Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard jump aboard the history-mystery train yet again for this third adaptation of a Dan Brown page-turner, although it's probably only recommended for franchise addicts.

Picking up shortly after the conclusion of the first film, with a mood-setting Buster Keaton Easter egg, this high-octane sequel wastes no time putting the beat down. What unspools is an ambitious expansion of the series, in which we visit another Continental Hotel, this time in Rome, where our eponymous hero is obliged to take on another gig he really doesn't want. The themes are mythical and characters operatic, but the gun-fu is clearly inspired by the John Woo/Hong Kong action playbook (via a nod to Enter the Dragon). Insane bouts of action, juxtaposed with moments of comical civility, give the movie a sublime pace that actually makes perfect sense.

Jurassic Park needs no introduction, although it's difficult the believe it's been 25 years since its digital dinos ushered in a new era of VFX. Michael Crichton might have recycled Westworld for the theme-park-gone-wrong plot, but Steven Spielberg's assured direction resulted in a film as entertaining as it was astonishing.

This 4K release of the 2005 King Kong remake carries two versions of director Peter Jackson's monkey movie: the theatrical release, and an extended cut. At 188 minutes and 200 minutes respectively they remind us of Jackson's difficulties with editing himself – and the shorter version is notably superior. However, it is beautifully shot, and features some strikingly intense set-pieces. The film also builds a genuine emotional connection with the big ape.

Labyrinth feels at times rather awkward, laboured and, yes, ‘of its time’. With the combined creative forces of Jim Henson, David Bowie, Terry Jones and George Lucas infused into almost every frame, though, it’s blissfully impossible to separate Labyrinth from the nostalgia associated with a pre-CGI era willing to back real imagination over endless formulaic sequels. As such it’s a title every serious film fan should own.

Wolverine's star turns in the X-Men movie franchise haven't exactly set the world alight so far. Mercifully, though, Logan gives the character the send off his fans have been crying out for.

There’s always a touch of madness about the films of Luc Besson. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't. With Lucy, it mostly works. The story – about a woman who gains the ability to use the entire capacity of her brain – starts off daft and gets crazier, but Besson's flare for action, some breathless pacing and a committed performance from Scarlett Johansson keep you locked in for the ride.

With its imaginative story, genuinely creepy bad guys, dark humour and fun turns by a watchable cast, it's a shame this Tim Burton fantasy flick went mostly under the radar. Okay, so it feels a touch languid in its first half and too rushed in its second, and there's an over-reliance on CGI during the finale, but it's hard to imagine anyone coming away from Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children feeling in any way short-changed. If you've ignored Burton since the dismal Dark Shadows (and we certainly wouldn't blame you), maybe it's time to re-embrace him.
