DVD: Red Riding Hood (12)

Following her success with the first instalment of The Twilight Saga, the director Catherine Hardwicke has given the old fairy tale a modern makeover, casting the doe-eyed Amanda Seyfried (last seen singing her socks off in Mamma Mia!) as the hooded Valerie, and roping in Julie Christie for support as her grandmother.

Seen any good books lately?

The liberties film-makers take with characters and plot when they adapt well-loved novels too often spoil the stories for fans of the originals, argues Arifa Akbar

Dom Joly: I had a spot of bother on the Didcot line

I associate Christmas with pressure mostly – pressure to see people I don't really want to see, pressure to buy things that people don't want for people you don't like, pressure to give your kids the full "Christmas experience", bah humbug.... This was why I found myself in the admittedly glorious Mandarin Oriental hotel in London – slap bang in between Harrods and the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. The last time I was at this hotel, I was outside as a paparazzo, waiting for Pierce Brosnan to emerge. When he eventually did, he stamped on my foot and called me an "annoying fat fuck" while still smiling sweetly for the camera.

Simon MacCorkindale: British actor who played Greg Reardon in the US soap opera 'Falcon Crest' and Dr Harry Harper in 'Casualty'

DVD: The Ghost

A topical DVD this, considering that Roman Polanski’s film of Robert Harris’s political thriller revolves around Blairish memoirs.

Adam Riches Rides!, Pleasance Courtyard

“Do you know what I smell in this room?” bellows Adam Riches. “Fear!”. It’s little wonder. Audiences at this character comedian’s show rarely get off lightly. This year, those foolish enough to sit on the front row are invited/ forced to pose for pictures with a deadly beetle, shoot imaginary guns and, probably the worst option, become a milkmaid. Even those who aren’t pulled up on stage find themselves liberally spritzed with spit.

DVD: Remember Me (12)

Take the world’s most popular undead actor and the worst member of the cast of Lost, throw in Pierce Brosnan’s impression of a Wall Street banker imitating Vito Corleone and what do you get? Very little, it seems, as this lightweight romantic drama depicting the tangled lives of two New York students goes to show.
