That’s right folks, “What’s worth your money” is back we’re here to play “operation human shield” for you cinemagoers and help protect your eyes and your wallets from those bad flicks. There’s only one rule: GWP has to have scored it at least 3/1/2 stars.
This week's releases are as follows:
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 15
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt 2 HOYTS
Robot & Frank SONY/PINNACLE (QLD – NOV 29)
The Angel’s Share VENDETTA FILMS
God Bless America POTENTIAL FILMS
Dead Europe TRANSMISSION
The First Fagin RONIN FILMS
Two Little Boys HOPSCOTCH
This week's releases The First Fagin, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt 2 aren’t reviewed yet; Two Little Boys compelled no review (find Andy's tweets on the subject) so cinematic recommendations this week are as follows:
DEAD EUROPE mesmerised me. It was rich, engaging and the right blend of superstition and mystery to keep you guessing.
Cam @popcornjunkies Williams: The Angel's Share [rating=4]
The Angels’ Share is very reminiscent of the initial underdog status of ‘The Full Monty’ and mixes mirth with tears beautifully.
Blake @blakeisbatman Howard: Robot and Frank [rating=4]
Robot and Frank poses those big sci-fi, existential questions but with the bedside manner of a carer.
Maria @moviemazz Lewis: God Bless America [rating=3] and a half
Although it may feel a little slow at times and its violence a tad too confronting, God Bless America has one of the most important lessons to teach moviegoers in 2012.
Some great options to avoid that inevitable allure of the three way stare off of Twilight “The Quickening” or whatever the f*ck it's called.
Stay tuned next week - same Bat time, same Bat channel.
