WELCOME TO COLLINWOOD
2002, Warner Bros., 86 min, USA/Germany, Dir: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo

Five hapless misfits from the hard-luck streets of Cleveland band together to try to pull off the greatest score they've ever heard of - an easy crime with a huge payoff. Ironically, when the plan goes awry - as such plans always do - these eccentric underachievers find themselves gaining more than they lose. With William H. Macy, Sam Rockwell, Isaiah Washington and George Clooney.


JOJO RABBIT
2019, 108 min, Dir: Taika Waititi

Writer-director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis) whose worldview is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress (Johansson), Best Adapted Screenplay (Waititi), and Best Film Editing (Tom Eagles).


THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY
2005, Disney, 109 min, Dir: Garth Jennings

Don’t panic - Douglas Adams’ beloved sci-fi franchise arrives on the big screen with its Python-esque sense of humor intact. Everyman Martin Freeman is whisked off of Earth moments before the planet’s destruction to travel across the universe, meeting an eccentric group of characters along the way. This fast-paced and funny film has a cast that’s out of this world, including Mos Def, Sam Rockwell, Zooey Deschanel and Alan Rickman (as a paranoid android), and CGI and creature effects light-years beyond the old BBC-TV series.
