Here’s my weekly update and suggestions on the best movie entertainment this weekend.
There is only one place to start and that is with The Oscars this Sunday night. The highlight of the Movie calendar and this will surely be a memorable event with a truly great year for film in 2011.
It’s also a big weekend for Cinema releases,
Catch Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in Safe House. Reynolds plays a CIA operative tasked to protect Washington’s rogue agent when a CIA safe house in Cape Town is attacked.
Judi Dench and a cast of Britain’s finest star in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, A group of pensioners take the retirement Journey of a life time to India to a supposedly ‘newly restored’ hotel.
And there are still loads of great films on general release, here’s this week’s UK top Ten:
1 The Woman in Black
2 The Muppets (reviewed here)
3 Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (in 3D) (reviewed here)
4 The Vow
6 Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
7 The Descendants (reviewed here)
8 War Horse
9 Jack and Jill
10 Man on a Ledge
Warrior is released on Blu-ray and DVD if your viewing is going to take place from the armchair this weekend. Tom Hardy (coolest man on the planet right now!) stars as a mixed martial artist who is set on a collision course with his brother when he enters a fight tournament.
Ryan Gosling and George Clooney star in The Ides of March, A political drama where a new press secretary for a presidential candidate, gets a lesson in dirty politics during an election campaign.
