Hi all

It's a mostly adult week at the movies this week, as far as the new 
releases go.

We kick off with last week's number 1 at the US box office, the next 
instalment in the ongoing "The Conjuring" series, and take a look back
at the beginning of the story of Annabelle. 

This week's big release is an action thriller with well-known names but
has had a tepid response from the critics, and even the studio has modest
expectation for the US opening this weekend.

Then Oscar-winning director Katherine Bigelow takes a look at civil unrest
back in the late 1960s, in a film which I thought would be on the art
circuit, but isn't, and in some ways mirrors current events now taking
place in the USA. 

From the South African side we have a comedy about a pair of hapless
friends who get in way over their head with the wrong sort of people. 

We round out the lineup with Charlize Theron's new movie Atomic Blonde
getting a one-week headstart at the IMAX venues (before wide release next
week), and a family drama about whether family or work is more important.

Lastly Bollywood has another comedy for us.

On the previews side, there are two premiers next Thursday night for the 
2D version of Atomic Blonde, and a few at selected cinemas next Wednesday
night for the upcoming local comedy The Bounce Back. See the previews
page and remember to book.

On the business side of things, Despicable Me 3 has now surpassed episode
2, and Finding Dory, and is closing in on The Minions (from the same 
series). It's currently sitting at number 6 on the all-time Top 10 earners
in South Africa.

This came from a U.S. soldier's wife.  It says it all:

"I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as the government
underwent a peaceful transition of power a few short months ago ...

At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism while Donald Trump took
his Oath of Office.

However, all that pride quickly vanished as I later watched 21 Soldiers, in
full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to the President.

It was then that I realized how far America's military had deteriorated.

Every one of them missed him..."

A woman takes her 16-year-old daughter to the doctor.
The doctor says "Okay, Mrs. Jones, what's the problem?"
The mother says, "It's my daughter, Debbie. She keeps getting these
cravings. She's putting on weight, and is sick most mornings.
"The doctor gives Debbie a good examination, then turns to the mother and
says, - "Well, I don't know how to tell you this, but your daughter is
pregnant - about 4 months, would be my guess."

The mother says, "Pregnant?! She can't be. She has never ever been with a
man! Have you Debbie?"
Debbie says, "No mother! I've never even kissed a man, I'm still a virgin!"
The doctor walked over to the window and just stood there staring out of
it.
About 5 minutes pass and finally the mother says, "Is there something wrong
out there doctor?" The doctor replies, "No, not really, it's just that the
last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the east and 3
wise men came over the hill. And there's no way I'm going to miss it this
time!!!!"

A friend hosted a dinner party for people from work, and everyone was
encouraged to bring their children.

All during the sit-down dinner one co-worker's three -year-old girl stared
at the man sitting across from her.The girl could hardly eat her food from
staring. The man checked his tie, felt his face for food, patted his hair
in place, but nothing stopped her from staring at him. He tried his best to
just ignore her but finally it was too much for him.

He asked her, "Why are you staring at me?"

Everyone at the table had noticed her behaviour and the table went quiet
for her response.

The little girl said, "I just want to see how you drink like a fish!"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Sir, your daughter says she loves me, and she can't live without me, and
she wants to marry me."

"No, I'm asking you to make her leave me alone!!"

The father grew increasingly displeased as his teenage daughter and her
boyfriend studied in her room late one evening. Finally losing patience
shortly after midnight, he knocked sharply on her door.
Her boyfriend immediately opened it and asked if something was wrong.

"I have to ask you to move your car," the father told him.

"Oh, sure. Is it in someone's way?"

"No," he replied, "it's parked in the wrong driveway."

Paddy was waiting at the bus stop with his mate when a lorry went by loaded
up with rolls of turf.

Paddy said, 'I'm gonna do that when I win the lottery'.

'What's dat?', says his mate.

'Send me lawn away to be cut', says Paddy.
