ParaNorman shifts itself up to the number one. Replacing The Sweeney from last week. I went to see the film. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Though the film is a children’s film. There are elements for the adults and a very heart warming story. At number 2 we have Killing Them Softly, a mobster film starring Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini. Lots of blood and action, another 18 rated film. Number 3 sees psychological thriller The House at the End of the Street. I have heard mixed reviews for this film. Some people have loved it; others have said it was an awful film. Last week’s number 1 is this week’s number 4; The Sweeney doesn’t seem to have kept the audience it had for its opening week. Number 5 sees Hope Springs going up the chart slightly and has built up its audience. I thought this would be a slow burner. It seems the older generation which it is aimed at has started to go see the film in cinemas. Number 6, Anna Karenina has kept its audience happy. Another slow burner as well. Brave is still hanging in the chart and hasn’t budged from its position of last week. I went to see this film while I still had a chance. I loved it. I’m glad the trailers didn’t reveal too much of the story because I really enjoyed the twists. It felt like a classic Disney film from when I was younger. Number 8, Lawless has dropped down in the chart. Some people have raved about the film; others have felt it wasn’t as good as others made out. Dredd is staying in the chart at number 9. It seems some people have been put off by the lack of 2D screenings for this film. It may be that it may have a larger audience on DVD. Number 10 sees Savages come into the chart. An Oliver Stone film about drugs and kidnapping.
That’s it for this week. Until then happy cinema viewing!
