  • 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.

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 95 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Jorge R Gutierrez
  • Cast: Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, Diego Luna, Ron Perlman

Manolo (Luna) and best friend Joaquin (Tatum) are both in love with feisty Maria (Saldana), but it all goes El Sur when squabbling gods La Muerte (del Castillo) and Xibalba (Perlman) make a wager over who'll win her. Lively, colourful animation exploring dark themes, with great gags, superb voice work, and a delightful soundtrack.

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.

Get Santa

Get Santa
  • 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.

  • Cast: Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, Chris Pine, Jamie Foxx

When Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) are conned by an unscrupulous tycoon (Waltz), they plot to kidnap his unctuous son (Pine). Limp sequel to the so-so original, with even the outtakes barely raising a smile.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

  • 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.

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
  • 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.

St Vincent

St Vincent
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 102 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Theodore Melfi
  • Cast: Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Jaeden Lieberher, Chris O'Dowd

Vincent (Murray) is a war hero turned lonely, misanthropic drunkard, who becomes a comically inappropriate babysitter to neighbour Oliver (Lieberher). Murray and Lieberher are a fine double act, Watts is a hoot as a pregnant Eastern European prostitute/pole-dancer, and despite a conventionally tear-jerking finale it's mostly scrappy and likable.
