Absolutely Anything

Absolutely Anything
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 85 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Terry Jones
  • Cast: Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, Robin Williams, Terry Jones, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin

A council of aliens (Cleese, Idle, Palin, Gilliam, Jones) mean to destroy Earth, but first have to bestow absolute power on one Earthling, in this case singleton teacher Neil (Pegg). Tragically laugh-free effort by the director of Life of Brian; surely this knob gag of a film can't be the last Python movie collaboration.

The Age of Adaline

The Age of Adaline
  • 2015
  • US
  • 110 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lee Toland Krieger
  • Cast: Blake Lively, Harrison Ford, Michiel Huisman

After a freak accident in 1937, wealthy and beautiful 29-year-old Adaline (Lively) stops aging; every decade she has to move on in order to keep her secret, until she falls in love. Smooth, tasteful look at immortality; Lively is a bit lacking in star power, but Ford and Burstyn give wonderfully nuanced performances.

American Ultra

American Ultra
  • 2015
  • US
  • 95 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nima Nourizadeh
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Uma Thurman

Mike (Eisenberg) is a West Virginia stoner about to pop the question to girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart) when he's attacked by two men and discovers assassin skills he didn't know he had. Energetic action comedy with a witty and surprisingly sweet screenplay; Stewart and Eisenberg are great.

Amy

Amy
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia

Documentary on Amy Winehouse, charting her career from her early days to superstar status and subsequent fall. Kapadai creates an incredibly intimate look at the singer, with clips of her lighter side underlining the gravity of her loss. Punchy, provocative and just plain sad.

The Bad Education Movie
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Elliot Hegarty
  • Cast: Jack Whitehall, Mathew Horne, Sarah Solemani, Harry Enfield

In this big-screen adaptation of the sitcom, disastrous teacher Alfie Wickers (Whitehall) takes his suspiciously small class on a school trip to Cornwall. A confusing and offensive mess, likely to appeal only to Whitehall completists interested in seeing prosthetic recreations of his balls on multiple occasions.

Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four
  • 2015
  • US
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Josh Trank
  • Cast: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell

This adaptation of the classic comic book delivers yet another story about how a team of superheroes develop their freakish abilities, but it's humourless, drab and filled with self-important speeches about saving the world. Tim Story's 2005 and 2007 Fantastic Four films may have set the bar low, but Trank barely clears it.

Gemma Bovery

Gemma Bovery
  • 2014
  • France/UK
  • 99 min

  • Directed by: Anne Fontaine
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Fabrice Luchini, Jason Flemyng

When the Boverys, an English couple, move to a Normandy village, scandal soon threatens to happen. Pleasantly witty adaptation of Posy Simmonds' graphic novel, with a great performance from Arterton in the title role and fine work from the strong supporting cast.

Hitman: Agent 47

Hitman: Agent 47
  • 2015
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Aleksander Bach
  • Cast: Rupert Friend, Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto

Katia (Ware) is the estranged daughter of a scientist (Hinds) who's credited with the creation of genetically engineered assassins, and now she's being hunted by one, Agent 47 (Friend). Derivative reboot of an already forgettable franchise; Friend is efficient, but Ware lacks authority, the story makes no sense and it's generally charmless, mindless and cursory.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 94 min

  • Directed by: Pete Docter
  • Cast: Kaitlyn Dias, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith

Riley (Dias) is an 11 year old girl whose family is moving from Minnesota to San Francisco; her troubled mind is represented as a factory hub commanded by Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Sadness (Smith), Disgust (Kaling) and Anger (Black). Delightful, poignant and hysterically funny coming-of-age story from Pixar.

