Every year since I was old enough to sit still in the cinema I have been treated to a trip out to the silver screen for my Birthday. As the years have gone on I have obviously been to the cinema more than once a year, sometimes more than once a week. But some how the annual trip never looses its novelty! In fact it makes it more fun because now I have to make sure that the Birthday film is a particularly good one!
Maybe you can help me decide? Seeing as there are lots of films coming out in March I have a pretty good selection to chose from! The big TWO FOUR is on 9th March, but the cinema trip will be a few days after, so what’s on…?
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.
Not a fan of blood and guts, even in a comedy scenario – in fact especially in a comedy. But the trailer does look pretty good. Lots of action, some magical fantasy elements, and humour. Heard some quite good reviews but is it worth the Birthday trip?!
A bit of a change from the norm for me as I don’t like to be scared – don’t see the fun in it, but the trailer for this film has really intrigued me. What are Uncle Charlie’s ulterior motives? Looks murderous! Plus I like Nicole Kidman so that’s a bonus.
Richard Gere’s best role in years apparently so I would like to see this at some point. I like a thriller but perhaps one about a hedge fund wont be that thrilling? Susan Sarandon is pulling me in on this one I think!
Mark Wahlberg seems very excited about this film, so much so he has pretty much forgotten about The Fighter in interviews. Since Les Mis, Russell Crowe has almost won me over too so maybe this film would tip him over to favourable. The double-crossing and twists in the trailer have got me interested I have to say!
Oz: The Great and Powerful.
I am definitely going to see this at some point, very excited about it!! Love James Franco and can’t wait to see him in this role. I am also intrigued as to where the story is going to take us, in a land that is already quite familiar to us. I am a little apprehensive though because it has an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feel to it (just from pictures and the trailer) which I was very disappointed with. Desperately want to enjoy this, if it doesn’t live up to expectation it would put a major downer on the Birthday cinema trip!
Another potentially scary film but could be a goodun? Channing Tatum – not usually a fan but warming to him recently and this looks like an unusually serious role for him. Always happy to see Jude Law on screen too, so could be a great combo? The trailer has me wondering whether the drugs actually do have crazy side effects or if this woman is using it as an excuse for her potentially murderous actions?
These are all good potentials, and for a change I wont have to think what Tom is willing to see with me because it’s a ladies choice on her birthday!
Any more suggestions, films I have missed, or thoughts on these choices?
