AT THE MOVIES #636 – REBOOTS, RETREADS AND RIPOFFS
Simon Morris looks forward to a year of sequels and remakes, including a new Ghostbusters, Magnificent Seven and – believe it or not – Ben-Hur. This week he goes to the new Disney live-action remake of an animated favourite, The Jungle Book. He also reviews two new titles – the New Zealand film Orphans and Kingdoms about a home invasion on Waiheke Island, and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, a comedy set in a rather bigger invasion in Afghanistan.
