The man behind Ali G and Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen, dons yet another dodgy accent in order to offend, shock and entertain in Grimsby. Playing the moronic long lost brother of MI6’s top spy, Cohen pulls no punches to bring his new character to life, getting into plenty of trouble on his mission to save the world. If you’re a fan of the comedian’s previous efforts you’ll most certainly enjoy this, but if you’re easily offended – or just proud of your Humberside heritage – then you’d best stay away.
Supernatural thriller The Forest fails to bring the scares, despite starring the talented Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games) and a truly haunting setting. When Sara’s twin sister (also played by Dormer) goes missing, she travels to Japan to follow her last known footsteps in the infamous Aokigahara forest – known as the “suicide forest”. There, she awakens unsettled spirits.
