Jumanji
Film, Fantasy

Jumanji

The late, great Robin Williams stars in this '90s action romp about a Victorian jungle-based boardgame that comes to life and causes pandemonium.

Spider-Man: Homecoming
Film, Action and adventure

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Tom Holland's solo outing as Spider-Man might be the umpteenth reboot of the webbed superhero, but thankfully this outing avoids Spidey's clichéd origin story in favour for something far more wholesome and, well, teenage.

Snatch
Film

Snatch

Ritchie's follow-up to Lock, Stock is an even more craftily concocted underworld entertainment. This is helped no end by the casting of Pitt as the bare-knuckle boxer Mickey, hellraising kingpin of a caricatured Irish Romany encampment, who get messily involved with a psychopathic promoter. The knowing macho heroics, pubwise patter, tongue in cheek ethnic comparisons, locations and designer violence are balanced with a showman's bravado, fending off offensiveness with neat reversals, little ironies and hyperbolic buffoonery.

The Great Gatsby

Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan star in ‘Romeo + Juliet’ and ‘Moulin Rouge!’ director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 state-of-the-nation novel.

Baby Driver
Film, Action and adventure

Baby Driver

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.

Shaun of the Dead
Film, Comedy

Shaun of the Dead

A slacker romp, this 'rom-zom-com' from the creative duo behind the Channel 4 sitcom Spaced takes a simple conceit (think George Romero meets early Kevin Smith) and goofs off with it something rotten.

Film, Comedy

Spring Breakers

Come for the teens-gone-wild premise and Selena Gomez, but stay for the oddly tender scene involving Britney Spears’s ‘Everytime’ and commentary on late-stage capitalism.

Film, Drama

The Wife

Glenn Close is typically brilliant as the titular wife in a tale of a marriage cracking under the pressures of fame, neediness and revenge.
