NOW SHOWING: Rabbit Hole, The Mechanic, No Strings Attached and Hop

RABBIT HOLE
13DL,  91 min
Watch Movie Trailer

A solid 7! While apparently bleak, a compelling script, restrained direction and excellent performances help smooth over the rough edges of this domestic family portrait stage adaptation. Kidman delivers a powerhouse performance with fine support from Aaron Eckhart and Dianne Wiest. Like: Reservation Road
THE MECHANIC
16LNSV, 93 min
Watch Movie Trailer

A satisfactory 6! Solid performances from Jason Statham and Ben Foster are undercut by a stylish, yet mind-numbingly violent and derivative action-thriller remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson revenge classic. Like: The Mechanic (1972)

NO STRINGS ATTACHED
16DLS, 108 min
Watch Movie Trailer

A flat 5! Despite a handsome co-lead couple, the superficiality of their "friends with benefits" relationship doesn't translate well into comedy and romance, cornerstones of the genre, leaving it likable yet mild under the direction of Reitman. Like: Love and Other Drugs
HOP
A, 90 min
Watch Movie Trailer

A flimsy 4! The Easter Bunny gets a big screen feature film under the watchful eye of live-action/animated "expert" Tim Hill. A fascinating cast is laid to waste no thanks to a pithy script and a tame, formulaic and thin "Easter" story. Like: Alvin and the Chipmunks
 
NEW RENTALS: Jackass 3, The American, Open Season 3 and Arctic Blast

JACKASS 3 (2010)
Watch Movie Trailer
Director: Jeff Tremaine
Starring: Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam Margera
Genre: Documentary, Action, Comedy
Age Restriction: 16LNV


Jackass... love it or hate it, it's the comedy, stunts and gross out factor that draws the crowds of fascinated bystanders. These guys aren't actors, they're modern day clowns - taking the seemingly ordinary and twisting it into something creative, dangerous and disgusting with their trademark devil may care attitude. It's definitely not for the faint-hearted... bodily fluids, dildos, toilets and ridiculous stunts make it difficult to watch and difficult to stop watching. It's an hour-and-a-half of what you've come to expect... and for goodness sake, don't try this at home.

NOW SHOWING: Never Let Me Go, I Am Number Four, Gnomeo & Juliet, Paradise Stop and Hall Pass

NEVER LET ME GO
16LNSV, 111 min
Watch Movie Trailer

A solid 7! Solid performances, fascinating science-fiction drama and beautiful cinematography make this haunting film compelling as an idyllic English boarding school's dark agenda is unveiled. Like: The Village, Gattaca
I AM NUMBER FOUR
13MV, 108 min
Watch Movie Trailer

A satisfactory 6! This action-packed science fiction adventure has all the right ingredients for a fun time at the movies. A popcorn flick with a good-looking cast of up-and-coming actors, super special effects and great pacing. Like: Smallville, Ben 10

GNOMEO & JULIET [3D]
PGV, 82 min
Watch Movie Trailer

A satisfactory 6! This adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Romeo & Juliet' is fun, sweet and imaginative. British sentiment, Elton John hits, light peril and sharp animation make it worthwhile, but apart from an extraordinary voice cast, it's nothing special. Like: A Bug's Life
PARADISE STOP
10V, 91 min
Watch Movie Trailer

A satisfactory 6! A great premise, a multi-lingual explosion of culture and great chemistry between the co-leads drive this South African action-comedy from the same team that brought us White Wedding. Like: White Wedding
HALL PASS
16LNS, 105 min
Watch Movie Trailer

A flat 5! The Farrelly brothers never fail to surprise with their brand of shock humour in this story about two husbands that get a week to do whatever they please. While funny in parts, this mix of middle-aged romance and shock jock humour is jarring. Like: The Heartbreak Kid

NEW RENTALS: Red, In The Electric Mist and Stone


RED (2010)
Watch Movie Trailer
Director: Robert Schwentke

Starring: Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren
Genre: Action, Comedy, Crime
Age Restriction: 13LV


RED is Retired, Extremely Dangerous. The fine cast may be feeling their age, but rally under Bruce Willis in an A-Team inspired action-comedy with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Willis takes care of the action, while the top class supporting cast make uncharacteristic action movie appearances in this light, entertaining blockbuster. It uses the charm of its cast and a brand of subtle humour to wage a war in a tea cup, while Malkovich steals the show with a rare comedic turn, making a worthy substitute for Howling Mad Murdock.
