Movies: Exodus: Gods & Kings (12A), Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death (15), Birdman (15) and War (DVD 18)

Exodus: Gods & Kings (12A) – what’s it about? The story of Moses…from the bible and freeing the Hebrews from Egypt.

This is pretty damn good – I love Ancient Egyptian stuff so it might have been more cool cuz of this…that said it’s kinda well done – and even though it’s like a bible story (I’m not religious at all) it was still a great blockbuster movie.

Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death (15) – what’s it about? Years on and it’s the war – a group of children and their teachers flee the city and end up living in the house (that’s in the previous movie)…and of course the ghosty is still there causing lots of spooks.

Yeah if you’ve seen the first one – this is exactly the same kind of thing – you know the same type of scares in that it’s jumpy and spooky and not gory. It didn’t really make me jump but there are a few scare bits that do that type of thing…if you like spooky-horror movies you’ll probably love this one.

Birdman (15) – what’s it about? Washed up actor sets his sights on the theatre and directs/writes/stars in a show – this is the story to the backstage of the show and his mental state.

Basically this is a movie taking the piss out of all the other action-superhero movies and basically says people don’t enjoy talk and drama anymore…which is probably true…it was basically two hours of talking and drama – its more of a fly on the wall of the backstage of a theatre production as the show goes live – including all the things that go wrong…it’s pretty dull and kinda depressing.

War (DVD 18) – what’s it about? A cops partner is killed and he tries to tackle the triads who he suspects killed him.

If I say Jason Statham and Jet Li that basically sums up what this movie will be like – and that’s exactly it – action – violence – gun fights – bad guys – and a bit of story chucked in. I love Jason Statham – I got a pressie of 4 of his films – get in thereeeeeeeeee!
