12a classification Star Trek: Beyond


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Sci-fi / Adventure
Director: Justin Lin
Running time: 120 mins

Critics are raving about the 13th Star Trek film! The Starship Enterprise is attacked by Krall (the wonderful Idris Elba), a reptilian villain who derives energy by sucking the life out of other living beings. When the Enterprise crash-lands on a strange, distant planet, the crew are marooned and separated in an alien wilderness. Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the crew must unite and fight Krall, and find a way off the planet. Simon Pegg, an avid Trekkie, joins Doug Jung as writer and brilliantly reprises his role as Scotty. The budget has increased, the writing has improved, and the cast have wonderful chemistry.

pg classification The BFG


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Adventure / Animation / Family
Director: Steven Spielberg
Running time: 117 mins

Stephen Spielberg returns to direct this enchanting and visually stunning version of Roald Dahl's classic. The Big Friendly Giant looms before us in a beautifully animated dreamlike fantasy, but still retains an old-fashioned charm which is sadly lacking in so many animated films. Like all the best dreams, The BFG is immersive and imaginative, and leaves you feeling faintly nostalgic with a warm feeling in your tummy, with plenty for children and parents alike to enjoy.

18 classification Chevalier


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Comedy / Drama / Foreign Language
Director: Athina Rachel Tsangari
Running time: 105 mins

Fantastically absurd Greek comedy revealing how male friendship can become a battle of egos to the point of surreal hilarity and divergence. This study of men behaving weirdly follows six men on a luxury yacht in the Aegean Sea, who embark on a series of manhood-measuring contests to determine who is the 'best in general' or 'Chevalier'. Directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari, (producer of the equally strange 2009 film, Dogtooth) brings a uniquely female perspective on the folly of male competitive egotism, in this sensitive yet silly comic spectacle. Perhaps it's as simple as that, or perhaps we can draw out an allegory about modern Greece. One thing is certain: Tsangari wants us to draw our own conclusions.
