Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass
  • 2016
  • US
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 92 min

  • Directed by: Nicholas Stoller
  • Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Seth Rogen

When college student Shelby (Moretz) forms a new sorority so that she and her friends can have as much fun as the guys, it annoys their neighbours the Radners (Byrne and Rogen). A fun, feminist sequel with manic energy, an empowering message and a cast gifted with spot-on timing; Moretz especially is having a great time.

  • US
  • 130 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam McKay
  • Written by: Michael Lewis, Adam McKay, Charles Randolph
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Karen Gillan, Brad Pitt

In the middle of the biggest property boom in American history, a group of financial experts bets that it's all about to collapse. A righteous, angry call to arms dolled up with satirical absurdity, irony, montage, knowing cinematic and pop culture references, snappy dialogue and smoking hot performances from an astonishing cast.

Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War
  • 2016
  • US
  • 147 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Written by: Christopher Markus , Stephen McFeely, Mark Millar (comic book)
  • Cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo, Daniel Brühl, William Hurt

When world leaders demand that the Avengers operate under UN supervision, the team splits. If you haven't seen previous instalments it will make no sense, but if you have, all the plot points bear bittersweet fruit, in a brilliant combination of hectic action and one liners with intimate, heartbreaking moments.

Dad's Army

Dad's Army
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 60 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Oliver Parker
  • Written by: David Croft, Hamish McColl, Jimmy Perry
  • Cast: Toby Jones, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, Bill Paterson, Blake Harrison, Tom Courtenay, Daniel Mays, Catherine Zeta-Jones

The Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea find a German spy in their midst – don't panic, indeed. Faithful but strangely pointless recreation of the classic sitcom, in which fine actors like Jones, Nighy, Gambon etc only succeed in being inferior imitations of the originals. Like the characters themselves, brave but ultimately foolhardy.

  • Directed by: Gavin Hood
  • Written by: Guy Hibbert
  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman

When a military operation to bring in a radicalised Englishwoman turns into a planned drone strike, commanding officer Katherine Powell (Mirren) and her colleagues have to juggle military necessity with saving civilian lives. Nerve-shredding and thought-provoking against-the-clock thriller which probes the moral grey areas of drone warfare.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 110 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg

Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing. Streep throws herself endearingly into the role, Grant is wonderful as her debonair husband and Frears keeps a confident balance of uproarious laughs and genuine pathos.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book
  • 2016
  • US
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: Justin Marks (screenplay), Rudyard Kipling
  • Cast: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Duncan Jones
  • Cast: Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, Ben Schnetzer, Ruth Negga, Anna Galvin, Clancy Brown

Ordinarily we wouldn't expect much of a film adapted from a video game but this is directed by Duncan 'Moon' Jones. Whether the drama is strong enough to outweigh the abundant CGI remains to be seen.

X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse
  • 2016
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Written by: Michael Dougherty, Dan Harris, Simon Kinberg, Bryan Singer

Waking from a ten-year slumber, Apocalypse (Isaac) enlists Erik/Magneto (Fassbender) in his evil plans. Plenty of superficial excitement but a distinct lack of narrative ambition; with an extraordinary ensemble wasted in a franchise that's run dry of ideas.
