The Revenant:

Leonardo DiCaprio, as DiCaprio does, gives this film all he has got, and more, as he crawls, strips, grunts and grates, and is butchered and butchers in return, for revenge. Three stars.

Room:

Mark Ruffalo's film is a gripping portrait of what happens when institutions decide they are bigger than the people who make them. Four-and-a-half stars.

Spotlight:

The first part of Room ends with Jack's flight -- almost too quickly. The rest, dealing with their life in the world outside, is more predictable, more practical. Four stars.

Bridge of Spies:

"What defines us both as American? It is the Constitution, that is the only rule book." That's James B Donovan speaking, and once again Steven Spielberg hits the nail on the head with a film so politically astute for its times. Three-and-a-half-stars.

Mad Max: Fury Road:

Many old Mad Max fans are heartbroken at Charlize Theron being the real hero of this film. Nicholas Hoult is the closest in the acting department to Theron as Joe's "war boy" chasing imagined glory, while Tom Hardy is all lips. four stars.

The Martian:

Glee is the underlying narrative of from this surprisingly optimistic space tale the director who gave us Alien. 'Man stranded on Mars' is just the setting. Three-and-a-half-stars.
