MARLEY AND ME (PG)
BASED on the hit memoir by John Grogan, Marley And Me chronicles the relationship of John (Owen Wilson) and Jen (Jennifer Aniston).
And by their side through all the challenges they face is their beloved dog, Marley.
He can chew through walls, gets kicked out of obedience school, and never met a leg he didn't like.
Others may see Marley as the "world's worst dog," but throughout it all, he proves to be the couple's most faithful friend.
The sets are incredible and the winning lead performances from Wilson and Aniston help elevate the picture above its feel-good level.
Alan Arkin gives a scene-stealing performance as Wilson's boss, and Kathleen Turner proves to be a great sport with her physically demanding cameo as Marley's obedience instructor.
But in the end the picture belongs to the dogs and is sure to become a family favourite.
THIS drama tells the real-life story of the infamous British prisoner Charles Bronson.

Most of this time was spent in solitary confinement.
The film will be directed by Nicolas Winding and is being produced and distributed by Vertigo Films.
It tells the brutal true life story of Charles Bronson, born Michael Gordon Peterson, in 1952 to a respectable middle-class family.
Bronson has since spent almost 35 years behind bars for various offenses and is described as Britain's most dangerous criminal.
