Film round-up: 15/12/2014 – 21/12/2014


Just a few new releases on this busy run up to Christmas. Plenty for those in need of a laugh this week with the dim witted duo of Dum And Dumber returning for an even more ridiculous adventure while the great Robin Williams makes a final appearance in Night at the Museum.

Dumb And Dumber To, 20 years since their first adventure, Harry Dunn and his even dimmer friend Lloyd set off on a road trip to find Harry’s newly discovered daughter. Starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, this hilariously stupid comedy will have you in pools of laughter.

This week sees the rerelease of classic Broadway musical Guys And Dolls, original filmic release date 1955. A New York gambler, Marlon Brando, is challenged to take a cold female missionary, played by Jean Simmons, to Havana with a hidden motive to finance a crap game.

Based on a true story, Kon-Tiki follows the voyage of a Norwegian anthropologist and adventurer across the Pacific, from Peru to Polynesia. The six men, accompanied only by themselves and a parrot with no technology, face a battle against the elements on their terrifying 4,300 mile journey in a wooden raft named Kon Tiki.

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is the third instalment of the Night at the Museum series, once again starring the likes of Ben Stiller, Robin Williams and Owen Wilson. With the magic that brings the museum to life at night running out, Larry must span the globe, travelling to the British Museum, in order to save the magic of New York City’s American Museum of Natural History. The film brings together all of our favourite characters from the previous films, along with some new ones along the way, including a very British Sir Lancelot and live dinosaur skeletons.

P.K. is an Indian comedy drama directed by Rajkuma Hirani. It is a story of childlike curiosity that unfolds when the protagonist, known by his initials P.K., starts asking questions that no one else has asked before. The endearing story becomes one of alternative outlooks on life, romance, and letting go.
