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.

The Angry Birds Movie
  • 2016
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Clay Kaytis/Fergal Reilly
  • 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.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 92 min

  • Directed by: Nicholas Stoller
  • Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Seth Rogen

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.

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.

  • US
  • 108 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Tim Miller
  • Written by: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein

Cynical crook Wade Wilson (Reynolds) undergoes an experimental procedure to transform him into a superhero, but emerges as the scarred and revenge-bent Deadpool. The emphasis on knowing humour is a bit obnoxious but it's a lot of fun, and Reynolds, with his likeability and swagger, was born to play the title role.

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.

  • 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.

Green Room

Green Room
  • 2016
  • US
  • 95 min

  • Directed by: Jeremy Saulnier
  • Cast: Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Patrick Stewart

When an earnest punk band plays a backwoods venue and witnesses the aftermath of a murder, they are menaced (and worse) by neo-Nazis led by the smart and respectable-seeming Darcy (Stewart). Saulnier directs with vigour, wit and flair, Yelchin and Poots are impressive and Stewart delivers understated evil; exhilarating and excruciating.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Directed by: Susanna White
  • Written by: Hossein Amini (screenplay), John le Carré (novel)
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgård, Damian Lewis, Naomie Harris, Mark Gatiss

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.

  • Cast: Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes

When the Farmer gets lost in the Big City, Shaun (Fletcher) and his friends leave Mossy Bottom Farm to rescue him. With a steady stream of hilarious, well-timed sight gags, it's a beautifully made comedy for the whole family, packed with the kind of detail that rewards future viewings.

  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Alberto Mar
  • Written by: Kevin Seccia, Timothy McKeon
  • Cast: Jason Harris, Chris Edgerly, Ben Diskin, Melissa Disney, Bill Lobely

Top Cat (Harris) leads the gang into combat against an evil robot army, with the love of his sweetheart (Disney) at stake. Mar takes a refreshingly old-school approach after annoyingly CGI-heavy versions of other TV cartoon favourites; adults may find it a persuasive alternative to today's crasser children's entertainments.

  • 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

  • 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.
