Upcoming films I want to treat my eyeballs to


Happy Friday.

I had an outfit post planned for today but I'm hormonal and absolutely hate all the photos I've taken this week (please tell me it's not just me) so I've decided to talk about some new films and TV shows I'd like to see.

I rarely switch off totally - I'm usually doing a few things at a time - but when I'm at the cinema or watching a DVD it immerses me completely and that's a welcome break from life stuff. As such, I'm never happier than when watching a film. (I still can't bring myself to say 'movie' without feeling like a pretentious twat!)

I want to see Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit as the trailer alludes to a bit of skullduggery going on, and I'm a fan of twists.  Plus Chris Pine. His face, I like that shit. This is out in the UK on Jan 24th.

I want to see I, Frankenstein, as I'm a big geek and love fantasy and sci fi. This stars Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Jai Courtney - who has been slowly doing well for himself in US cinema after starring in Spartacus: Blood and Sand - and Miranda Otto, who played Eowyn in The Two Towers and Return of the King. It's released on 29th Jan in the UK.

I really want to see Non-Stop. I love Liam Neeson and this looks like Taken, but on a plane. It pleases me to see older action heroes, especially believable ones and Liam Neeson still looks like he can kick arse. Action films are one of my favourite genres. It's out in the US and UK on Feb 28th.

The trailer for Home Front looks really good. This one is already out, allegedly, although I haven't seen a single trailer or even a mention of it anywhere. I'm a fan of The Statham. I'm not sure if James Franco can carry off a role as a baddie as I think he has a face for comedy (seeing him in Pineapple Express, yanno) but we shall see. This one was written and produced by Sylvester Stallone.

I'm also looking forward to finding out more about my #1 homeslice Jason Momoa's self-penned and directed Road to Paloma, which I believe is debuting at indie film festivals in 2014. From IMDB: Road To Paloma is the beautiful journey of two bikers traveling across America's vast west. While Native American Wolf (Jason Momoa) is being pursued by the FBI for having taken the law into his own hands, when his mother was raped and killed on their reservation he crosses paths with Cash (Robert Mollohan), a down and out musician who is coping with the end of his marriage. An unlikely friendship develops, as they ride together towards the Teton mountain range, where Wolf will spread his mothers ashes. The teaser doesn't give a lot away, but who cares? Momoa!

I'm also looking forward to this show. It's called The Tomorrow People, it's a remake of a British sci-fi show (which I've never heard of) and it has Luke Mitchell in it, who played Romeo in Home and Away. Boy done good getting into a Hollywood role so soon after leaving Aus. It started on the 8th Jan on E4 at 9pm so I'll catch a repeat hopefully and see if it's any good.

It might be a bit young for me - I'm not sure if it's aimed at the yoof, but we shall see!

What are you looking forward to this year in the cinema?

Thanks for reading.
