Enchanted

Enchanted
  • 2007
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Kevin Lima
  • Written by: Bill Kelly
  • Cast: Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel, Rachel Covey, Susan Sarandon

Two fairytale characters struggle to find each other and make it in the 'real' world in this mix of live and animated action (à la Who Framed Roger Rabbit). Enchanted is one of the nastiest, most insidious children's films adults will have the displeasure of seeing this year. Chock full of pseudo-Christian ideas, Waspish imperialism, product placement and celebrations of consumer culture this is about as evil as Disney gets. Leave your critical faculties, reason and humanity at the door.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ai Weiwei
  • Cast: Israa Abboud, Hiba Abed, Rami Abu Sondos

Ambitious documentary about the global refugee crisis,, made with 25 crews criss-crossing the globe. Ai’s empathy for the displaced comes through and although it’s a little unwieldy at times, it’s full of poetic images and fascinating on-the-ground footage.

It's A Wonderful Life
  • 1946
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

Loving Vincent

Loving Vincent
  • 2017
  • UK / Poland
  • 1h 35min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Dorota Kobiela/Hugh Welchman
  • Cast: Douglas Booth, Jerome Flynn, Robert Gulaczyk

Armand Roulin (Booth) tries to find out what happened to the late artist Vincent can Gogh (Gulaczyk). Live action footage was hand-painted over to give a van Gogh-like effect, and the result is visually intoxicating, adding up more than the novelty of its sumptuous parts.

  • 1992
  • US
  • 1h 25min
  • U

  • Cast: Michael Caine, Steven Mackintosh, Muppet Performers:, Dave Goelz, Jerry Nelson, Frank Oz, David Rudman, Steve Whitmire

It's Christmas time, and nasty old miser Scrooge (Caine) needs to be taught a lesson by three seasonal ghosts. Colourful version of Dickens' classic tale that will please the kids and keep the adults smiling with its little irreverent spices.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

The Singing Ringing Tree

The Singing Ringing Tree
  • 1957
  • East Germany
  • 1h 14min
  • U
  • Directed by: Francesco Stefani
  • Written by: Anne Geelhaar
  • Cast: Christel Bodenstein, Charles Hans Vogt, Eckart Dux

A prince attempts to win the heart of a spoilt princess by finding the singing, ringing tree. Notoriously creepy East German fairy tale.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran

Rey (Ridley) meets Luke (Hamill) to learn all about the Force. Johnson expands on the casualties-of-war theme, making magnificent, roaring action sequences and leading the viewer through a blood-stained moral labyrinth. Driver returns with a vengeance, Dern is terrific and it hits the sweet spot between nostalgia and gripping storytelling.

Stronger

Stronger
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Gordon Green
  • Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson

Jeff Bauman (Gyllenhaal) is waiting for on-off girlfriend Erin (Maslany) at the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013 when a bomb goes off, resulting in the amputation of his legs. Biographical drama with fine work from Gyllenhaal and Maslany and from Richardson as Jeff’s mother, although it becomes crowdpleasing and conventional.
