March's biggest, best and trending films

Life

Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds star in this ‘Alien’-meets-‘Gravity’ space-thriller set on an international space station whose crew finds proof of life on Mars. This looks like could go either way: director Daniel Espinosa was responsible for the unwatchable ‘Child 44’, but Gyllenhaal and Reynolds feel like a bit of a dream team.

French arthouse superstar Isabelle Huppert plays a rape victim who turns the table on her attacker in this confrontational drama by Paul Verhoeven.

Logan

Here it is, Hugh Jackman’s last ever film as the Wolverine – and 'Logan' is the clawed-one's best ever solo outing. A bleak, bloodily violent superhero movie, this feels like a blockbuster for our times, with a moving performance by Patrick Stewart as Logan's Alzheimer's-stricken former mentor.

Free Fire

'Hire-Rise' director Ben Wheatley pulls together a super-talented cast for his riff on a ‘Reservoir Dogs’-style shoot 'em up.

The Lost City of Z

'The Lost City of Z' looks like a perfect Sunday afternoon epic. Directed by James Gray, it's based on the true story of Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), a British army officer who became obsessed with discovering a ‘lost’ civilization in Bolivian jungle. Sienna Miller plays his feminist wife and Robert Pattinson is practically unrecognisable behind a huge beard as his sidekick.

It's Tom Hiddleston v a big monkey. This 1970s-set King Kong origin story follows a team of US Marines fresh from Vietnam who join a band of explorers on a lost Pacific island. The cast is terrific: Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, and John Goodman join Hiddles on his epic quest.

Ghost in the Shell

This live action film based on the cult 1995 anime has been criticized for casting Scarlett Johansson in the lead. Will the ‘whitewashing’ scandal sidetrack the movie? If it sticks close to the original's dizzying blend of big ideas and hyper-speed action, maybe not.

I was lucky enough to catch an advance screening of this movie, and I was extremely glad I did. After watching the previews I felt as though a lot of the movie was given away, but I was blown away by the performances on screen. The movie was centered around a champion prize fighter hitting rock bottom, and slowly climbing his way back into the ring. It was an emotional journey that cannot simply be categorized as a movie about boxing, but rather, an inspiring and riveting tale of parenthood and a father's love for his daughter. The cast was excellent and everyone excelled in their roles. I wouldn't have expected to like Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson in a role as much as I did. Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker had Oscar worthy performances. Everyone did a great job with their roles. The cinematography was fantastic, and the fight scenes gave some great first person shots that made you feel as though you were there in the ring fighting along side the actors. Overall, this movie is an experience that is not to be missed

Schoenarts is amazing in 'Rust and Bone' as well, with Marainne Cotillard. By the way he's Belgian, not Dutch, and it not too hard to pronounce if you ignore the spelling - shone (rhymes with bone) arts - shone-arts .
