Weekend Movies If Not Going to VIFF

With the festival pass I got, I’ve been going to movies all I can. Since I’m not sure if I’m going to conferences or not, here are some upcoming alternatives:

The Martian If you’re ever on Mars, be careful of raging storms. Starring Matt Damon as Mark Watney, an astronaut who is abandoned by his space crew on Mars after, of course, a raging storm. The crew presumes Watney is dead and leaves him on the planet, only to realize he’s still alive so they must go back to save him. To make matters more difficult, Mars is a hostile planet. Now this one could be interesting. Based on a best-selling novel and directed by Ridley Scott,  one of my personal favourite directors. Great for the science fiction fan, I just hope he doesn’t make it as confusing as Prometheus.

Sicario Emily Blunt is an FBI agent who learns what it’s like to be in the dangerous land that serves as the border between Mexico and the United States. Her task is to take out a Mexican cartel boss as Government force task members enlist in the dangerous world of transporting international drugs. A dramatic thriller that is sure to be enjoyed by anyone into action, especially those who would like to see how dangerous the border between two countries can be sometimes.

The Walk – Walking on another planet or a really long distance is considered a newsworthy accomplishment by today’s standards. But what if someone were to walk between the two towers of the World Trade Center? Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the daring Philippe Petit, who with the help of his international friends, works hard to take what is maybe the craziest walk of all time. Another dramatic thriller sure to keep you on your seat.

Etiquette for Mistresses Why yes, it is based on a book. This movie talks about the secret rules of mistresses and how they behave to the world in general. Four wealthy women teach their new friend Ina (Kim Chiu) these basics and how to keep them confidential. The women consist of Chloe (Claudine Barretto), Stella (Iza Calzado), Charley (Cheena Crab), and Georgia (Kris Aquino). Screenings seem a bit limited and movie seems to be a drama for women to enjoy.
