Mr. Robot

Season 2 of one of the nerdiest, strangest, darkest TV shows ever to hit streaming has finally arrived. Or, more accurately, the first episode has. At least it's a two-parter, which means there's 80mins of entertainment to get your teeth into.

We won't spoil the events of season 1 in case there are readers who've somehow managed to miss it so far (where have you been?!), but suffice to say that the world created by the events at the end of last season is very different indeed, and where the characters fit in with it is the show's main concern - at least for now.

If you loved the first season you should feel the same about the new one, just don't go expecting any neatly wrapped answers to the show's many questions.

Edge of Tomorrow

If you're someone who thought Groundhog Day was lacking in the aliens and guns department, Edge of Tomorrow is the film for you. Here, the backdrop to the time loop is an alien invasion on Earth, and every time Tom Cruise's character dies he's reset to the day before the huge, disastrous battle that signals the beginning of the end for humanity.

With every replay he tries to make a tiny bit more headway into finding a way to defeat the seemingly undefeatable aliens (and smooch Emily Blunt), and the loneliness, fruitlessness and frustration of the task at hand make the film surprisingly poignant.

Don't worry, it's also got plenty of action and Tom Cruise is once again charming enough for you to forget that he's a massive loony in real life.

Looper is a superb, mind-bending, futuristic, time-travelling action-thriller that sees Joseph Gordon-Levitt assume the role of an assassin whose job consists of putting a bullet in the head of people teleported to his time by a future mob organisation (holy plot line, Batman).

But when the poor sap that appears before him is his future self (played by Bruce Willis), things get rather, well, complicated.

The intricate plot is strongly complimented by plenty of action and strong performances from all, although Gordon-Levitt’s Bruce Willis-like prosthetic nose is initially a little distracting.

The Raid

If you thought the best martial arts films come from Japan or China, The Raid is here to set you right. Filmed and set in Indonesia and directed by Welshman Gareth Evans, this is a showcase for pencak silat, the most incredible martial art you've never heard of.

But this film is about more than the stunning fight scenes. The story is tight but affecting, and takes place almost entirely in an apartment block that one cop, Rama, has to clear of very nasty bad guys. It's thrilling from start to finish, and a must-watch whether you're a fan of martial arts movies or not.

Planet Terror

An old-school b-movie double-bill that staples together a Robert Rodriguez film with one from Quentin Tarantino might sound amazing, but when it actually happened back in 2007 there was one fairly big problem: one half of the double-bill was rubbish.

Thankfully you can now skip straight passed Tarantino's tiresome Death Proof and go straight to Rodriguez's Planet Terror, which is a brilliantly schlocky horror about a zombie outbreak and a woman with a machine gun for a leg. It really is as good as it sounds.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

Sometimes sci-fi is all about spaceships and explosions and men in silly costumes waving giant glow-sticks at each other; sometimes it's about a vision of the near future, or even a parallel present, that's close enough to our reality to properly sting.

Eternal Sunshine is mostly a modern love story, the inspired twist being that in this world you can pay to have all memories of a specific person erased from your mind. It's complicated and clever but ultimately warm and honest; most impressively of all, it's got Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet in it and you don't want to shoot either of them.
