Published Nov 01, 2013Need something to do this weekend to get over your Halloween hangover? Why not hit the theatre and see a film? We've reviewed the week's biggest releases in our weekly film roundup below. Read along, then head over to our Recently Reviewed section for even more new film releases.
Orson Scott Card's classic science fiction novel Ender's Game has been adapted to film by director Gavin Hood. Bringing famous pieces of literature for the big screen is never an easy task, so read on to find if Hood has done justice to the revered novel.
Cool Runnings director Jon Turteltaub has brought together an all-star cast of aging Hollywood A-listers for latest film Last Vegas, while Deerhunter's Bradford Cox makes his acting debut in Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée's Dallas Buyers Club.
Rachel McAdams returns to the rom-com genre in director Richard Curtis's latest, About Time. In the film, McAdams's love interest, played by Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson, is capable of travelling back in time, turning About Time into a sci-fi-rom-com blend.
Finally, Keanu Reeves has made his directorial debut with martial arts film The Man of Tai Chi. While it features many painstakingly choreographed fight scenes and battles, the impressive stunt work is somewhat overshadowed by a lack of visual coherence.
