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

  • 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.

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.

  • Directed by: Bennett Miller
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo

Mark Schultz (Tatum) is a gold-medal-winning Olympic wrestler who exists in the shadow of his more successful older brother Dave (Ruffalo); then eccentric billionaire John du Pont (Carell) offers to become Mark's sponsor. Based on a true story, it's an ominous study of psychological torment, with career-best performances from Tatum and the compellingly creepy Carell.

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

The Penguins of Madagascar

The Penguins of Madagascar
  • 2014
  • US
  • 92 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Darnell, Simon J. Smith
  • Cast: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, John DiMaggio, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, Peter Stormare

The espionage-savvy penguins team up with an interspecies special forces group, to tangle with octopus/scientist Dr Octavius Brine (Malkovich). The knockabout style offers few chances for genuine drama and the result is a lighthearted, frenetic but rather unimaginative romp, a step down from the psychedelic wit of Europe's Most Wanted.

  • UK
  • U
  • Directed by: Mark Burton, Richard Starzack
  • Cast: Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes

When the Farmer gets lost in the Big City, Shaun (Fletcher) and his friends leave Mossy Bottom Farm to rescue him. With a steady stream of hilarious, well-timed sight gags, it's a beautifully made comedy for the whole family, packed with the kind of detail that rewards future viewings.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
  • 2015

  • 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: Michelle Williams, Kristin Scott Thomas, Matthias Schoenaerts

Lucile Angellier (Williams) is married and lives in a village in occupied France in the 1940s; when handsome young German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts) arrives, romance blossoms. Adapted from Irène Némirovsky's novellas, it suffers from wayward pacing but Williams is as honest and affecting as ever. Pack a hanky.

Woman in Gold

Woman in Gold
  • 2015
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Simon Curtis
  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Andrew Garfield, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl

Maria (Mirren), an Austrian woman who escaped her homeland before WW II, teams up with lawyer Randol (Reynolds) in a fight to retrieve paintings stolen by the Nazis. Mirren and Reynolds have pleasing chemistry but Curtis fails to give this true story a clear direction or emotional impact.

Muswell Hill's handsome Odeon dates from 1936, and is a grade II listed building; its interior is the most elaborate of any original Odeon cinema to survive. It was subdivided into three screens as long ago as 1974, with the result that in the main auditorium the seats are all in the balcony.

The two smaller screens, 2 & 3, have wheelchair spaces but screen 1 has no disabled access. There are disabled toilets and parking spaces, but no hearing loops. The cinema has its own car park at the rear of the building.

The cinema is served by bus stops for the 102, 234, 603 routes, with the 43 and 134 around the corner on Muswell Hill Road. The nearest Tubes are East Finchley, a little over a mile to the west (follow Fortis Green), or Highgate to the south, down Muswell Hill Road.
