There was a time when I would see Tom Hanks’ name attached to a film and get excited – it almost always guaranteed a fun, or great, or even both, film (remember Big, The Burbs, Philadelphia, Toy Story). But lately there hasn’t been much to get excited about (Larry Crowne was very disappointing). That, hopefully, is all about to change though as I’ve just seen the trailer for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (he is joined by Sandra Bullock, Thomas Horn, Viola Davis, and John Goodman).
The trailer gave me goosebumps and even had me shed a tear. I am not going to spoil it for you by telling you what it’s all about, I’m going to let the trailer speak for itself.
I can’t wait to see this!
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close opens in Ireland on 17 February
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings.
Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions.
