Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6
  • 2014
  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Williams, Don Hall
  • Cast: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Génesis Rodríguez, T. J. Miller, Daniel Henney, Maya Rudolph

Hiro (Potter) is a 14 year old robotics genius who, after a family tragedy, teams up with inflatable robot Baymax (Adsit) to become crimefighting superheroes. This Disney adaptation of a Marvel comic deals with dark themes of loss and grief but also has plenty of heart and some big laughs, especially from Adsit.

Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • U
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

Insurgent

Insurgent
  • 2015
  • US
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Robert Schwentke
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller

Tris (Woodley), Four (James) and the remnants of the Dauntless race tirelessly hither and thither in part 2 of the Divergent series. Woodley does very well with what she's given, but the other parts are underwritten and it all feels like a build-up to the extended finale of this bewildering and hardly essential franchise.

Fast & Furious 7

Furious 7
  • 2015
  • US
  • 140 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Wan
  • Written by: Chris Morgan
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Lucas Black, Jason Statham

Deckard (Statham) is a Special Forces assassin determined to get revenge on the team after his brother has been left in a coma. With the shark rapidly receding in the wake of the franchise's waterskis, the latest instalment is insane but has a puppyish desperation to please, and doesn't take itself too seriously.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey
  • 2015
  • US
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle

Despite its troubling gender politics and distinct lack of plot, the likeable Johnson brings nuance and charm to a paper-thin character; Dornan manages to offer a hint of humanity; and given the many constraints, this sleek, fairly trim and occasionally sensual adaptation is the best imaginable outcome.

Focus
  • 2015
  • US
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Glenn Ficarra/John Requa
  • Cast: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Rodrigo Santoro

Nicky (Smith) is a lifelong con man who takes wannabe swindler Jess (Robbie) under his wing, only to fall for her; dull romantic twists and not-very-ingenious stings ensue. The two stars have almost no chemistry and the film's greatest scam is that it fools you into thinking it's going to amount to more than it does.

Get Hard

Get Hard
  • 2014
  • US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Etan Cohen
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie

Hedge fund exec James (Ferrell) is to be sent to prison for fraud, so he persuades law-abiding car wash owner Darnell (Hart) to teach him how to survive in prison, on the grounds that Darnell is black. If you can stand lots of jokes about prison rape, it's occasionally brilliant, if somewhat uneven.

Globe On Screen: Titus Andronicus

Globe On Screen: Titus Andronicus
  • 2015
  • 185 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Lucy Bailey
  • Written by: William Shakespeare
  • Cast: William Houston, Indira Varma, Obi Abili

Shakespeare’s Roman-clad gore fest Titus Andronicus returns to Shakespeare’s Globe for those of us who are lovers of bloody violence done up in elegant prose.

Returning to Rome from a war against the Goths, the general Titus Andronicus brings with him the queen Tamora and her three sons as prisoners of war. Titus' sacrifice of Tamora's eldest son to appease the ghosts of his 21 dead sons, and his decision to refuse to accept the title of emperor, initiates a terrible cycle of mutilation, rape and murder, At the centre of the nightmare moves the self-delighting Aaron.

Spectacularly, even grotesquely violent and daringly experimental, Titus was the smash hit of Shakepeare's early career, and is written with a ghoulish energy he was never to repeat elsewhere.

This new production may not be one for the kids, but is an enthralling and wonderfully ghastly rendition of one of Shakespeare’s less-known, yet timeless historical plays." ★★★★ – Mark Sempill *The Upcoming

The Gunman

The Gunman
  • 2015
  • Spain/UK/France
  • 115 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Pierre Morel
  • Cast: Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Jasmine Trinca, Javier Bardem

Jim Terrier (Penn) is a hired assassin who undertakes a political hit; years later he becomes a target, and must find who wants him dead. Risible thriller with a clichéd script that wastes good actors (Bardem, Rylance, Penn himself) in a clumsy attempt to reinvent its star and producer as an action hero.

Oh (Parsons) is part of an alien race who've colonised Earth by decanting humans to amusement parks in Australia, but he's forced to team up with lost little girl Tip (Rihanna). A confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice make for a grating experience.

  • 2014
  • US
  • PG
  • Directed by: Shawn Levy
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Dan Stevens, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Owen Wilson

Former museum nightwatchman Larry (Stiller), now a manager at New York's Museum of Natural History, goes to London to rekindle a magical object. Stiller looks bored, and despite some refreshing cameos and the last, shining glimpse of Williams, it's so laboured and lousy it makes you want to punch yourself in the face.

  • 2015
  • US

  • Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
  • Written by: Brad Ingelsby
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Genesis Rodriguez, Joel Kinnaman

Jimmy (Neeson), a lonely alcoholic and associate of gangster Shawn Maguire (Harris), is broken by regret for his sins, but when Maguire puts out a hit on Jimmy's son Michael (Kinnaman), we know what'll happen: Liam Kicks Ass. Solid, watchable actioner with fine work from Neeson and Kinnaman; no classic but satisfactory.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 122 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Madden
  • Cast: Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Judi Dench

This sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (yes, you may have guessed) has an ensemble cast, and follows the expansionist dreams of Sonny. He has his eye on a second property, but there are still predicaments to resolve in his first.

The Seventh Son

The Seventh Son
  • 2013
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: Sergey Bodrov
  • Cast: Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges

Tom Ward (Barnes), the seventh son of a seventh son, becomes apprentice to the last of the 'spooks', Master Gregory (Bridges), with the aim of eradicating supernatural forces. Enjoyable hokum, with Moore wonderfully bitchy and Bridges unleashing Brian Blessed-like levels of ham. To be treasured by connoisseurs of truly bad film.

  • 1959

  • 120 min

  • Directed by: Billy Wilder
  • Cast: Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, George Raft, Joe E Brown, Pat O'Brien

Two impecunious male musicians inadvertently witness the St Valentine's Day Massacre and take refuge in Florida with Sweet Sue and her Society Syncopators, an all-female band. Brilliant, brittle, crackerjack farce with all concerned at a peak in their careers.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
  • 2015
  • US

  • Cast: Antonio Banderas, Clancy Brown, Tom Kenny

Life goes on at usual in Bikini Bottom until real-life pirate Burger-Beard (Banderas) causes apocalyptic mayhem; SpongeBob and arch-nemesis Plankton must team up to defeat him. Despite a lazy superhero plot twist in the final act, it has enough colourful characters and hilarious one-liners to keep both kids and adults entertained.

  • Cast: Jai Courtney, Olga Kurylenko, Russell Crowe

Connor (Crowe) is an embittered Australian farmer after WW I who, following the suicide of wife Eliza (McKenzie), goes to Turkey in the hope of finding the bodies of his dead sons. Crowe as director fashions a sombre, intelligent and surprisingly assured historical drama, with fine performances.
