X-Men: Apocalypse ... Normal stuff

A FOREIGN megalomaniac has come back from the dead and wants to destroy the world.
He also wants
to rid the world of false gods.A mutant joins the dark side because his family was killed. A frenetic finale with swirling weather conditions forms the background for the epic battle between good and evil.
  Blockbuster films stick to the tried-and-tested path of previous blockbuster films, and director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse is no different. It introduces us to the new brats on both sides of the divide, and gives us a baddie whose name is a mouthful, En Sabah Nur (Oscar Isaac).

Bad Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising ... Sexual warfare

SOME people would have had bad experiences with noisy and inconsiderate neighbours. I know of a
man who tortured his neighbours for four months while renovating his house. His workers' incessant drilling forced his neighbours to flee their house during the day and to return only when the workers left in the evening.
   I believe this is why people can relate to director Nicholas Stoller's Bad Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the sequel to his Bad Neighbors (2014).  The humour is as raucous and bawdy as the first film's, but there are two themes in this sequel that will touch viewers.

Summer Camp ... 20-minute zombies

ZOMBIE films are pretty straightforward. People get infected by something, they turn into raving lunatics and go on a rampage. These zombies remain in that state for a considerable amount of time, unless they're injected with an antidote.
  Italian director Alberto Marini's Summer Camp turns this idea on its head by allowing three people to each be a zombie for 20 minutes. This allows each to display how loud his roar can be, how fast he can run and how hard he can hit against a door.
