Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto

Blade Runner K (Gosling) is tasked with finding replicants who are passing themselves off as human, but then he makes an earth-shattering, game-changing discovery. Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel to Scott’s original is beautiful, powerful and relevant; Gosling is exceptional, and Ford steals the show as the ageing but still gruff and quick-witted Deckard. A triumph.

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Armando Iannucci
  • Cast: Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend

When Joseph Stalin abruptly dies in 1953, his subordinates immediately start jockeying for the position of his replacement. The political backstabbing makes for maximum black comedy and exuberant farce, and the deft interplay of a gifted cast makes the whole film a consistent joy.

Justice League

Justice League Part One
  • 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.

Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope
  • 2016
  • 1h 40min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Rupert Jones
  • Cast: Toby Jones, Anne Reid, Sinead Matthews, Deborah Findlay

Carl (Jones) is a soft-spoken gardener who’s recently got out of jail, but when he meets outgoing blonde Abby (Matthews) it becomes clear she has another motive for being with him. Narrative ingenious psychological thriller which toys with the audience’s perceptions; Jones gives an acutely judged performance.

The Mountain Between Us

The Mountain Between Us
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Hany Abu-Assad
  • Cast: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Beau Bridges

Alex (Winslet), a photojournalist, and Ben (Elba), a surgeon, are flying to Denver in a charter plane when their pilot suffers a midair stroke and their plane comes down. Despite thrilling real-life backdrops, Winslet and Elba's lack of chemistry hobbles the not very credible romance that develops between them, and you feel more attached to the dead pilot’s dog.

Only the Brave

Only the Brave
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 13min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joseph Kosinski
  • Cast: Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, Jennifer Connelly

Eric Marsh (Brolin) is the leader of a team of Arizona firefighters called the Granite Mountain Hotshots, who are called in to battle the Yarnell Hill Fire of 2013. Simplistic drama based on a true story but with some impressive action sequences and a gripping enough tribute to the heroism of first responders.

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.

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.
