The Fifth Element
Starring: Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, Gary Oldman, Chris Tucker
The movie: Luc Besson's dazzling depiction of a future New York stars Bruce Willis as a cab driver who crosses paths with Milla Jovovich's dreadlocked Leeloo and sets out on an adventure to save humanity. Not only is this a visually spectacular flick that's perfect for the Blu-ray format, it's also huge fun thanks to a scenery-chewing turn from a villainous Gary Oldman.
Bonus features: five making-of documentaries; visual effects commentary; theatrical trailer; MTV Cannes premiere footage.

The Hole 3D
Starring: Chris Massoglia, Haley Bennett, Teri Polo
Format: BD 3D
The movie: Gremlins legend Joe Dante returns with his first movie since 2003's Looney Tunes: Back in Action. His horror flick The Hole might be aimed at children, but it's a spooky experience nevertheless - that clown puppet is still giving us nightmares! A new Blu-ray 3D release best exhibits all the nooks, crannies and corridors inside a hole two brothers uncover in their basement.

Gnomeo & Juliet
Starring: James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Jason Statham
Format: BD, DVD
The movie: A whacky idea if ever there was one - Shakespeare's tragic love story retold with garden gnomes! - Gnomeo & Juliet is a surprisingly entertaining and heartfelt 3D animation featuring an eclectic voice cast of James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Jason Statham, Michael Caine... and Ozzy Osbourne! It's also a toe-tapping pseudo-musical, with classic tracks from Elton John (who also executive produces) weaved into the soundtrack.

Starring: Nichola Burley, George Sampson, Charlotte Rampling
Format: BD 3D
The movie: The first movie of its kind to be filmed in 3D, StreetDance was a huge box office hit in the UK last summer and now it's getting a reissue exclusively for 3D TV owners. George Sampson, Diversity and Flawless provide some eye-popping dance moves as Nichola Burley's dance crew is forced to train with a ballet group from the Royal Dance School in exchange for rehearsal space.

The Danny Boyle Collection
Starring: James Franco, Cillian Murphy, Dev Patel, Freida Pinto
Format: BD, DVD
The movie: After a difficult experience in Hollywood with The Beach, this eclectic mix shows Danny Boyle at his genre-hopping best. 28 Days Later almost single-handedly revived the zombie movie, Sunshine's breathtaking visualisations of the dying sun and Underworld soundtrack make it an almost-classic sci-fi, Slumdog Millionaire hoovered up Oscars and the euphoric survival drama 127 Hours, also available to buy separately today, is perhaps the best of the lot. A must-buy for Danny Boyle fans.
