Amy

Amy
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia

Documentary on Amy Winehouse, charting her career from her early days to superstar status and subsequent fall. Kapadai creates an incredibly intimate look at the singer, with clips of her lighter side underlining the gravity of her loss. Punchy, provocative and just plain sad.

Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 105 min
  • U
  • 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.

Globe On Screen: Comedy Of Errors

Globe On Screen: Comedy Of Errors
  • 2015
  • 180 min

A hectic tale of cross-purposes, slapstick and social nightmare as two sets of estranged twin brothers get mixed up in sorcery.

Jurassic World

Jurassic World
  • 2015
  • US
  • 124 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson

Dino-geek Gray (Simpkins) visits Jurassic Park with brother Zach (Robinson); the park's manager, their aunt Claire (Howard), is less than attentive until a new creation runs amok and raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) steps in. Despite a merely functional screenplay, it has enough scares, scale, ideas and variety to keep everyone entertained.

Knock, Knock

Knock, Knock
  • 2015
  • Chile/US
  • 96 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Eli Roth
  • Cast: Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, Ana de Armas

This home invasion thriller sees Reeves play devoted husband and father Evan Webber, who gets in a little too deep when two suspiciously perky girls, Bel (de Armas) and Genesis (Izzo) appear on the scene. Though Reeves' role makes good use of his likeable screen presence, Knock Knock brings Keanu back to earth in unceremonious fashion. The film at least feeds on the self-deprecating humour that laced his performances in The Matrix and Speed, and in the end, his game performance provides this grubby effort with an undeserved touch of class.

Magic Mike XXL

Magic Mike XXL
  • 2015
  • US
  • 115 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Greg Jacobs
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer

Mike (Tatum) takes a weekend away from his business to join his stripper buddies on a road trip to … a stripping convention. Winning blend of male bonding and female fantasy, with the men much more likable than most all-male comedy ensembles. As sweet and steamy as fresh cherry pie.

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.

Mr. Holmes

Mr. Holmes
  • 2015
  • UK/US
  • 104 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Laura Linney, Hattie Morahan, Hiroyuki Sanada, Patrick Kennedy

Sherlock Holmes (McKellen) is 93 and living in with his stern housekeeper (Linney) and her son (Parker); the aged detective is still haunted by a case from 30 years before. McKellen is superb, Linney is on form and while the unhurried pace will frustrate some, if you like a meditative Holmes, this is for you.

Spy

Spy
  • 2015
  • US
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Alison Janney, Jude Law

Susan (McCarthy) is a CIA office worker, the support to super-spy Bradley Fine (Law); when disaster strikes, Susan's withering boss Elaine (Janney) sends her into the field. Funny, exciting and genuinely ambitious spy spoof with an appealing performance from McCarthy, and Byrne exceptional as the arrogant villainess. Hugely likable.

Ted 2

Ted 2
  • 2015
  • US
  • 116 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Seth MacFarlane
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane, Jessica Barth

Though the novelty factor of the original has disappeared, the return of foul-mouthed teddybear Ted (voice of MacFarlane) and his best bro and thunder buddy John (Wahlberg) is a welcome one. This shamelessly puerile comedy begins after our furry friend and his new wife Tami-Lynn (Barth) are denied the chance to adopt a baby, and sees Ted embark on a crusade to New York to appeal against the decision and reclaim his liberties. This sequel is lewd and loud, and for every gag that flops, two belters are right behind it.

Terminator Genisys

Terminator: Genisys
  • 2015
  • US
  • 125 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Alan Taylor
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith

More time-travel hi-jinks as the Resistance battles Skynet and timelines collide all over the shop. Solidly workmanlike action sequences meet bewilderingly confusing writing and the characters are soon as lost as the audience, in what feels more like a parody of the franchise than the dawn of a new era.

Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast

Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast
  • 2014
  • US
  • 76 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Steve Loter
  • Cast: Voices of: Mae Whitman, Megan Hilty, Lucy Liu, Raven-Symoné, Anjelica Huston, Ginnifer Goodwin, Rosario Dawson, Mel B

When Tink's friend Fawn (Goodwin) befriends a mysterious creature in the woods, scout fairy Nyx (Dawson) decides to capture it before it can do any damage. The animation is agile and colourful and Goodwin delivers a likable central performance; it could have been funnier, but otherwise a charming addition to the franchise.
