Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto

Blade Runner K (Gosling) is tasked with finding replicants who are passing themselves off as human, but then he makes an earth-shattering, game-changing discovery. Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel to Scott’s original is beautiful, powerful and relevant; Gosling is exceptional, and Ford steals the show as the ageing but still gruff and quick-witted Deckard. A triumph.

Blood Simple

Blood Simple
  • 1983
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen (uncredited)
  • Written by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen
  • Cast: John Getz, Frances McDormand, Dan Hedaya, Samm-Art Williams, M Emmet Walsh

Auspicious debut from the Coen brothers' direction/production team. Walsh excels as the seedy sheriff investigating a simple murder whose devilish Texan chronicle of double-crossing is anything but simple. An enthusiastic attempt at contemporary film noir which keeps everyone guessing even after the final frame.

Brimstone

Brimstone
  • 2016
  • US
  • 2h 29min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Martin Koolhoven
  • Cast: Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, Kit Harington, Emilia Jones,

America, the end of the 19th century: Liz (Fanning) is a young woman who is mercilessly stalked by an evil Reverend (Pearce). The persistent violence becomes increasingly absurd the longer the film goes on, and despite the occasional arresting image concerning the silencing and erasure of women, it’s relentlessly brutal and weirdly flat.

Daphne

Daphne
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 1h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Peter Mackie Burns
  • Written by: Nico Mesinga
  • Cast: Emily Beecham, Geraldine James, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor

Daphne (Beecham) is a wisecracking 31-year-old who thinks she knows it all before she witnesses something which knocks her for six. The script could be punchier and James is wasted as Daphne’s mum, but Burns’s narrative debut benefits from Beecham’s charismatic performance: a star in the making.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

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.

Goodbye Christopher Robin

Goodbye Christopher Robin
  • 2017
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Simon Curtis
  • Written by: Frank Cottrell Boyce, Simon Vaughan
  • Cast: Margot Robbie, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Macdonald

The story of ex-Army officer-turned-writer AA Milne (Gleeson), and how he turned to children’s literature after the public showed little desire to read his anti-war writings. Curtis handles the awkward but loving father-son relationship beautifully and it’s a competent and credible work, with subtle and intelligent use of animation.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 2h 21min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
  • Written by: Jane Goldman, Matthew Vaughn
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong

After the Kingsman HQ is destroyed, street kid-turned-superspy Eggsy (Egerton) and gadget man Merlin (Strong) team up with their US equivalents to defeat drug baroness Poppy (Moore). Vaughan and Goldman turn up the preposterous comic book shenanigans at the expense of charm and basic plausibility, but fans will like it.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

The LEGO Ninjago Movie
  • 2017
  • US / Denmark
  • 1h 41min
  • U
  • Directed by: Charlie Bean/Paul Fisher/Bob Logan
  • Cast: Dave Franco, Olivia Munn, Justin Theroux, Jackie Chan

Lloyd (Franco) is the son of evil Lord Garmadon (Theroux), who wants to conquer Ninjago; however, Lloyd is also one of the team of ninja dedicated to combatting Garmadon and his minions. Not the most inspired of the LEGO movies but bright, brash and amusing, with intricate action, lots of slapstick fun and a delightful sequence of a cat destroying a city.

Royal Opera House: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

  • Directed by: Tomas Alfredson

Victoria & Abdul

Victoria and Abdul
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 1h 51min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Eddie Izzard, Adeel Akhtar, Michael Gambon

When Queen Victoria (Dench) is introduced to a young man from India, Abdul Karim (Fazal), she is charmed when he prostrates himself and kisses her foot: unlikely cross-cultural friendship and Urdu lessons duly ensue. Fazal and Dench are excellent and there’s a surprisingly effective political subtext.
