  • 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.

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.

Bridget Jones's Baby

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.

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.

Hell or High Water
  • 2016
  • US
  • 102 min

  • Directed by: David Mackenzie
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Gil Birmingham

Career criminal Tanner (Foster) and his taciturn brother Toby (Pine) rob banks across Texas, pursued by gruff Texas Ranger Marcus (Bridges) and his partner Alberto (Birmingham). A winning combination of Heat-style action, social commentary and character comedy, with a sensational cast and an aching heart.

Ice Age: Collision Course

Ice Age: Collision Course
  • 2016
  • 100 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Mike Thurmeier/Galen T. Chu
  • Cast: Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Simon Pegg, Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah

Same story as always: global catastrophe threatens Sid, Manny and Diego and they have to get to safety. It manages to be relatively fresh, thanks to the increased amount of time given to accident-prone Scrat and his Tex Avery-ish antics in defence of his giant acorn; surely the lovable rodent has earned his own franchise.

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.

The Magnificent Seven

The Magnificent Seven
  • 2016
  • US
  • 132 min
  • 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

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Written by: Jane Goldman (screenplay), Ransom Riggs (novel)
  • Cast: Asa Butterfield, Eva Green, Ella Purnell, Chris O'Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, Judi Dench, Samuel L. Jackson

Teenager Jake (Butterfield), traumatised by the death of his grandfather (Stamp), goes to visit the titular home, where his grandfather grew up, run by eccentric Miss Peregrine (Green). Green is fun and memorable, so it's a pity that boring Jake is the main character and that the film is a whole is so disappointing and formulaic.

  • 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.

  • US
  • 91 min

  • Directed by: Chris Renaud, Yarrow Cheney

Little Max (Louis CK) is a small dog who gets very lonely when his beloved human Katie (Kemper) leaves each day. But then she brings home a huge, shaggy rescue mutt (Stonestreet) and hijinks ensue. Undeniably derivative but cute and energetic comedy sustained by its fine voice cast.

Supersonic

Supersonic
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 122 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mat Whitecross
  • Cast: Noel Gallagher, Liam Gallagher

The story of the Gallagher brothers and the band that made them famous, with plenty of eye-watering archive material from wobbly early rehearsals via life-changing first gigs to the 'biblical' 1996 Knebworth gigs, their career high point, which bookend the film. Richly sourced, with fresh voiceover interviews with both Gallaghers, it's highly watchable.
