Mimi’s Pick of the Flicks

Iron Man 2

Now this week I’m afraid to say that we haven’t had a chance to hit the pictures to do our standard trial-and-error for you all. However reports are that these two films are pretty good.

So for the action-junkies out there, aka BATD’s Emma (!), we’ve got Iron Man 2. She’s ridiculously excited about this film so I can only assume it will be full of action, good looking people and slightly ridiculous storylines… there’s a guy with whip weapons, need I say more…

After revealing himself to be Iron Man, smooth-talking billionaire Tony Stark is under pressure from the U.S. government to hand over the technology for his powerful suit. While Stark’s competitor Justin Hammer begins work on a suit for the Government, another nemesis in the form of Ivan Vanko emerges. Under the persona of Whiplash, Vanko aims to take bloody revenge on the Stark family, and it isn’t long before he joins forces with Hammer to destroy Iron Man.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed

Then there’s something for Mimi-minded people: The Disappearance of Alice Creed. This thriller looks pretty intense but has Gemma Arterton in it which is a good sign (always nice to see actresses pushing their stereotype). As I’ve said, I haven’t seen this yet but I definitely want to!

Two kidnappers carry out an immaculately planned kidnap after targeting a rich girl. But Alice Creed makes it clear that she’s not just going to play her part in silence while waiting for her father to pay the ransom and so the kidnappers’ plan quickly beings to unravel with all three characters revealing an agenda that ends in a tense power play of greed, love, sex and violence.
