You’ve got a public holiday mid-week. Amazing. Time to relax and see a film, but what should you see out of all the great geek movies out there right now? Here’s our pick for the best long-weekend movies.
It’s by no means an instant classic, but it’s one of the better sci-fi thrillers — and arguably the most original — we’ve had in a long time.
Suiting up has never been as good as it is in Iron Man 3. It’s littered with perfectly-timed jokes, amazing action sequences, a top twist and more Iron Man armour than you can poke a stick at. Go see this movie.
OK, it’s not out to May 9, but we’ve seen and reviewed it — so we’ll list it here. Star Trek Into Darkness really is one of the best looking sci-fi movies of our time. It’s more spectacular, more beautiful, more action-packed than just about anything I have seen in recent memory. It was always going to be difficult to follow-up the perfectly rebooted universe of Star Trek with a sequel, but JJ Abrams has raised the table stakes once again for every director looking to make a decent sci-fi.
