New Releases: 24th June

HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS
hanselgretelAction/horror/fantasy – the classic fairy tale gets an Underworld-style makeover, producing this slick action-packed gore-fest. Witch-hunting siblings prepare for the Blood Moon… Fun and trashy? Yep yep yep. Perfect hangover cure in that peanut butter-nutella-banana-malt-milkshake kinda way, but not a gingerbread house in sight (sad). Far cry from:
hanselandgretel
Big box office hit with a sequel on the way. Starring Jeremy Renner (Bourne Legacy) and Gemma Aterton (Quantum of Solace). Cert. 15
THIS IS 40:
This-is-40-posterIf this is 40, I think I’d like to go straight from 39 to 41, thanks. Another Judd Apatow film which makes you think relationships are just a giant pain in the arse, unless they’re the ones that last just 3 minutes when you’re 15. Not sure how he’s managed to maintain a marriage, let alone get his wife (and his 2 daughters) to act in this film, given that his outlook seems to be that all men are just hoping for their wives to drop dead so they can pick up a cheap hooker without any guilt… Based on the married couple you see having such an atrocious time together in Knocked-Up.
Starring Paul Rudd (Clueless) and Leslie Mann (AKA the seemingly unfortunate Mrs Apatow). Cert. 15
BROKEN CITY:
Broken-City-PosterCrime-drama/thriller with one of those suspiciously glitzy over-Oscar nominated casts… Mark Wahlberg plays ex-cop Billy Taggart, hired as a private detective by Russell Crowe’s powerful Mayor Nicholas Hostetler to investigate his wife’s suspected infidelity. However, the Mayor is not what he seems and Taggart finds himself framed and looking for revenge. Directed by Allen Hughes – one half of the Hughes Brothers who directed Menace II Society and From Hell. Cert. 15
MOVIE 43:
movie-43-trailer-movie-43-poster
A film that prides itself on being the MOST outrageous comedy with the BIGGEST cast – in case you didn’t get that from the poster. Apparently about nothing at all, just about being twisted, outrageous, a comedy of “epic proportions”, “not for the easily offended” and having a “ridiculously brilliant” cast. How bad can it be..? Rent it and find out. Cert. 15
MEA MAXIMA CULPA:

Documentary expose of the corruption and abuse apparently rife in the Catholic church.
