At The Light we really love movies, and each month members of staff will hand pick
movies that we are especially excited about! They will be picked by real life humans
with varying tastes and of dispositions, and will even include samples of their
movie tastes (not necessarily our all time favourites!) to give you an idea of
what they’re into!
- Jane –
Events Oracle (Taste Sampler: 21 Grams,
The Woodsman, Pitch Perfect)
– Irrational Man: Every Woody Allen film
has the potential to be the next great Woody Allen film. I thought Blue Jasmine
was an exceptional film with thanks to the superb Cate Blanchett. Allen looks
set to continue his superb run of casting his female roles with the incredible
Emma Stone and the mesmerising Parker Posey starring alongside Joaquin Phoenix
in the dark comedy, murder mystery. And who doesn’t love a dark comedy/murder
- Andy - Head
Projectionist & trouble-shooter extraordinaire (Pulp Fiction, Usual Suspects,
– The Visit: M. Night came storming out of
the gate with a couple of my favourites, The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. After
disappointing with his follow-ups (we all know he’s had a couple of turkeys!) I
have high hopes for The Visit, especially after seeing the trailer reaction
video on YouTube with the audience looking petrified!
- Craig - Marketing
& Social Media Ninja (Chinatown, Lost
in Translation, Blade Runner)
- Me and Earl and The Dying Girl: Sundance and TIFF are my go-to festivals for the years upcoming releases with many of my favourite films doing well and making their name at these festivals in the past. So seeing that Me and Earl and the Dying Girl swept up at this years Sundance and includes a couple of my favourite actors, Nick Offerman (Parks and Rec) and Molly Shannon(SNL alumni) has me pretty psyched to see this one. The trailers have also got me looking forward to seeing Greg and Earl's homemade scenes from classic movies.
- Lauren –
Marketing Miracle Worker (Mrs Doubtfire,
– Rocky Horror Picture Show: I love a good
musical and I cannot wait to see the live screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I’ve seen the film and loved every
minute and I’ve heard and read reviews that say that the live production is
even more fun, a whole lot stranger and full of fun and frolics. I also hear
that they have new additions to the cast, including; Stephen Fry, Emma Bunton and Mel Giedroyc. Count me in!
