deadfall-movie-poster-1Wahey! This weekends ma-hoo-sive must see is J.J. Abrams’ STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS which looks set to be a barnstormer at the box office. The whole crew of the Enterprise is back to face all round bad fella Sherlock Holmes  Benedict Cumberbatch. Should be a corker.

Matthew McConaughey is on top form in MUD, the story of the unlikely friendship of an escaped convict and two Arkansas teenagers. Reece ‘don’t you know who I am?’ Witherspoon also stars…

Also out is DEADFALL, starring Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde. A fugitive brother and sister get separated after a bank heist goes wrong and the film follows the sister taking sanctuary with a family man travelling back home for thanksgiving… A bit like Planes, Trains & Automobiles then… But with Olivia Wilde in the John Candy part…

On dvd… Not strictly a movie but I am recommending it anyway, its Charlie Brookers second series of BLACK MIRROR. Three incredibly involving tales of modern technology nightmares (the second episode WHITE BEAR is particularly disturbing). Brilliantly dark and strangely comical in places.

That’s it for now, I’m off for a pint. See ya next week.
