DOCTOR STRANGE ★★★★★

Take a trip to another dimension as Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch makes his long-awaited debut as Marvel’s Master of Mystic Arts. This mind-bending extravaganza pits the latest big-screen superhero against Mads Mikkelsen’s mad magician, but it’s the Inception-like twisting of reality that will stick long in the memory. Make an appointment with the doctor now.

STARFISH ★★★★

The crippling effects of sepsis (blood poisoning) on a young husband and father is the harrowing subject of this true-story drama. Shocking but not voyeuristic, moving but not mawkish, Bill Clark’s chronicle of a couple battling against the medical odds is boosted by pitch-perfect performances from Joanne Froggatt and Tom Riley.

TRAIN TO BUSAN ★★★★

There’s more to this South Korean “zombies on a train” horror than you might think. Disaster movie-style action, nerve-rending tension and people you genuinely root for will keep you gasping for breath all the way to the end of the line. Passengers on Southern Trains may already feel like this.
