  • Cast: Ben Feldman, Edwin Hodge, Perdita Weeks

When Archaeologist/adventurer Scarlett (Weeks) searches the Paris Catacombs for the Philosopher's Stone, she and fellow adventurers Benji (Hodge) and George (Feldman) find themselves haunted by supernatural goings-on. Pacy and suitably creepy horror enlivened by strong work from Weeks and Feldman, although the found footage element could have been dropped.

When space adventurer Peter Quill (Pratt) finds himself sharing a prison cell with assassin Gamora (Saldana), genetically-modified bounty-hunting raccoon Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and other crims, they must face power-hungry evildoer Ronan (Pace). With a gag-stuffed script, lively direction and outstanding performances, this adaptation of an obscure Marvel comic is enormous fun.

  • 96 min
  • Directed by: Damon Beesley, Iain Morris
  • Cast: Simon Bird, James Buckley, Joe Thomas, Blake Harrison

Eternal teenagers Will, Simon, Neil and Jay head to Australia in pursuit of Jay's lovely ex, Jane (Bewley). Heaving with bad-taste humour, it manages to feel less tired than the first film thanks to energetic direction, honed performances and some truly spectacular stupidity.

The Incredibles

The Incredibles
  • 2004
  • USA
  • 120 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Written by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Spencer Fox, Jason Lee, Samuel L Jackson, Elizabeth Peña, Brad Bird

Bob Parr (AKA Mr Incredible) is an overweight insurance clerk living in suburbia, but this wasn't always the case. Once upon a time he was a popular do gooder superhero, as was his wife Helen (AKA Elastigirl). But one night something went wrong and all superheroes had to be reassimilated into society through a kind of witness protection scheme. The Parrs now have an average family life with some very unaverage kids, but someone is about to test this family's unity to the max. Astounding, witty and funny Pixar animated adventure film that pushes all the right buttons and references all the best films and classic TV series. Let's face it, this may just be too good for mere kids.

Let's Be Cops

  • 104 min

  • Directed by: Luke Greenfield
  • Written by: Luke Greenfield, Nicholas Thomas
  • Cast: Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans Jr, Rob Riggle

Ryan (Johnson) and Justin (Wayans) are two loser flatmates who decide to pretend to be LAPD officers, only to fall foul of psychopathic criminal Mossi (D'Arcy). Some good ideas and the leads' comic chemistry are let down by uncertain writing, misguided directorial choices and sloppy editing, but it's amiable enough.

The Lion King

The Lion King
  • 3 stars
  • 1994

  • 89 min

  • Cast: Matthew Broderick, Jeremy Irons, James Earl Jones, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Moira Kelly, Nathan Lane, Ernie Sabella, Rowan Atkinson, Robert Guillaume, Madge Sinclair, Whoopi Goldberg, Cheech Marin, Jim Cummings

The first Disney animated feature to be based on an original story rather than a traditional folk or fairy tale, The Lion King retains all of the studio's markers: impeccable animation, jolly songs, colourful characters and a strong moral guideline. Solid family fare.

  • Directed by: Luc Besson
  • Written by: Luc Besson
  • Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Analeigh Tipton

Lucy (Johansson) is forced to be a drug mule by crime boss Mr Jang (Choi), but when the drugs leak into her system, she acquires superhuman powers. Insane and largely humourless but ambitious and entertaining action flick, and it's satisfying to see a formidably intelligent and physically ferocious female at the centre.

  • Directed by: Roberts Gannaway
  • Cast: Dane Cook, Ed Harris, Julie Bowen

When perky aeroplane Dusty (Cook) is forced to give up racing, he decides to retrain as a firefighter under crusty-but-fair Blade Ranger (Harris). Gannaway's sequel is better than the dismal original, but even as simple-minded entertainment it's a pity about the sexual and racial stereotyping and broad, male-orientated humour.

  • 3 stars
  • 2010
  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Nathan Greno, Byron Howard
  • Cast: Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy

Disney/Pixar funk-up of the classic tale of Rapunzel that is nonetheless traditional to the core, blessed with catchy musical numbers and a plethora of scenes ripped off directly from the studio's own back catalogue (see Aladdin, Little Mermaid et al). Funny and impressive, but lacking charm.
