This should have been one of the films of the year.
The real-life 1976 rescue by Israeli special forces of the hostages aboard an Air France plane in Uganda has been brought to the screen a number of times, with Victory at Entebbe, Raid on Entebbe and Operation Thunderbolt in the recall of many who spent too much time watching the box in the Seventies and Eighties.
This latest dramatisation sees Elite Squad and Narcos director José Padilha assemble a great cast for what looked (from the trailer) like a story about to be brilliantly told.
There is plenty to admire, but Entebbe ultimately doesn't deserve the must-see accolade. Read our full review here.
Breaking In **
The award for Thriller Letdown of 2017 went to Unforgettable.
Breaking In should see off all the competition this year.
For those suffering withdrawal symptoms after the end of the recent series of Room to Improve, there's a property fix on offer here with a des res that's the real star of the show.
You'll be green with envy but never white with fear. Read our full review here.
It's a neat idea for a dystopian crime flick set in the ye olde "near future": Everything we see is recorded and archived in a central library accessed by police when a crime is committed. Furthermore, everything and everybody we see has become a head wrecking miasma of drop down menus packed with information, a Google of the central nervous system that would send the Zuck and admen into a tizzy of delight.
It’s a nightmare scenario for sure and one that’s all too feasible in our world of info overload, surveillance capitalism and tech addiction. Read our full review here.
Sherlock Gnomes **
The follow-up to 2011's Gnomeo & Juliet is packed with fun and charm but it disappoints with a script that feels sloppy and hastily flung together.
The cute story sees lovebirds (voiced by James McAvoy and Emily Blunt), and the rest of their much-loved lawn friends from the first outing shuffling from Stratford-Upon-Avon to a new garden abode in London. Just as everyone is adjusting to their new lives, almost all of the garden trinkets mysteriously disappear. Only Gnomeo and Juliet are left behind to save the day.
The duo call on gnome-finding detective Sherlock Gnomes (Johnny Depp), and his trusty but overlooked partner Dr. Watson, (voiced by Chiwetel Ejiofor) to help track down their loved ones. Together, they....Read more here.
I Feel Pretty **1/2
The premise of this humorous but ultimately annoying film couldn't be more straightforward. Amy Schumer plays a woman who doesn't believe she's beautiful.
All that changes in this body-shaming version of Big when Schumer's Renee Bennett gets a bang on the head while attending an exercise class. She wakes up convinced she looks amazing, and that gives her a massive confidence boost.
By any barometer other than the barmiest of body fascism, Amy Schumer is a very attractive woman. And if you think she's fat, well then you're stupid. Read our full review here.
Lean on Pete ****
Lean on Pete is a faithful adaptation of Willy Vlautin's poignant 2010 novel of the same name, a moving portrait of a troubled youth in search of a home and shelter.
Charley (Charlie Plummer), a sensitive young teenager, lives with his shiftless, beer-guzzling dad in what is little more than a glorified shack on the outskirts of Portland, Oregon. His mother lit off when he was a kid; the family of two is bound to fragment. His dad has a new girlfriend, who is separated, not divorced - therein lies the trouble, but we will not spoil.

Talk about an early delivery...
Tully really has no business being released in cinemas in May. Over six months out from awards season, even though Charlize Theron, director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody are also on board as producers? Seriously, who decided now was the time for this big screen bow?
Let's hope voters have long memories, because this gritty and gooey comedy-drama about motherhood - reuniting the Juno team of Reitman and Cody with their Young Adult star Theron - is way too good to be filed under 'what might have been'. Read our full review here.
A Cambodian Spring ****
Derry director Chris Kelly believes that anyone with any sense of moral justice would be angered by the events depicted in his documentary, A Cambodian Spring, which recalls the forced evictions of 18,000 residents living by Boeung Kak Lake.
Ultimately, Chris Kelly wants to dispel despair and raise hope through his remarkable film. "When people are together and united and they have solidarity they are much stronger than when they are on their own and divided," he says, referring to the Boeung Kak Lake residents.
