Everyone is aware of the nation of Lilliput in Jonathan Swift's 'Gulliver's Travels', but what if everyday life was really in miniature? What decision would we make if we had the option to live smaller and yet grander? 'Downsizing' explores a world where over-population is being combatted by just that.
Omaha couple Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) are struggling with their tedious dead-end jobs and are desperate to make a better life for themselves. Luckily for them, there is one option available to them.
In Norway, scientists have found a way to shrink human beings down to five inches tall; that may not sound too attractive to most people, but when people start understanding that it's the perfect solution to over-population and, indeed, to all their environmental issues, as well as being a way to make their money go a lot further, all sorts of people start opting for the lifestyle.

There's nothing particularly memorable about this frantic animated romp, which adapts the iconic phone-app game into a movie using a rather corny plot. But the film is so random that it can't help but get the audience laughing. Youngsters will be delighted by the brightly coloured wackiness, while adults will chuckle at the steady stream of grown-up visual and verbal gags, many of which are frankly surprising to find in a children's movie.
It's set on the isolated Bird Island, where the residents have never learned how to fly and believe they are the only life in the sea. In their tight-knit community, Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) is an outcast because of his too-independent thinking. He's ordered to take anger management classes with groovy guru Matilda (Maya Rudolph), where his fellow students are the hyperactive Chuck (Josh Gad), the hulking Terence (Sean Penn) and the explosive Bomb (Danny McBride). Then a pig named Leonard (Bill Hader) arrives on the island, introducing new technology like sling shots and trampolines and planning a big party. But of course he has a much more nefarious intention that only Red can see. In need of help, Red takes Chuck and Bomb in search of the mythical Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage), the only bird on the island who can fly.
There's a slightly nagging sense that Donald Trump wrote this script (it's about a guy who's ignored as he obnoxiously shouts about the dangers of letting strangers into the community, then is proved right). But the film is so utterly ridiculous that it's impossible to take this rather dodgy theme seriously. What's even more odd is how much of the humour is aimed at grown-ups, including innuendo, puns, gross-out gags and unexpected violence, most of which will go over young viewers' heads. But it's so unfocussed that the only response is to laugh in disbelief that someone thought a joke so near-the-knuckle was appropriate for a kids' movie.

Angry Birds Movie is a screen adaptation from the popular game in which we follow the journey of its main protagonist Red's (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) life from him being bullied at school to his feelings of exclusion in later life. The film is set on an island that is populated with flightless birds whom are mostly happy with their life on the island except Red who suffers with keeping his temper under control.
Continue: 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.

David is a night guard for a company that sells armoured vehicles (known as Loomis Fargo & Company) in North Carolina; and he's not exactly what you'd call a genius. Desperate for a lifestyle away from his routine, low paid job, he sets up a massive heist; intending to break into a vault containing millions of dollars with his co-conspirators Kelly and Steve. They manage to make off with more than $17 million, making it one of the largest bank heists in American history (technically so, as most of the money belonged to the bank). Initially, the police have no leads and David hopes that using the money for something good will redeem him in the eyes of God. The FBI has other ideas when it becomes clear whose behind the robbery.

Like The Hangover, Horrible Bosses was a movie no one really wanted to see a sequel to, but here it is anyway: the same film, but even more inane. It is also likely to make plenty of money from audiences looking for mindless entertainment on a Saturday night. Although "mindless" seems almost complimentary when a movie is as idiotic as this one is. There's so little to its plot that the whole film seems to evaporate before the end of the climactic chase scene.
It's been a couple of years since Nick, Kurt and Dale (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) tried to solve their problems by trying to kill their bosses. Instead, they've become inventors, and have just sold their Shower Buddy to a popular catalogue company owned by Bert (Christoph Waltz). They go all out to fill his order, putting their necks on the line, and Bert leaves them hanging there. Faced with the prospect of losing everything, they again consult their criminal pal Jones (Jamie Foxx), who helps them launch a "kidnaping". The idea is to grab Bert's son Rex (Chris Pine) and demand a ransom to cover their debts. But Rex takes over the operation, asking for a lot more cash and causing a lot more chaos. They also run into a couple of their old bosses: sex-crazed Julia (Jennifer Aniston) is still determined to sleep with Dale, while Harken (Kevin Spacey) can still freak them out from behind bars.
Director-writer Anders and cowriter Morris use almost the exact same formula this time, going for laughs in a carefully plotted caper in which everything that can go wrong does. Although instead of merely being inept, these people are all morons. Bateman's Nick is essentially the straight man in the movie, and even he fails to notice that they've borrowed and spent a vast sum of cash without even a simple contract with Bert. Meanwhile, Kurt and Dale are mind-achingly stupid, bungling every single moment so completely that it's hard to see them as functioning adults. Pine isn't much better, but at least we haven't seen this schtick from him before, and he's rather good at it.
