At number 2 is a new entry for Jack the Giant Slayer. A different take on the Jack and the Beanstalk story. A family film for everyone with an all-star cast. At number 3 we have Oz the Great and Powerful, still entertaining families before the Easter holidays. The film is amazing! I recommend you go see. At number 4 is Identity Thief, a comedy starring Jason Bateman as a guy who finds his identity has been stolen by a woman in another American state. Instead of going to the Police he decides to deal with the situation himself. Chaos ensues when he meets the woman. Side Effects is at number 5. A brilliant psychological film which will make you think. At number 6 is Wreck-It-Ralph. A fun child’s film but for everyone, based around a video game character, Ralph. Number 7 is a new entry with Stolen. Nicholas Cage stars as a con who is released from prison and wants to mend his broken relationship with his daughter. Unfortunately he has enemy who kidnap his daughter and the ransom is for him to rob a bank for her release. Welcome to the Punch is at number 8. It is a good gritty cop drama with twists and turns. A t number 9 is Parker. Jason Statham stars as a criminal out for revenge on his old cohorts. A number 10 is Mama. Still making audiences jump.
