  • 142 min

  • Directed by: Marc Webb
  • Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan

Peter Parker (Garfield) goes up against new supervillains Electro (Foxx) and Harry Osborn (DeHaan). Garfield and Stone have enormous chemistry, Foxx and DeHaan bring complexity and pathos, and the rebooted franchise continues to capture the original character's wise-cracking energy in a way that the Raimi trilogy didn't.

  • Directed by: Neil Burger
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet

In a dystopian future where people are assigned to different factions of society based on their talents, Tris (Woodley) discovers that she's dangerously multi-talented. The story seems over-familiar, director Burger takes too long to set things up and despite appealing performances from Woodley and James, there's little peril or excitement.

Gustave H (Fiennes), the flamboyantly orderly concierge of the Grand Budapest Hotel, likes to romance the elderly guests, but when his wealthy lover (Swinton) dies mysteriously, he finds himself framed for murder. Perhaps Anderson's most uncompromisingly eccentric and perfectly realised film to date, with an astonishing and revelatory comic performance from Fiennes.

  • Directed by: Phil Lord/Christopher Miller
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Cobie Smulders

Emmett (Pratt), a regular Lego construction worker, finds himself acclaimed as the 'Special', who will save the Lego universe from evil Lord Business. Fast, funny, blisteringly paced and hugely inventive, it's also so layered with ironic detachment that the attempt at a sincere final act falls flat; still, good fun for adults and kids.

Blu (Eisenberg) and Jewel (Hathaway) travel to the Amazon to discover Jewel's family, but old adversary Nigel (Clement) is keen on revenge. Amiable sequel to the macaw-themed 2010 original; despite dubious racial stereotyping in the supporting cast, there's enough colour and incident to make for passable family entertainment.
