Bad Moms

Bad Moms
  • 2016
  • US
  • 2016-08-19
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jon Lucas, Scott Moore
  • Cast: Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Annie Mumolo, Jada Pinkett Smith, Christina Applegate

Soccer mom Amy (Kunis), thwarted by the controlling PTA, befriends repressed Kiki (Bell) and outrageous Carla (Hahn). Rude, crude and raucous but nevertheless rather pleasing feelgood froth, championing bad behaviour as a solution to social repression.

Ben-Hur

Ben-Hur
  • 2016
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Timur Bekmambetov
  • Cast: Jack Huston, Morgan Freeman, Toby Kebbell, Nazanin Boniadi

Judah Ben-Hur (Huston) is a wronged nobleman who does a lot of stuff but chiefly races in a chariot against adopted brother Messala (Kebbell). Forgettable and largely pointless remake of the 1959 classic, heavy on the action but light on plot, characterisation or entertainment.

The BFG
  • 2016
  • US/UK
  • 117 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Written by: Roald Dahl (novel), Melissa Mathison (screenplay)
  • Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall

Eight year old Sophie (Barnhill) looks out her window one evening to discover something terrifying – the Big Friendly Giant (Rylance), who unlike his giant brothers doesn't actually want to eat her. Magical, funny and surprising stuff from Spielberg, lacking only some of the menace of Dahl's original, but genuinely heartwarming.

Bridget Jones's Baby
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sharon Maguire
  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey

Bridget (Zellweger) is back, and pregnant, either by handsome American Jack (Dempsey) or Mark (Firth), the ex she never got over. Cue babymaking shenanigans. Bridget's fretting about being a 'spinster' comes across as self-hatred, and the men don't deserve the poor treatment she gives them. Not cute, not charming; just awful.

  • 2016
  • UK
  • 104 min

  • Directed by: Noel Clarke
  • Written by: Noel Clarke
  • Cast: Noel Clarke, Ashley Thomas, Olivia Chenery

Sam (Clarke) is settled with a wife and baby, and is working two jobs to pay the bills, when his violent past comes back to, yes, haunt him. The final part of Clarke's trilogy has gripping momentum, some astute casting and a more mature attitude towards women, despite a silly honey trap narrative.

Deepwater Horizon

Deepwater Horizon
  • 2016
  • US
  • 108 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Berg
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich

The real-life tale of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, in which an oil rig explosion killed eleven men and caused the largest oil spill in American history. Berg touches on issues of corporate negligence and recklessness, but the real focus is on the courage of individuals such as Wahlberg's blue collar engineer. A solid nailbiter.

Don't Breathe
  • 2016
  • US
  • 88 min

Rocky (Levy), Money (Zovatto) and Alex (Minnette) rob rich people's houses, but when they break into the house of a blind Iraq War veteran (Lang) they get more than they bargained for. Nerve-shredding home invasion thriller with great control of suspense, surprise and pace.

  • Cast: Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Ty Burrell, Willem Dafoe

In the sequel to the much-loved Finding Nemo, annoyingly forgetful Dory goes on an adventure to find her family, crossing three oceans to get to them with Marlon and Nemo just a swish behind her.

  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sennia Nanua, Glenn Close, Paddy Considine

The Infiltrator

The Infiltrator
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 127 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Brad Furman
  • Cast: Bryan Cranston, John Leguizamo, Diane Kruger

Robert Mazur (Cranston) is a US Customs official who goes undercover to infiltrate the drug cartels and take down the notorious Pablo Escobar. Every cliché of the genre is present, from the resentful wife (Aubrey) to the impulsive assassinations, but Cranston is consistently sympathetic and Furman delivers the occasional sharp jab.

Kubo and the Two Strings

Kubo and the Two Strings
  • 2016
  • US
  • 102 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Travis Knight
  • Cast: Art Parkinson, Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, Brenda Vaccaro, George Takei

One-eyed origami expert Kubo (Parkinson) joins forces with no-nonsense Monkey (Theron) and goofy human/insect warrior Beetle (McConaughey) on a quest to defeat the Moon King (Fiennes). Breathtakingly beautiful stop-motion animation, maybe too scary for young kids, but with plenty of humour, fine voice performances and a story full of heart.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Antoine Fuqua
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Peter Sarsgaard, Haley Bennett

Sam Chisolm (Washington) is a bounty hunter tasked with ridding Rosewater Creek of evil prospector Bogue (Sarsgaard) and his goons, so he recruits the titular seven-minus-one. Unsubtle remake of the 1960 original; the stunt work may have improved but it's all a bit empty

  • 2016

  • Cast: Oakes Fegley, Oona Laurence, Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban

Forest ranger Grace (Howard) discovers orphaned Pete (Fegley), who has lived in the woods for six years with a mysterious dragon named Elliott. Lowery uses old-school charm and a sense of place to make a genial fable of grief and growth pains; one of the best kids' movies of the summer.

Frank (Rogen), a sausage, lives in a grocery store where he and his fellow foods excitedly look forward to life after being bought; but then he and hot-dog bun girlfriend Brenda (Wiig) learn the horrible truth. Rude, funny and unexpectedly profound, the best slice of adult animation since South Park.

Lake District, 1930: the plucky Walker siblings go up against fierce local gels Nancy and Peggy for possession of an island, while reclusive uncle Jim (Spall) is stalked by a sinister foreigner (Scott). Charmingly nostalgic kids' adventure, subtly modernised, with well-cast kids and Macdonald a pleasure as always. Sweetly satisfying as a cream tea.
