A Cure for Wellness

A Cure for Wellness
  • 2017
  • US
  • 146 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Gore Verbinski
  • Cast: Dane DeHaan, Mia Goth, Jason Isaacs, Celia Imrie

Lockhart (DeHaan) is an arrogant young executive sent to a wellness centre in the Swiss Alps to retrieve his CEO, but something isn’t right with the place. Verbinski’s psychological chiller is overly long, and takes a final turn for the ridiculous, but along the way it explores childhood trauma and has some startling, nightmarish imagery.

Fences

Fences
  • 2016
  • US
  • 139 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Denzel Washington
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Stephen Henderson

Troy ( Washington) is a proud, tight-fisted, ageing working stiff in 50s Pittsburgh, full of bitterness that God, poverty and segregation ruined his youthful dreams of sporting success. Beautifully shot family drama, superbly acted (especially by Washington and Davis), but it suffers a bit from heavy self-importance and a long running time.

Fifty Shades Darker

Fifty Shades Darker
  • 2017
  • US
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan

No surprises here: Anastasia (Johnson) gets sweet-talked back into the red room by Christian (Dornan). Foley seems to be under orders to skip the actual sex, as the real money shots are of Christian’s wardrobe. Johnson manages to be likeable and human, but otherwise it’s high on production values and short on story.

The Great Wall

The Great Wall
  • 2017
  • China / US
  • 103 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zhang Yimou
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe

Two tough, rascally fighting men (Damon and Pascal, who was Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones) travel to China, get captured, are beguiled by a warrior princess (Jing) and besieged by beasties. Director Zhang is going for full-on blockbuster: plot and character are less important than spectacular action, Damon is likeable, and it's all spiffing hooey.

Hidden Figures
  • 2016
  • US
  • 127 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Theodore Melfi
  • Cast: Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe

The true story of the African-American women who provided NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch its first successful space missions, despite institutionalised segregation in the workplace. The leads are wonderful and it’s an inspiring story about collective triumph.

John Wick: Chapter 2

John Wick 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 122 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Chad Stahelski
  • Cast: Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose

John Wick (Reeves) is back, dealing with the global assassins’ network and handing out ass-kickings to all that stand in his way. The original was lean and focused but this stretches over two hours, and the guy was tired of this life prior to part one; maybe it’s time to give him a break.

La La Land
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

The Lego Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris McKay
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes

Batman (Arnett) is such a self-absorbed loner that even the Joker (Galifianakis) is peeved that Bats won’t recognise him as his greatest enemy, so the villain constructs a dastardly plot that incorporates every villain he can find, including the Daleks. Packed with gags and inventiveness, it’s tremendous fun.

  • Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman

The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.

  • Directed by: Kenneth Lonergan
  • Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol

Lee (Affleck) is a carefree small-town guy who, when his brother dies, is given the job of raising his nephew (Hedges). A masterful blend of high drama, quirky characterisations and incidental detail, with a soulful, heartbreaking turn by Affleck at its core.

Moonlight
  • 2016

  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris

The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and Monáe. Terrific.

  • Directed by: Peter Berg
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Monaghan, JK Simmons

Tommy Saunders (Wahlberg) is a Boston cop who’s standing at the Boston marathon finishing line when bombs start going off. A visceral and respectful take on the incident, never shying from the horror of the attack but placing the emphasis firmly on humanity, hope and bravery.

  • Directed by: Garth Jennings
  • Written by: Garth Jennings
  • Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Tori Kelly, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Scarlett Johansson

Koala impresario Buster Moon (McConaughey) decides to save his ailing theatre with a singing competition. Most of the humour comes from cute critters singing occasionally inappropriate songs; the plot is spread far too thin and there no real surprises, but it ticks the usual boxes.

  • Cast: James McAvoy, Jessica Sula, Haley Lu Richardson, Anya Taylor-Joy

Kevin (McAvoy) suffers from dissociative identity disorder; when he kidnaps three teenage girls, best pals Marcia (Sula) and Claire (Richardson) and troubled loner Casey (Taylor-Joy), multi-personality strangeness ensues. With superb work from McAvoy and Taylor-Joy, this is easily Shyamalan's most compelling and intelligent movie in years.

  • UK
  • 117 min

  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, James Cosmo, Shirley Henderson, Irvine Welsh

Renton (McGregor) returns to Edinburgh from Amsterdam, two decades on. Hodge's blood-pumping script builds on the original with characters that are older, sadder and definitely not wiser, and resentment and guilt festering like an open sore; but is it Archie-Gemmill-scoring-against Holland good? Yes, it is.
