    Bullhead (Film) Film icon 15 certificate
    Michael R Roskam's Oscar-nominated Belgian crime thriller starring Matthias Schoenaerts. It was always going to end up this way for Jacky Vanmarsenille - pumped up on drugs and deeply embroiled in the murky side of the Belgian cattle industry. An appalling, shockingly violent incident in young Jacky's life ensured his life-long dependency on steroids, which also guaranteed his muscle-bound physique and a hair-trigger predisposition to rage. And his birth into a family of cattle farmers who've long blithely ignored growth-hormone regulations inevitably meant he'd have more than a little contact with gangsters and dodgy vets. But the murder of a policeman who was investigating the hormone trade could spark a chain of events that will drag Jacky under for good. Schoenaerts, in his feature debut, gives a stellar performance as the steroid-fuelled, contradictory bundle of violence and empathy, whose story is told alternately in linear narrative and flashback.

    In the Mood for Love (Film) Film icon 4 star rating PG certificate
    Wong Kar-Wai's Cannes award-winning film, set in 1960s Hong Kong, deals with adultery, focusing not on the guilty couple, but instead on the injured spouses. Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung become attached through their shared misery but never dare speak about their mutual attraction because of their partners' betrayals. Achingly emotional, beautifully played and exquisitely shot, Kar-Wai takes a simple tale but gives it a resonance that proves him a master film-maker.

    (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 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.

    Escape From Alcatraz (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 15 certificate
    Clint Eastwood stars in Dirty Harry director Don Siegel's prison break classic, which is based on a real-life attempt to do what was supposed to be impossible: escape from Alcatraz, the notorious island penitentiary off the Californian coast. Frank Morris has been transferred to Alcatraz after persistently attempting to escape from mainland jails. Officials believe that, on The Rock, he'll cause them no further grief while serving his life sentence. But, constantly harassed by the prison warden and fellow convicts, Morris has other ideas. He shares his plans with three other prisoners - Clarence and John Anglin and Charley Butts - and together they gradually set about making their strike for freedom... The director ditches the standard prison-break flick's obsession with action for a more considered, suspenseful focus on the why and how of their bid.

    Bronson (Film) Film icon 3 star rating 18 certificate
    Tom Hardy stars in Nicolas Winding Refn's disturbing, stylised biopic, which recounts the ignoble, incarcerated life of the man who has been dubbed Britain's longest-serving and most violent prisoner: Charles Bronson. Though from a good background, Michael Peterson quickly developed a gourmand's taste for violence and illegality. He changed his name to Charles Bronson at the behest of a bare-knuckle boxing promoter, and was imprisoned for seven years in 1974 for his part in an armed robbery. Since then he's had a total of four months of liberty; the rest of his time has been behind bars, mostly in solitary confinement; ever-extending his sentence through persistent brutal attacks on prison guards, hostage-taking, and attempts to kill and maim.
    Director: Nicolas Winding Refn
    Starring: Tom Hardy, Matt King, Kelly Adams, Katy Barker, Edward Bennett-Coles, June Bladon
    (Subtitles, Audio Described, 2009, 18, 3 Star)


    The Keep (Film) Film icon 4 star rating 18 certificate
    Before Manhunter, Heat and The Insider, Michael Mann made this fascinatingly original horror movie, casting Nazis as the 'good guys'. A group of soldiers hole up in ancient fortress in the Carpathian Mountains, an ideal defensive spot. But they unwittingly unleash an ancient evil, whose plans make Hitler's regime look relatively benign.
    Director: Michael Mann
    Starring: Scott Glenn, Alberta Watson, Jrgen Prochnow, Robert Prosky, Gabriel Byrne, Ian McKellen
    (Subtitles, 1983, 18, 4 Star)

    Meet Me in St Louis
    Sentimental musical about a close-knit family who learn the father of the household has been promoted to a better job in New York, But they struggle to come to terms with the prospect of leaving their friends behind, and are horrified to realise they may all miss the World's Fair to boot - while teenage daughter Esther faces the abrupt termination of her romance with the boy next door. Judy Garland, Tom Drake and Margaret O'Brien star in this sparkling MGM offering, boasting memorable musical numbers including The Trolley Song, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and The Boy Next Door. Directed by Vincente Minnelli, who was so determined to get a properly anguished performance from youngster Margaret O'Brien that he told her a family pet had been killed, ensuring floods of tears on cue

    Halls of Montezuma
    Exciting World War Two action adventure boasting plenty of pace, about a US Marine unit's experiences while fighting in the Pacific. They're ordered to capture Japanese troops so they can be interrogated for information about a new weapon base - but the mission proves far more difficult than expected. Richard Widmark, Jack Palance, Reginald Gardiner, Robert Wagner and Karl Malden star

    Intriguing Western adventure, starring Guy Madison as a cowboy about to be hanged for a murder he didn't commit. Salvation from the gallows comes in the shape of female fur trader Rhonda Fleming who offers him a deal - she'll arrange his freedom if he marries her, insuring an inheritance, then never sees her again. However, once he's free, the second part of the deal proves harder than expected. Loosely based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, and also starring James Griffith and Don Beddoe

    Carry On Behind
    Comedy about an archaeological dig, carried out by a pair of professors, which is disrupted by the saucy shenanigans and naughtiness of a motley bunch of holiday-makers in the neighbouring caravan park. This lesser entry in the long-running series sadly lacks the presence of actor Sid James and scriptwriter Talbot Rothwell. Starring Kenneth Williams, Elke Sommer, Joan Sims, Windsor Davies, Kenneth Connor and Bernard Bresslaw

    The Addams Family
    Creepy couple Morticia and Gomez find their unconventional life threatened by a man claiming to be a long-lost relative. When they welcome him with open arms, they fall prey to a plot that could cost them their ancestral home and the family fortune.

Action adventure, the fifth in the The Fast and the Furious series, starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster

    Days of Thunder
    A strong sense of deja vu runs through director Tony Scott's noisy motor racing drama about an arrogant driver out to seize the reigning champion's crown, before a serious crash jeopardises his chances of ever racing again. Star Tom Cruise may be at the wheel of a racing car instead of an F-14, but essentially it's Top Gun with wheels. Lazy big-budget thrills, with Robert Duvall, Randy Quaid, John C Reilly and Cruise's future wife Nicole Kidman

    Ice Age
    Acclaimed cartoon adventure, in which a mismatched trio of prehistoric animals join forces to return a human infant to its tribe.

    Honey, I Blew Up the Kid
    A loopy scientist perfects a device for enlarging any object - but unfortunately, his two-year-old son accidentally gets the treatment and goes on the rampage through the streets of Las Vegas.

    Holy Man
    TV evangelist Eddie Murphy is hired to boost the ratings of a downmarket shopping channel - but as viewing figures soar and the preacher's fame grows, he begins to realise he's betraying his principles.

Harvey Keitel, Tia Carrere, Tatjana Patitz and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa also appear
