DVD & Blu-ray review: Gangster Squad (15)

Ruben Fleischer (110mins)

John Wayne acting the role of one-eyed marshall Rooster Cogburn in Harry Hathaway's film 'True Grit'

True Grit – a book, two films, and now... a personality trait

And if you have it, you're likely to achieve more in life

IoS DVD review: Dredd

I'd tell you to forget Sylvester Stallone's overblown Judge Dredd movie, but you probably already have.

DVD & Blu-ray: Men in Black III (PG)

"I was an agent for three years before I realised all models are aliens." Apart from the odd droll line – and a very amusing Andy Warhol "happening" – a lot of this third instalment feels undercooked, slightly tired, even the perennially perky Will Smith.

On the A-list: Bill Clinton with Streisand, who sang for him

A cool $100,000 to dine chez Barbra Streisand

Singer and actress gives $10m of her own money to research into why heart disease kills more American women than all cancers put together

Will Smith is Agent J, and Josh Brolin does an uncanny impersonation of Tommy Lee Jones as a young Agent K in <i>MIB 3</i>

Men In Black 3, Barry Sonnenfeld, 106 mins (PG)
What to Expect When You're Expecting, Kirk Jones, 110 mins (12A)

What we want from Smith and Jones is ray guns, bug-eyed monsters – and a lot more fun

Chalk Talk: Yee hah! The cowboy spirit that's driving our headteachers

It seems the trend of headteachers likening themselves to famous American cowboys is continuing.

Lisa Markwell: New talent comes in more than one shape or size

Breasts continue to be debated, frequently in an unhelpful way, most often by people who don't have them; photographs of women on holiday are making great sport for headlines about shifting weight for the New Year; and – although it's funny – the viral video doing the rounds for a fake beauty ad for an improving product called "Fotoshop, by Adobé" has a shifty undertone about a lady's supposed obsession with looking perfect.

DVD: You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger (12)

"I need direction," whines Gemma Jones's jilted wife to a swami (Pauline Collins).

DVD: True Grit, For retail &amp; rental (Paramount)

Other than being their first Western, this Oscar-nominated retread of a John Wayne classic is a typical Coen brothers' affair.

DVD: True Grit (15)

Jeff Bridges finally bagged his long-deserved Oscar for last year's flimsy Crazy Heart, but he's better in this far superior film, the Coen brothers' refreshingly straightforward and faithful take on Charles Portis's genre-bending Western novel from 1968.

Boxing: Froch earns place in final with champion's true grit

Carl Froch beat Glen Johnson to retain his World Boxing Council super-middleweight title on Saturday and reach the final of the Super Six tournament in the type of fight that leaves both fans and critics claiming victory.
