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.

Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker
  • 2017
  • US
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan

No surprises here: Anastasia (Johnson) gets sweet-talked back into the red room by Christian (Dornan). Foley seems to be under orders to skip the actual sex, as the real money shots are of Christian’s wardrobe. Johnson manages to be likeable and human, but otherwise it’s high on production values and short on story.

The Great Wall

The Great Wall
  • 2017
  • China / US
  • 103 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zhang Yimou
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe

Two tough, rascally fighting men (Damon and Pascal, who was Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones) travel to China, get captured, are beguiled by a warrior princess (Jing) and besieged by beasties. Director Zhang is going for full-on blockbuster: plot and character are less important than spectacular action, Damon is likeable, and it's all spiffing hooey.

  • Directed by: Hannes Michael Schalle
  • Written by: Alistair Audsley, Hannes Michael Schalle

Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge
  • 2016
  • US
  • 139 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mel Gibson
  • Cast: Andrew Garfield, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn

Desmond Doss (Garfield) is a Seventh Day Adventist who enrols in the US Army in WWII and then refuses even to pick up a rifle, let alone shoot one. Doss’s real-life bravery and Garfield’s awkward-everyman persona make this rise above Gibson’s rather clichéd reverence, and the battle sequences are superbly realised.

Hidden Figures
  • 2016
  • US
  • 127 min
  • PG
  • 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 the program's first successful space missions, despite institutionalised segregation in the workplace. The leads are wonderful and it’s an inspiring story about collective triumph.

John Wick: Chapter 2

John Wick 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 122 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Chad Stahelski
  • Cast: Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose

John Wick (Reeves) is back, dealing with the global assassins’ network and handing out ass-kickings to all that stand in his way. The original was lean and focused but this stretches over two hours, and the guy was tired of this life prior to part one; maybe it’s time to give him a break.

Kubo and the Two Strings

Kubo and the Two Strings
  • 2016
  • US
  • 102 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Travis Knight
  • Cast: Art Parkinson, Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, Brenda Vaccaro, George Takei

One-eyed origami expert Kubo (Parkinson) joins forces with no-nonsense Monkey (Theron) and goofy human/insect warrior Beetle (McConaughey) on a quest to defeat the Moon King (Fiennes). Breathtakingly beautiful stop-motion animation, maybe too scary for young kids, but with plenty of humour, fine voice performances and a story full of heart.

La La Land
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

The Lego Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris McKay
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes

Batman (Arnett) is such a self-absorbed loner that even the Joker (Galifianakis) is peeved that Bats won’t recognise him as his greatest enemy, so the villain constructs a dastardly plot that incorporates every villain he can find, including the Daleks. Packed with gags and inventiveness, it’s tremendous fun.

  • 2015

  • PG
  • Directed by: Garth Davis
  • Written by: Saroo Brierley, Luke Davies
  • Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman

The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 135 min

  • Directed by: Kenneth Lonergan
  • Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol

Lee (Affleck) is a carefree small-town guy who, when his brother dies, is given the job of raising his nephew (Hedges). A masterful blend of high drama, quirky characterisations and incidental detail, with a soulful, heartbreaking turn by Affleck at its core.

Moana

Moana
  • 2016
  • US
  • 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.

  • Directed by: Garth Jennings
  • Written by: Garth Jennings
  • Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Tori Kelly, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Scarlett Johansson

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: Britt Robertson, Asa Butterfield, Gary Oldman, Janet Montgomery

Gardner (Butterfield) has lived his life on Mars, but aged 16 he visits Earth and does a runner with tearaway teen Tulsa (Robertson), pursued by the retired head of the Mars colony (Oldman). Only hormonally unbalanced teens could find anything to love in this lazy teen romance; Oldman needs to have a serious chat with his agent.

Kevin (McAvoy) suffers from dissociative identity disorder; when he kidnaps three teenage girls, best pals Marcia (Sula) and Claire (Richardson) and troubled loner Casey (Taylor-Joy), multi-personality strangeness ensues. With superb work from McAvoy and Taylor-Joy, this is easily Shyamalan's most compelling and intelligent movie in years.

  • UK

  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, James Cosmo, Shirley Henderson, Irvine Welsh

Renton (McGregor) returns to Edinburgh from Amsterdam, two decades on. Hodge's blood-pumping script builds on the original with characters that are older, sadder and definitely not wiser, and resentment and guilt festering like an open sore; but is it Archie-Gemmill-scoring-against Holland good? Yes, it is.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 92 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Mike Mitchell
  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, Gwen Stefani

Trolls are cute creatures who love EDM and warm hugs, but they're preyed on by Bergens, toothy monsters who think eating Trolls will bring happiness. Hyperactive buddy movie with dazzling visuals and lots of ditzy fun, but not as fresh or original as some of the competition.
