    Donovan's Reef (Film) Film icon 3 star rating U certificate
    John Ford directs John Wayne in this romantic comedy, which was their last film together. Wayne plays Michael Donovan who, with his ex-Navy pals Thomas Gilhooley and William Dedham, has ended up on a South Pacific island after the war. Trouble threatens their paradise when Dedham's estranged daughter Amelia arrives with news that he's heir to the family's shipping company; but he could lose the inheritance to her if he's seen to be living in an 'immoral' way. As Dedham is away, Donovan convinces her that he's responsible for Dedham's children and, while he maintains the subterfuge, the beauty of the island and its way of life get under Amelia's skin, as do Donovan's romantic overtures.

    Henry Cornelius's very British comedy stars John Gregson and Dinah Sheridan as Alan and Wendy McKim, while Kenneth More and Kay Kendall play Ambrose Cleverhouse and Rosalind Peters. The two men are classic car fanatics and, after completing the London-to-Brighton race, decide to make the return leg a race too. As the men get more competitive and the women more despairing, there are laughs galore, counterpointed by Larry Adler's harmonica score.

    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.
    Director: Elliot Silverstein
    Starring: Jane Fonda, Lee Marvin, Michael Callan, Dwayne Hickman, Nat 'King' Cole, Stubby Kaye

And to complicate matters, Ren falls for Moore's surviving daughter Ariel, who is not as innocent as she seems. As Ren tries to persuade Moore that rock music isn't the root of all evil, a confrontation with both his daughter and the more bigoted members of his congregation give him food for thought in this classic feel-good film.

As surely as the seasons come round again each year, the boy becomes a man and eventually returns, but it isn't the film's plot that engages so much as the exquisite imagery and symbolism with which Ki-Duk explores and explains the cycles of life.

    Micmacs (Film) Film icon 4 star rating 12 certificate
    Dany Boon stars in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 21st-century steampunk revenge comedy. You've got to feel for poor Bazil: his French Foreign Legion father was killed by a landmine and now, years after that tragedy, he's just been shot. He survives the stray bullet, but the projectile remains embedded in his head; it could kill him at any moment, but it's too dangerous to remove. As if that wasn't bad enough, he then loses his job and his home. This dark maelstrom's sole silver lining is the odd bunch of junkyard dwellers - including a human cannonball, a contortionist and the builder of Scrapheap Challenge-style fantastical creations - who take him in. Then Bazil discovers the arms manufacturers responsible for his situation are based on opposite sides of the same Parisian street. A plan for revenge is hatched and the band of idiosyncratically gifted misfits set out to wreak havoc on the two companies... Also starring Andr? Dussollier and Dominique Pinon.

    Molly Ringwald stars in this memorable teen comedy, which marked John Hughes's directorial debut. Samantha Baker wakes up on the morning of her 16th birthday disappointed to find she looks no different to how she did yesterday. Even so, it's her birthday, so at least her family and friends will spoil her rotten, right? Sadly not, for it's also the eve of her elder sister's wedding and, amid all the preparations for that big event, her family have clean forgotten about Samantha's own special day. And things are even worse at school, where the guy she has a crush on doesn't even seem to know she exists, which unfortunately can't be said of the Geek, who is pursuing her with a passion she most definitely does not return... As well as providing the perfect springboard for Ringwald's career, Sixteen Candles also brought Hughes praise for his keen observation of teen language and emotions, which he would put to further good effect in The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

    Heartbeats (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 15 certificate
    French Canadian writer-director wunderkind Xavier Dolan, whose 2009 debut feature I Killed My Mother scooped a zillion prizes at festivals around the world, returns with this tale of amour fou, strongly reminiscent in form and content of Tuffaut's nouvelle vague classic Jules et Jim. The narrative centres on two friends, gay man Francis and his straight friend Marie, and tells the story of their growing obsession with - and competitive lust for - an enticingly attractive blond called Nicolas. The stylish, stylised musing on love, requited and otherwise, is intercut with vox pop from a variety of people recalling the objects of their own intense passions. Heartbeats, like its predecessor, also picked up the Prix Regards Jeunes at the Cannes Film Festival.

    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.

    Little Miss Sunshine (Film) Film icon 4 star rating 15 certificate
    Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris's double-Oscar-winning comedy stars Abigail Breslin as Olive Hoover, who wins a place at a beauty pageant in California. Because money is tight, her family have to undertake the 700-mile journey by camper van. It's probably fair to describe the Hoover clan as dysfunctional: father Richard is a de-motivated motivational speaker; mother Sheryl has her hands full holding the family together; Grandpa has been thrown out of his retirement home for taking heroin; there's suicidal Proust scholar Uncle Frank; and Olive's brother Dwayne is a Nietzsche-worshipping teen who's chosen mutism as a way of coping with his pain. As they hit the road, the mix of feel-good fun and mordant black humour combine with a stellar cast for this indie movie delight.
    Director: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris
    Starring: Abigail Breslin, Greg Kinnear, Paul Dano, Alan Arkin, Toni Collette, Steve Carell

    Writer-producer Luc Besson's Parkour action-adventure sequel, this time with director Patrick Alessandrin at the helm, again features sequence after sequence of stunning set-pieces in which the principal actors jump, bounce and seemingly fly over and around various architectural obstacles. Three years have gone by since Leïto and Damien ended gangster Taha Bemamud's stranglehold over their walled-off district, and also prevented the French authorities from detonating a massive bomb there. But that victory only served to create a power vacuum, which five violent factions have been attempting to fill ever since. Now police captain Damien has fallen foul of the area's drug dealers and has been framed for infractions he didn't commit. Meanwhile, local resident Leïto has discovered that the authorities and city developers are in cahoots, with plans to level the entire troublesome neighbourhood and build luxury apartments over the lot.

