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.

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'.

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.

  • US
  • 103 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Andrew Stanton
  • Written by: Victoria Strouse
  • Cast: Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Ty Burrell, Willem Dafoe

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.

Mechanic: Resurrection

Mechanic: Resurrection
  • 2015
  • 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.

National Theatre Live: The Deep Blue Sea

National Theatre Live: The Deep Blue Sea
  • 180 min

Nerve

  • USA
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Henry Joost/Ariel Schulman
  • Written by: Jeanne Ryan, Jessica Sharzer
  • Cast: Emma Roberts, Dave Franco, Emily Meade

Vee (Roberts) and Ian (Franco) become engaged in an online game that gifts them cash for carrying out increasingly risky dares. Roberts and Franco have great chemistry, but the silly plotline (adapted from Jeanne Ryan’s cliché-ridden YA novel), ugly gender politics and obvious conclusion make it a clumsy and preachy cautionary tale.

Nine Lives

Nine Lives
  • 2016
  • US
  • 87 min
  • PG
  • 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.

Pete's Dragon
  • 2016
  • US
  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Lowery
  • 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.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping
  • 2016
  • US

  • 15
  • Directed by: Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone
  • Cast: Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows, Imogen Poots, Joan Cusack, Maya Rudolph

Mockumentary about Conner (Samberg), ex-member of boy band The Style Boyz, whose attempt to get his solo career underway starts to falter. The songs are good and Samberg cleverly evokes Justin Bieber's heartfelt banality, but it relies too much on celebrity cameos rather than incisive bite.

  • US
  • 91 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris Renaud, Yarrow Cheney
  • Written by: Ken Daurio, Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Louis CK, Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Jenny Slate

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.

  • 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
  • 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.

War Dogs

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.
