If you’re finally fed up of BBQs and in need of other entertainment, why not plan a trip to the cinema?
Monsters University (one to take your kids to)
It’s more than ten years since we first saw these cute little monsters and now Pixar is treating us to a prequel. It turns out monsters aren’t born scary – they have to learn!
Mike (the eyeball) and Sulley (the furry one) are on a mission to become scary and even though Mike’s a swot and Sulley’s lazy and arrogant they somehow become friends along the way.
This is classic Pixar, entertaining for both adults and children.
Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (if you fancy a laugh)
The notorious Alan Partridge, responsible for so many face-palms, is now on the big screen and somehow he’s become a siege negotiator charged with talking down a madman and saving hostages. That’s not easy for someone who spends so much time with his foot in his mouth!
If you like your jokes to be cringe-worthy this is just the ticket. It’s a 15 certificate though so don’t bring the kids.
The Conjuring (for scares)
A secluded farmhouse makes a great location for a haunting! This film is based on a true story of two paranormal investigators who are called to help a household suffering from demonic possession. Will the demons win, or will the family survive?
As with all good horror flicks, the fear and violence escalates to keep viewers jumping – keep a tight grip on your popcorn!
Kick-Ass 2 (for action and laughs)
Remember that guy who pretended to be a superhero and the 11-year-old assassin? That was Kick-Ass (featuring Hit Girl), a 2010 film based on the comic series of the same name. This month they’re back, a little older, but just as funny and violent.
Hit Girl wants to retire and be ‘normal’ and Kick-Ass is in danger from his old friend-turned-enemy Red Mist. This film has a lot of swearing but it’s very entertaining too!
