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.

The Big Short

The Big Short
  • 2015
  • US
  • 22/01/2016
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam McKay
  • Written by: Michael Lewis, Adam McKay, Charles Randolph
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Karen Gillan, Brad Pitt

In the middle of the biggest property boom in American history, a group of financial experts bets that it's all about to collapse. A righteous, angry call to arms dolled up with satirical absurdity, irony, montage, knowing cinematic and pop culture references, snappy dialogue and smoking hot performances from an astonishing cast.

A Bigger Splash

A Bigger Splash
  • 2016
  • Italy, France
  • 120 min
  • Directed by: Luca Guadagnino
  • Cast: Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts

Rock star Marianne (Swinton) is recovering from a throat operation with her lover Paul (Schoenaerts) when they're visited by Marianne's flamboyant former lover Harry (Fiennes) and his seductive daughter (Johnson). This exuberant and refreshing remake of 1969's La Piscine has far more interesting female characters than the original, and although the cast has ample chemistry, Fiennes is the true scene-stealer.

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.

Chemsex

Chemsex
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 80 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: William Fairman/Max Gogarty

Documentary about the increasing popularity amongst gay men of using libido-enhancing drugs during sexual encounters, which has been seen as a significant factor in the rise of HIV diagnoses in London. Hard-hitting and frequently uncomfortable to watch, but its central message is urgent.

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.

Güeros

Güeros
  • 2015
  • Mexico
  • 106 min
  • Directed by: Alonso Ruizpalacios
  • Written by: Alonso Ruizpalacios, Gibrán Portela
  • Cast: Tenoch Huerta, Sebastián Aguirre, Ilse Salas

Mexican teenager Tomás (Aguirre) persuades his student brother Fede (Huerta) and a friend (Ortizgris) to join him on a quest to find legendary folk singer (Charpener). Inventive, micro-budge road movie that evokes the irreverent spirit of the French nouvelle vague; overlong and rambling, but sincere, romantic and filled with deadpan humour.

The Revenant
  • 2016

  • Directed by: Alejandro González Iñárritu
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Poulter

Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is a fur trapper and frontiersman who, after being attacked by a bear, is left for dead by colleage John Fitzgerald (Hardy). An audacious, immersive and highly accomplished tale of how true grit can overcome pure hell, with excellent performances, especially from DiCaprio.

  • 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.
