  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia

Documentary on Amy Winehouse, charting her career from her early days to superstar status and subsequent fall. Kapadai creates an incredibly intimate look at the singer, with clips of her lighter side underlining the gravity of her loss. Punchy, provocative and just plain sad.

  • Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson

Dino-geek Gray (Simpkins) visits Jurassic Park with brother Zach (Robinson); the park's manager, their aunt Claire (Howard), is less than attentive until a new creation runs amok and raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) steps in. Despite a merely functional screenplay, it has enough scares, scale, ideas and variety to keep everyone entertained.

  • 2014
  • Finland/France
  • 80 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Xavier Picard, Hanna Hemilä
  • Cast: Russell Tovey, Nathaniel Parker, Tracy Ann Oberman, Stephanie Winiecki

The Moomins holiday in the South of France and fall in love with casino gambling and ritzy boutiques – all except for Moominmamma (Oberman), who heads for the beach. The elegant hand-drawn animation is a pleasure, although the casual pacing might not appeal to kids weaned on breathless action. A nostalgic treat.

Sherlock Holmes (McKellen) is 93 and living in with his stern housekeeper (Linney) and her son (Parker); the aged detective is still haunted by a case from 30 years before. McKellen is superb, Linney is on form and while the unhurried pace will frustrate some, if you like a meditative Holmes, this is for you.

In the Wild West, young Scottish nobleman Jay (Smit-McPhee) and his hired gun Silas (Fassbender) are on the trail of Rose (Pistorius), the object of Jay's affection. Witty, astonishingly accomplished debut by Maclean, even if it's too irreverent to be instantly iconic or truly heartbreaking.

The Third Man

The Third Man
  • 1949
  • US/UK
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Carol Reed
  • Cast: Joseph Cotton, Orson Welles.

Holly Martins has been invited to unstable, post-World War II Vienna by his old chum Lime, who is now in the grand-scale drug dealing business, only to discover that he is dead. Except, he isn't of course, and a multilayered cat and mouse scenario is triggered. So, what's so good about it? Well, you have a stirring zither score by Anton Karas, the ferris wheel and the 'cuckoo clock' speech yet possibly its greatest triumph is to cram so much wonder into so little time.
