Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.04.14] scifi horror thriller



Easily one of my favourite films of 2014, The One I Love is a twisted little gem that's equal parts Twilight Zone and indie romance thriller.

I'll spare you spoilers, but ultimately it's a film that balances a surprising plot with resonant themes about people and the evolution of relationships.

The One I Love is definitely at the top of my recommendation pile this week!





Onwards!





Oof, just look at that cover. Hercules did okay at the box office, but I haven't spoken anyone who saw it, so I don't know what to say about it in terms of quality. I like Dwayne Johnson enough, but I have so little faith in Brett Ratner, that I can't image this is anything but a sub-par fantasy flick. I'm curious enough to Red Box it, however.




Another fantasy film I've yet to catch up with is The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. I found the first part to be an overly-long and odd looking film that failed to succeed in the same ways The Lord of the Rings trilogy did, so I sort of forgot about the series in all honesty. I hear this second part resolves many of these issues and features some pretty effective set pieces, so I plan on catching up this week and hit the last film in theaters over the holiday season.




The Dog chronicles the true story of John Wojtowicz, a NY man who attempted to rob a Brooklyn bank to pay for his lover's sex change operation. The fourteen hour hostage situation that ensued made headlines across the nation and spawned the movie Dog Day Afternoon starring Al Pacino.

Drawing upon extraordinary archival footage, The Dog shuffles between the 1970s and the 2000s with recent interviews recorded before his death. I've been looking forward to this film for some time and can't wait to check it out.

Here's the trailer:
