The movie guide continues!

Click here for my recommendations for movies being released in January, February and March (based on UK release dates).

For my recommendations for movies released in April, May and June read on...



The Sacrament (2013)
Director: Ti West
Stars: Amy Seimetz, Joe Swanberg, AJ Bowen, Kate Lyn Sheil
UK Release Date: ??/04/14

Two journalists set out to document their friend's search to find his missing sister.

Ti West's films "House of the Devil" and "The Innkeepers" were both great films (particularly the latter). I can't wait to see his latest project.

Godzilla (2014)
Director: Gareth Edwards
Stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe
UK Release Date: 16/05/14

A giant radioactive monster called Godzilla appears to wreak destruction on mankind.

I loved Gareth Edwards' debut movie "Monsters". That being said, there wasn't much monster destruction action in "Monsters". In fact, there were very few moments where the monsters were even visible. We mostly saw the aftermath of the monsters' destruction. That being said, Gareth Edwards has a much bigger budget this time around and a 'less is more' attitude may be just what this movie needs. Though Godzilla seems to be obscured by the smoke from his own destruction this time around, rather than disappearing magically into the subway without trace (as happened in the Rolan Emmerich movie from the late 90s). There's a fantastic cast on board here and I can't wait!

22 Jump Street (2014)
Director: Phil Lord, Chris Miller
Stars: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ice Cube, Brad Pitt
UK Release Date: 06/06/14

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt and Jenko when they go deep undercover at a local college.

I guess I ought to pick at least one movie for every month where there are any options at all, so while I didn't give the previous movie in this series "21 Jump Street" an A, it was very enjoyable and it was the amazing Phil Lord and Chris Miller (of "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs") responsible. They are back for this sequel too, so while I highly doubt I'll actually see this in the cinema, I certainly wouldn't resent the suggestion and I'll definitely be checking this out at some point, even if it's more likely to be on DVD.
