Life made simple

It's winter, and that means going to the movies. The real movies.


Hands up, everyone who doesn’t like movies. Anyone? No hands are going up, which means that everyone loves movies.

We all have different opinions on what a ‘great’ movie is, though. One man’s sci-fi horror is another woman’s romcom is another kid’s Pixar animation. But it’s always great to watch a movie in a real cinema, with great quality picture and sound.

The only problem is getting there. When you suffer from the universal affliction of busy-ness, it’s hard to find the time to get to the mall for two hours of movie heaven.

But it’s winter now, with less happening outdoors, so DO it. Take a fellow movie lover with you, take the kids, or just leave everyone at home and go solo on a quiet afternoon. Quiet afternoons are the best, by the way, because there are no long queues for anything. Avoid Friday and Saturday nights at the big movie venues when it’s really crowded.

Do the full movie Monty, with popcorn, sweets or snacks, and big drinks with lots of ice. If you can make it through a movie without them, you’re an unusual person.

What’s coming to the big screens near you? Some excellent stuff. Here are three that are on our must-watch list:

The Whole Truth (Thriller)

Defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Keanu Reeves) takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter (Renee Zellweger), that he will keep her son Mike (Gabriel Basso) out of prison.

Do the full movie Monty, with popcorn, sweets or snacks, and big drinks with lots of ice.

Charged with murdering his father, Mike initially confesses to the crime. But as the trial proceeds, chilling evidence about the kind of man that Boone Lassiter (Jim Belushi) really was comes to light.

Cars 3 (Animation, Family)

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns.

Rough Night (Comedy)

Five best friends (Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, Zoë Kravitz) from college reunite 10 years later for a wild bachelorette weekend in Miami. Their hard partying takes a hilariously dark turn when they accidentally kill a male stripper. Amid the craziness of trying to cover it up, they’re ultimately brought closer together when it matters most.
