How weeks fly! Here we are with a good release week on the supertisous Friday 13th (November). I’ve actually got a movie of the week this week plus a loads other movies, so whats cooking this week?

we have a vigilante fighting pensioner and not a lot of people know that, today is armageddon with over the top CGI, an aviation icon. There’s also a man with no soule because he sold it, car loving crazies, an dark world war two story and a transvestite who was once a sabretooth and transported back to flower power days of the 1960’s.

My movie of the week is HARRY BROWN, you may have thought I would have went for 2012 no. Since it was promoted Harry Brown has been been plugged as Britians answer to Gran Torino and its probably true. The great thing about this movie is it touches subject which are very real to UK and parts of the world, problems of youth crime/culture, knife crime and harrassment of locals by the youths. The main thing is Michael Caine has went back to basics, back to what we love about a chance to be that tough style Harry Palmer type character and the show the youngsters how to be a hardman and the best at it!

Once again enjoy what ever movie you will go and see and Please Please and Please do a small review of the film and send it in thepeoplesmovies@gmail.com, include about 1-2 paragraphs minimum along with a rating out of five (1 been poor, 5 been excellent).
