Things to do in Dublin; Hunter's Weekend Picks!
Anything good happening around town this weekend? Well, yes, here's our pick of the bunch. Movie: Midnight Special New Sci-Fi release "Midnight Special" has been compared to Spielberg’s Close Encounters with Empire Magazine calling it " A tribute to ’80s classics, but with a 21st-century twist." but looking at the trailer we're reminded more of a M. Night Shyamalan offering, all be it before he went off the boil. This supernatural thriller stars Michael Shannon and Kirsten Dunst as parents trying to protect their young son who has special powers. They embark on a mysterious and thrilling journey. It's also got Adam Driver and a little boy doing the Haley Joel Osment voice from the Sixth Sense, which will undoubtedly up the creep factor to maximum mode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVgxxdu-gJc Event: Grow your own veggies!
