  • Cost: well over $200m. Disregarding the ethics of such expenditure on a film, this unprecedented extravagance has not resulted in sophisticated or even very satisfying storytelling (11 Oscars notwithstanding). The main problem concerns characteris...

    An evolution of the tech-heavy Hollywood blockbuster, the ‘Planet of the Apes’ franchise is a Darwinian dream come true. These movies have captured a soulfulness that’s different from anything else out there. ‘Apes’ wrangler, director and co-writ...

    It seems third time’s the opposite of lucky with animated franchises. Like ‘Toy Story’ and ‘Ice Age’ before it, the ‘Despicable’ series has made the short trip from lovably madcap to tedious in three films (not counting the actually-kind-of-terrif...

    Music sounds better when you’re on the road. In ‘Baby Driver’, ‘Shaun of the Dead’ director Edgar Wright takes the car-chase action film – loaded with tyre squeals – and weds it to a cracking jukebox playlist. The result is the most supercharged p...

    Spiraling through the same vertiginous terrain as such nutty, chock-a-block sci-fi epics as 'Avatar' and David Lynch’s weird-on-weird 'Dune', the mega-expensive 'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' flaunts a visual imagination on fire – a...

    Al Gore cuts an unusually isolated figure – shot from behind, head bowed in thought – in the documentary 'An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power'. For all the dire environmental warnings in Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk’s serviceable follow-up to Davi...

    Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Beguiled’ is an exquisitely crafted drama of seduction, survival and sexual awakening in Civil-War era Virginia, with especially strong performances from Kirsten Dunst and Nicole Kidman as two teachers trying and failing to se...

A functional cinema in central London. Décor is dated, and the whole cinema feels like it’s been standing for a very very long time. However, they play all the latest releases here, it’s in a great location and tickets are really cheap - £6 on most weekdays, you can’t get much better than that for Covent Garden. Worth a visit if you want to see a film but aren’t really bothered about having a luxe ‘experience’.
