Dumb and Dumber To

Starring: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle

The idiots are back – and while it’s quite strange to see Carrey and Daniels returning to these characters 20 years later, the genius of the first movie means there’s a lot of credit in the bank. It would be hard to top the original – and this doesn’t – but the pair’s chemistry remains intact.

Big Eyes

Starring: Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Krysten Ritter

Tim Burton turns to more everyday matters in this biopic about painters Walter and Margaret Keane, the former of whom became a world-famous painter having claimed credit for his wife’s titular portrait style. There are great performances as you would imagine, while this is by far the director’s most mainstream work for some time. It’s up to you to decide how you feel about that.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

{youtube}iVAgTiBrrDA{/youtube}

Starring: Richard Armitage, Martin Freeman, Luke Evans

Peter Jackson’s epic trilogy based on Tolkien’s (pretty slim) novel comes to a close with a battle the size of which we’ve rarely seen on-screen. Heroes are made, deaths are inevitable and hobbit ears are ready to be returned to the costume department.

Unbroken

{youtube}X8mBzKLhL0U{/youtube}

Starring: Jack O’Connell, Domhnall Gleeson, Miyavi

This incredible story is the kind that would be considered absurd if it wasn’t true. Former Skins actor O’Connell gets his Hollywood breakout role as Louis Zamperini, a former world-class athlete who fought in World War II, was captured and then tortured by the Japanese before escaping. Angelina Jolie takes on directing duties. Triumph of the human spirit barely begins to describe it.
