Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant
  • 2017
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Written by: Michael Green
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Demián Bichir, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez

The spaceship Covenant ends up on an unknown planet littered with little egg things, which can’t be good. The latest in the franchise is basically an excuse for Scott’s fantastic visuals and a series of more or less ingenious variations on grisly death, although some will enjoy the spectacle of Fassbender kissing himself.

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.

A Dog's Purpose

A Dog's Purpose
  • 2017
  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström
  • Cast: Josh Gad, Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton

A wild puppy named Toby (Gad) is euthanised and reborn as a farm dog in the 60s, and then dies only to come back as a police dog, which then takes a bullet…and so on. Painfully manipulative cornball drama with laboured slapstick, romantic clichés and heavy-handed lessons, a high-cholesterol dog’s dinner.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 137 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Gunn
  • Written by: James Gunn
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Kurt Russell

The gang are back, with a rollicking plot involving stolen batteries and Ego (Russell) who may or may not be the long-lost dad of Peter Quill (Pratt). It’s very CGI-heavy, sometimes tiringly so, but the humour still charms and the finale picks it up after a sluggish second act.

Jawbone

Jawbone
  • 2017
  • 91 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Thomas Q Napper
  • Cast: Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane

Jimmy (Harris) is a former junior amateur boxing champion who’s battling alcoholism as he deals with the death of his beloved mother and his return to the ring. Harris’s committed performance can’t compete with the likes of McShane or Winstone in smaller roles, and it’s a slight and stereotypical story, but authentic and lovingly made if not wholly successful.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword
  • 2017
  • United Kingdom
  • 126 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Annabelle Wallis, Hermione Corfield

Arthur (Hunnam) is the ‘bastard son of a prostitute’, or so he thinks; then he discovers his power when he draws the sword Excalibur from its resting place. Brash, bold and noisy retelling of the myth, with armed elephants, lots of shouting and too much reliance on CGI trickery.

Mindhorn

Mindhorn
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 89 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sean Foley
  • Written by: Julian Barratt, Simon Farnaby
  • Cast: Essie Davis, Julian Barratt, Richard McCabe, Alex Wyndham, Alannah Olivia

Washed-up actor Richard Thorncroft (Barratt) was the star of an 80s British TV series in which he was an MI5 agent with an optical lie detector who could ‘see the truth’; in the present day, a serial killer case draws him in. Endearingly silly comedy with a fully committed performance from Barratt; fans of Partridge and Garth Marenghi will appreciate it.

Miss Sloane

Miss Sloane
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 132 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Madden
  • Cast: Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Elizabeth Sloane (Chastain) is a ruthless Washington lobbyist who is persuaded to work for a lobbying company aiming to make stronger gun control laws. Breakneck, nicely vicious dialogue and a whirldwind performance from Chastain are the best reasons to watch an otherwise above-average political thriller.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg
  • Cast: Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom

Captain Jack (Depp) and friends are on a mission to obtain the trident of Poseidon before ghoulish Captain Salazar (Bardem) can get his hands on it. A partial return to form for the franchise, with Bardem vigorous as Jack’s nemesis and a winning performance from Scodelario as an astronomer. It’s all too crowded but it manages to stay afloat.
