The Silver Fleet (PG) 1943 The chief of a Dutch shipyard finds himself shunned by his neighbours and loved ones for helping the Nazis create a new kind of submarine. Little do they suspect he's come up with a plan to destroy his latest creation as well as those who ordered him to build it. Excellent World War Two melodrama, starring Ralph Richardson, Esmond Knight, Googie Withers and Frederick Burtwell (888)

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (PG) 1984 Hayao Miyazaki's vibrant animated fantasy follows a post-apocalyptic tribe facing constant danger from a rival faction and a species of giant insects. The daughter of the kingdom's leader hopes to find a way to communicate peacefully with the bugs rather than destroying them. But she uncovers the shocking truth about the creatures and a plan to repeat the cataclysm that nearly destroyed their world. Patrick Stewart, Alison Lohman and Uma Thurman provide the voices (888)

The Tall Men (PG) 1955 Clark Gable shines in this thrilling Western, which sees him play a Civil War veteran from Texas. He and his brother head north in the hope of striking it rich in the Montana goldfields, but instead are recruited into a cattle drive by a wealthy businessman. Along the way, they rescue a female settler from an Indian attack, who sparks a fierce rivalry between the former soldier and his employer. Jane Russell and Robert Ryan also star (888)

The Animal (12) 2001 A hapless wimp dreams of becoming a police officer, but thinks his chance has gone following a car accident which leaves him critically injured. That is, until a scientist offers to make his physique better than ever before by rebuilding him with the body parts of animals. All seems well, until some beastly traits begin to emerge. Wacky comedy, starring Rob Schneider, Edward Asner and Colleen Haskell

Men of Honor (15) 2000 Cuba Gooding Jnr stars as a Navy recruit who resolves to beat racism and become the force's first black diver. However, his superior officers are determined to see him fail, and when he loses a leg, his goal seems impossible until he receives help from an unexpected source. Uninspired fact-based drama which should have been a lot better than it is, especially with a cast of this calibre. Robert De Niro, Charlize Theron and Hal Holbrook co-star (888)

Once Upon a Time in the Midlands (15) 2002 A Glaswegian crook heads for Nottingham after seeing his ex-girlfriend humiliate her boyfriend on daytime television, determined that he should win back her heart. Shane Meadows' comedy, which draws heavily on a number of classic Westerns, starring Robert Carlyle, Rhys Ifans, Shirley Henderson, Kathy Burke and Ricky Tomlinson (888)

8 Women (15) 2002 A wealthy industrialist is found murdered in his country home, and an octet of women from the maids to his wife find themselves under suspicion of committing the horrible crime. However, they're stranded in the mansion by a fierce snowstorm, and it's not long before the inevitable finger-pointing begins. Simply stunning musical French mystery, starring Catherine Deneuve, Emmanuelle Beart, Isabelle Huppert and Fanny Ardant
