Revenge is the key ingredient to this film if you haven't already gathered from my little spiel. Set in present day New York, a crime lord's right-hand man is somewhat recruited by one of his boss' victims. With their mutual desire for retribution, little convincing is required.
Colin Farrell leads the troop in "Dead Man Down" and is accompanied by Noomi Rapace, Terrence Howard and Dominic Cooper. Directed by Niels Arden Oplev.
The Place Beyond the Pines
What would you do if you found out you had a child over a year after his/her birth? Would you continue going about your life like nothing happened? Or would you do everything in your power to provide for that child? Well the latter is exactly what motorcycle stunt rider, Luke, decides to do.
Having a very limited skill-set, he decides to turn to crime to provide for his son. The incident makes him the prime interest of a certain ambitious police officer. Little do they know that the incident will impact each of their families significantly for the years to come.
A film that depicts how one moment can define your life, "The Place Beyond the Pines" looks to be intense and captivating. Two of Hollywood's greatest talents is Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper lead the charge in this critically acclaimed drama. They are also joined by Rose Byrne, Ray Liotta and the ever so gorgeous Eva Mendes. Directed by Derek Cianfrance.
The Hangover Part III
The very funny and lucrative franchise of "The Hangover" unfortunately comes to an end with the third and final installment. The franchise has provided a lot of laughs, and I'm sure plenty of not so great celebration ideas over the last few years (well, at least not so great the following morning).
In part III we find the Wolfpack returns to where it all began, Vegas! With the reuniting of some familiar faces, and the execution of some very "The Hangover" ideas. The franchise looks as if it's going to go out with a bang, and so it should.
All your favourites return in part III with Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha and Ken Jeong. They're also joined by Heather Graham, Mike Epps, John Goodman and the amazing talented Melissa McCarthy.
The Great Gatsby
New York City in the 1920's was a place of loosening morals, glittering jazz, growing opportunities and an ever so rising stock market. A place where you would say the 'American dream' was anything but scarce. It was a city of growing interest and increased migration and it definitely caught the awe and attention of would-be writer Nick Carraway.
Nick sets his sights on finding his dream in New York. Upon his arrival to the city that never sleeps he moves next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire and as he discovers he is drawn to the ridiculously rich. Upon mixing in with their circle and observing their lives, loves and deceits, he writes a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy.
A film that shows that life then reflects many aspects of the present day. An all star cast including Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke and Aussies Jack Thompson, Isla Fisher, Joel Edgerton and Vince Colosimo. Directed by the nothing short of amazing storyteller, Baz Luhrmann.
