New this week...

Bohemian Rhapsody

Unless you've been living under a rock, you will almost certainly be familiar with the 1975 Queen hit Bohemian Rhapsody – and this biographical drama of the same name tells the story of the legendary British band, how the radio refused to play their songs til they decided to switch it up and turn into international superstars, with Egyptian-born Rami Malek seamlessly transforming into the legendary Freddie Mercury, who is the focus of the film.

Surprisingly, since its release, the movie hasn’t exactly had the best reception amongst critics, yet people seem to love it.

Boarding School

 

When six 12-year-old kids are sent to an ‘exclusive school for young people’ by their parents, they soon realise that this is far from your typical boarding school, with a creepily mysterious headmaster and his wife and a mansion the kids are gonna have to escape from if they value their life. Best leave the young ones at home for this one.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

In JK Rowling’s weird world of wizards, the legendary professor Dumbledore enlists the help of former student Newt Scamander to hunt down dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald who shows no mercy to this little man with big magic wand skills. If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, this one’s for you.

IMDB: 8.2/10

The World is Yours

 

It would be silly not to watch this movie due to the fact that it’s in French. Aren’t you bored of the typical Hollywood blockbusters? ‘The World is Yours’ seamlessly blends in comedy with the dark world of drug dealing, as Fares has to go through one last major job to get out of this life of crooks and dodgy individuals.

Overlord

 You best have your body armor on for this one! Overlord tells the story of American paratroopers on one crazy mission on the eve of D-Day in a a Nazi-occupied village. But some strange things start happening in that village, things out of the military-norm. They end up having to fight supernatural forces, which are a part of a Nazi experiment.
