Finding Dory (2016, dir. Andrew Stanton & Angus MacLane)

Forgetful Dory goes on an epic journey when she remembers her parents. Gorgeous visuals and packed with gags, even if the short-term amnesia jokes are overloaded. A decent though unsurprising sequel with a scene-stealing octopus and Sigourney Weaver.

Viral (2016, dir. Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman)

Teens on an isolated housing development are caught up in a parasitic epidemic. Not actually a virus at all, then, but this low-key horror does the usual things well enough to maintain interest throughout by keeping its focus tight on its protagonists.

Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013, dir. James Wan)

The Lambert family aren’t free from their demons. Direct continuation from the first movie, deftly interweaving the events of that with this. Jumpscares galore in this efficient carnival sideshow flick, which delights in well-crafted boo! moments.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008, dir. David Fincher)

A man’s life runs backwards, from old age to being newborn. Button is overlong, meandering, episodic, and sometimes overly in service to its impressive VFX, but it’s nevertheless an effective though melancholy audience-pleasing tearjerker
