Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass
  • 2016
  • US
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Mia Wasikowsksa, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen

Alice (Wasikowska) has to travel back in time to help the Mad Hatter (Depp), to the annoyance of Time (Baron Cohen). Nimble blockbuster with a good blend of mirth and melancholy, and director Bobin never lets the CGI swamp the story in the way Burton did in the first film.

The Angry Birds Movie

The Angry Birds Movie
  • 2016
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Clay Kaytis/Fergal Reilly
  • Written by: Jon Vitti
  • Cast: Peter Dinklage, Kate McKinnon, Jason Sudeikis

Red (Sudeikis), a notably angry bird, joins an anger management class and makes some friends, but then green pigs arrive in the neighbourhood. Amusing if delayed adaptation of the smartphone game, with plenty of gags and puns for accompanying adults.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book
  • 2016
  • US
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: Justin Marks (screenplay), Rudyard Kipling
  • Cast: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

Kung Fu Panda 3

Kung Fu Panda 3
  • 2016
  • US/China
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Alessandro Carloni
  • Cast: Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Lucy Liu, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan, David Cross, James Hong, Randall Duk Kim, Rebel Wilson, Bryan Cranston, JK Simmons

When Master Shifu (Hoffman) retires, Po (Black) is nonplussed to be promoted to teacher-trainer; then demon water buffalo Kai (Simmons) starts raising a zombie army and Po is reunited with his dad (Cranston)! Black is as lovable as ever, and with the excellent cast, frantic action, sight gags, cute baby pandas and stunning effects, it's a pity the script is a bit humdrum.

Money Monster

Money Monster
  • 2015
  • US
  • 99 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jodie Foster
  • Cast: Jack O'Connell, Julia Roberts, George Clooney

Lee Gates (Clooney) is a motormouth host of a financial advice show, directed by Patty (Roberts); then desperate Kyle (O'Connell) hijacks the show and forces Lee to wear a bomb vest. Earnest and moderately entertaining hostage thriller, but despite good performances and snappy editing it comes close to being The Big Short for Dummies.

Warcraft: The Beginning

Warcraft
  • 2016
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Duncan Jones
  • Cast: Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, Ben Schnetzer, Ruth Negga, Anna Galvin, Clancy Brown

Ordinarily we wouldn't expect much of a film adapted from a video game but this is directed by Duncan 'Moon' Jones. Whether the drama is strong enough to outweigh the abundant CGI remains to be seen.

X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse
  • 2016
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Written by: Michael Dougherty, Dan Harris, Simon Kinberg, Bryan Singer

Waking from a ten-year slumber, Apocalypse (Isaac) enlists Erik/Magneto (Fassbender) in his evil plans. Plenty of superficial excitement but a distinct lack of narrative ambition; with an extraordinary ensemble wasted in a franchise that's run dry of ideas.
