Bad Santa 2

Bad Santa 2
  • 2016
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mark Waters
  • Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Tony Cox, Brett Kelly, Kathy Bates, Christina Hendricks

Willie (Thornton) has slid back to rock bottom when his estranged accomplice Marcus (Cox) returns with the promise of a big payday. The first film was foul-mouthed, politically incorrect, lewd and rude, but also bracing and very funny. This is just bludgeoning, misanthropic and depressing and should never have been made.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston

Newt Scamander (Redmayne), a socially-challenged animal whisperer of sorts, has to gather up the fantastic beasts which have escaped from his briefcase and are roaming 1920s New York. A suitably magical spin-off, with Rowling's screenplay skilfully balancing dark and light, and director Yates maintaining a thrilling pace and exciting spectacle.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Written by: Jane Goldman (screenplay), Ransom Riggs (novel)
  • Cast: Asa Butterfield, Eva Green, Ella Purnell, Chris O'Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, Judi Dench, Samuel L. Jackson

Teenager Jake (Butterfield), traumatised by the death of his grandfather (Stamp), goes to visit the titular home, where his grandfather grew up, run by eccentric Miss Peregrine (Green). Green is fun and memorable, so it's a pity that boring Jake is the main character and that the film is a whole is so disappointing and formulaic.

Moana

Moana
  • 2016
  • US
  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk

Moana (Carvalho) is a Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and doesn't bother with a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

Sully

Sully
  • 2016
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney

The story of pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger (Hanks), who became an unassuming hero in 2009 after successfully ditching a US Airways Airbus 320 on the Hudson River. Eckhart gives strong support as co-pilot Jeff Skiles but the film belongs to Hanks, whose understated performance, with the skilful re-enactments of the crash, make for riveting drama.
