Weirdsville (2007)
Chainmailed flail-wielding midgets chasing Satanists chasing druggies - Allan Moyle has gone for the grown-up panto approach.

These ladies have too much time on their hands if the only thing they worry about is finishing their reading assignment in time for their next bout of well-heeled lusting.

Brick Lane (2008)
Monica Ali's sensitive sprawling text about a Bangledeshi wife (Chatterjee) forced into an east London marriage gets a sanded-down blandification as it makes its lurch onto the big screen.

Beowulf (2007)
The film is surprisingly thoughtful about adult relationships and human fallibility, while the eerie animation of its stars, like it or not, seems to mark an important development for the future of film.

An orgy of slit throats, lopped digits and a naked fight scene that will tattoo itself on to your brain.

Ratatouille (2007)
Sure, you may not love rats. You may hate them. But you really do have to love Pixar.

Control (2007)
The grim black-and-white grain that director Anton Corbijn shoots in is both beautiful and intimate. And the performances are spot-on - none of the cast put a naturalistic foot wrong.

The Kingdom (2007)
And that's the problem. The Kingdom isn't awful - the relentless pace, thumping soundtrack, twisting plot and shaky camera-work all see to that.

1408 (2007)
"No one lasts more than an hour," goes the saying about the room. It's probably how long your attention lasts too. But it's one hell of an hour.

Sugarhouse (2007)
Directed by Gary Love, early shots promise much but it never delivers. Essentially a Play For Today, with more crack and a syrupy ending you can see coming.

Is there a better action lead than Matt Damon as Jason Bourne? Not on this evidence.
