  • 2016-08-19
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jon Lucas, Scott Moore
  • Cast: Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Annie Mumolo, Jada Pinkett Smith, Christina Applegate

Soccer mom Amy (Kunis), thwarted by the controlling PTA, befriends repressed Kiki (Bell) and outrageous Carla (Hahn). Rude, crude and raucous but nevertheless rather pleasing feelgood froth, championing bad behaviour as a solution to social repression.

Ben-Hur

Ben-Hur
  • 2016
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Timur Bekmambetov
  • Cast: Jack Huston, Morgan Freeman, Toby Kebbell, Nazanin Boniadi

Judah Ben-Hur (Huston) is a wronged nobleman who does a lot of stuff but chiefly races in a chariot against adopted brother Messala (Kebbell). Forgettable and largely pointless remake of the 1959 classic, heavy on the action but light on plot, characterisation or entertainment.

The BFG

The BFG
  • 2016
  • US/UK
  • 117 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Written by: Roald Dahl (novel), Melissa Mathison (screenplay)
  • Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall

Eight year old Sophie (Barnhill) looks out her window one evening to discover something terrifying – the Big Friendly Giant (Rylance), who unlike his giant brothers doesn't actually want to eat her. Magical, funny and surprising stuff from Spielberg, lacking only some of the menace of Dahl's original, but genuinely heartwarming.

Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne
  • 2016
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Greengrass
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Julia Stiles

Jason Bourne (Damon) is back with a vengeance, literally this time, as information about the death of his father leads him to go up against CIA Director Dewey (Jones) and new nemesis Heather Lee (Vikander). Stonking action, high stakes, amazing chases, Damon is sensational: the perfect 'soft reboot'.

Bridget Jones's Baby
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sharon Maguire
  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey

Bridget (Zellweger) is back, and pregnant, either by handsome American Jack (Dempsey) or Mark (Firth), the ex she never got over. Cue babymaking shenanigans. Bridget's fretting about being a 'spinster' comes across as self-hatred, and the men don't deserve the poor treatment she gives them. Not cute, not charming; just awful.

  • 2016

  • Directed by: Noel Clarke
  • Written by: Noel Clarke
  • Cast: Noel Clarke, Ashley Thomas, Olivia Chenery

Sam (Clarke) is settled with a wife and baby, and is working two jobs to pay the bills, when his violent past comes back to, yes, haunt him. The final part of Clarke's trilogy has gripping momentum, some astute casting and a more mature attitude towards women, despite a silly honey trap narrative.

Deepwater Horizon

Deepwater Horizon
  • 2016
  • US
  • 108 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Berg
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich

The real-life tale of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, in which an oil rig explosion killed eleven men and caused the largest oil spill in American history. Berg touches on issues of corporate negligence and recklessness, but the real focus is on the courage of individuals such as Wahlberg's blue collar engineer. A solid nailbiter.

Rocky (Levy), Money (Zovatto) and Alex (Minnette) rob rich people's houses, but when they break into the house of a blind Iraq War veteran (Lang) they get more than they bargained for. Nerve-shredding home invasion thriller with great control of suspense, surprise and pace.

In the sequel to the much-loved Finding Nemo, annoyingly forgetful Dory goes on an adventure to find her family, crossing three oceans to get to them with Marlon and Nemo just a swish behind her.

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets

Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets
  • 2002
  • US/UK
  • 160 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Columbus
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

It's the boy-wizard's second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where evil forces have released a vicious serpent into the corridors. In line with JK Rowling's book, the second film is darker than the first. It's perhaps somewhat over-long, but the combination of old-fashioned kids' storytelling and blockbuster budget special effects make for something more pleasing than standard Hollywood eye candy.

Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban

Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban
  • 2004
  • US
  • 142 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Alfonso Cuarón
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

It is the summer before Harry's third year at Hogwarts, and he has heard that it is Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), a renegade wizard, is the Prisoner of Azkaban. What Harry doesn't suspect is that Black has escaped and is coming after him. Expectations are riding high for Harry Potter 3, with a new director in Cuarón (Y Tu Mamá También), and a darker, more complex book to adapt. There is enough dark humour, spectacular effects and appealing performances to keep you trapped in the franchise. But Harry's new adventure is also ponderous and overlong, regular Potter screenwriter Steven Kloves' confusing, rambling, structurally incoherent script, in which characters appear and disappear and plot turns are never realised, keeps the door firmly closed on this private club.

Hell or High Water
  • 2016

  • Directed by: David Mackenzie
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Gil Birmingham

Career criminal Tanner (Foster) and his taciturn brother Toby (Pine) rob banks across Texas, pursued by gruff Texas Ranger Marcus (Bridges) and his partner Alberto (Birmingham). A winning combination of Heat-style action, social commentary and character comedy, with a sensational cast and an aching heart.

  • 2016

  • Directed by: Taika Waititi
  • Cast: Sam Neill, Julian Dennison, Rhys Darby, Rima te Wiata

Urban malcontent Ricky (Dennison) reluctantly goes to the NZ countryside with foster aunt Bella (te Wiata) and her gruff husband Hec (Neill). When a tragic event prompts Ricky to run off, Hec goes after him, but the authorities assume that Hec's kidnapped Ricky. Simple, affecting comedy that builds into full-on action, with great chemistry between Neill and Dennison.

The Infiltrator
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 127 min

  • Directed by: Brad Furman
  • Cast: Bryan Cranston, John Leguizamo, Diane Kruger

Robert Mazur (Cranston) is a US Customs official who goes undercover to infiltrate the drug cartels and take down the notorious Pablo Escobar. Every cliché of the genre is present, from the resentful wife (Aubrey) to the impulsive assassinations, but Cranston is consistently sympathetic and Furman delivers the occasional sharp jab.

  • US
  • 102 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Travis Knight
  • Cast: Art Parkinson, Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, Brenda Vaccaro, George Takei

One-eyed origami expert Kubo (Parkinson) joins forces with no-nonsense Monkey (Theron) and goofy human/insect warrior Beetle (McConaughey) on a quest to defeat the Moon King (Fiennes). Breathtakingly beautiful stop-motion animation, maybe too scary for young kids, but with plenty of humour, fine voice performances and a story full of heart.

  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Peter Sarsgaard, Haley Bennett

Sam Chisolm (Washington) is a bounty hunter tasked with ridding Rosewater Creek of evil prospector Bogue (Sarsgaard) and his goons, so he recruits the titular seven-minus-one. Unsubtle remake of the 1960 original; the stunt work may have improved but it's all a bit empty

Frank (Rogen), a sausage, lives in a grocery store where he and his fellow foods excitedly look forward to life after being bought; but then he and hot-dog bun girlfriend Brenda (Wiig) learn the horrible truth. Rude, funny and unexpectedly profound, the best slice of adult animation since South Park.

Little Max (Louis CK) is a small dog who gets very lonely when his beloved human Katie (Kemper) leaves each day. But then she brings home a huge, shaggy rescue mutt (Stonestreet) and hijinks ensue. Undeniably derivative but cute and energetic comedy sustained by its fine voice cast.
