Top of the list, though maybe not getting rave reviews is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (PG).

The franchise has been around since last century (well the 80s anyway) and this is a reboot, using all the modern technology at hand.

Megan Fox plays a reporter who tracks down a bunch of mutants in New York City which is being threatened by a crime boss.

The trailer looks good enough so could be worth a visit.

Tipped for an Oscar is The Judge (15) which sports a knock-out cast of Robert Duvall, Robert Downey Jnr, Vera Farmiga and Billy Bob Thornton to name but a few.

Downey Jnr plays a big city lawyer who returns home to help his father (Duvall), a judge who has been accused of murder.

If you can find it, Northern Soul (15) sounds like fun.

Starring Elliot James Langridge, Josh Whitehouse and Steve Coogan it’s a tale of two friends in the 70s UK who discover black American soul music.
