Chappie

Chappie
  • 2015
  • US
  • 120 min

  • Directed by: Neill Blomkamp
  • Cast: Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver

Weapons developer Deon (Patel) reprogrammes the titular police robot into self-awareness, but then the robot's kidnapped (by Yolandi and Ninja of Die Antwoord) as part of an underworld scheme. Yolandi is believable but Ninja is awful, and despite dynamic action sequences the approach to big themes is simplistic and badly mishandled.

  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

Insurgent

Insurgent
  • 2015

  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Robert Schwentke
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller

Tris (Woodley), Four (James) and the remnants of the Dauntless race tirelessly hither and thither in part 2 of the Divergent series. Woodley does very well with what she's given, but the other parts are underwritten and it all feels like a build-up to the extended finale of this bewildering and hardly essential franchise.

Fast & Furious 7

Furious 7
  • 2015
  • US
  • 140 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Wan
  • Written by: Chris Morgan
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Lucas Black, Jason Statham

Deckard (Statham) is a Special Forces assassin determined to get revenge on the team after his brother has been left in a coma. With the shark rapidly receding in the wake of the franchise's waterskis, the latest instalment is insane but has a puppyish desperation to please, and doesn't take itself too seriously.

  • Cast: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

Oh (Parsons) is part of an alien race who've colonised Earth by decanting humans to amusement parks in Australia, but he's forced to team up with lost little girl Tip (Rihanna). A confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice make for a grating experience.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

  • Directed by: Paul Tibbitt
  • Cast: Antonio Banderas, Clancy Brown, Tom Kenny

Life goes on at usual in Bikini Bottom until real-life pirate Burger-Beard (Banderas) causes apocalyptic mayhem; SpongeBob and arch-nemesis Plankton must team up to defeat him. Despite a lazy superhero plot twist in the final act, it has enough colourful characters and hilarious one-liners to keep both kids and adults entertained.

Moray's playhouse was hastily erected in 1932, opening with ‘Jack’s the Lad’ and ‘Mickey Mouse’. It was designed by AG MacDonald, the son of then Prime Minister Ramsay McDonald.
