Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me 3
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews, Jenny Slate, Pierre Coffin

Gru (Carell) and new wife and fellow agent Lucy (Wiig) are ensconced with their adorable adopted daughters when supervillain Balthazar Bratt (Parker) decides to take revenge on Hollywood for neglecting him. It’s all a bit familiar but it skilfully balances kid and adult appeal with its madcap approach and embarrassment of mischievous energy.

Geostorm

Geostorm
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Dean Devlin
  • Written by: Dean Devlin, Paul Guyot
  • Cast: Abbie Cornish, Gerard Butler, Mare Winningham

Satellite architect and space cowboy Jake (Butler) has designed a device to protect our planet from climate change, but it’s sabotaged. Ridiculous melodrama of cheesy CGI punctuated by cheesy soap opera histrionics, with untold millions dying in eco-catastrophes until the US saves the day. Windy nonsense.

Happy Death Day

Happy Death Day
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 36min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Christopher Landon
  • Cast: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine

Student Tree Gelbman (Rothe) is forced to relive the day of her grisly murder over and over again until she finds out who killed her. Rothe deftly switches between terror, exasperation, composure and mischief, in a surprisingly funny and effective horror comedy which is very aware that it’s Scream meets Groundhog Day.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 2h 21min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
  • Written by: Jane Goldman, Matthew Vaughn
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong

After the Kingsman HQ is destroyed, street kid-turned-superspy Eggsy (Egerton) and gadget man Merlin (Strong) team up with their US equivalents to defeat drug baroness Poppy (Moore). Vaughan and Goldman turn up the preposterous comic book shenanigans at the expense of charm and basic plausibility, but fans will like it.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

The LEGO Ninjago Movie
  • 2017
  • US / Denmark
  • 1h 41min
  • U
  • Directed by: Charlie Bean/Paul Fisher/Bob Logan
  • Cast: Dave Franco, Olivia Munn, Justin Theroux, Jackie Chan

Lloyd (Franco) is the son of evil Lord Garmadon (Theroux), who wants to conquer Ninjago; however, Lloyd is also one of the team of ninja dedicated to combatting Garmadon and his minions. Not the most inspired of the LEGO movies but bright, brash and amusing, with intricate action, lots of slapstick fun and a delightful sequence of a cat destroying a city.

My Little Pony: The Movie

My Little Pony: The Movie
  • 2017
  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jayson Thiessen
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber

The Friendship Festival of Canterlot is disrupted by ruthless unicorn Tempest Shadow (Blunt), so Twilight Sparkle (Strong) and pals must embark on a rescue mission. It manages to showcase the brand without sacrificing every last ounce of soul, and is cute, simple and surefooted enough for its target audience, if not for anyone else.

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 Waititi delivers gargantuan spectacle with plenty of verve and pricks narrative pomposity in favour of comedy, Hemsworth sending himself up with confident aplomb. An askew, irreverent and wonderfully idiotic addition to the MCU.

Tommy's Honour

Tommy's Honour
  • 2016
  • US/UK
  • 2h 22min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jason Connery
  • Cast: Peter Mullan, Jack Lowden, Ophelia Lovibond, Sam Neil

The story of two greats of 19th century golf, Tom Morris (Mullan) and his son Tommy (Lowden), their often stormy relationship, and Tommy's passion for local lass Meg (Lovibond). Unimaginative and superficial biopic, hampered by its low production values and shallow characterisation.
