Cert: 12

The lowdown: Gravity meets Castaway in Ridley Scott’s enjoyable sci-fier. Matt Damon turns his likeability up full wattage as Mark Watney, an astronaut thought dead and stranded on Mars after his team make an emergency getaway during a ferocious storm. While not shooting for the stars in the same way as Interstellar, or indeed Gravity, The Martian ultimately manages to break the gravitational pull of being ordinary.

The To Do List

Year: 2013

The lowdown: Lewd, crude, non-judgemental and kinda sweet, Maggie Carey’s debut feature is likely to split audiences. Aubrey Plaza heads up this early 1990s set sex comedy as a brain boning up on sexcapades before embarking on her college years. With chuckles and naughtiness that would make American Pie heat over, this is the movie your parents warned you about.
