Alvin and the Chipmunks: Road Chip – Bringing back the CGI furballs that can generate considerable bleeding of the ear lobes, Alvin and his brothers believe their owner Dave is going to leave them behind after proposing to his new girlfriend in New York. Chaos can only ensue, but if it keeps the kids entertained for the weekend, it’ll be okay.
Brooklyn – Locations are few, but I would recommend this one because it was premiered at the opening gala of VIFF (review here). This is a heartwarming movie about a young woman named Ellis from Ireland who moves to the States and finds love while also dealing with personal struggles. Interesting movie for those who want to see a drama that isn’t overdone.
Sisters – Amy Poehler and Tina Fey star as two disconnected sisters who have been brought back together to clean all of the things out of their childhood bedroom before their parents move out of the house altogether. The two sisters want to recapture their glory days one last time and decide to throw a high school reunion and invite all their classmates. That can’t go wrong … actually, it probably does. Certainly does sound like a comedy worth watching though.
Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens – If you haven’t taken any time off from your work schedule to check out the most recent unexpected new Star Wars film (thanks, Disney) the weekend is probably the best time for that. (Depending if seating is still available) Taking place years from the last movie, a lone stormtrooper gives up his job and joins forces with Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and other allies to take on new sith lord
Chad Vader Darth Caedus Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). I’ve heard it’s a good film but I still have a couple doubts. Everyone knows how 1, 2, and 3 went.
