WHAT TO WATCH?! – 16/7

A quick selection of what’s on tonight for your viewing pleasure 🙂

SKY SHOWCASE @ 8pm

  • DARK SHADOWS – Once again Johnny Depp teams up with the dark duo that is Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter and a whole heap of make up to bring this fantasy vampire tale to life. Wickedly funny as Johnny never fails to deliver. Not his best work but not his worst either. Watch it if you wanna have some fun!

SKY ACTION AND ADVENTURE @ 9pm

  • THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN – Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man is my favourite Spider-Man if im truly honest. Something about this guy made this particular Peter Parker outing something to remember. Not sure about Emma Stone but hey, we cant like everything!

ITV 4 @ 11pm

  • TRAINING DAY – Can i ever get bored of this film? No, and neither will you. Denzel Washington is amazing as ever with Ethan Hawke as the rookie cop he takes under his wing who realise the police force isnt all its cracked up to me. One of the greats me thinks

A quick selection of what’s on tonight for your viewing pleasure 🙂

SKY SELECT @ 10pm

  • THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGOON TATTOO – Director David Fincher (The Social Network, Se7en, Fight Club) is the safe pair of hands charged with the American remake of Stieg Larsson’s mesmerising Swedish thriller. Rooney Mara has the unenviable task of stepping into Noomi Rapace’s leathers as cyber punkette Lisbeth Salander while Daniel Craig plays raddled investigative hack Mikael Blomkvist, employed to solve an old family murder mystery.

SKY DRAMA & ROMANCE @ 10:15pm

  • 13 GOING ON 30 – Jennifer Garner is fast forwarded 17 years only to discover she’s a conniving editor of a style magazine and a sexual predator to boot. Garner performs a neat comedy turn with the always watchable Mark Ruffalo as Matt – the love she could have had but lost. Big for girls.

SKY DISNEY @ 10:30pm

  • BRAVE – Pixar heads to the Scottish Highlands for this engaging tale about Merida (Kelly Macdonald), a feisty warrior princess who rebels against her parents’ plans for an arranged marriage. After consulting a witch for help, her family becomes cursed and the desperate Merida is forced to undo the spell herself before it is too late.

  • THE HELP – I only saw this film recently after hearing all the great things about it! It really is a goodun! I laughed and cried multiple times. If you havent seen it, you should check it out if only for the pie moment! If you have seen it, then indulge in it again!

SKY MOVIES COMEDY @ 10pm

  • GET HIM TO THE GREEK – Not to be so crass but i almost pissed myself laughing! Russell Brand is on top form with this one. I wasnt always a huge fan of Brand but this definitely put him back in my good books. Jonah Hill and P. Diddy act as great supporting cast

  • CONAN THE BARBARIAN – The original Conan with Mr Schwarzenegger himself getting his barbaric on! I know that doesnt make sense but then neither does this film really so get with the flow and watch it! lol
