  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia
  • UK release: 3 July 2015

Documentary on Amy Winehouse, charting her career from her early days to superstar status and subsequent fall. Kapadai creates an incredibly intimate look at the singer, with clips of her lighter side underlining the gravity of her loss. Punchy, provocative and just plain sad.

  • 98 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Thomas Cailley
  • Cast: Adèle Haenel, Kévin Azaïs, Antoine Laurent

Madeleine (Haenel) is an apocalypse-obsessed survivalist who, when she wrestles affable Arnaud (Azaïs) to the ground during a self-defence demo, causes him to be smitten with her. Endearingly scrappy, unsentimental debut comedy about two small-town outsiders, with hugely likable performances from the leads.

Mad Max: Fury Road

  • 4 stars
  • 2015
  • US/Australia
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Miller
  • Written by: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nico Lathouris
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
  • UK release: 15 May 2015

Reluctant hero Max (Hardy) is drawn into helping Imperator Furiosa (Theron, excellent), who's liberated a group of sexually enslaved women and is being pursued for her trouble by the grotesque Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Precision-executed lunacy, a brilliantly feminist 'western on wheels' with a generous helping of heart.

Magic Mike XXL

  • 4 stars
  • 2015
  • US
  • 115 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Greg Jacobs
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer
  • UK release: 3 July 2015

Mike (Tatum) takes a weekend away from his business to join his stripper buddies on a road trip to … a stripping convention. Winning blend of male bonding and female fantasy, with the men much more likable than most all-male comedy ensembles. As sweet and steamy as fresh cherry pie.

Minions

  • 3 stars
  • 2015
  • US
  • 91 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin
  • Written by: Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock
  • UK release: 26 June 2015

Prequel to the Despicable Me films, in which the pill-shaped, dungaree-sporting critters attach themselves to villain Scarlett Overkill (Bullock) and go to London to steal the Crown Jewels. The minions are as cute as ever but they seem funnier in support, and Bullock's character is one-dimensional.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Laura Linney, Hattie Morahan, Hiroyuki Sanada, Patrick Kennedy
  • UK release: 19 June 2015

Sherlock Holmes (McKellen) is 93 and living in with his stern housekeeper (Linney) and her son (Parker); the aged detective is still haunted by a case from 30 years before. McKellen is superb, Linney is on form and while the unhurried pace will frustrate some, if you like a meditative Holmes, this is for you.

Pitch Perfect 2

  • 2 stars
  • 2015
  • US
  • 114 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Elizabeth Banks
  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Adam DeVine, Kelley Jakle, Chrissie Fit, Hailee Steinfeld, Katey Sagal, Elizabeth Banks
  • UK release: 15 May 2015

After a catastrophic wardrobe malfunction at the White House, the Barden Bellas attempt to get their groove back in a Eurovision-like song contest. Despite highlights such as Lee's brilliantly weird performance as Lilly, the knowing charm of the original is diluted and Wilson's schtick, in particular, is starting to grate.

Queen and Country

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • UK/France/Romania
  • 115 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Boorman
  • Written by: John Boorman
  • Cast: Callum Turner, Caleb Landry Jones, Tamsin Egerton
  • UK release: 5 June 2015

In this sequel to 1987's Oscar-nominated Hope and Glory, Bill (Turner) is called up for National Service and has to face the prospect of fighting in the Korean War. Endearingly clear-eyed and surefooted, with Boorman bringing the best out of an excellent cast, but it lacks the focus of its predecessor.

Fri 7 Aug

A Royal Night Out

  • 4 stars
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 97 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Julian Jarrold
  • Written by: Trevor De Silva/Kevin Hood
  • Cast: Sarah Gadon, Emily Watson, Rupert Everett
  • UK release: 15 May 2015

Whimsical romance based on the true story of how, on VE Day 1945, the teenage princesses Elizabeth (Gadon) and Margaret (Powley) were allowed out of Buckingham Palace to celebrate with the crowds. Gadon is hugely likeable, Powley steals scenes, Everett is excellent as their father and it's tender, funny and occasionally…
