Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
  • 2016
  • US
  • 151 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg

Superman (Cavill) faces off against Batman (Affleck) in the aftermath of the near-destruction of Metropolis at the end of Man of Steel. Despite a pretty strong screenplay, the two leads are no more than functional and Wonder Woman (Gadot) is a damp squib. But if the film lacks Marvel's sense of fun, in its fidgety and fearful way it feels entirely relevant.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
  • 2016
  • 94 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Kirk Jones
  • Written by: Nia Vardalos
  • Cast: Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Michael Constantine

Fourteen years on, Toula (Vardalos) is back, still married to husband Ian (Corbett) and with a sulky daughter (Kampouris) in addition to her ever-present family. Lurchingly formulaic and stuffed with more story than it can handle, it has its moments but it can hardly hope to meet the success of the original film.

Our Little Sister

Our Little Sister
  • 2015
  • Japan
  • 128 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Hirokazu Koreeda
  • Cast: Haruka Ayase, Masami Nagasawa, Kaho, Suzu Hirose

Three sisters in their 20s live together by the sea in the house they grew up in, but at their estranged father's funeral they take in their 13 year old half-sister Suzu (Hirose). Understated, quietly powerful and charming drama about sisterhood, adapted from Akimi Yoshida's manga Umimachi Diary.

Ran

Ran
  • 1985
  • Japan/France
  • 162 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Akira Kurosawa
  • Written by: Akira Kurosawa, Hideo Oguni, Masato Ide
  • Cast: Tatsuya Nakadai, Mieko Harada

Kurosawa's 'King Lear' is a bleak and despairing vision of mankind torn apart by disunity, personal vengeances and family feuds that produce no honour, no victors, just victims. An accomplished fusion of Japanese history and blood-drenched Shakespearean drama, this film grows more impressive with repeated viewings.
