Movie review: LA LA LAND
Movie review:
LA LA LAND

(US, 2016) Dir: Damien Chazelle. Stars Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Rosemarie DeWitt. "Buoyed by the charm and charisma of its talented stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, the film is a whirlwind of unbridled happiness that sweeps us away with music and colour. It's an ambitious glamorous work that is gloriously realized: the feel-good film of the holiday season," says Louise. (Releases December 26) REVIEW

JOHN POLSON: TROPFEST AT 25… in 2017

Movie reviews: ALLIED
Movie reviews:
ALLIED

(US, 2016) Dir: Robert Zemeckis. Stars Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard. "Love and betrayal are the themes of this sweeping love story in which star power and intrigue keep us on tenterhooks throughout… There are sparks galore between Pitt and Cotillard," says Louise. "Superbly designed and filmed, Allied is a film for grown ups that appreciate drama which reflects life that is not seen through a fake cinematic filter," says Andrew. (Releases December 26) REVIEWS

Movie review: RED DOG: TRUE BLUE
Movie review:
RED DOG: TRUE BLUE

(Aust, 2016) Dir: Kriv Stenders. Stars Bryan Brown, Jason Isaacs, Levi Miller, Hanna Mangan Lawrence. "With Bryan Brown and the stunning Pilbara region as its greatest assets, True Blue is a sweet film, although it lacks the completeness of the 2011 original," says Louise. (Releases December 26) REVIEW

Movie review: A UNITED KINGDOM
Movie review:
A UNITED KINGDOM

(UK, 2016) Dir: Amma Asante. Stars Rosamund Pike, David Oyelowo, Tom Felton. " It's a fascinating film but I couldn't help but wonder how much more potent it might have been in the hands of another director," says Louise. (Releases December 26) REVIEW; FEATURE

Review: ROSALIE BLUM
Review:
ROSALIE BLUM

(France, 2016) Dir: Julien Rappeneau. Stars Noémie Lvovsky, Kyan Khojandi, Alice Isaaz. "Delicately blending drama and romance with a comic touch, the film is a beguiling jigsaw puzzle in which lives intersect, connections are made and secrets revealed… Meet Rosalie Blum; you will be glad you did," says Louise. (Releases December 26) REVIEW

Movie review: SING
Movie review:
SING

(US, 2016). Dir: Garth Jennings, Christophe Lourdelet. Voices of Matthew McConaughey, Reece Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane. "It's hard to pick out highlights – the whole film is a highlight. The animal characters are recognisably authentic avatars for humans we all recognise, and are rendered with sublime artistry; we catch ourselves forgetting they are animations. It's just wonderful," says Andrew. (Releases December 26) REVIEW

Movie review: MOANA
Movie review:
MOANA

(US, 2016) Dir: Ron Clements, John Musker. Voices: Dwayne Johnson, Alan Tudyk, Philippa Soo, Auli'I Cravalho. "We are so spoilt by the amazing achievements of animation we hardly notice when something special comes along, unless we look out for it. Moana makes us look," says Andrew.

BRIDGET JONES’ BABY
Stars Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey. "Filled with priceless laugh out loud moments, everything comes together in this last chapter of the irresistible Bridget Jones story," says Louise.

SULLY
Stars Tom Hanks. "Based on the autobiographical book by Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger, Todd Komarnicki's screenplay is an economical and focused work, which Eastwood turns into a gripping film," says Andrew.

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN
Stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke. "Director Antoine Fuqua delivers a stylish, handsome western that would benefit from more light and shade. If you are expecting laughs you will be disappointed: bullets and horseplay are the main focus, although there are a few instances of dark humour," says Louise.

CAPTAIN FANTASTIC
Stars Viggo Mortensen, Frank Langella. "Challenging, complex and engaging, Captain Fantastic (irony abounds) is a bracing addition to the movie menu, observing the human condition with a jaundiced eye," says Andrew.

MISS PEREGRINE HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN
Stars Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson, Asa Butterfield. "Firmly branded with Tim Burton's magnetic and distinctive stamp, this wondrous time-travel fantasy adventure is propelled by imagination and superb execution. I felt like a kid in a candy store," says Louise.

BLOOD FATHER
Stars Mel Gibson, Erin Moriarty. "True to Gibson's trademark of playing angry or deranged characters, Link fits the mould: rebellious, hot-headed, unpredictable and fearless. He is another incarnation of Mad Max," says Louise.

THE CONFIRMATION
Stars Clive Owen, Jaeden Lieberher, Maria Bello, "A little gem of a film from Bob Nelson, the writer of the acclaimed film Nebraska (2013), The Confirmation is a charming two hander in which a single dad and his young son bond during the weekend from hell," says Louise.
