Arthur Christmas

Arthur Christmas
  • 2011
  • UK / US
  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: Sarah Smith
  • Written by: Peter Baynham, Sarah Smith
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton, Ashley Jensen, Ramona Marquez

Arthur Christmas (McAvoy) is the overlooked star of the Santa team, but when it looks like a small girl's present may not get delivered, he enlists the help of his curmudgeonly grandfather (Nighy). With characters boringly reflecting different degrees of niceness, this contrived family feud lacks the wit that made Aardman's name.

Die Hard

Die Hard
  • 1988
  • US
  • 2h 11min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John McTiernan
  • Cast: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Alexander Godunov

Willis plays a cop who attends a tower block Christmas party with his estranged spouse. The building is raided by terrorists, so it's left to Willis to bump off the baddies and save the hostages while the police and FBI languish ineptly on the sidelines. Unbearably tense actioner that gets good mileage out of yawning lift-shafts and flying bullets, while Willis is convincing as an ordinary guy trying to cope with it all. Watch out for Brit Rickman as a villain with a sense of humour.

Elf

Elf
  • 2003
  • US
  • 1h 36min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: David Berenbaum
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Bob Newhart, Ed Asner, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen

Buddy (Ferrell) is a big Elf who, though accepted in his Elvish community at the North Pole, manages to wreak havoc on a daily basis. Fed up and confused by his charge, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) sends him to the US in search of his true identity. Hilarious and puerile Yuletide comedy.

Fight Club

Fight Club
  • 1999
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Fincher
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter

Masculinity is in a mess and consumerism is to blame. Men have become docile spectators of life according to Fight Club, Fincher's controversial adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel. In reckless response to this late 20th century malaise, Norton's compliant spectator teams up with Pitt's mischievous Tyler Durden to form an arena for men to beat each other to a pulp and thus reconnect with the world. It's hit and miss, but enough of the punches connect.

Frozen 2

Frozen II
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
  • Cast: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff

Elsa (Menzel) and Anna (Bell) head off on a dangerous journey after Elsa hears voices calling her to a distant land. The plot is less involving than the character interaction, but Olaf (Gad) is the comedic highlight and while it may be less compelling than the original, it's got all the ingredients for a hit.

Sat 19 Dec

Gremlins

Gremlins
  • 1984
  • US
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joe Dante
  • Written by: Chris Columbus
  • Cast: Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates, Hoyt Axton, Frances Lee McCain, Corey Feldman

Cute and cuddly little mogwais become malevolent monsters if not properly cared for and wreak havoc in idealised small town America. A tongue-in-cheek Yuletide romp filled with in-jokes.

Sun 6 Dec

From Russia With Love

From Russia With Love
  • 1963
  • UK
  • 1h 56min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Terence Young
  • Written by: Ian Fleming
  • Cast: Sean Connery, Daniela Bianchi, Lotte Lenya, Robert Shaw, Pedro Armendáriz

The campest and silliest of the early Connery Bonds resurrected on new digital print. Beautiful clothes, beautiful women, gypsies, mad Russians and Robert Shaw with a bleached crop - great fun.

Sat 12 Dec

Goldfinger

Goldfinger
  • 1964
  • UK
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Guy Hamilton
  • Written by: Ian Fleming
  • Cast: Sean Connery, Shirley Eaton, Gert Fröbe, Honor Blackman, Harold Sakata, Bernard Lee, Tania Mallet

The one with Pussy Galore, Odd Job, Shirley Bassey belting it out, Shirley Eaton covered in gold and a typically over-the-top plot as mad Auric plans to break into Fort Knox. Much better on the big screen when it doesn't have to be crammed into the TV frame.

Sun 13 Dec

Live and Let Die

  • PG

  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe

When cyber-terrorists steal an MI6 hard drive, 007 is ordered to recover it. After the let-down of Quantum of Solace, the 23rd official Bond movie is a belter; the script is smart, Craig is better than ever, and Bardem is a thrilling villain. 50 years on from Dr No, it's a well-wrapped birthday present.
