FINDING DORY

Rating: G
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 95pc
Stars: Ellen De Generes, Ed O'Neill, Diane Keaton

In this follow-up to the blockbuster Finding Nemo, forgetful Dory sets off to find her parents in a journey that turns out to be both physical and metaphorical.

"While not as visually dazzling as its predecessor, the film is still colourful and immersive; the script, while predictable, puts an engaging spin on the issues of home and identity"

 

BFG

Rating: PG
Rotten Tomatoes: 71pc
A faithful adaptation of Roald Dahl's timeless classic about a 10-year-old girl who is kidnapped by an amiable giant.

"The special effects are spectacular. And there's no faulting Mark Rylance as the giant. But things get 'a bit grumbly' when the worlds of Spielberg and Dahl collide"

 

THE LEGEND OF TARZAN

Rating: M
Rotten Tomatoes: 35pc
Tarzan is lured to The Congo from his comfortable adopted home in Victorian England. Vine-swinging mayhem ensues.

"Plays as if a dog ate part of the script"

 

ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE

Rating: G
Rotten Tomatoes: 10pc
Manny the mammoth and Sid sloth save the world from destruction in the fifth in the franchise in 14 years.

"The main storyline combines pointlessly glossy animation with dialogue from a mediocre sitcom about the woes of middle age"

 

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE

Rating: G
Rotten Tomatoes: 100pc
An inner-city orphan teams up with a grumpy old backwoodsman for a comedic journey of discovery.

"Wilderpeople is ultimately winning, like all buddy comedies, because of the chemistry of its leads"

 

NOW YOU SEE ME 2

Rotten Tomatoes: 34pc

A group of uber magicians known as The Four Horseman employ their talents to expose an unethical tech giant.

"It's an impressively starry cast, but sadly, this lacks the charm, wit and, yes, magic of the original"
