(500) Days of Summer

(500) Days of Summer

It’s a  Bank Holiday this weekend so chances are we’ll be in for just a bit of rain, luckily there are a selection of great films out to help you while away a possible cloudy days. For the cinema our pick this week includes (500) Days of Summer and Judd Apatow’s latest offering Funny People. If you have decided to take up residence on your sofa this weekend, The Damned United is our top DVD choice.

(500) Days of Summer
It’s the not so classic story of boy meets girl, boy falls in love, girl not so much.  When Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) , a hapless greeting card copywriter and hopeless romantic is blindsided after his girlfriend Summer (Zooey Deschanel)  dumps him, he shifts back and forth through various periods of their 500 days “together” to try to figure out where things went wrong. His reflections ultimately lead him to finally rediscover his true passions in life and as Summer comes to an end could Autumn bring him happiness? I LOVED this movie, happy and sad but cute, GO SEE IT! (Juno fans will love it)

Funny People

Funny People

Funny People
Hollywood hot stuff Judd Apatow directs another winning gem in Funny People, the story of successful actor George, who is unhappy despite his relative fame and is estranged from his friends and family. When he discovers that he has an 8% chance of recovering from leukemia, George (as played by Adam Sandler) returns to treading the boards in an attempt to retrace the steps of history and understand what went wrong. He subsequently meets Seth Rogen’s Ira, who dreams of being a comedian but works in a deli, and the two comics exchange a barrage of rude humour and heartfelt witticisms. With Jonah Hill and Jason Schwartzman also co-starring, Funny People is a raw and touching story of life, love and change in the gloomy, looming face of death.

The Damned United
Ever since we saw Michael give his superb performances as Tony Blair in The Queen and as Journalist David Frost we have been firm Sheen fans. He shines equally as bright in this brilliant film. Chronicling the 44 days in which Brian Clough was the manager of Leeds United, we follow Brian as he takes over the reins from his bitter rival Don Revie. It’s dark humour and great story line make this our must see DVD movie.
