This week on the Film Show The Herald movie man George Byrne and Insider Magazine's resident film buff Doug Whelan join Aoife Kelly to review new releases 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Step Up: All In'.

The big release of the week is the latest offering from the overflowing Marvel stable, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel, which kicks off an entirely new franchise for the studio. 

At a time when some of us are feeling a little Marvel fatigue, George explains why it's worth investing in the Guardians' world.

Doug Whelan (whose reviews feature in Insider Magazine with the Independent every Thursday), meanwhile, had the joyous task of sitting through Step Up: All In, the fifth instalment of the series.  However, he reveals it's not all bad (mostly, but not all).

Also, to celebrate the release of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' we have a Guardians goodie bag with backpack, t-shirt, sticker roll, USB drive and retro cassette tape phone cover to give away - just log on to Facebook.com/IndoEnts for details.
