5 movies to add to your watch list

Set design in Of Mice and Men is sparse, but very effective

Now that the Academy Awards have passed, we’re putting aside the serious movies and returning to what we love the most: pure entertainment! We’re looking at current films and upcoming movies that are definitely worthy of your attention, from sci-fi blockbusters to family favourites.

Cinemas update their schedules weekly, so be sure to check show times with your local favourite.

We’ve taken a quick peek and Odeon (Tunbridge Wells), Kino (Hawkhurst), Everyman (Oxted), Stag Theatre (Sevenoaks) and Picture House (Uckfield) are all good bets for the films on this list.

Finding Your Feet – Out 23 February

With an incredible British cast, Finding Your Feet sees snobby Sandra (Imelda Staunton) discovering how to let her hair down after discovering her husband of forty years (John Sessions) has been having an affair. It promises to be a funny and uplifting flick that will appeal to fans of the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. We reckon this is the perfect film to relax with a glass of wine, so factor this into your decision of where to catch this fun film.

Peter Rabbit – Out 16 March

This loveable and mischievous bunny holds a nostalgic place in all our hearts and this live-action reimagining of Beatrix Potter’s most famous character is a great way to introduce the classic to your children. The book may be over 100 years old, but there’s nothing stuffy here. As with the incredibly popular Paddington this is a contemporary vision of a classic franchise that is certain to get your youngsters giggling.





Pacific Rim Uprising – Out 23 March

The original Pacific Rim (2013) was a surprising hit when it came out, offering blistering action, engaging sci-fi and combining it with incredibly stylish effects. When Pacific Rim Uprising releases in cinemas on 23rd March, it promises to be bigger and better, and with John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) taking the lead, we know it’s going to be good.


Ready Player One – Out 28 March

It’s a good month for fans of sci-fi, Stephen Spielberg’s Ready Player One joins the roster of effects-laden movies that’ll certainly give your eyeballs a workout. In the year 2045, virtual worlds offer humanity an escape from reality, limited only by the player’s imagination. When the inventor sets a challenge to find an heir, Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) and his friends are thrust into a dangerous treasure hunt, where the risks they take have far greater consequences than they could have predicted. With a legendary director at the helm, we have high hopes for this movie that is sure to appeal to fans of The Hunger Games and Maze Runner.


Isle of Dogs – Out 30 March

In the near future, Japan banishes all dogs to an uninhabited island, after dog flu threatens the human population. Desperate to bring his pet home, a young boy, Atari, makes the dangerous journey to the island and, teaming up with a pack of exiled dogs, begins his quest to find his friend. From acclaimed director Wes Anderson, Isle of Dogs has a distinctive style made all the more quirky by its use of traditional stop-motion animation, and while perhaps not everyone’s cup-of-tea, we think this is one animation set to enter the mainstream when it’s released at the end of March.
