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.

  • 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.

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.

Interstellar

Interstellar
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US/UK
  • 169 min
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway

Cooper (McConaughey) is a pilot-turned-farmer who's recruited for an intergalactic mission to find humanity a new home. Despite awe and nail-biting tension, there's too much clunky exposition and cinematic clichés, and although Nolan's intentions to make a singular and cerebral film are admirable, it all gets a bit silly.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
  • 4 stars
  • 2012
  • US
  • 93 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Eric Darnell
  • Written by: Eric Darnell, Noah Baumbach
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer

Alex (Stiller), Marty (Rock), Melman (Schwimmer) and Gloria (Pinkett Smith) are pining for New York so they escape across Europe, only to find animal-hating Captain DuBois (McDormand) on their tails. Easily the best family film of 2012 so far, it’s a superb return to form after the lacklustre Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa.

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.

  • 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.

  • Directed by: Matthew Warchus
  • Written by: Stephen Beresford
  • Cast: Bill Nighy, Dominic West, Andrew Scott

During the 1984–84 UK miners' strike, a group of young lesbian and gay activists travel from London to Wales to help a mining community in trouble. Unashamedly fizzy and cheering take on a true story about two groups who bonded together against small-mindedness and vile tabloid headlines.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 101 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jonathan Liebesman
  • Cast: Megan Fox, Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, William Fichtner, Johnny Knoxville, Tony Shalhoub

Visually distinctive reboot of the franchise chronicling the adventures of four late-adolescent, martial-arts-trained, pizza-addicted chelonians and their intrepid reporter pal (Fox). The CGI-enhanced turtles are an improvement on their cinematic predecessors, Fox is commendably committed and Arnett is enjoyable as her smitten cameraman. Like its heroes' favourite food, exciting and loaded with cheese.
