Marlow FM What's on at the Weekend?

You can catch me on the radio at Marlow FM tonight sometime after 5.20 pm if you live in the Marlow area or listen online by going to the Marlow FM website. I have pre-recorded a five minute segment which will be aired right in the middle of rush hour so hopefully all the listeners in their cars on the way home will know about the latest film releases hitting cinemas this weekend.



This week I'm talking about the following:


21 and Over

When Straight-A college student Jeff Chang's two best friends take him out for his 21st birthday on the night before an important medical school interview, what was supposed to be a quick beer becomes a night of humiliation, over indulgence and utter debauchery. It's full of racial stereotypes, written by the writers of The Hangover and rated 15 by the BBFC. It's occasionally quite funny in a silly, immature way but also has some moments of sweetness. My full 21 & Over review is here.

All Stars

 All Stars is about a cheeky schoolkid who throws a talent contest to save his local youth club. It's got Mark Heap from Big Train and Spaced so must have some funny moments! I'm sure it will entertain younger kids but it looks a bit too squeaky clean for teens.

Chimpanzee

Chimpanzee is about the life of an orphaned Chimp on the Ivory Coast and narrated by Buzz Lightyear himself!It's from Disney so you can expect lovely cutesy stuff but tainted by a layer of darkness.

 
Dead Man Down

Starring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace as two strangers who are irresistibly drawn to one another by a mutual desire for revenge, this is the English language debut from Neils Arden Oplev, the guy who gave us The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

What will you be watching this weekend?
