The Moun­tain Between Us

THIS isn’t so much a sur­vival flick as a dis­as­ter ro­mance. Nei­ther Idris Elba nor Kate Winslet is ca­pa­ble of a bad per­for­mance and the chem­istry between them threat­ens to melt the film’s spec­tac­u­lar snow-cov­ered back­drop. Their act­ing com­pels the story for­ward even when the ac­tion fal­ters.◗ Stars: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Der­mot Mul­roney. Rat­ing :M In cin­e­mas: now.

Home Again

A SIN­GLE mum’s new life in Los An­ge­les takes an un­ex­pected turn when she takes in three un­likely house guests, strug­gles to rein­vent her ca­reer and finds her­self en­tan­gled in a new re­la­tion­ship. This film is full of rom com vet­er­ans, but they can’t el­e­vate this beyond the for­mu­laic. Stars: Reese Wither­spoon, Michael Sheen, Nat Wolff. Rat­ing :M In cin­e­mas: Thurs­day.

The Son of Big­foot

TEENAGER Adam sets out on a daring quest to un­cover the mys­tery be­hind his long-lost dad, only to find out that he is none other than the leg­endary Big­foot – forced into hid­ing by a cor­po­ra­tion ea­ger to run sci­en­tific ex­per­i­ments with his spe­cial DNA. This fam­ily-friendly film is best for the lit­tle ones. Stars: Jeremy De­gru­son, Ben Stassen. Rat­ing :PG In cin­e­mas: Thurs­day.
