For a two-hour slog, the plot and performances are barely there, with lots of CGI death sequences and loving shots of weapons of mass destruction trying to make up for it. It feels like a tedious video game with a script that's senseless to the point of surrealism, and ultimately it's all just juvenile, risible tat. ——————————————————————————————————2/6—— Teletext rating * (No-no) IS LOVE IN THE AIR FOR YOU? p348 Video/DVD Big Pictu Lifestyle Total Ent

As a struggling actor entering a crucible when his mother dies, he paints a real and unsympathetic picture of twentysomething life. He's given us a glorious, offbeat soundtrack too, and Natalie Portman is outstanding as the damaged-but-dynamic stranger Sam. This is both sweet and sour, and an appetising triumph. ——————————————————————————————————3/6—— Teletext rating **** (Very good) Had an accident? Need Advice?

Examining the power shift from small family-run vineyards in the Mediterranean heartlands to mass produced "wine factories" across three continents, this emotive documentary captures the personal dramas involved in a bitter multinational struggle. Wine fan or not, it's worth swallowing the persistent camera-shake for. ——————————————————————————————————4/6—— Teletext rating *** (Good) NORTON LOANS SEE p615 0800 929 100 Video/DVD Big Pictu Lifestyle Total Ent

It's a remarkable saga, made all the more so by the fact that only now is Wilson anything approaching lucid. Moreover, there's no denying the power of songs such as Wonderful or Surf's Up, and you'll certainly want to play the album immediately afterwards. ——————————————————————————————————5/6—— Teletext rating *** (Good) Had an accident?
