Movies: Daddy’s Home (12A), Joy (12A), The Danish Girl (15), Shanghai Noon (DVD – 12), Shanghai Knights (DVD – 12A) & The Marine (DVD – 15)

Daddy’s Home (12A) – what’s it about? Brad, a step-father, is faced with troubles as the kid’s real father returns and the pair battle it out to be top dog.

This movie was cringe worthy, I spent most of my time thinking wtf how bad this movie was, yes there were a couple of funny moments but nothing that makes me ever want to watch this again!

Rating: J O

Joy (12A) – what’s it about? The story of Joy as she creates her business empire

This is basically a two hour advert for a mop, that said though it was pretty good. The story was alright and the characters interesting but it wasn’t exactly what I thought it was going to be, but still good.

The Danish Girl (15) – what’s it about? The story of two artists, one of which goes on a transgender transformation, this movie is inspired by Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener

I wasn’t quite sure on watching this as it’s advertised as a romance film and I’m not exactly a big fan of those but its actually about a lot more than that, it has a really good story and was really interesting.

Shanghai Noon (DVD – 12) – what’s it about? East meets west as an unlikely pair try to rescue the kidnapped Chinese princess

This is one of those action-comedies, if you like martial arts mayhem and humour and a bit of the wild west as well then you’ll probably love this. It’s a good mix with an alright story, action and comedy, worth a look if you haven’t seen before!

Shanghai Knights (DVD – 12A) – what’s it about? When the Emperors seal is stolen the duo head to the UK to find it!

This is the sequel to Shanghai Noon; if you liked that movie then this one will be right up your street. It continues in the same vein but this time heads across the pond from the US to the UK. Once again it’s filled with martial arts, comedy and action and is a great combo-mix of it all!

The Marine (DVD – 15) – what’s it about? His wife gets kidnapped by robbers and he goes after them to save her…

“Ok we need to make this movie be really cool so lets have explosions, loads of them, everything must explode, there must be as many as possible, make it explode, EVERYTHING and make it BIG!” I’m sure this is what the makers of this film said, I’m not kidding literally everything in this movie explodes. It’s one of those mindless movies that you just watch for the action, there is a small dash of plot thrown in but yeah lots of mindless violence, action and explosions. A good brain-dead movie!
