Do include a link to the trailer, if you can.
I’m thinking of De Niro and Pacino together again (in ‘Righteous Kill’); Will Smith as ‘Hancock’ (does he do a film a year, that man?); history being given the Hollywood gloss-over treatment in ‘Valkyrie’ and ‘Sweeney Todd’; another Western adaptation of an Asian cult horror (‘The Eye’); and the new additions to the Batman, Indiana Jones, James Bond and Star Trek franchises.
Just please don’t mention ‘Mamma Mia!’ unless to say that it made you nauseous.
Although I watch a lot of films (in bursts, rather than closely keeping up with developments), I tend to discover older titles that I missed on their release. I haven’t yet seen any of the above, preferring a DVD to a visit to the cinema, so I’d particularly welcome your thoughts on which are worth watching and which should be given a wide berth when the newer have been transferred to disc.
Don’t worry if you’re a year out: late-2007 cinema releases which didn’t appear on DVD or Blu-ray until 2008 are fine.
In that case, ‘Cloverfield’ is the first that springs to mind. Seen that?
Throw in any stray thoughts you may have on the quality and value-for-money aspect of cinemas these days, the choice of films shown at the dominant multiplex chains, DVD prices, the last film you went to see or DVD bought, etc.
