Horrible Histories - The Rotten Romans

One for kids and adults alike here, the latest big screen adaptation of the classic comedy history books is definitely our movie of the week. The Rotten Romans delivers regular knockout one-liners and anachronistic references set against an ancient backdrop. The civilised Romans attempt to set up camp in barbarian Britain with Atti, a quick-witted teenager who was sent north when he upset Emperor Nero, leading the way. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 68%

Made In Italy

Romantic Tuscan setting? Check. Crumbling mansion? Check? Two soul-searching Brits looking to renovate the building? Of course. A beautiful local? Valeria Bilello fits the bill. Great, we have all the ingredients for a classic date night movie. Micheal Richardson and Liam Neeson play a father and son duo who head to their empty holiday home in order to do it up and sell it. Why? It possesses too many painful memories concerning a long-departed mother/wife. When an admirer of the house (Bilello) steps in to show them the home’s charm, will they part with it? IMDb gives it 6.2

What happens when a model becomes an assassin? Nope, we’re not talking about a reverse Miss Congeniality. This one is serious. Anna Poliatova (Sasha Luss) is strikingly beautiful and thus often invited to functions in which a normal government agent may raise eyebrows. With access comes opportunity and the agent, after completing her secret mission, ends up in the centre of a whole heap of thrilling action. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 35%

Yom eh Yom La2

A high-concept comedy, ever wish you could take time off from your marriage? How about if it was part of the wedding vows? “To have and to hold every other day.” This is the play Sahar (Pamela El Kik) sells her fiancé Chafiq (ZiadBourji). Scared of high global divorce rates, she proposes a one-day-one-one-day-off marriage where half a week you’re free to do whatever you wish. There are so far no ratings.
