It's the last week in February and there's nothing much new to rush out and see over the weekend, there are three releases in the UK, so let's take a look at them:


Sacha Baron Cohen's latest comedy centers on a football hooligan and family man named Nobby who has been searching for his younger brother for 28 years, but when the two reunite, he discovers that his brother is a secret agent for the MI6.

I saw Grimsby last night, and it's not very good. The comedy is outrageous and so over the top that fans of Bruno and The Dictator may find some enjoyment, but what Grimsby really lacked was the intelligence of Baron Cohen's most popular film; Borat. Saying that though, I did laugh in Grimsby because it is so stupid but some of the scenes are so outrageous it's almost impossible not to laugh. Check out my full review here.

The Forest

Natalie Dormer stars as a woman searching for her twin sister in the Suicide Forest of Japan. She knows she's alive and is desperate to find her, but upon entering the forest she encounters a supernatural entity that won't let her leave without a fight.

The Forest has an intriguing concept, but it falls short of its potential due to a total lack of actual frights and compelling characters. You can check out my full review here.

Secret In Their Eyes

Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor (Triple 9), Julia Roberts (August: Osage County) and Nicole Kidman (Paddington), Secret In Their Eyes is the story of a tight-knit team of rising investigators, along with their supervisor, is suddenly torn apart when they discover that one of their own teenage daughters has been brutally murdered.

With this cast, Secret In Their Eyes should have been something to watch, but when it opened in the U.S late last year, it opened to poor reviews and currently stands at 41% on Rotten Tomatoes and isn't getting a very big release in the UK this weekend.

There's nothing worth watching hitting UK cinemas this weekend. Deadpool is still playing which is definitely worth a watch if you haven't already checked it out already and Triple 9 which released last week is still in some theaters, and that's an entertaining heist thriller from director John Hillcoat (Lawless, The Road).
