Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass
  • 2016
  • US
  • 113 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Mia Wasikowsksa, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen

Alice (Wasikowska) has to travel back in time to help the Mad Hatter (Depp), to the annoyance of Time (Baron Cohen). Nimble blockbuster with a good blend of mirth and melancholy, and director Bobin never lets the CGI swamp the story in the way Burton did in the first film.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
  • 2015
  • US
  • 86 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Walt Becker
  • Written by: Ross Bagdasarian, Janice Karman, Randi Mayem Singer
  • Cast: Jason Lee, Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Bella Thorne, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Tony Hale

The three squeaky-voiced vermin hit the road on a mission to stop their owner Dave (Lee) from proposing. A passing reference to John Waters' 1972 cult classic Pink Flamingos, which features an infamous excrement-eating scene, highlights the extent to which this film serves pretty much the same substance to the viewer.

The Angry Birds Movie

The Angry Birds Movie
  • 2016
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Clay Kaytis/Fergal Reilly
  • Written by: Jon Vitti
  • Cast: Peter Dinklage, Kate McKinnon, Jason Sudeikis

Red (Sudeikis), a notably angry bird, joins an anger management class and makes some friends, but then green pigs arrive in the neighbourhood. Amusing if delayed adaptation of the smartphone game, with plenty of gags and puns for accompanying adults.

Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods

Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods
  • 2014
  • France/Belgium
  • 85 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Louis Clichy, Alexandre Astier
  • Cast: Jack Whitehall, Nick Frost, Greg Davies, Matt Berry, Catherine Tate, Harry Enfield, Dick & Dom, Jim Broadbent

Julius Caesar devises a plan to assimilate the indomitable Gauls by building a luxury housing development in the forest surrounding their village. Much the slickest animated Asterix adaptation, with a sharply-written script which combines satire on capitalism with people being hit in the face with fish; the British dub also has some inspired voice casting.

  • 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.

The BFG

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.

Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne
  • 2016
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Greengrass
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Julia Stiles

Jason Bourne (Damon) is back with a vengeance, literally this time, as information about the death of his father leads him to go up against CIA Director Dewey (Jones) and new nemesis Heather Lee (Vikander). Stonking action, high stakes, amazing chases, Damon is sensational: the perfect 'soft reboot'.

Brotherhood
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • 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.

David Brent: Life on the Road

Life on the Road
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ricky Gervais
  • Written by: Ricky Gervais
  • Cast: Ricky Gervais, Doc Brown, Andy Burrows, Rebecca Gethings

David Brent (Gervais) takes unpaid leave to pursue rock stardom with his band Foregone Conclusion. The skin-crawling songs are worth the price of admission, although the comedy feels crueller than before, and after a brilliant start and amusing middle, the film dissolves into cheap sentiment.

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.

  • Directed by: David F Sandberg
  • Cast: Maria Bello, Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman

Sophie (Bello), a woman with a history of mental health issues, finds herself stalked by an entity that only comes out when the lights are turned off. Skilfully-made if bleak debut by Swedish writer-director, with convincing work from Bello and some grippingly tense sequences.

  • USA/Thailand
  • 99 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Dennis Gansel
  • Cast: Jason Statham, Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones, Michelle Yeoh, Sam Hazeldine

Five years on, Arthur Bishop (Statham) is living the quiet life in Rio when he's sucked back into the world of assassination. It's all rather silly and while Statham is fully committed, Hazeldine leaves little to the imagination and Alba is little more than a narrative device in a bikini.

  • 98 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jake Szymanski
  • Written by: Andrew J. Cohen, Brendan O'Brien
  • Cast: Zac Efron, Adam DeVine, Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza

Mike (deVine) and Dave (Efron) need to bring dates to sister Jeanie (Beard)'s wedding. They find Tatiana (Plaza) and Alice (Kendrick); the gag is that Mike and Dave are drunken idiots who always go too far, but so are Tatiana and Alice. Bawdy bro-comedy with some outrageously funny (and surprisingly sweet) moments.

Nine Lives

Nine Lives
  • 2016
  • US

  • Directed by: Barry Sonnenfeld
  • Cast: Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner, Robbie Amell, Christopher Walken

Tom Brand (Spacey) is a Trump-style entrepreneur who gets swapped into the body of a cat: one week before change irreversible, must learn life lessons, etc. Dim-witted children's comedy with a ridiculous premise, rubbish effects, heavy sentiment and a phoned-in voice performance from Spacey.

  • 2016

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.

  • Cast: Elizabeth Mitchell, Frank Grillo, Mykelti Williamson

In 2040, the sole survivor of a Purge killing is now a US senator (Mitchell) running for President, and she and her head of security find themselves out in the streets on Purge night. Exciting, brutal and dumb in equal measures, although it runs out of steam in its final act.

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.

  • Cast: Blake Lively, Óscar Jaenada, Brett Cullen, Sedona Legge

Surfer Nancy (Lively) is enjoying the waves on an isolated Mexican beach when she's menaced by a great white shark. Skilful plotting and pacing, and a terrific performance from Lively, make this an unusually gripping and moving summer thriller.

  • Directed by: Steve Martino
  • Written by: Bryan Schulz, Charles M. Schulz
  • Cast: Francesca Capaldi, Madisyn Shipman, Noah Schnapp

Charlie Brown (Schnapp) is an anxious schoolboy who wants to impress a cute red-haired girl, but only his inspirational dog Snoopy can show him the way. Reverential, crowd-pleasing animation which scores by keeping the stakes small and the scale personal, with some exhilarating set-pieces as Snoopy pursues his Red Baron nemesis.

From the ashes of the Empire, the villainous First Order rises up to destroy Luke Skywalker (Hamill) – but where is he? Fans can rejoice: Episode VII is sensational and surprisingly emotional, with a finely-crafted script and effects that never overpower the performances. Star Wars is back in a big way.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 123 min

  • Directed by: David Ayer
  • Cast: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne

A group of incarcerated supervillains is recruited to undertake dangerous missions. The result is so conventional, it's twee: Deadshot (Smith) just wants to be a good dad, Diablo (Hernandez) spends the whole film moping and Harley Quinn (Robbie)'s idea of bad behaviour is breaking a window. With unconvincing effects and cliché-ridden dialogue, it's plain awful.

  • 2016
  • UK
  • 97 min

  • Directed by: Philippa Lowthorpe
  • Cast: Rafe Spall, Andrew Scott, Kelly Macdonald, Jessica Hynes, Harry Enfield

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.

War Dogs
  • 2016
  • US
  • 114 min
  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Miles Teller, Jonah Hill, Ana de Armas, Bradley Cooper

Miami massage therapist David (Teller) hooks up with old schoolfriend Efraim (Hill), and the pair go into arms trading. Frenetic, foul-mouthed and frequently hilarious, and loosely based on a true story; Hill and Teller are utterly watchable, even if it's clear that the filmmakers are a little too in love with them.
