Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant
  • 2017
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Written by: Michael Green
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Demián Bichir, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez

The spaceship Covenant ends up on an unknown planet littered with little egg things, which can’t be good. The latest in the franchise is basically an excuse for Scott’s fantastic visuals and a series of more or less ingenious variations on grisly death, although some will enjoy the spectacle of Fassbender kissing himself.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tom McGrath
  • Written by: Marla Frazee/Michael McCullers
  • Cast: Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi

The Boss Baby (Baldwin) is a tot with the mannerisms of a ruthless corporate tycoon, who upsets seven year old Tim (Bakshi). The frantic visual style and crude slapstick overwrite the charm of the original story by Marla Frazee, and there’s not much for audiences to take to their hearts.

Colossal

Colossal
  • 2017
  • Spain
  • 110 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nacho Vigalondo
  • Cast: Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Austin Stowell, Dan Stevens

Jilted, listless, alcoholic writer Gloria (Hathaway) returns to her hometown to be welcomed by childhood friend Oscar (Sudeikis), but reports come in of a giant monster terrorising Seoul. A sensationally strange and sometimes raucously enjoyable combination of slacker indie comedy and monster movie, with a welcome sense of anarchy.

A Dog's Purpose

A Dog's Purpose
  • 2017
  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström
  • Cast: Josh Gad, Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton

A wild puppy named Toby (Gad) is euthanised and reborn as a farm dog in the 60s, and then dies only to come back as a police dog, which then takes a bullet…and so on. Painfully manipulative cornball drama with laboured slapstick, romantic clichés and heavy-handed lessons, a high-cholesterol dog’s dinner.

Fast & Furious 8

Fast and Furious 8
  • 2017
  • US
  • 136 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: F. Gary Gray
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren

Cyber-terrorist Cypher (Theron) pits rogue racer Dom (Diesel) against his fellow petrolheads, including wife Letty (Rodriguez). Baffling and inconsequential story aside, it’s all shamelessly about car-based action, and although human doorstop Diesel isn’t up to the story’s limited emotional demands, Johnson and Statham make up for it with some grade-A squabbling.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 137 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Gunn
  • Written by: James Gunn
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Kurt Russell

The gang are back, with a rollicking plot involving stolen batteries and Ego (Russell) who may or may not be the long-lost dad of Peter Quill (Pratt). It’s very CGI-heavy, sometimes tiringly so, but the humour still charms and the finale picks it up after a sluggish second act.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword
  • 2017
  • United Kingdom
  • 126 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Annabelle Wallis, Hermione Corfield

Arthur (Hunnam) is the ‘bastard son of a prostitute’, or so he thinks; then he discovers his power when he draws the sword Excalibur from its resting place. Brash, bold and noisy retelling of the myth, with armed elephants, lots of shouting and too much reliance on CGI trickery.

The LEGO Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris McKay
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes

Batman (Arnett) is such a self-absorbed loner that even the Joker (Galifianakis) is peeved that Bats won’t recognise him as his greatest enemy, so the villain constructs a dastardly plot that incorporates every villain he can find, including the Daleks. Packed with gags and inventiveness, it’s tremendous fun.

Lion

Lion
  • 2015
  • Australia/UK/US
  • 118 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Garth Davis
  • Written by: Saroo Brierley, Luke Davies
  • Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman

The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.

Manchester By The Sea
  • 2016
  • US
  • 135 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Kenneth Lonergan
  • Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol

Lee (Affleck) is a carefree small-town guy who, when his brother dies, is given the job of raising his nephew (Hedges). A masterful blend of high drama, quirky characterisations and incidental detail, with a soulful, heartbreaking turn by Affleck at its core.

Moana

Moana
  • 2016
  • US
  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing lack of a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge
  • 2017

  • 129 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg
  • Cast: Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom

Captain Jack (Depp) and friends are on a mission to obtain the trident of Poseidon before ghoulish Captain Salazar (Bardem) can get his hands on it. A partial return to form for the franchise, with Bardem vigorous as Jack’s nemesis and a winning performance from Scodelario as an astronomer. It’s all too crowded but it manages to stay afloat.

  • Directed by: Garth Jennings
  • Written by: Garth Jennings
  • Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Tori Kelly, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Scarlett Johansson

Koala impresario Buster Moon (McConaughey) decides to save his ailing theatre with a singing competition. Most of the humour comes from cute critters singing occasionally inappropriate songs; the plot is spread far too thin and there no real surprises, but it ticks the usual boxes.

Sleepless

Sleepless
  • 2017
  • USA

  • Directed by: Baran bo Odar
  • Cast: Jamie Foxx, Michelle Monaghan, Dermot Mulroney

Vegas undercover cop Vincent Downs (Foxx) has to rescue his kidnapped son from a mobster (McNairy). Preposterous and inferior remake of boffo French action flick Sleepless Night; basically one brutal fight after another, but fans of the agreeable Foxx may find it entertaining.

Snatched

  • Cast: Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn, Wanda Sykes, Joan Cusack

When Emily (Schumer) is dumped by her boyfriend and fired from her job, she decides to take her mother (Hawn) on a romantic getaway to Ecuador. Then they get kidnapped. Madcap escapades, gross-out and slapstick abound, and while not all the jokes land and it’s more than a bit culturally insensitive, there’s fun to be had.
