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.

The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tom McGrath
  • Written by: Marla Frazee/Michael McCullers
  • Cast: Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi

The Boss Baby (Baldwin) is a tot with the mannerisms of a ruthless corporate tycoon, who upsets seven-year-old Tim (Bakshi). The frantic visual style and crude slapstick overwrite the charm of the original story by Marla Frazee, and there’s not much for audiences to take to their hearts.

Don't Look Back

Don't Look Back
  • 1967
  • UK
  • 96 min
  • U
  • Directed by: DA Pennebaker
  • Written by: DA Pennebaker
  • Cast: Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Donovan

Dylan on tour in England in 1965, opening up to the camera and meeting up with the likes of Alan Price, Allen Ginsberg and a sycophantic Donovan. The songs – 'The Times They Are A-Changing', 'Subterranean Homesick Blues', etc – are excellent, and master documentarist Pennebaker has a good feel for the boredom of the road.

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.

The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden
  • 2016
  • Korea
  • 144 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Park Chan-Wook
  • Cast: Kim Tae-Ri, Kim Min-Hee, Ha Jung-Woo, Jo Jin-Woong

Thief Sook-Hee (Tae-ri) is hired to pose as a maid to wealthy heiress Hideko (Min-hee) as part of a con trick, but then maid and heiress discover mutual passion. This loose adaptation of Sarah Waters's Fingersmith is bravura filmmaking, but while the emotion between the two women is vibrant, an extended sex scene is exploitative, and the plot is too convoluted.

Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 89 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: William Oldroyd
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie

Katherine (Pugh) is a young bride shackled to a middle-aged man; when left alone in the grand manor house she begins an affair with a stable-hand (Jarvis) and it all goes downhill. Restrained, compulsively watchable debut feature with a chilling, droll performance from Pugh as the wicked but compelling Katherine.

The LEGO Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris McKay
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes

Batman (Arnett) is such a self-absorbed loner that even the Joker (Galifianakis) is peeved that Bats won’t recognise him as his greatest enemy, so the villain constructs a dastardly plot that incorporates every villain he can find, including the Daleks. Packed with gags and inventiveness, it’s tremendous fun.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road
  • 2015
  • US/Australia
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Miller
  • Written by: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nico Lathouris
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Reluctant hero Max (Hardy) is drawn into helping Imperator Furiosa (Theron, excellent), who's liberated a group of sexually enslaved women and is being pursued for her trouble by the grotesque Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Precision-executed lunacy, a brilliantly feminist 'western on wheels' with a generous helping of heart.

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.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 108 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ritesh Batra
  • Cast: Jim Broadbent, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer

Tony Webster (Broadbent) is a grumpy old git who’s on good terms with his ex wife (Walter); when he’s bequeathed the diary of an old friend, he is prompted to relive his schooldays. This adaptation of a Julian Barnes novel feels hokey and safe, although it has a nice cast and the scenes between Broadbent and Walter are among the few highlights.

Their Finest
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lone Scherfig
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy

London, 1940: fledgling screenwriter Catrin Cole (Arterton) joins the Ministry of Information’s Film Division and starts working on a propaganda movie. Scherfig wraps the war in a cosy cloak of nostalgia in a way that dulls moments of high anxiety, and despite a fine ensemble it’s all too muffled and mild-mannered.
