    Zootropolis.
    Went with my husband and twenty-something daughter, so no kids in tow to use as an excuse - but it was a really enjoyable film. Amazing animation and some great ideas in play.

    Cant wait to see this when it comes out in July: the trailer was great.

    This one gives more of an idea of the plot:

    I enjoyed 10 Cloverfield Lane- the sequel to Cloverfield. John Goodman was both genial and creepy!

    Seeing BvsS early next week... not sure about it though.

    Erm... saw Deadpool... excellent family film.

    I don't go to the cinema much.
    However , I shall look forward to this film as it had me laughing out loud.

    I think that the big-screen experience is just the thing for this kind of film.

    Don't. I was hoping the reviews were just exaggerated, but it really was a let down.

    10 Cloverfield was good.

    Hail Caesar was also typical Coen brothers.

    Wouldn't mind seeing either of those...

    Is it just me or does that plot look strangely like Toy Story 1 and 3 mixed together?

    I watched The Revenant yesterday.

    I get that it's art, as opposed to entertainment. I get that it's raw and gritty, well directed with amazing cinematography. I get that the actors went through the ringer and pulled off the performances of their lives.

    But.... I didn't enjoy it! I didn't feel anything but a disattached appreciation for the aforementioned things.

    I have indeed... amazed at how much such a badly reviewed film can rake in at the box office...

    But I shall see soon enough what it's quality is like.

    Off the topic of films for a minute, has anyone seen the Netflix marvel shows? Daredevil and Jessica Jones? They are brilliant!

    It's so long ago that I saw TS1 that I can't remember the plot, and I've not seen TS3.
    You could well be right though: the generic "let's set off in pursuit to save..." plot.
    But the characters just look great!

    Yep, that was exactly my daughter's verdict, too. I go to the cinema to be entertained, not challenged. Shallow, maybe, but it suits me.
    :)

    Well it's established pet/toy threatened by incoming pet/toy who has a circle of friendly pets/toys. Circumstances cause the pets/toys to be separated from their owner and through mutual adventures they come to love and respect each other... and the TS3 bit, a deranged pet/toy who threatens our heroes...

    Still looks fun though!
