Hungry Hearts Trailer


To the outside world, Jude and Mina on a very happy course. They live in an apartment in New York City and when Mina falls pregnant, it's just another happy occurrence. However, everything isn't what it seems and this is even more evident when the baby arrives. Mina instantly becomes incredibly agoraphobic and leaves the outside world behind. Cutting herself and the baby off from medicines and any form of external contaminates leaves Mina becoming more and more paranoid and their son actually suffering from her efforts.

Jude must find a way to stop Mina spiralling out of control and bring her back to reality before it's too late for all of them.

Hungry Hearts is a psychological drama directed by Saverio Costanzo which sees Adam Driver taking on one of his hardest roles to date.

Learning To Drive Trailer


Manhattan book critic Wendy is forced to adjust to a dramatic life change when her husband leaves her for a younger woman, and sets out to reclaim her independence. The problem is, having lived in the Big Apple all her life, she has never learned to drive. So the fiery writer decides to take lessons from Darwan, a softly spoken, patient taxi driver from India who is about to embark on an arranged marriage. As the pair get to know each other behind the wheel, they both learn valuable lessons, and an unlikely friendship develops between these two very different New Yorkers. It's a friendship that will change their lives for ever.

White House Down Trailer


When USCP officer John Cale is turned down as he applies for a highly coveted role in the Secret Service, he is devastated but cannot find it in himself to disappoint his young daughter Emily who idolises him and his job. In a bid to give Emily an experience to remember, he takes her on a tour of the White House, but what started out as the most normal of days (if a little extra exciting for Emily) quickly becomes a situation of life and death when terrorist groups launch a series of bombs that hit the White House causing a shocking scene of devastation. John now finds himself with the responsibility of keeping his daughter safe from harm as well as protecting President James Sawyer along with the rest of his country. He may have lost out on becoming an official protector of the President, but he now faces a true test of his abilities that is unlikely to go unnoticed.

The Haunting Of Molly Hartley Review


Bad
Molly Hartley is a troubled teen -- misunderstood, depressed, haunted. School sucks, and her psychotic mother has just been locked up after stabbing Molly in the chest. If that's not enough, and it's not (for a good movie at least), Molly learns from her mother that her soul is lost, and she will join Satan's army when she turns 18. Is she crazy? And if not, why does she keep hearing voices?

In spite of its retro title and touches, The Haunting of Molly Hartley is a typical horror film -- occasionally unpleasant, intermittently scary, set in a Bible-obsessed American town where no one is as normal as they seem. There's nothing wrong with this premise; evangelicals believe lots of crazy things. But everything in this movie is predictable, from the slow episodic pace to the creepily derivative music, and you've seen it all before.

100 Mile Rule Review


Weak
In case you're wondering, the titular "100 Mile Rule" is that if you're more than 100 miles away from home, you can do whatever you want (i.e. cheat on your wife) and it doesn't count. This funny-err-sorta setup quickly gives way to an odd blackmail scheme, as one of the girls our three businessmen encounter threatens to tell the wife about their dalliance. The schizophrenic flick is derivative, scattered, and awfully familiar. Even a strangely cast Michael McKean can't elevate it from the late-night cable fare it's destined to be.

U-571 Review


Good
It's finally time to reassess the submarine movie to see if it's outlived its useful life. I was skeptical enough when Crimson Tide came out in 1995, feeling like a knockoff of The Hunt for Red October, itself an homage to Das Boot, it something of an homage to Run Silent, Run Deep. They even made Down Periscope, which four years of therapy have not helped me to forget.

U-571 takes the Das Boot path, starring a dozen of the sweatiest men in Hollywood (the makeup department working overtime on this one), all led by everyone's favorite naked bongo player, Matthew McConaughey. Loosely based on real events, U-571 involves a WWII mission to capture a German Enigma encryption device from a sinking German submarine adrift in the middle of the Atlantic. Skipper Bill Paxton and his 2nd in charge McConaughey hop to the task, dressing up their wreck of a sub to look just like a German U-boat. One guy on the crew speaks German, so there shouldn't be a problem in posing as a rescue ship, right?

Cherry Review


OK
Worse romantic comedies have been produced, for sure. Cherry is an unfortunately-titled love affair with twentysomething model-cum-actress Shalom Harlow as a virgin who (a) was left at the altar at age 17, and (b) now wants a baby. Her search for a man despite not even knowing how to kiss leads her to a professional clown and her OB/GYN. Sounds just like life, no? At least Harlow is cute enough to watch and smart enough to not make you want to rip your ears off.

The Cell Review


Good
And I thought I'd seen some twisted movies. Get ready for the real psych-out of the year, the long-awaited Jennifer Lopez vehicle The Cell, the most daring production to come out of Hollywood since Fight Club.

Note however that daring does not necessarily mean good. While The Cell is a deeply disturbing picture, it doesn't always impress. And though I am fine with digitally vivisectioning a horse into ten quivering pieces for dramatic effect, I'm not sure I needed to see Vincent D'Onofrio poking a hole in Vince Vaughn's stomach in order to pick out some intestine to spiral around a rotisserie. (No, really.)

Wendigo Review


Extraordinary
An old friend took a weekend trip with me to Rhode Island, deep in the woods where I grew up. When night fell, she became instantly terrified by the silence, gripping my arm and asking me to go outside the house and check whether there was anyone out on the lawn.

The imagination is a powerful tool, untrustworthy but also oddly protective. When you're a child, sometimes it's all you have to shield you from the hard, cold facts of reality. Eight-year-old Miles (Erik Per Sullivan, The Cider House Rules) is our perceptive guide into the world of the unknown during a long weekend trip to snowy Vermont. Real danger comes into his path when his father, George (Jake Weber, The Cell), hits a deer, leading to an apprehensive confrontation with angry backwoods hunters. These men with guns want some retribution for losing their prize -- the antler has been cracked. As Kim (Patricia Clarkson, The Pledge) tells her son not to worry, we wonder whether writer-director Larry Fessenden is taking us into unsettling Flannery O'Connor territory.

U-571 Review


OK

Waiting for the "U-571" screening to begin the other night, I got into a conversation with a couple other reviewers, wondering aloud if there's any such thing as a bad submarine movie.

Somebody brought up "Down Periscope," a near-laughless 1996 military comedy with Kelsey Grammar, so we narrowed our discussion to submarine dramas.

"Gray Lady Down," someone else suggested, referring to a 1977 Charleton Heston sinking-survival yawner.
