Two Movie Trailers That Are Rad (And Don’t Feature Superheroes)

StillerSilver Linings Playbook was a cool movie. Especially the part where Bradley Cooper’s character Patrick throws Hemmingway’s A Farewell To Arms out his bedroom window because he hates the ending.

Impulsive shit like that is cool. Turns out the director David O. Russell has already made his next one American Hustle, staring Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence.

And if that trailer doesn’t excite you, I’m posting another for the new Ben Stiller movie that he directed and stars in called The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty that I also think looks pretty sick.

Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises

the-dark-knight-rises-new-featuretteJ-Rab and I hit up the Dark Knight Rises premier last night courtesy of Nokia, who used the opportunity to officially launch the Lumia 900, and wow, what a brilliant movie.

Because I realise most of you haven’t seen it yet, I’m going to try and keep this as vague as possible in terms of the actual plot.

Co-writer and director Christopher Nolan is nothing if not a master of genius plot twists and the last thing I want to do is give his art away so don’t worry, this review is spoiler-alert free.

For starters, and I think this goes without saying, don’t go into The Dark Knight Rises expecting a movie that is anything like its predecessor.

What’s not to like about a boxing movie that has Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale in the lead roles with the delectable Amy Adams supporting?

 

 

Sure, the plot is pretty predictable and follows the same loose format that every boxing movie since Rocky does (down and out boxer gets his ass handed to him, struggles with internal and external conflict, sorts his shit out, trains like a beast and starts kicking serious ass) but the bottom line here is that, in one simple sentence, Bale MAKES this movie.
