The Dark Knight

Director: Christopher Nolan


Review: A film so intense and rich with character, action and stunning moments it cannot be described in one sentence.

Go see it if: You want to be blown away by some fantastic characters particularly those played by Aaron Eckhart, Gary Oldman and the late Heath Ledger.

And if you liked: Batman Begins, Fight Club

Director: Andrew Stanton


Review: A wonderfully sweet and bouncy movie jam packed with references to Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey and probably lots of other classic sci-fi.

Go see it if: You want the pants charmed right off you.

And if you liked: The Incredibles, Monsters Inc, Idiocracy

Added cult bonus: The always wonderful Fred Willard

The Mist

Director: Frank Darabont


Review: It will grab you and keep you tense and scared all the way through.

Go see it if: You like being scared by a film and aren't prone to any sort of depression or suicidal tendencies.

And if you liked: Dawn of the Dead, the good parts of Silent Hill, The Thing (for the plot and themes rather than the special effects unfortunately)

Added cult bonus: Wilhelm Scream


Director: Peter Berg


Review: Sets up very well but spirals in mediocrity at around the halfway point.

Go see it if: You can ignore a disappointing plot and enjoy looking at Will Smith or Charlize Theron.

And if you liked: Men In Black 2, Superman Returns

Director: Timur Bekmambetov


Review: Completely stupid but absolutely fun nonetheless.

Go see it if: You can accept a film not taking itself seriously and enjoy fun action.

And if you liked: Crank, Shoot Em' Up, The Matrix's action sequences
