The Invisible Man

SYNOPSIS: THE INVISIBLE MAN follows a modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character. Cecilia Kass (Elisabeth Moss) slowly begins to rebuild her life after the death of her abusive ex-boyfriend (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). But before long, she begins to question whether or not he is truly gone.

Taut and timely – with some seriously committed acting from Elizabeth Moss – this thriller elevates the classic horror franchise to give it a decidedly contemporary feel. The Invisible Man makes great use of sound and editing, to convey some genuinely spooky sequences, but it’s the film’s thought-provoking themes and central performance that make it truly memorable.

•DELETED SCENES

Sonic the Hedgehog

SYNOPSIS: Powered with incredible speed, Sonic the Hedgehog (voiced by Ben Schwartz), aka The Blue Blur, embraces his new home on Earth. That is, until he accidentally knocks out the power grid and sparks the attention of super-uncool evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey). Now it’s super-villain vs. super-sonic in an all-out race across the globe to stop Robotnik from using his unique power for world domination. Sonic teams up with The Donut Lord, aka Sheriff Tom Wachowski (James Marsden), to save the planet in this action-packed hit that’s fun for the whole family.

The ’90s nostalgia continues with this big screen romp starring one of that decade’s most popular video game characters. Sonic actually brings a lot of laughs, aided by some inventive visual effects, and Jim Carrey’s patented ‘rubberface’ antics as the central villain make it worthwhile. Here’s hoping for a sequel!

Emma

SYNOPSIS: Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of EMMA.. Handsome, clever and rich, Emma Woodhouse (Taylor-Joy) is a restless “queen bee” without rivals in her sleepy little English town. In this glittering satire of social class, Emma must navigate her way through the challenges of growing up, misguided matches and romantic missteps to realize the love that has been there all along.

Although this iconic Jane Austen novel has been adapted for the screen before, 2020’s Emma benefits from lush period details, stunning cinematography, and an excellent performance from rising star Anya Taylor Joy.
