Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass
  • 2016
  • US
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Mia Wasikowsksa, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen

Alice (Wasikowska) has to travel back in time to help the Mad Hatter (Depp), to the annoyance of Time (Baron Cohen). Nimble blockbuster with a good blend of mirth and melancholy, and director Bobin never lets the CGI swamp the story in the way Burton did in the first film.

  • Cast: Peter Dinklage, Kate McKinnon, Jason Sudeikis

Middle-class couple Perry (McGregor) and Gail (Harris) are dining in a Marrakech restaurant when a wealthy Russian criminal (Skarsgård) invites himself into their lives. despite all the cover-ups and conspiracies, it works best as a study of Perry and Gail's frayed relationship.

  • Directed by: Glenn Ficarra/John Requa
  • Cast: Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman

When news producer Kim (Fey) is given the chance to appear on screen by covering the War in Afghanistan, she grabs her big break. It takes a while to find its feet, but a well-cast Fey helps to make Kim's journey quite engaging, even though you may wish the film were a bit meatier politically.

X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse
  • 2016
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Written by: Michael Dougherty, Dan Harris, Simon Kinberg, Bryan Singer

Waking from a ten-year slumber, Apocalypse (Isaac) enlists Erik/Magneto (Fassbender) in his evil plans. Plenty of superficial excitement but a distinct lack of narrative ambition; with an extraordinary ensemble wasted in a franchise that's run dry of ideas.
