Ballerina

Ballerina
  • 2016
  • France / Canada
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Summer / Éric Warin
  • Cast: Voices of Dane DeHaan, Elle Fanning, Maddie Ziegler

Orphaned Félicie (Fanning) strives to reach her dream of performing ballet at the Grand Opera House, with the help of mentor Odette (Jepsen). A ballet version of The Karate Kid, it looks nice but the soundtrack is a mish-mash and the story is formulaic and lacks comic zing.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

The Belko Experiment

The Belko Experiment
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 89 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Greg McLean
  • Written by: James Gunn
  • Cast: John Gallagher Jr., Tony Goldwyn, Adria Arjona

One day, the employees of Belko Corp arrive at their Bogotá HQ to find the local staff being turned away; then steel shutters lock them in and they’re forced to battle to the death. A brutal little belter of a trap movie, with plenty of splatter and satire. Horror fans won’t regret it.

The Boss Baby
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tom McGrath
  • Written by: Marla Frazee/Michael McCullers
  • Cast: Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi

The Boss Baby (Baldwin) is a tot with the mannerisms of a ruthless corporate tycoon, who upsets seven-year-old Tim (Bakshi). The frantic visual style and crude slapstick overwrite the charm of the original story by Marla Frazee, and there’s not much for audiences to take to their hearts.

Collateral Beauty
  • 2016
  • US
  • 97 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Frankel
  • Cast: Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren

Ad-man Howard (Smith) is numbed with grief from the loss of his child, and his business partners plot to undermine him, but it turns out they have their own personal problems blah blah blah. The best that can be said for this torturously schmaltzy Christmas Carol rip-off is that it's shorter than other bad Will Smith films.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • 133 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston

Newt Scamander (Redmayne), a socially-challenged animal whisperer of sorts, has to gather up the fantastic beasts which have escaped from his briefcase and are roaming 1920s New York. A suitably magical spin-off, with Rowling's screenplay skilfully balancing dark and light, and director Yates maintaining a thrilling pace and exciting spectacle.

  • Directed by: F. Gary Gray
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren

Cyber-terrorist Cypher (Theron) pits rogue racer Dom (Diesel) against his fellow petrolheads, including wife Letty (Rodriguez). Baffling and inconsequential story aside, it’s all shamelessly about car-based action, and although human doorstop Diesel isn’t up to the story’s limited emotional demands, Johnson and Statham make up for it with some grade-A squabbling.

  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Written by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford

Chris (Kaluuya) heads to upstate New York with his girlfriend Rose (Williams), for a dinner with her supposedly liberal parents (Whitford and Keener), only to find that things are very much other than they seem. Peele’s deep understanding of horror movies tropes combines with his own experiences as a black American, to make a sharp, taut and precisely crafted reflection on racial tensions in America.

  • 107 min

  • Directed by: Rupert Sanders
  • Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Michael Pitt, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche

Major (Johansson) is a human brain harvested from a body that cannot be saved, and placed in a cyborg shell to be an asset to elite crime busters Section 9. Barnstorming action, incredible production design, a nicely diverse cast with Johansson spectacularly measuring up to the role’s physical and emotional demands, and a killer geisha robot: what’s not to like?

  • Directed by: Zach Braff
  • Cast: Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Alan Arkin

A slick, amiable if somewhat safe cover version of an unjustly neglected 1979 comedy, this time starring Oscar-winners Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin as poverty-stricken old-timers who decide to take their revenge on a banking system.

  • Written by: James Gunn
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Kurt Russell

The gang are back, with a rollicking plot involving stolen batteries and Ego (Russell) who may or may not be the long-lost dad of Peter Quill (Pratt). It’s very CGI-heavy, sometimes tiringly so, but the humour still charms and the finale picks it up after a sluggish second act.

The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden
  • 2016
  • Korea
  • 144 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Park Chan-Wook
  • Cast: Kim Tae-Ri, Kim Min-Hee, Ha Jung-Woo, Jo Jin-Woong

Thief Sook-Hee (Tae-ri) is hired to pose as a maid to wealthy heiress Hideko (Min-hee) as part of a con trick, but then maid and heiress discover mutual passion. This loose adaptation of Sarah Waters's Fingersmith is bravura filmmaking, but while the emotion between the two women is vibrant, an extended sex scene is exploitative, and the plot is too convoluted.

Hidden Figures
  • 2016

  • Directed by: Theodore Melfi
  • Cast: Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe

The true story of the African-American women who provided NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch its first successful space missions, despite institutionalised segregation in the workplace. The leads are wonderful and it’s an inspiring story about collective triumph.

  • Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, John C. Reilly

In 1973 a team of scientists goes to explore a recently discovered island with its own ecosystem, which turns out to include a 100-foot-tall ape which can punch helicopters out of the sky. Kong himself is impressive, if his fellow beasts are less so, and a great cast and able direction make this a monstrously entertaining actioner.

  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant

Grey-haired, boozy and ailing, Logan (Jackman) is caring for the now elderly Charles Xavier (Stewart) when he encounters a young mutant girl, Laura (Keen). A glorious swansong for Wolverine; the world-weary tone, low-key setting and ballsy climax really impress. First class.

  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing lack of a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

The Promise
  • 2016
  • Spain/US

  • Directed by: Terry George
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, Shohreh Aghdashloo

Mikael (Isaac) is a poor Armenian medical student in Constantinople in 1914, who falls in love with the vivacious Ana (Le Bon), except that she’s already carrying on with the dashing American journalist Chris (Bale). Epic, handsomely cast but overcooked historical romance set against the backdrop of the Turkish genocide of Armenians.

  • 2016

  • Directed by: Warren Beatty
  • Cast: Lily Collins, Alden Ehrenreich, Annette Bening, Howard Hughes

Naive beauty contest winner Marla (Collins) arrives in Hollywood in 1958 with her rightly suspicious mother (Bening) and a personal driver, Frank (Ehrenreich), but both are employed by Howard Hughes (Beatty). Odd, fitfully disquieting tragicomedy, entertaining but uncertain in tone.

  • 2017

  • Cast: Jim Broadbent, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer

Tony Webster (Broadbent) is a grumpy old git who’s on good terms with his ex wife (Walter); when he’s bequeathed the diary of an old friend, he is prompted to relive his schooldays. This adaptation of a Julian Barnes novel feels hokey and safe, although it has a nice cast and the scenes between Broadbent and Walter are among the few highlights.

Koala impresario Buster Moon (McConaughey) decides to save his ailing theatre with a singing competition. Most of the humour comes from cute critters singing occasionally inappropriate songs; the plot is spread far too thin and there no real surprises, but it ticks the usual boxes.

  • Cast: Demi Lovato, Ariel Winter, Julia Roberts, Joe Manganiello

Smurfette (Lovato) and her friends go on a quest to help her find her place in the village, and the result is a series of chases, a few under-cooked girl-power nods and a lot of sappiness. Undemanding kids might have a good time; adults will have to grin and smurf it.

  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy

London, 1940: fledgling screenwriter Catrin Cole (Arterton) joins the Ministry of Information’s Film Division and starts working on a propaganda movie. Scherfig wraps the war in a cosy cloak of nostalgia in a way that dulls moments of high anxiety, and despite a fine ensemble it’s all too muffled and mild-mannered.

The true story of Antonina Jabinski (Chastain) and her husband Jan (Heldenbergh), who ran the Warsaw Zoo in the 1930s and who used it to shelter Jews from the Nazis during WW2. Director Caro steers the story robustly if predictably, and it’s a solid and worthy story if nothing spectacular.
