Tonight I have been to see Argo.

Ben Affleck directs and stars in the incredible true story of a secret mission to rescue six Americans trapped in Iran. It's 1979 and revolutionaries have just raided the US embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But as the hostage crisis deepens, another extraordinary story is unfolding. Six Americans have escaped and are hiding in the home of the Canadian ambassador. As revolutionary guards conduct door-to-door searches, they face the real possibility of meeting very nasty ends. But CIA 'exfiltration' expert Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) has an audacious and risky plan. With the help of Hollywood special effects expert John Chambers (John Goodman) and producer Lester Siegel (Alan Arkin), he intends to pretend the six are a Canadian film crew making a science fiction film! Based on real events, details of which were recently declassified, Ben Affleck's dazzling follow-up to 'The Town' is a story so astonishing that it could only be true.

Love Bite

Tonight I have been to see Love Bite.

A werewolf preys on virgins in this seriously sexy British horror-comedy! In the dead-end seaside resort town of Rainmouth-on-Sea, there's nothing much for the local lads to do during the summer holidays apart from hanging around arcades and chasing girls. Trouble is, most of the girls aren't worth chasing. Jamie (Ed Speleers) is bored out of his mind and dreaming of escape. Then smart, sexy American traveller Juliana (Jessica Szohr) walks into his life. Naturally, Jamie is smitten. But then something weird starts to happen. A boy named Bruno (Robin Morrissey) disappears while coming home from a party and an enigmatic stranger reveals there's a werewolf on the loose. What's more, this hungry lycanthrope is preying on virgin flesh. The only way to avoid its attentions is to pop your cherry as quickly as possible! 'An American Werewolf in London' meets 'The Inbetweeners Movie' in this hilarious, hormone-charged comic horror from 'West Is West' director Andy de Emmony.

Fun Size

Tonight I have been to see Fun Size.

There's romance and chaos in the air in this outrageous Halloween teen comedy from the creator of 'The O.C.' It's Halloween - the night of the big party to which Wren (Victoria Justice) and her best pal April (Jane Levy) have been invited by dreamy Aaron Riley (Thomas McDonell). Then Wren's mum drops a bombshell. She's off out for the evening, leaving Wren to take charge of freaky little brother Albert (Jackson Nicoll). As if things couldn't possibly get any worse, Albert disappears while out trick or treating. Now Wren and April need to track him down on this wildest of nights, and to do that they need to commandeer a car driven by nerdy Roosevelt (Thomas Mann). Little do they know that mischievous Albert has been recruited for a vengeance mission! This feature debut by US TV writer and producer Josh Schwartz, creator of 'The O.C.' and screenwriter of 'Gossip Girl', is a real Halloween comedy treat.
