Bad Moms

Bad Moms
  • 2016

  • 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.

Bridget Jones's Baby

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.

Criminal
  • 2016

  • Directed by: Ariel Vromen
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Kevin Costner, Eric Bana, Tommy Lee Jones

CIA agent Bill Pope (Reynolds) is killed and his memories are transplanted into psycho criminal Jericho Stewart (Costner). Moronic and unpleasant, with appalling dialogue and one-dimensional characters; Gadot gives it her best shot but is overshadowed by Costner's monumental badness. An unmitigated disaster.

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.

Don't Breathe

  • Directed by: Fede Alvarez
  • Cast: Jane Levy, Daniel Zovatto, Dylan Minnette, Stephen Lang

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.

  • 2016
  • US

  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mahershala Ali

Newt Knight is a Mississippi farmer and Confederate soldier who rebels against the authorities and organises a group of escaped slaves into a militia. Based on a true story which feels considerably more interesting than the movie; Knight is too good to believe and the film's good intentions rarely spark.

  • Directed by: Mike Newell
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

Harry and his mates get busy at the inter-school of magic TriWizard Tournament, only to be faced with the return of evil mastermind Lord Voldemort (Fiennes). Overlong but entertaining enough adaptation of fourth Potter book directed with by Brit Newell.

The Infiltrator
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 127 min
  • 15
  • 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.

  • 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

  • Directed by: Dennis Gansel
  • Cast: Jason Statham, Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones, Michelle Yeoh, Sam Hazeldine

Five years on, Arthur Bishop (Statham) is living the quiet life in Rio when he's sucked back into the world of assassination. It's all rather silly and while Statham is fully committed, Hazeldine leaves little to the imagination and Alba is little more than a narrative device in a bikini.

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.

Urban Hymn

  • 2016
  • UK
  • 114 min
  • Directed by: Michael Caton-Jones
  • Cast: Letitia Wright, Isabella Laughland, Shirley Henderson

In the aftermath of the 2011 London riots, Jamie (Wright) is a troubled, talented orphan about to leave a care home, torn between loyalty to crack-smoking bestie Leanne (Laughland) and compassionate care worker Kate (Henderson). Heartwarming social realist drama with perfect performances from the leads; good to see Henderson given a substantial role instead of quirky support.
