Extra Virgin -  February 2010
Film

Trailer Park - This year is shaping up to be a bumper year on the silver screen, with everything from an action film starring Stallone AND Schwarzenegger - excuse me while I punch the air guiltily - to Twilight number three.

Iron man II Iron Man II
There was a point two years ago when it appeared Robert Downey Junior had made two very bad decisions - the first, releasing a solo album entitled 'The Fabulist'; the second was signing on to be Iron Man. The album might have come and gone without troubling the scorers, but his performance made Iron Man the best superhero film for ages.

The Road The Road
Cormack McCarthy's No Country for Old Men was masterfully adapted to the screen by the Coen brothers and Oscar came running. Now, his Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Road - a story of hope and hopelessness set in an impossibly bleak, post-apocalyptic world - arrives on screen with Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron in the lead roles.

The A Team The A-Team
South Africa's own Sharlto Copely plays Murdoch alongside host of big shots in the film adaptation of the beloved TV series. Joe Carnahan directs, which instills as much confidence as it does trepidation - he opened up with the classy, gritty Narc and followed it with Smoking Aces, which not even an excellent cast could de-turkeyfy.

The Expendables The Expendables
The cast seems too bad to be true. Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and WWE star Stone Cold Steve Austin head to South America to overthrow a dictator and shoot a lot of people on the way. It might not win any Oscars - scratch that, it definitely won't win any Oscars - but I challenge any red-blooded man to skip it.

Twilight Saga - Eclipse The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Block your ears, here comes the high pitched squeal of teenage euphoria. Twilight number three comes to our screens this year and because this instalment is directed by David Slade, the man behind the chilling Hard Candy and 2007's bloodsucker thriller 30 days of Night, it might actually be quite good. If you're older than 17, a word of advice: Go during school hours.
