The Interview

  • Rated as: 4/5

Despite making a career of playing slight variations on the same pasty manchild, Seth Rogen (together with longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg) has consistently used his broad appeal to laugh at the great crises of our times: cancer ('50/50'), the apocalypse ('This Is the End'), Zac Efron’s abs ('Bad Neighbours')...

Pioneer

  • Rated as: 3/5

This Nordic conspiracy thriller, very loosely based on real events, uncovers murky goings-on during the Norwegian oil boom of the 1980s. When the black stuff is discovered in the North Sea, the Norwegians call in American oilmen with the technical know-how to construct a sea-bed pipeline. The stakes are soon evident...

Soylent Green

Fleischer's dystopian sci-fi - adapted from Harry Harrison's Make Room! Make Room! - may have its flaws (it gets a bit messagey and sentimental at times, and the ending is not as surprising as it could be), but it certainly knocks the silly juvenilia epitomised and inspired by StarWars and ET for six. In some respects not unlike the (admittedly more complex) Blade Runner...

The Imitation Game

  • Rated as: 4/5

Hidden codes, secret meanings and mixed messages pulse through the reliable, old-fashioned, buzzing copper wires of true-life British period drama ‘The Imitation Game’. Snappy and not too solemn, but perhaps not as much of a psychological puzzle as it could have been...

Into the Woods

  • Rated as: 3/5

If you go down to the woods today… you’ll find A-listers dressed like ‘Game of Thrones’ extras belting out showtunes. ‘Into the Woods’, the 1987 fairytale mash-up musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, has fallen under Disney’s spell, getting the lavish big-screen treatment...

The Theory of Everything

  • Rated as: 4/5

At its best, this affecting biopic of the cosmos-rattling astrophysicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) smartly avoids schmaltz. Hawking has often seen the dark humour in the disease that began robbing him of his muscular functions...

Mortdecai

  • Rated as: 2/5

The Hollywood elite’s stalkerish obsession with the English aristocracy takes a peculiar new turn in this off-key, globetrotting action comedy. Johnny Depp plays the title character, a hereditary peer complete with a mansion near London, a manservant and a not entirely convincing...

Foxcatcher

  • Rated as: 3/5

This should have been something truly remarkable: a peerless cast of playing-against-type Hollywood bigwigs, a director whose track record (‘Capote’, ‘Moneyball’) screams quality and a real-life story that speaks to timely themes of wealth, privilege and exploitation...
