For Families & Children
For me, Pixar haven’t done a better film than Inside Out. It’s a glorious celebration of imagination and adventure that works perfectly for adults and children making it an ideal film to watch as a family. It tells the story of a young girl who moves to a new home with her family and, through the emotions she feels – personified by Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger – we learn how the disruption in her life affects her. It’s fun, educative and entertaining. It’s also arguably Pixar’s best ever film. If you and your kids like Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Ratatouille, then Inside Out is a film for you.
For Fans Of Classic Movies
The Italian Job
The Italian Job is a classic caper movie that will thrill fans of car chase movies and comedy-heist movies like Ocean’s 11. The escape sequence involving the Mini Coopers is thrilling, limitlessly entertaining and very British. Michael Caine is also brilliant in the film.
The Truman Show
Jim Carrey’s career may have taken a nosedive from the heights of his 1990s prowess when he released films like Liar Liar, Ace Ventura and Dumb and Dumber but tracking back to 1998 with a watch of The Truman Show reminds us what a talented actor he was (and still is). This part comedy-satire, part science-fiction drama is a fascinating, ahead-of-its-time character-driven film about a man (Carrey) who continues to live his life unbeknownst that the entire thing is being filmed for television. Everyone in his life, including his wife, are actors, while the world he believes is real is actually a giant film set.
For Those Wanting A Thoughtful Drama
The White Ribbon
An affecting film from controversial filmmaker Michael Haneke who is perhaps best known for making Funny Games in both German and English (courtesy of its American remake) as well as the multi-award-winning Amour, The White Ribbon is a German-language film set prior to the first world war and depicts themes of evil and the origins of hate and terror.
A multi-stranded drama for those who want a thought-provoking film. This compelling, moving and hard-hitting film from the director of the critically acclaimed, Oscar-winning films Birdman and The Revenant, stars a diverse, international cast which includes Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, and tackles a number of themes across continents and languages.
For Those Wanting A Laugh
An adult comedy from The 40-Year-Old Virgin director Judd Apatow, Knocked Up stars the very funny Seth Rogen who finds he’s got the attractive Katherine Heigl pregnant after a one-night stand. The film humorously follows the repercussions.
It doesn’t get the best reviews but I had a lot of fun with Daddy’s Home. It’s a great vehicle for both its stars – Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg – who play the mild-mannered stepfather and tough, no-nonsense biological father respectively of a young girl and each vie for her affections with very different methods. It’s fun, funny and heartwarming.
For Thought-Provoking Sci-Fi Fans
Children Of Men
This incredible science-fiction drama stars Clive Owen (in probably his best role) as a civil servant in 2027 who helps a refugee escape a chaotic future where the UK is governed by an oppressive political leadership. The film, from director Alfonso Cuaron who made the impressive Gravity, boasts a brilliant sense of mystery as its twisty plot progresses. If you like dystopian, near-future films then Children of Men is a bleak but fascinating option.
For Action Movies Fans
James Bond fans as well as action cinema fans will love SPECTRE, Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as the eponymous British secret agent who this time has to tackle an old enemy alongside the recognisable car chases, stunts and love interests.
A very interesting action-thriller starring a young Saoirse Ronan as a child-assassin who goes on the run from government agents wanting to interrogate the girl for her former CIA agent father’s secrets. A violent, captivating and unique film.
