Toy Story 3, Lee Unkrich, 120 mins (U)<br/>The Concert, Radu Mihaileanu, 120 mins (15)<br/>Rapt, Lucas Belvaux, 125 mins (15)

It's a wonderful comedy, a superb prison thriller, even a pretty scary horror film &ndash; but most of all, the final instalment in Pixar's 'Toy Story' is an unashamed tear-jerker about the poignancy of ageing

The Highlight Reel: Brewing trouble

Never mind a, ahem, booze-up in a brewery, tournament chiefs couldn't organise the resistance to a bevy of pretty Dutch ladies.

Katy Guest: Campbell's doing God after all, and it's my idea of hell

It is interesting that Alastair Campbell, the man who famously doesn't "do God" (except when it suits him), mentioned Psalm 56 when he wrote on his blog last week about the Iraq inquiry. "As I walked through the media scrum," he wrote, "I was glad to have read in the morning an email with Psalm 56 attached... 'What can mortal man do to me? All day long they twist my words, they are always plotting to harm me. They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps...'." Poor, virtuous Alastair, we all thought, smiting ourselves for our wickedness.
