From the world's faovurite reality family to the butt-kicking fairytale remake, here's our list of treats for you to get your hands on this week...

This Is 40



Handbag hearts:

We loved this off-beat comedy about reaching the big 4-0. The fact Judd Apatow and his wife Leslie Mann can take such simple life moments and create a whole flick (starring their real life kids to boot) makes the film all the more loveable.

Plus the likes of Megan Fox and Melissa McCarthy had us in stitches with their guest roles.

Arbitrage



Handbag hearts:

If you want to watch the tense thrilling world of rich business men doing wrong then Arbitrage it totally the film for you.

Richard Gere is the sixty-year-old magnate who has been messing with the books of his business unknown to his partner - his own daughter. The business is about to be sold for a huge profit but then he crashes his car while driving with his mistress causing her death.

This begins a chain of events that look set to ruin all the carefully laid plans he had set up and hoped to get away with.

You won't regret watching this one. Brilliant performance from the entire cast from start to finish.

Hitchcock



Handbag hearts:

Hitchcock had a lot of attention last year with this film and the BBC/HBO drama The Girl starring Sienna Miller.

But Hitchcock really focused on not only Hitchcock obsession with his leading ladies but also on his relationship with his wife and creative partner.

So much funnier than we could have expected, we can only hope Hitch was as fun as he seemed (taking aside that he was a creepy perv when it came to actresses.)

Warm Bodies



Handbag hearts:

The funny ironic "Twilight" introduces us to R, the zombie who somehow learns to develop feelings for a girl named Julie even though he's like the undead.

Nicholas Holt is weirdly lovable in zombie mode and we loved watching such a witty fantasy romance that wasn't so soppy.

Plus we give you three guessing for which famous tale R and Julie's love story is slightly based on...

The Numbers Station



Handbag hearts:

You seriously need to check out The Numbers Station. Is there anything better than the "trapped in a building" suspense flick?

We are treated to all the goodness of this film type thanks to some great performances from John Cucask and Malin Akerman.

So many twists and turns you won't know what to do with yourself.

So which flick will you be buying this week?
