What movies to watch this weekend

In the Cinema:

Jumanji:Welcome to the Jungle
A remake of sorts of the famous Robin Williams vehicle from the mid 90's this reboot stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black and Kevin Hart and is directed by Jake Kasdan. Should be interesting to say the least (and not lacking in energy)!This weekend sees a few preview screenings before it's general release next week.


John Wick (Netflix)
Ah John Wick! - the king of  over the top, belief suspending plot and action.The movie that makes every other action film look like Mary Poppins! Park the brain for 90 minutes and enjoy some high calibre fight choreography and action sequences as Keanu Reeves takes on the world... and wins! Good fun (just don't be tempted by the simply awful sequel!)

On Telly

The Drop (Channel 4 Saturday 9th December 23:35)
Written by Dennis Lehane and with a cast that boasts the likes of the late great James Gandofini (in his final film role), Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace this crime drama from Academy Award nominated director Michaƫl R. Roskam was always going to be something a bit special. Excellent!
