Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
  • 2015
  • US
  • 86 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Walt Becker
  • Written by: Ross Bagdasarian, Janice Karman, Randi Mayem Singer
  • Cast: Jason Lee, Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Bella Thorne, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Tony Hale

The three squeaky-voiced vermin hit the road on a mission to stop their owner Dave (Lee) from proposing. A passing reference to John Waters' 1972 cult classic Pink Flamingos, which features an infamous excrement-eating scene, highlights the extent to which this film serves pretty much the same substance to the viewer.

Bastille Day

Bastille Day
  • 2016
  • Directed by: James Watkins
  • Written by: Andrew Baldwin
  • Cast: Idris Elba, Richard Madden, Kelly Reilly

Sean Briar (Elba) is a tough CIA agent who uncovers a bomb plot in Paris. Frenetic thriller which comes across like Elba's audition for 007; the France terror attacks of November 2015 make it seem ill-timed but it's fast, furious and (sometimes unintentionally) funny.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
  • 2016
  • US
  • 151 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg

Superman (Cavill) faces off against Batman (Affleck) in the aftermath of the near-destruction of Metropolis at the end of Man of Steel. Despite a pretty strong screenplay, the two leads are no more than functional and Wonder Woman (Gadot) is a damp squib. But if the film lacks Marvel's sense of fun, in its fidgety and fearful way it feels entirely relevant.

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.

The Danish Girl

The Danish Girl
  • 2016
  • US
  • 119 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Tom Hooper
  • Written by: David Ebershoff, Lucinda Coxon
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Amber Heard, Alicia Vikander

Copenhagen painter Einar Wegener (Redmayne) has a loving marriage with fellow artist Gerda (Vikander), who encourages him to don women's clothes, prompting his realisation that he wants to become a woman. Touching and dignified real-life tale of 1930s transgender pioneer Lili Elbe, although at times it suffers from its own sumptuous respectability.

Eddie the Eagle

Eddie the Eagle
  • 2016
  • UK/US/Germany
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken

Eddie Edwards (Egerton) is determined to be a ski jumper, but his only hope lies through boozy, washed-up former star Bronson (Jackman). Feelgood dramedy more 'inspired by' than 'based on' the real-life story of a plucky loser, with Egerton delightfully innocent as the hapless Eddie, and some thrilling ski jumping scenes.

Friend Request

Friend Request
  • 2016
  • US
  • 92 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Simon Verhoeven
  • Cast: Alycia Debnam-Carey, Liesl Ahlers, William Moseley, Connor Paolo

Popular student Laura (Debnam-Carey) befriends class weirdo Marina (Ahlers) who has no Facebook friends at all. Things go downhill from there. Horribly misguided attempt at a horror flick about social media with unintentional LOLs aplenty; some creepy effects aside, it's stale and unoriginal and the character of Marina is flimsy to the point of offensive.

Goosebumps

Goosebumps
  • 2015
  • US
  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Letterman
  • Written by: Darren Lemke, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, R Stine
  • Cast: Jack Black, Amy Ryan, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush,

Teenager Zach (Minnette) develops a crush on his home-schooled neighbour Hannah (Rush), whose mysterious father (Black) keeps her locked up. This greatest-hits adaptation of RL Stine's horror stories unleashing a host of fan-favourite monsters instead of focusing on just one; it's pacey and enjoyable with Black on fine comic form, and the teen trio are likeable.

Joy

Joy
  • 2015
  • US
  • 124 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David O Russell
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro

Joy Mangano (Lawrence) is a young mother coping with her dysfunctional family; the story traces her invention and development of the Miracle Mop. Russell's screwball drama never really finds its tone and although Lawrence is probably too young, she plays Joy with gusto; only now and again does it rise to the heights of Russell's earlier work.

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.

Robinson Crusoe

  • 2016
  • 90 min
  • Directed by: Vincent Kesteloot/Ben Stassen
  • Cast: Ron Allen, George Babbit, Laila Berzins

In this forgettable animation, Robinson Crusoe (Lowenthal) lives on a desert island where his enemies are…two evil cats. A lacklustre script and dull storytelling make this one not worth taking the family to.

  • Directed by: Byron Howard/Rich Moore/Jared Bush
  • Written by: Jared Bush, Phil Johnston
  • Cast: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba

Trailblazing rabbit Judy (Goodwin) goes to the city to join the police, and teams up with con artist fox Nick (Bateman) on the trail of a missing otter. Cheerfully feminist but never preachy, with gorgeous animation and a classy cast, it's a model piece of family entertainment.
