Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant
  • 2017
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Written by: Michael Green
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Demián Bichir, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez

The spaceship Covenant ends up on an unknown planet littered with little egg things, which can’t be good. The latest in the franchise is basically an excuse for Scott’s fantastic visuals and a series of more or less ingenious variations on grisly death, although some will enjoy the spectacle of Fassbender kissing himself.

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.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul
  • 2017
  • US
  • 91 min
  • U
  • Directed by: David Bowers
  • Cast: Alicia Silverstone, Tom Everett Scott, Alexa Blair Robertson, Jason Drucker, Charlie Wright

Greg (Drucker) and Rodrick (Wright) go on a two-day road trip with their family in order to attend a birthday party. The fourth film in the sequence completely recasts the main characters (the previous ones having become too old) and despite likeable performances it’s only moderately amusing.

A Dog's Purpose

A Dog's Purpose
  • 2017
  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström
  • Cast: Josh Gad, Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton

A wild puppy named Toby (Gad) is euthanised and reborn as a farm dog in the 60s, and then dies only to come back as a police dog, which then takes a bullet…and so on. Painfully manipulative cornball drama with laboured slapstick, romantic clichés and heavy-handed lessons, a high-cholesterol dog’s dinner.

A Hologram for the King

A Hologram for the King
  • 2016
  • UK/France/German/US
  • 98 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Tom Tykwer
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Side Babette Knudsen, Ben Whishaw, Sarita Choudhury

Alan Clay (Hanks) is a washed-up American businessman trying to set up an IT deal with the Saudi King. Based on Dave Eggers's 2012 novel; although the female roles are underwritten, Hanks is on song as the central character in a quirky adult maturation story told with real panache and atmosphere.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day
  • 2016
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Garry Marshall
  • Cast: Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Julia Roberts, Jason Sudeikis, Britt Robertson, Timothy Olyphant, Héctor Elizondo, Jack Whitehall

Multiple-storyline dramedy set in Atlanta, Georgia, in which the various characters' family dilemmas are all resolved on the day in question. Or, to put it another way, an excruciating, crudely manipulative trainwreck of a movie, devoid of insight, genuine emotion or even laughs, which makes even a skilled comedienne like Aniston look hysterical and unsympathetic.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg
  • Cast: Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom

Captain Jack (Depp) and friends are on a mission to obtain the trident of Poseidon before ghoulish Captain Salazar (Bardem) can get his hands on it. A partial return to form for the franchise, with Bardem vigorous as Jack’s nemesis and a winning performance from Scodelario as an astronomer. It’s all too crowded but it manages to stay afloat.
