Film: A guide to movies in March




March apparently comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb and as far as films are concerned this month we do get off to a roaring start.

Dune Part Two: Let’s just call this one out for what it is. It’s epic, spectacular, action-packed, exciting, tense, a treat for sore eyes, boasts incredible effects, great performances and has a Hans Zimmer score. For me, it’s better than the first one, but then the story is building and building so it probably should be. There is really nothing negative to say. I enjoyed the heck out of it. Everything is pitch-perfect and even the worms are bigger and more impressive this time around. This is how science fiction should be done! I cannot wait for Part Three.

P.S. Is anyone else reminded of that great line from Douglas Adams in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy when looking at Denis Villeneuve’s spaceships he said they: “hung in the air in exactly the same way bricks don’t”?

Lisa Frankenstein is a gory, funny, coming-of-age story There’s a big clue in the title as to what this is about. The Persian Version is another comedy; think My Big Fat Greek Family, only done well. Imaginary is a family film asking the question: “What if your childhood imaginary friend was real?”

Cabrini is an incredible true story of a very determined nun who in 1887 went to New York to open up orphanages and hospitals for the poor. From the director of Sound of Freedom this is a must see. Drive-Away Dolls features two female friends who inadvertently get involved with gangsters while on holiday. King Kong and Godzilla are both back in what looks to be an epic spectacular.

The other big news this month is that the Ghostbusters are back. Frozen Empire takes the popular franchise in a new direction and back to New York. If you are a fan you’re going to be pleased. Mother Instinct is a psychological thriller set in the 60s but for the kids. And there’s a new Kung Fu Panda film to look forward to.

That’s about it for now. Enjoy your cinema trips folks!
