Clearly, cinemas are holding on to their new releases for Boxing Day. There is just one new release and it is ...


This third movie adaptation of ANNIE is a real bummer according to those who have seen it so far. You probably know the story. A foster kid, who lives with her mean foster mom, sees her life change when business tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the consensus is, The new-look Annie hints at a progressive take on a well-worn story, but smothers its likable cast under clich├ęs, cloying cuteness, and a distasteful materialism. Give it a miss!

That’s it for this week. See you at the movies!
