2 British films to watch for

I love a good movie trailer, but I have to say that I’m growing irritated by the extended time that commercials and trailers are taking up these days. Twenty minutes? Seriously? Are you with me?

But sometimes, it is great to spot something you’d actually like to see!

Last weekend, we went to the movies and saw “Frances Ha.” along with a couple of British films that I would love to see …

First up, “About Time” written by Richard Curtis of “Love Actually” and “Notting Hill” fame. It’s due out Nov. 8 in the U.S.

Secondly, Simon Pegg stars in “The World’s End,” which looks as good as “Shawn of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz.” It’s due out Aug. 23 in the U.S.

  1. I saw Hot Fuzz again on Sunday. Although it’s funny in places, it’s very silly. The “committee of evil” was not very convincing.

    • Hi Rob, I haven’t seen Hot Fuzz in years (since it first came out). I might need to revisit (I will say that Simon Pegg was brilliant in Star Trek Into Darkness)…

  2. Yes, I think Simon Pegg is good. Indeed, he was good in Hot Fuzz. I don’t recall any poor acting performances in it. It was the plot that was suspect.

    Oh dear, my plugins aren’t happy so I’m seeing a black square. Never mind: if Richard Curtis has a new film out, I’ll be there!
