James Bond 007 - Skyfall - 2012
Daniel Craig's third outing sees 007 left for dead...only to rise again in pursuit of global cyber terrorist Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem). Bond's travels to take him from Shanghai to Macau but it's back in Britain where the rather-too-well connected Silva is wreaking havoc. It's emerging that M (Judi Dench) is his prime target and an audacious bomb attack on London's MI6 HQ shows that Silva means business. Director Sam Mendes makes a daring departure from the well-worn Bond template to fashion a first-rate thriller carefully balancing quips with carnage. Craig is now totally at home in a role that recognises its age limitations and the taut story lets fly with a couple of genuine shocks for Bond's 50th birthday.
Jack the Giant Slayer - 2012
Fee fye foe fum, farm boy Jack (Nicholas Hoult) has a f-f-f-frighteningly big problem when his poor business sense leads to an invasion of man-eating giants from above the clouds. After watching his home disappear atop a beanstalk five miles high - taking the fair Princess Isabelle (Eleanor Tomlinson) with it - Jack joins the chief Palace guard (Ewan McGregor) on a perilous adventure to bring her back. A plot thickened with greed, revenge and plenty of ground bones helps X-Men director Bryan Singer add some fresh (and ugly) twists to the much-loved bedtime story.
Promised Land - 2012
Good Will Hunting director Gus Van Sant and co-writing star Matt Damon re-team for this cautionary environmental tale. Oil company salesman Steve Butler (Damon) uses his small-town background to his advantage when he persuades poor rural towns to sign over the mineral rights beneath their homes for the controversial 'fracking' natural gas extraction method. However, he doesn't get it all his own way when the people of McKinley begin to have second thoughts after local high school teacher Hal Holbrook raises concerns. Nicely acted with Van Sant in mainstream, conventional mode, this has interesting things to say about corporate responsibility and the moral clout of local communities.
Love Is All You Need - 2012
Pierce Brosnan is back on romantic Italian soil as Philip, an unsociable English widower whose son is getting married at the old family villa in Sorrento. On the way, he bumps into the bride’s mother Ida (Trine Dyrholm), who could do with a break after finishing chemotherapy - and catching her husband with another woman. Questions of happiness, loyalty and family all come to the fore in this alluring but refreshingly frank love story from Danish Oscar-winner Susanne Bier.
Django Unchained - 2012
Quentin Tarantino takes the traditional Western, gives it an anti-slavery spin and dips the whole Antebellum caboodle in a bucket of blood. Jamie Foxx plays Django, a slave set free and recruited as his right-hand man by dentist-turned-bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). They're on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers...but their path eventually takes them to Django's wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) and her brutal master, plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Jarring, bloody violence is smoothly shackled to whip-smart dialogue in Tarantino's inspired reheating of the Spaghetti Western.
Bachelorette - 2012
Three friends - Regan (Kirsten Dunst), Gena (Lizzy Caplan) and Katie (Isla Fisher) - are asked to be bridesmaids at a wedding of a girl they used to ridicule back in high school (Rebel Wilson). Led by ruthless alpha female Regan, dim-bulb Katie and angrily jilted Gena join forces to - by virtue of a dress-related disaster - make their victim's best day her worst. No subject is off-limits as far as gags go, including drug use, bulimia and abortions from a terrible trio who would make the Sex and the City girls take holy orders
