Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass
  • 2016
  • US
  • 113 min
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Cast: Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Annie Mumolo, Jada Pinkett Smith, Christina Applegate

Soccer mom Amy (Kunis), thwarted by the controlling PTA, befriends repressed Kiki (Bell) and outrageous Carla (Hahn). Rude, crude and raucous but nevertheless rather pleasing feelgood froth, championing bad behaviour as a solution to social repression.

The BFG

The BFG
  • 2016
  • US/UK
  • 117 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Written by: Roald Dahl (novel), Melissa Mathison (screenplay)
  • Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall

Eight year old Sophie (Barnhill) looks out her window one evening to discover something terrifying – the Big Friendly Giant (Rylance), who unlike his giant brothers doesn't actually want to eat her. Magical, funny and surprising stuff from Spielberg, lacking only some of the menace of Dahl's original, but genuinely heartwarming.

Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne
  • 2016
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Greengrass
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Julia Stiles

Jason Bourne (Damon) is back with a vengeance, literally this time, as information about the death of his father leads him to go up against CIA Director Dewey (Jones) and new nemesis Heather Lee (Vikander). Stonking action, high stakes, amazing chases, Damon is sensational: the perfect 'soft reboot'.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rawson Marshall Thurber
  • Written by: Ike Barinholtz, David Stassen, Peter Steinfeld, Rawson Marshall Thurber
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Ed Helms

In the 20 years since he was voted 'Most Likely to Succeed', Calvin (Hart)'s career has stalled, but then he gets a friend request from former schoolmate Bob (Johnson) who turns out to be a rogue CIA agent. Story-wise it's a mess, but the benign tone and loveable leads get you on board and make for a charming if bombastic bromance.

David Brent: Life on the Road

Life on the Road
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ricky Gervais
  • Written by: Ricky Gervais
  • Cast: Ricky Gervais, Doc Brown, Andy Burrows, Rebecca Gethings

David Brent (Gervais) takes unpaid leave to pursue rock stardom with his band Foregone Conclusion. The skin-crawling songs are worth the price of admission, although the comedy feels crueller than before, and after a brilliant start and amusing middle, the film dissolves into cheap sentiment.

In the sequel to the much-loved Finding Nemo, annoyingly forgetful Dory goes on an adventure to find her family, crossing three oceans to get to them with Marlon and Nemo just a swish behind her.

Ghostbusters

  • US

  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon

Physicist Erin (Wiig) finds herself teaming up with estranged high school pal Abby (McCarthy) and her eccentric engineer Jillian (McKinnon) in search of ghosts. Marred only by excessive reverence for the original, it's a spirited, funny and touching reboot which sticks two fingers up at sexist trolls.

  • 100 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Mike Thurmeier/Galen T. Chu
  • Cast: Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Simon Pegg, Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah

Same story as always: global catastrophe threatens Sid, Manny and Diego and they have to get to safety. It manages to be relatively fresh, thanks to the increased amount of time given to accident-prone Scrat and his Tex Avery-ish antics in defence of his giant acorn; surely the lovable rodent has earned his own franchise.

  • Directed by: David F Sandberg
  • Cast: Maria Bello, Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman

Sophie (Bello), a woman with a history of mental health issues, finds herself stalked by an entity that only comes out when the lights are turned off. Skilfully-made if bleak debut by Swedish writer-director, with convincing work from Bello and some grippingly tense sequences.

  • USA

  • Directed by: Henry Joost/Ariel Schulman
  • Written by: Jeanne Ryan, Jessica Sharzer
  • Cast: Emma Roberts, Dave Franco, Emily Meade

Vee (Roberts) and Ian (Franco) become engaged in an online game that gifts them cash for carrying out increasingly risky dares. Roberts and Franco have great chemistry, but the silly plotline (adapted from Jeanne Ryan’s cliché-ridden YA novel), ugly gender politics and obvious conclusion make it a clumsy and preachy cautionary tale.

Nine Lives

Nine Lives
  • 2016
  • US

  • Directed by: Barry Sonnenfeld
  • Cast: Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner, Robbie Amell, Christopher Walken

Tom Brand (Spacey) is a Trump-style entrepreneur who gets swapped into the body of a cat: one week before change irreversible, must learn life lessons, etc. Dim-witted children's comedy with a ridiculous premise, rubbish effects, heavy sentiment and a phoned-in voice performance from Spacey.

  • 2016

  • Cast: Oakes Fegley, Oona Laurence, Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban

Forest ranger Grace (Howard) discovers orphaned Pete (Fegley), who has lived in the woods for six years with a mysterious dragon named Elliott. Lowery uses old-school charm and a sense of place to make a genial fable of grief and growth pains; one of the best kids' movies of the summer.

  • Cast: Elizabeth Mitchell, Frank Grillo, Mykelti Williamson

In 2040, the sole survivor of a Purge killing is now a US senator (Mitchell) running for President, and she and her head of security find themselves out in the streets on Purge night. Exciting, brutal and dumb in equal measures, although it runs out of steam in its final act.

Little Max (Louis CK) is a small dog who gets very lonely when his beloved human Katie (Kemper) leaves each day. But then she brings home a huge, shaggy rescue mutt (Stonestreet) and hijinks ensue. Undeniably derivative but cute and energetic comedy sustained by its fine voice cast.

  • Cast: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne

A group of incarcerated supervillains is recruited to undertake dangerous missions. The result is so conventional, it's twee: Deadshot (Smith) just wants to be a good dad, Diablo (Hernandez) spends the whole film moping and Harley Quinn (Robbie)'s idea of bad behaviour is breaking a window. With unconvincing effects and cliché-ridden dialogue, it's plain awful.

  • 2016
  • UK
  • 97 min

  • Directed by: Philippa Lowthorpe
  • Cast: Rafe Spall, Andrew Scott, Kelly Macdonald, Jessica Hynes, Harry Enfield

Lake District, 1930: the plucky Walker siblings go up against fierce local gels Nancy and Peggy for possession of an island, while reclusive uncle Jim (Spall) is stalked by a sinister foreigner (Scott). Charmingly nostalgic kids' adventure, subtly modernised, with well-cast kids and Macdonald a pleasure as always. Sweetly satisfying as a cream tea.

War Dogs
  • 2016
  • US
  • 114 min
  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Miles Teller, Jonah Hill, Ana de Armas, Bradley Cooper

Miami massage therapist David (Teller) hooks up with old schoolfriend Efraim (Hill), and the pair go into arms trading. Frenetic, foul-mouthed and frequently hilarious, and loosely based on a true story; Hill and Teller are utterly watchable, even if it's clear that the filmmakers are a little too in love with them.
