Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • U
  • 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.

Insurgent

Insurgent
  • 2015
  • US
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Robert Schwentke
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller

Tris (Woodley), Four (James) and the remnants of the Dauntless race tirelessly hither and thither in part 2 of the Divergent series. Woodley does very well with what she's given, but the other parts are underwritten and it all feels like a build-up to the extended finale of this bewildering and hardly essential franchise.

The DUFF

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.

Fast & Furious 7

Furious 7
  • 2015
  • US
  • 140 min
  • 12A
  • 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
  • US
  • 15
  • 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.

  • Directed by: Tim Johnson
  • 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 confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice make for a grating experience.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Hot Tub Time Machine 2
  • 2015
  • US
  • 93 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Steve Pink
  • Written by: Josh Heald
  • Cast: Adam Scott, Angela Kerecz, Clark Duke

Lou (Corddry), Nick (Robinson) and Jacob (Duke) use the titular time machine to go to 2025, in an attempt to find out who shot Lou in the groin. John Cusack is sorely missed in this over-complicated sequel, which relies on crass, frat-boy humour and pop culture references for the few cheap laughs it manages to get.

  • 15
  • 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.

A Little Chaos

A Little Chaos
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • 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.

Marvel Triple Bill

Marvel Triple Bill
  • 2012/2014/2015
  • US
  • 12A

Not for the faint-hearted, this triple viewing includes Avengers Assemble, Captain America: Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron. So you'll need three boxes of popcorn. At least.

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.

The Penguins of Madagascar

The Penguins of Madagascar
  • 2014
  • US
  • 92 min
  • U
  • 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.

  • U
  • Directed by: Carlos Saldanha
  • Written by: Don Rhymer, Carlos Saldanha
  • Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Leslie Mann, Bruno Mars, Jemaine Clement, George Lopez, Jamie Foxx, will.i.am

Blu (Eisenberg) and Jewel (Hathaway) travel to the Amazon to discover Jewel's family, but old adversary Nigel (Clement) is keen on revenge. Amiable sequel to the macaw-themed 2010 original; despite dubious racial stereotyping in the supporting cast, there's enough colour and incident to make for passable family entertainment.

The Salvation

The Salvation
  • 2015

  • Directed by: Kristian Levring
  • Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Eric Cantona

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.

  • Cast: Jai Courtney, Olga Kurylenko, Russell Crowe

Connor (Crowe) is an embittered Australian farmer after WW I who, following the suicide of wife Eliza (McKenzie), goes to Turkey in the hope of finding the bodies of his dead sons. Crowe as director fashions a sombre, intelligent and surprisingly assured historical drama, with fine performances.
