This week marks the release of Pacific Rim – Guillermo del Toro's new fantastical monster movie which is best described through the directors own words; ”it's giant fucking robots versus giant fucking monsters”. In a future where gigantic creatures have invaded our world through a portal from another dimension, the humans have been forced to great equally giant robots to fight the monsters. But nothing seems to hold up against the reckless creatures, and when all hope is almost lost there is one last effort to end the war with the robots, or Jeagers as they're called, to save humanity once and for all.
Guillermo del Toro, who've made film such as Pan's Labyrinth and the Hellboy movies, has here created a powerful and fantastically visual sci-fi adventure that is a beautiful mix of Japanese monster film, American 80s action and anime movies. If you're a fan of monster movies, dystopian futures and action of epic proportions - this is a film you can not miss!
We've all been there. At the end of the school years when the future is unknown and you don't really know what you're going to do with your life. Such is the case for Sutter Keely in the new romantic coming of age drama The Spectacular Now. He's the party guy with a smile on his face, but not the best student in class. When he gets dumped by his girlfriend he takes consolation in drinking, but when he meets his complete opposite in Aimee he realizes that maybe there's more ways to deal with life.
The Spectacular Now is directed by James Ponsoldt who made his directorial debut last year with Smashed. And just like in Smashed he here finds a way to show the beautiful in the tragic. Miles Teller (Project X) and Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) plays the lead characters and both delivers very true and moving performances.
For those who enjoys films such as (500) Days of Summer, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and last weeks The Way Way Back, The Spectacular Now is a must! And for more young adult and coming of age movies; check out our special section here.
After having returned to both Toy Story and Cars, the time has come to once again meet the loveable monsters of Monsters Inc., the 2004 Pixar hit film. This time around though, it's not a sequel, but a prequel. In Monsters University we get to see the story of how Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan first met during their years at the university trying to become professional ”scarers”.
Watch this lovable follow up in either English original version or in your local language.
Weddings is an excellent topic for movies. It can be both romantic (Love Is All You Need), funny (Bachelorette), sad (Rachel Getting Married), beautiful (Letters to Juliet) and frightening ([REC 3]). Most importantly, it's a time when many people gathers together and families unite. And that's what the key story in new film The Big Wedding is about.
Here, two young lovers (Amanda Seyfried and Ben Barnes) is about to get married. The wedding is held at the grooms father (Robert De Niro) who is divorced with the children's mother (Diane Keaton) and now lives with his new wife (Susan Sarandon). When the whole family is gathered together for the first time in years, old feelings surface up and creates a tumultuous couple of days before the wedding.
