Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • 2015
  • US
  • 141 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joss Whedon
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Samuel L. Jackson

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much emotional impact.

Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 105 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

Danny Collins

  • US
  • 106 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Dan Fogelman
  • Written by: Dan Fogelman
  • Cast: Melissa Benoist, Al Pacino, Christopher Plummer

Danny (Pacino) is an ageing rocker, still pumping out his old hits on tour, who receives a letter of advice written to him years earlier by John Lennon, but never sent, causing him to re-evaluate his life. Pacino is likeable as the shambolic, self-centred Danny.

  • Directed by: Tim Johnson
  • Cast: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

Oh (Parsons) is part of an alien race who've colonised Earth by decanting humans to amusement parks in Australia, but he's forced to team up with lost little girl Tip (Rihanna). A grating experience, thanks to a confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice.

A Little Chaos

A Little Chaos
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Alan Rickman
  • Cast: Kate Winslet, Helen McCrory, Stanley Tucci

Sabine (Winslet), a widowed landscape gardener in 1682 Paris, is commissioned to work on the gardens of Versailles, but her friendship with the head gardener (Schoenaerts) provokes the fury of his scheming wife (McCrory). Crowd-pleasing period drama; what it lacks in historical accuracy it makes up for with fine performances, an engaging story and strong direction from Rickman.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road
  • 2015
  • US/Australia
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Miller
  • Written by: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nico Lathouris
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Reluctant hero Max (Hardy) is drawn into helping Imperator Furiosa (Theron, excellent), who's liberated a group of sexually enslaved women and is being pursued for her trouble by the grotesque Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Precision-executed lunacy, a brilliantly feminist 'western on wheels' with a generous helping of heart.

  • UK/France
  • 88 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ben Palmer
  • Written by: Tess Morris
  • Cast: Lake Bell, Simon Pegg, Henry Lloyd-Hughes

Cynical thirtysomething journalist Nancy (Bell, nailing an English accent) accidentally steals someone else's blind date, Jack (Pegg) and ends up falling for him. Although it's poorly-plotted and sometimes crude, the very likeable Bell makes the dialogue crackle and Pegg is more engaging than he's been in a long time.

Monsters: Dark Continent

Monsters: Dark Continent
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Tom Green
  • Written by: Jay Basu
  • Cast: Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley, Joe Dempsie

Ten years after the events of 2010's Monsters, American soldiers are sent to the Middle East to control insurgent groups that have sprung up during the war against the aliens. A two-hour-plus, testosterone-fuelled barrage of guns, bombs and male posturing, with a story that exists merely to hold the explosions together, it's a massive disappointment.

Pitch Perfect 2

Pitch Perfect 2
  • 2015

  • Directed by: Elizabeth Banks
  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Adam DeVine, Kelley Jakle, Chrissie Fit, Hailee Steinfeld, Katey Sagal, Elizabeth Banks

After a catastrophic wardrobe malfunction at the White House, the Barden Bellas attempt to get their groove back in a Eurovision-like song contest. Despite highlights such as Lee's brilliantly weird performance as Lilly, the knowing charm of the original is diluted and Wilson's schtick, in particular, is starting to grate.

Poltergeist

Poltergeist

  • Directed by: Gil Kenan
  • Cast: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kennedi Clements

Eric (Rockwell) and Amy (DeWitt), three kids in tow, move into a new house in a typical American movie suburb, and strange things start happening. Likeable performances (including Harris as a TV ghostbuster) can't rescue this remake of the Spielberg/Hooper 1982 original from being not very terrifying or thrilling.

A Royal Night Out

A Royal Night Out
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 97 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Julian Jarrold
  • Written by: Trevor De Silva/Kevin Hood
  • Cast: Sarah Gadon, Emily Watson, Rupert Everett

Whimsical romance based on the true story of how, on VE Day 1945, the teenage princesses Elizabeth (Gadon) and Margaret (Powley) were allowed out of Buckingham Palace to celebrate with the crowds. Gadon is hugely likeable, Powley steals scenes, Everett is excellent as their father and it's tender, funny and occasionally raucous.

  • Directed by: Brad Peyton
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Alexandra Daddario, Carla Gugino, Colton Haynes, Morgan Griffin, Art Parkinson, Archie Panjabi, Todd Williams, Ioan Gruffudd, Will Yun Lee, Kylie Minogue, Paul Giamatti

An LA Search & Rescue pilot's ex-wife and her new man take his daughter to San Francisco. Meanwhile, in another part of the film, science guys are acting worried. Disaster movie! Johnson is great company, the supporting cast is fun and although the timing of the release is unfortunate, it's tremendously entertaining earthquake-based tosh.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
  • 2015
  • US

  • Directed by: Paul Tibbitt
  • Cast: Antonio Banderas, Clancy Brown, Tom Kenny

Life goes on at usual in Bikini Bottom until real-life pirate Burger-Beard (Banderas) causes apocalyptic mayhem; SpongeBob and arch-nemesis Plankton must team up to defeat him. Despite a lazy superhero plot twist in the final act, it has enough colourful characters and hilarious one-liners to keep both kids and adults entertained.

  • 2015
  • UK
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bharat Nalluri
  • Cast: Peter Firth, Kit Harington, Elyes Gabel, Jennifer Ehle

When MI5 bigwig Harry (Firth) apparently commits suicide, his rogue godson Will (Harington) is ensnared to find out the truth. The TV show's big-screen outing is very enjoyable but cinematically pedestrian, neither anywhere near the Bond/Bourne standard nor as grittily realistic as it thinks it is, but Firth and Harington play well together.

Spy
  • 2015
  • US

  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Jason Statham, Alison Janney, Jude Law

Susan (McCarthy) is a CIA office worker, the support to super-spy Bradley Fine (Law); when disaster strikes, Susan's withering boss Elaine (Janney) sends her into the field. Funny, exciting and genuinely ambitious spy spoof with an appealing performance from McCarthy, and Byrne exceptional as the arrogant villainess. Hugely likable.

  • Written by: Philip Shelby
  • Cast: Milla Jovovich, Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson

Kate (Jovovich) is a security hotshot who finds herself framed for murder and on the run, pursued by the authorities and a deadly assassin (Brosnan). Jovovich is an appealing lead, but a talented supporting cast is wasted on dull chases and a nonsensical plot, while Brosnan is just amusingly terrible.

  • Cast: George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie

Science-obsessed teenager Casey (Robertson) teams up with mysterious Athena (Cassidy) and child-genius-turned-grump Frank (Clooney) to unlock the secrets of a mysterious pin. Futuristic family adventure, refreshingly driven by two young women; Casey and Athena are inspiring heroes and the visuals are stunning.

  • Directed by: Levan Gabriadze
  • Written by: Nelson Greaves
  • Cast: Cal Barnes, Matthew Bohrer, Courtney Halverson

Six friends hanging out with each other on video chat become aware that they're the target of a mysterious hacker/stalker. A cleverly-done video-chat-turned-nightmare session which exhausts its concept well short of its modest 83-minute running time; it's hard to care about characters who are bullies and betrayers.
