JURASSIC WORLD (12)
★★★★

Seems like boffins will never learn, and it probably doesn’t require a spoiler alert to say that when they genetically engineer a beastie as the main attraction at a new dinosaur park, it doesn’t go well.

Formats: DVD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and download


KNOCK KNOCK  (18)
★★★

Home alone husband Keanu Reeves lets two soaking wet girls into his house to use the phone. Once inside they strip off and seduce him. What’s not to like, eh? But in the hands of horror director Eli Roth, what starts as a perfect male fantasy turns into a psychological nightmare. 

Formats: DVD, Blu-ray and download


THE CONNECTION (15)
★★★

An edgy game of cat and mouse ensues when cop Jean Dujardin tries to thwart crime boss Gilles Lellouche and his operation to export heroin through Marseilles.

LOVE IS ALL (12)

Director Kim Longinotto traces the history of and celebrates love in all its forms in this charming documentary that uses a host of fascinating archive clips all set to a soundtrack by Sheffield songsmith Richard Hawley.

THE PROFOUND DESIRE OF THE GODS (15)
★★★★

Not quite a normal day at the office for engineer Kazuo Kitamura when his latest job takes him to a remote island where he becomes embroiled in the incest and insanity peccadilloes of the family that lives there. Shohei Imamura’s film is also available as part of a bumper 12-disc Masters of Cinema box set – if you’re writing that Dear Santa letter.
