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.

Cézanne et Moi

Cézanne et Moi
  • 2016
  • France
  • 116 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Danièle Thompson
  • Cast: Guillaume Canet, Guillaume Gallienne, Alice Pol, Deborah Francois

The story of the lifelong friendship between painter Paul Cézanne (Gallienne) and Emile Zola (Canet), who share an idyllic childhood in Aix-en-Provence before Zola becomes an acclaimed writer and Cézanne an eternally aggrieved bu unsuccessful painter. Sketchy and superficial but with nice production design; still more soap opera than serious drama.

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.

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 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.
