Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant
  • 2017
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Written by: Michael Green
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Demián Bichir, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez

The spaceship Covenant ends up on an unknown planet littered with little egg things, which can’t be good. The latest in the franchise is basically an excuse for Scott’s fantastic visuals and a series of more or less ingenious variations on grisly death, although some will enjoy the spectacle of Fassbender kissing himself.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul
  • 2017
  • US
  • 91 min
  • U
  • Directed by: David Bowers
  • Cast: Alicia Silverstone, Tom Everett Scott, Alexa Blair Robertson, Jason Drucker, Charlie Wright

Greg (Drucker) and Rodrick (Wright) go on a two-day road trip with their family in order to attend a birthday party. The fourth film in the sequence completely recasts the main characters (the previous ones having become too old) and despite likeable performances it’s only moderately amusing.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 137 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Gunn
  • Written by: James Gunn
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Kurt Russell

The gang are back, with a rollicking plot involving stolen batteries and Ego (Russell) who may or may not be the long-lost dad of Peter Quill (Pratt). It’s very CGI-heavy, sometimes tiringly so, but the humour still charms and the finale picks it up after a sluggish second act.

Harmonium

Harmonium
  • 2016
  • 118 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Kôji Fukada
  • Written by: Kôji Fukada
  • Cast: Mariko Tsutsui, Tadanobu Asano, Kanji Furutachi

Akie (Tsutsui) and Toshio (Furutachi)’s marriage is disrupted when Yasaka (Asano), an old acquaintance of Toshio, enters their lives. Noirish Japanese thriller with an attention-grabbing narrative structure; it drags a little in the second segment, but with top-notch performances it’s a riveting exploration of virtue, vengeance and moral flaws.

The Hippopotamus

The Hippopotamus
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 89 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Jencks
  • Cast: Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, Russell Tovey, Emily Berrington

Ted Wallace (Allam) is a failed poet and bitter crtic who is asked by an old friend to investigate miracle cures on a country estate. A half-hearted mixture of Poirot-like sleuthing, Wodehouse-styloe hijinks and slapstick, only partially redeemed by Allam’s ebullient performance as the withering Ted.

The LEGO Batman Movie

The Lego Batman Movie
  • 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.

The Other Side of Hope

The Other Side of Hope
  • 2017
  • Finland/Germany
  • 98 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Aki Kaurismäki
  • Cast: Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kousmanen, Ville Virtanen, Kati Outinen

Syrian asylum-seeker Khaled (Haji) meets travelling salesman-turned-restaurateur Wikström (Kuosmanen), and after an awkward start, a beautiful friendship is born. Kaurismaki is back and at the top of his game, with a melancholy, gorgeous-looking, sometimes screamingly funny exploration of the kindness of strangers. How we’ve missed him.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg
  • Cast: Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom

Captain Jack (Depp) and friends are on a mission to obtain the trident of Poseidon before ghoulish Captain Salazar (Bardem) can get his hands on it. A partial return to form for the franchise, with Bardem vigorous as Jack’s nemesis and a winning performance from Scodelario as an astronomer. It’s all too crowded but it manages to stay afloat.

  • 2016

  • 80 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michaël Dudok de Wit
  • Cast: Emmanuel Garijo, Barbara Baretta, Tom Hudson (voices)

A man washes up on a desert island; when he tries to build a raft, it’s destroyed by a mysterious red turtle. Breathtaking début feature by Dutch writer, director and animator, a stunning, life-affirming tale of man’s relationship with nature, entirely worthy of the Ghibli name (the studio co-produced it).
