Battle of the Sexes

Battle of the Sexes
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Andrea Riseborough, Elisabeth Shue

Based on the true story of the 1973 tennis match between unrepentant male chauvinist ex-no. 1 Bobby Riggs (Carell) and Wimbledon champion Billie Jean King (Stone). An irresistible story, with Carell finding the outrageous and the sad within Riggs, and Stone’s warm and forceful performance winning the film.

Blade of the Immortal
  • 2017
  • Japan / UK
  • 2h 20min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Takashi Miike
  • Cast: Takuya Kimura, Hana Sugisaki, Sôta Fukushi

Immortal swordsman Manji (Kimura) is haunted by the death of his sister until he meets Rin (Sugisaki) who reminds him of her and who also seeks vengeance: redemption time! Ultra-violent samurai action directed with typical panache but also with surprising conscience and splashes of macabre humour.

Brigsby Bear

Brigsby Bear
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 37min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Dave McCary
  • Cast: Kyle Mooney, Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes, Jane Adams, Mark Hamill

James (Mooney) was kidnapped as a boy by April (Adams) and Ted (Hamill) and was raised partly on a TV show that Ted made just for him, Brigsby Bear Adventures; as a man, James has to adjust to the real world. Weird and wonderful comedy drama which intelligently and sympathetically considers arrested development.

Daddy's Home 2

Daddy's Home 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, John Cena, John Lithgow, Mel Gibson

Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell) are now best of friends, but have to spend their holidays with their respective fathers (Lithgow and Gibson). A leaden-footed screenplay disgraces and humiliates everyone on screen, celebrating toxic masculinity and portraying women as either shrill party poopers or delinquent femme fatales. Worst film of the year.

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Armando Iannucci
  • Cast: Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend

When Joseph Stalin abruptly dies in 1953, his subordinates immediately start jockeying for the position of his replacement. The political backstabbing makes for maximum black comedy and exuberant farce, and the deft interplay of a gifted cast makes the whole film a consistent joy.

The Dinner

The Dinner
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h
  • Directed by: Oren Moverman
  • Cast: Richard Gere, Rebecca Hall, Steve Coogan, Laura Linney

Stan (Gere), a congressman, arrives at a dinner with his second wife Katelyn (Hall), to meet his misanthropic brother Paul (Coogan) and his wife Claire (Linney). Listless and overblown adaptation of Herman Koch’s bestseller, with a frustrating flashback-heavy structure.

  • 1h 38min

  • Directed by: James Franco
  • Cast: James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Hannibal Buress, Melanie Griffith, Sharon Stone, Jacki Weaver

The story behind the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, regarded by many as the worst movie ever made; Franco plays the hapless auteur with impressive mimicry and sincerity. A charming tale about friendship, reaching for your dreams and trying to make it in Hollywood.

Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Paul McGuigan
  • Cast: Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Kenneth Cranham, Vanessa Redgrave, Frances Barber, Julie Walters

London, 1978: young actor Peter Turner (Bell) meets and falls in love with 50s film star Gloria Grahame (Bening). Sensitively adapted from Turner’s own memoir, it features a luminous performance from Bening as the faded star and moves with wonderful fluidity from the present to flashbacks. A lovely celebration of a unique woman.

The Florida Project
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 55min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sean Baker
  • Cast: Willem Dafoe, Brooklynn Prince, Valeria Cotto

Moonee (Prince) is a six-year-old being raised by her trash-talking mom in a motel near Florida’s Disney World, where she and her pal Scooty (Riviera) terrorise guests at a neighbouring establishment. This low-key masterpiece is full of affection for its adorable urchins while not being blind to the occasional danger of their situation.

It's A Wonderful Life
  • 1946
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 31min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Michael Spierig/Peter Spierig
  • Cast: Matt Passmore, Tobin Bell, Callum Keith Rennie

Bodies start appearing in public places, bearing signature of serial killer Jigsaw, and Detective Halloran (Rennie) tries to figure out what’s going on. The traps aren’t all that inventive this time round but hardcore fans of the Saw franchise should be delighted, even if this reboot won’t tempt the unconvinced.

Justice League
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa

A team of superheroes forms to fight an alien invasion led by chief baddie Steppenwolf (Hinds). As so often, the villain is less interesting than the heroes, being a soulless CGI creation, but Affleck and Gadot are growing into their roles and it’s a lot better than the lumbering Batman vs Superman.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

The Man Who Invented Christmas
  • 2017
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bharat Nalluri
  • Cast: Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce, Simon Callow, Donald Sumpter, Miriam Margolyes, Morfydd Clark, Justin Edwards, Ian McNeice, Bill Paterson

Charles Dickens (Stevens), down on his luck, is in desperate need of a hit when Ebenezer Scrooge (Plummer) pops into his head and starts offering pointers. Decent if occasionally twee adaptation of Les Standiford’s non-fiction book, with Stevens being sympathetic and energetic and Plummer clearly relishing a chance to do Scrooge.

Menashe

Menashe
  • 2017
  • 1h 22min
  • U
  • Directed by: Joshua Z Weinstein
  • Cast: Menashe Lustig, Yoel Falkowitz

In a conservative Hasidic community in Brooklyn, widowed father Menashe (Lustig) wants to raise his own 12-year-old son (Niborski), but the rabbi rules that the boy must live with relatives until such time as Menashe is ready to remarry. Lightly comic character piece which examines its milieu with affection and humour.

Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 54min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley

Murder in the dead of night, a carriage of suspects trapped in an avalanche, and the world’s greatest detective is on hand to solve it. Against the odds, Branagh pulls off a stylish, first-class, surprisingly poignant retelling with fluid camerawork and a top cast, and has a fine old time as the arrogant, outrageously moustachioed Poirot.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

The Star

The Star
  • 2017
  • 1h 26min
  • U
  • Directed by: Timothy Reckart
  • Cast: Steven Yeun, Kristin Chenoweth, Zachary Levi

A story of the New Testament Nativity told from the perspective of the animals. Dry and bland, but an over-qualified voice cast helps, and there are enough celebrity cameos to give parents a way to pass the time. And as animated bible stories go, at least it’s shorter than Prince of Egypt.

Stronger

Stronger
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 59min

  • Directed by: David Gordon Green
  • Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson

Jeff Bauman (Gyllenhaal) is waiting for on-off girlfriend Erin (Maslany) at the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013 when a bomb goes off, resulting in the amputation of his legs. Biographical drama with fine work from Gyllenhaal and Maslany and from Richardson as Jeff’s mother, although it becomes crowdpleasing and conventional.

Suburbicon
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Clooney
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, Noah Jupe

1959: in the dream community of Suburbicon, businessman Gardner Lodge (Damon) and his family are attacked in their home and his wife is killed. Then her sister (Moore) moves in, and suspicion is aroused. Jaunty, jarring mix of dark comedy and social commentary which never quite gels, despite a fine cast.

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarök
  • 2017

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Taika Waititi
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins

Thor (Hemsworth) reunites with his duplicitous brother Loki (Hiddleston) to battle Hela, Goddess of Death (Blanchett). Director Taika Waititi averts narrative pomposity in favour of charm, comedy and gargantuan spectacle, while Hemsworth sends himself up with skill and confidence. An askew, irreverent and wonderfully idiotic addition to the MCU.

Auggie Pullman (Tremblay) has endured over 27 operations to correct his facial abnormalities and is at last going to school, to his parents’ concern. Chbosky manages to pluck your heartstrings without coating the story in sugar, thanks in part to the excellent work of Tremblay, Robert and Wilson.
