Upcoming Movies – Januarys Film Pick
Orange Wednesdays is the night for movies, well in my eyes, I love to go to the cinema every week and I would consider myself I big movie fan. I thought in this article I would cover my top 5 movies to see this month.
1. New Years Eve
If you haven’t already seen it, I think New Years Eve is a must see to bring in the New Year. I have seen this one and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The plot reminds me of Valentine’s Day and Love Actually. This movie comes from the makers of Valentine’s Day and it is clear to see. This film has a great cast from the simply great Robert De Niro to younger cast members like Zac Efron and Lea Michele. The story follows the events and preparations of individuals across New York City on New Year’s Eve. It is a story of love, memories, hope and generally an all round feel good film.
2. Mission Impossible : Ghost Protocol
This one is another film I have seen recently, i do sometimes feel that these long running movies can get boring over years and years, but mission impossible didn’t disappoint. The story starts when the IMF or the secret government group Tom Cruise works for is shut down this is because it is implicated in the bombing of the Kremlin, this causes Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his new team to go rogue and attempt to clear their organization’s name. I thought this film was action packed and a great watch for any action thriller lovers, it must be said that Simon Pegg adds a great comedy aspect to the movie.
3. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
This one I have not seen yet but after seeing the first I will definitely be giving this one a visit next Wednesday. After watching the trailer I think A Game of Shadows seems more action packed. I have heard from friends that it is very good but Sherlock Holmes constant need to tell the audience what he is about to do when fighting can seem annoying to some people. With the reviews that I have read and having seen the first one i cannot wait to get to Wednesday and see it.
This one is released in mid January. I’ve been aware that this film is coming out and I will hope to see it as soon as it’s released. This film is relevant to us at the current time. The people of Rome are hungry, tired and poor. Coriolanus, the hero of Rome was a great soldier and full of self-belief, he utterly despises the people of Rome and his loud views ignite a riot. Rome is squeezed of its blood. Manipulated by politicians Coriolanus is banished from Rome, this is where he befriends the enemy and the story unwinds. For those who love war time thrillers with plenty of action this is perfect. I hope I will enjoy this as I greatly admire Gerard Butler and Ralph Fiennes who played Lord Voldermort in one of my favourite films Harry Potter.
5. One For The Money
After getting divorced and let go from Macys department store where she sold lingerie Stephanie Plum gets a new job at her cousin’s bail-bond business. On her first assignment she gets put on the trail of a highly wanted local cop, which just so happens to be from her romantic past. This is one for the girls I must say I can see the guys getting a laugh or two from some of the scenes. This film is a classic Rom Com, but I do like Katherine Heigl so I can give this one a chance, as I secretly always end up enjoying them.
