Exclaim! Rides the Rocket with The Taking of Pelham 123, Everlasting Moments and Imagine That
Published Jun 12, 2009It's Friday, once again, and that means there are new movies to occupy your weekend. But before you head out to the theatre, check out some reviews first to help you decide which films you should see, and here at Exclaim! we have your new movie review needs covered.
Our recommendation for this week's film list is The Taking of Pelham 123, directed by Tony Scott. The film is a remake of the 1974 Joseph Sargent flick of the same title and features John Travolta back in action as a subway-riding terrorist.
Also up for your viewing pleasure this week is the Jan Troell directed Everlasting Moments. The film was the 2008 official Swedish submission for the Best Foreign Language film at the Academy Awards and takes on such themes as female suffrage, alcoholism, social change in wartime and finding a sense of self through artistic expression.
As well, we have reviews of the family comedy Imagine That, featuring Eddie Murphy, the Oscar-winner for best foreign film Departures (Okuribito), and tale of impending parental ennui Away We Go.
