What’s Worth Watching – May 2014


We reviewed a dozen films in April and there were some real treats in there (thanks Mia!) but something tells me that May will be even better with a hefty 38 films going on general and limited release in Ireland. As always we’ve noted where possible whether a film is only opening in one cinema.

Personally I’ve always found it quite amusing this time of year as the film world converges on Cannes for the world’s premier film festival, while back at home people in cinemas don’t care about any Palme d’Or news and will be much more content trudging in to see something like Godzilla. It’s that challenge in finding the gems amongst the big ballsy blockbuster and smarter fare that makes being a film fan such a laugh.

We’ve already talked at length about our excitement for Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank (May 9th) in our latest podcast so it would be repetitive to talk any more about it. X-Men and Postman Pat were the other picks in our latest podcast, click here to listen/subscribe.
