Based on the true story of the 1973 tennis match between unrepentant male chauvinist ex-no. 1 Bobby Riggs (Carell) and Wimbledon champion Billie Jean King (Stone).

Blade Runner 2049

  • 5 stars
  • 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
  • UK release: 6 October 2017

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…

Blade Runner: The Final Cut

  • 4 stars
  • 2007 (1982)
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, M. Emmet Walsh, Daryl Hannah, William Sanderson, Brion James, Joe Turkel, Joanna Cassidy

Fifteen years on from the 1992 'Director's Cut', Scott has had another bash at his sci-fi opus which pitted Deckard (Ford) against a slew of replicants. Now a more linear, voiceover-free film noir, for once a great film has been made better thanks to advances in special effects technology and thoughtful rethinking.

Clerks

  • 4 stars
  • 1994
  • US
  • 1h 32min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Kevin Smith
  • Cast: Brian O'Halloran, Jeff Anderson, Marilyn Ghigliotti.

Just when you were sick of the very sight of the word 'slacker', along came Clerks and gave the whole commercialisation of the Gen X lifestyle a good hard kick up the backside. Kevin Smith's hilariously foul dialogue peps up the exchanges on life, sex and everyday living between bored convenience store check-out assistant…

The Disaster Artist

  • 2017

  • Directed by: James Franco
  • Cast: James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Hannibal Buress, Melanie Griffith, Sharon Stone, Jacki Weaver
  • UK release: 6 December 2017

The story behind the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, regarded by many as the worst movie ever made; Franco plays the hapless auteur with impressive mimicry and sincerity. A charming tale about friendship, reaching for your dreams and trying to make it in Hollywood.

  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Nicolas Winding Refn
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, Ron Perlman, Oscar Isaac, Albert Brooks

Gosling's Hollywood stuntman/getaway driver gets mixed up with the wrong crowd in writer/director Nicolas Winding Refn's crime thriller. Refn's proved to be (arguably) one of the greatest film stylists and genre anarchists working today and the dialogue is reductive, elusive and cloaked in cod portent and existential…

Moonee (Prince) is a six-year-old being raised by her trash-talking mom in a motel near Florida’s Disney World, where she and her pal Scooty (Riviera) terrorise guests at a neighbouring establishment.

  • Written by: Chris Columbus
  • Cast: Zach Galligan, Phoebe Cates, Hoyt Axton, Frances Lee McCain, Corey Feldman

Cute and cuddly little mogwais become malevolent monsters if not properly cared for and wreak havoc in idealised small town America. A tongue-in-cheek Yuletide romp filled with in-jokes.

  • 2h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa
  • UK release: 17 November 2017

A team of superheroes forms to fight an alien invasion led by chief baddie Steppenwolf (Hinds). As so often, the villain is less interesting than the heroes, being a soulless CGI creation, but Affleck and Gadot are growing into their roles and it’s a lot better than the lumbering Batman vs Superman.
