This Week's New Film Releases: Friday 26 August 2016

15 classification Bad Moms


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Comedy
Director: Scott Moore,Jon Lucas
Running time: 101 mins

Mila Kunis stars as Amy, who seemingly has everything, with her beautiful suburban home, handsome husband, successful career and two overachieving children. But overworked and underappreciated, and on a day when everything just seems to go wrong, she finally loses it. Over a boozy bonding session, Amy, along with Kiki (Kristen Bell) and Carla (Kathryn Hahn), vow to stop trying to be the 'perfect mom', and instead to be... Bad Moms. In a year of pretty male-dominated blockbusters, this raunchy flick about miscreant matriarchs makes a welcome change. However, while the chemistry between the three leading ladies is solid, the film is littered with cheap jokes and the characters are somewhat cartoonised. Still, it's a laugh, and the perfect 'night-in-with-the-girls' movie.

15 classification War Dogs


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Crime / Comedy
Director: Todd Phillips
Running time: 114 mins

This is the true story of two friends, Efraim (Jonah Hill) and David (Miles Teller), who land a government arms dealing contract in their early twenties. As their fortune grows, the duo find themselves in increasingly dangerous scenarios in warzones all over the world, meeting each one with bro-tastic one-liners and good old American bravado. Directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover), War Dogs feels rather too glib and goofball for the subject matter, leading to a film which not so much satirises, but appears to glorify the career of a person who makes money out of war.

15 classification Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Comedy
Director: Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone
Running time: 86 mins

This parody of empty-headed stardom follows fictional hip-hop frontman Connor (Andy Samberg). Connor is brash and egotistical, filming a documentary of the exuberant life which his global fame has afforded him. This mockumentary follows the hero through the ups and downs of the life of a pop star. As his second album crashes and burns with the critics, Connor does whatever he can to stay in the spotlight. With a host of all-star cameos from the likes of RZA, Snoop Dogg, Simon Cowell and Ringo Starr (and many more), this flick largely succeeds in satirising the shallowness of celebrity.

Genre: Drama
Director: Carrie Cracknell
Running time: 150 mins

The wonderful Helen McCrory (Penny Dreadful, Peaky Blinders) returns to the National Theatre on the Southbank for one of the most captivating roles in contemporary drama.

McCrory, alongside the brilliant Tom Burke conveys this classic post-war drama beautifully; a story of passion and loneliness, love and loss.
