What can we possibly say about this week's mega release aside from we're so happy it has finally arrived. Having been on the edge of our seats for Tenet all year, when the release date kept moving, deep down we feared it would never happen. Trust the UAE, though, to not only put it in cinemas, but to be one of the first around the world to do so. This Christopher Nolan epic is all anyone in the movie business can talk about and for good reason. Firstly, it's a Nolan original, which is always a solid gold guarantee for a good time and secondly, like many of the maestro's films, it was shot on IMAX cameras making a visit to the theatre essential to take in the whole experience. If you do not venture to VOX, for example, you will be missing out. In terms of plot we can't say much. It's a spy thriller where lead character, the unnamed 'Protagonist' (John David Washington), has to prevent the outbreak of World War III. How does he achieve this? Time travel. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 83%

A faith-based movie, Fatima tells the story of three shepherd children who, in 1917, believed they were visited by the Virgin Mary in Fatima, Portugal. As news of their vision spreads throughout the country, religious followers flock to the site and the children’s house much to the disdain of church officials. IMDb gives it 7.5
