Now Showing This Week (29/10/10)

Watch Movie Trailer
Director: Christopher Morris

Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Kayvan Novak, Riz Ahmed
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Age Restriction: 16LPV

Monty Python & The Holy Grail showed how a low budget movie could become a cult classic and Four Lions takes a page from the explosive comedy of the Pythons in this controversial yet important farce about several Jihadists planning an act of terror in London. Great performances and the constant air of tragedy create tension and make for hilarity in this smart and almost poignant comedy drama. Full Movie Review...

Watch Movie Trailer
Director: Greg Berlanti
Starring: Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Josh Lucas
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Age Restriction: 13M

Everything about this movie is trying to make you not like it from the title, poster and contrived premise. Yet, the charming co-leads deliver the goods and make this so-called "chick flick" entertaining, heartwarming and full of fun as director, Greg Berlanti cleverly twists out of "romcom" formula at every turn.

Piranha 3D Movie PosterPIRANHA 3D (2010)
Watch Movie Trailer
Director: Alexandre Aja
Starring: Jerry O'Connell, Elisabeth Shue, Richard Dreyfuss
Genre: Comedy, Horror, Thriller
Age Restriction: 16LNV

Jaws, Girls Gone Wild and Joe's Apartment are three movies that come to mind when you watch Piranha. The horror comedy is purposefully over-the-top and cheesy, lampooning Girls Gone Wild with Jerry O'Connell and substituting gasps with laughs in its gore, breast and Spring break frenzy. Base yet entertaining if you can get past the blood and boobs. Full Movie Review...

Takers Movie PosterTAKERS (2010)
Watch Movie Trailer
Director: John Luessenhop
Starring: Idris Elba, Matt Dillon, Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
Age Restriction: 16LV

A phenomenal cast of actors are laid to waste in this dull, generic heist movie. Takers has style, but without giving you anyone to root for and dragging you through some lethargic dialogue, it's an exercise in patience rather than entertainment.
