Toy Story 3
2 of 2
Described by The Guardian as the film most likely to make grown men cry, Toy Story 3 is a rare beast: a third installment that’s really good. Written by Michael Arndt (who won an Oscar for Little Miss Sunshine) and featuring the familiar voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack, this is the story about the end of childhood as Woody and the gang try to deal with change. Boys: take your hankies.
It’s an interesting premise: In Sunshine Cleaning, Amy Adams and Emily Blunt play hard-up sisters who scrub down crime scenes for a living - someone has to I suppose. It’s a rather schmaltzy indie but there are strong performances from the leads. Worth a go.
Pesadilla En Elm Street (El Origen) (Nightmare on Elm Street): The jury’s out on whether this remake of Wes Craven’s 1984 block-buster is as dull as ditchwater or frighteningly cool. The story is the same. A group of teenagers in Ohio who all have nightmares about a horribly burned man with knives for fingers but when they are murdered in their dreams, they also die in real life. To survive, they have to stay awake. Critics suggest it’s not nearly as scary as the original.
