Fast & The Furiouses
Came in the post today. Who wouldn't want the Fast & the Furiouses 1-5, 10 disc Blu-ray edition, in a wheel-shaped box? Exactly.
The Edinburgh International Film Festival runs from 19-30th June. Here's a taster as to what's on offer:
French painter flick, RENOIR, is out in the UK on the 28th June.
Planes - stills
The CARS franchise gets a spin-off with PLANES. Am hoping for TOY STORY levels of inventiveness and wit.
Out in the USA on the 9th August, and the UK on the 16th.
Thérèse Desqueyroux review
Audrey Tautou's THÉRÈSE DESQUEYROUX is out in the UK on the 7th June, and the USA on the 23rd August.
My take on it:
The Iceman review
“If you can follow orders, you have everything to gain.”
From 1964-86 Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon) killed numbers into triple figures.
Hitman drama THE ICEMAN is out in the UK on the 7th June, and out now in the USA. My review:
Despicable Me 2 - stills
Will DESPICABLE ME 2 improve on the original? I hope so. As long as a large percentage of the runtime is made up of Gru's minions, we might be in delightful animation territory.
Out in the UK on the 28th June, and the USA 3rd July.
The Great Gatsby - the musical - review
“Rich girls don’t marry poor boys.”
Here is my review of a stage interpretation of THE GREAT GATSBY:
It's a musical version on at The Riverside Studios.
Don Jon - stills
Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes his feature directorial debut with DON JON.
Out in the USA on the 18th October, and the UK 15th November.
A little montage of some photos I've taken.

Brains and soul are key; but adrenaline junkies do not fret, there is also much love for an experience that delivers a sucker-punch to the guts via stunningly delivered thrills.
The evaluation of a film
Verb, "to filmaluate”:
To evaluate a film
I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
