THE KARATE KID (PG) 2pm

USA/China 2010/139mins

Director: Harald Zwart

Starring: Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan, Taraji P. Henson

Was it time for an updated remake of the 80’s classic? Turns out it was as this is a terrific version of the classic story and probably even better than the original. This time though 12 year old Dre Parker (Jaden Smith – Will Smith’s son) has been taken by his

mother to Beijing to begin a new life. But when he gets there he realises that it’s going to be even harder to fit in than he thought, especially with the school bullies coming after him. It is then that he meets Mr Han (Jackie Chan) who teaches him not just kung fu but that peace, though hard to attain, is the correct path.


LITTLE DINOSAURS

UK 2010/1min

Director: Dana Dorian

A five-year-old Scottish boy discusses the best way for a group of small dinosaurs to stop a big dinosaur from picking on them.




THE BE ALL AND END ALL (15) 5pm

UK 2010/95mins

Director: Bruce Webb

Starring: Josh Bolt, Eugene Byrne, Connor McIntyre, Liza Tarbuck, Neve McIntosh

Robbie (Josh Bolt) and Ziggy (Eugene Byrne) think they’ll be best mates forever, but when Robbie collapses on holiday and is diagnosed with a fatal heart condition, forever suddenly seems a lot shorter. Lying in the children’s ward, Robbie only has one thing on his mind: he doesn’t want to die a virgin - and the only one who can help him achieve

his goal is his best friend Ziggy. Both newcomers Josh Bold and Eugene Byrne are spontaneous and charmingly rough around the edges, making The Be All and End All that rare thing; a British film that is frank, unsentimental and often downright funny.


BATTENBERG

UK 2010/11mins Director: Stewart Comrie

Inside of an abandoned house a strange dual universe awaits and a shadowy host with a penchant for collecting sits ready to lure us inside its rooms of curiosity.



MEAN GIRLS (12) 8pm

USA/Canada 2004/94mins

Director: Mark S. Waters

Starring: Lindsay Lohan, Tina Fey, Rachel McAdams, Amy Poehler, Amanda Seyfried 

Cady Heron was brought up in wilds of Africa, she’s more used to the rules of the jungle than of those of the playground, so when her family moves back to America and she is enrolled in school her life turns upside down. When she arrives she is accepted by the coolest clique around, The Plastics, delighted to join them at first will she be able to do all that is necessary to become one or can she find her own individuality? Written by, and starring, Tina Fey (“30 Rock”), this is probably the best of the high school set films since the heady days of John Hughes; it’s funny, has a great cast of today’s stars and is a true classic of the past decade.

A recently deceased Fox has a life after death experience.


AN COTHROM (THE CHANCE) (U) 5 minutes - Tiree High School. Pirates, Treasure and a Map - what more could you ask for in this tale of high jinks.
