Mila Kunis with Justin Timberlake in Friends With Benefits

Mila Kunis with Justin Timberlake in Friends With Benefits

Last week didn’t hold much excitement in cinema-land however this week there are a few films we’d definitely recommend heading to your local cinema to catch on the big screen. There’s a great rom-com and a brilliant period drama on our list this week…

Friends With Benefits

This rom-com, starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, is definitely worth catching at the cinema. Having first thought I’d be in for a standard chick-flick formatted film that mildly entertained but that’s about it, I was actually pleasantly surprised.

Kunis and Timberlake are great together on screen and Timberlake’s acting skills were actually pretty good…. although, he may have moved on since his N-Sync days but he clearly enjoyed busting some moves in the film as you’ll see… you can take the actor from the boy band etc etc.

The story is all about Dylan (Timberlake) and Jamie (Kunis) who have both suffered in past relationships and are sick of getting burned. They decide to get physical, adding sex to their friendship and attempting to ignore the inevitable outcome revealed in numerous Hollywood romcoms with emotions always creeping their way in. The friends with benefits soon find themselves struggling to continue their no strings attached sex without any complications.

Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre

It’s very funny and we loved the falsh mob scene(s) so keep an eye out.

Jane Eyre

We loved this film because you can never have too much Charlotte Bronte… oh and Michael Fassbender makes for a brooding, tortured and really very watchable Mr Rochester. It stars Mia Wasikowska as Jane (Alice in Wonderland), Dame Judi Dench (James Bond), Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot and The Eagle) and hotty, Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds and X Men: First Class).

Jane Eyre is all about a young governess who is brought up by her Aunt Sarah after losing both her parents to typhus. The young Jane is soon sent off to a severely stark boarding school due to her perceived intolerbale disobedience. Jane suffers under the control of a strict and cold administration and she longs to turn 18 so she can leave. When the day finally comes, the educated Jane finds herself some work as a governess for the wealthy Adle Varens at Thornfield House. But she soon is desperate to flee as Mr Rochester’s coldness and his shattering secret become too much to handle.

Definitely one for a rainy day. I genuinely can’t think of anything better than snuggling up to Michael Fassbender.
