This is only technically a remake of the iconic 1979 film starring movie icons George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg. While that film was a bittersweet comedy about old age, this one has a lot less on its mind. Instead, it goes for more populist joys like slapstick and smiley banter, all based on the A-list casting of present-day icons Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin. At least they give it some oomph.
It all starts when Joe (Caine) is notified by his bank that his mortgage is overdue, but this is only because they tripled the interest rate. And the situation becomes even more desperate when the company where he worked for 40 years is sold to a multinational, which liquidates the pension fund, leaving Joe and his pals Willie and Albert (Freeman and Arkin) in serious trouble. So Joe hatches a crazy scam to steal the money back from the bank, and Willie and Albert go along with it. They get advice from low-level criminal Jesus (John Ortiz) to work out the details. Meanwhile, Willie is undergoing treatment for kidney failure, and his age has left him far down the donor list. And Albert finally gives in to the flirtatious advances of amorous shop-clerk Annie (Ann-Margret).

Everyone has dreamed of owning Aladdin's lamp at some point in their life, and some people might know exactly what they'd wish for. When that opportunity lands in the hands of a teenager named Claire in the form of an old magical music box, she is offered seven wishes. With them she is granted popularity and prosperity, but at a terrible price. Her dreams are coming true to the expense of the people around her, both enemies and loved ones, who are facing their very worst nightmares. She has no choice but to dispose of her music box; but with a magic that powerful, it's going to be almost impossible to let it go. The message here is clear: Be careful what you wish for.

Danny Winters is a young man in 1969, who becomes disenfranchised from the marginalisation and discrimination of some members of society. His radical opinions cause his parents to kick him out of their Kansas home, and so he takes the opportunity to travel to New York where he meets a group of liberal and flamboyant youths who shelter him and bring him to a discreet gay club run by the mafia known as The Stonewall Inn. Unfortunately, this is a place frequently raided by cops, who are less than liberal in their way of thinking. Tired of the constant social threats and alienation, Danny leads an army with members of the gay, trans and cross-dressing community to fight against the corrupt police with a full scale riot.

Aidan Bloom may look like he's got a lot going for him on the outside, in his prime at 35 with a beautiful wife and two loving children named Grace and Tucker, but the truth is he's floundering. He dreams of being an actor, but that's not a job you can guarantee stability from and thus he no longer has enough money to send his kids to a private school - even with the full to bursting swear jar. He decides to home tutor them after deciding against public school, and soon discovers that he's not the only one in his life who is having problems. With his father having his own issues and his daughter feeling deep regret after cutting off her hair, he starts to realise that he might have to save his family before he himself can be saved.

Old-style filmmaking makes this movie scarier than other recent horror films, simply because director Wan (Saw/Insidious) takes the time to actually develop suspense. By not using cheap trickery, he continually sends chills up our spine. So it's a shame that the story isn't more original, merely pasting together every haunted house cliche imaginable into what's apparently based on real events, but is clearly fictionalised.
Real-life ghostbusters Ed and Lorraine Warren (Wilson and Farmiga) investigated a series of hauntings, possessions and other supernatural events over their career. Their most famous case is Amityville, while this story has apparently only recently been released. It involves the Perron family, which experiences all kinds of strange phenomena when they move into a Rhode Island house in 1971. Carolyn (Taylor) starts having freaky nightmares accompanied by nasty bruising, while Roger (Livingston) struggles to cope with the odd behaviour of their five daughters (Caswell, McFarland, King, Foy and Deaver). As the Warrens determine that this is a case of demonic possession, things get even crazier.
The plot is set out as a fairly straightforward investigation, as the Warrens try to get proof of possession so they can call in a priest. Filmmaker Wan uses this to lure us into a false sense of security, quietly taking us through long scenes in which nothing much happens before gently turning the screws then shocking us with something intensely creepy. Some of this is rather obvious (like a nasty-looking doll or an evil-sounding music box), but it's such sure-handed filmmaking that it can't help but make us squirm in our seats.

