Similar to their previous collaborations with director Edgar Wright (“Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”), “The World’s End” features Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as friends coming to the realization that they’re surrounded by hostile forces. This time out it’s robots, who have taken over the town where they and their friends went to school together.
“The World’s End” feels a bit scattershot at times, but fans will consider it part of its “charm”. It’s a film that has a bit of bittersweet nostalgia for misspent youth, a bit of railing against the conformity of the world, and plenty of sequences where middle aged men kick robotic ass.

Opening on Cinemax this weekend was “Paul”, 2011’s Alien comedy starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Seth Rogen.
“Paul” is the story of two British UFO fanatics who come to America for Comic-Con, then plan to take a mini cross-country tour of famous UFO hotspots across the southwest.
They don’t expect to
actually encounter an alien though.
Especially one that talks like Seth Rogen.

“The Adventures of Tintin” is the story of an intrepid reporter and his scrappy dog who get swept up into a global adventure after purchasing a replica wooden ship from a street vendor. Based on the series of comics by Belgian artist Hergé, “Tintin” is the first animated feature to be directed by Steven Spielberg, and his first full length forray into the world of motion capture technology.
His influence is unmistakable, as Tintin takes off on an Indiana Jones-esque adventure in search of treasure. There are wild action sequences, interspersed with family friendly comedy, and an overarching spirit of adventure.
There were a few missing elements for me which keep me from calling it great, but there’s no doubt that anyone who was looking forward to it will be pleased, and it’s well worth your box office dollar this holiday season.

“Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” opens wide this Wednesday, but opened on IMAX screens across the country Friday night. Starring Tom Cruise as IMF agent Ethan Hunt, it’s the story of an espionage team who are set up as the culprits in a terrorist attack they didn’t commit, and subsequently disavowed by their agency and their government. Yet due to their proximity to the events at hand, they wind up privy to knowledge that could stop the real culprits, and prevent nuclear war.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is a hyper-charged action film with a surprising amount of humor.
