Rings Te third chapter in the


horror trilogy sees the return of the cursed video that channels (geddit) an evil, killer spirit through peoples TVs and into their hearts. In a bad way. Tis time, it’s after a new generation of kids. Presumably ones that haven’t seen the previous shit sequel, because all the good scares were used up in the first part. For fans of the series.

Fences Denzel Washington directs and stars in this highly acclaimed movie based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play of the same name. Fun fact: August Wilson, who wrote the play, also wrote the screenplay for this movie before he passed away in 2005. So, basically, someone’s getting an Oscar.

suited and booted killing machine, John Wick. Tis time, after an old friend is threatened by a ruthless ex-associate, John travels to Rome to face-off against the


Cure for Wellness Oscar winner Gore Verbinski

Te Girl On


Te Train Following in the same “Domestic Noir” tracks as Gone Girl, Te Girl On Te Train tells the tale of Rachel (Emily Blunt) an alcoholic divorcee whose life spirals even further out of control when she becomes caught up in a missing persons investigation. Te unreliable narrator is used to good effect here and the performances are all very solid, even if it is all a little predictable.


Jack Reacher:


Never Go Back Another Hollywood Tom (Cruise) sets out on another race against time to uncover the truth behind another conspiracy, this time to clear his name and unearth a secret from his past. Te script is misjudged and tacky and lacks the tongue in cheek fun of the first film, but it’s an enjoyable enough action flick with some half decent fight scenes if that’s your bag.


world’s deadliest assassins. Te clips of Bill and/or Ted training for this movie have been doing the rounds online for a while now, and fans of fast-paced gunplay are in for a treat.


>24/02


Howard and Tom Hanks manage to make Dan Brown’s bad book even worse with this turgid adaptation. Iconologist Robert Langdon (Hanks) wakes in a hospital with amnesia, and with the help of Doctor Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) sets out on a race against time to uncover the truth behind yet another conspiracy and prevent a virus from wiping out half of the world’s population.


Train To Busan After a virus breaks out


in South Korea, some passengers on a high- speed bullet train from Seoul to Busan fight the zombie horde and try to survive long enough to reach their destination. Full of hackneyed character archetypes and melodrama this could have been totally forgettable but it zips along at a breathtaking pace and has a genuinely creative originality that is lacking in so many films of this overdone genre.
