Unbroken / Ant-Man

Two more recent films; both of which, I was quite disappointed to have missed out on viewing at the cinema.

Olympus Has Fallen / A Walk in the Woods

One film I’d never heard of; another I was curious about, for inclusion of the word Walk within the title…

Chances were high that I was going to like both of these films.

Run All Night / The Royal Tenenbaums #LoveFilm

As I first watched the trailer for Run All Night in the cinema (a little over a year ago), I saw it as another attempt to ‘revive Bryan Mills’; Liam Neeson’s iconic leading role from the Taken franchise. I’d seen other films (including Unknown) that seemed to attempt the same feat, but with a relatively underwhelming climax.

When Amazon recommended another video about a long-distance walk, it instantly became a High Priority on my Love Film Rental List.

Mud / Moonrise Kingdom

Mud is one of those films that Amazon randomly recommended to me, along with a list of others, inside an e-mail. Perhaps it was because I’d been renting other titles (Contact) that happened star Matthew McCounaghey. Either way, I was intrigued to see more about this man apparently living in the wild, surviving by his own means.

Contact / Requiem For A Dream

Contact first came to my attention whilst reading views of the masterpiece that is Interstellar – and this was several months after first viewing it on the big screen. Another film involving space and Matthew McConaughey that in spite of its age (made in 1997), is still regarded as one of the finest examples of science fiction.
