Aron Ralston is an adrenalin junkie, and as any self respecting pleasurer of the íoh, thatís a bit extreme!í, heís full on tearing it through Utah's Canyonlands National Park when one leap too far leaves his arm pinioned by a bolder in a barren crevasse. Based on a true story this is the remarkable account of Ralstonís cocky, hopeful, desperate, hallucinatory and determined desire to survive. A superb performance by Franco (and a cracking soundtrack) help pull this minimalist film through; tight find out more...

Nong Toom has become one of the very best at his particular discipline, the ancient martial art of Muay Thai, but unlike many of his fellow combatants, Nong is in search of more than just fame and fortune. In the perfection of his art Nong hopes to find the financial means by which he can redefine his very sexuality. Based on a true story, Beautiful Boxer is a bone crunching display of its art, though, perhaps, some of the emotional subtleties have been lost in between the stunningly choreograph find out more...

A factionalised account of how the 1919 baseball world series was thrown by the heavily favoured Chicago White Sox. They made a deal with gangsters to get back at their stingy boss and make a packet on the side. This was a scandal that shocked a nation and is an excellent film. find out more...

Based on a true story; from the small town of Odessa The Permian High Panthers of 1988 were the most successful high school American football team in Texas history. This thoughtful tale depicts the immense pressure these young lads and their coach found themselves under in a town with nothing else to aspire to; like a "Springfield" devoid of wit, irony or indeed hope. 'Friday Night Lights' is a powerful, gripping drama with excellent performances and a refreshing lack of sporting schmaltz. find out more...

I, TONYA (2017)

Certification15 Our Rating

Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding I, T find out more...

INVICTUS (2009)

Certification12 Our Rating

Morgan Freeman stars as Nelson Mandela in a movie about the latter's attempts to heal South Africa's racial divides by getting pally with that icon of Boer nationalism the Springboks rugby team and urging them to victory in the 1995 Rugby World Cup. Sound tacky? Well prepare to be surprised as the octogenarian Eastwood delivers a detailed picture of the South Africa of the time, the racial divide, apartheid's cultural legacy and the (at the very least short-term) success of Mandela's strategy. find out more...
