Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
  • 2015

  • 86 min

  • Directed by: Walt Becker
  • Written by: Ross Bagdasarian, Janice Karman, Randi Mayem Singer
  • Cast: Jason Lee, Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Bella Thorne, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Tony Hale

The three squeaky-voiced vermin hit the road on a mission to stop their owner Dave (Lee) from proposing. A passing reference to John Waters' 1972 cult classic Pink Flamingos, which features an infamous excrement-eating scene, highlights the extent to which this film serves pretty much the same substance to the viewer.

  • Cast: Lily Tomlin, Julia Garner, Marcia Gay Harden

When 18-year-old Sage (Garner) becomes pregnant and decides to have an abortion, she turns to her trash-talking poet grandmother Elle (Tomlin) and the two embark on a road trip. Salty but sensitively shot indie gem with a hoot of a performance from Tomlin and an excellent cast.

Joy, known as Ma (Larson), has been held captive in a shed for seven years by a man referred to as Old Nick (Bridgers). Her five year old son Jack (Tremblay) has never known anywhere else. Their journey to freedom is gripping and emotionally fraught, and Tremblay and Larson are excellent.

Opened in 1912, the Hippodrome may be the oldest surviving purpose-built cinema building in Scotland. Converted into a bingo hall in the 1970s and closed entirely around 1980, this A-listed building reopened as a cinema in April 2009.
