Tuesday 5 July 2016

It's been a while since I've done a film related posts and with a lot of lazy summer nights and sleepovers coming up, why not make a list of some movies I've come across on social media that look pretty sick. Most of these will not be shown in the cinema so I guess you're gonna have to be rebellious and stream them online guys. 


Plot: A group of wealthy boys in Los Angeles during the early 1980s establish a 'get-rich-quick' scam that turns deadly.

It's starring a lot of hot men and Emma Roberts, so it's bound to be a good one. We'll have to wait a little bit longer for this to be released and we don't even have a trailer yet guys.


Plot: A high school senior finds herself immersed in an online game of truth or dare, where her every move starts to become manipulated by an anonymous community of "watchers."

This movie comes out at the end of the month and it looks so damn good. The basis of the movie is something we haven't really seen before so it brings something new to the movie scene. Emma Roberts seems to be in everything these days. 


Plot: In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.

Again, this movie features no cliches and makes you feel a strange way about love. You'll either feel very depressed after watching it or very hopeful for future relationships. 


Plot: In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.

I stumbled across this movie trailer on Facebook a few months ago and completely forgot what it was called. Thankfully IMDB announced it was being released this week so I managed to retrieve the title. This movie looks so interesting and is one that will probably open your eyes and your heart. 


Plot: In 1951, Marcus, a working-class Jewish student from New Jersey, attends a small Ohio college, where he struggles with sexual repression and cultural disaffection, amid the ongoing Korean War.

I haven't seen Logan Lerman in anything since Perks of Being a Wallflower (fave) and this has been dubbed to be one of his best performances to date. If you love a good old fashioned love story then this is the movie for you. 


Plot: Reeling from a terrifying assault, a 19 year-old boy enrolls into college with his brother and pledges the same fraternity. What happens there, in the name of "brotherhood" tests the boy and his loyalty to his brother in brutal ways.

Hey look it's Nick Jonas! This movie looks like it's going to be slightly fucked up but still manages to grab your attention. Plus frat movies are always interesting in one form or another. Sadly we'll have to wait another two months before seeing it.  


Plot: A guy gets more than he bargained for after entering into an affair with the wife of an investment banker. Soon, a suspicious death and substantial life insurance policy embroil him in a scandal.

This movie stars that dopey looking annoying blonde actress and another cameo by Nick Jonas, as well as that silver fox Dermot Mulroney who just seems to get better with age. It's one of those mysterious "sexy"films that can go either be a hit or plain shit. This movie is already available to stream to let me know your thoughts on it if you watch it!


Plot: An artist falls for a young married woman while he's commissioned to paint her portrait during the tulip mania of 17th century Amsterdam.

If you like period dramas then this looks like a promising one. Alicia Vikander was great in The Danish Girl and the trailer sets up this movie to be pretty intense and er, passionate. 


Plot: Two teenage girls travel across the U.S. in 1962, during the chaos of the Cuban missile crisis, in search of Eleanor Roosevelt.

I do love road trip movies! This looks like the kind of movie targeted at teenagers but I think it would be just as enjoyable for young adults. It's just one of those films that leave you feeling all joyful and ready to book your nest trip abroad with your best pals. 


Plot: A man suffering an incredible amount of loss enrolls in a class about care-giving that changes his perspective on life.

This movie is based off the book "The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving" by Jonathan Evison and now I wish I would have read the book first! (It's on its way) Starring the hilarious Paul Rudd and Craig Roberts (and a cameo from Selena Gomez) it follows both of them as they road trip across America crossing off a list of weird road side attractions Trevor has been wanting to visit. As I said, I've always been a fan of road trip movies as they tend to spark my wanderlust, but this movie has plenty of sharp humour and for a movie that could easily have been very depressing, it manages to keep your spirits lifted and laughing and slightly inappropriate things. For those of you with Netflix it couldn't be any easier to watch this movie!

What movies are you looking forward to seeing this summer? I'd love to hear about some great movies you've seen lately!
