Better Watch Out

Better Watch Out
  • 2017
  • Australia / US
  • 1h 29min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Chris Peckover
  • Cast: Olivia DeJonge, Levi Miller, Patrick Warburton, Virginia Madsen

Twelve-year-old Luke (Miller) is being babysat by 17-year-old Ashley (DeJonge), who he fancies his chances with, but then an intruder breaks into the house. The story proceeds through stabbings, paint-can experiments and torture, keeping you on the alert. Mischievous fun.

Brigsby Bear

Brigsby Bear
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 37min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Dave McCary
  • Cast: Kyle Mooney, Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes, Jane Adams, Mark Hamill

James (Mooney) was kidnapped as a boy by April (Adams) and Ted (Hamill) and was raised partly on a TV show that Ted made just for him, Brigsby Bear Adventures; as a man, James has to adjust to the real world. Weird and wonderful comedy drama which intelligently and sympathetically considers arrested development.

Daddy's Home 2

Daddy's Home 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, John Cena, John Lithgow, Mel Gibson

Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell) are now best of friends, but have to spend their holidays with their respective fathers (Lithgow and Gibson). A leaden-footed screenplay disgraces and humiliates everyone on screen, celebrating toxic masculinity and portraying women as either shrill party poopers or delinquent femme fatales. Worst film of the year.

The Disaster Artist

The Disaster Artist
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 38min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Franco
  • Cast: James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Hannibal Buress, Melanie Griffith, Sharon Stone, Jacki Weaver

The story behind the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, regarded by many as the worst movie ever made; Franco plays the hapless auteur with impressive mimicry and sincerity. A charming tale about friendship, reaching for your dreams and trying to make it in Hollywood.

Elf

Elf
  • 2003
  • US
  • 1h 36min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: David Berenbaum
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Bob Newhart, Ed Asner, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen

Buddy (Ferrell) is a big Elf who, though accepted in his Elvish community at the North Pole, manages to wreak havoc on a daily basis. Fed up and confused by his charge, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) sends him to the US in search of his true identity. Hilarious and puerile Yuletide comedy.

The Florida Project
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 55min

  • Directed by: Sean Baker
  • Cast: Willem Dafoe, Brooklynn Prince, Valeria Cotto

Moonee (Prince) is a six-year-old being raised by her trash-talking mom in a motel near Florida’s Disney World, where she and her pal Scooty (Riviera) terrorise guests at a neighbouring establishment. This low-key masterpiece is full of affection for its adorable urchins while not being blind to the occasional danger of their situation.

Justice League

Justice League
  • 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.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

The Man Who Invented Christmas
  • 2017
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bharat Nalluri
  • Cast: Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce, Simon Callow, Donald Sumpter, Miriam Margolyes, Morfydd Clark, Justin Edwards, Ian McNeice, Bill Paterson

Charles Dickens (Stevens), down on his luck, is in desperate need of a hit when Ebenezer Scrooge (Plummer) pops into his head and starts offering pointers. Decent if occasionally twee adaptation of Les Standiford’s non-fiction book, with Stevens being sympathetic and energetic and Plummer clearly relishing a chance to do Scrooge.

Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 54min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley

Murder in the dead of night, a carriage of suspects trapped in an avalanche, and the world’s greatest detective is on hand to solve it. Against the odds, Branagh pulls off a stylish, first-class, surprisingly poignant retelling with fluid camerawork and a top cast, and has a fine old time as the arrogant, outrageously moustachioed Poirot.

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.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran

Rey (Ridley) meets Luke (Hamill) to learn all about the Force. Johnson expands on the casualties-of-war theme, making magnificent, roaring action sequences and leading the viewer through a blood-stained moral labyrinth. Driver returns with a vengeance, Dern is terrific and it hits the sweet spot between nostalgia and gripping storytelling.

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.

  • Directed by: Stephen Chbosky
  • Cast: Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay, Owen Wilson

Auggie Pullman (Tremblay) has endured over 27 operations to correct his facial abnormalities and is at last going to school, to his parents’ concern. Chbosky manages to pluck your heartstrings without coating the story in sugar, thanks in part to the excellent work of Tremblay, Robert and Wilson.
