It's pleasingly moving.

3.5/5
Foster's film is nevertheless one of the best big-budget flicks of the year so far, and should please any punters out there who have been financially screwed (and yes, that's everyone reading this).

Kidman, Franco, Lewis and Pattinson (of course) are all stiffly uneasy here.

2.5/5
Even with that cast, a serious budget and endless swooping camerawork and FX trickery, this remains gratingly silly, with director Jon M Chu handling everything with maximum cheesiness.

Morante, Spada and Gassman are pretty strong here under Falcone's direction, and yet Giallini rather overacts.

While you'll probably laugh at the stars' buddy-movie shenanigans, you'll certainly hate yourself in the morning for it -- even if this director never does.

New Zealand has never looked more breath-taking (and fearsome) and the performances are all tremendous here.

Having Reynolds' film rest upon Gulpilil's frail shoulders was also a wise decision.

Lewis Carroll fortunately only wrote two Alice books, which therefore means that, strictly speaking, there can't be a third film in this irksome series... or can there?

The Meddler (2016)
Susan Sarandon is the best reason to sit through it, as she offers a performance that's by turns charmingly funny, bitingly sad and convincingly annoying.

John Lithgow and Alfred Molina... deliver wonderful performances as long-in-love older gents kept apart by the real estate market (a familiar story, and not just in New York, it seems).

3/5
The young cast of Xers are all pretty good and some of the action scenes are expensively impressive, and yet this feels a little strained and overly familiar at times.

When this elderly man gets all choked up as he stands solemnly at Snowman's memorial headstone, 40 years after the beloved critter's passing, chances are you will too.

Chances are you'll still respond to the dark wit, but you probably won't be, ahem, Lima Yankee Foxtrot Alpha Oscar.

Elba is really the best reason to catch this lowbrow, ever-so-slightly-cursed-feeling effort.

3.5/5
Grant is delightful here and Helberg just about steals it in a winningly camp turn, and yet this is naturally all about Meryl, who makes Florence so fabulously high-spirited you can't help but like her.

2.5/5
Anyway, it's all pretty ludicrous... there's not much else here that's worth giggling at, no matter how extreme the gags involving vomit, tampons, dope, scrotums and roofies might get.

Observance (2015)
Sims-Dennett's ambitious low-budget effort obviously borrows riffs from Eraserhead, The Shining and other classics, but it's very much its own film. And a bloody creepy one too, mate.

3.5/5
This is all about Patel's characterisation, and while this London-born actor has been excellent before, here his measured, restrained playing holds the film together, and we wind up adoring this extraordinary man who really went to infinity -- and beyond.

Mother's Day (2016)
Labor Day? That title's taken. Groundhog Day? And again. Friday The 13th? Um... hey yeah, that could work!

3.5/5
Naturally this is all cluttered and overstuffed to the point of bursting, and yet the convoluted feel and overfamiliarity of much of the plotting is compensated for by the Russo brothers knack for gargantuan action, some tough laughs and real acting.

Truman (2017)
Barcelona-born co-writer/director Cesc Gay's study of friendship and fate is wryly funny and mercifully free of the wailing and hand-wringing that would surely fill any potential American remake.

3.5/5
[Midnight Special] occasionally feels like it's going off the rails -- and off its head. And yet Nichols' cast is so good and his handling so assured that it never quite flips out.

3.5/5
Jon Favreau's attempt is distinguished by some truly spectacular CG animated visuals, a cast of fine star vocalists and a not-too-heavy-handed environmental message replacing Rudyard's racist subtexts.

2.5/5
Just as tediously self-important, laden with blabbing exposition and full of Hunger-Games-esque rip-offs as the others.

The Boss (2016)
While the game co-stars here suggest that this is going to suddenly become amusing it never really does

4/5
First-time writer/director Lisa Nicol's study of Australian conductor Michelle Leonard and her Moorambilla Voices Choir is one of the great documentaries in a year in which the form is curiously absent from cinemas.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, which tedious sequel is yet to bore?

This is a return to Moore at his best and subtlest, with fewer show-off visual stylings, a more focused rage and a moving sense of melancholy.

[Labyrinth Of Lies offers] strong playing, fine period detail and a cautious tone.

3.5/5
This features fine, sometimes agreeably undisciplined work from a cast of unknowns, a lived-in and grungy look, and a line in curiously real hormonal concerns.

This nearly-five-years-later follow-up to the second effort's again flat and strained, although the animation is even snazzier.

3/5
This overheated, extravagant and indulgent epic (a sort of remake of Jacques Deray's La Piscine -- perhaps) is often fun, although after a while you do wind up wanting to strangle the cast in desperation.

Zootopia (2016)
This has enough light wit and gooey sentiment for Disney groupies, and yet it does leave many unanswered questions.

The Daughter (2017)
There's perhaps rather a lot going on here and yet Stone's handling is assured and impressive, and the performances are exquisite, with particularly strong work from Rush, Leslie, Schneider and a punky-haired Young.

3/5
It's almost too much to take in, meaning that by the time we finally get to the titular grudge match you could well be over it. Nevertheless, there are elements here that work strongly and even spectacularly.

This is agreeably exciting and tense at times, despite the fact that it's obvious that very little of it is, you know, real.

Triple 9 (2016)
The glowering performances, jittery camerawork, odd script contrivances, nagging incoherence and endless testosterone-spraying make it a criminally unlikable experience.

It goes on and on and on and on and on and on, getting less and less funny and more and more tedious. Orright?

The Witch (2016)
One of the best (and creepiest) movies of the year so far.
