Allied (15)

With a protracted opening sequence set in 1942 French Morocco, Robert Zemeckis' old-fashioned espionage thriller explicitly doffs its fedora to the film Casablanca and a bygone era of sweeping romances.

Bad Santa 2 (15)

Given the amount of saccharine tosh we're subjected to each and every winter, it's perhaps no surprise that, much like an over-excited kid on Christmas Day, we embraced Bad Santa with open arms when it was released back in 2003.

The Accountant (15)

In 1998, childhood friends Ben Affleck and Matt Damon excitedly clutched Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting, an emotionally rich drama about a mathematics genius, who works as a janitor.

Sausage Party (15)

There's plentiful food for thought in Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan's uproarious and potty-mouthed computer-animated comedy set in a supermarket where cute anthropomorphised perishables dream of a "great beyond" past the sliding front doors.

The Purge: Election Year (15)

Sobering political reality trumps blood-saturated fiction in the third instalment of James DeMonaco's horror series, set in a dystopian America which has legalised murder for 12 hours every March to sate the population's bloodlust and reduce crime levels for the rest of the year.

War Dogs (15)

Based on an article in Rolling Stone magazine and a subsequent book, War Dogs heavily dramatizes the true story of two enterprising twentysomethings, who became multi-millionaires as arms dealers to the US military.

Swallows and Amazons (PG)

Adapted from Arthur Ransome's beloved book, Swallows And Amazons is a charmingly old-fashioned tale of messing about on the river set in more innocent times before children became zombified slaves to their parents' tablets and smartphones.

The Shallows (15)

Just when you thought it was safe to head back into the water, Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra shreds nerves and nubile flesh using one of cinema's most ferocious and enduring villains: the great white shark.

Nerve (15)

In an age of grubby reality TV and 24-hour social chatter, the premise of Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman's voyeuristic high-stakes thriller doesn't seem particularly far-fetched.
