Movie Roundup: A Good Day to Die Hard, Warm Bodies, Breaking Bad: 5th Season, Identity Thief, Escape from Planet Earth, Sadako 3D, The Thing

We've got some great movies in this week's roundup, for all kinds of viewers. If you love to mess with your head with a psychological thriller, jump into nothing but action upon action, follow the rise and fall of a drug kingpin, or just sit back with your kids and enjoy a fun movie you're in luck. No matter what genre you love, we have it!


The Die Hard series has been the epitome of the action genre since its inception, and action is what you'll see in this movie. In A Good Day to Die Hard Bruce Willis returns as  John McClane travels to Russia to help out his seemingly wayward son, Jack, where he discovers that Jack is a CIA operative working to prevent a nuclear-weapons heist, causing the father and son to team up against underworld forces.

With much of the world's population becoming an undead horde, 'R' is a young and introspective zombie. While fighting with and feeding on a human scavenger party, R meets Julie and feels an urge to protect her. Warm Bodies takes the two themes of zombie apocolypse and romance and melds them together, seemingly successfully. The mixture of so many different genre-specific elements, makes this romance quite a bit smarter than your average love story. 

Warm BodiesUS US$ 39.90


The hilarious Jason Batemen stars in Indentity Thief as a mild-mannered businessman Sandy Patterson who travels from Denver to Miami to confront the deceptively harmless-looking woman who has been living it up after stealing Sandy's identity. The movie is your typical comedy, filled with unrealistic, but hilarious, antics the characters fall into. The 'road-trip' theme for comedies is not a revolutionary, nor even new, concept but works quite well in the movie.

Escape from Planet Earth is a lighthearted children's movie at the core. A movie built from the ground up as a movie for the family. On the planet Baab, two brothers Scorch and Gary must go on a mission when BASA's no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary's warnings and bounds off on an exciting, but dangerous mission.

Sadako 3D is a horror film that comes out of Japan, based on and with many aspects from The Ring incorporated in the movie there are still quite a few aspects that seperate it from previous movie adaptations - overall it is a sequel to the Ring franchise, and is commonly refered to as The Ring 3. The movie takes a more modern 21st century adaptation of the book, rather than using the original settings.

Breaking Bad is considered one of the best series on television at the moment, and the fifth season is no exception. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul return in their Emmy-winning roles of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in the fifth explosive season of Breaking Bad. Walt's transformation from a well-meaning family man to ruthless drug kingpin is nearly complete. Forming a partnership with Jesse and Mike (Jonathan Banks), Walt proceeds to make a killing in the meth business until the fruits of his murderous schemes are threatened by a new development in the investigation led by his relentless brother-in-law Hank (Dean Norris).

When paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) travels to an isolated outpost in Antarctica for the expedition of a lifetime, she joins an international team that unearths a remarkable discovery. Their elation quickly turns to fear as they realize that their experiment has freed a mysterious being from its frozen prison. Paranoia spreads like an epidemic as a creature that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish.
