The Movie List

Ramadan is one of those times where you either have too much times on your hands or none at all, in my case its the later so the movies have been piling up. There a few interesting on this list like The Lorax & The Three Stooges, those are movies that are light and entertaining. But on the other side of the spectrum are Fastest & I Am Bruce Lee, and both of them are very cool documentaries, Fastest is about MotoGP bikes which I have just seen and loved, and who doesn’t love Bruce Lee. Raid The Redemption is also at the top of my watch list of Asian movies, and on the British side Wild Bill looks pretty good.

Review: Harry Brown

Harry lives in public housing block in London, a retired soldier who lives a daily dull life between the pub and his apartment. Harry Brown is movie of a man who was pushed too far, surrounded by thugs and gangsters who took things a little too far, the man snapped and his rampage cleaned up the streets, and take vengeance for his friend. Who ever thought that the butler of Batman/Bruce Wayne could kick so much ass, and every kill is for a purpose. This is a gritty unapologetic violent movie meant to show the state of the public housing and how one man was pushed to act, movies such as these are rare these days, a slow start but insane finish, a movie worth watching.

Four Lions – Trailer

Synopsis:

Four Lions tells the story of a group of British jihadists who push their abstract dreams of glory to the breaking point. As the wheels fly off, and their competing ideologies clash, what emerges is an emotionally engaging (and entirely plausible) farce. In a storm of razor-sharp verbal jousting and large-scale set pieces, Four Lions is a comic tour de force; it shows that—while terrorism is about ideology—it can also be about idiots.

This is one tricky movie, its hilarious how these guys go about their business trying to achieve their goals. Its probably one of the funniest movies about a sensitive subject, taking it from a different angle. It was shown the Cannes Film Festival the movie is slated for release on May 7th in the UK but I can understand that it might get slaughtered by the general public, I think the movie is hilarious and they do it with style. No international release date has been set yet, but I would love to see this movie.

Synposis

Whilst Jo (Emma Roberts) is chained down in a dead end supermarket job, her friends are all out on their own separate adventures: Cassandra (Tamsin Egerton) is jetting off to New York to meet her internet boyfriend; Kerrys (Shanika Warren-Markland) is on a one woman crusade fighting for female liberation and Shannon (Ophelia Lovibond) is on a one way trip to meet her maker. But a chance encounter with some diamond thieves sends their separate worlds on a collision course with not only each other, but fate itself. These 4 girls are about to have 3 days they will never forget, spanning to 2 cities. That is if they survive.

This movie comes from the British movie makers of Kidulthood and Adulthood, a mix of action, drama and a lot of lesbian kissing scenes. I really like the idea that these girls get into a huge heist and don’t know what they have gotten themselves into. Looks like their will be some insanity to unravel but lots of fun and action taking place throughout the movie. One thing I like about this movie is the raw feeling of the actors, it feels like these girls are doing something insane for the first time, and the guys feel like they are about to be killed for the mishap. Looking forward to its release on the 2nd of June 2010.
