The recent reboot saw Peru’s most famous export reunited with the Brown family more than 50 years since the character first surfaced – and we were charmed all over again! Still polite, personable, and with a penchant for a marmalade sandwich or ten, he hasn’t changed too much – thank goodness for that!

This big-screen revisit centres around the terrific twosome of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum – a far cry from the 1980s police procedural best known for handing Johnny Depp his big break! Action packed and fantastically funny, it’s everything a buddy cop movie should be – as is its sequel!

Patsy and Eddy strutted into our lives close to three decades ago, but they’re still just as outstanding – and outrageous – as ever! Proof that you’re as young as you feel, their antics picked up exactly where the source material left off, and brought their unique brand of brilliance to a whole new generation!

OK, so the story’s been knocking about a bit (since somewhere around the 14th century, we reckon!), but the tale of Sherwood Forest’s finest is one for every generation! The latest to don the tights is Taron Egerton – and he’s certainly out to give Hoods of yesteryear a run for their money!

Crockett and Tubbs are icons of the screen – but this bombastic big-screen treatment brings the buzz to a whole new level! Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx assume the roles as the stylish arm of the law in a film that’s beautifully shot and brilliantly exciting – a fitting tribute to our long-loved heroes!
