It's been a while....

I haven't posted in a while, I know.  This is because there hasn't been anything that's excited me that I haven't already posted once before. And I have no interest in The Fault in Our Stars or Dumb and Dumber 2. 

It is tempting to add trailer #1, #2 and so on of what I've already posted, but I avoid various editions of a trailer because they almost give away the whole film...possibly all the good bits.

But I have now come across something I would like to share....Birdman.

Lucy (2014)

Director: Luc Besson

Principal Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman

I love Luc Besson's films. They are quite silly at times but so enjoyable. Leon: The Professional and The Fifth Element being two of my favourites.

In this Sci fi a woman accidentally caught in drug trafficking transforms into a 'super' human after the drugs that have been planted inside her leak and allow her too use over 80% of her brain capacity. Silly but good.
