Baby Driver

Baby Driver
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 1h 53min
  • 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 Beguiled

The Beguiled
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sofia Coppola
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning

John McBurney (Farrell) is a wounded Union deserter in the US Civil War who winds up in a school for girls, where headmistress Martha (Kidman) is persuaded to show him kindness. Coppola’s remake of Don Siegel’s sweaty 1971 original plays like meticulously crafted high-camp melodrama; intermittently enjoyable, but rushed and flustered.

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.

  • Directed by: Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen
  • Cast: Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Ann Miller, Betty Garrett

Three guys go out into the 'wonderful town' of New York, New York to see the sights, live the nightlife and wow the women. More cinematic and dance-orientated than other musicals, it's as big and brash as they come.

The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride
  • 1987

  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Reiner
  • Written by: William Goldman
  • Cast: Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, André the Giant, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Carol Kane

Princess Buttercup is chosen by the nasty Prince Humperdinck to be his bride but her heart belongs to the farm boy Westley. The princess' kidnapping prompts the return of Westley, now a pirate, and launches a series of swashbuckling adventures, after which true love can prevail. William Goldman's heavily ironic fairy tale is given a spirited treatment by the director of Stand By Me and an enthusiastic troupe.

Rock Dog

Rock Dog
  • 2017
  • 1h 20min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ash Brannon
  • Written by: Ash Brannon, Kurt Voelker
  • Cast: Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, J.K. Simmons

Bodi (Wilson) is a guard dog who takes up rock music, inspired by British pop star Angus Scattergood (Izzard). Weird and not very wonderful kids’ animation with weak jokes and few recognisable songs; it has a professional sheen but the script is a dog’s dinner.

The first collaboration between Sony and Marvel brings Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tom Holland is the third actor to play the web-slinger, delivering a performance that gives the character a new edge, helped along by Jon Watts' fine directing. A humorous and action-packed addition to the Spider-Man canon.
