5 movies to watch this week (10 Mar 2016)

Kung Fu Panda 3

For fans of: Jack Black and pandas 

DreamWorks Animation turns the Kung Fu Panda series of awesomeness into a trilogy of awesomeness with this third feature that reunites Po with his long lost father. 

Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross and Dustin Hoffman lend their voices once again along with new stars Bryan Cranston, Rebel Wilson and Academy Award winner JK Simmons. 

The Brothers Grimsby

For fans of: Ali G and Borat

After making the world laugh and gasp in awe as the daft Ali G, benevolent dictator General Aladeen and Kazakhstani journalist Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen takes on the spy genre as dim-witted football-loving yob Nobby in ‘The Brothers Grimsby’.

Mark Strong is a British black ops spy forced to go on the run with his football hooligan brother (Cohen). Co-stars Rebel Wilson and Isla Fisher. From the director of ‘Now You See Me’ and ‘The Transporter’.

Hail, Caesar!

For fans of: ‘Burn After Reading’ (2008) and ‘Fargo’ (1996) 

Coen brothers returns to the big screen with a hilarious exploration of 1950s cinema. 'Hail Caesar' follows a Hollywood "fixer" (Josh Brolin) in 1950s Los Angeles trying to track down a star (George Clooney) who has vanished during the filming of a Roman epic. All-star cast also includes Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton and Tilda Swinton (yup, you saw that right; she plays dual roles). 

The Kid From The Big Apple 

For fans of: ‘You Are The Apple of My Eye’ (2011) and ‘The Journey’ (2014)

Helmed by Malaysian director Jess Teong, ‘The Kid From Big Apple’ tells the story of 12-year-old Sarah (Tan Qin Lin) who moves from New York to Malaysia to live with her grandfather. Obviously, she has some big adjustments to get used to. 

If you like heart-warming, feel-good flicks in the vein of ‘You Are The Apple of My Eye’ (2011) and ‘The Journey’ (2014), you have to watch this. The film recently won four awards -- best writing, best actor, best supporting actor and best newcomer -- at the 7th Macau International Movie Festival.
