  • 2014
  • US
  • 142 min
  • 12A
  • 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.

  • 2 stars
  • 2014

  • 139 min
  • 12A
  • 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.

Days before the end of a six-month mission to the surface of Mars, the team is exposed to a fossilised bacteria that starts turning them into deadly space zombies.

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.

Britain, 1974: Professor Coupland (Harris) gets a group of students to conduct experiments on Jane (Cooke), in the hope of curing her mental troubles. Demonic goings-on ensue. Bogged down in backstory and exposition, this bland shocker does the revived Hammer Films brand no favours.

Blu (Eisenberg) and Jewel (Hathaway) travel to the Amazon to discover Jewel's family, but old adversary Nigel (Clement) is keen on revenge.
