What deserves a trip to movie theatres

With stories of the legendary Batman making waves around the globe, it’s tough for his ardent fans to hold on for an entire month before the superhero finally descends on to UAE. But, his absence continues to immensely benefit his contemporary, the costumed Spidey, who continues to swing to the top.
 
Among the new entrants, the animated series ‘Tinker Bell’ should keep the kiddies well entertained. And, the 3D format will only add to the fun. Another mystical adventure that’ll keep the older kids enthralled will be Mario Andreacchio’s oriental tale ‘The Dargon Pearl’.
 
With stalwarts like Ethan Hawke and Kristin Scott Thomas taking the lead in ‘Woman In The Fifth’, this a racy story that needs to be heard. It’s got a few credits on the international film circuit to add to its merit.
 
And, like every week, this one too has its quota of spooky thrillers, but ‘Choose’ appears far more rudimentary in its attempt. Save it for a DVD watch, if you must.
 
But, if there’s one movie that should be skipped, it is beyond doubt, the Bollywood entrant – ‘Kya Supercool Hain Hum’. It’s by far, the most ridiculously insane attempt at adult comedy that we’ve witnessed so far.
