Absolutely Anything

Absolutely Anything
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 85 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Terry Jones
  • Cast: Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, Robin Williams, Terry Jones, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin

A council of aliens (Cleese, Idle, Palin, Gilliam, Jones) mean to destroy Earth, but first have to bestow absolute power on one Earthling, in this case singleton teacher Neil (Pegg). Tragically laugh-free effort by the director of Life of Brian; surely this knob gag of a film can't be the last Python movie collaboration.

The Bad Education Movie

The Bad Education Movie
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Elliot Hegarty
  • Cast: Jack Whitehall, Mathew Horne, Sarah Solemani, Harry Enfield

In this big-screen adaptation of the sitcom, disastrous teacher Alfie Wickers (Whitehall) takes his suspiciously small class on a school trip to Cornwall. A confusing and offensive mess, likely to appeal only to Whitehall completists interested in seeing prosthetic recreations of his balls on multiple occasions.

Inside Out

Inside Out
  • 2015
  • US
  • 94 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pete Docter
  • Cast: Kaitlyn Dias, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith

Riley (Dias) is an 11 year old girl whose family is moving from Minnesota to San Francisco; her troubled mind is represented as a factory hub commanded by Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Sadness (Smith), Disgust (Kaling) and Anger (Black). Delightful, poignant and hysterically funny coming-of-age story from Pixar.

Minions

Minions
  • 2015
  • US
  • 91 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin
  • Written by: Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock

Prequel to the Despicable Me films, in which the pill-shaped, dungaree-sporting critters attach themselves to villain Scarlett Overkill (Bullock) and go to London to steal the Crown Jewels. The minions are as cute as ever but they seem funnier in support, and Bullock's character is one-dimensional.

Paper Towns

Paper Towns
  • 2015
  • US
  • 109 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Schreier
  • Written by: John Green, Scott Neustadter, Michael H Weber
  • Cast: Cara Delevingne, Nat Wolff, Cara Buono

Q (Wolff) and friends go on a trip to find Q's childhood friend and ultimate crush Margo (Delevingne), who has disappeared. This adaptation of John Green's novel tries to pick apart the cliché of the manic pixie dream girl but a fantastic supporting cast and indie pop soundtrack aren't enough to save it.

Pixels

Pixels
  • 2015
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Chris Columbus
  • Cast: Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Adam Sandler, Michelle Monaghan, Kevin James

When aliens challenge Earth to a series of giant video game contests, disgruntled middle-aged gamer Sam (Sandler) is called on by former childhood friend Will (James), now US President, to step up. Lazy, self-satisfied exercise in 80s nostalgia, with honourable mentions for Gad, Cox and Dinklage in a scene-stealing turn as an arrogant Donkey Kong expert.
