Honest Thief

This week's blockbuster stars Liam Neeson, so strap yourself in. Blessed with a very different set of skills, Neeson plays a notorious bank robber who after many years of heists decides to turn himself in. So far so good, but 'why?' you may ask. For love of course! Unfortunately the main man becomes tangled in a violent conflict with two crooked FBI agents intent on stealing his money. Tom (Neeson) desperately wishes to atone for his past crimes for the sake of his new flame Annie (Kate Walsh). When he calls the Boston FBI field office to confess and set a meeting, Agents Baker (Robert Patrick) and Meyers (Jeffrey Donovan) laugh it off as a prank. They send their subordinates, Agents Nivens (Jai Courtney) and Hall (Anthony Ramos) instead. The two younger officers are shocked to discover Tom is the real deal, and see his stolen money as their golden ticket to a better life. So begins a cat-and-mouse game. IMDb gives it 6.2

An absolutely terrifying picture, Relic looks superb though not one for the fainthearted. Blending the real life trauma dementia brings with a supernatural horror element, director Natalie Erika has turned the fright genre on its head and created a scary but crucially believable tale. Starring the brilliant Emily Mortimer as Kay, alongside daughter Sam (Bella Heathcote), she must head to mother Ednaís (Robyn Nevin) remote country house to assess her wellbeing. Instantly discovering she has disappeared, after a long search Edna eventually returns although appears distracted and afraid at what she keeps seeing around her. Are these visions a result of mental deterioration, or are there malevolent entities entering the house? Rotten Tomatoes gives it 91%

Four Kids and It

Itís unusual a movie starring Michael Caine flies under the radar, but this one caught us completely unawares. Based on a book by the ever-popular Jacqueline Wilson, this film sees a family holidaying with their long lost English uncle Trent (Russell Brand) in the British countryside. The stately manor is home to a number of historical artifacts and taxidermied rare species of which the Trents have been collectors for generations. When the kids head down to the beach and discover a wish-granting magical creature (voiced by Caine), Trent can think of nothing better than adding it to his menagerie. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 50%
