Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Soren
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Ed Helms

Animated superhero comedy based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey. This is a film that sides with the kids, right down to its sly jabs at uncaring, cash-starved school systems and loose message about the value of laughing at yourself; and, of course, at the mere existence of a planet called Uranus.

Coraline

Coraline 2D
  • 2009
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Henry Selick
  • Cast: Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French, John Hodgman, Ian McShane

After her family moves to Pink Mansions, Coraline (voiced by Fanning) quickly becomes bored with the large dusty house, and in particular with her hardworking parents (Hatcher and Hodgman). The fantasy kicks into top gear when she discovers a secret door that leads her into an alternate version of her home. A lush, visually imaginative and freshly entertaining stop-motion adaptation of Neil Gaiman's children's novel.

Girls Trip

Girls Trip
  • 2017
  • 2h 2min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Malcolm D Lee
  • Cast: Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith

Four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival and rediscover their wild sides. The fact that peeing on a crowd of partygoers is depicted as a show of female solidarity and mega dance-offs are the way to recover from hallucinogenic absinthe freak-outs makes this an indecently refreshing tonic of a film.

  • Directed by: David Alaux
  • Cast: Paul Borne, Philippe Bozo, Pascal Casanova

Maurice (Bozo) is a penguin who’s been raised by Natacha, a tigress (Darah). He leads his own team of crime-fighting creatures against evil koala Igor (Darbois) and his baboons. Lush animation and a brisk, unpretentious story make for a cheap but cheerful rumble in the jungle for pre-teens.

The Limehouse Golem

The Limehouse Golem
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Juan Carlos Medina
  • Cast: Olivia Cooke, Eddie Marsan, Bill Nighy

In Victorian London, Scotland Yard detective John Kildare becomes embroiled with music hall performer Lizzie Cree (Olivia Cooke). This adaptation by Jane Goldman of Peter Ackroyd’s 1994 novel never quite finds its rhythm, and although Cooke and Nighy are good, it promises more than it delivers.

  • Directed by: Steven Soderbergh
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Daniel Craig

Jimmy (Tatum), his brother Clyde (Driver) and sister Mellie (Keough) enlist the help of redneck jailbird and explosives expert Joe Bang (Craig) to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Soderbergh’s latest comedy heist movie is perhaps his best, with a great cast, a satisfying plot and witty dialogue.

Metropolis

Metropolis
  • 1927
  • Germany
  • 2h 28min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Fritz Lang
  • Cast: Gustav Frolich, Brigitte Helm.

Lang's still stunning science fiction classic. The images of a futuristic city are as marvellously iconic and influential as ever. And the story, concerning a revolt in a society which splits the 'workers' and 'thinkers', still speaks volumes today.

The Villainess

The Villainess
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Jung Byung-gil
  • Cast: Kim Ok-Bin, Sung Joon

Merciless killer Sook-hee (Kim) is recruited by Korean intelligence to be a top operative, and seeks revenge on the murderer of her father. The breathtaking and bloody action sequences serve the story, and Kim is brilliantly showcased as an ass-kicking heroine who deserves her own franchise.

Wind River

Wind River
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Taylor Sheridan
  • Cast: Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Kelsey Asbille

Cory Lambert (Renner) is a wildlife officer used to tracking predators, who teams up with rookie FBI agent Jane Banner (Olsen) to solve a murder in Wind River Indian Reservation. For all the sensitive handling of Native American issues, the dialogue is hokey, the Olsen character is underwritten and there’s too much focus on Renner’s character.
