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.

Bad Neighbours 2
  • 2016
  • US
  • 92 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nicholas Stoller
  • Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Seth Rogen

When college student Shelby (Moretz) forms a new sorority so that she and her friends can have as much fun as the guys, it annoys their neighbours the Radners (Byrne and Rogen). A fun, feminist sequel with manic energy, an empowering message and a cast gifted with spot-on timing; Moretz especially is having a great time.

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.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
  • 2016
  • US
  • 151 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg

Superman (Cavill) faces off against Batman (Affleck) in the aftermath of the near-destruction of Metropolis at the end of Man of Steel. Despite a pretty strong screenplay, the two leads are no more than functional and Wonder Woman (Gadot) is a damp squib. But if the film lacks Marvel's sense of fun, in its fidgety and fearful way it feels entirely relevant.

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.

Eye in the Sky

  • 2015
  • UK
  • 102 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Gavin Hood
  • Written by: Guy Hibbert
  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman

When a military operation to bring in a radicalised Englishwoman turns into a planned drone strike, commanding officer Katherine Powell (Mirren) and her colleagues have to juggle military necessity with saving civilian lives. Nerve-shredding and thought-provoking against-the-clock thriller which probes the moral grey areas of drone warfare.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 110 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg

Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing. Streep throws herself endearingly into the role, Grant is wonderful as her debonair husband and Frears keeps a confident balance of uproarious laughs and genuine pathos.

The Jungle Book
  • 2016

  • 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

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: Jay Roach
  • Written by: John McNamara, Bruce Cook
  • Cast: Elle Fanning, Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane

Screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Cranston) finds his career coming to a sudden end when he is blacklisted and accused of being a communist. McNamara’s breezy screenplay condenses complex events and an eventful life into a trim, accessible feature, and Cranston is compelling. Informative and entertaining.

  • US
  • 108 min

  • 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.
