28 Weeks Later
Four years after Danny Boyle raised the undead with his bloodthirsty zombie thriller 28 Days Later, acclaimed Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo sinks his teeth into the nerve-wracking, adrenaline-pumping sequel. In many respects, the follow-up is a superior beast, set once again in an eerie, seemingly deserted vision of futuristic London; more...
"The greatest battle lies within..." proudly declares the tagline for the third and potentially final part of the web-slinging blockbuster series, once again directed by Sam Raimi. How very true. The greatest battle for Spider-Man 3 lies within Alvin Sargent's screenplay, based on a story by Raimi and brother Ivan, which more...
The Upside Of Anger
"Anger has turned my mother into a very sad and bitter woman. If she wasn't my mother, I'd slap her. I really would." The wry yet painfully honest opening words of teenager Popeye Wolfmeyer (Rachel Evan Wood) welcome us into the suburban hell of writer-director Mike Binder's beautifully observed portrait of more...
Bridge To Terabithia
While the majority of younger cinemagoers will be swinging into screenings of Spider-Man 3 this weekend, savvier audiences will be immersed in an even richer fantasy world, brought vividly and majestically to life by director Gabor Csupo. Adapted from Katherine Paterson's award-winning novel, Bridge To Terabithia is an utterly charming coming more...

Taking its title from a term used by gang members for people not involved in a crime, Straightheads is a brutal and unsettling revenge thriller that sinks to the same unnecessarily violent depths as its characters. Documentary filmmaker Dan Reed, making his dramatic feature debut, shows restraint in his depiction of more...
"You've probably seen a lot of these shows - mentalists, magicians, illusionists - and wondered if they're the real deal," says Las Vegas conjurer Cris Johnson (Nicolas Cage) in his opening voiceover, as he prowls the neon-lit desert strip. "Your scepticism tells you it's just an act. That way you can more...
Reno 911!: Miami
Now in its fifth season on American television, Reno 911! is a spoof of the popular reality series Cops, bringing a touch of soap opera to the action-packed adventures of a group of everyday law enforcers. The cast and crew of the small screen version are present and correct for their more...
The Painted Veil
The searing heat and choking humidity of '20s Shanghai provide a suitably steamy and exotic backdrop to John Curran's stirring tale of repressed emotions, adapted by Ron Nyswaner from W. Somerset Maugham's novel. Falling in love is a perilous business in The Painted Veil: young hearts are crushed by the conventions more...
They say that every dog has its day, but this mangy mongrel of a horror-thriller is one of the exceptions. Created by genetically splicing Lassie and Dog Soldiers, The Breed is a risible tale of plucky youngsters under a siege on a remote island from a pack of feral, near-rabid hounds more...
