Frozen 2 is the big one this weekend.
Frozen 2 ****
Frozen 2 is guaranteed to melt even the coldest of hearts.
Set three years after the events of the smash-hit first film, the storyline and treatment mirrors the growing maturity of the franchise's fervent fanbase.
It doesn't fall foul of sequel syndrome, bringing these much-loved characters on a satisfying and thrillingly realised adventure, packed full of stunning animation and earwormy-anthems you're sure to be humming leaving the cinema. Read our full review here.
La Belle Époque *****
La Belle Époque's two screenings at the IFI's recent French Film Festival sold out in advance. Daniel Auteuil's sixty-something-year-old cartoonist steps back to May 16, 1974, the day he met his future wife, played by Fanny Ardant.
Sadly, the marriage has gone very stale indeed, but will it revive again in the deliberately staged recreation?
This is magnificent escapism. Read our full review here.
21 Bridges ***1/2
During a citywide manhunt for cop killers, NYPD detective Andre Davis - played by Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman - puts Manhattan on lockdown, with all 21 bridges closed to keep the suspects on the island.
Boseman puts in a solid performance, as do the likes of JK Simmons, Sienna Miller and Taylor Kitsch respectively as an NYPD Captain, a detective and one of the crooks.
It's that sort of film: good but not great. Read our full review here.
A Dog Called Money ***
Half travelogue, half album diary, this new documentary film by Irish photojournalist Seamus Murphy documents how PJ Harvey, one of the most intriguing rock artists of the past three decades, researched and recorded her most recent album The Hope Six Demolition Project.
Murphy, who has won numerous awards for his war photography and who shot short films for each of the 12 tracks on Harvey's 2011 album Let England Shake, followed the singer as she traveled to Kosovo, Kabul and Washington DC as she sought fresh inspiration. Read our full review here
Marriage Story *****
Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson have never been better as Charlie and Nicole. They are rising stars in New York's indie theatre, who are entering into the initial bargaining process after agreeing to split up.
Matters become complicated when Nicole takes their son Henry and moves back in with her mother and sister in LA and sets about rekindling her movie career. Back in New York, Charlie finally realises what he is losing but his decision to conduct the divorce and his visiting rights with Henry coast to coast turn proceedings increasingly bitter, callous and personal.
Writer-director Noah Baumbach has based Marriage Story on his own experiences with his former wife Jennifer Jason Leigh and he is unsparing in his depiction of how two people who were once very much in love can, in slow incremental shifts, grow to despise each other. Read our full review here.
Le Mans '66 ****
First up, don't let the fact that this film is about motor-racing put you off. Le Mans '66 is far too good to be pigeonholed 'for petrol heads only'.
There's an almost old-fashioned feel to director James Mangold's (interviewed below) latest, following on from the superb Logan. It's got a couple of A-listers - Matt Damon, Christian Bale - in the lead roles; it's a story about people - real people at that - and there's more CGI in your left foot than there is in the entire movie.
The racing sequences are fantastic, as Mangold conveys the intense mix of danger and desire that provides the adrenaline rush for the drivers. Read our full review here.
The Report ***
Hot on the heels of engaging satire The Laundromat comes The Report, also the fruit of a Steven Soderbergh/Scott Z Burns collaboration.
However, both films could not be more different: one is a skittish farce, the other a serious procedural drama about CIA-sanctioned torture.
In this reasonably engaging exercise, Adam Driver plays Senate Intelligence Committee staffer Dan Jones, who is effectively taking on the CIA. Read our full review here.
Last Christmas **1/2
Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, A Simple Favor) defended his latest Yuletide offering online by saying "all of our hearts were in the right place", and in many respects this movie is stuffed with endless amounts of warmth.
Like a tasty mulled wine, the ingredients for the perfect movie are all there: it's inspired by a sweet Wham! Classic; it stars and is co-written by the ever-punchy Emma Thompson, and it plays out with deliciously talented leads in Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding.
And yet, it doesn't deck the halls for a true Christmas classic. Read our full review here.
