Inside Out

Inside Out
  • 2015
  • US
  • 94 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pete Docter
  • Cast: Kaitlyn Dias, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith

Riley (Dias) is an 11 year old girl whose family is moving from Minnesota to San Francisco; her troubled mind is represented as a factory hub commanded by Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Sadness (Smith), Disgust (Kaling) and Anger (Black). Delightful, poignant and hysterically funny coming-of-age story from Pixar.

The Legend of Barney Thomson

The Legend of Barney Thomson
  • 2015
  • UK/Canada
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Robert Carlyle
  • Cast: Robert Carlyle, Emma Thompson, Ray Winstone

Barney (Carlyle), a downtrodden Glasgow barber, accidentally stabs his boss Wullie (McCole) to death, and then has to cover up the crime. Carlyle's directorial debut has some decent performances, including his own, but is seriously let down by a garbled, unfunny script, discordant photography and woefully dated gallows humour.

Minions

Minions
  • 2015
  • US
  • 91 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin
  • Written by: Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock

Prequel to the Despicable Me films, in which the pill-shaped, dungaree-sporting critters attach themselves to villain Scarlett Overkill (Bullock) and go to London to steal the Crown Jewels. The minions are as cute as ever but they seem funnier in support, and Bullock's character is one-dimensional.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie
  • Cast: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg

Ethan (Cruise) and the gang are on the trail of the nefarious Syndicate when their unit is dissolved by the CIA. With jaw-dropping action, ingenious gadgets and a striking performance from Ferguson as the mysterious Ilsa, this is a a slick, accomplished and hugely entertaining slice of mayhem.

Paper Towns

Paper Towns
  • 2015
  • US
  • 109 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Schreier
  • Written by: John Green, Scott Neustadter, Michael H Weber
  • Cast: Cara Delevingne, Nat Wolff, Cara Buono

Q (Wolff) and friends go on a trip to find Q's childhood friend and ultimate crush Margo (Delevingne), who has disappeared. This adaptation of John Green's novel tries to pick apart the cliché of the manic pixie dream girl but a fantastic supporting cast and indie pop soundtrack aren't enough to save it.

Straight Outta Compton

Straight Outta Compton
  • 2015
  • US
  • 146 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: F Gary Gray
  • Cast: Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, O'Shea Jackson Jr

Biopic of rap group NWA, focusing on the recording of their debut album, their subsequent fallings-out and eventual disintegration. Mitchell is excellent as Eazy-E and despite some second-half problem, it's punchy, provocative and packed with attitude, worthy of comparison with the similarly themed Boyz n the Hood and 8 Mile.

Trainwreck

Trainwreck
  • 2015
  • US
  • 125 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Judd Apatow
  • Cast: Amy Schumer, Tilda Swinton, Bill Hader, John Cena, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn

Journalist Amy (Schumer) is assigned by her editor (Swinton) to write a feature on sports doctor Aaron (Hader); she sleeps with him, then is boggled when he asks for a second date. The drama is sometimes forced, but Schumer's wit, honesty and edginess make her a standout protagonist, and the men too are refreshingly well-written.
