I’ll just leave that there to fester in your eyeholes.
This week is rather light – so let’s get to looking at what I think you should be aware of.
Begin Again – From the team that brought you Once comes the story of a New York City record producer who finds a muse to help re-find his love for music in this new world order music has found itself in. Full of ups, down, laughs and cries, it tries to recapture the magic that was Once – but it fails. Still, it’s watchable with catchy music and great performances from the likes of Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Catherine Keener and Hailee Steinfeld.
Deliver Us from Evil – Eric Bana plays a NYC cop who learns that the devil is real and a lot more prolific than he thought. From Scott Derrickson, future maker of Marvel’s Dr. Strange film.
Wish I Was Here – Zach Braff brings his quote unquote charm to the silver screen once again, this time with the help of an ill-advised Kickstarter campaign.
Life of Crime – A prequel to Jackie Brown, based on the Elmore Leonard novel The Switch. Yaslin “Mos-Def” Bey plays Ordell Robbie and John Hawkes plays Louis Gara. Also stars Will Forte, Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins and Isla Fisher.
Child of God – James Franco brings the Cormac McCarthy novel to the screen and I have to say, I’m intrigued. I’m looking forward to Franco’s adaptation of Zeroville.
Moebius – A South Korean creep-fest restricted and therefore essentially “banned” by its origin country... yes please.
Planet of the Vampires (Blu-ray Reissue) – Mario Bava’s sci-fi flick gets remastered for Blu. A beautiful but flawed film, definitely worth checking out.
There’s a lot coming next week, so get ready for a long list. Until then: keep spinnin’ those discs,
