Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
  • 2015
  • US
  • 86 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Walt Becker
  • Written by: Ross Bagdasarian, Janice Karman, Randi Mayem Singer
  • Cast: Jason Lee, Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Bella Thorne, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Tony Hale

The three squeaky-voiced vermin hit the road on a mission to stop their owner Dave (Lee) from proposing. A passing reference to John Waters' 1972 cult classic Pink Flamingos, which features an infamous excrement-eating scene, highlights the extent to which this film serves pretty much the same substance to the viewer.

Bastille Day

Bastille Day
  • 2016
  • Directed by: James Watkins
  • Written by: Andrew Baldwin
  • Cast: Idris Elba, Richard Madden, Kelly Reilly

Sean Briar (Elba) is a tough CIA agent who uncovers a bomb plot in Paris. Frenetic thriller which comes across like Elba's audition for 007; the France terror attacks of November 2015 make it seem ill-timed but it's fast, furious and (sometimes unintentionally) funny.

Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War
  • 2016
  • US
  • 147 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Written by: Christopher Markus , Stephen McFeely, Mark Millar (comic book)
  • Cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo, Daniel Brühl, William Hurt

When world leaders demand that the Avengers operate under UN supervision, the team splits. If you haven't seen previous instalments it will make no sense, but if you have, all the plot points bear bittersweet fruit, in a brilliant combination of hectic action and one liners with intimate, heartbreaking moments.

Eddie the Eagle

Eddie the Eagle
  • 2016
  • UK/US/Germany
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken

Eddie Edwards (Egerton) is determined to be a ski jumper, but his only hope lies through boozy, washed-up former star Bronson (Jackman). Feelgood dramedy more 'inspired by' than 'based on' the real-life story of a plucky loser, with Egerton delightfully innocent as the hapless Eddie, and some thrilling ski jumping scenes.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book
  • 2016
  • US
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: Justin Marks (screenplay), Rudyard Kipling
  • Cast: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

Crafty mechanic and aspiring superhero Ratchet teams up with robot Clank to join the Galactic Rangers in their struggle against devious planet-zapping types. PlayStation favourites transfer to the big screen with plenty of energy, if not much in the way of emotional engagement or originality.

Robinson Crusoe

  • 2016
  • 90 min
  • Directed by: Vincent Kesteloot/Ben Stassen
  • Cast: Ron Allen, George Babbit, Laila Berzins

In this forgettable animation, Robinson Crusoe (Lowenthal) lives on a desert island where his enemies are…two evil cats. A lacklustre script and dull storytelling make this one not worth taking the family to.

  • Directed by: Paolo Sorrentino
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Rachel Weisz, Harvey Keitel, Jane Fonda

Retired composer and conductor Fred (Caine) is on holiday in a luxury Alpine hotel, where he's joined by lifelong friend, film director Mick (Keitel). Flamboyant and hugely eccentric reflection on the regrets and indignities of old age, with wondrous visuals and strong performances.

  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Byron Howard/Rich Moore/Jared Bush

  • Cast: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba

Trailblazing rabbit Judy (Goodwin) goes to the city to join the police, and teams up with con artist fox Nick (Bateman) on the trail of a missing otter. Cheerfully feminist but never preachy, with gorgeous animation and a classy cast, it's a model piece of family entertainment.
