From comedies of all hues to dramas both heart-rending and high-octane – whatever mood you’re in, we’ve got a movie to match it. It’s quite a claim, but you’ll know what we’re talking about once you take a look at our picks below…
 

1. For a riotous comedy sequel…

Daddy’s Home 2

Buy Daddy’s Home 2 on the Virgin Media Store or rent on Virgin Movies now. Cert 12

Back in 2015, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg had us all guffawing when they locked horns as a warring stepfather and biological dad in the excellent Daddy’s Home. They’re at it again in this hilarious sequel – but with their own contrasting papas on the scene (played brilliantly by John Lithgow and Mel Gibson), can they expect the holidays to go off without a hitch?
 

2. For a tear-jerking drama…

Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool

Buy Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool on the Virgin Media Store or rent on Virgin Movies now. Cert 15

Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot) stars as a young actor who falls in love with an ageing Hollywood actress (American Beauty’s Annette Bening) in this stunning romantic drama adapted from Peter Turner’s memoir. Vanessa Redgrave, Julie Walters and Stephen Graham all add to the star power in a film that was a big hit with the critics and earned Bell, Bening and screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh BAFTA nominations.
 

3. For a tale of epic courage…

Buy Only The Brave on the Virgin Media Store or rent on Virgin Movies now. Cert 12

The heat is well and truly cranked up in this biographical drama that tells the story of the elite crew of Arizona firefighters who battled 2013’s devastating Yarnell Hill Fire. Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men), Miles Teller (Whiplash) and Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski) lead the cast in a powerfully depicted account of bravery directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion).
 

4. For a dark satire…

Ingrid Goes West

Buy Ingrid Goes West on the Virgin Media Store now or rent on Virgin Movies from Monday 26 March. Cert 15

Described by The Guardian as “horribly enjoyable”, this pitch-black comedy will make you laugh and recoil in equal measure. Aubrey Plaza (Parks And Recreation) plays Ingrid Thorburn, a mentally unstable woman who moves to Los Angeles to stalk vapid Instagram star Taylor Sloane (Captain America: Civil War’s Elizabeth Olsen). That’ll end well…
 

5. For a sporting saga…

Battle Of The Sexes

Buy Battle Of The Sexes on the Virgin Media Store now or rent on Virgin Movies from Monday 26 March. Cert 12

This timely comedy drama takes a closer look at the events surrounding one of the most-watched sporting spectacles in history: the 1973 tennis match between male chauvinist former champ Bobby Riggs and female world number one Billie Jean King. Emma Stone (La La Land) gives an ace performance as the pioneering King, while Steve Carell (Despicable Me) is on fine form as the outlandish Riggs.
