In the week that we have had the Golden Globes and the Oscar nominations, James King gives his Top Movie Picks to watch this weeked;
Whiplash: Tense and exhilarating drama that'll make you look at life through fresh eyes (and maybe take up the drums). Miles Teller stars as an ambitious music student struggling to cope with the teacher from hell (an unforgettable JK Simmons).
Wild: Reese Witherspoon is entirely awards-worthy as a woman searching for enlightenment as she hikes solo up the Pacific coast of the US. Based on a true story.
Into The Woods: Frothy but fun adaptation of Sondheim's classic fairytale singalong, with standout supporting turns from Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp.
Foxcatcher: Steve Carell shows off his serious side in this true (and traumatic) story of an oddball millionaire obsessed with Olympic sportsman Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum).
The Theory Of Everything: The story of Stephen and Jane Hawking gets turned into a high-class box-office hit thanks to peerless performances from Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones.
