All This Panic

All This Panic
  • 2016
  • US
  • 79 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jenny Gage
  • Cast: Dusty Rose Ryan, Delia Cunningham, Lena M., Ginger Leigh Ryan

Documentary about a group of young women in and around New York City, filmed over three years. Director Gage gives them the freedom to tell their own stories, and they come across as smart and self-aware. An unfettered and honest view of the modern female experience.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

Get Out

Get Out
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Written by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford

Chris (Kaluuya) heads to upstate New York with his girlfriend Rose (Williams), for a dinner with her supposedly liberal parents (Whitford and Keener), only to find that things are very much other than they seem. Peele’s deep understanding of horror movies tropes combines with his own experiences as a black American, to make a sharp, taut and precisely crafted reflection on racial tensions in America.

The LEGO Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris McKay
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes

Batman (Arnett) is such a self-absorbed loner that even the Joker (Galifianakis) is peeved that Bats won’t recognise him as his greatest enemy, so the villain constructs a dastardly plot that incorporates every villain he can find, including the Daleks. Packed with gags and inventiveness, it’s tremendous fun.

Life

Life
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 103 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
  • Written by: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick
  • Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds

A Mars mission docks with the ISS bearing a single-celled alien organism, which then bursts out of containment. Derivative sci-fi drama which feels like a blend / rip-off of Alien and Gravity; you spend most of it wondering who’ll die next. Reasonably effective but inessential.

Logan

Logan
  • 2017
  • US
  • 137 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant

Grey-haired, boozy and ailing, Logan (Jackman) is caring for the now elderly Charles Xavier (Stewart) when he encounters a young mutant girl, Laura (Keen). A glorious swansong for Wolverine; the world-weary tone, low-key setting and ballsy climax really impress. First class.

The Lost City of Z

The Lost City of Z
  • 2016
  • US
  • 141 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson

The true story of the Amazonian expeditions of British army officer Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), which inspired Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Despite good work from Hunnam, Miller as Percy’s plucky wife and Pattinson as his loyal sidekick, it’s a languorous and sometimes confusing story which sometimes becomes The Lost City of Zzzzz.
