AT THE MOVIES #831                DO TRY AND KEEP UP

Simon Morris wonders how up to date we need to be on previous Godzilla and King Kong movies before going to their latest.  And two Oscar nominees – Romanian documentary Collective, and star-studded drama The Father.

Godzilla vs Kong is pretty much what it says on the poster.  Stars Alexander Skarsgård, Rebecca Hall, and Kiwi Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople).

Collective is the Oscar-nominated Romanian documentary about corruption in the health system, and the power of the press.  It’s up for Academy Awards for both Best Documentary and Best International Feature Film.

And The Father has been nominated for six Oscars – including Best Film – this year.  Stars Sir Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman, Rufus Sewell and Olivia Williams, and is co-written by Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons)
