What did you think of this film?

Based upon recently declassified files of the British War Department and inspired by true events, THE MINISTRY OF UNGENTLEMANLY WARFARE is an action-comedy that tells the story of the first-ever special forces organization formed during WWII by UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a small group of military officials including author Ian Fleming. The top-secret combat unit, composed of a motley crew of rogues and mavericks, goes on a daring mission against the Nazis using entirely unconventional and utterly “ungentlemanly” fighting techniques. Ultimately their audacious approach changed the course of the war and laid the foundation for the British SAS and modern Black Ops warfare.

Just in time for the holidays comes a timely take on a cult horror classic as a campus killer comes to face a formidable group of friends in sisterhood.

Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. But as Riley Stone (Imogen Poots, Green Room) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters—athlete Marty (Lily Donoghue, The CW’s Jane the Virgin), rebel Kris (Aleyse Shannon, The CW’s Charmed), and foodie Jesse (Brittany O’Grady, Fox’s Star)—prepare to deck the halls with a series of seasonal parties, a black-masked stalker begins killing sorority women one by one.

As the body count rises, Riley and her squad start to question whether they can trust any man, including Marty’s beta-male boyfriend, Nate (Simon Mead, Same But Different: A True New Zealand Love Story), Riley’s new crush Landon (Caleb Eberhardt, Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle) or even esteemed classics instructor Professor Gelson (Cary Elwes).

Whoever the killer is, he’s about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t about to be anybody’s victims.

Starring: Nick Robinson, Common and Cary Elwes
Release Date: 5/6/2016

Charlie (Nick Robinson) is a smart, privileged eighteen-year-old with a mile-wide reckless streak. That personality cocktail lands him in a Utah rehab ranch from which he promptly escapes, assisted by his best friend, Adam (Toronto’s Devon Bostick). Charlie’s father (Princess Bride star Cary Elwes) is running for governor and can’t afford to have a volatile son with a taste for expensive drugs threatening to derail his campaign. And so it’s off to a new rehab, run by Travis (Common), who stands a better chance of gaining Charlie’s trust. But Charlie also meets Eva (Morgan Saylor) at the rehab, and she’s exactly the kind of trouble Charlie likes — as clever, verbal, and messed up as he is. They both know that relationships are forbidden among residents, but they’re headed for love, no matter what the cost.

Elvis & Nixon (2016)

ElvisAndNixonPoster

Title: Elvis & Nixon
Rating: R
Directed by: Liza Johnson
Written by: Joey Sagal, Hanala Sagal and Cary Elwes
Starring: Michael Shannon, Kevin Spacey, Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Knoxville and Colin Hanks
Release Date: 4/22/2016
Running Time: 86 minutes

Official Site
IMDb

In 1970, Elvis Presley (Michael Shannon) flies to Washington D.C. with the goal of convincing President Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey) to deputize him as a federal agent-at-large. Showing up unannounced at the Northwest Gate of the White House with his buddy Jerry Schilling (Alex Pettyfer), Presley persuades awe-struck guards to hand deliver a letter to Nixon requesting a secret meeting. White House staffers Egil “Bud” Krogh (Colin Hanks) and Dwight Chapin (Evan Peters) tell the president that a sit-down with Elvis during an election year could generate good PR, but Nixon is in no mood to humor the legendary rocker.

Undeterred, Jerry and Elvis’ sidekick Sonny (Johnny Knoxville) re-group with Krogh and Chapin to hatch a deal: Elvis will sign an autograph for Nixon’s daughter Julie in exchange for face time with the president. Prior to making his grand entrance, Presley is instructed in a litany of White House protocols, which he quickly disregards. To Nixon’s surprise and the astonishment of his nervous aides, the pair bond over their shared contempt of counterculture.

Based on an actual encounter that took place on December 21, 1970, Elvis & Nixon hilariously re-imagines the unlikely meeting between rocker and politician as dramatized by two of America’s finest actors.
