With winter basically here, I’m about ready to settle down, snuggle up with a rug and a mug of hot chocolate and hibernate. And when I’m not doing that, I’m happy to drive to the cinema to be entertained. Here’s my pick of what to look out for this month.
The Guest, starring Dan Stevens
The teaser: If you’re really bothered about the plot it revolves around David (Dan Stevens) who turns up on the doorstep of the Peterson family claiming to be a good friend of their son’s who died in action. Then people in the town start dying too. Is David to blame?
Why I want to see it: Is it bad that I’m mostly picking this because it’s got Dan Stevens in it from Downton Abbey and he looks ridiculously hot? (See featured image…) His American accent isn’t too bad either.
Why you should see it: See the point above.
Wish I Was Here, starring Zach Braff and Kate Hudson
The teaser: A struggling actor, father and husband tries to find his identity and purpose in his life when he home schools his kids.
Why I want to see it: Because I loved Zach Braff’s Garden State (what moody emotional teen doesn’t?).
Why you should see it: So you can claim to have watched at least one indie-ish film this year.
The Riot Club, starring every young hot actor out there, i.e. Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth and Max Irons
The teaser: Two first year Oxford students join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed in an evening.
Why I want to see it: Because I didn’t get enough of Max Irons in The White Queen, and Booth’s cheekbones are hypnotic.
Why you should see it: Because it looks like great fun, and will hopefully be making a few politicians and city boys a little uncomfortable.
A Walk Among the Tombstones, a.k.a another Liam Neeson vengeance-filled uber violent pile of drivel
