5 movies to watch this week (11 Feb 2016)

Deadpool

For fans of: 'X-Men'

Ryan Reynolds is Marvel's "merc with a mouth", Deadpool, in this origin story following the former Special Forces operative turned mercenary.

Subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, he adopts an alter ego and hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool first appears in 2009's Fox/Marvel film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. After wooing Comic Con audiences with a spectacular CGI short, this feature looks to follow the wise-cracking, self-healing mercenary as he shoots bullets, chops heads, and NOT get his mouth sewn shut.


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

For fans of: 'The Walking Dead' and 'Sense & Sensibility'

Familiar with the classic Jane Austen tale of social classes and relationship entanglements set in 19th Century England? This is that, but with zombies. Co-stars Lily James (Cinderella), Doctor Who’s Matt Smith and Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey and Charles Dance.


What We Do In The Shadows

For fans of: Flight of The Conchords

Our favourite indie-cinema The Projector turns one this weekend (sort of), and they're celebrating this milestone with a special premiere of 'What We Do In The Shadows'.

Taika Waititi ('Boy') and Jemaine Clement ('Flight of the Conchords') are the writers, directors and stars of this vampire mockumentary. Unearthing a secret, supernatural society, otherwise known as a bunch of vampire flatmates in Wellington, the film introduces a world where friendship and camaraderie are just as important as feasting upon the flesh of mortals. Based on Waititi and Clement's 2006 short film of the same name.


Mood Indigo

For fans of: 'Be Kind, Rewind' and 'Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind'

It's the Valentine's Day weekend and as a special treat for lovebirds, there is a screening of Michel Gondry's 'Mood Indigo' over at The Projector. There is a certain “je ne sais quoi” about the French director-producer extraordinaire film adaptation of Boris Vian’s 1947 novel ‘J’Écume des jours’. ‘Mood Indigo’ provides an experience not unlike watching an extended episode of ‘Pee-wee’s Playhouse’, except with very grown-up content.  

Colin (Romain Duris) leads an easy boho life as a wealthy inventor, who lives in his quirky trailer-like house with his friend/personal chef/lawyer/accountant/caretaker Nicholas (Omar Sy) and an anthropomorphic ‘mouse’ (a mouse-sized man in a mouse costume). His carefree days are interrupted when his mate Chick (Gad Elmaleh), a man who is obsessed with Jean Sol-Parte (a spoonerism of existential philosopher Jean-Paul Sarte), suddenly announces that he’s fallen in love. READ REVIEW



Fitoor

For fans of: 'Bang Bang' and 'Phantom'

Katrina Kaif, Tabu and Aditya Roy Kapur lead this Bollywood tale spread throughout two generations, following an impressionable shikara boy who is drawn to the wealthiest woman in town.
