NATCHA ON FILM — This week’s new movies are “11-12-13”, a horror-comedy that looks into the lives of three different people involved in the same car accident, while My Big Fat Greek Wedding finally gets a sequel. My pick for the must-see film is “10 Cloverfield Lane”, which is a thriller about a woman who wakes up in an underground bunker following a car accident.
The movie “11-12-13” is a Thai horror-comedy that tells three different stories of people involved in the same car crash. The first story is about an ex-girlfriend who comes back to haunt her boyfriend. The second story revolves around a group of friends who live together and attend the same university, but one of the friends changes after the crash. The last story is from the perspective of a girl who is tricked by her friend to travel to Chiang Mai for Songkran.
10 Cloverfield Lane
Although this film isn’t a direct sequel to “Cloverfield”, fans should be excited that the film is considered to be a “blood relative” of the original.
The film “10 Cloverfield Lane” is a thriller about a woman who wakes up after a horrible car crash inside an underground bunker. Unsurprisingly, she is confused about her whereabouts and the only information she has is that she can’t leave the bunker because it isn’t safe outside. After a while the woman tries to escape, and for those who have seen “Cloverfield”, you know it doesn’t end well when you go outside.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
Anyone else feel like this is a franchise that doesn’t really need to be revived again since it’s been like 14 years since the first one came out? (I’m looking at you too Zoolander 2.)
“My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” takes place many years after the first movie and Toula’s daughter is now all grown up. When the daughter graduates from high school and applies for colleges, her parents start to have marital issues. Coincidentally, Toula’s parents discover that they were never really married in the first place and decide they are going to have another big fat greek wedding. The wedding is the final straw that will either bring the family together or break them up.
The film is your average romantic comedy with a Greek twist.
All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records
Some people claim that downloading music will inevitably result in the end of the record industry — that wasn’t the case for Tower Records.
“All Things Must Pass” is a documentary about Tower Records. Established in 1960, the company started in a small town before eventually making USD1 billion in 1999. However, Tower Records filed for bankruptcy in 2006. Everyone thinks the company failed because of the rise of piracy but that doesn’t fully explain the story. The documentary looks into the rise and popularity of Tower Records, its tragic fall, and the legacy that was created by Russ Solomon.
This is a documentary music fans will enjoy for its look behind the scenes at Tower Records.
