American Sniper

American Sniper
  • 2014
  • US
  • 134 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Cast: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Jake McDorman

Eastwood, noted for his kinship with the common soldier, is the ideal director for this true-life drama based on the autobiography of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle (Cooper). Cooper continues to be impressive but the film unravels when it shows Kyle's home life, failing to engage with either marital or wider political issues.

Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6
  • 2014
  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Williams, Don Hall
  • Cast: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Génesis Rodríguez, T. J. Miller, Daniel Henney, Maya Rudolph

Hiro (Potter) is a 14-year-old robotics genius who, after a family tragedy, teams up with inflatable robot Baymax (Adsit) to become crimefighting superheroes. This Disney adaptation of a Marvel comic deals with dark themes of loss and grief but also has plenty of heart and some big laughs, especially from Adsit.

The Boy Next Door

The Boy Next Door
  • 2015
  • US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Rob Cohen
  • Written by: Barbara Curry
  • Cast: Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Kristin Chenoweth

Classics teacher Claire (Lopez) is seduced into a one-night stand by handsome psycho Noah (Guzman), who gives her a copy of the Iliad ("It's a first edition!" she gasps.) Hilariously bad stalker flick, a must-see for all the wrong reasons, most of which have to do with debut screenwriter Curry's howler-ridden script.

  • Directed by: Richard Linklater
  • Written by: Richard Linklater

Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey
  • 2015
  • US
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle

Despite its troubling gender politics and distinct lack of plot, the likeable Johnson brings nuance and charm to a paper-thin character; Dornan manages to offer a hint of humanity; and given the many constraints, this sleek, fairly trim and occasionally sensual adaptation is the best imaginable outcome.

Focus
  • 2015
  • US
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Glenn Ficarra/John Requa
  • Cast: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Rodrigo Santoro

Nicky (Smith) is a lifelong con man who takes wannabe swindler Jess (Robbie) under his wing, only to fall for her; dull romantic twists and not-very-ingenious stings ensue. The two stars have almost no chemistry and the film's greatest scam is that it fools you into thinking it's going to amount to more than it does.

Into the Woods

Into the Woods
  • 2014
  • US
  • 124 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Marshall
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, Johnny Depp

Disney's long-in-the-making adaptation of Sondheim and Lapine's musical, in which a clutch of fairytale characters help a baker (Corden) and his wife (Blunt) lift a curse which prevents them from having a baby. Despite some great moments, the story drags; if you're a fan it's likely to please, but it won't win anyone else over.

  • Directed by: David Robert Mitchell
  • Cast: Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Olivia Luccardi

Jay (Monroe) is a Michigan teenager whose lover reveals that he's infected her with a potentially deadly curse. Sensitive, visually arresting and utterly disturbing horror about the possible consequences of a sexual encounter, with a deeply affecting performance from Monroe and an excellent supporting cast.

Jupiter Ascending

Jupiter Ascending
  • 2015

  • Directed by: Lana Wachowski, Andy Wachowski
  • Cast: Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D'Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith

Jupiter Jones (Kunis) is a disgruntled cleaner who's rescued by a snarling lycanthrope in gravity boots (Tatum) in order to fulfil her true destiny as monarch of Earth. The Wachowskis' labour of love plays like a complicated mix of The Princess Diaries and The Fifth Element, except that it's neither gritty nor particularly entertaining.

Kingsman: The Secret Service
  • 2015
  • UK

  • Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
  • Cast: Colin Firth, Samuel L Jackson, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton, Michael Caine

Eggsy (Egerton) is a streetwise petty criminal, who debonair secret agent Harry (Firth) inducts into Kingsman, a super-secret spy organisation going up against bonkers, lisping billionaire Richmond Valentine (Jackson). Egerton is confident and engaging, Firth is visibly enjoying himself, and despite the odd puerile joke it's riotously entertaining.

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
  • 2014
  • US
  • PG
  • Directed by: Shawn Levy
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Dan Stevens, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Owen Wilson

Former museum nightwatchman Larry (Stiller), now a manager at New York's Museum of Natural History, goes to London to rekindle a magical object. Stiller looks bored, and despite some refreshing cameos and the last, shining glimpse of Williams, it's so laboured and lousy it makes you want to punch yourself in the face.

Peppa Pig: The Golden Boots

Peppa Pig: The Golden Boots
  • 2015
  • 60 min
  • U
  • Cast: John Sparkes, Morwenna Banks

A new, 15-minute Peppa Pig adventure with some classic episodes and tatty, stilted, pre-recorded 'interactivity' from the Channel 5 Milkshake! team. The result looks and feels like a cynical cash-grab, likely to please tots but to induce stoic grimness in their parents.

  • 2014
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Dean Israelite
  • Written by: Jason Pagan, Andrew Stark
  • Cast: Amy Landecker, Sofia Black-D'Elia, Ginny Gardner

When teenage brainiac David (Weston), his sister (Gardner) and his buddies find his late dad's blueprints for a time machine, they build it, like you do. It's aimed at those who've never seen classic time-loop films (Groundhog Day, Looper, Back to the Future etc) which is just as well, since it steals from them all, adds nothing and ends limply.

  • Cast: Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Judi Dench

This sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (yes, you may have guessed) has an ensemble cast, and follows the expansionist dreams of Sonny. He has his eye on a second property, but there are still predicaments to resolve in his first.

  • Directed by: Mark Burton, Richard Starzack
  • 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.

  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Tom Prior

Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Wilde (Jones) lock eyes at a university party, but their budding love affair is given a blow by his diagnosis of motor neurone disease. Redmayne is astonishingly good and Jones inspires sympathy and admiration, but the script is never really convincing.

Affluent LA businessman Doug (Gad) is getting married to Gretchen (Cuoco-Sweeting) but he has no friends, so he contacts 'Wedding Ringer' Jimmy (Hart) who makes a living being the best man for grooms who don't otherwise have one. Crude and mirthless comedy squandering otherwise talented performers.
