Another Mother's Son

Another Mother's Son
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 103 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Menaul
  • Cast: Jenny Seagrove, Julian Kostov, Ronan Keating, John Hannah, Amanda Abbington

Louisa Gold (Seagrove) is a widowed Jersey shopkeeper with two sons fighting in WW2 when the Channel Islands are occupied by the Germans; she takes in an escaped Russian POW (Kostov). The look and atmosphere of 40s Jersey is well caught, but the story is predictable and it feels like a tame TV drama.

Ballerina

Ballerina
  • 2016
  • France / Canada
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Summer / Éric Warin
  • Cast: Voices of Dane DeHaan, Elle Fanning, Maddie Ziegler

Orphaned Félicie (Fanning) strives to reach her dream of performing ballet at the Grand Opera House, with the help of mentor Odette (Jepsen). A ballet version of The Karate Kid, it looks nice but the soundtrack is a mish-mash and the story is formulaic and lacks comic zing.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Written by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford

Chris (Kaluuya) heads to upstate New York with his girlfriend Rose (Williams), for a dinner with her supposedly liberal parents (Whitford and Keener), only to find that things are very much other than they seem. Peele’s deep understanding of horror movies tropes combines with his own experiences as a black American, to make a sharp, taut and precisely crafted reflection on racial tensions in America.

Hidden Figures
  • 2016
  • US
  • 127 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Theodore Melfi
  • Cast: Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe

The true story of the African-American women who provided NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch its first successful space missions, despite institutionalised segregation in the workplace. The leads are wonderful and it’s an inspiring story about collective triumph.

Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
  • Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, John C. Reilly

In 1973 a team of scientists goes to explore a recently discovered island with its own ecosystem, which turns out to include a 100-foot-tall ape which can punch helicopters out of the sky. Kong himself is impressive, if his fellow beasts are less so, and a great cast and able direction make this a monstrously entertaining actioner.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris McKay
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes

Batman (Arnett) is such a self-absorbed loner that even the Joker (Galifianakis) is peeved that Bats won’t recognise him as his greatest enemy, so the villain constructs a dastardly plot that incorporates every villain he can find, including the Daleks. Packed with gags and inventiveness, it’s tremendous fun.

  • USA
  • 103 min

  • Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
  • Written by: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick
  • Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds

A Mars mission docks with the ISS bearing a single-celled alien organism, which then bursts out of containment. Derivative sci-fi drama which feels like a blend / rip-off of Alien and Gravity; you spend most of it wondering who’ll die next. Reasonably effective but inessential.

Logan

  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant

Grey-haired, boozy and ailing, Logan (Jackman) is caring for the now elderly Charles Xavier (Stewart) when he encounters a young mutant girl, Laura (Keen). A glorious swansong for Wolverine; the world-weary tone, low-key setting and ballsy climax really impress. First class.

Moana

Moana
  • 2016

  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing lack of a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

  • Spain/UK/US
  • 108 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Lewis MacDougall, Liam Neeson

Twelve year old Conor (MacDougall) has a mother (Jones) who's battling cancer and a father (Kebbell) who's walked out; then a yew-tree-shaped monster with Neeson's voice comes into his life. Coming-of-age tearjerker with a sometimes thin story, but fine performances from Jones and MacDougall.

  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris

The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and Monáe. Terrific.

  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt

During a 120-year space journey to a new planet, Jim (Pratt) wakes up early from hibernation, and faced with the prospect of living entirely alone, he wakes up Aurora (Lawrence). Despite sleek and inventive visuals, it's a predictable love story that turns out to be an empty vessel.

More 90s nostalgia: teenagers (Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler) who have been chosen to protect the world from aliens do it by morphing into superheroes and piloting giant robots.

Koala impresario Buster Moon (McConaughey) decides to save his ailing theatre with a singing competition. Most of the humour comes from cute critters singing occasionally inappropriate songs; the plot is spread far too thin and there no real surprises, but it ticks the usual boxes.

Kevin (McAvoy) suffers from dissociative identity disorder; when he kidnaps three teenage girls, best pals Marcia (Sula) and Claire (Richardson) and troubled loner Casey (Taylor-Joy), multi-personality strangeness ensues. With superb work from McAvoy and Taylor-Joy, this is easily Shyamalan's most compelling and intelligent movie in years.

Troublemaker Jyn Erso (Jones) and Rebel intelligence officer Cassian Andor (Luna) lead a rag crew across the galaxy to make contact with Death Star chief engineer Galen (Mikkelsen), Jyn's dad. This is Star Wars from the trenches, with sensational battle scenes and great performances from Jones and Luna.

  • UK / India
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gurinder Chadha
  • Cast: Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Hugh Bonneville, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi

Lord Louis Mountbatten (Bonneville) is to oversee Britain’s withdrawal from India and the ensuing partition, but he and his wife Edwina (Anderson) witness the violence erupting through the country. A below-stairs romance between Dayal and Qureshi is frustratingly insipid and the Indian characters are all unforgivably poorly drawn. Despite some good acting, timid and inert.
