Dirty Dancing

  • 3 stars
  • 1987
  • US
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Emile Ardolino
  • Written by: Eleanor Bergstein
  • Cast: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes

The plot – in the summer of 1963 bad boy Johnny (Swayze) meets good girl Baby (Grey) and teaches her hip grinding, eventually winning the respect of her parents. Sure it's full of stereotyping, bad dialogue and a pre-teen sugar coated prurience, but decades on Dirty Dancing still has the ability to send a generation of…

Fifty Shades Darker

  • 2 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan
  • UK release: 10 February 2017

No surprises here: Anastasia (Johnson) gets sweet-talked back into the red room by Christian (Dornan). Foley seems to be under orders to skip the actual sex, as the real money shots are of Christian’s wardrobe. Johnson manages to be likeable and human, but otherwise it’s high on production values and short on story.


  • 1978
  • US
  • 86 min
  • Directed by: Claudia Weill
  • Cast: Jane Anderson, Bob Balaban, Tanya Berezin

A photographer and her roommate are stuck with small-time jobs and dream of success. When her roommate decides to move out and get married, the phorographer has to deal with living alone.

Hidden Figures

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 127 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Theodore Melfi
  • Cast: Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe

The true story of the African-American women who provided NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch its first successful space missions, despite institutionalised segregation in the workplace. The leads are wonderful and it’s an inspiring story about collective triumph.

Wed 5 Apr

Hunter & The Bear

Gnarly Scottish rock quartet.

Sat 20 May

The LEGO Batman Movie

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris McKay
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes
  • UK release: 10 February 2017

Batman (Arnett) is such a self-absorbed loner that even the Joker (Galifianakis) is peeved that Bats won’t recognise him as his greatest enemy, so the villain constructs a dastardly plot that incorporates every villain he can find, including the Daleks. Packed with gags and inventiveness, it’s tremendous fun.

Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism

  • 2016
  • UK
  • 98 min
  • Directed by: Christopher N Rowley
  • Cast: Dominic Monaghan, Emily Watson, Raffey Cassidy

An orphan who practices hypnosis faces off against a bank robber who wants her book on the art form.

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins
  • UK release: 28 November 2014

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

T2 Trainspotting

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, James Cosmo, Shirley Henderson, Irvine Welsh
  • UK release: 27 January 2017

Renton (McGregor) returns to Edinburgh from Amsterdam, two decades on. Hodge's blood-pumping script builds on the original with characters that are older, sadder and definitely not wiser, and resentment and guilt festering like an open sore; but is it Archie-Gemmill-scoring-against Holland good? Yes, it is.
