Annie

Annie
  • 2014
  • US
  • 118 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Will Gluck
  • Cast: Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhané Wallis, Rose Byrne

Annie (Wallis) leads a group of multi-racial foster kids in Harlem; when grumpy magnate Will Stacks (Foxx) saves her from being run over, he's persuaded to become her guardian. Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) has real screen presence, but it's largely forgettable.

Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 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.

Insurgent

Insurgent
  • 2015
  • US
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Robert Schwentke
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller

Tris (Woodley), Four (James) and the remnants of the Dauntless race tirelessly hither and thither in part 2 of the Divergent series. Woodley does very well with what she's given, but the other parts are underwritten and it all feels like a build-up to the extended finale of this bewildering and hardly essential franchise.

Gone Girl

Gone Girl
  • 2014
  • US
  • 145 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Fincher
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike

Nick (Affleck) comes home on his fifth wedding anniversary to find his wife Amy (Pike) gone, and a series of revelations cast him in the worst possible light. Fincher directs with cool proficiency and a sense of brutal fun; Affleck is perfect, and Pike gives a bravura, breakout performance.

The Gunman

The Gunman
  • 2015
  • Spain/UK/France
  • 115 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Pierre Morel
  • Cast: Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Jasmine Trinca, Javier Bardem

Jim Terrier (Penn) is a hired assassin who undertakes a political hit; years later he becomes a target, and must find who wants him dead. Risible thriller with a clichéd script that wastes good actors (Bardem, Rylance, Penn himself) in a clumsy attempt to reinvent its star and producer as an action hero.

  • 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 confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice make for a grating experience.

Paddington

Paddington
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

  • 2015

  • Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
  • Written by: Brad Ingelsby
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Genesis Rodriguez, Joel Kinnaman

Jimmy (Neeson), a lonely alcoholic and associate of gangster Shawn Maguire (Harris), is broken by regret for his sins, but when Maguire puts out a hit on Jimmy's son Michael (Kinnaman), we know what'll happen: Liam Kicks Ass. Solid, watchable actioner with fine work from Neeson and Kinnaman; no classic but satisfactory.

  • PG
  • Directed by: John Madden
  • 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.

The Seventh Son

The Seventh Son
  • 2013
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: Sergey Bodrov
  • Cast: Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges

Tom Ward (Barnes), the seventh son of a seventh son, becomes apprentice to the last of the 'spooks', Master Gregory (Bridges), with the aim of eradicating supernatural forces. Enjoyable hokum, with Moore wonderfully bitchy and Bridges unleashing Brian Blessed-like levels of ham. To be treasured by connoisseurs of truly bad film.

  • Cast: Antonio Banderas, Clancy Brown, Tom Kenny

Life goes on at usual in Bikini Bottom until real-life pirate Burger-Beard (Banderas) causes apocalyptic mayhem; SpongeBob and arch-nemesis Plankton must team up to defeat him. Despite a lazy superhero plot twist in the final act, it has enough colourful characters and hilarious one-liners to keep both kids and adults entertained.
