Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • 2015
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joss Whedon
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Samuel L. Jackson

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much emotional impact.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut

Blade Runner: The Final Cut
  • 1982
  • US
  • 112 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer

Fifteen years on from the 1992 'Director's Cut', Scott has had another bash at his sci-fi opus which pitted Deckard (Ford) against a slew of replicants. Now a more linear, voiceover-free film noir, for once a great film has been made better thanks to advances in special effects technology and thoughtful rethinking.

  • 2015
  • 15
  • Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
  • Written by: Richard Price/Tom Rob Smith
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman

Leo (Hardy) is a military policeman in the Stalin-era Soviet Union, tasked with investigating a series of child killings that are unacknowledged by the state. Hardy and Rapace lead an excellent cast, and although it packs in a little too much it's a pleasingly pulpy thriller.

  • 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.

The DUFF
  • 2015
  • US
  • 101 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ari Sandel
  • Cast: Mae Whitman, Allison Janney, Bella Thorne,

When teenager Bianca (Whitman) is called out by her social circle as their DUFF – Designated Ugly Fat Friend – she decides to rid herself of the label. Heartfelt if somewhat formulaic comedy about staying true to yourself, with a smart script and outstanding performances from Whitman and Janney as her supportive single mother.

The Falling
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 15
  • Directed by: Carol Morley
  • Cast: Maisie Williams, Florence Pugh, Monica Dolan, Maxine Peake

Lydia (Williams) and Abbie (Pugh) are close friends at a late 60s British girls' school. When Abbie loses her virginity and an unexpected tragedy occurs, Lydia starts fainting at random; then her symptoms start to spread through the other students. Dark, twisted and thoughtful exploration of female anxieties and emotions, sprinkled with wonderfully deadpan humour.

Fast & Furious 7

Furious 7

  • Directed by: James Wan
  • Written by: Chris Morgan
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Lucas Black, Jason Statham

Deckard (Statham) is a Special Forces assassin determined to get revenge on the team after his brother has been left in a coma. With the shark rapidly receding in the wake of the franchise's waterskis, the latest instalment is insane but has a puppyish desperation to please, and doesn't take itself too seriously.

Get Hard

Get Hard
  • 2014

  • Directed by: Etan Cohen
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie

Hedge fund exec James (Ferrell) is to be sent to prison for fraud, so he persuades law-abiding car wash owner Darnell (Hart) to teach him how to survive in prison, on the grounds that Darnell is black. If you can stand lots of jokes about prison rape, it's occasionally brilliant, if somewhat uneven.

  • Cast: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

Oh (Parsons) is part of an alien race who've colonised Earth by decanting humans to amusement parks in Australia, but he's forced to team up with lost little girl Tip (Rihanna). A grating experience, thanks to a confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice.

  • Directed by: Chad Stahelski
  • Cast: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Dean Winters, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo, Willem Dafoe

John Wick (Reeves), a retired hitman in mourning for his wife, gets back in the game when mob kingpin's clueless son Iosef (Allen) kills his puppy. One of Reeves' best roles yet, in a stylish hitman-with-a-heart thriller crammed with satisfying action sequences, solid direction, innovative cinematography and terrific production design.

  • U
  • Directed by: Phil Lord/Christopher Miller
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Cobie Smulders

Emmett (Pratt), a regular Lego construction worker, finds himself acclaimed as the 'Special', who will save the Lego universe from evil Lord Business. Fast, funny, blisteringly paced and hugely inventive, it's also so layered with ironic detachment that the attempt at a sincere final act falls flat; still, good fun for adults and kids.

A Little Chaos
  • 2014
  • UK

  • Directed by: Alan Rickman
  • Cast: Kate Winslet, Helen McCrory, Stanley Tucci

Sabine (Winslet), a widowed landscape gardener in 1682 Paris, is commissioned to work on the gardens of Versailles, but her friendship with the head gardener (Schoenaerts) provokes the fury of his scheming wife (McCrory). Crowd-pleasing period drama; what it lacks in historical accuracy it makes up for with fine performances, an engaging story and strong direction from Rickman.

Paddington

Paddington
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min

  • 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: Eric Darnell, Simon J. Smith
  • Cast: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, John DiMaggio, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, Peter Stormare

The espionage-savvy penguins team up with an interspecies special forces group, to tangle with octopus/scientist Dr Octavius Brine (Malkovich). The knockabout style offers few chances for genuine drama and the result is a lighthearted, frenetic but rather unimaginative romp, a step down from the psychedelic wit of Europe's Most Wanted.

America, 1871: when Danish ex-pat Jon (Mikkelsen) kills the murderers of his wife (Fabricius) and son (Bjarke), he incurs the wrath of land baron Delarue (Morgan). Mikkelsen is terrific, Morgan is a despicable villain and Green, as a scarred mute, steals the movie without uttering a word. Impressive, well-made and passionately acted Western.

Life goes on at usual in Bikini Bottom until real-life pirate Burger-Beard (Banderas) causes apocalyptic mayhem; SpongeBob and arch-nemesis Plankton must team up to defeat him. Despite a lazy superhero plot twist in the final act, it has enough colourful characters and hilarious one-liners to keep both kids and adults entertained.

Maria (Mirren), an Austrian woman who escaped her homeland before WW II, teams up with lawyer Randol (Reynolds) in a fight to retrieve paintings stolen by the Nazis. Mirren and Reynolds have pleasing chemistry but Curtis fails to give this true story a clear direction or emotional impact.
