Well that Friday Feeling is here again! Well its a smaller relaease day today with only  two mainstream movies hitting the cinemas in UK and Ireland. So what arw those 2 movies? Well dont forget your torch as auld mad max is taking somewhere we dont want to go in the dark and a sweet young girl who just wants to loved and be better in life is abused, but she doesnt know how much shes loved.

No movie of the week but the first movie is EDGE OF DARKNESS, Mel Gibson’s Return to the big screen with thriller which does look decent and based on an award winning BBC Drama of the same name and is also directed by the same director Martin campbell who also done the recent Casino Royale movie , Daniel Craigs introduction to James Bond (and that scene that had women world wide drooling like Homer J Simpson when he cam out of the water only in his swimming pants and a sixpack some girls die for in a man, in my case ill only have a sixpack of irn bru!)

The second movie is PRECIOUS based on a novel by Sapphire. This was the movie that the critics couldn’t stop praising during its time travelling around the 2009 festivals and after 12 months it finally arrive on our shores. The movie is about precious an overweight, illiterate teen who is pregnant with her second child is invited to enroll in an alternative school in hopes that her life can head in a new direction. This is one for the teerjerkers  of you outthere it is a simple story with an complicated background a young girl been abused who just wants to be happy and loved. This is also the movie that shows Mariah Carey can take five minutes out on been a diva and do some acting!!!

I say this every week but only get the replys of silence I love and appreciate your comments on my blog, but I cant simply do everything here, I need your help especially on reviews and one kind soul did come out and help me. Stand up Travis McCollum, thank you my friend your contributions (yes 4 not 1 review!) are a godsend! So You dont have to send reviews every week but theres so many movies outthere its hard to review all, so why not do a review email it to me at thepeoplesmovies@gmail.com with a rating out of five and ill post it.

So whats cooking next week?Disney go back to basics with a jazz era version of a classic fairytale, Clint Eastwood takes us back in time for a game of rugby in south africa, Conan the barbarian creator treat us to his other hero as he takes on sleighing demons, Americans rip apart an anime icon and Michael Cera tries to loose his virginity and revolt with the aide of his evil, rebellious self.
