By now the formula was starting to look stale, although two further sequels followed this tired effort. The opponent here is Mr T, before he became a star in The A-Team, who takes Sylvester Stallone's championship crown; Rocky then battles to reclaim it. Writer/director Stallone once again finds roles for Talia Shire as his long-suffering wife, Carl Weathers, Burt Young and Burgess Meredith, but the story is predictable and it all goes a little flat outside the ring.

Three years after her family were brutally slaughtered by deranged teacher Richard Fenton (Johnathon Schaech), distraught teen Donna (Brittany Snow) prepares to attend her senior prom. Naturally, it falls on the day that her homicidal stalker escapes from prison, intent on finishing what he started. Director Nelson McCormick's loose remake of the 1980 horror proves to be lighter on gore, thrills, suspense and sense - taking the soft option at every turn. Stupid students do the same stupid things, with loads of annoying false scares thrown into the dismally bland process. It's as though the film-makers know their target demographic will be spending as much time texting their mates as watching the movie. So who cares how flimsy the plot is, as long as there are beautiful people up on the screen and dance hits on the soundtrack?

The subconscious mind becomes a deadly maze for Leonardo DiCaprio in this wildly inventive psychological thriller from Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight). DiCaprio stars as Cobb, a corporate spy who steals secrets from other people's dreams, but begins to lose his grip when tasked by a business mogul (Ken Watanabe) with implanting a destructive idea in the mind of the heir to an energy empire (Cillian Murphy). Their thoughts are in conflict, producing incredible, ethereal action scenes akin to The Matrix. Cobb is aided by a team of specialists, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao and Ellen Page. However, he is also fighting himself and projections of his wife (Marion Cotillard) that threaten to plunge him into oblivion, and these scenes give the film a true sense of urgency. Emotional intimacy is lacking, with some characters functioning merely as devices to explain an increasingly complicated scenario, but there's no doubt that Nolan (who also directed the equally elliptical Memento) knows how to craft an enthralling brainteaser.

Nuance was not Donald Wolfit's strong suit, but he had presence and power in spades. He totally dominates this story with a bluster and conviction that keeps an uninspiring tale of the hunt for a Second World War traitor from falling flat on its face. As he showed in Operation Amsterdam, writer/director Michael McCarthy had a splendid sense of place, but no talent whatsoever for generating and sustaining suspense. It was a smart move casting Wolfit, Christopher Lee and Anton Diffring as a trio of shifty-looking suspects, but it all too quickly becomes clear in which direction the finger is pointing.

In this follow-up to the Oscar-winning original, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is now married to the love of his life (Talia Shire), but is contemplating a risky return to the ring. Having gone the distance with heavyweight champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in the first bout, Balboa sees a return match as a way out of poverty, though he may lose his sight. As if Stallone wasn't enough of a glutton for punishment, he takes on the directorial duties as well as writing and starring in this sequel. The big-fight finale is executed with skill, passion and glee, and it's good to see the rasping Burgess Meredith back in the trainer's chair, but this unsurprisingly fails to match the original.

In the outstanding sixth adaptation of JK Rowling's fantasy series, Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) lures potions professor Horace Slughorn (Jim Broadbent, in an entertainingly eccentric performance) back to Hogwarts. Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) is then charged with trying to dislodge a key clue regarding Slughorn's former pupil, the future Lord Voldemort, from the retired teacher's resistant mind. This is a difficult book to adapt because it is mostly concerned with setting up the two-part finale, but screenwriter Steve Kloves does an admirable job of condensing the plot without losing the emotional depth of the surprisingly adult narrative. The dark tone of the film, as the forces of evil grow ever stronger, is leavened by the romantic entanglements and rampaging hormonal comic relief. Director David Yates (returning after Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) dazzles with an evocatively brooding style and conjures impressive magical atmospheres. Seamlessly and vigorously conveyed, this satisfying segment raises the storytelling and visual-effects bar for the entire series.

Like the much-loved series of novels by Patrick O'Brian, to which this adaptation will no doubt be scrupulously compared, Peter Weir's film immerses the audience in the day-to-day life on board a 19th-century British warship as it pursues a "phantom" French vessel with the avowed intent of sending her to Davy Jones's locker. Purists will endlessly discuss the casting of Russell Crowe as Captain Jack Aubrey (here deploying his self-described "RSC two pints after lunch" English accent) and Paul Bettany as his ship's doctor and best friend, Maturin, but both give full-blooded performances. It might have been a little repetitive, but thankfully the likeable characters, Weir's meticulous attention to period detail and the stunningly realised action (The Surprise's rounding of Cape Horn is as exciting a seaborne sequence as has ever been committed to celluloid) more than make up for the slightly anorexic story. Sadly for the placated fans, the film wasn't enough of a box-office success to generate the sequels that it seemed to promise.

Sylvester Stallone here returns to the Rocky road with decidedly less success than before. Nobody boxes clever in this lazy third sequel, also directed by Stallone, which introduced Dolph Lundgren to the movie world, though Stallone's then-wife Brigitte Nielsen easily outstrips Lundgren in the stone-faced acting stakes. This time out, Rocky has to take on Soviet super-champ Ivan Drago (Lundgren), and though it's impossible not to get caught up in our hero's Russian training programme, or to root for his climactic victory, the mawkish montages accompanied by blaring music are no substitute for plot shading.
