Anna and the Apocalypse

Anna and the Apocalypse
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 32min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John McPhail
  • Cast: Ella Hunt, Malcolm Cumming, Marli Siu, Sarah Swire, Christopher Leveaux, Ben Wiggins

Motherless teen Anna (Hunt) and her lovesick bestie John (Cumming) are about to graduate from secondary school when they find themselves in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Polished, self-aware and pleasingly irreverent zombie musical, spattered with blood and sprinkled with glitter, a surefire Christmas crowdpleaser.

Arthur Christmas

Arthur Christmas
  • 2011
  • UK/US
  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: Sarah Smith
  • Written by: Peter Baynham, Sarah Smith
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton, Ashley Jensen, Ramona Marquez

Arthur Christmas (McAvoy) is the overlooked star of the Santa team, but when it looks like a small girl's present may not get delivered, he enlists the help of his curmudgeonly grandfather (Nighy). With characters boringly reflecting different degrees of niceness, this contrived family feud lacks the wit that made Aardman's name.

Die Hard

Die Hard
  • 1988
  • US
  • 2h 11min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John McTiernan
  • Cast: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Alexander Godunov

Willis plays a cop who attends a tower block Christmas party with his estranged spouse. The building is raided by terrorists, so it's left to Willis to bump off the baddies and save the hostages while the police and FBI languish ineptly on the sidelines. Unbearably tense actioner that gets good mileage out of yawning lift-shafts and flying bullets, while Willis is convincing as an ordinary guy trying to cope with it all. Watch out for Brit Rickman as a villain with a sense of humour.

It's A Wonderful Life

It's a Wonderful Life
  • 1946
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

  • 1992
  • US
  • 1h 25min
  • U
  • Directed by: Brian Henson
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Steven Mackintosh, Dave Goelz, Jerry Nelson, Frank Oz, David Rudman, Steve Whitmire

It's Christmas time, and nasty old miser Scrooge (Caine) needs to be taught a lesson by three seasonal ghosts. Colourful version of Dickens' classic tale that will please the kids and keep the adults smiling with its little irreverent spices.

Nae Pasaran

Nae Pasaran
  • 2018
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Felipe Bustos Sierra
  • Written by: Felipe Bustos Sierra
  • Cast: Bob Fulton, Robert Somerville, John Keenan, Stuart Barrie

A documentary examining how, during the Pinochet regime in the 70s, Chilean Hawker Hunter aircraft arrived in East Kilbride to be repaired, and Rolls-Royce workers, in protest against the regime, put the engines in indefinite cold storage. It’s limited in scope but it celebrates how an unassuming group of men won a small but important moral victory.

The Old Man and The Gun
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: David Lowery
  • Cast: Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Sissy Spacek

Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Redford), a career criminal and perpetual prison escapee, who’s being chased by Texas lawman John Hunt (Affleck). Redford says it’ll be his last film and it’s a fitting ending: playful, highly entertaining and made with great skill.

Shoplifters

Shoplifters
  • 2018
  • Japan
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Hirokazu Koreeda
  • Cast: Kirin Kiki, Lily Franky, Sakura Andô

A family in Tokyo lives by shoplifting, and then Osamu (Franky) and Shota (Kairi) bring home a little girl who seems to be homeless. The humanity of the performances and the loving attention to visual detail are of a piece in what’s ultimately a film about love.
