Miss Sloane

Miss Sloane
15/5/17 A political thriller about a lobbyist fighting against pro-guns might not seem the most exciting of subject matters but this wordy film is given an ace card: Jessica Chastain. She is mesmerizing in a role that, frankly, is unlikeable and yet she dominates the screen throughout, leaving the rest of the cast as bit players. Well worth watching just for her performance and the neat twist in the final act.

Alien: Covenant
12/5/17 After the disappointment of Prometheus, Ridley Scott returns to form with this sequel in which a crew delivering a colony, discover a voice from a nearby planet, only to find that they have to duped into a new creation if alien creature. Gone is the pompousness and pretentiousness, replaced by action, scares and plenty of shocks and gore. It's the Alien movie that Prometheus should have been.

Internal Affairs
9/5/17 Dark thriller with Andy Garcia as an Internal affairs cop investigating Richard Gere, in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Mike Figgis's powerful film is both gripping and impressive, with a career high performance from Gere at his most evil. Solid support from Laurie Metcalf as Garcia's partner in a truly adult thriller that treats its audience like adults.

X-Men: The Last Stand
5/5/17 I don't understand the bad blood this third part has received. It might not have the emotional punch of the first two but as a piece of comic book entertainment, it does the trick as the X-Men tackle Magneto once more for a child who has powers to heal the mutants, while Jean Gray becomes a force too powerful. Brett Radner might not be as solid a director as Bryan Singer, but he knows not to spoil the world he has done on the series.

Shaun of the Dead
3/5/17 The first part of Edgar Wright's Cornetto trilogy is still his best. A joyfully silly zombie comedy with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as the hapless heroes who find they are surrounded by the living dead. Filled with references to George A. Romeo's Living Dead movies, as well as a barrage of pop culture nods, especially when using vinyl as a weapon. Hilarious.

Saving Mr. Banks
1/5/17 Fascinating film about how Mary Poppins almost never got made due to the stubbornness of its creator, P.L. Travers. Cutting from her childhood to her time working on the script and being wooed by Walt Disney, Emma Thompson is terrific as Travers, while Tom Hanks brings a gentle calmness to his Disney. Funny, sweet and moving, it makes you look at the family classic in a different way.

Adult Life Skills
29/4/17 Bittersweet comedy with Jodie Whittaker as a woman approaching 30 who has made herself a hermit, making videos no one see, while living in her mother's shed. When her school friend arrives and a boy needs looking after, she finds she has to become an adult but something in her past is holding her back. Often funny, very quirky and surprisingly moving, this has a terrific lead performance from Whittaker.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
28/4/17 After the surprise that was the original film now comes the difficult second album. It still manages to tick all the right boxes but it does feel a little baggy in places and the finale relies on the familiar mass of effects and destruction. Still, the music is cracking, while Drax and Baby Groot get the biggest laughs. Not as good as the first but still plenty to admire.

Tickled
26/4/17 Interesting documentary about a New Zealand journalist who stumbles on a website in which tickling is a sport. When he decides to make a film about it, he soon becomes the victim of threats and bullying, which leads him to discover a much darker secret hidden behind the unusual videos. A gripping tale that is more about the secrets behind the web than about anything kinky.

Help!
23/4/17 The Beatles second feature is a surreal comedy in which Ringo is the target of a cult after they discover he has a sacrificial ring. The film is all over the place, with nothing really being coherent or making much sense. Yet it has plenty of energy, some of the jokes hit their targets and you do get to see the Fab Four performing. Bonkers but fun.
