Win The Way Back on DVD!

The Way Back DVD

It’s The Way Back, hitting DVD from Image on April 19th. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Starring four-time Oscar® nominee Ed Harris (Apollo 13), Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe), Oscar® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement) and Colin Farrell (In Bruges), this is an epic saga of survival; a trial of humanity and strength. The year is 1940, and seven prisoners have daringly escaped from a brutal Siberian gulag. But they find that having escaped one prison they are now surrounded by another: the brutal, unforgiving Siberian landscape. But freedom is tempting and the men begin a treacherous 4,500-mile trek, with little food and supplies. Their trust in each other is even less, but in order to withstand nature at its most terrifying extremes, they must learn to rely on each other and overcome their suspicions. Their compassion is further tested when they meet a teenage runaway who begs to join them on their quest.

Trailer? Sure thing:

Win “In Bruges” Swag

In Bruges poster

The movie is “In Bruges” (think of “Brooge” pronounced like “Scrooge”). It’s a comedy with Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes. Oh, and there’s guns. What more can you possibly want from a film? I’m amazed/slightly aghast that it’s in such limited release right now.

Anyway, here’s the synopsis they’ve given us:

Bruges, the most well-preserved medieval city in the whole of Belgium, is a welcoming destination for travellers from all over the world. But for hit men Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson), it could be their final destination; a difficult job has resulted in the pair being ordered right before Christmas by their London boss Harry (two-time Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) to go and cool their heels in the storybook Flemish city for a couple of weeks.

But the longer they stay waiting for Harry’s call, the more surreal their experience becomes, as they find themselves in weird encounters with locals, tourists, violent medieval art, a dwarf American actor (Jordan Prentice) shooting a European art film, Dutch prostitutes, and a potential romance for Ray in the form of Chloë (Clémence Poésy), who may have some dark secrets of her own. And when the call from Harry does finally come, Ken and Ray’s vacation becomes a life-and-death struggle of darkly comic proportions and surprisingly emotional consequences.

And there’s guns! Here, I’ll show you the trailer after the jump:

Daredevil (2003) – Movie Review

Daredevil Poster

Written by: Brian Helgeland & Mark Steven Johnson, based on characters created by Bill Everett, Stan Lee & Frank Miller
Directed by: Mark Steven Johnson
Starring: Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Colin Farrell, Michael Clarke Duncan, Jon Favreau

My Advice: Wait for cable.

Matt Murdock (in the older version, played by Affleck) was a good kid. His dad, Jack (David Keith), is a mildly washed up boxer who doesn’t want it to be known to his son that he’s working for a local hood. When an accident blinds Matt, Jack decides to straighten up and start kicking ass again–a decision that ultimately leaves Matt alone. But he’s not really alone–and he’s not really blind, of a sort. You see, what blinded him was some biohazardous goop that also jacked up his other senses like you wouldn’t believe. He’s able to, with his other four senses, create a picture of the world around him that enables him to be even better than before. He decides to put on some tights (and a dog collar, apparently) and go out into the world and kick ass–as Daredevil.

Minority Report (2002) – Movie Review

Minority Report movie poster

Written by: Jon Cohen & Scott Frank, based on the short story by Philip K. Dick
Directed by: Steven Spielberg
Starring: Tom Cruise, Colin Farrell, Max Von Sydow, Kathryn Morris, Samantha Morton

My Advice: Don’t Miss It.

Welcome to the middle of the 21st Century. Washington D.C. apparently was overrun by homicide a few years back, so they’ve established something called Precrime. Thanks to some precogs they keep locked up in the basement, the cops are able to bust you for murder…before you even commit the deed. It’s so effective, they haven’t had a single homicide in three years and the program’s about to go nationwide. John Anderton (Cruise) is the head burrito of Precrime in the field, and he’s damn good at what he does. However, when the precogs suddenly show him to be the next perp to be taken down, Anderton knows something has gone horribly wrong. But can he stay away from his old buddies long enough to figure out what the hell’s going on?
