A Good Week…in music and film

leave a comment »

Last week (January 9-15) turned out to be pretty bloody amazing if you like post hardcore reunions, the eccentric films of Wes Anderson and rumours of your favourite band playing your favourite indoor, Butlins-based festival.

Here are a yet more reasons why 2012 is going to be so special.

‘Shut Up and Play The Hits’

With the trailer looking heartbreakingly wonderful, this documentary from the directors of Blur’s ‘No Distance Left To Run’ follows James Murphy in the 48 hours before and after the band’s last gig. Sure to be emotional, it’s bound to be a highlight of the forthcoming Sundance Film Festival.


Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom’

The ‘King of Quirk’ has returned! Seemingly heavily laden with Rushmore-style, if the trailer is anything to go by, this could be pretty special.


At The Drive-In

What? Why is everyone on Twitter retweeting a message from At The Drive-In? What? They have reformed? Cue much squealing from me all of Monday night and contemplating whether I should re-stitch my ATD-I patch back on some jeans.



On Tuesday morning: why is everyone talking about Refused? Oh, wait a minute! The squealing then continues…


The National at ATP?

With the rumour mill on overdrive over who will have the honour of the curator of the ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ bestowed upon them this year, it appears that it could be my favourite band of the last five years, The National. Although maybe not traditional ‘Nightmare’ material, the band wowed crowds when they appeared at the Explosions In The Sky curated event back in 2008 and will undoubtedly do so again.

Upcoming: Young Adult and The Innkeepers

Young Adult

Directed by Jason Reitman (Thank You For Smoking, Juno, Up In The Air) and written by Diablo Cody (Juno, Jennifer’s Body) the characteristic Cody-penned patois drips from every inch of this trailer.

Not released February in the UK, the US gets to see Theron playing snarky sociopath Mavis Gray next month.


The Innkeepers

Directed by Ti West, whose previous credits include the heavily Argento-influenced ‘The House of The Devil’, by trailer alone this looks to be quite a good haunted house story. And, of course, EVERYONE loves a good ghost story.

Despite being heavily played on the film festival circuit this year, UK release dates are yet to be confirmed for this one.
