James Franco in 127 Hours

James Franco in 127 Hours

Right we got two amazing films for you to go and see this week and both raise the English flag… which obviously makes us love them more! The first is directed by Englishman Danny Boyle (and stars hotty James Franco) and the other stars English Hollywood heavyweights, Colin Firth and Helena Bonham-Carter.

127 Hours

Genuinely a fantastic film, directed brilliantly by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and starring James Franco who is truely great in the film. If you can stand a few minutes of serious gore and Franco character has to get out of a rather tricky situation, this film is definitely worth the cost of a cinema ticket.

Synopsis (from ScreenRush.co.uk):

In April 2003 Aron Ralston (played by Franco) was on a solo climbing tour of Utah’s Blue John canyon when a half-tonne boulder became dislodged and fell on his arm trapping him at the bottom of a narrow ravine. Under a scorching sun Ralston spent five days trying to work his arm free finally finding the only way was to hack off his arm with a pocket knife. This is his remarkable story.

Out in cinemas now.

The King’s Speech

This film has already got people talking simply with the amount of nominations it’s received for this year’s Awards season (it’s got seven Golden Globes nominations already!) and considering we have yet to hear a bad review of it, we’re pretty sure we’re going to like it… A LOT!

Plus you can’t beat a bit of Colin Firth.

Synopsis (from ScreenRush.co.uk):

King George V’s second son, Prince Albert, was never supposed to inherit the throne. Shy, introverted compared to his flamboyant older brother, he was also afflicted with a nervous stammer which, despite the best efforts of numerous physicians and therapists, persisted in making his public appearances a nightmare. But when Albert is introduced to an eccentric Australian speech therapist whose lack of regard for royal protocol begins to show results he finds himself growing into the role thrust upon him following his brother, now Edward VII’s sudden abdication.

Out in cinemas now.
