Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto

Blade Runner K (Gosling) is tasked with finding replicants who are passing themselves off as human, but then he makes an earth-shattering, game-changing discovery. Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel to Scott’s original is beautiful, powerful and relevant; Gosling is exceptional, and Ford steals the show as the ageing but still gruff and quick-witted Deckard. A triumph.

Geostorm

Geostorm
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Dean Devlin
  • Written by: Dean Devlin, Paul Guyot
  • Cast: Abbie Cornish, Gerard Butler, Mare Winningham

Satellite architect and space cowboy Jake (Butler) has designed a device to protect our planet from climate change, but it’s sabotaged. Ridiculous melodrama of cheesy CGI punctuated by cheesy soap opera histrionics, with untold millions dying in eco-catastrophes until the US saves the day. Windy nonsense.

Jigsaw
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 31min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Michael Spierig/Peter Spierig
  • Cast: Matt Passmore, Tobin Bell, Callum Keith Rennie

Bodies start appearing in public places, bearing signature of serial killer Jigsaw, and Detective Halloran (Rennie) tries to figure out what’s going on. The traps aren’t all that inventive this time round but hardcore fans of the Saw franchise should be delighted, even if this reboot won’t tempt the unconvinced.

Justice League

Justice League Part One
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa

A team of superheroes forms to fight an alien invasion led by chief baddie Steppenwolf (Hinds). As so often, the villain is less interesting than the heroes, being a soulless CGI creation, but Affleck and Gadot are growing into their roles and it’s a lot better than the lumbering Batman vs Superman.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 2h 21min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
  • Written by: Jane Goldman, Matthew Vaughn
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong

After the Kingsman HQ is destroyed, street kid-turned-superspy Eggsy (Egerton) and gadget man Merlin (Strong) team up with their US equivalents to defeat drug baroness Poppy (Moore). Vaughan and Goldman turn up the preposterous comic book shenanigans at the expense of charm and basic plausibility, but fans will like it.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

The LEGO Ninjago Movie
  • 2017
  • US / Denmark
  • 1h 41min
  • U
  • Directed by: Charlie Bean/Paul Fisher/Bob Logan
  • Cast: Dave Franco, Olivia Munn, Justin Theroux, Jackie Chan

Lloyd (Franco) is the son of evil Lord Garmadon (Theroux), who wants to conquer Ninjago; however, Lloyd is also one of the team of ninja dedicated to combatting Garmadon and his minions. Not the most inspired of the LEGO movies but bright, brash and amusing, with intricate action, lots of slapstick fun and a delightful sequence of a cat destroying a city.

Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 54min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley

Murder in the dead of night, a carriage of suspects trapped in an avalanche, and the world’s greatest detective is on hand to solve it. Against the odds, Branagh pulls off a stylish, first-class, surprisingly poignant retelling with fluid camerawork and a top cast, and has a fine old time as the arrogant, outrageously moustachioed Poirot.

Only the Brave

Only the Brave
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 13min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joseph Kosinski
  • Cast: Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, Jennifer Connelly

Eric Marsh (Brolin) is the leader of a team of Arizona firefighters called the Granite Mountain Hotshots, who are called in to battle the Yarnell Hill Fire of 2013. Simplistic drama based on a true story but with some impressive action sequences and a gripping enough tribute to the heroism of first responders.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs
  • 1991
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Jonathan Demme
  • Cast: Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Lawrence A Bonney

Following a series of horrific serial murders, imprisoned psycho-killer Hopkins is released to help Foster and Glenn's FBI agents track down the culprit. Adapted from a novel by Thomas Manhunter Harris, Demme's film version is a subtle but scary suspense shocker, with two excellent performances and great narrative drive.

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarök
  • 2017

  • 2h 10min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Taika Waititi
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins

Thor (Hemsworth) reunites with his duplicitous brother Loki (Hiddleston) to battle Hela, Goddess of Death (Blanchett). Director Taika Waititi averts narrative pomposity in favour of charm, comedy and gargantuan spectacle, while Hemsworth sends himself up with skill and confidence. An askew, irreverent and wonderfully idiotic addition to the MCU.
