Three new releases of Friends With Kids, Prometheus and Rock of Ages over the last week, as well as catching Gosling and Williams in Blue Valentine and then finally seeing the 1995 Bruce Willis hit Twelve Monkeys. Read on for thoughts…
Friends with Kids (2012) <<< Click here for my review. It was quite delightful and funny for a romance/comedy movie. I enjoyed it. B
Twelve Monkeys (1995) – In a future world devastated by disease, Bruce Willis is sent back in time to gather information about the man-made virus that wiped out most of the human population on the planet. I quite enjoyed the concept of it and it’s a good interesting movie that makes you think too. Brad Pitt is also awesome in a role that I was not expecting from him. B
Prometheus (2012) <<< Click here for my review. The more I think about this movie the more I like it. So visually appealing too. B+
Blue Valentine (2010) - The thing I took out of this romance film is that Gosling is so amazingly diverse. Williams is not too shabby either and together they form a touching story of love and heartache. The way it switches between past and present is great to help us see how things have changed over time. Definitely worthy of it’s Oscar nomination although it didn’t get me emotional. B
Rock of Ages (2012) – With a star studded cast including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bryan Cranston and Russell Brand, this movie is basically a rock version of Glee. It’s a musical and sadly it wasn’t my type of movie. With a thin plot and standard acting, it did it’s best to make the extra long runtime bearable, however the catchy 80′s songs can only do so much. Was waiting for this one to end. If you like Glee then this will be a good film I’m thinking. C
This week is a big week of new releases in Australia with The Cabin in the Woods, Rock of Ages, Take This Waltz, That’s My Boy, Margaret and Le Chef. Will be struggling to see them all (well, i’ll be skipping That’s My Boy for sure).
