WEEKEND PIC June 8 - 10

Your Guide To The Weekend Viewing:

1. OCEAN'S THIRTEEN (crime drama with George Clooney, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt) Rated * * * (out of 4): Ocean's gang are out for revenge against a crafty casino owner (Al Pacino) in this 'trequel' that simmers a lot but lacks sizzle.

2. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END (fantasy adventure with Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley) Rated * * * (out of 4): This 'trequel' of the POTC franchise is, as expected, full of thrills and spills. With so many subplots and twists in its 168-minute footage, however, it is a bit tough on our butts.

3. THE NAMESAKE (drama with Kal Penn and Zuleika Robinson) Rated * * * (3 stars): A tender, touching drama by director Mira Nair about an Indian-American lad named Gogol who grows up in New York, torn between two traditions.

4. SHREK 3 (animated comedy with the voices of Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, Antonio Banderas and Justin Timberlake) Rated: * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): This third instalment continues the saga of the green Ogre who discovers that he is now heir to the throne and that he is gonna be a dad! Despite repetitious gags, it is still a fun movie for the kids.

5. THE LAST MIMZY (fantasy flick with Rhiannon Leigh Wryn, Rainn Wilson and Joely Richardson) Rated * * (2 stars): This story about two kids with extra-terrestrial toys that give the super powers is very childish and flimsy, with many product- placement scenes.
