It’s the Vodafone Hibiscus Festival week in Suva. For most people around the country it would be another weekend of watching movies to entertain themselves. So we’ve got together these latest DVD releases from Tribute, which should be available at your DVD store.

THE GIVER

Current rating:   ******

Every person in the world has been chosen to have a specific role in the perfect world. Teenager Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) has been chosen to be the receiver of memories and he goes into training with a man called The Giver (Jeff Bridges).

Soon after, with the help of The Giver, Jonas uncovers the truths of the “real” world, how many years earlier people gave up humanity in order to maintain a stable society. Based on the book by Lois Lowry.

BOYHOOD

Current rating: ******

In 2002, Richard Linklater cast a six-year-old boy to play a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane). Using the same cast from start to beginning, Linklater wrote and directed this groundbreaking story of a little boy growing from six to 18 before our eyes.

We watch as he goes through the ordinary passages of boyhood, from learning how to play football and riding a bicycle, to more complicated things such as discovering girls, trying alcohol and discovering what he wants to do with his life.

LET’S BE COPS

Current rating:   ******

When two best friends (Damon Wayans Jr., Jake Johnson) dress as police officers for a costume party, they become instantly famous in the neighborhood.

However, these non-cops soon find themselves tangled in the real life world of crime, mobsters and dirty cops.

THE EXPENDABLES 3

Current rating: ******

Barney (Sylvester Stallone) comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), with whom he co-founded The Expendables years earlier. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought.

Stonebanks is now making it his mission to put an end to The Expendables.

Barney decides he has to fight old blood with new blood and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy.

MUPPETS MOST WANTED

Current rating:   ******

While the Muppets go on a world tour of the biggest cities in Europe, they find themselves in the middle of a conflict headed by none other than the biggest criminal in the world, Constantine, who’s a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog.

Helped by his sidekick, Dominic (Ricky Gervais), Constantine forcefully switches places with Kermit. Meanwhile, Kermit is mistaken for the criminal and sent to jail. Constantine joins the gang without any of them realising he’s not Kermit.

THE RAILWAY MAN

Current rating:   ******

On an afternoon in 1983, Eric Lomax (Colin Firth), a quiet, middle-aged radio and railway enthusiast meets bubbly Patti (Nicole Kidman) on a Scottish train.

Their courtship is quick and a wedding soon follow, but on their wedding night, Patti finds that her groom has terrible nightmares that almost immobilize him and he won’t explain why.

Patti turns to Eric’s friend Finlay (Stellan Skarsgård), who tells her Eric’s secret: during WWII, along with thousands of other British soldiers captured by the Japanese, Eric was forced to work on the construction of the Thailand-Burma Railway—the so-called Death Railway. When a secret radio he built was discovered, he was brutally tortured by a Japanese officer.

Though it’s decades later, Eric discovers the Japanese interpreter who tormented him is still alive and sets out to confront him in an effort to put closure on his haunted past. Based on the bestselling memoir by Eric Lomax.
