Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Luke Skywalker should count himself lucky – his dad only wanted to rule the universe. When Peter Quill aka Star Lord (Chris Pratt) finally catches up with his old man, Ego (Kurt Russell), in this sequel to 2014’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, he’s up to a whole lot worse. We find our heroes up to their necks in trouble after Rocket the Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) steals a satchel-full of alien batteries from a warlike, golden-skinned Priestess.

Gold

As perky and plastic as the Spandau Ballet song that shares its title, this pacy but uninvolving stock market drama repeatedly swerves the opportunity to do or say anything particularly interesting. Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey, with a magnificently receding hairline) is a gold prospector to the core. His grandpa drove a horse cart west in search of riches and his dad is a mining legend.

Life

There may be intelligent life hidden on Mars, but there’s precious little of it hidden in Hollywood if this feeble ‘Alien’ clone is anything to go by. Exactly how this clunky, by-the-numbers sci-fi horror managed to blast free of the DVD bin and engage A-list stars like Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds is hard to figure out, because it certainly wasn’t the script. Maybe the idea of floating round a tin can gesticulating at blue-screen beasties just sounded like a fun way to kill time.

Kong: Skull Island

This latest, 1970s-set spin on the King Kong legend is enjoyably big on spectacle but light on subtlety.
