Cinema Releases in November

Animated Films for all the family.  
posterDisneys " A Christmas Carol "

The actor Jim Carrey who doesn't really seem to be on our screen much these days is back in the latest cinema take on a Dickens classic - "A Christmas Carol". Jim Carrey does the voice for four characters in this film, Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and yet to come. Also stars Gary Oldman as Marley.

This admirable story takes Scrooge, who is a non believer in the Christmas spirit, on a cold night's journey to re-discover the kind man he used to be.
In glorious 3D and with director Robert Zemeckis ( Back To The Future, The Polar Express ) this animated film is bound to keep us high with Christmas spirit and warm at heart through the cold winter time.

Planet 51

Just when you thought you had seen enough animations for one year, writer Joe Stillman ( Shrek ) and a new director Jorge Blanco bring us this family adventure "Planet 51"- with voices done by Dwayne Johnson ( The Race To Witch Car Mountain ) and Justin Long ( Funny People ) .
This film is pretty fresh in some respects - American astronaut "Chuck" lands on Planet 51 strongly believing that he is the only one to ever discover the planet. Little does he know Planet 51 is overrun by tiny green people who have only one worry: being invaded by aliens !
We also hear John Cleese ( Fawlty Towers ) doing the voice for Professor Kipple which will be a pleasant surprise for adults, helping to make this film enjoyable for all generations.


posterCatch It While You Can

This month's ‘Catch It While You Can' spot is dedicated to the amazing, breath taking, colourful " Up ". Blessing our cinemas since early October but still showing until late November, this clearly shows the high level of this masterpiece. From Disney and Pixar we are bought the adventure of 78 year old Carl and his 70 years younger new friend and explorer Russell. After Carl attaches thousands of balloons to his house to make it fly, both Carl and Russell embrace on an around the world journey.
From the writer of such legendary films as Toy Story, Wall E, Monsters Inc., this is no downward path in the man's career. It in fact takes him to new heights, as many critics and fans are calling this film the best Pixar film to date. When this film comes out on DVD, you might find a part of yourself sad that you missed it at the cinema, so this is your chance to catch it while you can !
