Not a bad week for movies with Triangle actually been my favourite choice but due to been a 18 it will limit the amount of people watching it, the trailer is decieving this is has alot of mindbennding WTF stuff in it and the critics are loving it 4/5 is average score, so over 18 go see this. If you are under 18 the movie choice of the week goes to THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS, former Monty Python Terry Gilliam’s new movie and also the movie the late Heather Ledger was making was he tragically died at a very young age, 27? If you like your horror’s foreign there is Korean movie Thirst, keeping with foreign movies there is the thai action – martial arts movie ONG Bak:The beginning. If comedy is your thing you haveCouples Retreat starring Vince Vaughan though it doesnt look that funny and the critics have only been giving it 2/5 average though it has done very well the last few weeks at the American box-office.
What ever movie you go and see do enjoy it and please send me a review, yes I say this every week but no one replys, but enjoy it and here’s the info on this weeks British and Irish releases:
