Peppa Pig - Teaser Trailer


Peppa Pig and her friends and family get up to more hijinks than ever before in this new set of adventures - especially when her favourite Golden Boots magically disappear without a trace. Everyone sets out on a mass hunt to find where the missing boots have got to, but they just don't seem to be anywhere. Of course, the team still have plenty of fun - pranking one another and enjoying their regular playtimes in enormous muddy puddles - but just how is Peppa going to compete in the Puddle Jump Competition wthout her special shoes? Peppa consorts with a variety of animal friends from Suzy Sheep and Rebecca Rabbit to Zoe Zebra and Emily Elephant.

Children's animated series 'Peppa Pig' - created by BAFTA nominated Neville Astley and Mark Baker - prepares to hit the big screen after more than ten years of popularity on the small screen. Included in the hour long adventures of Peppa is new episode special 'The Golden Boots' as well as five other mini episodes. Peppa will also be joined by 'Milkshake!' presenters Jen, Derek and Kemi for yet more fun. The 'Peppa Pig' movie is scheduled to hit cinemas in the UK on February 14th 2015.

 

The Brothers Grimm Review


Weak

There could be no one better than Terry Gilliam to direct a tongue-in-cheek supernatural thriller set in a world of fairytales.

Unfortunately, in "The Brothers Grimm" -- a movie with a Terry Gilliam look and feel but without a Terry Gilliam soul -- the eccentric genius behind "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," "12 Monkeys" and "Brazil" seems to have had his spirit broken by studio mandates (like a hottie love interest) and commercial constraints (like a curtailed run time).

Set in French-occupied Germany during the early 19th century, the fable-warping story reinvents the the legendary Grimms as good-natured con artists, who only later became authors, immortalizing the likes of Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin and the Golden Goose by putting their own famous dark-candy spin on familiar folk tales. Here wily huckster Wilhelm (Matt Damon) and frustrated idealistic scholar Jakob (Heath Ledger) are traveling snake-oil salesmen, exploiting local superstitions, staging theatrical hauntings, then peddling their services as ghost busters.

The Messenger: The Story Of Joan Of Arc Review


OK

Joan of Arc, arguably history's most famous peasant girl, get a monster-budget makeover in "The Messenger," an appropriately over-produced, but not necessarily overwrought, grandiose epic biography from the indulgent mind of director Luc Besson.

From Besson's trademark lack of subtlety (which helped make "The Fifth Element" such a opulent and enjoyable exercise in sci-fi excess) to the babe-casting of "Element" hottie Milla Jovovich in the lead, "The Messenger" is a feast of lavish filmmaking that turns France's 15th Century virgin warrior into a pious, ardent action figure who would fit just as readily into a video game as she would into a confessional.

The movie hinges on Jovovich's performance as the evangelical 17-year-old girl who, without military experience and depending entirely on her conviction that she was an instrument of God, lead a vast army into bloody, ferocious battles that drove the occupying English out of large parts of France in order to seat her Dauphin (John Malkovich) on the throne as King Charles VII.
