The Ritual (15) – what’s it about? A group of guys go on a hiking holiday to Sweden in memory of their friend who was murdered.
When will people learn don’t go into the dark woods – shortcuts are bad – stick to the track damn it! Ok if they did it would make for pretty shit movies. This is a run of the mill horror movie in that there’s not really anything original about it; the only interesting thing is where they are up against something a little more than the average serial killer or witch. It was a good watch don’t get me wrong; it had its entertaining moments and was a little creepy. If you like a little bit of horror in your life then this maybe right up your street – just don’t expect to be scared shitless.
Thor: Ragnarok (12A) – what’s it about? Thor’s sister returns and takes over Asgard and Thor must battle to save his world.
I like Thor and the Marvel universe but this I’m not sure, it was good yes and the characters are always fun – I liked seeing the Hulk being himself rather than just smash. But I don’t know it just seemed more of a comedy that the normal movies which are usually a bit more action and story with a bit of comedy thrown in to keep it light hearted. I don’t know maybe I’m just being a grumpy old git, it’s still worth a watch through if you like the Marvel stuff.
Over The Hedge (DVD – U) – what’s it about? A group of forest animals wake up to find a new housing estate has appeared, they team up with a racoon so they can collect enough food for winter.
This is a Dreamworks movie so you know the drill it’s a cartoon with a good lot of humour but they make it fun for the whole family. It’s a good little story with enough stuff going on to keep you entertained no matter your age group and give some good laughs too…well it gave me enough laughs anyway. If you like a good fun cartoon to help brighten up your day then this is worth a watch.
