Noah (Trailer #1) Review
Forgot this film was actually getting made, big budget Old Testament adaptations are quite rare nowadays. Should make for a fascinating retelling. My knowledge of this story is limited to Sunday school as a child and Evan All Mighty so obviously I had to do a little research. Apparently the story isn’t just a Christian story but also Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Mandaeism and Baha’i Faith have Noah and his arc in their religious texts. Also many other religions originating around the Middle East have some tale of floods, arcs and storing animals on them, so perhaps it has some basis in history. As for the beliefs surrounding it I am not opening that can of worms at all and I am just going to talking about how Noah has an Australian accent. So the trailer has some interesting visuals, all-star cast and water, lots water. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

This is the End (2013) Review
I had no real anticipation going into this film, the trailer was alright and whilst the reviews where mostly good I still didn’t feel it was for me. I couldn’t have been more wrong, this film was truly hysterical and I am not sure if it was the lack of good comedy films this year or that my expectations were particularly low but I loved. I couldn’t believe how funny this film was and how much I laughed. The cast were great, the visuals weren’t bad, the dialogue and humour is right on the money, and even the story moved along really well. I would recommend this film to anyone who liked Pineapple Express and Superbad. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

Jonah Hill: Is the power of Christ compelling me Jay? Guess what? It’s not that compelling.
Box Office Predictions (14-16th June) Results
Second week of predictions and the results are a little more in my ballpark. I even had more readers comment on the prediction and a few made their own, but who was closer? Well if you continue to the rest of this post you’ll find out. I know everyone is fixed on knowing the big releases scores this weekend but we can’t forget about the returning films of which one showed some shocking results. I also want to thank everyone for the likes and comments on my review of Man of Steel, of which beat my previous comment record with over 90 comments.
Box Office Predictions (14-16th June)
Second week of predictions isn’t going to be any easier with two wide releases which to say the least are wild cards. To be honest I like them that way because it’s more fun with making the predictions. I don’t see any returning films making a challenge to the new comers but you never know. One way or another this weekend should be fun to watch both in the cinema and on the figures. MAN OF STEEL!!! Go Watch it now!