    Le Quattro Volte (Film) Film icon 4 star rating U certificate
    Michelangelo Frammartino's quietly mesmeric drama sees the turning of the seasons and the cycle of life through the eyes of an ageing, ailing Calabrian shepherd. The setting is the fields and countryside around an ancient southern Italian village, beautifully captured by cinematographer Andrea Locatelli. And sharing equal billing with the work's near-silent central human protagonist are the goats of the flock he is nominally in charge of, and the man's mischievously intelligent sheep dog. The story also incorporates sections dedicated to a lost kid goat, a felled tree and a charcoal kiln. It's a simple tale that unfolds slowly, with ravishing beauty, but it also leaves the viewer with plenty to think about.
    Director: Michelangelo Frammartino

As the men get more competitive and the women more despairing, there are laughs galore, counterpointed by Larry Adler's harmonica score.

    Fair Game (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 12 certificate
    Naomi Watts and Sean Penn star in this fact-based political thriller from director Doug Liman. Married couple Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson came to the world's attention in 2003, when she was outed by the Washington Post as a CIA operative. Subsequent high-level investigations and revelations revealed that Plame's cover had been blown in a dirty tricks campaign, organised from within the government, which badly backfired. Liman's film recounts how Wilson, a former diplomat who had previously stood up to Saddam Hussein, was sent by the US government to Niger to ascertain whether the African country was selling nuclear materials to Iraq - and how the political spin placed on his report was to spark a notorious scandal; it also, of course, tracks how events nightmarishly unfolded for Plame, as well as the enormous stress it placed on the Plame/Wilson marriage.

    Snakes on a Plane (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 15 certificate
    The film that does what it says on the tin. Samuel L Jackson plays Neville Flynn, an FBI agent escorting Sean Jones, a witness to a gangland slaying, from Hawaii to Los Angeles. However, gangster Eddie Kim has secreted crates of venomous serpents in the cargo hold and when they're released, all hell breaks loose. The film earned a reputation for the inclusion of plot lines from blogging fans, including one now infamous line. Despite the novel approach to its production, David R Ellis's thriller is surprisingly well-acted and tense, with both Julianna Margulies as flight attendant Claire Miller and David Koechner as co-pilot Rick receiving a fair share of the cracking dialogue.
    Director: David R. Ellis
    Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Julianna Margulies, Nathan Phillips, Rachel Blanchard, Flex Alexander, Kenan Thompson

    New in Town (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 12 certificate
    Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr star in this romantic comedy from Danish director Jonas Elmer. Ambitous food company executive Lucy Hill is in two minds when she's assigned to 'streamline' an underperforming factory in snowbound Minnesota. On the one hand it offers the opportunity for another promotion, on the other she'll have to abandon her beloved Miami. But ambition wins out, and it's not long before she's in New Ulm, where she gets a frosty reception from the locals, who unsurprisingly aren't happy that she's arrived to make a number of them redundant.

    Step Up 3 (Film) Film icon 12 certificate
    Rick Malambri, Adam G Sevani and Sharni Vinson star in this dance spectacular. A crew of New York street dancers must win the top prize in a competition or face losing the building where they live and try out their new choreography routines. Along the way, the plot encompasses love stories and even a police chase, but of course it's really all about the dancing - which bursts forth in abundance and enough variety to please any hoofing fan. Indeed, the coruscating dance routines, from a cast composed largely of professional dancers rather than actors, is undoubtedly the film's main strength.
    Director: Jon Chu
    Starring: Rick Malambri, Adam G. Sevani, Sharni Vinson, Alyson Stoner, Keith Stallworth, Kendra Andrews
    (Widescreen, Subtitles, 2010, 12, 2 Star)

    Macgruber (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 15 certificate
    Will Forte, Kristen Wiig and Val Kilmer star in this violent, risqu? action-movie spoof. It's an extended spin-off of a regular Saturday Night Live sketch that in turn pastiches the 1980s TV action series MacGyver. Our bumbling 'hero' is the bemulleted former special ops agent MacGruber, who has a sartorial taste all of his own and a general aversion to using weapons. Having to all purposes retired, he's dragged unwillingly from seclusion to thwart the dastardly Dieter von Cunth, a terrorist who has got his hands on a nuclear missile. But saving the world isn't MacGruber's main reason for taking on the mission: he has unfinished business with von Cunth, who was responsible for the death of his girlfriend; and he's also keen to work again with the foxy Vicki St Elmo.
    Director: Jorma Taccone
    Starring: Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe, Val Kilmer, Powers Boothe, Maya Rudolph
    (Widescreen, Subtitles, 2010, 15, 3 Star)
