YOUR WEEKEND PIC (June 2-4)

(A new posting to help you plan your cinema-going)

1. X-MEN: THE LAST STAND (Comic book fantasy sequel starring Hugh Jackson, Halle Berry & Patrick Stewart) Rated * * * (3 stars): A cure for mutation splits the ‘gifted people’ right down the middle – and the X-Men (and women) have a tough time saving the day. X-travagant action.

2. OVER THE HEDGE (Animated comedy with voices of Bruce Willis and Gary Shandling) Rated * * * (3 stars): A bunch of woodland animals wake up from hibernation to find a hedge in their way – and lots of food on the other side. Wacky fun for the kids during the school holidays.

3. 16 BLOCKS (cop thriller with Bruce Willis, Mos Def & David Morse) Rating * * 1/2 ­(2.5 stars): Willis has to match wits with his fellow cops to deliver a witness to court. Cliched odd-couple flick for Willis diehards.

4. MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III (Espionage thriller with Tom Cruise & Philip Seymour Hoffman) Rated * * * (3 stars): Again IMF agent Ethan Hunt is lured back into covert action but this time there is more at stake. Heart-thumping action all the way – and nice bods too.

5. WE ARE FAMILY (Cantonese comedy with Alan Tam, Hacken Lee and Leung Wing-chung) Rated * * ½ (2.5 stars): A Hong Kong version of 'Meet the Parents' about a guy (Lee) having to go through all sorts of weirdos in his fiancee's family. The best part is that we also get to meet Phua Chu Kang (Gurmit Singh) in Singapore.

Hi Vasu and Cheenayip, thanks for your feedback on the last Weekend Pic posting. I accidentally deleted it together with my reply and so I am replying your messages here, hoping you would get to read it here.
Yes, Vasu, I have been toying with the idea of doing sneak-peeks of flicks that have not been shown here. So watch out for it soon (will be going to Penang for the weekend).
Thanks again and cheers!

Hi Jesscet,
Sorry I am late with the updates. I was in Penang over the weekend and had just returned.
The Omen 666 is a faithful remake of the original, with nothing of value added to it. Worse, it makes disturbing suggestions about the 9/11 disasters and Hurricane Katrina. I would stay with the original. Thanks.
