With the USS Enterprise destroyed, he, Kirk, Scotty and Dr McCoy have been in exile on Vulcan, awaiting trial for disobeying orders. However, as they approach Earth, a mysterious probe wreaks havoc with the planet's climate. The probe's message, interpreted by Spock, is meant for humpback whales only. But humpback whales have long been extinct, so the planet's only hope is for Spock and his team to travel back in time, in a stolen Klingon craft, to bring back a pair of whales. The script allows for a lot of fish-out-of-water jokes as the crew find themselves in 1980s San Francisco, with Spock's inability to master swearing a running gag, but there's also tension, as the clock ticks down in the future, with marine biologist Gillian Taylor their best hope of finding suitable whales to save a future Earth.

    Funny Games (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 18 certificate
    Michael Haneke's American remake of his 1997 German thriller loses none of the terror or horror of the original in this translation. An all-American family - George, Ann and son Georgie - arrive at their summer cottage for a yachting holiday. Two polite young men, Paul and Peter introduce themselves as neighbours but suddenly and brutally instil a nihilistic, sadistic regime on the family, playing mind games and torturing them. Haneke famously makes the audience complicit to events, boldly breaking the fourth wall, and while the violence largely happens off screen it remains horribly audible throughout.
    Director: Michael Haneke
    Starring: Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, Michael Pitt, Brady Corbet, Devon Gearhart, Boyd Gaines

    Nostalgia for the Light (Film) Film icon 4 star rating 12 certificate
    Chilean director Patricio Guzman's film is a poetic and moving documentary about searching for the past. It explores how the lofty altitude and arid conditions of Chile's Atacama Desert have seen the area, far from any light pollution, become a magnet for astronomers. But Guzman also weaves in to his narrative the region's inescapably dark recent past. The film's title is derived from that of a book by French scientist Michel Cass?, which reflects upon how, just as the Atacama was set to become a global centre for modern astronomy, a USA-backed coup brought General Augusto Pinochet to power and closed off the country from the rest of the world.

Both now struggling to make their way in the worlds of business and literature, they meet up to discuss their childhood. At school, the pair were designated as members of a nerdy underclass called the 'pigs' and relentlessly, viciously picked upon by a clique of tormentors known as the 'dogs'. Salvation, or at least survival, for the 'pigs' came in the form of the worryingly troubled, extremely bellicose Chul, a former classmate who, despite having dropped out of school, takes cruel satisfaction in gorily avenging the 'dogs' misdeeds.

    Benda Bilili! (Documentary) 12 certificate
    Renaud Barret and Florent de la Tullaye's inspirational documentary tells the story of Staff Benda Bilili, a band formed in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, from an alliance of street kids and four older men left paraplegic after contracting poliomyelitis in their youth. From extremely humble beginnings in the chaos and criminality of one of the African continent's great musical hotbeds, the film follows the band members as they take their rousing, rootsy style of music, played partly on home-made instruments, from the backstreets of their home city to the enthusiastic audiences they encounter on their subsequent European tour.

    A Letter to Elia (Documentary) 12 certificate
    Co-directors Martin Scorsese and Kent Jones pay tribute to Elia Kazan, the trailblazing director of such landmark American movies as A Streetcar Named Desire, On the Waterfront and East of Eden. The inspirational director's career is traced from Broadway, where he was one of the founders of Method acting, to Hollywood, where he cemented Marlon Brando's screen reputation and helped to make James Dean a star. Scorsese and Jones' affection for their subject is clear, and this documentary is amply illustrated with clips from the three-time Oscar winner's films, as well as interview footage with Kazan himself.

    Compliance (Film) Film icon 15 certificate
    Pat Healy, Ann Dowd and Dreama Walker star in writer-director Craig Zobel's extremely disturbing fact-based thriller that explores the power we invest in figures of authority. Middle-aged Sandra works for the ChickWich fast-food chain as a manager. One day, she takes a phone call from a man identifying himself as Officer Daniels. Daniels tells Sandra he has received a complaint that a blonde member of her staff has stolen money from a customer. He tells Sandra that, until the police arrive, she should isolate the culprit and await further instructions. Used to unquestioningly following her company's commands and instantly identifying her twentysomething colleague Becky as the only person fitting the description given by Daniels, Sandra complies.

    Perrier's Bounty (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 15 certificate
    Ian Fitzgibbon's comedy crime thriller starring Cillian Murphy, Jodie Whittaker and Jim Broadbent. Michael is left with a bounty on his head following his non-payment of a debt to - and a rather more serious misunderstanding with - some particularly nasty Dublin gangsters, led by Darren Perrier. Understandably, Michael isn't keen to hang around and let the mobsters claim their prize easily, so he goes on the run, taking along his neighbour Brenda and his father. But Brenda knows more than she's letting on, and Michael's father has been, well, rather erratic of late. Neither of these factors improves Michael's chances of survival. The cast also features Gabriel Byrne as the voice of the Grim Reaper.
    Director: Ian Fitzgibbon
    Starring: Gabriel Byrne, Cillian Murphy, Michael McElhatton, Don Wycherley, Jodie Whittaker, Brendan Coyle

The principal characters are plastic toys called Cowboy and Indian, who share their home with a talking horse called... Horse.
