King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword
Film

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

Guy Ritchie’s way-over-the-top, frenzied spin on the legend of King Arthur, with a leaden Charlie Hunnam as the streetwise monarch-to-be and a much more fun Jude Law as his preening evil uncle King Vortigern, offers wall-to-wall testosterone, digital effects, fights and supernatural freak-outs. It walks like a hyped-up ‘Game of Thrones’ on a mega-budget with vast rural vistas, crowds of thousands, endless battles and plenty of bone-crunching.

Alien: Covenant
Film

Alien: Covenant

If just thinking about Michael Fassbender makes you want to strip off all your clothes, ‘Alien: Covenant’ has a cure for that. David the robot, his creepier-than-a-serial-killer android butler, was the breakout star of Ridley Scott’s 2012 ‘Alien’ prequel ‘Prometheus’. Scott, realising perhaps that David is scarier than a spaceship full of parasitic flesh-eaters, makes him the star of this sequel to the prequel. Just as well, because nothing else kicks quite enough ass.

Little Boy
Film

Little Boy

When auto mechanic James Busbee (Michael Rapaport) is sent to fight the Japanese during World War II, he leaves behind his wife (Emily Watson) and two sons, London (David Henrie) and Pepper (Jakob Salvati). Pepper feels his father's absence most keenly, and can't wait for him to return home. An encounter with a magician (Ben Chaplin) and advice from a priest (Tom Wilkinson) convince Pepper that the power to bring his dad back safely may be within himself and his actions.

I Am Not Your Negro
Film

I Am Not Your Negro

Masterfully addressing the American racial divide – past and present – director Raoul Peck’s six-years-in-the-making documentary, ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ thrums with a sense of history repeating itself. It’s inspired by 30 pages from the writer and intellectual James Baldwin’s unfinished final book, ‘Remember This House’.

Kong: Skull Island

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