What to watch this weekend
Allow me to break this week’s entry down into ‘if you…’ segments. More movies stuff should be written this way…
If you… still haven’t seen one of the best superhero movies ever
Joss Whedon cracked the formula for incorporating CGI and a ton of characters into the same monster-budget movie with Avengers Assemble. His solution? Laughs! Yes, it leans heavily on Robert Downey, to the point that you could call it ‘Iron Man and friends’. But who cares?! If you’re going to the multiplex with mates and you want to have fun, there’s really no other option. Unless…
If you’ve... already seen that great superhero movie
Go and see Cabin In The Woods! We can’t really tell you why you have to see it without ruining it somehow. But go and see it! Needless to say, it’s more than your usual yokels vs teenagers horror schtick. And hey! Joss Whedon produced it. So The Avengers won’t mind you skipping that second viewing.
If you... want to see something brand new
If staring at Zac Efron’s arms just seems right
There are wildly varying schools of thought on The Lucky One. Our own Lucy Mapstone certainly counts herself among those who can happily watch buffed up Zac walking around for two hours. She had to resist slapping a fourth star on this review. If you’re not in club zac and you enjoy mocking the predictability of Nicholas Sparks adaptations, skip it and check out Empire’s newest Nicholas Sparks flow chart. Genius.
If you’re a horse…
Go see Buck – the inspiring story of the real-life Horse Whisperer. Sadly, you already missed the screening.
MSN's Lorna Cooper talks to Marlon Wayans about his new film Haunted House, being part of such a talented family and dramatic roles vs comedy.
