Free Guy finally gets released this Friday. I’ve been looking forward to this for what feels like ages. I’m hearing mixed things, but I’m still going to go and see it. I’m hoping to do a double bill this Friday with Don’t Breathe 2.
The Courier is also out on Friday, but I’m not sure when I’m going to see that. Maybe Sunday afternoon.
I have The Nest booked in for tomorrow, the new Jude Law thriller. I’m not quite sure what to make of it from the trailer. It looks alright, but nothing too promising. I also have G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes booked in for Saturday. I don’t know anything about G.I. Joe, but saw the trailer for Snake Eyes before Black Widow and it looked like a decent Marvel-like film. I’m sure it will be entertaining.
On Wednesday, I’m going to see a secret screening at Cineworld. Have no idea what it’s going to be. I have a feeling it’s going to be The Courier, but if I could have anything it would be Annette – can’t wait to see that one.
It was my birthday at the weekend and I got a fair few films on DVD/Blu Ray that I’m planning on watching over the next week or two.
After watching Suspiria, I’ve been making my way through Argento’s films. Over the last couple of days I’ve watched Inferno, Mother of Tears and Bird with the Crystal Plumage. Tenebrae is the next one. I also got a voucher, so ended up buying 3 more Argento films, Dracula, Deep Red and Trauma, which will be arriving tomorrow.
I asked for The Happiness of the Katakuris based purely on the cover. I didn’t even realise it was by Takashi Miike which is another selling point. The back says Dawn of the Dead meets The Sound of Music.
Ordinary People was a nice surprise. I can’t say I’m familiar with it, but it’s Donald Sutherland, so I’m sure it will be good.
The Gamera box sets was a bit a of a gamble. I’m only just starting to get into Kaiju films, after being a fan of Godzilla for years. I regretted not getting Mothra recently, now that the new edition is out of print and prices have sky rocketed, so I thought I may as well ask for these ones when people were asking what I wanted. I’m sure I’ll love them and looking forward to watching them.
I know that physical media is on the way out, but until everything is available on streaming services, I think there will still be a place for it. There is nothing worse than going onto Netflix to find something has disappeared. I also may be in the minority, but I like the special features on films. Documentaries about how they made it, or what inspired it. Commentary tracks can also be interesting, it’s essentially a podcast over the film.
Thanks for reading and until next time,
