Week ending 10th March 2013
Hello there! Welcome to the chart for this week! We have a new number 1 this week. It is Oz the Great and Powerful, classed as a prequel to the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. This new film tells the story of how a magician ends up in the World of Oz and has to defeat the Wicked Witch. This film looks amazing visually. I am so looking forward to this film!

At number 2 we have a new entry with the film Side Effects. The director Steven Soderbergh has said this film is his swansong. It is the story of a woman whose husband has come out of prison but unfortunately she starts to feel anxious and can’t sleep at night. She goes to a doctor and therapist after an incident involving her car and a brick wall. She tries several drugs and after trying a new one, a tragic event happens. Is it because of the side effects of the drug? I went to see this film. I really I enjoyed it. It is many different types of a film, a thriller, drama or the story of drug exploitation by the medical profession. At number 3 is Wreck-It Ralph, still riding high in the chart. It is a good film and I thoroughly recommend for adults and children alike! At number 4 is a new entry with the film Parker. It is a Jason Statham film. The premise is a thief has been double crossed in the past and believed dead. He comes back with a new identity to seek revenge from his old crew and to steal their latest loot. At number 5 we have Mama. It is a jumpy film. I recommend because you think it is a scary film but it will lead you down a different path. You can see that Del Toro, the director of Pans Labyrinth has had an influence over this film. At number 6 we have Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. This looks like an easy watch, lots of action and eye candy. Number 7 is a new entry with The Guilt Trip. A mother and son road trip with Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen. I went to see this film and I found it sweet and funny in places. At number 8 is Safe Haven, a film for those romantics that believe love will save the day. At number 9 is A Good Day to Die Hard, the action film with Bruce Willis still bringing in the audiences. At number 10 is Les Miserables is still holding in the chart. People are trying to catch this film while it is still in cinemas.
I hope there is something for everyone in this chart this week. That is your top ten films for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!
