Battle of the Sexes

Battle of the Sexes
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Andrea Riseborough, Elisabeth Shue

Based on the true story of the 1973 tennis match between unrepentant male chauvinist ex-no. 1 Bobby Riggs (Carell) and Wimbledon champion Billie Jean King (Stone). An irresistible story, with Carell finding the outrageous and the sad within Riggs, and Stone’s warm and forceful performance winning the film.

Brigsby Bear

Brigsby Bear
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 37min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Dave McCary
  • Cast: Kyle Mooney, Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes, Jane Adams, Mark Hamill

James (Mooney) was kidnapped as a boy by April (Adams) and Ted (Hamill) and was raised partly on a TV show that Ted made just for him, Brigsby Bear Adventures; as a man, James has to adjust to the real world. Weird and wonderful comedy drama which intelligently and sympathetically considers arrested development.

Daddy's Home 2

Daddy's Home 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, John Cena, John Lithgow, Mel Gibson

Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell) are now best of friends, but have to spend their holidays with their respective fathers (Lithgow and Gibson). A leaden-footed screenplay disgraces and humiliates everyone on screen, celebrating toxic masculinity and portraying women as either shrill party poopers or delinquent femme fatales. Worst film of the year.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

Justice League

Justice League
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa

A team of superheroes forms to fight an alien invasion led by chief baddie Steppenwolf (Hinds). As so often, the villain is less interesting than the heroes, being a soulless CGI creation, but Affleck and Gadot are growing into their roles and it’s a lot better than the lumbering Batman vs Superman.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

The Man Who Invented Christmas
  • 2017
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bharat Nalluri
  • Cast: Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce, Simon Callow, Donald Sumpter, Miriam Margolyes, Morfydd Clark, Justin Edwards, Ian McNeice, Bill Paterson

Charles Dickens (Stevens), down on his luck, is in desperate need of a hit when Ebenezer Scrooge (Plummer) pops into his head and starts offering pointers. Decent if occasionally twee adaptation of Les Standiford’s non-fiction book, with Stevens being sympathetic and energetic and Plummer clearly relishing a chance to do Scrooge.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran

Rey (Ridley) meets Luke (Hamill) to learn all about the Force. Johnson expands on the casualties-of-war theme, making magnificent, roaring action sequences and leading the viewer through a blood-stained moral labyrinth. Driver returns with a vengeance, Dern is terrific and it hits the sweet spot between nostalgia and gripping storytelling.

Suburbicon

Suburbicon
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Clooney
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, Noah Jupe

1959: in the dream community of Suburbicon, businessman Gardner Lodge (Damon) and his family are attacked in their home and his wife is killed. Then her sister (Moore) moves in, and suspicion is aroused. Jaunty, jarring mix of dark comedy and social commentary which never quite gels, despite a fine cast.

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarök
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Taika Waititi
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins

Thor (Hemsworth) reunites with his duplicitous brother Loki (Hiddleston) to battle Hela, Goddess of Death (Blanchett). Director Taika Waititi averts narrative pomposity in favour of charm, comedy and gargantuan spectacle, while Hemsworth sends himself up with skill and confidence. An askew, irreverent and wonderfully idiotic addition to the MCU.
