While it may not reinvent the mystery wheel, or have some of its emotional content compromised by sequel-baiting, Branagh offers a pleasant trip. Sumptuously mounted and scored, Branagh expertly leads a solid troupe of veterans who play off each other well.
Colourful, frenetic and even sometimes touching, 'Ragnarok' may get a little too indulgent at times, but it has an irrestible charm. Great cast, with special props to Goldblum and Blanchett, and Waititi brings the action and comedy goods.
Frequently touching and amusing, 'Their Finest' doesn't drastically reinvent melodrama, but Arterton and crew give it great gusto. Also a great watch for writers, as there's a fair bit to identify with in Catrin's journey as person and creative voice.
Lax plotting and a questionable use of teh source material, Coraci's adventure isn't as bad as its reputation may suggest. A game cast, some fun comic-kung fu setpieces with Chan and an optimistic and chipper tone go a long way.
