  • Directed by: Robert Zemeckis
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, Jared Harris

Max (Pitt) is a Canadian intelligence officer who parachutes into French Morocco in 1942 so that he can pose as the husband of Resistance agent Marianne (Cotillard). A clean-cut Casablanca wannabe with nice supporting turns, but while the stars look fantastic, they seem awkward and it never really comes to life.

Bad Santa 2

Bad Santa 2
  • 2016
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mark Waters
  • Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Tony Cox, Brett Kelly, Kathy Bates, Christina Hendricks

Willie (Thornton) has slid back to rock bottom when his estranged accomplice Marcus (Cox) returns with the promise of a big payday. The first film was foul-mouthed, politically incorrect, lewd and rude, but also bracing and very funny. This is just bludgeoning, misanthropic and depressing and should never have been made.

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.

Bleed For This

Bleed For This
  • 2016
  • 116 min

  • Directed by: Ben Younger
  • Cast: Miles Teller, Ted Levine, Katey Sagal

The story of Vinny Pazienza (Teller), a kid from Rhode Island who became a boxing champion, suffered a devastating tragedy and fought another battle to reclaim his life. Workmanlike boxing and redemption drama, all too reminiscent of many others; it doesn't help that Teller's Vinny is a stubborn, obnoxious ass who it's hard to care about.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Scott Derrickson
  • Written by: Steve Ditko, Thomas Dean Donnelly, Joshua Oppenheimer, Jon Spaihts
  • Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams

When brilliant but arrogant neurosurgeon Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch) gets his hands mangled in a car crash, he visits Kathmandu to be reborn under the mystic tutelage of the Ancient One (Swinton). A blast: fresh performances from Cumberbatch and Swinton power a dynamic script with well-measured puns and even a little wistful poetry.

  • 2016

  • Directed by: Kelly Fremon Craig
  • Cast: Hailee Steinfeld, Haley Lu Richardson, Blake Jenner, Woody Harrelson

Nadine (Steinfeld) is a smart, self-obsessed, suburbanite teenager whose best friend Krista (Richardson) jumps into bed with her sporty brother Darian (Jenner). Refreshingly smart, acerbic, articulate teen dramedy with a strong performance from Steinfeld and Harrelson engagingly combative as her teacher. Predictable? Maybe. Worthy of comparison with The Breakfast Club? Hell yes.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston

Newt Scamander (Redmayne), a socially-challenged animal whisperer of sorts, has to gather up the fantastic beasts which have escaped from his briefcase and are roaming 1920s New York. A suitably magical spin-off, with Rowling's screenplay skilfully balancing dark and light, and director Yates maintaining a thrilling pace and exciting spectacle.

Lion
  • 2015
  • Australia/UK/US
  • Directed by: Garth Davis
  • Written by: Saroo Brierley, Luke Davies
  • Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman

The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.

Moana

Moana
  • 2016
  • US
  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk

Moana (Carvalho) is a Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and doesn't bother with a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

The Chicago division of tech company Zenotek is facing the prospect of being shut down by hard-hearted CEO Carol (Aniston) when branch president Clay (Miller) steps in to throw a Christmas party. Funny and imaginative seasonal comedy with great work from Miller as the lovable wastrel and a fine supporting cast (Munn, McKinnon) adding to the hilarity.

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.

The story of Edward Snowden, the former CIA employee who in 2013 leaked thousands of classified documents to the Guardian, revealing the scope and reach of the USA's global surveillance program. Smartly dramatised and absorbing drama with fine performances from all, with Gordon-Levitt completely convincing as the earnest, idealistic Snowden.

Sully
  • 2016

  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney

The story of pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger (Hanks), who became an unassuming hero in 2009 after successfully ditching a US Airways Airbus 320 on the Hudson River. Eckhart gives strong support as co-pilot Jeff Skiles but the film belongs to Hanks, whose understated performance, with the skilful re-enactments of the crash, make for riveting drama.

  • 2016
  • UK
  • 97 min
  • PG
  • 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.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 92 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Mike Mitchell
  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, Gwen Stefani

Trolls are cute creatures who love EDM and warm hugs, but they're preyed on by Bergens, toothy monsters who think eating Trolls will bring happiness. Hyperactive buddy movie with dazzling visuals and lots of ditzy fun, but not as fresh or original as some of the competition.
