10 Cloverfield Lane

10 Cloverfield Lane
  • 2016
  • US
  • 105 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Dan Trachtenberg
  • Cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, John Gallagher Jr.

Michelle (Winstead) crashes her car and wakes up in a bunker belonging to survivalist Howard (Goodman), who tells her there's been a chemical attack above ground. Tense-as-hell sidequel to 2008 alien invasion movie Cloverfield, with a sparkling script and outstanding performances, especially from Goodman.

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.

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.

  • 2016

  • 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.

Demolition
  • 2015
  • US

  • Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, Chris Cooper, Heather Lind

New York investment banker Davis (Gyllenhaal) starts behaving erratically after the death of his wife in a car crash, but then he becomes friends with customer service operator Karen (Watts). Earnest but trite look at bereavement with a clichéd script and uniformly overwrought performances.

Despite The Falling Snow

Despite The Falling Snow
  • 2016
  • UK, Canada
  • 93 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Shamim Sarif
  • Written by: Shamim Sarif
  • Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Charles Dance, Antje Traue

In Moscow 1959, a spy named Katya (Ferguson) romances a young Kremlin bureaucrat (Reid); in Moscow 1992, Katya's niece Lauren (also Ferguson) seeks the truth about her aunt via elderly Alexander (Dance). Humdrum spy-themed romance with lots of long walks in the snow, unhappy reveals and crap dialogue, which never build to the long-promised payoff.

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.

  • 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.

  • 2016
  • US

  • Directed by: Simon Verhoeven
  • Cast: Alycia Debnam-Carey, Liesl Ahlers, William Moseley, Connor Paolo

Popular student Laura (Debnam-Carey) befriends class weirdo Marina (Ahlers) who has no Facebook friends at all. Things go downhill from there. Horribly misguided attempt at a horror flick about social media with unintentional LOLs aplenty; some creepy effects aside, it's stale and unoriginal and the character of Marina is flimsy to the point of offensive.

How To Be Single
  • 2016
  • US
  • 110 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Christian Ditter
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Alison Brie, Leslie Mann, Rebel Wilson

This female-fronted comedy about life and love is set in New York City. When Alice (Johnson) is faced with singledom, Robin (Wilson) teaches her how to let her hair down. The film follows their friendship, as well as the stories of Meg (Mann), who makes the decision to get pregnant via an anonymous sperm donor, and Lucy (Brie), a woman obsessed with online dating. Ultimately, it leaves you wanting more Mann (so hilarious is her performance), though the message of self-love is welcome and well-receieved.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Cedric Nicolas-Troyan
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain

This follow-up / prequel / sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman manages to wrap another story around Snow White’s, without need for a Kristen Stewart cameo. This time, the focus is on Chris Hemsworth’s Eric, exploring how he became a Huntsman. Directed by debutant Cedric Nicolas-Troyan – the story intricately winds past and present together, but unfortunately, this franchise feels like it has run its course.

  • 106 min

  • 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.

  • Cast: Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart

When the funeral of a British Prime Minister is attacked by terrorists, Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Butler) launches himself into the line of fire and is unfortunately not killed. Butler does the action-man/asshole schtick in London this time, with the filmmakers dolloping on extra xenophobia, racial stereotypes and right-wing tub-thumping.

  • 2016
  • 94 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Kirk Jones
  • Written by: Nia Vardalos
  • Cast: Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Michael Constantine

Fourteen years on, Toula (Vardalos) is back, still married to husband Ian (Corbett) and with a sulky daughter (Kampouris) in addition to her ever-present family. Lurchingly formulaic and stuffed with more story than it can handle, it has its moments but it can hardly hope to meet the success of the original film.

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

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.

The Witch

The Witch

  • Directed by: Robert Eggers
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Kate Dickie, Ralph Ineson

A Puritan family in 17th century New England is threatened by dark forces when their baby son is stolen from their isolated farm. Gripping, dread-filled debut feature from Eggers; Dickie is superb as a mother on the edge, Taylor-Joy gives a pitch-perfect and dedicated performance as the eldest daughter and it's nerve-shredding, exquisitely crafted cinema.

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.

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.
