Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • 2015
  • US
  • 141 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joss Whedon
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Samuel L. Jackson

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much emotional impact.

Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 105 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

Dino Time

Dino Time
  • 2012
  • 86 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Yoon-suk Choi/John Kafka
  • Cast: Melanie Griffith, Pamela Adlon, Rob Schneider

Hyperactive Ernie, best friend Max and sister Julia are sent back 65 million years in time, only to be adopted by a Tyrannosaurus which mistakes them for her babies. Irrepressibly peppy, luridly-hued, mercifully short CGI offering from Korea, with a B-list Hollywood voice cast, undistinguished animation and lightly-delivered messages.

  • Directed by: Tim Johnson
  • Cast: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

Oh (Parsons) is part of an alien race who've colonised Earth by decanting humans to amusement parks in Australia, but he's forced to team up with lost little girl Tip (Rihanna). A grating experience, thanks to a confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road
  • 2015
  • US/Australia
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Miller
  • Written by: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nico Lathouris
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Reluctant hero Max (Hardy) is drawn into helping Imperator Furiosa (Theron, excellent), who's liberated a group of sexually enslaved women and is being pursued for her trouble by the grotesque Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Precision-executed lunacy, a brilliantly feminist 'western on wheels' with a generous helping of heart.

Moomins on the Riviera

Moomins on the Riviera
  • 2014
  • Finland/France
  • 80 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Xavier Picard, Hanna Hemilä
  • Cast: Russell Tovey, Nathaniel Parker, Tracy Ann Oberman, Stephanie Winiecki

The Moomins holiday in the South of France and fall in love with casino gambling and ritzy boutiques – all except for Moominmamma (Oberman), who heads for the beach. The elegant hand-drawn animation is a pleasure, although the casual pacing might not appeal to kids weaned on breathless action. A nostalgic treat.

Pitch Perfect 2

Pitch Perfect 2

  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Adam DeVine, Kelley Jakle, Chrissie Fit, Hailee Steinfeld, Katey Sagal, Elizabeth Banks

After a catastrophic wardrobe malfunction at the White House, the Barden Bellas attempt to get their groove back in a Eurovision-like song contest. Despite highlights such as Lee's brilliantly weird performance as Lilly, the knowing charm of the original is diluted and Wilson's schtick, in particular, is starting to grate.

Poltergeist

  • Cast: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kennedi Clements

Eric (Rockwell) and Amy (DeWitt), three kids in tow, move into a new house in a typical American movie suburb, and strange things start happening. Likeable performances (including Harris as a TV ghostbuster) can't rescue this remake of the Spielberg/Hooper 1982 original from being not very terrifying or thrilling.

  • 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.

Spooks: The Greater Good

  • 2015
  • UK
  • 104 min

  • Directed by: Bharat Nalluri
  • Cast: Peter Firth, Kit Harington, Elyes Gabel, Jennifer Ehle

When MI5 bigwig Harry (Firth) apparently commits suicide, his rogue godson Will (Harington) is ensnared to find out the truth. The TV show's big-screen outing is very enjoyable but cinematically pedestrian, neither anywhere near the Bond/Bourne standard nor as grittily realistic as it thinks it is, but Firth and Harington play well together.

  • Cast: George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie

Science-obsessed teenager Casey (Robertson) teams up with mysterious Athena (Cassidy) and child-genius-turned-grump Frank (Clooney) to unlock the secrets of a mysterious pin. Futuristic family adventure, refreshingly driven by two young women; Casey and Athena are inspiring heroes and the visuals are stunning.

  • 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.

  • Cast: Cal Barnes, Matthew Bohrer, Courtney Halverson

Six friends hanging out with each other on video chat become aware that they're the target of a mysterious hacker/stalker. A cleverly-done video-chat-turned-nightmare session which exhausts its concept well short of its modest 83-minute running time; it's hard to care about characters who are bullies and betrayers.
