    Young Sherlock Holmes (Film) Film icon 3 star rating PG certificate
    Barry Levinson's family drama, scripted by Chris Columbus, stars Nicholas Rowe as Sherlock Holmes and Alan Cox as John Watson, who meet as teenagers at boarding school. Holmes, already developing his detective skills, becomes interested in the seemingly unconnected deaths of prominent men, but by acting upon his deductive powers he places himself and Watson in mortal danger. The influence of Steven Spielberg as executive producer can be seen, with scenes that could have appeared in The Goonies or Indiana Jones, but Levinson gives the film its own distinctive style. Nigel Stock plays an eccentric teacher at the school; he played Watson in the 1960s BBC TV series. Edited for content.
    Director: Barry Levinson
    Starring: Nicholas Rowe, Alan Cox, Sophie Ward, Anthony Higgins, Susan Fleetwood, Freddie Jones

    Baby's Day Out (Film) Film icon 4 star rating PG certificate
    Patrick Read Johnson's comedy, scripted by John Hughes, stars Joe Mantegna, Joe Pantoliano and Brian Haley as Eddie, Norby and Veeko, three inept criminals who kidnap Baby Bink, the son of a rich Chicago family. But while they are negotiating the ransom, Baby Bink escapes and begins to make his way back home. As the trio chase him, the infant manages to avoid a series of violent hazards, which his pursuers run straight into. The film owes much to the kind of cartoon violence that Road Runner inflicted upon Wile E Coyote, where falls and explosions are slapstick rather than fatal, while the interaction of the three criminals carries Hughes' trademark quick-fire humour.

    Arrietty (Film) Film icon 4 star rating U certificate
    Director Hiromasa Yonebayashi's first feature for the Japanese animation powerhouse Studio Ghibli is a charming adaptation of Mary Norton's classic children's tales about The Borrowers. This version takes place in an ordinary house, in an unremarkable Tokyo suburb. Of course, that's omitting one highly extraordinary fact: a family of tiny people live underneath the floorboards of the building's ground floor. The Clocks have a comfortable life, scavenging items from the 'human beans' living oblivious above them, which they beautifully transform into clothes, furniture and the rest of life's necessities.

Aaron Green works for a record company run by the increasingly unhinged Sergio and is a huge fan of the British rock star Aldous Snow. Sergio and Green hatch a plan for Snow to play, in just three days' time, Los Angeles's revered venue the Greek Theatre. Getting Snow from London to LA, via New York and Vegas, should be a doddle. But he's just fallen off the wagon, and the sleazy rocker's appetite for drink, drugs and attractive women complicate the journey so much that it's not clear whether Green will survive the rock star's hedonism. In addition to Combs' superbly energetic turn, Rose Byrne shines as Jackie Q, a role that satirises the record industry's fondness for marketing its female artists as sexual commodities. Also starring Elisabeth Moss, Colm Meaney and a host of real-life music icons.

Spying a beautiful nightclub entertainer, Nicole, who bears a startling resemblance to the late wife of the immensely rich Middle Eastern businessman Mr Shahbandar, he realises that here lies the key to his next scam. Unfortunately, although she's keen to get her hands on the genuine British passport that Harry promises her, Nicole is adamant that she won't do anything illegal for it. But that's not as big a problem as Harry embarking on his latest swindle without having thought through his plan, as is demonstrated by the ensuing series of comic misadventures.

However, what was supposed to be a confidential white lie becomes public, and soon she has the cachet of unprecedented notoriety around the entire school. But it's what happens next that's really interesting.

    The Mechanic (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 15 certificate
    Jason Statham stars in director Simon West's action retread of Michael Winner's 1972 revenge thriller. Arthur Bishop earns his living as a 'mechanic', a euphemism for hitman that betrays the precision and emotional detachment with which he goes about his business. And that even applies when he's contracted to kill his wheelchair-using mentor Harry McKenna, though he does at least demand to know why he should send his friend to an early grave. Things then get awkward for Bishop, when McKenna's son Steve asks if he'll tutor him. Their partnership develops in fits and starts, but Bishop's boss Dean Sanderson makes it clear he's not happy with the nascent partnership's latest assassination. So, with all the main players inherently suspicious, trained killers, and various motives for murder in the air, it won't take much to spark bloodshed - and that catalyst comes with an unexpected sighting at an airport.

    Lady Chatterley (Film) Film icon 4 star rating 18 certificate
    Pascale Ferran's Gallic take on DH Lawrence's infamous novel stars Marina Hands as Constance Chatterley, wife to the disabled First World War veteran Clifford, who seeks her solace with the earthy charms of forester Parkin. While their scenes of amour are explicit, the film teases out the themes of class conflict and approaches Lawrence with a fresh eye that perhaps has eluded the more repressed English interpretations, although this could equally be as a result of Ferran's decision to base his work on John Thomas and Lady Jane, the second of Lawrence's three versions of the Chatterley story.
    Director: Pascale Ferran
    Starring: Marina Hands, Jean-Louis Coullo'ch, Hippolyte Girardot, Hélène Alexandridis, Hélène Fillières, Bernard Verley

    Cat Ballou (Film) Film icon 4 star rating PG certificate
    Lee Marvin won an Oscar for his double role in Elliot Silverstein's influential comedy western, which also stars Jane Fonda. When Catherine 'Cat' Ballou finds out that a corporation is making an aggressive attempt to snatch her father's ranch, she hires the once-notorious gunfighter Kid Shelleen as protection. But she soon discovers he's now a permanently sozzled drunk, and unlikely to be of any use against the developers' mean killing machine, Tim Strawn. But, as things take a darker turn, Cat finds the strength and determination to fight back, by any means necessary. With its mix of daft comedy, songs and classic revenge-western theme, the film is great fun, and it's not difficult to imagine that it provided the creative spark for Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles a decade later.

