In Cinemas This Week

Many apologies for the lack of a post last week. The Easter break got the better of me.

Date Night - Steve Carell (40 Year Old Virgin) and Tina Fey (30 Rock) star in this screwball comedy about a suburban married couple who, on their regular romantic night out, encounter a series of unrelated coincidences that lead to a series of misunderstandings and slapstick. Has been described as a "hybrid of middle-aged rom-com and Hollywood action movie". Directed by Shawn Levy (Night At The Museum) and co-starring Mark Whalberg, Mia Kunis, James Franco, Kirsten Wiig. Looks pretty fun and a good one for a date night of your own!

Kick-Ass - The latest super-hero spectacular has been causing controversy wherever it screens. Intersecting stories of a young guy dealing with his own secret identity, an 11-year-old foul-mouthed female crime fighter, her gun-obsessed father and assorted other masked wannabe vigilantes, this ultra-violent super-colourful fight-fest does its best to be super-cool and appeal to geeks everywhere. Unfortunately, at a screening recently it left me a little indifferent, but that may be because I like my violent comic-book action a little more intense than most. Worth catching if you're at all interested in the super-hero genre, need something geeky to relate to or have read the original graphic novel.
