Vacation (2015)

Director: John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein 


Review: A fair amount of dud jokes and flat beats but a lot funnier than one might expect with a few genuinely big laughs. 

Watch it if: You're ok with some gross out humour.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Director: J.J. Abrams


Review: A few weak moments and one or two convenient pieces of logic aside, delivers with a lot of fun and strong action and emotion. 

Watch it if: You care about Star Wars? 

And if you liked: The Original Star Wars Trilogy, Star Trek Into Darkness, Guardians of the Galaxy

Director: Michael Dougherty


Review: A strong sense of tone and fun with genuinely scary monsters and just the right amount of meanness to really make it land.

Watch it if: You like both Christmas and horror.

And if you liked: Christmas Vacation, Gremlins, The Mist, Tremors, Child's Play
