The story of medical school dropout Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe), who’s been repeatedly burned by bad relationships. So while everyone around him, including his roommate Allan (Adam Driver) seems to be finding the perfect partner, Wallace decides to put his love life on hold. It is then that he meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan) an animator who lives with her long term boyfriend Ben. Wallace and Chantry form an instant connection, striking up a close friendship. Still, there is no denying the chemistry between them, leading the pair to wonder, what if the love of your life is actually your best friend?
A Rom-Com full of charm and humour, this is bound to be a hit with chick flick lovers out there. Natural chemistry oozes from the main characters. Don’t be fooled with the rom-com title though as this isn’t your normal stale, stomach churning drivel. It’s pretty smart, not a great script but it has a pretty big heart.

DELIVER US FROM EVIL
New York police Officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest, schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city.
Here we have yet another horror that lacks on any form of originality. Considering this story takes its inspiration from “true events” it couldn’t be any more farfetched. Yes it has all the right dark and sinister settings you would expect from a horror but it’s just what you would expect from an industry who just haven’t got a clue how to deliver a spine tingling, creepy, “jump out of your seat” classic horror story anymore.

Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) has just one job to do, deliver a briefcase to Mr Jang, but she soon finds herself embroiled in a deal which see’s her captured and turned into a drugs mule for a new and most powerful synthetic drug. With the drug placed in her body and already starting to leak her body takes on some remarkable changes, unlocking her minds full potential she turns into a hard-hearted warrior intent on revenge.
Coming from the acclaimed French Director Luc Besson it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion it’s going to be a blinder. Anyone who is familiar with my work will know I am not a fan of Scarlett Johansson so when I see her getting a good kicking the film is a winner in my eyes. It may be a bit silly in its storyline but it’s nothing but entertaining. It pains me to say Johansson pulls of this role so effortlessly making it a fairly decent watch.
