So… February was largely disappointing for new movies. Kingsman: The Secret Service was alright but Jupiter Ascending was abysmal. Sigh. Pray March will be better.
CHAPPIE Directed by Neill Blomkamp. Starring Hugh Jackman and Dev Patel.
Getting somewhat nervous about this one. Blomkamp did not do too well with Elysium and the idea of sentient robot is not exactly original, is it? Jackman is in it as well, as I generally do not like any movie he’s in. Ah well.
And January is almost over! Time to ponder the coming movies in February 2015.
STILL ALICE Directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland Starring Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart
Another movie about suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. Nothing frightens more than losing one’s memory permanently. Moore is nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for this one, so her performance is probably worth the price of admission. Get the hankies out though.
