Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • 2015
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joss Whedon
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Samuel L. Jackson

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much emotional impact.

Birdman

Birdman
  • 2014
  • US
  • 119 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alejandro González Iñárritu
  • Cast: Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan

Riggan Thompson (Keaton) played Birdman, a popular Hollywood superhero, but that was a while ago and he's having trouble getting the second art of his career started. A stellar cast (Norton, Watts, Stone) and fluid script prop up an award-worthy turn from Keaton, all mesmerisingly photographed by Lubezki. Highly imaginative.

Child 44

Child 44
  • 2015
  • 15
  • Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
  • Written by: Richard Price/Tom Rob Smith
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman

Leo (Hardy) is a military policeman in the Stalin-era Soviet Union, tasked with investigating a series of child killings that are unacknowledged by the state. Hardy and Rapace lead an excellent cast, and although it packs in a little too much it's a pleasingly pulpy thriller.

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.

Far from the Madding Crowd

Far from the Madding Crowd
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Thomas Vinterberg
  • Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen

Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) is a headstrong rural girl who inherits a farm and attracts the attention of three suitors; lowly Gabriel (Schoenaerts), well-to-do Boldwood (Sheen) and unscrupulous Troy (Sturridge). A straight-up take on Hardy's classic; Mulligan is a convincing Bathsheba and Vinterberg captures the brewing tragedy magnificently.

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.

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.

  • 2015
  • US
  • U
  • Directed by: Tim Johnson
  • Cast: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

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 grating experience, thanks to a confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice.

A Little Chaos

A Little Chaos
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Alan Rickman
  • Cast: Kate Winslet, Helen McCrory, Stanley Tucci

Sabine (Winslet), a widowed landscape gardener in 1682 Paris, is commissioned to work on the gardens of Versailles, but her friendship with the head gardener (Schoenaerts) provokes the fury of his scheming wife (McCrory). Crowd-pleasing period drama; what it lacks in historical accuracy it makes up for with fine performances, an engaging story and strong direction from Rickman.

The Theory of Everything

The Theory of Everything
  • 2014
  • US/UK
  • 123 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Tom Prior

Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Wilde (Jones) lock eyes at a university party, but their budding love affair is given a blow by his diagnosis of motor neurone disease. Redmayne is astonishingly good and Jones inspires sympathy and admiration, but the script is never really convincing.
