Annie

Annie
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 118 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Will Gluck
  • Cast: Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis, Rose Byrne

Annie (Wallis) leads a group of multi-racial foster kids in Harlem; when grumpy magnate Will Stacks (Foxx) saves her from being run over, he's persuaded to become her guardian. Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) has real screen presence, but it's largely forgettable.

Dumb and Dumber To

Dumb and Dumber To
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 109 min
  • Directed by: Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly
  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels

Twenty years after the original movie, Harry (Daniels) and Lloyd (Carrey) go on a road trip to find Harry's daughter Penny (Melvin). Despite some simple and effective gags the plot is too contrived with not enough payoff, and the Farrellys have retained their signature bad taste but left out the heart.

Frozen
  • 4 stars
  • 2013
  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Buck
  • Cast: Voices of Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel

Princess Anna (Bell) is disturbed to find that her sister Elsa (Menzel) can create ice and snow, but when Elsa goes into exile the kingdom freezes, and Anna and friends must find her. With no celebrity voice-overs or pop culture gags, just a venerable story, good songs and classic characters, it's an old-fashioned delight.

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK/US
  • 102 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Christopher Smith
  • Cast: Rafe Spall, Jim Broadbent, Warwick Davis

When Santa (Broadbent) crashes his sleigh just outside London and gets arrested, it's up to ex-con Steve (Spall) and his young son Tom (Connor) to organise a jailbreak and save Christmas. Broadbent and Spall are excellent and Scanlan is marvellous as a Trunchbull-like prison officer. An imaginative, madcap and sometimes macabre family movie.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US/New Zealand
  • 144 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Written by: Fran Walsh (screenplay), Philippa Boyens (screenplay), Peter Jackson (screenplay), Guillermo del Toro (screenplay), J. R. R. Tolkien (novel)
  • Cast: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Graham McTavish, Ken Stott, Hugo Weaving, James Nesbitt, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Billy Connolly, Evangeline Lilly, Christopher Lee, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Elijah Wood

Smaug's on the rampage, Thorin is consumed with greed and war breaks out. The final instalment of Jackson's Middle-earth adventures features moments of spirited action and some terrific performances, but like the other Hobbit films it pales in comparison to the episodes of the previous trilogy.

  • Written by: James Flynn/Dominic Paris

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 125 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Francis Lawrence
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore

Carving the final book in the Hunger Games series into two movies pays off, giving rhythm to a story that might otherwise have felt rushed. Action and politics are confidently balanced, Sutherland is deliciously vile as ever, Hutcherson is finally given something interesting to do and while Lawrence is rightly the star, the older actors are a pleasure.

Nativity 3: Dude, Where's My Donkey?!

Nativity 3: Dude, Where's My Donkey?!
  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 109 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Debbie Isitt
  • Written by: Debbie Isitt
  • Cast: Adam Garcia, Catherine Tate, Celia Imrie

The third film in the series sees the kids from St Bernardette's helping teacher Mr Shepherd (Clunes) recover from a donkey-inflicted bout of amnesia. The Christmas story is crossed with the formulaic dance movie, with results that may prove testing to short attention spans. Unnecessarily long and annoyingly repetitive.

  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • Directed by: Shawn Levy
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Dan Stevens, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Owen Wilson

Former museum nightwatchman Larry (Stiller), now a manager at New York's Museum of Natural History, goes to London to rekindle a magical object. Stiller looks bored, and despite some refreshing cameos and the last, shining glimpse of Williams, it's so laboured and lousy it makes you want to punch yourself in the face.

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

The Penguins of Madagascar

The Penguins of Madagascar
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 92 min
  • Directed by: Eric Darnell, Simon J. Smith
  • Cast: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, John DiMaggio, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, Peter Stormare

The espionage-savvy penguins team up with an interspecies special forces group, to tangle with octopus/scientist Dr Octavius Brine (Malkovich). The knockabout style offers few chances for genuine drama and the result is a lighthearted, frenetic but rather unimaginative romp, a step down from the psychedelic wit of Europe's Most Wanted.

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US/UK
  • 123 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Tom Prior

Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Wilde (Jones) lock eyes at a university party, but their budding love affair is given a blow by his diagnosis of motor neurone disease. Redmayne is astonishingly good and Jones inspires sympathy and admiration, but the script is never really convincing.

Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast

  • 76 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Steve Loter
  • Cast: Voices of: Mae Whitman, Megan Hilty, Lucy Liu, Raven-Symoné, Anjelica Huston, Ginnifer Goodwin, Rosario Dawson, Mel B

When Tink's friend Fawn (Goodwin) befriends a mysterious creature in the woods, scout fairy Nyx (Dawson) decides to capture it before it can do any damage. The animation is agile and colourful and Goodwin delivers a likable central performance; it could have been funnier, but otherwise a charming addition to the franchise.

  • Written by: Joel Coen (screenplay), Ethan Coen (screenplay) , Richard LaGravenese (screenplay), William Nicholson (screenplay), Laura Hillenbrand (book)
  • Cast: Jack O'Connell, Garrett Hedlund, Domhnall Gleeson

Staggering true story of Louis Zamperini (O'Connell), an Olympic runner who in WW II became a USAAF bombardier who was shot down, survived in a raft for days and ended up in a Japanese POW camp. Jolie's directorial skills are much improved, but there's just too much story going for any character development.

  • 2015
  • UK
  • 98 min

  • Directed by: Tom Harper
  • Cast: Helen McCrory, Jeremy Irvine, Adrian Rawlins, Oaklee Pendergast, Ned Dennehy

A group of children evacuated from the Blitz are placed in the dreaded Eel Marsh House, along with their teacher Eve (Fox), whereupon the titular spectre awakens and starts picking them off. A suspense-free, tedious sequel to the atmospheric 2012 movie, with cheap jump scares and a cliché-ridden screenplay.
