Two more recent films; both of which, I was quite disappointed to have missed out on viewing at the cinema.
One film I’d never heard of; another I was curious about, for inclusion of the word Walk within the title…
One stars Tom Hanks; the other has Emily Blunt.
Chances were high that I was going to like both of these films.
As I first watched the trailer for Run All Night in the cinema (a little over a year ago), I saw it as another attempt to ‘revive Bryan Mills’; Liam Neeson’s iconic leading role from the Taken franchise. I’d seen other films (including Unknown) that seemed to attempt the same feat, but with a relatively underwhelming climax.
First up this evening, we have a fairly well-received ‘thriller’ that strengthened Christian Bale’s CV ahead of selection for the starring role in the Dark Knight Trilogy.
When Amazon recommended another video about a long-distance walk, it instantly became a High Priority on my Love Film Rental List.
Mud is one of those films that Amazon randomly recommended to me, along with a list of others, inside an e-mail. Perhaps it was because I’d been renting other titles (Contact) that happened star Matthew McCounaghey. Either way, I was intrigued to see more about this man apparently living in the wild, surviving by his own means.
