  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia

Documentary on Amy Winehouse, charting her career from her early days to superstar status and subsequent fall. Kapadai creates an incredibly intimate look at the singer, with clips of her lighter side underlining the gravity of her loss. Punchy, provocative and just plain sad.

Ant-Man

Ant-Man
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peyton Reed
  • Cast: Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Hayley Atwell

A winning addition to Marvel's cinematic universe, Ant Man follows Dr Hank Pym (Douglas) as he fails in re-sizing himself, but unexpectedly imbues himself with the ability to talk to and control insects. With winning performances from Rudd, Cannavale and Douglas, this charming and eccentric heist film has a great sense of humour, though it's not all light-hearted. Father-daughter relationships add splendid emotional weight, while the film also addresses the female-fronted superhero film dilemma. Yes, there's mayhem, but it’s gilded with a sense of responsibility and mischief, all of which adds up to an utter delight.

Dear White People

Dear White People
  • 2014
  • US
  • 108 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Justin Simien
  • Cast: Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Kyle Gallner

This canny satire from Simien follows the lives of four black students at an Ivy League college. It presents a complex picture of racial politics and identity in the US, taking matters way beyond simple provocation, and is performed to perfection by its young, predominantly black cast. This film provides thoughtful, witty commentary on the dog-eat-dog world of ambitious hopefuls of any skin colour, and is executed with both class and character.

The Gallows

The Gallows
  • 2015
  • US
  • 81 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Travis Cluff/Chris Lofing
  • Cast: Reese Mishler, Pfeifer Brown, Ryan Shoos

This sometimes comically inept high school horror film kicks off in 1993, when Beatrice High School's performance of The Gallows goes horribly wrong, and a teenager is hanged in front of the audience. Fast-forward to the present day and the drama club have decided to re-stage the play as a kind of tribute. Cue 'scary' stuff happening. There are a few effective jump scares but they come minus the much-needed unsettling ambiance, or the flow to further the story. There's evidence of some technical talent from Lofing, but nowhere near enough to recommend a film that plays like a repeat performance of so many other found-footage horrors.

Hot Pursuit

Hot Pursuit
  • 2015
  • US
  • 87 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anne Fletcher
  • Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Sofía Vergara

Cooper (Witherspoon) is an ambitious and gung-ho Texan cop whose clumsiness has made her a laughing-stock; then she has to escort drug-dealer's-wife Daniella (Vergara) across the state. The two stars have appealing interplay and Vergara is very funny, but the script demands too much shrieking and squeaking and the action is underpowered.

  • 2015

  • Directed by: Pete Docter
  • Cast: Kaitlyn Dias, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith

Riley (Dias) is an 11 year old girl whose family is moving from Minnesota to San Francisco; her troubled mind is represented as a factory hub commanded by Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Sadness (Smith), Disgust (Kaling) and Anger (Black). Delightful, poignant and hysterically funny coming-of-age story from Pixar.

Jurassic World

  • Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson

Dino-geek Gray (Simpkins) visits Jurassic Park with brother Zach (Robinson); the park's manager, their aunt Claire (Howard), is less than attentive until a new creation runs amok and raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) steps in. Despite a merely functional screenplay, it has enough scares, scale, ideas and variety to keep everyone entertained.

  • Directed by: Greg Jacobs
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer

Mike (Tatum) takes a weekend away from his business to join his stripper buddies on a road trip to … a stripping convention. Winning blend of male bonding and female fantasy, with the men much more likable than most all-male comedy ensembles. As sweet and steamy as fresh cherry pie.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 91 min

  • Directed by: Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin
  • Written by: Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock

Prequel to the Despicable Me films, in which the pill-shaped, dungaree-sporting critters attach themselves to villain Scarlett Overkill (Bullock) and go to London to steal the Crown Jewels. The minions are as cute as ever but they seem funnier in support, and Bullock's character is one-dimensional.

Ethan (Cruise) and the gang are on the trail of the nefarious Syndicate when their unit is dissolved by the CIA. With jaw-dropping action, ingenious gadgets and a striking performance from Ferguson as the mysterious Ilsa, this is a a slick, accomplished and hugely entertaining slice of mayhem.

Spy

Susan (McCarthy) is a CIA office worker, the support to super-spy Bradley Fine (Law); when disaster strikes, Susan's withering boss Elaine (Janney) sends her into the field. Funny, exciting and genuinely ambitious spy spoof with an appealing performance from McCarthy, and Byrne exceptional as the arrogant villainess. Hugely likable.

Ted 2
  • 2015
  • US
  • 116 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Seth MacFarlane
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane, Jessica Barth

Though the novelty factor of the original has disappeared, the return of foul-mouthed teddybear Ted (voice of MacFarlane) and his best bro and thunder buddy John (Wahlberg) is a welcome one. This shamelessly puerile comedy begins after our furry friend and his new wife Tami-Lynn (Barth) are denied the chance to adopt a baby, and sees Ted embark on a crusade to New York to appeal against the decision and reclaim his liberties. This sequel is lewd and loud, and for every gag that flops, two belters are right behind it.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 125 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Alan Taylor
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith

More time-travel hi-jinks as the Resistance battles Skynet and timelines collide all over the shop. Solidly workmanlike action sequences meet bewilderingly confusing writing and the characters are soon as lost as the audience, in what feels more like a parody of the franchise than the dawn of a new era.

  • Directed by: Toby Genkel, Sean McCormack
  • Cast: Callum Maloney, Dermot Magennis, Ava Connolly, Tara Flynn

When the world's animals board Noah's ark to escape from the flood, two junior creatures fall overboard and must find their way back to the ship. The extremely predictable story is a bit too similar to Finding Nemo and there's none of the wit, voice-over wizardry or impressive visuals of a Pixar production.
