‘Dunkirk’ Review: Christopher Nolan’s best film to date

Dunkirk

It has been three days since I saw Dunkirk and I cannot stop thinking about it. That alone should be enough to tell you that the movie is great and that you should see it, so if an affirmation that it is worth seeing is what you are looking for you can stop reading now. Let me say this clearly and concisely right up front: Dunkirk is Christopher Nolan’s best film to date and you should absolutely seek it out on the biggest screen you can find.

Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer: Officially My Most Anticipated Film of 2015 (With Screen Captures)

mad-max-fury-road-4

I was already looking forward to this movie but this new trailer has kicked that up a notch. It looks like George Miller might be certifiably insane. The imagery here is stunning and shocking and balls to the wall weird and I, for one, love it. Stop what you’re doing and watch this trailer now.

Jared Leto is The Joker In Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad

With (our good friend) Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Will Smith – yes, that Will Smith – as Deadshot.

As reported by io9, this casting finally ends the rumours as to who will play the collection of supervillains. Suicide Squad sees them forced to come together to carry out the government’s dirty work, so it could work really well. Some interesting casting choices there – I’ve no idea who Rick Flagg is but Tom Hardy is always good value, and Margot Robbie playing Harley Quinn is a fantastic choice. Also, my countdown timer for when Will Smith pulls out has started. However, it’s Jared Leto‘s takeover of the Joker role that will have the most focus. He certain has the intensity, but does he have the dark humour?

We’ll find out…in 2016.

Final request, though: CAN HOLLYWOOD PLEASE STOP CASTING JAI COURTNEY. IN ANYTHING. EVER. Ahem. Thanks.

Locke Trailer: Tom Hardy, A Car, A Welsh Accent

I love movies where the protagonist is stuck inside a single location – from Die Hard‘s Nakatomi skyskraper to Speed‘s bus and Phone Booth‘s…phone booth, the sense of bucking claustraphobia is not only a fantastic storytelling device but also allows the lead actor to really flail those acting skills (or, like Keanu, be…confused).

Well, now there’s a new one to add to the list (along with Ryan Reynolds’ Buried, which I still haven’t seen). Locke is movie that places (our friend) Tom Hardy in a car for ninety minutes…and that’s it. Whatever unfolds, it seems like him exiting from the car soon becomes less and less of a choice. Let’s take a took at the trailer.

The Trip to Italy Clip: Duelling Michael Caines on Batman and Bain. Try Saying That Five Tims Fast

The Trip to Italy

Remember The Trip? That film in which Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon travel together through Northern England ostensibly to do culinary reviews for a news paper but actually to just do a bunch of improvised comedy over food?

It was a funny, and surprisingly somber, movie which I rather liked. The trailer for it went crazy viral based on a scene in which they duel their Michael Caine impressions.

Now they’ve made a sequel, The Trip to Italy, and the first clip from it is, obviously, more dueling Michael Caine.
