Greetings programs! We’re back after a two-week break with two new movies, one hot off the presses from the largest media conglomerate in history and the other finally seeing wide release after a successful festival run last year. First up is Robert Zemeckis’ live-action remake of Disney’s Pinocchio, followed by the Senegalese action horror movie Saloum. One of these movies we really didn’t like, listen to find out which and then watch the other!

The marketing people for _The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies_ are drip feeding us new material on twitter. Three new posters in the last three days, two of which are for characters who weren’t in the book.
Hot on the heels of the [8 new posters](https://awesomefriday.ca/2013/11/awesome-8-new-posters-for-the-hobbit-the-desolation-of-smaug/) there’s a shiny new 3 minute trailer for _The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug_. Let’s watch!
A whole slew of new posters have been released for _The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug_. Seven are character posters mostly for new and more heavily featured characters in the second film plus an new theatrical poster!
The tagline for Fast and Furious 6 us _”All Roads Lead To This”_ and it’s actually pretty apt. I’m a fan of the series because I like watching fast cars but this is probably the first film where everything went right. In fact Furious 6 (as it’s called by it’s own title card) is likely the best film in the series.
Yeah, I’m saying that after 6 tries (or five, depending how you count) they’ve finally gotten the formula right and the movie is entertaining as hell from start to finish.
This isn’t to say the movie is objectively good by any stretch but a movie doesn’t need to necessarily be objectively _good_ to be solidly _entertaining_.
We saw the first trailer during the Super Bowl and now there’s an extended version.
I’m looking forward to this movie. Like I’ve said before the 4th and 5th entries in this series were both good, with Fast Five being the best in the series so far if you ask me. This looks like it’s going to tie up all the loose ends from the story so far and bring (almost) every character into the action. Luke Evans appears to be a bit of a stereotype “ex special forces bad guy” but as long as he has the charisma there’s nothing wrong with that in a movie like this.
And let’s face it, some of the stuff they do with the cars is pretty freaking sweet.
If I have any complaints they’d be that at 3 minutes 20 seconds this trailer doesn’t really leave me wanting a lot more. I’m worried that I’ve basically seen the whole movie now (which wouldn’t be the first time that’s happened) and also I kind of wish they’d stuck with one system for naming the movies so that this one would be called _6 Fast 6 Furious_.
