Johnny Depp and tim Burton team up for the eighth time (and the fifth time in succession) for this adaptation of a 70s soap opera about a vampire who awakes from a 200-year slumber to find the woman that turned him into a vamp in the first place (Eva Green’s vengeful witch Angelique) is still causing his family problems. He also finds the weird world of the Seventies – hippies, lava lamps, and MacDonalds a little confusing too.

It’s uneven, a couple of characters and plots get left by the wayside but Depp is on fine form as the culture-clash suffering vamp and Green is superb as the witch who can’t handle rejection. It’s Burton by numbers in many ways, the gothic stylings have been seen before, but it’s a grand old show he’s good at putting on.

How I Spent My Summer Vacation (15, Lionsgate, 112 mins)

%TNT Magazine% summer vacation

Mel Gibson is back as a leading man again, the kind he used to do so well and earned global fame portraying. Here, he’s a ruthless crook who has come unstuck and landed himself in a Mexican jail. There, he has to use his wits to survive, find a way to freedom, and protect a young boy with whom he becomes close. It’s wise-cracking and entertaining, not quite a bona fide comeback, more the first step on the lengthy road to recovery.

Quirky indie cinema from the American alt-cinema stars Mark and Jay Duplass, this slacker comedy drama stars Jason Segel as the titular Jeff, a lazy going nowhere sort, and Ed Helms as his well-meaning but usually unhelpful older brother as they spend a day in one another’s company learning all kinds of life lessons.

As needless a sequel as they come, the first featured Kelly Brook getting nibbled at by killer fish, this playful sequel sees David Hasselhoff spoofing his Baywatch days, and a host of other people get munched on by fish with a taste for flesh.
