A sequel/reboot/remake of National Lapoon's Vacation, Ed Helms heads this family outing along with Christina Applegate and the sparring children, played by Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins. Inspired by his childhood trip to Wally World, the now adult Rusty embarks on a cross-county trip with the aim to bring his family closer together. But how well do they cope when they come up against raw sewage, stalking truckers and Chris Hemsworth's massive, er, member? And how does it compare to the original film, and contemporary comedy for that matter? Listen to our podcast review of John Francis Daley's and Jonathan M. Goldstein's Vacation, also starring Charlie Day, Chevy Chase, Nick Kroll and His and Hers favourite Michael Peña.

Love him or loath him, Adam Sandler knows how to put himself centre of attention. This film see's him team up with director Chris Columbus, and see's the world get attacked by aliens in the guise of iconic 80's arcade games. Based on the short film by Patrick Jean, Pixels also stars Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Kevin James and Michelle Monaghan. In our podcast review, we question whether we are experiencing peak Sandler, and what is so wrong with modern games anyway?

Critically panned, Fox's latest version of Marvel's Fantastic Four has been taking a beating on all fronts, but is it really that bad? With Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell starring as the titular superheroes, will Josh Trank's foray into comic books mark the demise of comic book movies? Maybe not, but listen to review for a non-hysterical take on this film (with mild spoilers), plus in this episode we have help from The Sports Show host Ross Bell.

Tom Cruise's insurance must of been through the roof in this Christopher McQuarrie directed sequel - we see Cruise's Ethan Hunt cling onto the side of a fusilage, race through the streets of Casablanca and go speeding *sans helmet* on an over powered motorbike. Great stunts, but what about the story? Richee and Layla give their harsh but fair review of the latest Mission: Impossible, which also stars Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson and Ving Rhames.

The latest from Pixar brings us inside the head of 11 year old Riley, who is moved cross country away from her friends, and her personified emotions, Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust and Anger, have a hard time trying to keep her happy. With more than the average amount of intelligence for a kids film, Inside Out delves us into the realms of psychology and philosophy, whole still giving us childlike silliness. Smart, funny and bittersweet, we have to wonder though if Pixar are resting on their laurels. Listen on to find out.

The Marvel cinematic universe gives us a new hero to root for in the diminutive but powerful Ant-Man. With Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, our titular hero. Also starring Michael Pena, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll, Ant-Man is heavy on the comedy, mainly due to it being originally developed by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish. But how does Peyton Reed's finished film measure out? And how much of Wright's original is left in? Listen to our review to find out, and look out for the spoilers after the music.

Seth MacFarlane brings back the bad mouthing teddy bear in Ted 2, along with Mark Wahlberg and Amanda Seyfried. This venture see's Ted battling for his human rights as he is ruled by the government to be just "property". Also staring Jessica Barth, Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson, we discuss the jokes, the opening credit sequence and whether a cinema full of dope-fiends watching a musical would be a good idea.

The lovable Dispicable Me sidekicks are back in their own feature length spin-off. Minions see's Kevin, Stewart and Bob trek the globe to find a new villain to follow, and they find one in Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock). But is she too evil for them, or are they too stupid for her? With Pierre Coffin voicing the minions, the film sure is fun, but does it make any sense? Once again, we take a kids film way too seriously as we look into Illumination Entertainments Minions.

With HBO producing a remake TV show, due to be released sometime before the end of the year, Richee thought it was about time that Layla had her virgin viewing of Michael Chricton's sci-fi masterpiece Westworld. This 1973 classic seems to predict contemporary fears of technology, and produced an excellent performance from Yul Brenner as the proto-Terminater Gunslinger, hell bent on killing anyone who gives off a heat signal. A favourite of Richee's youth, but does it still hold up today? Listen to on to find out.

Twenty-two years after Steven Spielberg's instant classic Jurassic Park was released, we get Colin Trevorrow's long awaited sequel (well, third sequel) Jurassic World. With Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard as our protagonists, they are quite overshadowed by the formidible dinosaurs that we all came to see, including a massive mosasaurus, the genetically engineered Indominous Rex, and the crowd favourite raptors.

California is famous for many things, but one of the things that many people forget is that it is situated on one of the major collisions of tectonic plates, the San Andreas fault. In Brad Peyton's latest film, we see Dwayne Johnson pit himself against the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in the quest to save his daughter. Sounds exciting, right? Or is this just another disaster movie? Also starring Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario and Paul Giamatti, we wonder if this genre really has anything else to say in our review of San Andreas.

George Miller brings his infamous Mad Max character back to the big screen, this time with Tom Hardy taking the reigns as the tight-lipped wasteland survivor. Also starring Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult, we reflect on how this film measures up to the previous Mad Max films, style over substance, and the notorius flame guitar guy.

And then there's the Beyond Thunderdome film with Tina Turner. Do we end the podcast more or less excited for the new film? Listen to find out.

The late Paul Walker and Vin Diesel return in what may be the last Fast and Furious film. Directed by James Wan, we see Jason Statham as bad guy amongst a cast that include Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez and Kurt Russell. A "high octane" film, will this film be too stupid for Richee and Layla, or will they of managed to leave their brains at home. Warning: this podcast review contains SPOILERS.
