When you’re given lemons, make lemonade! It’s a less than vintage week at the cinema this week, sadly, but it is not the workhorses’ way to complain, so we’ll make do with what we’re given! There’s still the last weekend of the Fringe Festival and Culture Night to explore, if you’re feeling bored.
The best of this week’s new movies is possibly Kelly and Victor, the story of a couple who shack up and go at it like rabbits. It’s from writer and director Kieran Evans, who is a new kid on the English film scene and one to watch. The reviews are largely three and four stars, but you always worry about English reviews of English movies.
The one movie everyone seems sure is rubbish, is Diana, with a proliferation of one star reviews. Naomi Watts stars as the unhappy princess, who is trying to find love and avoid the glare of the camera flash. I just got a little sick in my mouth.
It’s like they saw Men in Black and said, yep, that’ll do. A movie I was looking forward to was RIPD, and mostly because it stars Jeff Bridges. More one star reviews sadly, but the trailer looks nice.
Ok, there are a few movies out this week worth a mention, and one of the is Black Ice, the story of “youthful misadventure set against the backdrop of a lawless border terrain during the last gasps of the Irish boom”.
The Call stars Halle Berry, so another star vehicle that went slightly off target. The reviews are average to poor, so nothing to excite you here either.
