This Week's New Film Releases: Friday 19 August 2016

15 classification David Brent: Life On The Road


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Comedy
Director: Ricky Gervais
Running time: 95 mins

Self-proclaimed star of the factual documentary The Office, David Brent makes his big screen d├ębut. This film follows his tour around the country with his band, Foregone Conclusion, complete with a disgruntled rapper and a t-shirt gun. Love him or loathe him, Ricky Gervais has a talent for perfectly capturing the depression and delusion of an office manager's midlife crisis, and disguising it as very funny comedy. Expect plenty of cringe-inducing discomfort, misguided political correctness, face-palms, and an excellent balance of humour and pathos. Written, directed by, and starring Ricky Gervais, with Jo Hartley and Doc Brown.

pg classification Swallows and Amazons (2016)


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Family / Adventure
Director: Philippa Lowthorpe
Running time: 97 mins

This is a charmingly old-fashioned family flick based on the beloved 1930 children's classic by Arthur Ransome. Set in the sweeping and majestic landscape of the Lake District on the shimmering waters of Coniston, Swallows and Amazons has a homely, familiar, and very British feel. This film is cosy comfort food, as sweet as a cream tea, evoking that rainy Sunday 'Railway Children' feeling of a more innocent age when children had rip-roaring adventures in sailing boats and camped on remote islands.

pg classification Nine Lives


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Family / Comedy
Director: Barry Sonnenfeld
Running time: 87 mins

Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is a successful businessman, who is growing more distant from loving wife Lara (Jennifer Garner) and daughter Rebecca (Malina Weissman). For a last-minute birthday gift he finds himself in a mysterious pet shop buying a cat from Felix Perkins (Christopher Walken). But instead of selling him a cat, Perkins transforms him into one, Mr Fuzzypants. Earning a pitiful 8% from Rotten Tomatoes (on 17/08/16) Nine Lives is disappointingly zany and crass, when any film involving Spacey, Walken and a cat should be so much better!

15 classification Lights Out


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Suspense / Horror
Director: David F. Sandberg
Running time: 81 mins

In his first major directorial role, Swedish director David F. Sandberg brings us this grippingly tense thriller where a family is haunted by a spectre which is only visible in the dark. This is a fairly formulaic horror, with plenty of edge-of-the-seat suspense and wrist-grabby jump scares. Horror connoisseurs will relish this spooky scare-machine, which exploits one of our most deeply ingrained fears: the unknown that lurks in the darkness.
