  • Ironclad

    Ironclad sees Paul Giamatti as the megalomaniac King John, whose taking of Rochester Castle will guarantee him nationwide power. Cue lots of shouty speeches, long swords and hot oil in this historical bloodbath.

  • Unknown

    Unknown centers around one man’s attempts to reclaim his identity. Though comparisons to Bourne Identity and Memento seem inevitable, this action thriller still manages to generate some heat.

  • Sanctum 3D

    Thriller Sanctum 3D, produced by James Cameron will ensure that cave diving is swiftly crossed off your bucket list, in its tales of subterranean horror.

  • The Hunter

  • The Mechanic

    The Mechanic is a remake of the slovenly ‘72 film starring Charles Bronson as a conflicted assassin. Substitute the unflappable Bronson for a wooden Jason Statham, add a Louisiana setting and blues soundtrack, and you have a Statham vehicle whose only redeeming value is the wonderful Ben Foster.

  • Age of the Dragons

    What could Moby Dick do with less of, I hear you ask. Whales? And more dragons? Well never fear, because Ryan Little’s cruddy adaptation of the novel, starring Vinnie Jones, provides all that and more.

  • Yamla Pagla Deewana

    This Bollywood movie ticks all the boxes. There’s jewels. There’s dancing. There’s more glitter than you can shake a stick at. Ignore the terrible subtitles and a plot that’s holier than Gouda, and enjoy the intertextual extravaganza which manages to reference Kill Bill, The Matrix and the Three Stooges.
