Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass
  • 2016
  • US
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Mia Wasikowsksa, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen

Alice (Wasikowska) has to travel back in time to help the Mad Hatter (Depp), to the annoyance of Time (Baron Cohen). Nimble blockbuster with a good blend of mirth and melancholy, and director Bobin never lets the CGI swamp the story in the way Burton did in the first film.

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.

  • Written by: Jon Vitti
  • Cast: Peter Dinklage, Kate McKinnon, Jason Sudeikis

Red (Sudeikis), a notably angry bird, joins an anger management class and makes some friends, but then green pigs arrive in the neighbourhood. Amusing if delayed adaptation of the smartphone game, with plenty of gags and puns for accompanying adults.

When college student Shelby (Moretz) forms a new sorority so that she and her friends can have as much fun as the guys, it annoys their neighbours the Radners (Byrne and Rogen). A fun, feminist sequel with manic energy, an empowering message and a cast gifted with spot-on timing; Moretz especially is having a great time.

  • US
  • 130 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam McKay
  • Written by: Michael Lewis, Adam McKay, Charles Randolph
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Karen Gillan, Brad Pitt

In the middle of the biggest property boom in American history, a group of financial experts bets that it's all about to collapse. A righteous, angry call to arms dolled up with satirical absurdity, irony, montage, knowing cinematic and pop culture references, snappy dialogue and smoking hot performances from an astonishing cast.

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.

Dad's Army

Dad's Army
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 60 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Oliver Parker
  • Written by: David Croft, Hamish McColl, Jimmy Perry
  • Cast: Toby Jones, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, Bill Paterson, Blake Harrison, Tom Courtenay, Daniel Mays, Catherine Zeta-Jones

The Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea find a German spy in their midst – don't panic, indeed. Faithful but strangely pointless recreation of the classic sitcom, in which fine actors like Jones, Nighy, Gambon etc only succeed in being inferior imitations of the originals. Like the characters themselves, brave but ultimately foolhardy.

Everybody Wants Some!!

Everybody Wants Some!!
  • 2016
  • US
  • 116 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Richard Linklater
  • Cast: Zoey Deutch, Austin Amelio, Tyler Hoechlin

In 1980 a group of baseball-playing freshmen arrive at a Texas college a weekend before term starts, determined to party, chase girls and shoot the breeze. A low-budget 'spiritual sequel' to 1993's Dazed and Confused, it scores by its authenticity, focus on character and storytelling, and splendid soundtrack. A frat boy film, but a magical one.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 110 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg

Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing. Streep throws herself endearingly into the role, Grant is wonderful as her debonair husband and Frears keeps a confident balance of uproarious laughs and genuine pathos.

Goosebumps
  • 2015
  • US

  • 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.

  • UK/France/German/US
  • 98 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Tom Tykwer
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Side Babette Knudsen, Ben Whishaw, Sarita Choudhury

Alan Clay (Hanks) is a washed-up American businessman trying to set up an IT deal with the Saudi King. Based on Dave Eggers's 2012 novel; although the female roles are underwritten, Hanks is on song as the central character in a quirky adult maturation story told with real panache and atmosphere.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book
  • 2016

  • 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.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Alessandro Carloni
  • Cast: Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan, David Cross, James Hong, Randall Duk Kim, Rebel Wilson, Bryan Cranston, JK Simmons

When Master Shifu (Hoffman) retires, Po (Black) is nonplussed to be promoted to teacher-trainer; then demon water buffalo Kai (Simmons) starts raising a zombie army and Po is reunited with his dad (Cranston)! Black is as lovable as ever, and with the excellent cast, frantic action, sight gags, cute baby pandas and stunning effects, it's a pity the script is a bit humdrum.

Money Monster

Money Monster
  • 2015
  • US
  • 99 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jodie Foster
  • Cast: Jack O'Connell, Julia Roberts, George Clooney

Lee Gates (Clooney) is a motormouth host of a financial advice show, directed by Patty (Roberts); then desperate Kyle (O'Connell) hijacks the show and forces Lee to wear a bomb vest. Earnest and moderately entertaining hostage thriller, but despite good performances and snappy editing it comes close to being The Big Short for Dummies.

Middle-class couple Perry (McGregor) and Gail (Harris) are dining in a Marrakech restaurant when a wealthy Russian criminal (Skarsgård) invites himself into their lives. despite all the cover-ups and conspiracies, it works best as a study of Perry and Gail's frayed relationship. Solid rather than spectacular.

  • Directed by: Duncan Jones
  • Cast: Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, Ben Schnetzer, Ruth Negga, Anna Galvin, Clancy Brown

Ordinarily we wouldn't expect much of a film adapted from a video game but this is directed by Duncan 'Moon' Jones. Whether the drama is strong enough to outweigh the abundant CGI remains to be seen.

X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse
  • 2016
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Written by: Michael Dougherty, Dan Harris, Simon Kinberg, Bryan Singer

Waking from a ten-year slumber, Apocalypse (Isaac) enlists Erik/Magneto (Fassbender) in his evil plans. Plenty of superficial excitement but a distinct lack of narrative ambition; with an extraordinary ensemble wasted in a franchise that's run dry of ideas.
