20th Century Women

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 119 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mike Mills
  • Cast: Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig
  • UK release: 10 February 2017

In late 70s California, teenager Jamie (Zunmann) grows up among three women: his chain-smoking mother Dorothea (Bening), punky photographer Abbie (Gerwig) and best friend Julie (Fanning). A poignant, witty and well-observed coming of age story.

Another Mother's Son

  • 2 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 103 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Menaul
  • Cast: Jenny Seagrove, Julian Kostov, Ronan Keating, John Hannah, Amanda Abbington
  • UK release: 24 March 2017

Louisa Gold (Seagrove) is a widowed Jersey shopkeeper with two sons fighting in WW2 when the Channel Islands are occupied by the Germans; she takes in an escaped Russian POW (Kostov). The look and atmosphere of 40s Jersey is well caught, but the story is predictable and it feels like a tame TV drama.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad
  • UK release: 17 March 2017

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

The Boss Baby

  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min

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.

Fight Club

  • 4 stars
  • 1999
  • US
  • 135 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Fincher
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter

Masculinity is in a mess and consumerism is to blame. Men have become docile spectators of life according to Fight Club, Fincher's controversial adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel. In reckless response to this late 20th century malaise, Norton's compliant spectator teams up with Pitt's mischievous Tyler Durden to form…

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.

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.

Mon 1 May

Life

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 103 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
  • Written by: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick
  • Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds
  • UK release: 24 March 2017

A Mars mission docks with the ISS bearing a single-celled alien organism, which then bursts out of containment. Derivative sci-fi drama which feels like a blend / rip-off of Alien and Gravity; you spend most of it wondering who’ll die next. Reasonably effective but inessential.

Wed 5 Apr

01202 499199

The Lost City of Z

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 141 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson
  • UK release: 24 March 2017

The true story of the Amazonian expeditions of British army officer Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), which inspired Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Despite good work from Hunnam, Miller as Percy’s plucky wife and Pattinson as his loyal sidekick, it’s a languorous and sometimes confusing story which sometimes becomes The Lost City of…

  • PG
  • Directed by: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones
  • Written by: Monty Python

Medieval legend done the Python way with modern misconceptions and anachronisms piling on the absurdity. Oh, and the Knights Who Say 'Ni!' make a cherishable appearance.

The Time Of Their Lives

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 104 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Goldby
  • Written by: Roger Goldby
  • Cast: Joan Collins, Pauline Collins, Franco Nero
  • UK release: 10 March 2017

Priscilla (P. Collins) is a neglected housewife who finds herself on coach trip to France with some dotty pensioners, including forgotten film star Helen (J. Collins). The Collinses make an engaging double act and it works best when it goes a little off the rails, but this amiable comedy occasionally feel unfinished.

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.

Tue 28 Mar

True Romance

  • 18
  • Directed by: Tony Scott
  • Written by: Quentin Tarantino, Roger Avary (uncredited)
  • Cast: Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken

Comic bookstore assistant Clarence meets, sleeps with and marries novice hooker Alabama within a matter of hours, then the lovebirds find themselves on the run with an accidentally stolen case of cocaine. Limelight-stealing cameos and writer Quentin Tarantino's verbal set-pieces fire this excellent movie, the epitome of…

Viceroy's House

  • 2 stars
  • 2017
  • UK / India
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gurinder Chadha
  • Cast: Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Hugh Bonneville, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi
  • UK release: 3 March 2017

Lord Louis Mountbatten (Bonneville) is to oversee Britain’s withdrawal from India and the ensuing partition, but he and his wife Edwina (Anderson) witness the violence erupting through the country. A below-stairs romance between Dayal and Qureshi is frustratingly insipid and the Indian characters are all unforgivably…

  • 1939
  • US
  • 102 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Victor Fleming/Norman Taurog/Richard Thorpe
  • Cast: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger

Miserable Dorothy runs away from home but is soon whisked up into a magical land where her adventures teach her that happiness is to be found in her own back yard. Classic stuff indeed, just chockful of great songs, characterisation and memorably garish design. Perhaps marginally less enjoyable for the curmudgeonly…
