If we’re charitable, a very mediocre CGI animated take on A Midsummer Night’s Tale from George Lucas’ tech shop, directed by Gary Rydstrom and featuring the voices of Evan Rachel Wood, Elijah Kelley, Meredith Anne Bull, Alan Cumming, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Alfred Molina and Sam Palladio.
Tight mid-budget crime caper flick, with Boston boy Ben Affleck adapting a Chuck Hogan’s source novel as well as starring in it. He leads a security van heist crew from a notorious Beantown neighbourhood, which includes pals Jeremy Renner, Slaine and Owen Burke. They take care of business, but the pressure is on.

Ridley Scott and Matt Damon give us an audience-frlendly spaceman-against-adversity drama in which a stranded astronaut must figure out how to survive alone on Mars until he can be rescued.
