Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto

Blade Runner K (Gosling) is tasked with finding replicants who are passing themselves off as human, but then he makes an earth-shattering, game-changing discovery. Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel to Scott’s original is beautiful, powerful and relevant; Gosling is exceptional, and Ford steals the show as the ageing but still gruff and quick-witted Deckard. A triumph.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Soren
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Ed Helms

Animated superhero comedy based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey. This is a film that sides with the kids, right down to its sly jabs at uncaring, cash-starved school systems and loose message about the value of laughing at yourself; and, of course, at the mere existence of a planet called Uranus.

Cars 3

Cars 3
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • U
  • Directed by: Brian Fee
  • Cast: Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Owen Wilson, Kerry Washington

Lightning (Wilson) is challenged by new car on the block, Jackson Storm (Hammer). The least interesting Pixar franchise rumbles on in a rudimentary cash-grab which is basically a training montage in search of a story, and Randy Newman’s score can’t save it from being a dull lunge for the finish line.

Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me 3
  • 2017

  • 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.

Goodbye Christopher Robin

Goodbye Christopher Robin
  • 2017
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Simon Curtis
  • Written by: Frank Cottrell Boyce, Simon Vaughan
  • Cast: Margot Robbie, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Macdonald

The story of ex-Army officer-turned-writer AA Milne (Gleeson), and how he turned to children’s literature after the public showed little desire to read his anti-war writings. Curtis handles the awkward but loving father-son relationship beautifully and it’s a competent and credible work, with subtle and intelligent use of animation.

  • 15
  • Directed by: Andrés Muschietti
  • Cast: Jaeden Lieberher, Bill Skarsgård, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer

A group of kids discovers that their town is haunted by an evil shape-shifting clown (Skarsgård). Well-crafted and properly creepy, with a sinister turn from Skarsgård as the dribbling Pennywise and Lillis superb as the gang’s only female member, it lays down solid groundwork for the planned second instalment.

The Jungle Bunch

  • Directed by: David Alaux
  • Cast: Paul Borne, Philippe Bozo, Pascal Casanova

Maurice (Bozo) is a penguin who’s been raised by Natacha, a tigress (Darah). He leads his own team of crime-fighting creatures against evil koala Igor (Darbois) and his baboons. Lush animation and a brisk, unpretentious story make for a cheap but cheerful rumble in the jungle for pre-teens.

  • UK
  • 2h 21min

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Hany Abu-Assad
  • Cast: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Beau Bridges

Alex (Winslet), a photojournalist, and Ben (Elba), a surgeon, are flying to Denver in a charter plane when their pilot suffers a midair stroke and their plane comes down. Despite thrilling real-life backdrops, Winslet and Elba's lack of chemistry hobbles the not very credible romance that develops between them, and you feel more attached to the dead pilot’s dog.

  • 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.

  • 2017
  • Canada/US/South Korea
  • 1h 31min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Cal Brunker
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph

In this inexplicable sequel to the underwhelming 2014 original, Surly Squirrel (Arnett) teams up with idealistic Andie (Heigl) and Precious (Rudolph) to save their park from the Mayor (Moynihan). The characters are unappealing and the script relies on uninspired action and flat non-jokes. At least there’s no ‘Gangnam Style’ this time.

A group of male thirtysomethings go for a hiking holiday in Sweden in memory of a dead friend, but there’s a Malign Presence in the woods. There’s plenty of atmosphere, style and sturdy characterisation but not enough fresh scares or potent revelations, and we’ve been lost in trees like these too often before.
