  • Another proper Charlie of a movie from Tim Burton to follow the lamentable, wet ‘Big Fish’? Thankfully, no. Burton is on much safer ground here with a charming children’s film that embraces imaginative production design and a wonderful creepy perf...

    Commercials director Tarsem Singh poured millions into this striking fantasia, shot in 18 countries, then self-distributed in the US (‘presented’ by David Fincher and Spike Jonze). It’s a unique undertaking, for good and ill. It’s 1915, and a movi...

    ET landed in the cosy American suburbs and wanted to go home. Now Scarlett Johansson – or something that looks like her – lands in modern Glasgow and thinks about sticking around in Jonathan Glazer’s creepy, mysterious and bold ‘Under the Skin’. O...

    While 'Finding Dory' is crammed with the kind of visual pleasures we’ve come to expect from Pixar, the story doesn’t always reach the heights of invention upon which the animation giant has built its reputation. The film lacks the psychological pr...

    A little orphan girl is snatched from her bed late at night by a big-hearted vegetarian giant and whisked off to an unwelcoming land of over-sized cannibals in Roald Dahl's much-cherished 1982 book 'The BFG'. For this movie version, aimed squarely...

    The hilarious start of this cartoon from the ‘Despicable Me’ team feels lifted from one of those pets-do-the-funniest-things montages on YouTube. Front-loading the best bits, ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ begins by imagining what the animals in a New ...

    ‘Not as bad as it should’ve been’. That’s not exactly overwhelming praise, but it’s about all this shameless, occasionally entertaining cash-in deserves. Arriving a good couple of years after the smartphone game ‘Angry Birds’ hit peak addiction, t...
