When world leaders demand that the Avengers operate under UN supervision, the team splits. If you haven't seen previous instalments it will make no sense, but if you have, all the plot points bear bittersweet fruit, in a brilliant combination of hectic action and one liners with intimate, heartbreaking moments.

Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 110 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg

Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing. Streep throws herself endearingly into the role, Grant is wonderful as her debonair husband and Frears keeps a confident balance of uproarious laughs and genuine pathos.

Green Room

Green Room
  • 2016
  • US
  • 95 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Jeremy Saulnier
  • Cast: Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Patrick Stewart

When an earnest punk band plays a backwoods venue and witnesses the aftermath of a murder, they are menaced (and worse) by neo-Nazis led by the smart and respectable-seeming Darcy (Stewart). Saulnier directs with vigour, wit and flair, Yelchin and Poots are impressive and Stewart delivers understated evil; exhilarating and excruciating.

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book
  • 2016
  • US
  • 106 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: Justin Marks (screenplay), Rudyard Kipling
  • Cast: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

The Muppets

The Muppets
  • 2011
  • US
  • 103 min
  • U
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Written by: Jason Segel, Nicholas Stoller
  • Cast: Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones

When Muppet fans Gary (Segel), his girlfriend Mary (Adams) and brother Walter (a puppet) learn that oil millionaire Tex Richman (Cooper) plans to demolish the Muppet theatre, it's time to reunite the original cast. If the plot could be fresher, the well-chosen guest stars, self-referential humour and old-school bonhomie should raise a smile.
