What's Happening Where I Am: Cinema and DVD releases here, 29/04/11

Cinema Releases

Thor is the only major release here this week. I shall be going to see this hopefully this weekend, which will mark my first watched 2011 release (I know it's late, but don't judge me, every time I've had the chance to go to the cinema this year has been to see a 2010 release). I wasn't actually too keen on going to see it, but after the positive reviews I decided I might give it a go, in 3D, no less. After all, Chris Hemsworth has turned out to be a real hottie since his Home and Away days and Natalie Portman is in it. And I hear that Jeremy Renner has an appearance also. If anything has Jeremy Renner in it, I'm there!

Oh and I thought that it was worth pointing out that King George VI: The Man Behind the King's Speech comes out in cinemas across the country this week. Yes, a documentary on the real King George the Stammer. Jesus Christ, they're still playing The King's Speech in cinemas everywhere. It comes out on DVD later next month. Wait until then, NZ, after all, it's cheaper. But anyway, this doco has been advertised with "Features interviews with Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter!!!" Uh, so is this a doco on the movie, or a doco on the real Bertie? Well, I'm not making any effort to find out, you all know where I stand on the topic of The King's Speech..."Fuck. Fuck! Fuck, fuck, fuck and fuck! Fuck, fuck and bugger! Bugger, bugger, buggerty etc, etc, etc..."

DVD releases

Of course, The Kids Are All Right came out on DVD this week. I was going to review this for the paper, as I wanted to review every single Oscar nominee, but I decided against it upon watching it again. There are five different sex scenes in the movie, and I don't want to be held accountable for telling the people of this small town that it's a good movie. Especially if they know my real age.

I watched Little Fockers because it was just sitting there and I had nearly a whole week to watch it (thank you early suppliers!). The movie was pretty crap, though. If that was supposed to be funny, then I'm actually starting to think that Due Date was a masterpiece.

Made in Dagenham was also one I watched because of those early suppliers. That was an interesting history lesson on how woman came to be better than men (woops, I mean equal). It was fun, fluffy, and a little sad. But really, I spent the whole film waiting for Rosamund Pike to turn up because she is perfect. Sticking her in all those gorgeous dresses helped that out too.

Any thoughts on these films? And who's going to watch the Royal Wedding? I shamefully admit that I'm kinda excited about it.
