This weeks films…

19 May

Three films watched and to talk about this week;

Firstly Black Swan, awesome performance by Natalie Portman and really well directed by Darren Aronofsky, Natalie Portman plays a fragile ballet dancer pushed to her maximum and more poignantly to her breaking point in her life between her tutor, rival dancers and a mother who is a bit spooky dooky.  Well worth a watch even if I was pushed in to it by my female chimp!

The Next Three Days was pretty entertaining, Russell Crowe plays, well, Russell Crowe, and the build up to the end is okay.  Basically husbands wife convicted of murder while he has to stay at home, make ends meet and look after his son.  So if he did not have enough problems, he decides to break his wife out of jail after she fails in an attempt to take her own life.  The main question throughout the film for me was “Did she do it?” but I couldn’t possibly tell you the answer, just feel good that you do find out which for me was honestly a big relief at the end of the film making it just worthwhile watching it.  Watch it, unless you can only watch one of Black Swan or The Next Three Days!  (Don’t tell my wife I said that though).

Finally, a little old school now, but re-watched Toy Story 3 with the baby chimps.  Basically, it looks like it is the end of the line for Woody, Buzz and Co as Andy looks to ship out to college.  Basically, the Toy Story films just got better and better with each film and this one even made me almost cry…..ALMOST.  Great film for all occasions, will make you laugh, will make you cry (ah hum) and will make you feel like you didn’t just waste an hour and a half of your life in any way at all.  Enjoy!

All are available on iTunes, Love Film, Netflix, Blockbuster, Blu-Ray, DVD and anywhere good in your relevant country!

Best watched on AppleTV or Blu Ray.
