Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto

Blade Runner K (Gosling) is tasked with finding replicants who are passing themselves off as human, but then he makes an earth-shattering, game-changing discovery. Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel to Scott’s original is beautiful, powerful and relevant; Gosling is exceptional, and Ford steals the show as the ageing but still gruff and quick-witted Deckard. A triumph.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Soren
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Ed Helms

Animated superhero comedy based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey. This is a film that sides with the kids, right down to its sly jabs at uncaring, cash-starved school systems and loose message about the value of laughing at yourself; and, of course, at the mere existence of a planet called Uranus.

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.

Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool

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

  • 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.

Happy Death Day

Happy Death Day
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 36min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Christopher Landon
  • Cast: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine

Student Tree Gelbman (Rothe) is forced to relive the day of her grisly murder over and over again until she finds out who killed her. Rothe deftly switches between terror, exasperation, composure and mischief, in a surprisingly funny and effective horror comedy which is very aware that it’s Scream meets Groundhog Day.

Ingrid Goes West

Ingrid Goes West
  • 2017
  • US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matt Spicer
  • Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, O'Shea Jackson Jr

Ingrid (Plaza) is a cyberstalker who becomes obsessed with part-time photographer and social media star Taylor (Olsen). Writer/director Spicer’s debut is a wildly funny and smartly written look at narcissism and fantasy, with Jackson Jr highly endearing as Ingrid’s nerdy landlord and Plaza excellent as the crazed, vulnerable, lonely Ingrid.

Intimissimi on Ice with Andrea Bocelli
  • 2017
  • 1h 45min

With over 80 million albums sold, Andrea Bocelli returns to cinemas to star in this feature-length special event ice show where opera, pop music, figure skating and fashion combine for this breath-taking performance produced and filmed at the iconic Arena Di Verona in Italy.

  • 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

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.

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.

My Little Pony: The Movie
  • 2017
  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jayson Thiessen
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber

The Friendship Festival of Canterlot is disrupted by ruthless unicorn Tempest Shadow (Blunt), so Twilight Sparkle (Strong) and pals must embark on a rescue mission. It manages to showcase the brand without sacrificing every last ounce of soul, and is cute, simple and surefooted enough for its target audience, if not for anyone else.

Only the Brave
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 13min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joseph Kosinski
  • Cast: Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, Jennifer Connelly

Eric Marsh (Brolin) is the leader of a team of Arizona firefighters called the Granite Mountain Hotshots, who are called in to battle the Yarnell Hill Fire of 2013. Simplistic drama based on a true story but with some impressive action sequences and a gripping enough tribute to the heroism of first responders.

  • 2017

  • 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.

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.
