WEEK IN MOVIES
WITH LEIGH PAATSCH
Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci are childhood friends who rise through the ranks of organised crime without the proper pedigree. Once again, a lack of respect for the time-honoured ways of the mob telegraphs their demise. Co-stars Sharon Stone and James Woods.
STAR WARS: EPISODE III – REVENGE OF THE SITH 7PM, SEVEN George Lucas wraps up his second Star Wars trilogy in fine style. As Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) succumbs to the dark side of the Force and the last crucial pieces of the epic mythological jigsaw fall into place, an awesome power takes hold and nothing is held back. Yes, it is violent (parents with primary schoolers should take heed) and the flaws of the last two films are still in evidence, but the grandeur, excitement and magic of the Star Wars experience remain intact. Co-stars Ewan McGregor and Natalie Portman.
Armed and dangerous: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star in HotFuzz, a comedy from the makers of zombie spoof ShaunoftheDead.
