Kailey is all about the cute animals this week – penguins, lions, tigers and a few cute humans (Happy Feet Two and We Bought a Zoo); Dan gets vertigo with Tower Heist; Simon will tell us about another Best Actress Oscar contender – Glenn Close in Albert Nobbs. Also featuring The First Beautiful Thing and Viva Riva!
In this week’s episode: The Muppets, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Melancholia, The Iron Lady, Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chip-wrecked and The Adventures of Tintin.
Kailey has already given up on Christmas already and moved on to New Year’s Eve; Simon goes back to school with The First Grader; and I look at cinematica presentations of evangelical Christianity – Kevin Smith’s Red State and Alex Kendrick’s faith-based Courageous and we preview a sweet little film from Italy by interviewing the writer and director of The Salt of Life – Gianni Di Gregorio.
Last night Kailey, Simon and I reviewed Arthur Christmas, Immortals, Tomboy and Rest for the Wicked. We had able assistance from NZ actor John Leigh (Stickmen, We’re Here to Help, The Two Towers). It was fun.
