CATCH ME DADDY
Laila (Sameena Jabeen Ahmed) a girl in her late teens has run away from her very strict Asian family with her English drifter boyfriend Aaron (Connor McCarron). Shacked up together in a Yorkshire town on the edge of the moors; they live hand to mouth to simply exist. Aaron is AWOL from the army, while Laila’s family won’t let her run without a fight. Two carloads of bounty hunters roll into town asking questions and flashing a photo of Laila; hard men hired by Laila’s father with her brother in tow to find her to bring her to heel for dishonouring the family.
Catch Me Daddy is an extremely gripping, disturbing and harrowing film and with an ending so open as to what happens after the camera’s leave the scene it will certainly cause lots of discussion and stay with you a long while after you’ve left the cinema.

THE BOY NEXT DOOR
When a handsome, charming teenager named Noah (Ryan Guzman) moves in next door, newly separated high-school teacher Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) encourages his friendship and engages in a little bit of harmless, or so she thinks, flirtation. Although Noah spends much of the time hanging out with Claire’s son, the teen’s attraction to her is palpable. One night, Claire gives in to temptation and lets Noah seduce her, but when she tries to end the relationship, he turns violent.
Jennifer Lopez isn’t known for making great movies and I’m afraid this isn’t going to change that fact, this is nothing more than a cheesy, laughable, awful, lazy and low budget psychological thriller that really if they had to make it should have gone straight to DVD.

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL.
The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai).
Jam packed full of British actors such as Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Maggie Smith oh and Richard Gere (randomly), this is one sequel that’s actually worthy. It’s warm, positive and has humour in abundance of course it has its flaws but its sassy and extremely watchable.
