Movies I Can't Wait to See

PARIS, JE T'AIME: "Eighteen of the most acclaimed international directors and a star studded cast come together to pay a cinematic homage to Paris, the city of love."

PIERREPOINT - THE LAST HANGMAN: "A large, somewhat awkward man of simple manners, Albert Pierrepoint is like just any other decent, working-class fellow when we first encounter him. Then he goes for an interview at the local prison to become a hangman where he rises quickly through the ranks of executioners and becomes famous for the speed of his work."

ONCE: "A modern day musical set on the streets of Dublin. It tells the story of a busker and an immigrant during an eventful week as they write, rehearse and record songs that reveal their unique love story." (Read Billy's thoughts here.)

Paris je t'aime is like what Liquid Monkey tried to do with the writing exercises on Triggerstreet. I think it's a wonderful idea and this is on my (very long) list.

Timothy Spall is an awesome actor. He's underused as Wormtail in the Harry Potter movies, so seeing him in Pierrepoint will be a real treat. Now we know why executioners in Paris and London wore black hoods for their work.

I LOVE Timothy Spall! He's been in a heck of a lot of films, and he has quite a range. In fact, you see a range of emotions to Pierrepoint just in that trailer. That really lights my fire. I can't wait to see it.
