We’ve got a couple of great family films out this week, both with the thumbs up from our Filmclub experts!

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Sherlock-Holmes-A-Game-of-Shadows-Movie-Poster-©-Warner-Bros.1

Cert: (12A)

Running Time: 129 mins

Year Produced: 2011

Director: Guy Ritchie

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Jared Harris, Rachel McAdams

The sharp and witty Victorian detectives return with the same combination of action, thrills and crime as before. This time Holmes and Dr Watson are up against the best criminal mastermind in the world, the evil Professor James Moriarty. The duo’s skills are stretched beyond London in a race to prevent nothing less than the collapse of Western civilization, as Moriarty creates havoc across the world. The utterly outrageous plot is nothing like the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but this is still as fun and action-packed as the last film.

Like this? Then also try these great films: Sherlock Holmes (2009, 12), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939, PG), Gaslight (1944, PG), The Pink Panther (1963, PG), The Maltese Falcon (1941, PG)

Runtime: 120 mins

Year Produced: 2011

Director: Wilson Yip

Cast: Jacky Wu, Louis Koo, Chun Wu

We’ve had Fantastic Four, we’ve had X-men and now we have Five Element Wizardry. In a world made up of five elements: gold, wood, water, fire and earth are five wizards with magical talents powered by each of these elements. But one wizard wants more. The Wizard of Fire, But Yeh-Mo, has discovered the secret to time travel and is determined to go back and change his past. Believing this is dangerous, his friend the Wizard of Earth, Ling Fung refuses to help him, igniting a ridiculous magical battle. With an overload of special effects and slapstick Ling enlists the help of his fellow wizards to stop But on his crazy mission.

And if you’re in the mood for a different type of film again…

Meet Me in St Louis

Meet-Me-in-St-Louis

Cert: (U)

Runtime: 113 mins

Year Produced: 1944

Director: Vincente Minnelli

Cast: Judy Garland, Mary Astor, Lucille Bremner, Harry Davenport, Leon Ames
On the surface a chocolate-box musical drama set in bygone days, this is actually a moving portrait of family life, with some wonderful songs. Judy Garland (famous for playing Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz) may be in bloomers and hair ribbons – but cast as young Esther Smith, whose father wants to move the family away from their home town just as she’s fallen in love, she’s dealing with the universal problems of boys and the sacrifices involved when your life is not your own.

Like this? Then also try these great films: The Wizard of Oz (1939, U), An American In Paris (1951, U), The Best Years Of Our Lives (1946, U), The Magnificent Ambersons (1942, U), Pleasantville (1998, 12)

And let’s end with a massive blockbuster!

DECEMBER 21st

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

tomcruise-stun-missionimpossible

Cert: (TBA)

Running Time: 132 mins

Year Produced: 2011

Director: Brad Bird

Cast: Tom Cruise; Jeremy Renner; Simon Pegg; Paula Patton; Michael Nyqvist; Vladimir Mashkov; Josh Holloway; Anil Kapoor; Léa Seydoux; Tom Wilkinson; Ving Rhames

There’s high-tech action galore as Tom Cruise returns for an intense and exciting fourth outing as top espionage agent Ethan Hunt. But this time his daredevil character has to transform from a lone wolf into a true team leader, after his Impossible Missions Force crew are blamed for a massive terrorist bombing in Russia, and then disowned by the US president under the so-called ‘Ghost Protocol’. Naturally, Ethan’s determined to clear his agency’s name and prevent events escalating into nuclear attack, but with no resources or backup, it’s easier said than done. To make matters worse, he’s forced to work with a new bunch of fellow IMF fugitives – without knowing if they can really be trusted.

Fascinating Fact:

This is Oscar-winning director Brad Bird’s first live-action feature, after making his name with animated movies including FILMCLUB favourites The Iron Giant and Ratatouille.

Tom Cruise insisted on performing his own heart stopping stunts, including dangling from near the top of the world’s tallest building – the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which is more than 828 metres high and has more than 160 storeys.

Like this? Then also try these great films:  The Bourne Supremacy (2004, 12); The Bourne Identity (2002, 12); Mission: Impossible (1996, PG); Quantum of Solace (2008, 12); North By Northwest (1959, PG)
