There’s something for everyone at Cronulla Cinemas this school holidays – comedy, drama and some terrific flicks for the kiddies.
The Lego Movie is tipped to become the biggest box office success of all time for an animated movie – probably deservedly so, but we purists have Toy Story on a pedestal. As with Toy Story, adults will love The Lego Movie but to eliminate the embarrassment factor, they may want to borrow a child to accompany them.
Mr Peabody & Sherman will undoubtedly come in second in the kiddie pecking order but it has lots of humour and adventure and also enough to keep the grown-ups amused. Both are rated PG because of (fairly tame) animated violence.
For those wanting a bit of Biblical action this Easter, Noah (M) is pretty amazing for the acting and special effects. The other dramas pulling crowds include Best Picture Oscar winner, 12 Years a Slave (MA15+); Best Actor & Supporting Actor, the Dallas Buyers Club (MA15+) and George Clooney’s Monuments Men (M). The true story, Tracks, is also rewarding (M). For action fans, Captain America: The Winter Soldier (M) has plenty to offer with a gripping story and lots of live ‘special effects’.
The kids will get a kick out of the Muppets Most Wanted movie (G) - Ricky Gervais is there as the villain to keep the adults happy, The Grand Budapest Hotel (M), directed by Wes Anderson, looks amazing in the trailer, The Amazing Spider-Man will thrill the comic-action fans, Divergent appears to be a classy action-thriller with a hint of Hunger Games and The Other Woman looks like an interesting rom-com with a twist.
