MOVIE OF THE WEEK: FRIDAY 8TH JANUARY NEW RELEASES



Share Share

Well Friday is with us once again and welcome to the first movie of the week for 2010! So whats on the screen this week? An apoclyptic Father-son tale, a compilcated romace for mature adults& sex,&drugs and rock ‘n’roll hitting me with my rythmn stick. An vampiric struggle to survive and not forgetting the most complexed mind busting test you’ll ever sit.

There was no problems picking this weeks movie of the week, it’s THE ROAD starring Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron, Kodi-smit McPhee and Robert Duvall. Based on the award winning book of the same name by Cormac McCarthy, this happy isnt a happy larry type movie as I noticed some newspaper journalists where expecting, this an a dark, emtional and deep troubling  look at a possible vision of a possible  future after a nuclear attack which a heart rending look at  Father/son relationship, a vision of some hope. Yes the movie has had its problems when we should have been talking about the movie this time last year, but after delays it has pulled to what looks a deep serious movie.

Exam did however run the movie of the week so close and this movie does get the old mind working and trying to put your best scooby doo investigation skills to good use. I do like the odd movie that makes the viewer think what the movie is all about instead getting movies laid out on easy street, the story is simple but is also an possible attack on todays society. Daybreakers is the only other movie I would suggest after the above two mentioned, after the past few years of been bombardied with older/teen vampire movies/tv programmes such as Twilight and True Blood its nice to see a slighty alternative approach to vampires where humans become bloodsuckers through a disease rather than been bitten.

Next week we will once again been in apoclyptic earth protecting some dude’s book, clocking up air miles with gorgeous Goerge as well as been been all about sandra bullock.

Anyway folks whatever movie you do go and see, enjoy it, travel safe to it in UK/Irelands freezing conditions and if you feel adventurous why not comeback and give us your review (with an score out of 5, and where you watched it as well as when), send reviews to: thepeoplesmovies@gmail.com
