The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – the Touring Years
  • 2016
  • US
  • 137 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, John Lennon

Engrossing and expertly constructed documentary about the Fab Four's rise to global fame, weaving concert, interview and home movie footage to show the band's journey from the Cavern Club to their final proper concert in San Francisco's Candlestick Park. There's nothing new or revelatory, but it's an undeniably glorious watch.

The BFG

The BFG
  • 2016
  • US/UK
  • 117 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Written by: Roald Dahl (novel), Melissa Mathison (screenplay)
  • Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall

Eight year old Sophie (Barnhill) looks out her window one evening to discover something terrifying – the Big Friendly Giant (Rylance), who unlike his giant brothers doesn't actually want to eat her. Magical, funny and surprising stuff from Spielberg, lacking only some of the menace of Dahl's original, but genuinely heartwarming.

Bridget Jones's Baby

Bridget Jones's Baby
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sharon Maguire
  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey

Bridget (Zellweger) is back, and pregnant, either by handsome American Jack (Dempsey) or Mark (Firth), the ex she never got over. Cue babymaking shenanigans. Bridget's fretting about being a 'spinster' comes across as self-hatred, and the men don't deserve the poor treatment she gives them. Not cute, not charming; just awful.

  • Directed by: Pablo Trapero
  • Cast: Guillermo Francella, Peter Lanzani, Lili Popovich

In early 80s Argentina, former intelligence agent Arquimedes (Francella) turns to kidnapping as a way of maintaining his family's lifestyle. Shocking true story of the Puccio family, with a brilliant performance from Francella; a richly rewarding tale of a fractured family.

Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing
  • 1987
  • US
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Emile Ardolino
  • Written by: Eleanor Bergstein
  • Cast: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes

The plot – in the summer of 1963 bad boy Johnny (Swayze) meets good girl Baby (Grey) and teaches her hip grinding, eventually winning the respect of her parents. Sure it's full of stereotyping, bad dialogue and a pre-teen sugar coated prurience, but decades on Dirty Dancing still has the ability to send a generation of women all gooey.

  • Directed by: Antoine Fuqua
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Peter Sarsgaard, Haley Bennett

Sam Chisolm (Washington) is a bounty hunter tasked with ridding Rosewater Creek of evil prospector Bogue (Sarsgaard) and his goons, so he recruits the titular seven-minus-one. Unsubtle remake of the 1960 original; the stunt work may have improved but it's all a bit empty

Supersonic

Supersonic
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 122 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mat Whitecross
  • Cast: Noel Gallagher, Liam Gallagher

The story of the Gallagher brothers and the band that made them famous, with plenty of eye-watering archive material from wobbly early rehearsals via life-changing first gigs to the 'biblical' 1996 Knebworth gigs, their career high point, which bookend the film. Richly sourced, with fresh voiceover interviews with both Gallaghers, it's highly watchable.
