In Cinemas This Week

The Road - Based on Cormac Macarthy's novel, this post-apocalyptic drama follows a father and son through a harsh American wilderness after an un-named catastophe has struck years before. Plot invloves cannibalism, paranoia and suicide. Pretty bleak stuff. Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-Mckee star. Watch out for some fantastic almost unrecognisable cameos from a couple of great stars. Grim, startling and ultimately beautiful.

Green Zone - Touted as the new Bourne-a-like - indeed, its directed byPaul Greengrass and stars Matt Damon - this Iraqi war drama looks action and espionage packed. Unfortunately its been getting some pretty awful reviews, with one reporting walkouts from sheer boredom. I hear the only thing worth going to see this for is a single chopper explosion. Oh dear.

The Boys Are Back - Clive Owen in touching comedy/drama, shot in South Australia, about a career man who loses his wife and must face bringing up his two boys and the highly-charged situations that the strains of this sort of change bring. Looks like a lovely touching human drama full of honesty and pathos.

The Bounty Hunter - Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston, in a comedy, about... uh... a bounty hunter. A no brainer.
