Another Mother's Son

Another Mother's Son
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 103 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Menaul
  • Cast: Jenny Seagrove, Julian Kostov, Ronan Keating, John Hannah, Amanda Abbington

Louisa Gold (Seagrove) is a widowed Jersey shopkeeper with two sons fighting in WW2 when the Channel Islands are occupied by the Germans; she takes in an escaped Russian POW (Kostov). The look and atmosphere of 40s Jersey is well caught, but the story is predictable and it feels like a tame TV drama.

Churchill

Churchill
  • 2017
  • 105 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jonathan Teplitzky
  • Written by: Alex von Tunzelmann
  • Cast: Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery

The story of how Churchill (Cox) was vehemently opposed to the Normandy landings of 1944. Intelligent, sometimes moving drama with an exceptional cast (especially Purefoy as a touching George VI) but not notably cinematic, stringing together a series of confrontations with shots of Churchill being driven from one place to another.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul
  • 2017
  • US
  • 91 min
  • U
  • Directed by: David Bowers
  • Cast: Alicia Silverstone, Tom Everett Scott, Alexa Blair Robertson, Jason Drucker, Charlie Wright

Greg (Drucker) and Rodrick (Wright) go on a two-day road trip with their family in order to attend a birthday party. The fourth film in the sequence completely recasts the main characters (the previous ones having become too old) and despite likeable performances it’s only moderately amusing.

Hampstead

Hampstead
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 102 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joel Hopkins
  • Written by: Robert Festinger
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, James Norton, Brendan Gleeson

Emily (Keaton) is an American widow living in Hampstead who falls for the grumpy Donald (Gleeson), who lives in a shack on Hampstead Heath. Twee later-life rom-com with Ketaon in pure ditz mode; her and Gleeson’s chemistry is appealing, but there are no surprises.

Smurfs: The Lost Village

Smurfs: The Lost Village
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kelly Asbury
  • Written by: Stacey Harman/Pamela Ribon
  • Cast: Demi Lovato, Ariel Winter, Julia Roberts, Joe Manganiello

Smurfette (Lovato) and her friends go on a quest to help her find her place in the village, and the result is a series of chases, a few under-cooked girl-power nods and a lot of sappiness. Undemanding kids might have a good time; adults will have to grin and smurf it.

The Time Of Their Lives

The Time Of Their Lives
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 104 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Goldby
  • Written by: Roger Goldby
  • Cast: Joan Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero

Priscilla (P Collins) is a neglected housewife who finds herself on coach trip to France with some dotty pensioners, including forgotten film star Helen (J Collins). The Collinses make an engaging double act and it works best when it goes a little off the rails, but this amiable comedy occasionally feel unfinished.

Transformers 5: The Last Knight

Transformers 5: The Last Knight
  • 2017
  • US
  • 148 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Michael Bay
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins

It turns out that the Transformers shape human history, as Oxford lecturer Viviane (Haddock), butch inventor Cade (Wahlberg) and an English Earl (Hopkins) charge about from action sequence to action sequence. Wahlberg and Haddock have zero chemistry and it’s a deadening pile-up of CGI carnage, grating quips and joyless pummelling.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 133 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Patty Jenkins
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright

Diana (Gadot) is a princess of the Amazons, who rescues WW1 pilot / secret agent interest Steve (Pine) and resolves to end the war. Stylish and exciting, with a top cast, touches of real humour and tragedy, and spiffing action sequences, anchored by a strong and highly likeable performance from Gadot.
