Miles Ahead

2016, USA, 100 MINS, 18A

Dir: Don Cheadle
Starring: Ewan McGregor, Don Cheadle

It’s set in the late 1970s, when Davis, hailed as a brilliant innovator, has stopped playing and is nose-deep in cocaine. He lives in a brownstone in Manhattan where a pushy reporter named Dave Brill (Ewan McGregor), purporting to be from Rolling Stone magazine, shows up for an interview. Davis can’t get rid of him, so he uses him as a driver to take him around town.

 

They start at Columbia studios where Davis, armed with a loaded pistol, wants to collect a $20,000 cheque his says the company owes him. Later, they take part in that car chase, an odd couple who bicker and bond — Davis wanting little but money and drugs, Brill looking for a story and a foothold. - Jay Stone, The Ex-Press

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 3-D

2016, USA, 151 MINS, 14A

Dir: Zack Snyder
Starring: Amy Adams, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Diane Lane

Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) clash over differing philosophies about what kind of heroism is needed to protect the world, while the public they're defending is becoming increasingly mindful of the damage that superheroes and masked vigilantes cause. However, the duo are soon forced to confront an even greater threat created by nefarious billionaire Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also co-stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred the butler, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. - Jack Rodgers, Rovi

Eye in the Sky

2016, UK, 102 MINS, 14A

Dir: Gavin Hood
Starring: Alan Rickman, Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul

A fascinating look at how our leaders wage war now, Eye in the Sky takes us into the control rooms and shipping containers where military personnel make decisions that could result in the deaths of people thousands of miles away. Featuring Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, and Alan Rickman, the latest from Tsotsi director Gavin Hood is enormously pertinent and eerily entertaining.

The goal of British-led Operation Cobra is the capture of Aisha Al Hady (Lex King), a radicalized British citizen who has joined the Somali terrorist group Al Shabab. But their "capture" objective is changed to "kill" when the indomitable Colonel Katherine Powell (Mirren), who has been tracking Al Hady for years, learns that Al Shabab is planning suicide attacks. Nevada-based drone operator Steve Watts (Paul) targets Al Shabab's Nairobi safehouse but reports back to London that a nine-year-old girl has entered the kill zone. Given the value of the target, could a civilian child be chalked up to collateral damage? Is the potential political fallout worth the risk?

Written by Guy Hibbert with an unerring ear for military doublespeak, Eye in the Sky becomes blackly comic as the officers' concern with optics sparks a protracted game of bureaucratic pass-the-buck, with everyone "referring up" the chain of command, through the UK Foreign Secretary (who has food poisoning) and the US Foreign Secretary (busy attending a ping pong tournament in China) all the way up to the Prime Minister. Shades of Dr. Strangelove abound — though, as with the Kubrick classic, Eye in the Sky is only as funny as it is because the truths it arrives at are so very grave and resonant. - TIFF

Everybody Wants Some!!

2016, USA, 104 MINS, 14A

Dir: Richard Linklater
Starring: Blake Jenner, Tyler Hoechlin, Wyatt Russell

We begin with Jake Bradford (Blake Jenner) pulling into the parking lot of the fictitious Southeast Texas State University in August 1980, ready to start his freshman year on a baseball scholarship. The rest of the movie takes place in the three days leading up to his first class, as Jake gets hazed in “voluntary” (i.e. mandatory) practices, gets to know his teammates with whom he shares a house, and catches the eye of a theater student named Beverly (Zoey Deutch) who introduces him to a world outside the jock circles he usually travels in. - Kristian Lin, FW Weekly

The Neverending Story

1996, 94 MINS, G

Dir: Wolfgang Petersen
Starring: Noah Hathaway, Barret Oliver, Tami Stronach

On his way to school, Bastian (Barret Oliver) ducks into a bookstore to avoid bullies. Sneaking away with a book called "The Neverending Story," Bastian begins reading it in the school attic. The novel is about Fantasia, a fantasy land threatened by "The Nothing," a darkness that destroys everything it touches. The kingdom needs the help of a human child to survive. When Bastian reads a description of himself in the book, he begins to wonder if Fantasia is real and needs him to survive.
