Will have geek boys and girls gurning all the way to the IMAX

Avengers: Age of Ultron

More camp drollery and action from the Marvel stable as the gang take on another new threat of global annihilation.

  • The brothers dance and hug each other on hearing the news that they will be travelling to America

    The Good Lie

    The Good Lie is based on events that occurred in Sudan in the 1980s, when thousands of young people were orphaned by the effects of Northern Militia air-strikes. 3,600 boys and girls would eventually end up in the USA, thanks to a humanitarian programme.

  • Russell Brand

    The Emperor's New Clothes

    Russell Brand puts the boot in on the greedy in this documentary about the increasing disparity between the obscenely rich and the rest of us.

  • You'll be doing well if another film moves you more this year


    You'll be doing well if another film moves you more this year.

  • It should have been a series

    Child 44

    Red missed.

  • Pomp and perennials

    A Little Chaos

    This lovely looking but overly allegorical tale of intrigue and garden design in the court of King Louis XIV badly needs pruning

  • Mikael Persbrandt as Peter and Mads Mikkelsen as his brother Jon in The Salvation.

    The Salvation

    The Salvation is a brilliantly-realised revenge drama which moves fluently through a series of endlessly clever twists and turns in and around about the remote Wild West settlement of Black Creek.

  • About a boy

    Cobain: Montage of Heck

    This authorised film about the life of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain sifts through his personal and family archive to create a gripping and unflinching portrait of a talented man undone by success and personal demons.

  • Keanu Reeves as John Wick

    John Wick

    Keanu Reeves is back to his all-action best as John Wick, a retired criminal tempted back to the dark side when everything he loves is taken away from him.

  • Ethan Hawke and Jennifer Jones in Good Kill

    Good Kill

    Good Kill, starring Ethan Hawke in top form as a tormented drone pilot and family man, is an inspired movie that should be seen for its thought-provoking take on US military involvement abroad

  • Amell and Whitman bring depth to their characters

    The DUFF

    Don't let the title put you off.

  • Vin Diesel in F&F7

    Fast and Furious 7

    Back for more high octane spills and thrills, the new F&F even comes with some added poignancy following the death of charismatic cast member Paul Walker

  • Crowe has gone behind the lens to make his feature directorial debut

    The Water Diviner

    Russell Crowe has gone behind the lens to make his feature directorial debut. It shouldn't be a one-off - he does more things right than wrong with The Water Diviner.

  • Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts

    While We're Young

    This wry comedy about a forty-something New York couple who befriend a young hipster couple is full of sly and very funny observations about the generation gap but it nearly throws it all away in an unsatisfying final act

  • Far more compelling than many a film with household names and 1,000 times the budget

    I Used to Live Here

    A very important Irish film, I Used to Live Here's reach needs to extend far beyond cinemas into as many homes, schools, colleges and community centres as possible.
