What movies to watch this weekend?

In the Cinema:

2001: A Space Odyssey
50 years after it's initial release Omniplex Cinemas are giving the viewing public another chance to see Stanley Kubrick’s dazzling Academy Award winning compelling science fiction drama of man vs. machine. Surely too good an opportunity to be missed for any avid movie goer!


Cargo (Netflix)
Netflix Original feature written and directed by Yolanda Ramke this fresh take on the zombie genre benefits largely to a fantastic lead performance by Martin Freeman and  a wonderful Australian setting. Highly recommended!

On Telly

Catch Me If You Can (RTE 2 Saturday 2nd June 20:00)
I always felt that this true story of Frank Abignale Jnr, a conman who charmed his way across America, evading the FBI at every turn, was one of Steven Spielbergs finest and hugely underrated films such is the fascinating story and wonderful performances from its two leading actors Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio. Hard to believe its fifteen years old but most definitely worth another watch.
