An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 38min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bonni Cohen, Jon Shenk
  • Cast: Al Gore, Barack Obama, Donald J. Trump

Eleven years after the original film, this is a fly-on-the-wall portrait of the Big Daddy of global environmentalism going about his work. Gore comes across as a charming and savvy negotiator, funny, empathetic and passionate. An inspiring call to people to exercise their power.

The Big Sick

The Big Sick
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Showalter
  • Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano

Culture clash comedy written by real life couple Emily V Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani. It plays out with charming, sometimes toe-curling honesty and an acknowledgement of how complicated life can get when expectations weigh heavy and tradition unceremoniously intervenes.

Cars 3

Cars 3
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • U
  • Directed by: Brian Fee
  • Cast: Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Owen Wilson, Kerry Washington

Lightning (Wilson) is challenged by new car on the block, Jackson Storm (Hammer). The least interesting Pixar franchise rumbles on in a rudimentary cash-grab which is basically a training montage in search of a story, and Randy Newman’s score can’t save it from being a dull lunge for the finish line.

Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me 3
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • 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.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

The Emoji Movie

The Emoji Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 26min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tony Leondis
  • Cast: T. J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, Steven Wright, Jennifer Coolidge, Jake T. Austin, Christina Aguilera, Sofia Vergara, Patrick Stewart

Gene (Miller) is a ‘meh’ emoji living in Textopolis who can’t help displaying mixed emotions. Targeted for deletion, he goes on the run with perky Hi-5 (Corden) and hacker Jailbreak (Faris). A combination of product placement, ingratiating voice work and barrel-scraping studio desperation, it’s a witless and blandly generic journey of self-discovery.

Land of Mine

Land of Mine
  • 2015
  • Denmark/Germany
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Martin Zandvliet
  • Cast: Roland Møller, Louis Hofmann, Joel Basman

At the end of WW2, veteran Danish army sergeant Carl Rasmussen (Møller) is placed in charge of a group of teenage German POWs who he puts to work defusing and removing 45,000 landmines. Intelligent, poignant, Oscar-nominated drama about the dehumanising effect of war, carried by an ebullient, heartfelt performance from Møller.

Ratatouille

Ratatouille
  • 2007
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • U
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Patton Oswalt, Lou Romano, Ian Holm, Janeane Garofalo, Peter O'Toole, Brian Dennehy, Peter Sohn, Brad Garrett, Will Arnett

The Pixar masterpiece follows Remy the rat (voiced by Oswalt) as he chases his dream of becoming a gourmet chef. This is Pixar at its best, offering audiences both three dimensional images and storytelling with its thoughtful consideration of the relationship between the creative process and friendship. Yet Bird's colourful production never stints on fast, furious fun, with plenty of sight gags and chases through the streets, waterways, sewers and dinner tables of Paris.

Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain
  • 1950

  • 1h 42min
  • U
  • Directed by: Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen
  • Written by: Betty Comden, Adolph Green
  • Cast: Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Jean Hagen, Millard Mitchell

Hollywood undergoes the transition from the silent era to the talkies and reputations rise and fall. Absolutely wonderful musical entertainment, with the slickest of snappy dialogue, enduringly catchy numbers, a cast of genuine charisma, and an engaging picture of the industry in transition into the bargain. Quite splendid.
