Week ending 24th March 2013

Hello and welcome to the film chart this week!  We have a new number 1. The family film The Croods has knocked Oz the Great and Powerful off the top spot. This new film is the story of a pre-historic cave family who have to leave the safety of their cave home after an earth disturbance to find a new home. A long the way they see new wonders and meet new people. It does look funny and one for all the family. Let us see the rest of the film chart.

At number 2 is a new entry for Jack the Giant Slayer. A different take on the Jack and the Beanstalk story. A family film for everyone with an all-star cast. At number 3 we have Oz the Great and Powerful, still entertaining families before the Easter holidays. The film is amazing! I recommend you go see. At number 4 is Identity Thief, a comedy starring Jason Bateman as a guy who finds his identity has been stolen by a woman in another American state. Instead of going to the Police he decides to deal with the situation himself. Chaos ensues when he meets the woman. Side Effects is at number 5. A brilliant psychological film which will make you think. At number 6 is Wreck-It-Ralph. A fun child’s film but for everyone, based around a video game character, Ralph. Number 7 is a new entry with Stolen. Nicholas Cage stars as a con who is released from prison and wants to mend his broken relationship with his daughter. Unfortunately he has enemy who kidnap his daughter and the ransom is for him to rob a bank for her release. Welcome to the Punch is at number 8. It is a good gritty cop drama with twists and turns. A t number 9 is Parker. Jason Statham stars as a criminal out for revenge on his old cohorts. A number 10 is Mama. Still making audiences jump.

UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

Week ending 17th March 2013

Hello and welcome to this week’s chart! The number 1 has stayed the same, Oz the Great and Powerful. I went to see this last week. I really enjoyed it in IMAX 3D. The visuals are amazing and the 3D is worth it. I highly recommend watching in 3D. Let us see the rest of the chart.

Oz-The-Great-and-Powerful

 

1. Oz the Great and Powerful, £2,609,465: Total: £7,683,699

2. Side Effects, £759,363: Total: £2,277,861

3. Welcome to the Punch, £460,250 (New)

4. Wreck-It Ralph, £426,343: Total: £21,995,949

5. Parker, £308,335: Total: £1,229,889

6. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, £305,936 (New)

7. Mama, £266,521: Total: £5,054,683

8. Red Dawn, £255,448 (New)

9. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, £221,452: Total: £3,178,317

10. The Guilt Trip, £157,016: Total: £814,530

 

At number 2 we have Side Effects. This film is an interesting thriller. I do recommend the film as a good psychological drama. A number 3 is a new entry with Welcome to the Punch. A British cop drama produced by Ridley Scott. The cast consists of a “who is who” of British television actors and a couple of big star British actors, James McAvoy and Mark Strong. I went to see this film and it did feel like a BBC cop drama. It is still a good film just very British with some stylised American camera shots. Wreck-It Ralph is at number 4, still bringing the families in to watch and probably a few adults too! At number 5 is Parker. A Jason Statham film. So think action and punch ups! Number 6 is a new entry with The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. From the trailer this looked really funny with Jim Carrey, Steve Carell and Alan Arkin. The story is the rivalry between two magicians who have been on the circuit for a long time and the threat of the new breed of magician. At number 7 is Mama. The film is very jumpy. It is worth a watch. Red Dawn is at number 8. A remake of an invasion film from the 1980s. This version stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games). This time around instead of Soviet soldiers invading it is North Korean ones. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters is still in the chart at number 9. A good action film. At number 10 is The Guilt Trip. It is a funny comedy and probably sons would recognise and embarrassing Mum is fusses over their sons!

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!
