So you cbf leaving your house this weekend? It’s ok I got you covered!

Below are some refreshing movies to watch if you’re over life/Netflix/have no $$ etc




Let’s start with “In a World” – Written and Directed by Lake Bell

Based on the lives of professional voice over artists… Lake Bell plays the awkward voice coach “Carol”, whose dad is a famous voice over artist, who thinks that the voice over industry has no room for females. #rude

So when Carol suddenly scores a sweet gig, she has all the other voice over ppl freaking the F out about who the hell she is!!!?  + why she’s getting all “their” jobs?

Featuring cast: Michaela Watkins, Demetri Martin,Rob CorddryLake BellFred MelamedKen Marino,Alexandra HoldenStephanie Allynne.





Celeste and Jesse Forever

Written by Rashida JonesWill McCormack, Directed by Lee Toland Krieger

The movie follows the divorced BFFS Celeste and Jesse, trying to figure out their lives post breakup.

Whilst Jesse -“Samberg” is sorting out his life and moving on very quickly #adult. Celeste – “Jones” is gradually losing the plot #normal. This movie truly shows how differently people deal with breakups. Keep in mind this movie is also very funny.

Featuring cast: Rashida JonesAndy SambergAri GraynorElijah WoodEric Christian OlsenWill McCormackEmma RobertsChris MessinaRebecca Dayan.

P.S The Soundtrack rules.





Drop Dead Gorgeous

Written by Lona Williams and Directed by Michael Patrick Jann

This movie is based around a Beauty Pageant in the fictional town of “Mount Rose” shot in a mockumentary form.

It follows main contestant Amber Atkins – “Dunst”, who lives in a trailer park with her mother “Barkin” and works in the towns morgue.

Kirstie Alley plays the “PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN” Ringleader of the Pageant and her daughter Becky- “Richards” is entering for the first time aka religious rich bitch who loves guns.

Anyways, everything starts to hit the fan after a few of the contestants mysteriously die and it just keeps on getting better!

P.S Keep an eye out for young Amy Adams and Brittany Murphy *RIP*.

Also shout out to Allison Janney aka the trailer park neighbour = highlight.

ALSO THE ACCENTS!

REVIEW OF THE WEEK

If you feel like some light hearted funny comedic drama this is a good film to start with.

Probably the most laughs I’ve heard during a Noah Baumbach film EVER. This film is funny. Like laugh out loud. I would take my mum to this film and that is saying a lot because she only really likes weird drama’s and things with Colin Firth.

Lets Start with the Cast:

Ben Stiller plays the ageing documentarian who has been working on what sounds like the most boring documentary I’ve ever heard of for over 10 years. Also look at him wearing a fedora…

ben s



Naomi Watts: All I can say is please watch this clip of her dancing, that is all. Bless you Naomi.



Adam Driver: Possibly plays the same character in everything?? Still always very charismatic and a bit of cheeky little shit in this movie.

*Watch for his bad hair scenes #toomany*



Amanda Seyfried: Boring.



Dree Hemingway: Probs my fav character…even though her role is small she jumps around like a maniac and is very entertaining.



Maria Dizzi and Adam Horovitz (Beastie Boys) play the Baby CRAZY best friends of Stiller + Watts. They play what I feel like every new parent is like = insane, in love and sleep deprived.



Favourite scene: When they all visit a shaman’s house to drink hallucinogenic crap and vomit up their demons whilst getting extremely HIGH. = most people’s weekend

Overral not Baumbach’s best film… the plot does get a bit lost at a few points, but still worth a watch.

3/5
