Home (2015)

If you are a fan of Sheldon from ‘Big Bang Theory’ you will enjoy the film. The world created in ‘home’ is of a passive herd race of ‘boovs’ which have come from another planet to earth. They have made it their home in the friendliest, non-aggressive manner possible.

The adventures of a girl trying to find her mother in a car powered by an ‘alternate’ energy source, accompanied by a menace boov who speaks brilliantly incorrect English (as do the rest of them), evokes some laughs. Rihanna’s songs keep flitting in and out without much impact. Jennifer Lopez has a blink and miss voice and Steve Martin provides the remaining laughs.

What is the purpose of your face?

This is the end (2013)

The biblical apocalypse is upon actors who are playing themselves at a party in Beverly Hills. What ensues is a mix of silly, funny and downright outrageous.

James Franco is playing host to Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera, Emma Watson, Rihanna and many others. It seems like a frat party, which has predictable wild moments. The bizarre events that follow are fun to watch because of the presumed real life personalities and their reactions.

Survival, egos, conflicting opinions, there is a clear build up to a hilarious climax, making it a fun home or flight watch.
