Annihilation

The Runners

A short film asking runners some intimate questions!

Colossal

I seem to have been posting a lot of serious films recently. I am looking forward to this. Sometimes you just need some light hearted entertainment and this looks pretty good and a bit silly.

Dunkirk

I think it is really interesting that there is a film being made about the Dunkirk evacuation. Christopher Nolan knows how to make a good looking film and I hope that the story matches how it looks visually. From the trailer, it looks like it is going to be a harrowing experience.

Blade Runner 2049

I’m still not sure what to think about this, but I do like Denis Villeneuve films. Looking forward to seeing this in the cinema later this year.

Mindhorn

I saw this at the Glasgow Film Festival earlier this year and thought it was brilliant. I did laugh quite a lot at it and my wife really enjoyed it too.

The Lost Arcade

The Lost Arcade is another film that I saw at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival. It tells the story of Chinatown Fair arcade in Manhattan. The documentary starts just as the arcade is shutting down. You get to explore its history but more importantly you get to meet the people that worked and played there and learn about their lives. It’s a really interesting documentary, but I am biased as I love anything to do with New York City.

Voyage Of Time

I recently caught this at the Glasgow Film Festival. We were told that we were lucky as were getting to view the 90 minute version of the film and that the released version would be cut down to 45 minutes and would appear on IMAX screens later this year. What I like about Terrence Malick’s films are that they always look stunning and this film does. It’s trying to tell the story of the creation of the universe and life on Earth. There are parts I did not enjoy, but on the whole it was a really good trip. It would like amazing on a big screen like the IMAX. My favourite parts were the bits filmed in Iceland. It was great to see them on the big screen.

Alien: Covenant

I did not rate Prometheus. I got excited about it and then it turned out to be a confused film and I disliked most of the characters. Should I get my hopes up for Alien: Covenant? Maybe I’ll just watch Alien and Aliens instead?

Invader – ART4SPACE

Invader has uploaded his short documentary about the time he sent one of his mosaics in to space. Check it out.
