DIRTY GRANDPA

A new low for unfunny American frat boy “comedies”. Tasteless, tactless and just plain bad. De Niro needs a new agent.  _____________________________ Release date: January 28, 2016 (United Kingdom) Director: Dan Mazer Screenplay: John Phillips Music composed by: Michael Andrews Producers: Barry Josephson, Bill Block, Michael Simkin, Jason Barrett

ARGO

An incredible ‘true story’ given just the right amount of Hollywood treatment. Affleck brings authenticity, tension & plenty of facial hair.  _____________________________ Release date: November 7, 2012 (United Kingdom) Director: Ben Affleck Story by: Tony Mendez, Joshuah Bearman Producers: Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Grant Heslov Awards: Academy Award for Best Picture

HUGO

A beautifully shot adventure full of chases, clocks & cogs. But the story, and audience, are secondary to an impassioned history lesson.  _____________________________ Release date: December 2, 2011 (United Kingdom) Director: Martin Scorsese Story by: Brian Selznick Cinematography: Robert Richardson Awards: Academy Award for Best Cinematography, more

MYSTIC RIVER

One of Clint’s best due to a heart-wrenching story and a stellar cast. Bacon, Robbins and Morphius are great but Penn’s so good it’s scary.  _____________________________ Initial release: October 3, 2003 (USA) Director: Clint Eastwood Awards: Academy Award for Best Actor, more Producers: Clint Eastwood, Robert Lorenz, Judie G. Hoyt Production companies: Malpaso Productions, Village Roadshow Pictures
