Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
  • 2015
  • US
  • 86 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Walt Becker
  • Written by: Ross Bagdasarian, Janice Karman, Randi Mayem Singer
  • Cast: Jason Lee, Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Bella Thorne, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Tony Hale

The three squeaky-voiced vermin hit the road on a mission to stop their owner Dave (Lee) from proposing. A passing reference to John Waters' 1972 cult classic Pink Flamingos, which features an infamous excrement-eating scene, highlights the extent to which this film serves pretty much the same substance to the viewer.

Casablanca

Casablanca
  • 1942
  • US
  • 102 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Curtiz
  • Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid

You must remember this … Bogart being impossibly noble, Bergman torn between two lovers, Claude Rains playing both ends against the middle, devious Nazis, a fogbound airport, a piano-player tinkling that tune. A wonderful hill of beans.

Dad's Army

Dad's Army
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 60 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Oliver Parker
  • Written by: David Croft, Hamish McColl, Jimmy Perry
  • Cast: Toby Jones, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, Bill Paterson, Blake Harrison, Tom Courtenay, Daniel Mays, Catherine Zeta-Jones

The Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea find a German spy in their midst – don't panic, indeed. Faithful but strangely pointless recreation of the classic sitcom, in which fine actors like Jones, Nighy, Gambon etc only succeed in being inferior imitations of the originals. Like the characters themselves, brave but ultimately foolhardy.

The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur
  • 2015
  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Peter Sohn
  • Cast: Voices of Lucas Neff, John Lithgow, Frances McDormand, Neil Patrick Harris, Judy Greer, Bill Hader

Set in a world in which the cataclysmic asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs had actually missed Earth and let them roam in peace, it's the tale of young Arlo (Ochoa), an apatosaurus who gets separated from his family and who teams up with mutt-like human boy Spot (Bright.) Debut director Sohn doesn't quite lift it to Pixar's heights but his voice work steals the show in this likeable kids' adventure.

Goosebumps

Goosebumps
  • 2015
  • US
  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Letterman
  • Written by: Darren Lemke, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, R Stine
  • Cast: Jack Black, Amy Ryan, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush,

Teenager Zach (Minnette) develops a crush on his home-schooled neighbour Hannah (Rush), whose mysterious father (Black) keeps her locked up. This greatest-hits adaptation of RL Stine's horror stories unleashing a host of fan-favourite monsters instead of focusing on just one; it's pacey and enjoyable with Black on fine comic form, and the teen trio are likeable.

  • 2015

  • 128 min

  • Directed by: Tom McCarthy
  • Cast: Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton

McCarthy's tale of how the Boston Globe's investigation team unearthed cases of sexual abuse and cover-ups within the Catholic church is up there with All the President's Men, with a fine cast (Keaton, McAdams, Ruffalo, Tucci) serving a nuanced, complex script: no one, except the victims, is entirely blameless. Remarkable.
