Forget bachelor parties and weddings. For the third and final chapter of Todd Phillips's alcohol- and drug-fuelled bender, the characters are caught in a race against time to save one of the gang from a grim fate. Alan Garner (Zach Galifianakis) suffers a mental breakdown in the aftermath of his father's more...
Based on the children's book The Leaf Men And The Brave Good Bugs by William Joyce, Epic is a charming fable that could, with clever parental persuasion, inspire the youngest generation to swap their video games for an invigorating spot of housework. Chris Wedge's vibrant computer-animated film reveals a long-standing feud more...
Fast & Furious 6
Blockbuster sequels are not judged on directorial verve, ingenious plots or award-winning performances, although they certainly help. The barometer of success for any follow-up is the ker-ching of box office tills. With the exception of The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift, which foolishly traded in the reliable pairing of Vin more...
Visionary Australian director Baz Luhrmann becomes the first filmmaker in almost 40 years to commit F Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel to the big screen, bringing his distinctive style and youthful energy to a story of smouldering passions in swinging 1920s New York.

Scott Moore and Jon Lucas, co-writers of the first chapter of The Hangover trilogy, make their directorial debut with a raucous and gleefully foul-mouthed comedy that attempts to replicate the boozy shenanigans of their earlier script. 21 & Over harnesses the reckless abandon of three high school friends on the night more...
Forged in the same creative fire as StreetDance and its sequel, All Stars is a resolutely feel-good family comedy about a group of resourceful tykes who take matters into their own hands to stop bureaucrats from wrecking their local community. "If we let adults make decisions for us, we're going to more...
The Look of Love
Headline-grabbing publisher and club owner Paul Raymond had a simple business philosophy: give the public, or more specifically men, what they want. Pandering to carnal desires never did any harm to Raymond's bank balance: in 1992, he was anointed Britain's richest man with an estimated personal fortune of £1.5 billion. more...
Iron Man 3
Now there's a hint of sunshine in our lives, we can actually contemplate the arrival of summer and in the cinematic terms that means the blockbusters are coming. One of the early ones out of the block is Iron Man 3 in which Robert Downey Jr returns as the billionaire-inventor-superhero Tony more...
