Tralee Omniplex Tuesday Treat - What movie deserves your €6 this week?

With the impending arrival of the highly anticipated Star Wars:The Last Jedi to Tralee Omniplex s on midnight Wednesday (with a special showing of the Force Awakens also available beforehand for those interested) there are no new releases on show for Tuesday Treat. There are however plenty of quality features still on show and I've included previews of all below and all for the giveaway price of just €6!

The Star:
Another yuletide delight, this animated account of the Nativity has split critics and audiences right down the middle but should be highly enjoyable for the younger members of the family. Good family fun!

This heartfelt and charming drama from director Stephen Chbosky based on the New York Times best selling novel is alleviated largely due to some terrific performances form its cast that includes Owen Wilson, Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay - Just may well be this weeks pick of the bunch!

Daddys Home 2:
Subject to my traleetoday review (which can be read here) and overall an enjoyable ninety minutes holiday for the brain, the antics of Ferrell, Wahlberg, Gibson and Lithgow keep this yuletide tale of merriment rolling nicely along as is well worth your attention. Just don't expect any Oscar's to be handed out for it!

Battle of the Sexes
 This Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris true life dramedy has enjoyed very positive reviews with Emma Stone and Steve Carrell in particular earning high praise for their strong performances.
One to watch!

Justice League:
Some mixed reviews circulating for this one already. Whereas it hasn't hit the depths of Batman vs Superman (thankfully!) it still has an over reliance on it's big budget CGI effects with the plot, script and characters suffering. Maybe one strictly for fans of the franchise!

Paddington 2:
The world's favourite fictional bear (Winnie the who?) gets another outing as director Paul King again takes the reins which sees the lovable bear and the Brown family undertake another whirlwind adventure.

Benefiting from some positive reviews, this latest edition in the Thor series is one packed with action, humour and most of all fun as it reaps the rewards of having Taiki Waititi on board and the unique style he brings as director.

Murder on the Orient Express:
Kenneth Brannagh directs and stars in this adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel whilst surrounded by an all stellar cast. Reviews have been somewhat mixed so may be one for fans of the genre only.
