Alice Through the Looking Glass

  • 4 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 113 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Mia Wasikowsksa, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen
  • UK release: 27 May 2016

Alice (Wasikowska) has to travel back in time to help the Mad Hatter (Depp), to the annoyance of Time (Baron Cohen). Nimble blockbuster with a good blend of mirth and melancholy, and director Bobin never lets the CGI swamp the story in the way Burton did in the first film.

The Angry Birds Movie

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Clay Kaytis/Fergal Reilly
  • Written by: Jon Vitti
  • Cast: Peter Dinklage, Kate McKinnon, Jason Sudeikis
  • UK release: 13 May 2016

Red (Sudeikis), a notably angry bird, joins an anger management class and makes some friends, but then green pigs arrive in the neighbourhood. Amusing if delayed adaptation of the smartphone game, with plenty of gags and puns for accompanying adults.

David Brent: Life on the Road

  • 3 stars
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ricky Gervais
  • Written by: Ricky Gervais
  • Cast: Ricky Gervais, Doc Brown, Andy Burrows, Rebecca Gethings
  • UK release: 19 August 2016

David Brent (Gervais) takes unpaid leave to pursue rock stardom with his band Foregone Conclusion. The skin-crawling songs are worth the price of admission, although the comedy feels crueller than before, and after a brilliant start and amusing middle, the film dissolves into cheap sentiment.

  • Cast: Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Ty Burrell, Willem Dafoe

In the sequel to the much-loved Finding Nemo, annoyingly forgetful Dory goes on an adventure to find her family, crossing three oceans to get to them with Marlon and Nemo just a swish behind her.

Ghostbusters

  • 2016
  • US
  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon
  • UK release: 11 July 2016

Physicist Erin (Wiig) finds herself teaming up with estranged high school pal Abby (McCarthy) and her eccentric engineer Jillian (McKinnon) in search of ghosts. Marred only by excessive reverence for the original, it's a spirited, funny and touching reboot which sticks two fingers up at sexist trolls.

  • 1 star
  • 2016
  • US
  • 87 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Barry Sonnenfeld
  • Cast: Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner, Robbie Amell, Christopher Walken
  • UK release: 19 August 2016

Tom Brand (Spacey) is a Trump-style entrepreneur who gets swapped into the body of a cat: one week before change irreversible, must learn life lessons, etc. Dim-witted children's comedy with a ridiculous premise, rubbish effects, heavy sentiment and a phoned-in voice performance from Spacey.

The Purge: Election Year

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 109 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James DeMonaco
  • Cast: Elizabeth Mitchell, Frank Grillo, Mykelti Williamson
  • UK release: 26 August 2016

In 2040, the sole survivor of a Purge killing is now a US senator (Mitchell) running for President, and she and her head of security find themselves out in the streets on Purge night. Exciting, brutal and dumb in equal measures, although it runs out of steam in its final act.

  • Directed by: Chris Renaud, Yarrow Cheney
  • Written by: Ken Daurio, Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Louis CK, Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Jenny Slate
  • UK release: 24 June 2016

Little Max (Louis CK) is a small dog who gets very lonely when his beloved human Katie (Kemper) leaves each day. But then she brings home a huge, shaggy rescue mutt (Stonestreet) and hijinks ensue. Undeniably derivative but cute and energetic comedy sustained by its fine voice cast.

Swallows and Amazons

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 97 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Philippa Lowthorpe
  • Cast: Rafe Spall, Andrew Scott, Kelly Macdonald, Jessica Hynes, Harry Enfield
  • UK release: 19 August 2016

Lake District, 1930: the plucky Walker siblings go up against fierce local gels Nancy and Peggy for possession of an island, while reclusive uncle Jim (Spall) is stalked by a sinister foreigner (Scott). Charmingly nostalgic kids' adventure, subtly modernised, with well-cast kids and Macdonald a pleasure as always. Sweetly…

Why is it that Neath Port Talbot Council spends millions on building a splendid theatre complex and then installs a website that is 'not fit for purpose'?
How is anybody to learn about the facilities so generously provided?
How can we learn about the plays, shows, concerts, and films that are available at Neath's Gwyn Hall?
Is there a competition for the worst website?
