DVD: The Love Guru, Retail & Rental, (Paramount)

The frustrating thing about 'The Love Guru' is is that Mike Myers still has expert comic timing, but he's shelved almost every form of humour except sniggering references to genitalia, flatulence and most varieties of bodily fluid: it's perhaps inevitable that the film climaxes with a pair of rutting elephants.

Review: Awake

The premise for this film hinges around a billionaire that suffers due to a failed anaesthetic, leaving him fully conscious during open-heart surgery and awake to the unfolding of a devious plot to steal his money. Sound improbable?

The Eye (15)

Jessica Alba sees dead people. That's the highly unexciting premise of this metaphysical chiller, based on the Asian horror film of the same name. She plays a blind concert violinist whose sight is restored by a cornea transplant, but along with these new peepers come the memories of the previous owner – and they're not cheery. In fact, poor old Jess comes face to face with the very shadow of death!

BOOK REVIEW / Stripped and ready for action: Roger Sabin reflects on the high hopes for the graphic novel this year

1992 was heralded as the time when graphic novels would finally attain respectability, with mainstream publishers committing themselves to the field. But it never happened. Apart from Art Spiegelman's magnificent Maus II (Penguin, pounds 8.99), there was only a stream of glossy, pretentious albums that tried to imitate other art-forms, notably films. Some publishers seem not to understand that comics work best as a medium in their own right.
