Movie Nights at the Museum

'Star Trek' (2009)
Friday, March 2 2018

Slick, sexy and with enough lens flares to make you put on a pair of sunglasses, JJ Abrams' reboot not only resuscitated the ailing 'Star Trek' saga but set the bar for all future franchise overhauls. It's a fresh-faced Kirk, Spock, Bones and co who are barely out of Starfleet Academy before they find themselves clashing with Eric Bana's dastardly Romulan, Nero.

Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch, directed by JJ Abrams.

'Star Trek: Into Darkness' (2013)
Friday, March 2 2018

As per the title, the follow-up to the 2009 reboot takes the crew of the Enterprise into darker territory, as they race to outsmart the schemes of Benedict Cumberbatch's renegade terrorist and venture into enemy Klingon space. Ol' Cumbo is a revelation here, charismatic, ruthless and menacing. Casting agents: make him the bad guy more often, please!

Starring: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch, directed by JJ Abrams.

'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' (2016)
Saturday, March 3 2018

Wait: a 'Star Wars' film without a single lightsaber or Skywalker in sight? The first of the franchise's new standalone tales could have gone either way; luckily Gareth Edwards' tale of a ragtag group of rebels – lead by Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso – hunting for the plans to that pesky Death Star smashed all expectation. This is a 'Star Wars' for our jittery times, fraught with moral grey zones and brooding anti-heroes. Let's just hope that next year's Han Solo movie matches this.

Starring: Felicity Jones and Diego Luna, directed by Gareth Edwards.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' (2015)
Saturday, March 3 2018

With baited breath, the world waited to see if the first instalment in the new 'Star Wars' trilogy wasn't another 'Phantom Menace'. Thankfully, it wasn't. JJ Abrams proves he's still Hollywood's rebooter-in-chief with this delightful old-school romp, which pairs the old gang with a roster of young characters: Jedi-in-the-making Rey (Daisy Ridley), storm-trooper-with-a-conscience Finn (John Boyega) and Sith-lord-with-daddy-issues Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). Oh, and BB-8, the cutest little droid you've ever clapped eyes on.
