All Eyez on Me

All Eyez on Me
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Benny Boom
  • Cast: Demetrius Shipp Jr, Danai Gurira, Kat Graham

Biopic of Tupac Shakur (Shipp Jr), which entirely fails to illuminate the life story of the hip-hop legend. Every time it threatens to get thought-provoking, it jumps to the next scene; the concert scenes are mostly tepid, the dialogue is platitudinous and the whole thing lacks flair, energy and rhythm.

Baby Driver

Baby Driver
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 113 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Edgar Wright
  • Written by: Edgar Wright
  • Cast: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx

Baby (Elgort) is an Atlanta getaway driver, forced by his boss Doc (Spacey) into doing one last heist. Exuberant crime caper full of stonking music; the story is hardly original, but Wright’s snappy dialogue and zesty direction reinvigorates the genre clichés, and the stars revel in it. Great fun.

The Book of Henry

The Book of Henry
  • 2017
  • US
  • 105 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
  • Cast: Jaeden Lieberher, Naomi Watts, Jacob Tremblay, Dean Norris

Susan (Watts) is an unconventional mother whose genius son Henry (Lieberher) comes up with a plan to save his schoolfriend Christina (Ziegler) from her abusive father (Norris). A manipulative mid-point twist turns the schmaltz up to eleven in a deranged tearjerker which is both unbearably twee and strangely fascinating.

Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me 3
  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews, Jenny Slate, Pierre Coffin

Gru (Carell) and new wife and fellow agent Lucy (Wiig) are ensconced with their adorable adopted daughters when supervillain Balthazar Bratt (Parker) decides to take revenge on Hollywood for neglecting him. It’s all a bit familiar but it skilfully balances kid and adult appeal with its madcap approach and embarrassment of mischievous energy.

Frantz
  • 2016
  • France
  • 113 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: François Ozon
  • Cast: Pierre Niney, Paula Beer, Ernst Stötzner

In a small German town after WW1, Anna (Beer) mourns her fiancé Frantz who was killed, when she meets Frenchman Adrien (Niney), who claims to have been his friend. Touching, mournful and beautifully crafted tale, with a fine performance from Beer as just one of the many impressive elements.

  • Directed by: Marc Webb
  • Cast: Chris Evans, Mckenna Grace, Lindsay Duncan

Frank (Evans) has been looking after his mathematically gifted niece Mary (Grace) ever since his sister committed suicide, but then his mother stakes a claim on the girl. Movie-of-the-week stuff about one man’s journey for personal redemption, emotionally overwrought and schmaltzy.

Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice
  • 2005
  • UK
  • 127 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Joe Wright
  • Written by: Deborah Moggach
  • Cast: Keira Knightley, Matthew Macfadyen, Brenda Blethyn, Donald Sutherland, Tom Hollander, Rosamund Pike, Jena Malone, Judi Dench

In this solid and likeable new version of Austen's timeless novel, director Wright and screenwriter Deborah Moggach cut the source material down to size allowing time for the secondary tales to develop while never losing sight of the all pervading romance between Darcy and Elizabeth. Like the novel, it makes for a tale full of plot twists and emotional turbulence without ever acquiring the mannered subtlety of Ang Lee's 'Sense and Sensibility'.

Ratcatcher

Ratcatcher
  • 1999
  • UK
  • 93 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Lynne Ramsay
  • Written by: Lynne Ramsay
  • Cast: Tommy Flanagan, William Eadie

Seen through the eyes of 12-year-old James Gillespie, a sensitive boy haunted by the drowning of a neighbour's son, 'Ratcatcher' paints a bleakly realistic picture of Glasgow family life. Ramsay uses meticulous framing, unusual camera angles and atmospheric images to capture the subtle textures of everyday life, as well as complex inner feelings.

  • France
  • U
  • Directed by: Céline Sciamma
  • Written by: Céline Sciamma
  • Cast: Zoé Héran, Malonn Lévana, Jeanne Disson, Sophie Cattani, Mathieu Demy

Something like a pre-pubescent cousin of The Virgin Suicides, this quietly beautiful film centres on a little girl who introduces herself to the children of her new neighbourhood as a boy. Powered by an incredibly convincing performance by 10-year-old Héran, it sets a carefree tone that contrasts with the high stakes of emerging identity.

Transformers 5: The Last Knight

Transformers 5: The Last Knight
  • 2017
  • US
  • 148 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Michael Bay
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins

It turns out that the Transformers shape human history, as Oxford lecturer Viviane (Haddock), butch inventor Cade (Wahlberg) and an English Earl (Hopkins) charge about from action sequence to action sequence. Wahlberg and Haddock have zero chemistry and it’s a deadening pile-up of CGI carnage, grating quips and joyless pummelling.

Wonder Woman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 133 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Patty Jenkins
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright

Diana (Gadot) is a princess of the Amazons, who rescues WW1 pilot / secret agent interest Steve (Pine) and resolves to end the war. Stylish and exciting, with a top cast, touches of real humour and tragedy, and spiffing action sequences, anchored by a strong and highly likeable performance from Gadot.
