Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass
  • 2016
  • US
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Mia Wasikowsksa, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen

Alice (Wasikowska) has to travel back in time to help the Mad Hatter (Depp), to the annoyance of Time (Baron Cohen). Nimble blockbuster with a good blend of mirth and melancholy, and director Bobin never lets the CGI swamp the story in the way Burton did in the first film.

The Angry Birds Movie

The Angry Birds Movie
  • 2016
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Clay Kaytis/Fergal Reilly
  • Written by: Jon Vitti
  • Cast: Peter Dinklage, Kate McKinnon, Jason Sudeikis

Red (Sudeikis), a notably angry bird, joins an anger management class and makes some friends, but then green pigs arrive in the neighbourhood. Amusing if delayed adaptation of the smartphone game, with plenty of gags and puns for accompanying adults.

Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag
  • 2015
  • Spain
  • 94 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Enrique Gato
  • Cast: Dani Rovira, Michelle Jenner, Carme Calvell

When villainous energy magnate Richard Carson questions the validity of the original moon landing, the race is on for NASA to return to the moon and stop Carson rewriting history. Despite a promising theme, this lame CG adventure is lacking in laughs, ideas or charm and just about scrapes by on good intentions.

Henry V

Henry V
  • 1989
  • UK
  • 137 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Written by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Paul Scofield, Ian Holm, Emma Thompson, Alec McCowen, Judi Dench, Christian Bale

There are inevitable associations with Olivier in Branagh's choice of first feature, but he emerges with some credit as both director and performer. This is a much muddier version than its predecessor, both in the scrappy turmoil of the battle scenes and in the tempering of zesty jingoism with an appreciation of the human cost of conflict. Portraying the young king as a careworn, rather sullen warrior, the film seems to offer a more complex reading of the text.

Our Kind of Traitor

Our Kind of Traitor
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 108 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Susanna White
  • Written by: Hossein Amini (screenplay), John le Carré (novel)
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgård, Damian Lewis, Naomie Harris, Mark Gatiss

Middle-class couple Perry (McGregor) and Gail (Harris) are dining in a Marrakech restaurant when a wealthy Russian criminal (Skarsgård) invites himself into their lives. despite all the cover-ups and conspiracies, it works best as a study of Perry and Gail's frayed relationship. Solid rather than spectacular.

Sing Street

Sing Street
  • 2016
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: John Carney
  • Cast: Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Lucy Boynton, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Aidan Gillen

Fifteen-year-old Dubliner Cosmo (Walsh-Peelo) moves from a posh school to a terrifying inner city institution, where in order to deter bullies and attract aspiring model Raphina (Boynton), he starts a band. A little cloying, but overall a funny, cheering sweetly optimistic romance with wit, character and grit.

Space Jam

Space Jam
  • 1996
  • US
  • 87 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Joe Pytka
  • Written by: Leo Benvenuti, Steve Rudnick, Timothy Harris, Herschel Weingrod
  • Cast: Michael Jordan, Wayne Knight, Billy West, Dee Bradley Baker, Danny DeVito, Theresa Randle, Bill Murray

Nasty alien cartoons have captured Bugs Bunny and are going to enslave the Looney Tunes in their amusement park on Moron Mountain, but Bugs has the brainwave of challenging them to a basketball game and enlisting the talents of Michael Jordan for his team. Lacking the class of 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' and the pace of a real basketball game, 'Space Jam' should divert the kids on Saturday mornings, even though the jokes and effects are tired from over-use.

X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse
  • 2016
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Written by: Michael Dougherty, Dan Harris, Simon Kinberg, Bryan Singer

Waking from a ten-year slumber, Apocalypse (Isaac) enlists Erik/Magneto (Fassbender) in his evil plans. Plenty of superficial excitement but a distinct lack of narrative ambition; with an extraordinary ensemble wasted in a franchise that's run dry of ideas.
