Kenneth Branagh-directed multi-coloured update on the classic fairytale story.

What the critics say

  • “It’s a pity that a film that begins with such brio and originality ends on such a routine note.” - Independent
  • “Branagh has delivered a construction project so solid, so naïve, and so rigorously stripped of irony that it borders on the heroic.” - New Yorker

Get Hard

What we know

Will Ferrell plays a man jailed for insider trading, and Kevin Hart is the guy charged with helping him ‘get hard’ for the slammer.

What the critics say

  • Get Hard wants to be a brash, unapologetic look at race and class but only wrings a few laughs from those topics, mostly spending its time floundering around in a dumb plot with obvious characters.” - Deadspin
  • “It’s an absolutely horrible, amateurishly assembled comedy that is more offensive than just about anything we’ve seen lately” - The Playlist

What’s it rated?

The Seventh Son

What the critics say

  • “Women are scary and Jeff Bridges is unintelligible in this dire medieval fantasy” - The Telegraph
  • “The result is a fantastical world that often doesn’t make sense and has a rather peculiar social structure, among other things” - Screenrant
