involved make it a must see. First we have Denzel Washington as Sam Chisolm the leader of the seven who is a bounty hunter, Chris Pratt as Josh Farraday a gambler who has a penchant for explosives, Ethan Hawke as Goodnight Robicheaux a deft marksman, Vincent D’Onofrio as Jack Horne an expert tracker, Byung-hun Lee as Billy Rocks a skilled assassin, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as Vasquez an outlaw and Martin Sensmeier as Red Harvest a Native American warrior. Up against them is Peter Sarsgaard’s corrupt Bartholomew Bogue an industrialist who clearly has bad intentions for the local townsfolk. See what I mean SUCH A GOOD CAST!
