Their Finest Trailer


It's the early 1940s and World War II is in full swing. Bombs are raining down on London in the Blitzkrieg threatening to tear the country in two, but the British are made of sturdier stuff. Catrin Cole is a writer who comes to realise that the absence of ambitious young men in the workplace due to recruitment into the army has opened a door for her. She is appointed by the film division of the Ministry of Information to write the supplementary women's dialogue of a new propaganda film about Dunkirk, however she is told that she'll get no screen credit and won't be paid as much as her male counterparts. She goes one step further and writes the whole script, impressing all involved if leaving them a little indignant. Plus, she finds an unlikely ally in an aging film star named Ambrose Hilliard, who longs for the days he had major roles.

Salmon Fishing In The Yemen Review


Good
The heavy hand of a screenwriter (or perhaps novelist) intrudes on an otherwise jaunty, engaging little story, fruitlessly trying to stir up suspense when none was needed. And filmmaker Hallstrom indulges in rather too much sappy sentiment.

Fred (McGregor) is a UK government fishing expert assigned to help a wildly wealthy sheikh (Waked) create a fly-fishing site in the Yemen. Working with the sheikh's financial advisor Harriet (Blunt), Fred struggles to overcome his doubts about the scheme. But he's won over by the fact that the sheikh is both passionate about fishing and has enough cash to achieve the seemingly impossible. As Fred begins to fall for Harriet, he'll need to make a decision about his estranged wife (Stirling), while Harriet's special-services boyfriend (Mison) has gone missing in action.

Snow White and the Huntsman Trailer


The Evil Queen, Ravenna, is very beautiful but very deadly. Early in her reign, she despaired over 'battles fought and lives lost' but now, she draws strength from the cries of war. Each day, she looks in her magic mirror and asks 'who is the fairest of them all?' The answer is always her.

Salmon Fishing In The Yemen Trailer


Dr. Fred Jones is a middle-aged scientist working for the National Centre for Fisheries Excellence in London. One day, he gets a call from a Harriet Chetwode-Talbot, who works for a sheik. The sheik has had an idea to introduce the British sport of salmon fishing to the Yemen, in the Middle East. However, Fred flatly refuses when meeting with Harriet in London, saying the idea is ridiculous and pointing out that the fish could not survive in the very different environment. He leaves the meeting and the matter is soon forgotten about.

Sometime later, British politicians receive word that a bomb exploded in the Middle East. Politician Bridget Maxwell is reluctant to release the news story, saying that she does not want to make the war on Afghanistan any worse. Instead, she instructs her colleagues to find a positive news story from the Middle East to release. After several failed attempts, they discover plans to introduce salmon fishing in the Yemen.

With pressure from the government, Fred has no choice but to go ahead with the idea and so he travels to the Yemen to meet the sheik and Harriet. During his time there, he discovers to his surprise that the sport is a great success. He also finds himself falling for Harriet. While Fred has always had a dull life, he soon finds himself becoming happier and more relaxed the longer he stays in the Yemen and with Harriet.

Still Crazy Review


Weak
Imagine if the cast of Trainspotting started a rock band in the 1970s which faded away, then 30 years later they got together for an old-fogies reunion tour. Okay, that movie would be a whole lot more fun than Still Crazy, which plays like a Roger Daltry nightmare filled with bad jokes about being an old, half-stoned, washed-up rocker. Completely full of itself and filled with self-importance, this is more of a eulogy than an homage to a late, great era.

Maybe Baby Review


Good
Infertility movies have been made before with middling success (Forget Paris), and this all-Brit redux also has its moments of levity and moments of melodramatic nonsense. Packed full of A- and B-list celebs, including just about anyone from the UK who's ever been in a movie. Amusing but not terribly filling (no pun intended). based on the novel Inconceivable (presumably, pun intended).

Triumph Of Love Review


Bad
The moral of love: Be manipulative and conniving to get the man (or woman) you want, even if a few other folks get their hopes crushed along the way. That's what's certain after watching Clare Peploe's depressing fairytale/restoration comedy Triumph of Love (based on a superficial Marivaux play originally performed in 1732). That's not the filmmaker's intention, though. She's clearly going for whimsy, light romance, and slapstick cuckolding. What her film lacks is a heart and a conscience.

Mira Sorvino plays a princess who dresses up as a dandified male student to infiltrate the summertime estate of a misogynistic philosopher (Ben Kingsley). Under the old man's tutelage, a dashing prince (Jay Rodan) has been instructed to distrust the female sex. So clever Sorvino attires herself as a man to earn his friendship, trust, and above all, love.
