There are just two new releases in cinemas this week: Puss in Boots and New Year's Eve.
Puss In Boots - Long before he even met Shrek, the notorious fighter, lover and outlaw Puss in Boots becomes a hero when he sets off on an adventure with the tough and street smart Kitty Softpaws and the mastermind Humpty Dumpty to save his town. This is the true story of The Cat, The Myth, The Legend...The Boots. Don't expect this to be a Shrek, but it might be a bit of fun. I have heard the animation and the 3D is stellar.
New Year's Eve - The follow-up to Valentine's Day celebrates love, hope, forgiveness, second chance and fresh starts, in the intertwining stories told amidst the pulse and promise of New York City on the most dazzling night of the year. I saw it this evening, and as expected, it is not a good film. The cast (which features cameos to the cameos) are wasted on material so uninvolving, and stories so corny and predictable, that it is a surprise as much laughter and pleasantness remains.
Weekly Recommendation: Of these two, definitely Puss in Boots.
