Office Christmas Party Review

Good

Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman reunite with The Switch directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck for a holiday comedy based on a story by the guys who wrote The Hangover movies. Yes, this is pretty much what you expect it will be: a clumsily written lark that strains for gross-out gags. But it also manages to keep the audience laughing, simply because the cast is up for it.

It's set in the Chicago branch of a technology firm, where the playful director Clay (T.J. Miller) has created a lively atmosphere but is losing money. So his CEO sister Carol (Aniston) drops in to tell him she's planning to shut down the branch. Clay and manager Josh (Bateman) have one last hope: to land a big client (Courtney B. Vance), so they invite him to their epic Christmas party, which is also designed to assure the staff that everything is fine. Helping with the plan are the IT expert Tracey (Olivia Munn) and the HR director Mary (Kate McKinnon). And no one is surprised when the festivities begin to spin crazily out of control.

Frankly, the party itself is the weakest thing about the movie, as it's blown up far beyond credibility, and never given much attention in the narrative. Instead, the through-line is the wacky caper involving the central characters, played by a gang of actors who are experts at improvisation, so they continually throw amusing bits of unexpected comedy at the audience. The winner is McKinnon, who is consistently hysterical, stealing every scene as she did in Ghostbusters. But Munn's acerbic wit and Miller's endearing nuttiness give her a run for her money. As does Rob Corddry as a chucklehead colleague. By comparison, Aniston and Bateman anchor the film as the vaguely more grounded figures. Although Carol is a pretty nasty piece of work, we have no doubt that everyone will wear her down in the end.

Office Christmas Party Trailer


For many large companies, the office Christmas party are nights that can rapidly descend into mayhem. Free flowing liquor, music, Santa hats and the thought of the Winter Holiday period off work are enough motivation to drive even the most straight of employees to unwind.

Clay Vanstone is part of the family business, out of all their branches, his in the one that's failing and Clay is hardly a usually businessman. His sister, Carol is firm on the idea of closing down his branch but Clay is steadfast in saving the business. 

As the holidays approach, Clay comes up with the great idea of combining the office party with a boozy meeting with some new clients, who, if they win their business would be enough to save their fun-loving branch.

Ghostbusters Reboot Gets Confirmation Of A Second Film


Kristen Wiig Leslie Jones Kate McKinnon

In among ALL the controversy surrounding the reboot of Ghostbusters, there was an actual film and it turned out that it wasn’t that bad at all. And now, as angry fanboys continue to rage and people refuse to get over the fact the remake is a cast of women, Sony has confirmed Ghostbusters 2.

Melissa McCarthyMelissa McCarthy has a great time filming the reboot Ghostbusters

The film was hugely hyped before its actual release - largely because of the issue of gender - but Sony sat on its hedges and director Paul Feig said the movie would need to make $500million before anyone important sat up and took notice.

Ghostbusters Review

Excellent

It's been more than 30 years since the Ghostbusters first hit the big screen with a then-original mix of comedy and supernatural action. Intriguingly, this new film is neither a sequel nor a remake; it's a reboot of the franchise, which loosely adapts the original 1984 premise to all-new characters. Thankfully, the screenplay is smart and funny, and the cast is flat-out hilarious.

It opens as university professor Erin (Kristen Wiig) sees her hopes for tenure evaporate when a book she wrote years ago with her childhood pal Abby (Melissa McCarthy) resurfaces, affirming their belief in ghosts. So Erin seeks out Abby, and discovers that she's still researching the supernatural, now with the sharp-witted gadget maker Jillian (Kate McKinnon). With spirit sightings on the rise in New York, the three decide to launch a ghost-busting business, joined by city expert Patty (Leslie Jones) and bimbo receptionist Kevin (Chris Hemsworth). But the apparitions popping up around the city are getting increasingly malevolent, and it's clear that an apocalypse is brewing.

The basic plot is lifted from the original movie, which is referenced in virtually every scene. Most of this is rather distracting, because a more original storyline would have been a lot more involving and the in-jokes will be lost on younger audiences. But it's fun to see the original cast members turn up here and there in random cameos.

Finding Dory Trailer


Dory's past has always eluded her, she's a little forgetful fish whose bright character and warm heart make up for all the times she's got herself - and her friends - into trouble. Dory lives with Marlin and Nemo but now she wants to go out and find her real parents. Before she can begin her real adventure, Dory finds herself being scooped up and taken to a marine institute. Whilst in quarantine, Dory meets a whole host of new friends who instantly take to the little blue tang. Hank, the octopus, Bailey the white beluga whale and Destiny the whale shark are just a few creatures who will help her. 

For Dory, her mission is quite clear, she must escape the confines of her new home and return to the ocean to find her family - whilst hopefully finding Marlin and Nemo once again too. Dory's new friends in the institute are eager to help Dory out however they can.

Angry Birds Trailer


Red lives on a sun-kissed tropical island full of plenty of other vibrant flightless birds. And while all of his friends and neighbours seem to be enjoying life, he is having a far less enjoyable time. He's just extremely quick to anger, very slow to forgive and struggles to be friendly to just about anyone. Thus, he is forced to undergo anger management therapy to control his emotions before his hostility really gets out of hand. On attending his first group session, he meets the fast-talking faster-moving Chuck and the shy but quick to explode Bomb and together they attempt to conquer their stress. But upon the arrival of some suspicious looking pigs led by Leonard, Red and his new friends are the only ones who seem to be suspicious of their unlikely visitors.
