Sexo en Nueva York 2 - Don Juans take note: the cinemas are going to be chock-a-block with single ladies this weekend as Carrie and the girls strut back onto the big screen in Sexo en Nueva York 2. Despite the hype, the reviews have generally been horrible. Decide for yourself if it’s up to scratch. Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon star.
Kick Ass. Listo para machacar – Matthew Vaughn’s black teen-superhero comedy was a surprise hit with both punters and critics. It´s perfect summer fodder. Grotesquely violent and hold-your-sides funny, the film centres around a teen comic fan who decides to turn himself into a superhero. He’s joined in his fight against crime by real superheroes Hit Girl (a purple wigged 11 year old who uses the C-word with liberal abandon) and Big Daddy, played by Nicholas Cage. It’s a good job they’re around as saving the world hurts like hell when you’ve got no super powers.
Mamut (Mammoth) – Passable offering from Sweden’s Lukas Moodysson, best known for Together. Starring Gael García Bernal and Michelle Williams, Mamut is the tale of a wealthy Internet-game designer (García Bernal), his hard-working wife and a life-changing business trip to Thailand.
La Última Canción – If your other half likes schmaltzy winsome coming of age dramas, they’re going to love this. Greg Kinnear plays a father trying to reconnect with his adolescent daughter (Miley Cyrus) through the one thing they have in common: music. Based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks and with a generous splash of teen romance, you’d be well advised to look busy this weekend.
The Good Heart - Paul Dano (Olive’s wayward brother in Little Miss Sunshine) plays a well-meaning homeless guy who tries but fails to commit suicide. In the hospital he means a vitiriolic old bar owner whose customer service skills make most of Barcelona’s landlords look like happy holiday reps. It’s all a tad predictable but there are worse ways to while away a couple of hours.