    Alice Lowe and Steve Oram teamed up to write and star in this dark and violent comedy-drama, directed by Ben Wheatley. They look such an ordinary couple, but these Midlands' lovebirds prove anything but. Chris is the proud owner of an Abbey Oxford caravan and adores few things more than exploring the glories of the British countryside. So, when presented with the opportunity to whisk his new girlfriend, Tina, off to see such heady sights as Keswick's Pencil Museum, Crich Tramway Village and the Ribblehead Viaduct, he jumps at it. Though, to be honest, the sheltered Tina seems keener on the journey's erotic possibilities. But, almost as soon as their odyssey has begun, an awful accident completely changes the tenor of their trip. And, from then on, only the exceedingly unwise do anything to cross the increasingly malevolent pair.

    Director Steve McQueen's Film4-funded award-winning drama focuses on the 1981 hunger strikes by Republican prisoners in Northern Ireland. Michael Fassbender plays Bobby Sands, one of a group of prisoners who first 'took to the blanket' with a 'dirty protest' in pursuit of their claims for recognition as political prisoners. Sands then became the first one of the group to embark on a hunger strike that was to end in his death. McQueen's film captures the reek of the urine-flooded, excrement-smeared cells, the intransigence of both sides and, at centre of the film, uses a bravura extended dialogue between Sands and Father Moran to ask if the strike and the resultant deaths will have any effect at all. This screening is introduced by the director and Michael Fassbender.

    Pedro Almodóvar's drama stars Penélope Cruz as single parent Raimunda, whose life is turned upside down by a murder, which leaves her with a body to dispose of and a crime to cover up. Although she manages to find somewhere to put the body, further complications arise when her mother Irene, presumed dead, suddenly reappears. And when Raimunda takes on the management of a holidaying friend's restaurant - which becomes unexpectedly, and riotously, successful - our heroine's makeshift plans start to look very precarious indeed.

    Ping Pong (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 12 certificate
    Director Hugh Hartford's documentary charts the progress of some of the competitors in the Over 80s category at the 2010 World Table Tennis Championships. Hartford's inspiring film amply demonstrates that youth and vigour really can be just a frame of mind; and that it's not just athletes 50 or 60 years the junior of these players who have a steely determination. While it's not surprising that the gerontic players are, in the main, people who've long been involved in competitive sport, among their ranks is Ursula, a German who only started in her 80s, using the game as therapy to recover from a stroke. Flying the flag for Britain are Les and Terry, who are both fighting off illness as well as the other players; Australia's representative is the 100-year-old Dorothy, whose nemesis may turn out to be Texan Lisa. Hartford's film captures all the sporting glories, disappointments and underhand tactics employed during the event in Inner Mongolia.
    Director: Sori Fumihiko
    Starring: Yôsuke Kubozuka, Arata, Sam Lee, Shido Nakamura

    True Lies (Film) Film icon 4 star rating 15 certificate
    Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis star in James Cameron's action comedy, a remake of the 1991 French film La Totale! - and very much in old school Bond territory. Helen Tasker feels her 15-year marriage to Harry has become as dull as his job in computer sales. However, she doesn't know that Harry's actually an undercover government operative who spends his days battling terrorists and spies rather than flogging IT gear. But Helen picks a bad time to spice up her life with an extramarital dalliance: when he drops in to her office unannounced, Harry overhears her making plans for a date with her colleague Simon. Harry's reaction is extraordinary, to say the least: in a sorely misguided attempt to give her the excitement she craves, he arranges for her to be kidnapped and sent on a 'secret assignment' as a spy posing as a prostitute. But his hare-brained scheme goes awry when his two worlds collide. His daughter is kidnapped by terrorists and only he and his wife can save her.
    Director: James Cameron
    Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton, Tia Carrere, Art Malik

    The Hole (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 12 certificate
    A scary comedy-horror from director Joe Dante about a suburban home that has among its features a secret portal, which would perhaps be best left undiscovered. The house is the new abode of teen Dane Thompson, his mum Susan and his irritating younger sibling Lucas. Kids being kids, it's not long before they've thoroughly explored their new residence - and found the strange, heavily padlocked trapdoor down in the basement. Together with Julie, the girl who lives next door, the unwisely intrepid gang manage to remove the carefully constructed barriers and lift the lid, to find themselves staring into... a pitch-black hole. At first it's not much to look at, but they gradually learn why the previous owner was so desperately keen to keep it permanently covered. Essentially aimed at a family audience, the film delivers enough genuine frights to make its 12 certificate necessary.
    Director: Joe Dante
    Starring: Chris Massoglia, Haley Bennett, Nathan Gamble, Teri Polo, Bruce Dern, Quinn Lord
    (Widescreen, Subtitles, 2009, 12, 3 Star)

    Parents (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 18 certificate
    Actor Bob Balaban made his directorial feature debut with this extraordinary and sinisterly subversive black comedy. The year is 1958 and young Michael Laemle and his family have moved to a small town in Indiana. His parents, defoliant expert Nick and Lily, who spends her days happily working in the kitchen, are aggressively fashionable and dedicated to keeping up appearances. But the youngster is becoming sure that they're hiding something from him. It's a concern that's increased when, half-asleep, he catches his parents in an embrace, which strangely troubles him. At school, he's befriended by another newcomer, Sheila Zellner whose claim to be an alien appeals to his creative imagination.
    Director: Bob Balaban
    Starring: Randy Quaid, Mary Beth Hurt, Sandy Dennis, Bryan Madorsky, London Juno, Kathryn Grody
    (Subtitles, 1989, 18, 3 Star)
