The Accountant

The Accountant
  • 2016
  • US
  • 128 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Gavin O'Connor
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, JK Simmons

Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a high-functioning autistic accountant who's also a trained sniper and lethal martial arts fighter, who uncovers corporate skulduggery in his employers. Affleck's wry, low-key performance is actually a good fit and Kendrick is sweet and likeable as his fellow geek, but it's top-heavy with plot, back-story and flashbacks and just doesn't add up.

Allied

Allied
  • 2016
  • US
  • Directed by: Robert Zemeckis
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, Jared Harris

Max (Pitt) is a Canadian intelligence officer who parachutes into French Morocco in 1942 so that he can pose as the husband of Resistance agent Marianne (Cotillard). A clean-cut Casablanca wannabe with nice supporting turns, but while the stars look fantastic, they seem awkward and it never really comes to life.

Almost Christmas

Almost Christmas
  • 2016
  • US
  • 111 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David E Talbert
  • Cast: Danny Glover, Mo'Nique, Kimberly Elise, Omar Epps

Recently widowed Walter (Glover) presides over the homecoming of his four grown children, their precociously cutesy offspring and his outrageous sister-in-law (Mo'Nique). There are worse Christmas movies and the African-American ensemble cast is game and mostly engaging, but the dramatic elements are stretched and tedious, and it's routine stuff.

Arrival

Arrival
  • 2016
  • US
  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
  • Cast: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg, Tzi Ma, Mark O'Brien

When 12 granite pod-like spaceships land on Earth, linguistic expert Dr Louise Banks (Adams) is recruited to try to communicate with their owners. Powerful, intelligent and profound sci-fi, with assured direction, impressive but restrained effects and anchored by a mesmerising performance from Adams as the brave, vulnerable and fallible central character.

Bad Santa 2

Bad Santa 2
  • 2016
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mark Waters
  • Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Tony Cox, Brett Kelly, Kathy Bates, Christina Hendricks

Willie (Thornton) has slid back to rock bottom when his estranged accomplice Marcus (Cox) returns with the promise of a big payday. The first film was foul-mouthed, politically incorrect, lewd and rude, but also bracing and very funny. This is just bludgeoning, misanthropic and depressing and should never have been made.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston

Newt Scamander (Redmayne), a socially-challenged animal whisperer of sorts, has to gather up the fantastic beasts which have escaped from his briefcase and are roaming 1920s New York. A suitably magical spin-off, with Rowling's screenplay skilfully balancing dark and light, and director Yates maintaining a thrilling pace and exciting spectacle.

Metropolitan Opera: L'amour De Loin

  • 2017

Kaija Saariaho’s yearning medieval romance L’Amour de Loin (Love From Afar), has its Met premiere this season. Debuting Finnish conductor Susanna Mälkki leads the performance, which stars Susanna Phillips as Clémence, Eric Owens as Jaufré, and Tamara Mumford as the Pilgrim who carries messages of love between them.

Moana

Moana
  • 2016
  • US
  • 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 Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and doesn't bother with a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

Office Christmas Party

Office Christmas Party
  • 2016
  • US
  • Directed by: Josh Gordon, Will Speck
  • Cast: Jennifer Aniston, T. J. Miller, Jason Bateman, Kate McKinnon, Olivia Munn, Jamie Chung, Courtney B. Vance, Jillian Bell

When his uptight CEO sister threatens to shut down his branch, the branch manager throws an epic Christmas party in order to land a big client and save the day, but the party gets way out of hand …

Storks

Storks
  • 2016
  • US
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Nicholas Stoller, Doug Sweetland
  • Written by: Nicholas Stoller
  • Cast: Andy Samberg, Katie Crown, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Danny Trejo, Stephen Kramer Glickman

Storks used to deliver babies, but now they run an Amazon-style delivery service; then ambitious stork Junior (Samberg) and colleague Tulip (Crown) have to deliver an actual baby. Colourful animation and some amusing voice work can't fix the gigantic plot holes, which will leave both parents and kids scratching their heads.

Sully

Sully
  • 2016
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney

The story of pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger (Hanks), who became an unassuming hero in 2009 after successfully ditching a US Airways Airbus 320 on the Hudson River. Eckhart gives strong support as co-pilot Jeff Skiles but the film belongs to Hanks, whose understated performance, with the skilful re-enactments of the crash, make for riveting drama.

Trolls

Trolls
  • 2016
  • US
  • 92 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Mike Mitchell
  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, Gwen Stefani

Trolls are cute creatures who love EDM and warm hugs, but they're preyed on by Bergens, toothy monsters who think eating Trolls will bring happiness. Hyperactive buddy movie with dazzling visuals and lots of ditzy fun, but not as fresh or original as some of the competition.
