PREDESTINATION (15)
★★★

In this mind-bending slice of sci-fi, Ethan Hawke stars as a “temporal agent” who travels through time preventing crimes from occurring. Think a less-showy Minority Report meets a more-serious Men in Black meets an equally fascinating Looper and you’re on the right track.

Formats: DVD, Blu-ray and download


ELECTRICITY (15)
★★★★

Agyness Deyn isn’t the first model to swap the catwalk for the movies, but this bold and challenging piece shows she’s more than merely set decoration. In her starring debut, Deyn plays a woman suffering from epilepsy who leaves the safety of her home for the city to locate her estranged sibling.

Formats: DVD and download


EXISTS (15)
★★

Thrill-seeking youngsters decide to stay in a relative’s cabin in the woods, only to find it’s nigh-on uninhabitable and, what’s more, it’s in Bigfoot’s back garden. Hairy, murderous mayhem ensues. Sure, we’ve been here before, but with the co-director of The Blair Witch Project at the helm, scares and jolts are guaranteed.

Formats: DVD and download


THE GRANDMASTER (15)
★★★

Art-house darling Wong Kar-Wai’s sumptuous martial arts biopic charts the life and loves of Ip Man, the kung fu master whose style was adopted by the young Bruce Lee. Ravishingly to look at and filled with romantic yearning, this certainly isn’t your average chop-socky flick.

Formats: DVD, Blu-ray and download


THE TURNING (15)
★★★

The portmanteau film is the cinematic equivalent of those cereal variety packs you got as a kid. There’s always going to be elements you prefer (the Coco Pops, if you will) to the more standard efforts (boring old Cornflakes). This Aussie effort, based on the stories of TIm Winton, offers an above-average selection, helped by a tasty cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving and Rose Byrne.
