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.

Heat

Heat
  • 1995
  • US
  • 170 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Mann
  • Written by: Michael Mann
  • Cast: Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer

Mann's star package cops-and-robbers tale is head and shoulders above the rest of the genre, thanks to an action-packed screenplay that fully explores its themes and gives depth to its characters. Pacino is the dedicated detective whose home life is in ruins; De Niro is the reclusive criminal mastermind. The two men's finely balanced sense of honour and mutual respect is well dissected, and the shoot-out set pieces are heart-stopping. Brilliant.

Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon

Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon
  • 1998
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John Maybury
  • Cast: Derek Jacobi, Daniel Craig, Tilda Swinton.

By no means a documentary-style portrait of the artist, Love is the Devil is concerned with the destructive relationship between Bacon and his lover George Dyer. Far more visual and experimental than most of what passes for British cinema these days. Jacobi has an uncanny physical resemblance to Bacon, but the real acting revelation is Craig (Geordie in Our Friends in the North) who superbly gives life to this human tragedy waiting to happen.

My Life as a Courgette

My Life as a Courgette
  • 2016
  • Switzerland, France
  • 66 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Claude Barras
  • Cast: Gaspard Schlatter (voice), Sixtine Murat (voice), Paulin Jaccoud (voice)

Icare (Schlatter) is a nine year old boy who gets placed in an orphanage after the death of his alcoholic mother. Charming but profound stop-motion animated tale, skilfully adapted by Celine Sciamma (Girlhood) from Gilles Paris's novel; the kids' candid discussions about adult topics shows how much they have been through, yet it can be enjoyed by younger audiences.

Paddington

Paddington
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

The Red Turtle

The Red Turtle
  • 2016
  • France / Belgium / Japan
  • 80 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michaël Dudok de Wit
  • Cast: Emmanuel Garijo, Barbara Baretta, Tom Hudson (voices)

A man washes up on a desert island; when he tries to build a raft, it’s destroyed by a mysterious red turtle. Breathtaking début feature by Dutch writer, director and animator, a stunning, life-affirming tale of man’s relationship with nature, entirely worthy of the Ghibli name (the studio co-produced it).

Transformers 5: The Last Knight
  • 2017
  • US
  • 148 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Michael Bay
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins

It turns out that the Transformers shape human history, as Oxford lecturer Viviane (Haddock), butch inventor Cade (Wahlberg) and an English Earl (Hopkins) charge about from action sequence to action sequence. Wahlberg and Haddock have zero chemistry and it’s a deadening pile-up of CGI carnage, grating quips and joyless pummelling.

Whitney: Can I Be Me

Whitney: Can I Be Me
  • 2017
  • 105 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nick Broomfield/Rudi Dolezal
  • Written by: Nick Broomfield

Documentary about the life and death of singing sensation Whitney Houston, using a fairly traditional format of talking heads and archive footage. Broomfield and Dolezal trace her journey with sensitivity and assurance and if a few puzzle pieces are missing, there are some revealing interviews.

Wonder Woman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 133 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Patty Jenkins
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright

Diana (Gadot) is a princess of the Amazons, who rescues WW1 pilot / secret agent interest Steve (Pine) and resolves to end the war. Stylish and exciting, with a top cast, touches of real humour and tragedy, and spiffing action sequences, anchored by a strong and highly likeable performance from Gadot.
