TINKER­BELL AND THE SE­CRET OF THE WINGS 3D Di­rected by Bobs Gan­n­away and Peggy Holmes. Voices of Mae Whit­man, An­jel­ica Hus­ton, Lucy Hale, Lucy Liu, Ti­mothy Dal­ton It's all kick­ing off in Tin­kers’ Nook, where the pro­le­tariat fairies are fran­ti­cally pro­duc­ing the snowflake bas­kets for ex­port to the Win­ter Woods. Un­de­terred by the rul­ing cap­i­tal­ist or­der, Tinker “Che” Bell (Whit­man), stows away with a bor­der-cross­ing snow owl. She un­cov­ers a sec­ond, colder world of pro­duc­ers and pas­sive wee folk own­ers – and her own dop­pel­ganger. G cert, gen re­lease, 75 min

TURN ME ON, GO­DAMMIT! Di­rected by Jan­nicke Sys­tad Ja­cob­sen. Star­ring He­lene Bergsholm Hell is boys and lip­gloss. In a sleepy Nor­we­gian bor­ough, 15-year-old Alma grap­ples with om­niv­o­rous hor­mones and pol­y­sex­ual day­dreams. Ev­ery­one Alma meets – really, ev­ery­one – is fod­der for sex­ual fan­tasies, none more so than Ar­tur, the tall, mono­syl­labic boy from down the street. When Ar­tur ex­poses him­self to Alma, how­ever, her friends are not in­clined to be­lieve her ac­count of events. Alma’s sub­se­quent un­pop­u­lar­ity forms the spine of this tart coming-ofage tale. Club, lim­ited re­lease, 76 min THE TWI­LIGHT SAGA: BREAK­ING DAWN – PART 2 Di­rected by Bill Con­don. Star­ring Kris­ten Ste­wart, Robert Pat­tin­son, Tay­lor Laut­ner, Billy Burke, Michael Sheen, Dakota Fan­ning The fran­chise is fi­nally placed in its tomb (for now) with an epic ad­ven­ture that finds the vam­pire lovers or­gan­is­ing an as­sault against their camp Vol­turi en­e­mies. As ever, the pic­ture strikes a few bum notes (the Ir­ish vam­pires are hi­lar­i­ous). But Break­ing Dawn 2 of­fers an ef­fi­cient, mildly touch­ing, morally unim­peach­able con­clu­sion to a chron­i­cle that has left an in­deli­ble im­pact on con­tem­po­rary pop­u­lar cul­ture. The leads are as charis­matic as ever. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 115 min
