Journalist Eddie Brock is infected by an alien parasite; an uneasy alliance is formed. Mostly fun horror-comedy with a whiff of the first Quatermass story. A clunky third act and obvious subplots slow matters down, but the scuzzy ambience and Hardy’s performance help.

Another comic adaptation from Marvel as space symbiote Venom merges with a troubled Tom Hardy to fight the greater good. A misfire, that can’t measure its comedy and lacks cohesion. It’s neither funny nor likeable.
The crew of the Enterprise face a Romulan rebellion led by a clone of Picard. Action-heavy final instalment for the Next Generation crew, which revisits plenty of old series themes. Surprisingly tatty in places; for fans and completists only.
Three linked stories, told in different timescales, related to the Allied retreat from Dunkirk. Equal parts puzzle, technical marvel, victory-from-defeat drama, disaster movie and arthouse flick, Nolan’s film is a thing of bleak and understated beauty. Highly recommended.
