The Great Trailer Debate – Week 6

What a week! With the insane amount of Awards and nominations over the last two days it’s taken me a little longer than usual to post this. But this is definitely a nice break for me and one that doesn’t include having to write out Michel Hazanavicius’ name over and over and over…… The sad thing is that I can write his name without thinking now. Anyway, back to the trailers. This week Nadine and I (check out her blog here) bring you The Five-Year Engagement, The Lorax, The Darkest Hour, The Cabin In The Woods, Lockout, This Means War, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close (TRAILER OF THE WEEK), The Three Stooges, The Iron Lady, The Lucky One, What To Expect When You’re Expecting and Battleship. Wowzer. Next week brings us something that makes me want to (and I probably will) cry – The Dark Knight Rises. Continue reading

Review: 50/50 (2011)

DIRECTOR: Jonathan Levine.

CAST: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Angelica Huston, Philip Baker Hall, Matt Frewer, Serge Houde, Andrew Airlie.

SYNOPSIS: Based on a true story, when 27 year-old Adam (Gordon-Levitt), a clean living radio employee, is diagnosed with a rare form of spinal cancer, his whole world starts to slowly crumble around him. Best friend Kyle (Rogen) wants to preserve his quality of life by keeping him partying, whilst his mother, Diane (Huston), wants to move in with him and girlfriend Rachael (Howard) to take control.

Although it’s a film about cancer, you shouldn’t walk into 50/50 expecting over dramatics. You also shouldn’t expect a laugh a minute, gross-out comedy simply due to Seth Rogen’s presence. What you should expect is a mixture of the two, sensitively handled by director Levine, ensuring Will Reiser’s script is handled with care to deliver a film that carries great moral value and a hell of a lot of substance. And most of this is solely down to Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Continue reading

***CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS***

Hi. My name’s Emma and I don’t hate Twilight. But I’m no Twihard. Yes, I’ve read all the books and I guess that makes me significantly more interested in the characters, but I’m not someone who will push Robert Pattinson into the path of an oncoming taxi just because I like the way he sparkles. I just honestly don’t see the need for all the intense hate for the series. Continue reading
