  • Cast: Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Kassovitz

Within Jeunet's fantastical world – a reimagining of Paris' oldest quarter, Montmartre – the eccentric adventures of his eponymous heroine unfold in a manner as complex as a Swiss timepiece when Amélie decides to bring happiness to deserving people by playing elaborately benevolent practical jokes on them. A film that…

  • Japan
  • 1h 58min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Kinji Fukasaku
  • Cast: Tatsuya Fujiwara, Aki Maeda, Taro Yamamoto, Takeshi Kitano, Masanobu Ando

'Lord Of The Flies' is re-imagined as a violent pre-millennial nightmare as a class of teenage Japanese schoolchildren is abandoned on an island, given a variety of weapons, and told that only the last survivor will be allowed to leave. Superbly violent and satirical Japanese cult film that was clearly made to goad the…

  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman

Nolan's revamp of the superhero franchise reaches its apotheosis with this sequel to Batman Begins, a supremely well-imagined, perfectly executed film that combines blockbuster spectacle with indie cinema cool and smarts. Psychotic, chaos-loving clown The Joker (Ledger) is introduced as the dark knight's ultimate nemesis…

Deadpool

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Tim Miller
  • Written by: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein
  • UK release: 10 February 2016

Cynical crook Wade Wilson (Reynolds) undergoes an experimental procedure to transform him into a superhero, but emerges as the scarred and revenge-bent Deadpool. The emphasis on knowing humour is a bit obnoxious but it's a lot of fun, and Reynolds, with his likeability and swagger, was born to play the title role.

Early Man

  • 4 stars
  • 2018
  • UK

  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, Selina Griffiths, Johnny Vegas, Mark Williams, Gina Yashere, Simon Greenall
  • UK release: 26 January 2018

Gormless caveman Dug (Redmayne) and his clan are menaced by Bronze Age invader Lord Nooth (Hiddleston), until twinkle-toed defector Goona (Williams) joins them to help them unite. Deliciously daft prehistoric fun from Park and his team on top form, with winning human touches, plenty of sight gags and painful puns.

  • 1978
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Randal Kleiser
  • Cast: John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing, Jeff Conaway

Sandy (Newton-John) meets Danny (Travolta) and they have a summer romance, but he doesn't expect to see her turn up at his school the following year. There follows teenage angst, misunderstandings and a joyful reunion. Despite its dubious 'change yourself to attract the person you want to be with' message, it's a good…

  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Gracey
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

  • 1h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nash Edgerton
  • Cast: Joel Edgerton, Charlize Theron, David Oyelowo

Harold (Oyelowo) is a Nigeria-born American businessman who fakes his own kidnapping in Mexico, after uncovering the shady dealings of his duplicitious bosses (Edgerton and Theron). Mildly entertaining, with Oyelowo an appealing lead and Theron good fun as an amoral monster, but with too many characters and subplots it…

  • UK release: 30 March 2018

When the corrupt Mayor of Megasaki City sends all the dogs to Trash Island, his 12-year-old ward Atari (Rankin) goes there to find out what happened to his beloved Spots (Schreiber). Sensationally rendered stop-motion tribute to Japanese cinema, rich in detail and full of deadpan heroism and epic ineptitude. Delightful.

  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 32min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Paddy Considine
  • Cast: Paddy Considine, Jodie Whittaker, Paul Popplewell

Matty (Considine) is a former world middleweight champion who sustains a life-altering injury during a fight, and who must struggle to keep going his relationship with his wife Emma (Whittaker) and new baby. Tender and earnest drama from writer-director Considine, flawed by not giving enough narrative room to Emma and her…

  • Directed by: Joel Schumacher
  • Written by: Janice Fischer, James Jeremias, Jeffrey Boam
  • Cast: Corey Feldman, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim, Edward Herrmann, Barnard Hughes, Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Dianne Wiest

Anaemic comic horror as a Santa Monica teen falls into bad company in the shape of a mad, bad and dangerous-to-know gang of vampires. Constant MTV visuals make this an altogether resistible affair.

A Quiet Place

  • 4 stars
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 35min
  • Directed by: John Krasinski
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Noah Jupe

Lee Abbott (Krasinski), his wife Evelyn (Blunt), son (Jupe) and deaf daughter (Simmonds) live and work in an empty dystopian world in complete silence, hiding from creatures who hunt by sound. Krasinski's third film as director is a smart, weird sci-fi frightener that is beautifully simple but thoughtfully composed.

  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 20min
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance

Wade (Sheridan) lives in a city wasteland of rusting trailers called The Stacks, spending his days playing (along with nearly everyone else) in a VR world called the OASIS. But then OASIS’s creator dies; who will inherit his fortune? Eye-popping blockbuster, relentlessly entertaining but without much emotion or involvement.

T2 Trainspotting

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 57min
  • 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.

Wayne's World

  • 1991
  • US
  • 1h 35min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Penelope Spheeris
  • Written by: Mike Myers, Bonnie Turner, Terry Turner
  • Cast: Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere

Two heavy metal dorks hit the big time when their public access cable show is snapped up by a greedy TV exec for national primetime. Crammed full of TV and film pastiches, this US phenomenon has far more hits than misses, while Wayne and Garth revel in an even wackier vocabulary than cinematic first cousins Bill and Ted.

Withnail & I

  • 1987
  • UK
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bruce Robinson
  • Written by: Bruce Robinson
  • Cast: Paul McGann, Richard E Grant, Richard Griffiths, Ralph Brown

Two out-of-work actors surviving 1969 London giro squalor take a break in a picturesque Lake District cottage, where one of them suffers the attentions of the predatory owner. Entertaining British comedy with a dedicated following; do not attempt to drink along with it.
