Trailer Watch: Which movie should you go see this weekend?

What’s a must-watch, and what’s a miss? We tell you.

PLANNING ON HEADING to the cinema this weekend?

There are a few new movies out, but which is a must-watch, and are there any you should avoid? We take a look.

Which one would you go see first?

Battle of the Sexes

What we know

The real-life story of the ‘battle of the sexes’ tennis match between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King.

What the critics say

  • “It’s not a “bad” film, but Billie Jean King’s story could have been so much deeper. It’s a movie that doesn’t hit nearly as hard as she did.” – RogerEbert.com
  • “In another example of the film’s tendency to do a few too many things at once, Battle of the Sexes is something of a dueling character study, pitting Stone’s driven King against Carell’s boisterous, secretly sad-sack Riggs.” – Consequence of Sound

Daddy’s Home 2

What we know

It’s the lads. With added Mel Gibson.

What the critics say

  • “If you have seen Gibson in promotional material for Daddy’s Home 2 and recoiled, this film is not for you, nor is it interested in winning you over.” – Vulture
  • “The film plods along with a couple of chuckles but more missed opportunities, and benefits from its excellent cast. For some reason the two leads’ chemistry just works, and this sequel benefits from them not being the sole focus this time around.” – Gen of Deek

Suburbicon

What we know

George Clooney directs this film about a seemingly perfect suburb – one African American family are ostracised while in another family, the white husband gets involved in an insurance scam.

What the critics say

  • “The film’s marginalization of its black characters is a meta-version of the very idea Clooney is driving at, but that doesn’t make Suburbicon any more palatable. It’s a high-wire storytelling act that’s difficult to imagine any director executing appropriately, and Clooney doesn’t come remotely close to nailing it.” – The Atlantic
  • “Suburbicon, a jaundiced, hard-sell comedy, wants you to know that the American dream was always a crock.” - New York Times
