Moana

Flawless new-generation animation from Disney. Action, heart, comedy and very catchy songs.

Triple 9

Derivative, badly cast cops + robbers pic. A pale imitation of Heat, without the style or performances.

13 Hours

Beard-heavy special ops bloodbath, with more than a passing nod to the equally impartial Black Hawk Down.

Radiohead

Roundhouse

There's a midlife crisis going on, but great visuals and a stellar back catalogue keep it exciting.

101 Dalmatians

Dated effort from 60s Disney, sacrificing production value for cheap gags.

Halliwell says: Disney's last really splendid feature cartoon, with the old flexible style cleverly modernized and plenty of invention and detail in the story line. The London backgrounds are especially nicely judged.**

Oslo, London

Shoegaze-heavy warm up gig for a long overdue comeback tour. Still generating a hypnotic wall of sound.

Jurassic World

Aliens x Jaws 3D in this derivative, gimmick-heavy, CGI-bloated reboot. Chris Pratt keeps it real.

Amy

Mundane biopic. Nicely put together with no talking heads - but it's not particularly interesting or inspiring.
