* Hoodwinked (U) Little Red Riding Hood - a classic story but there is more to every tale than meets the eye. Furry and feathered cops from the animal world investigate a domestic disturbance at Granny's cottage involving a girl, a wolf and an axe. With Anne Hathaway voicing Red Riding Hood and Glen Close voicing the granny, the film has some hilarious moments. 2/5

* Life and Lyrics (15) The Motion Crew are a group of south London rappers led by DJ Danny 'D-Biz' Lewis (Ashley Walters). For Danny, his music is everything and his crew are like family. But loyalties are put to the test when Danny falls for the beautiful Carmen, who he soon finds out is related to a member of their most hated rivals - the violent and arrogant Hard Cash Crew. 3/5

* Trust the Man (15) Tom (David Duchovny) and Rebecca (Julianne Moore) are suffering from a stable but sexless marriage.

Talladega Nights - The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (12A) Will Ferrell, John C Reilly and Michael Clarke Duncan star in this comedy about NASCAR driving. It's ok if you've got lots of money and time to waste but it is not one of Ferrell's funniest. 2/5

* The Black Dahlia (15) This adaptation of James Ellroy's muggy novel about one of LA's most notorious murders is dripping with the fat of film noir. You can spot its influences a mile off but it's still a lovely movie. Josh Hartnett and Scarlett Johansson star. 4/5

* The Queen (12A) Stephen Frears's luxurious film about the relationship between HM Queen Elizabeth II and Tony Blair following the death of Princess Di. All the plaudits will go to Helen Mirren but Michael Sheen's performance as Blair, visiting a character he played in Frears's The Deal, is once again sensational. 4/5

* You, Me and Dupree (12A) Owen Wilson's slacker persona gets another airing in this competent, likable and funny film. He plays the Dupree of the title who finds himself invited to move in with his newly-married friends after he loses his job. 4/5

* Little Man (12A) Dumb comedy is taken to new heights in this film about a vertically challenged criminal Calvin Sims (Marlon Wayans). If you liked cross-racial drag flick White Chicks by the same people you will like this. 1/5

* Cars (PG) A flash and brash racing car, voiced by Owen Wilson, gets stuck in a small town and comes to appreciate the slower pace of life. Not a bad film but it doesn't quite have the magic of Pixar's other CGI tales. 3/5

* Garfield 2 (U) Garfield (Bill Murray) and his owner Jon (Breckin Meyer) travel to London so Jon can propose to his girlfriend Liz (Jennifer Love Hewitt). Taken to live in a life of luxury after being confused with a wealthy cat Garfield becomes the target of a jealous rival. 2/5

* Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest (12A) The sequel to Johnny Depp's last film. Wildly silly and over the top, this sees more of Captain Jack Sparrow's misadventures including his battles against villain Bill Nighy's Davy Jones. 4/5