When USCP officer John Cale is turned down as he applies for a highly coveted role in the Secret Service, he is devastated but cannot find it in himself to disappoint his young daughter Emily who idolises him and his job. In a bid to give Emily an experience to remember, he takes her on a tour of the White House, but what started out as the most normal of days (if a little extra exciting for Emily) quickly becomes a situation of life and death when terrorist groups launch a series of bombs that hit the White House causing a shocking scene of devastation. John now finds himself with the responsibility of keeping his daughter safe from harm as well as protecting President James Sawyer along with the rest of his country. He may have lost out on becoming an official protector of the President, but he now faces a true test of his abilities that is unlikely to go unnoticed.

Stars pose with their families and Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse on the red carpet at the Disney Live! Mickey's Music Festival held at Madison Square Garden, New York City. Among them are comedienne Ali Wentworth, whose daughters have donned Mickey Mouse ears, and 'Grey's Anatomy' star Eric Dane with his wife, Rebecca Gayheart, and daughters Billie and Georgia.
Like Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, this film shows the overpowering strength of Disney and producer Joe Roth, as they once again bury a gifted filmmaker and cast in an effects extravaganza that's strong on visuals but short on story. There are glimpses of Raimi's genius here and there, most notably in his eye-catching use of 3D. And the actors manage to inject a bit of spark into their family-friendly characters. But the plot and the relentlessly simplistic tone will only please children or undemanding adults.
At least it looks amazing. And like the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, the film opens in black and white with a Kansas-set prologue, where the womanising conman Oscar (Franco) performs as the flashy magician Oz. Chased into a hot-air balloon by an angry husband, he is engulfed by a tornado and drops into the colourful land of Oz, where people are looking for a messianic wizard named Oz to save them from the witch who murdered their king. But which witch is the wicked one? Oscar first meets the naive Theodora (Kunis), who hasn't yet decided if she'll be evil or not, then her big sister Evanora (Weisz), the steely interim ruler, and then the too-good Glinda (Williams). And even though he's not a real wizard, he might have some tricks up his sleeve that can help.
The film mixes ideas from L Frank Baum's stories with references to the iconic 1939 film, plus much more epic landscapes of Oz recreated with eye-popping digital trickery. On the other hand, the plot is formulaic and predictable, with characters who are only superficially complex and are far too obvious in the way they interact, badly underestimating the sophistication of even very young children in the audience. But the real problem is that the film is focussed on visual spectacle rather than endearing characters. The sidekicks this time are a slightly creepy-looking flying monkey (Braff) and a feisty china doll (King), both rendered with elaborate motion-capture effects that never quite seem to be there on the set with the actors.

When the Perron family of six move to a rural old farmhouse in New England, things seemed too good to be true as they find themselves with more space than they could've dreamed of. However, their perfect family unit is soon to be disrupted when strange and often violent supernatural happenings keep taking place about the house at all hours of the day and night. They soon find themselves the target of a demonic spirit hell-bent on devastating their lives and family home. In a bid to rid themselves of this dark force, they call upon the noted paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren, to help bring some peace back into their lives. Little do they know that even the Warrens are in too deep with this particular case.

Emily Smith-Dungy is a 16-year-old super high achieving student with a great passion for jumping rope. However, she becomes increasingly annoyed with her parents - Samantha, a business executive with her thoughts only on herself, and Duncan, a cheerful but equally self-absorbed artist - as they persistently show a lack of support for their children, and she is stretched to breaking point when they fail to show up at her all-important Michigan state rope jumping competition. She drugs her parents' wine glasses with sleeping pills and ties them to chairs with her skipping ropes, determined to force them to listen to her and her brother and sister Lucinda and Jackson. She faces them with multiple choice questions and assessments about being parents mentoring them on appropriate topics of conversation around her friends and boyfriends and the sensible levels of alcohol consumption all in order to rebuild her family and gain a little more attention from her career-obsessed and family-ignorant parents.
'Family Weekend' is a hilarious comedy about family life to its extremes. It has been directed by Benjamin Epps in his feature film directorial debut and written by Matt K. Turner ('The Truth'). It is due for release this Spring on April 23rd 2013.
