The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Director: Peter Jackson

Review: Ends on a very dissatisfying note despite being far too long with an odd mix of excellent and ropey special effects.

Watch it if: You've been to the bathroom.

And if you liked: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Saving Mr. Banks

Director: John Lee Hancock

Review: Runs a bit long and has some score issues but manages to convey a genuinely moving and sweet story.

Watch it if: You're ok with some sentiment in a film.

And if you liked: Mary Poppins, Radio Flyer
