Better Watch Out

Better Watch Out
  • 2017
  • Australia / US
  • 1h 29min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Chris Peckover
  • Cast: Olivia DeJonge, Levi Miller, Patrick Warburton, Virginia Madsen

Twelve-year-old Luke (Miller) is being babysat by 17-year-old Ashley (DeJonge), who he fancies his chances with, but then an intruder breaks into the house. The story proceeds through stabbings, paint-can experiments and torture, keeping you on the alert. Mischievous fun.

Daddy's Home 2

Daddy's Home 2
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, John Cena, John Lithgow, Mel Gibson

Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell) are now best of friends, but have to spend their holidays with their respective fathers (Lithgow and Gibson). A leaden-footed screenplay disgraces and humiliates everyone on screen, celebrating toxic masculinity and portraying women as either shrill party poopers or delinquent femme fatales. Worst film of the year.

Justice League

Justice League
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa

A team of superheroes forms to fight an alien invasion led by chief baddie Steppenwolf (Hinds). As so often, the villain is less interesting than the heroes, being a soulless CGI creation, but Affleck and Gadot are growing into their roles and it’s a lot better than the lumbering Batman vs Superman.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

The Man Who Invented Christmas
  • 2017
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bharat Nalluri
  • Cast: Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce, Simon Callow, Donald Sumpter, Miriam Margolyes, Morfydd Clark, Justin Edwards, Ian McNeice, Bill Paterson

Charles Dickens (Stevens), down on his luck, is in desperate need of a hit when Ebenezer Scrooge (Plummer) pops into his head and starts offering pointers. Decent if occasionally twee adaptation of Les Standiford’s non-fiction book, with Stevens being sympathetic and energetic and Plummer clearly relishing a chance to do Scrooge.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

From the ashes of the Empire, the villainous First Order rises up to destroy Luke Skywalker (Hamill) – but where is he? Fans can rejoice: Episode VII is sensational and surprisingly emotional, with a finely-crafted script and effects that never overpower the performances. Star Wars is back in a big way.

  • Cast: Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay, Owen Wilson

Auggie Pullman (Tremblay) has endured over 27 operations to correct his facial abnormalities and is at last going to school, to his parents’ concern. Chbosky manages to pluck your heartstrings without coating the story in sugar, thanks in part to the excellent work of Tremblay, Robert and Wilson.