Jurassic World
  • 2015
  • US
  • 124 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson

Dino-geek Gray (Simpkins) visits Jurassic Park with brother Zach (Robinson); the park's manager, their aunt Claire (Howard), is less than attentive until a new creation runs amok and raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) steps in. Despite a merely functional screenplay, it has enough scares, scale, ideas and variety to keep everyone entertained.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Hugh Grant

This stylish rendition of the 60s spy series suffers from a vague and clunky script, but is somewhat redeemed by the skilful casting of Cavill and Hammer. Grant has enormous fun as the shadowy controller Waverly, and there's one incredible set piece you don't want to miss.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 104 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
  • Cast: Olivia Cooke, Nick Offerman, Jon Bernthal

Greg (Mann) is a Pittsburgh teenager who makes terrible films with his friend Earl (Cyler); then he finds out that his former childhood pal Rachel (Cooke) has terminal cancer. Twee, manipulative and self-conscious, it's as if Wes Anderson and John Hughes collaborated on a weepy, and you'll either love it or want to punch it.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 91 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin
  • Written by: Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock

Prequel to the Despicable Me films, in which the pill-shaped, dungaree-sporting critters attach themselves to villain Scarlett Overkill (Bullock) and go to London to steal the Crown Jewels. The minions are as cute as ever but they seem funnier in support, and Bullock's character is one-dimensional.

  • Cast: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg

Ethan (Cruise) and the gang are on the trail of the nefarious Syndicate when their unit is dissolved by the CIA. With jaw-dropping action, ingenious gadgets and a striking performance from Ferguson as the mysterious Ilsa, this is a a slick, accomplished and hugely entertaining slice of mayhem.

  • Directed by: Jake Schreier

  • Cast: Cara Delevingne, Nat Wolff, Cara Buono

Q (Wolff) and friends go on a trip to find Q's childhood friend and ultimate crush Margo (Delevingne), who has disappeared. This adaptation of John Green's novel tries to pick apart the cliché of the manic pixie dream girl but a fantastic supporting cast and indie pop soundtrack aren't enough to save it.

When aliens challenge Earth to a series of giant video game contests, disgruntled middle-aged gamer Sam (Sandler) is called on by former childhood friend Will (James), now US President, to step up. Lazy, self-satisfied exercise in 80s nostalgia, with honourable mentions for Gad, Cox and Dinklage in a scene-stealing turn as an arrogant Donkey Kong expert.

  • Cast: Shannyn Sossamon, James Ransone, Nicholas King

A young mother and her son move into a house haunted by a monster with a posse of snuff-film-addicted ghost children, which works out about as well as you'd expect. Lacklustre sequel which gives far too much screen time to its monster and which is less scary than irritating.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
  • 2015

  • 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.

Straight Outta Compton
  • 2015
  • US

  • Cast: Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, O'Shea Jackson Jr

Biopic of rap group NWA, focusing on the recording of their debut album, their subsequent fallings-out and eventual disintegration. Mitchell is excellent as Eazy-E and despite some second-half problem, it's punchy, provocative and packed with attitude, worthy of comparison with the similarly themed Boyz n the Hood and 8 Mile.

Journalist Amy (Schumer) is assigned by her editor (Swinton) to write a feature on sports doctor Aaron (Hader); she sleeps with him, then is boggled when he asks for a second date. The drama is sometimes forced, but Schumer's wit, honesty and edginess make her a standout protagonist, and the men too are refreshingly well-written.

The Transporter Refueled

The Transporter Refueled
  • 2015
  • France
  • Directed by: Camille Delamarre
  • Written by: Bill Collage, Adam Cooper
  • Cast: Ed Skrein

Anna (Chabanol) recruits driver Frank (Skrein) as part of a plot to get revenge on her vicious employer. This leaden, rampantly misogynistic and unpleasantly exploitative reboot shows that the undeniable presence of 'the Stath' was about all this franchise had to recommend it; without him, it's blunt, offensive and pointless.

Rusty Griswold (Helms), the now-grown son of the repeatedly-vacationing Griswold clan, is determined to show his family a good time. Broad but refreshing reboot of the franchise, with plenty of solid laughs, especially from Applegate as Rusty's wife Debbie, although there's too much reliance on crude language.

Cole (Efron) is an aspiring DJ from the San Fernando Valley, looking for inspiration in all the wrong places. Despite a corny narrative and some odd directorial decisions, it's a charmingly sincere exploration of youthful possibilities with a discernible and growing ambiance of discontent.
