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.

  • 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.

Bolshoi Ballet
  • 2013

This revival of Yuri Grigorovich's acclaimed 1978 production features outstanding choreography, sumptuous costumes and some of the composer's most lyrical music.

The Boy Next Door
  • 2015
  • US

  • 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.

Ex Machina
  • 2015
  • UK/US
  • 108 min

  • Directed by: Alex Garland
  • Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Alicia Vikander

Ambitious young coder Caleb (Gleeson) wins a competition to take part in a research experiment at the hmoe of his CEO (Isaac) – where he meets the experiment itself, robot Ava (Vikander). The ensuing battle of the sexes is played out through dramatic, witty and provocative discussion, making for smart, accessible and relevant sci-fi.

Focus

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.

Jupiter Ascending

Jupiter Ascending
  • 2015
  • UK/US/Australia
  • 12A
  • 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

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.

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.

Project Almanac
  • 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.

Royal Shakespeare Company Live: Love's Labour's Won

Royal Shakespeare Company Live: Love's Labour's Won
  • 2015

Royal Shakespeare Company: Love's Labour's Lost

Royal Shakespeare Company: Love Labours Lost
  • 2014
  • UK

Shakespeare's comedy about a king trying to avoid womanly wiles, transposed to 1914.

Mon 2 Mar

RSC: Love's Labour's Lost

Summer 1914. In order to dedicate themselves to a life of study, the King and his friends take an oath to avoid the company of women for three years. No sooner have they made their pledge than the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, presenting them with a severe test of resolve. Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy delights in championing and then unravelling an unrealistic vow, mischievously suggesting that the study of the opposite sex is in fact the highest of all academic endeavours. Only at the end of the play is the merriment curtailed as the lovers agree to submit to a period apart, unaware that the world around them is about to be utterly transformed by the war to end all wars.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 122 min
  • 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.

Selma
  • 2014
  • US
  • 128 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ava DuVernay
  • Cast: David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tim Roth, Tom Wilkinson

The story of the 1965 civil rights marches from Selma to Montgomery, with Martin Luther King (Oyelowo) facing a nervous President Johnson (Wilkinson) and Alabama's racist Governor Wallace (Roth). Among a stellar cast Oyelowo is exceptional, and DuVernay and Webb capture both the greatness and the limitations of King's achievements. Essential.

Shaun the Sheep Movie
  • 2015
  • UK

  • 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.

The Theory of Everything
  • 2014
  • US/UK
  • 123 min

  • 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.

  • 2015

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.
