    A feature-length version of Belgian animators Vincent Patar and Stephane Aubier's kids' show Panique au village, which concerns the everyday adventures of three housemates living in a very small village. The principal characters are plastic toys called Cowboy and Indian, who share their home with a talking horse called... Horse.

    Ever After (Film) Film icon 4 star rating PG certificate
    Andy Tennant's romantic comedy fantasy is set in 16th-century France, where, following the death of her father, Danielle de Barbarac is assigned kitchen duties in the castle by her stepmother, Baroness Rodmilla de Ghent. A chance meeting with Prince Henry, heir apparent to the throne, leads to the potential for a romance that she fears could be ruined if he discovers the masquerade. A 'fairy-godmother' in the shape of Leonardo da Vinci eventually smoothes the path of true love. But thanks to Barrymore, this is not another soft retelling of Cinderella but a punchy, energetic film with the star in excellent form as the forthright Danielle.

    Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart star in Brandon Camp's directorial debut, which he co-wrote with long-time collaborator Mike Thompson. The romantic drama tells the story of Burke Ryan, who wrote a best-selling self-help manual following his wife's death in a car crash three years earlier. He's currently, under the guidance of his manager Lane, touring a seminar for the bereaved, which has brought him to Seattle, his late wife's hometown. And it's here, at his hotel, that he bumps into Eloise Chandler, the local florist who supplies the establishment's flowers. He's clearly taken with her, but she's quite frosty towards him. Even so, he pursues her - but it soon transpires that, despite his new career, both he and she have a lot of emotional baggage that will need to be dealt with before a relationship is likely to succeed.

    The Social Network (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 12 certificate
    Jesse Eisenberg stars in this highly acclaimed and Oscar-winning fictionalised telling of the tetchy story behind Facebook's birth. Directed by David Fincher, it was inspired by Ben Mezrich's book the Accidental Billionaires and written by Aaron Sorkin, the sharp wordsmith of television's The West Wing. 'You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies' stated the movie's poster, and so it's appropriate that this gripping drama kicks off with neurotic Harvard computer science student Mark Zuckerberg drunkenly creating a misogynistic website called Facemash in revenge for being dumped by his girlfriend Erica.

Taking refuge in a deserted farmhouse with a zoologist who knows the creatures' history, the soldiers must use every weapon at their disposal to survive.

    (500) Days of Summer (Film) Film icon 4 star rating 12 certificate
    Director Marc Webbs' feature debut is a romantic comedy, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, which unconventionally focuses on the heartache of unrequited love. Tom Hansen is making a living writing soppy messages for greetings cards. It wasn't meant to be this way - he had hoped to train as an architect, but that didn't quite go to plan. However, things start to look up when his boss hires a new secretary, the ethereally beautiful Summer Finn. Tom is a believer in true love and, on meeting Summer for the first time, is certain he has found 'the one'. Unfortunately, Summer couldn't be more cynical when it comes to romance. She and Tom gradually find they have more and more in common, but she repeatedly repels his amorous advances. And so Tom recounts in flashback, and in no particular order, the highs and lows of the 500 days during which he attempted to persuade her to ditch her scepticism and embrace love - with him.

    August Rush (Film) Film icon 4 star rating PG certificate
    Kirsten Sheridan's family drama stars Freddie Highmore as Evan Taylor, a musical prodigy searching for his parents. When pregnant cellist Lyla Novacek was hit by a car, her controlling father and manager told her she'd lost the baby; in reality she gave birth prematurely and her father sent the infant to an orphanage. Eleven years later, when Evan finds out that his parents are alive, he sets out to locate them, taking inspiration from the music around him. The heart of the film is Evan's almost mystical ability to 'feel' music, a challenging concept that is rendered believable thanks to inventive work from the composer of the main score, Mark Mancina. August Rush also stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Evan's rock singer father, and Robin Williams as a modern day Fagin who Evan meets during his search for his family.

    Aly Michalka, Vanessa Hudgens and Gaelan Connell star in director Todd Graff's well-received music comedy. Will Burton has just moved with his mum to Lodi, New Jersey. He's a bit of an outsider but is keen to make friends, and so eagerly snaps up the opportunity to manage former cheerleader Charlotte Barnes's band. She in turn is out to inflict defeat on the band led by her one-time boyfriend Ben Wheatley in the annual Bandslam competition. Will also strikes up a friendship with the more introverted, indie-loving Sa5m, leaving his heart divided. The film eschews the normal pitch-perfect blandness often associated with the genre for a more winning warts-and-all presentation of the teens' musical output - and a believable portrait of their lives. Also featuring a cameo from a musical legend who should make Will's eyes light up.

    In the comedy that he both wrote and directed, Jerry Lewis stars as Julius Kelp: a socially awkward, unkempt university science professor.

Kelp's alter ego, Buddy Love, is suave, sophisticated and a big hit with the students, especially Stella Purdy, with whom Love becomes amorously entangled. But the price for the Professor's new-found popularity is an extraordinary arrogance, and a tendency for the effects of his potion to wear off at the most inopportune times. How will Love's new buddies react when Kelp's secret is out?

Eventually allowed to land on the planet, the occupants are confined to District 9, a shabby outlying suburb. Now, around 20 years later, the entire population of 'prawns', as the aliens have offensively been labelled, are to be moved to a distant detention camp, with Afrikaner bureaucrat Wikus van de Merwe placed in charge of their relocation.
    Director: Neill Blomkamp
    Starring: Sharlto Copley, Jason Cope, Nathalie Boltt, Sylvaine Strike, Elizabeth Mkandawie, John Sumner

    Kristen Stewart stars in Catherine Hardwicke's adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling series of romantic fantasy novels about a teenage girl who falls in love with a vampire. When her mother remarries, Bella Swan moves to Washington State to live with her father Charlie. There, in the small, perpetually wintry town of Forks, she starts her new life, though she has no inkling of quite how different it's going to be. At her new school she quickly establishes herself as both a bit of a klutz and a hunk magnet. But she's not interested in most of the guys, apart from the moodily handsome, ashen complexioned Edward Cullen. And when he saves her from various threatening situations, their mutual attraction is sealed. There's just one problem: he's a vampire. But although Edward and his undead family are 'vegetarians' who don't feed on humans, his breed find it very difficult to control their overwhelming desire for human blood when their emotions switch from love to lust.

    El Topo (Film) Film icon 4 star rating 18 certificate
    Chilean-French director Alejandro Jodorowsky's radical re-imagining of the western is an extraordinary, head-spinning tale of a lone gunman's journey to defeat four foes. But that's about where any comparison to other westerns must end. Our black-clad 'hero' El Topo, accompanied by a naked boy, sets out on his quest, during the course of which there are a bewildering array of references to belief systems from around the world and across time, many strange, fetishistic goings-on - and quite a bit of spilt blood. It's likely a modern audience will be viewing the film in rather different state to the dropped-out, tuned-in American hippies for whom Jodorowsky's work became the ultimate 'midnight movie' when it was first released. But the imagery and plot are bizarre enough to make you think someone may have spiked your drink anyway.
    Director: Alejandro Jodorowsky
    Starring: Alejandro Jodorowsky, Brontis Jodorowsky, José Legarreta, Alfonso Arau, José Luis Fernández, Alf Junco
    (Subtitles, Subtitled, In Spanish with English Subtitles, 1970, 18, 4 Star)
