Daddy's Home 2

Daddy's Home 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, John Cena, John Lithgow, Mel Gibson

Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell) are now best of friends, but have to spend their holidays with their respective fathers (Lithgow and Gibson). A leaden-footed screenplay disgraces and humiliates everyone on screen, celebrating toxic masculinity and portraying women as either shrill party poopers or delinquent femme fatales. Worst film of the year.

Ferdinand

Ferdinand
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 46min
  • U
  • Directed by: Carlos Saldanha
  • Written by: Munro Leaf
  • Cast: Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Bobby Cannavale

Ferdinand (Cena) is a Spanish bull who prefers sniffing flowers to staring down bullfighters; shipped off to a farm, he has to escape both the slaughterhouse and the ring. Amiable animation which, although funny, is too overcrowded and unfocused to be really satisfying.

Home Alone

Home Alone
  • 1990
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Columbus
  • Written by: John Hughes
  • Cast: Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard, Catherine O'Hara

Peter and Kate McCallister (Heard and O'Hara) have an eight-year-old brat and wisely – albeit accidentally – leave him behind in Chicago when they go on holiday to Paris. Left to his own devices young Kevin (Culkin) has to deal with two bungling burglars (Pesci and Stern) who threaten to invade his peaceful haven. Jolly, if sadistic, scare-comedy antics produced by teen flick veteran John Hughes.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 12A

Justice League

Justice League
  • 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.

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.

Love Actually

Love Actually
  • 2003
  • UK/US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Richard Curtis
  • Written by: Richard Curtis
  • Cast: Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Keira Knightley, Martine McCutcheon, Bill Nighy, Rowan Atkinson

Curtis aims to prove the anodyne point that love is actually all around us with a huge cast and several different story strands. So we see Nighy, Thompson, Grant, Colin Firth, Martine McCutcheon, Liam Neeson, Alan Rickman, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln and Laura Linney all pop up to play out their roles. Lightweight and over-populated romantic comedy.

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.

My Little Pony: The Movie

My Little Pony: The Movie
  • 2017
  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jayson Thiessen
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber

The Friendship Festival of Canterlot is disrupted by ruthless unicorn Tempest Shadow (Blunt), so Twilight Sparkle (Strong) and pals must embark on a rescue mission. It manages to showcase the brand without sacrificing every last ounce of soul, and is cute, simple and surefooted enough for its target audience, if not for anyone else.

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.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran

Rey (Ridley) meets Luke (Hamill) to learn all about the Force. Johnson expands on the casualties-of-war theme, making magnificent, roaring action sequences and leading the viewer through a blood-stained moral labyrinth. Driver returns with a vengeance, Dern is terrific and it hits the sweet spot between nostalgia and gripping storytelling.

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarök
  • 2017
  • US
  • 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.

Wonder

Wonder
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Stephen Chbosky
  • Cast: Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay, Owen Wilson

Auggie Pullman (Tremblay) has endured over 27 operations to correct his facial abnormalities and is at last going to school, to his parents’ concern. Chbosky manages to pluck your heartstrings without coating the story in sugar, thanks in part to the excellent work of Tremblay, Robert and Wilson.
