American Sniper

American Sniper
  • 2014
  • US
  • 134 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Cast: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Jake McDorman

Eastwood, noted for his kinship with the common soldier, is the ideal director for this true-life drama based on the autobiography of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle (Cooper). Cooper continues to be impressive but the film unravels when it shows Kyle's home life, failing to engage with either marital or wider political issues.

Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6
  • 2014

  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Williams, Don Hall
  • Cast: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Génesis Rodríguez, T. J. Miller, Daniel Henney, Maya Rudolph

Hiro (Potter) is a 14-year-old robotics genius who, after a family tragedy, teams up with inflatable robot Baymax (Adsit) to become crimefighting superheroes. This Disney adaptation of a Marvel comic deals with dark themes of loss and grief but also has plenty of heart and some big laughs, especially from Adsit.

The Boy Next Door
  • 2015
  • US

  • Directed by: Rob Cohen
  • Written by: Barbara Curry
  • Cast: Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Kristin Chenoweth

Classics teacher Claire (Lopez) is seduced into a one-night stand by handsome psycho Noah (Guzman), who gives her a copy of the Iliad ("It's a first edition!" she gasps.) Hilariously bad stalker flick, a must-see for all the wrong reasons, most of which have to do with debut screenwriter Curry's howler-ridden script.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • 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.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey
  • 2015
  • US
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle

Despite its troubling gender politics and distinct lack of plot, the likeable Johnson brings nuance and charm to a paper-thin character; Dornan manages to offer a hint of humanity; and given the many constraints, this sleek, fairly trim and occasionally sensual adaptation is the best imaginable outcome.

  • Directed by: Glenn Ficarra/John Requa
  • Cast: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Rodrigo Santoro

Nicky (Smith) is a lifelong con man who takes wannabe swindler Jess (Robbie) under his wing, only to fall for her; dull romantic twists and not-very-ingenious stings ensue. The two stars have almost no chemistry and the film's greatest scam is that it fools you into thinking it's going to amount to more than it does.

Globe On Screen: The Duchess Of Malfi

Globe On Screen: The Duchess Of Malfi

The widowed Duchess of Malfi longs to marry her lover, the steward Antonio. But her rancorous brothers, Ferdinand and the Cardinal, are implacably opposed to the match. When their spy, Bosola, discovers that the Duchess has secretly married and carries Antonio’s child, they exact a terrible and horrific revenge.

The Duchess of Malfi, featuring Hollywood star Gemma Arterton in the title role, is a thrilling combination of brilliant coups de théâtre, horrific set-pieces and vivid characters, all lit by Webster’s obsessional imagination.

Gemma Arterton returned to The Globe to play the Duchess in this sell-out production. Gemma made her professional stage debut at the Globe in 2007, when she won huge critical acclaim as Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost.

This most intimate Jacobean tragedy proved a truly sensational curtain-raiser for The Globe’s very first season in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

The Globe On Screen production is the first ever theatrical production to be filmed entirely in candlelight - a unique and un-missable opening for the 2015 cinema season.

This is a recording of the live performance from The Globe Theatre.

Running time: 150 minutes - TBC

‘A dish of delicious horrors, served up in style’ ★★★★ - Metro

Into the Woods

  • US
  • 124 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Marshall
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, Johnny Depp

Disney's long-in-the-making adaptation of Sondheim and Lapine's musical, in which a clutch of fairytale characters help a baker (Corden) and his wife (Blunt) lift a curse which prevents them from having a baby. Despite some great moments, the story drags; if you're a fan it's likely to please, but it won't win anyone else over.

  • Cast: Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Olivia Luccardi

Jay (Monroe) is a Michigan teenager whose lover reveals that he's infected her with a potentially deadly curse. Sensitive, visually arresting and utterly disturbing horror about the possible consequences of a sexual encounter, with a deeply affecting performance from Monroe and an excellent supporting cast.

Kill the Messenger

Kill the Messenger
  • 2014
  • US

  • Directed by: Michael Cuesta
  • Cast: Jeremy Renner, Robert Patrick, Jena Sims

Based on the true story of Gary Webb (Renner), a reporter for the San Jose Mercury News, who uncovered dirty CIA activities in South America and who became the victim of a smear campaign as a result. Renner has considerable spark but overall it's excessively polemical, being more informative than entertaining.

  • 2015

  • Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
  • Cast: Colin Firth, Samuel L Jackson, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton, Michael Caine

Eggsy (Egerton) is a streetwise petty criminal, who debonair secret agent Harry (Firth) inducts into Kingsman, a super-secret spy organisation going up against bonkers, lisping billionaire Richmond Valentine (Jackson). Egerton is confident and engaging, Firth is visibly enjoying himself, and despite the odd puerile joke it's riotously entertaining.

  • 2014
  • US
  • PG
  • Directed by: Shawn Levy
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Dan Stevens, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Owen Wilson

Former museum nightwatchman Larry (Stiller), now a manager at New York's Museum of Natural History, goes to London to rekindle a magical object. Stiller looks bored, and despite some refreshing cameos and the last, shining glimpse of Williams, it's so laboured and lousy it makes you want to punch yourself in the face.

Paddington

Paddington
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

  • Directed by: Dean Israelite
  • Written by: Jason Pagan, Andrew Stark
  • Cast: Amy Landecker, Sofia Black-D'Elia, Ginny Gardner

When teenage brainiac David (Weston), his sister (Gardner) and his buddies find his late dad's blueprints for a time machine, they build it, like you do. It's aimed at those who've never seen classic time-loop films (Groundhog Day, Looper, Back to the Future etc) which is just as well, since it steals from them all, adds nothing and ends limply.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
  • 2015

  • Directed by: John Madden
  • Cast: Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Judi Dench

This sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (yes, you may have guessed) has an ensemble cast, and follows the expansionist dreams of Sonny. He has his eye on a second property, but there are still predicaments to resolve in his first.

Testament of Youth
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 129 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Kent
  • Cast: Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton

Vera (Vikander) is a wilful and intelligent English girl; when her friend Victor (Morgan), fiancé Roland (Harington) and brother Edward (Egerton) go off to fight in WW I, she follows them to be a nurse. Sparing and respectful adaptation of Brittain's 1933 memoir; tasteful rather than innovative, it still packs a punch.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 91 min

  • Directed by: Ken Scott
  • Written by: Steve Conrad
  • Cast: Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, Tom Wilkinson

Daniel (Vaughn) is a doting father and husband and the sensitive, indefatigable boss of Tim (Wilkinson) and Mike (Franco), who he takes on a business trip to Europe. Chaotic, meandering and unbelievable business comedy with admittedly great casting, even if Wilkinson gets too little screen time. Brainless, but heartfelt.

Affluent LA businessman Doug (Gad) is getting married to Gretchen (Cuoco-Sweeting) but he has no friends, so he contacts 'Wedding Ringer' Jimmy (Hart) who makes a living being the best man for grooms who don't otherwise have one. Crude and mirthless comedy squandering otherwise talented performers.
