Winter is all about Movie Nights: staying home, grabbing a blanket, and settling in with a DVD and some homemade popcorn. Here are five movies that’ll keep you going this month.
If you have kids (and even if you don’t), this one’s a must for your home collection. Zootropolis is a city populated by animals from all backgrounds and all environments – but when bunny Judy Hopps arrives as a new recruit on the Zootropolis police force, she enters a world where things aren’t quite as they seem. Stuck on a team of big animals, she’s on a mission to prove herself… and she’ll need the help of fast-talking, sly fox Nick Wilde to help her solve the mystery. Disney animation at its best.
Happiness Is A Four Letter Word
You may have missed this under-rated South African romantic drama when it was on at the cinemas. Don’t make the same mistake now that it’s on DVD. Based on Cynthia Jele’s award-winning novel, it’s a charming, heart-warming tale of three best friends – played by Mmabatho Montsho, Khanyi Mbau and Renate Stuurman – who’re living and loving in the fast pace of Johannesburg. Perfect for those “book club” girlfriend gatherings where no actual books are involved.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice
Batman (Oscar winner Ben Affleck) plus Superman (Henry Cavill) plus a director with a proven comic book track record (Watchmen, 300, Man of Steel) equals can’t-miss superhero action. It’s all action, with DC Comics’ iconic superheroes slugging it out… and a new threat arising to put them – and the world – in grave danger. Owning the DVD means you’ll be able to skip ahead to the classic – SPOILER ALERT! – Wonder Woman fight scene!
90 Minutes In Heaven
Here’s a departure from the skop-skiet action options: a faith-affirming film (based on a true story) of a Texas pastor who is declared dead at the scene of a car accident, and believes that he visits heaven before coming back to life an hour and a half later. The cast – including Hayden Christensen, Kate Bosworth and Dwight Yoakam – guarantees quality, and the story will lift your spirit.
This is action at its most action-packed: a heist movie, with a killer cast and a plot that’s filled with crosses and double-crosses. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Norman Reedus, Aaron Paul, Kate Winslet, Casey Affleck and Woody Harrelson lead the ensemble (you’ll recognise a few of them from your favourite movies and TV shows). You’ll want to cook up an extra batch of popcorn for this one!
