Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tom McGrath
  • Written by: Marla Frazee/Michael McCullers
  • Cast: Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi

The Boss Baby (Baldwin) is a tot with the mannerisms of a ruthless corporate tycoon, who upsets seven-year-old Tim (Bakshi). The frantic visual style and crude slapstick overwrite the charm of the original story by Marla Frazee, and there’s not much for audiences to take to their hearts.

Fast & Furious 8

Fast and Furious 8
  • 2017
  • US
  • 136 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: F. Gary Gray
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron, Scott Eastwood, Helen Mirren

Cyber-terrorist Cypher (Theron) pits rogue racer Dom (Diesel) against his fellow petrolheads, including wife Letty (Rodriguez). Baffling and inconsequential story aside, it’s all shamelessly about car-based action, and although human doorstop Diesel isn’t up to the story’s limited emotional demands, Johnson and Statham make up for it with some grade-A squabbling.

Going in Style

Going in Style
  • 2017
  • 96 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zach Braff
  • Cast: Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Alan Arkin

A slick, amiable if somewhat safe cover version of an unjustly neglected 1979 comedy, this time starring Oscar-winners Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin as poverty-stricken old-timers who decide to take their revenge on a banking system.

Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island
  • 2017
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
  • Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, John C. Reilly

In 1973 a team of scientists goes to explore a recently discovered island with its own ecosystem, which turns out to include a 100-foot-tall ape which can punch helicopters out of the sky. Kong himself is impressive, if his fellow beasts are less so, and a great cast and able direction make this a monstrously entertaining actioner.

Smurfs: The Lost Village

Smurfs: The Lost Village
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kelly Asbury
  • Written by: Stacey Harman/Pamela Ribon
  • Cast: Demi Lovato, Ariel Winter, Julia Roberts, Joe Manganiello

Smurfette (Lovato) and her friends go on a quest to help her find her place in the village, and the result is a series of chases, a few under-cooked girl-power nods and a lot of sappiness. Undemanding kids might have a good time; adults will have to grin and smurf it.
