  • Directed by: John Ridley
  • Cast: AndrĂ© Benjamin Hayley Atwell, Burn Gorman

In 1966, Jimi Hendrix (Benjamin), struggling backup musician, explodes onto the London rock scene. Benjamin immerses himself in the title role and deserved a better film. With the Hendrix estate denying the use of his music, excessive camera trickery and a too-old cast, it may be groovy purple bell bottoms, but it's still pants.

  • Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, Patrick Swayze, Noah Wyle, Maggie Gyllenhaal

Mesmerising science fiction fable that pushes the concept of cinematic time travel into a whole new dimension. Its somnambulant teenage protagonist seems to slip into a parallel universe, where a giant demonic rabbit called Frank proclaims that the world will end - in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. This genre-bending film is not only an intriguing meditation on time travel and a deeply disturbing horror movie, it is also a John Hughes-style coming-of-age movie and a black comic satire on Reaganite greed, individualism and Christian fundamentalism.

Princess Anna (Bell) is disturbed to find that her sister Elsa (Menzel) can create ice and snow, but when Elsa goes into exile the kingdom freezes, and Anna and friends must find her. With no celebrity voice-overs or pop culture gags, just a venerable story, good songs and classic characters, it's an old-fashioned delight.
