Thor Ragnarok

What we know

After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is investigating the mysterious Infinity Stones. But the goddess of death Hela (Cate Blanchett) has invaded his home on Asgard and is about to bring about the end of days known as Ragnarok – unless Thor and his pals Hulk, Loki and Valkyrie can stop her.

What the critics say

  • “The whole movie is a grab-bag of insanity so off-the-chain hilarious that you stick with it even when the convoluted plot goes haywire.” – RollingStone
  • “While Ragnarok is exploring this wacky place and its inhabitants—including a lovably weird rock monster voiced by Waititi, whom I want to see in a buddy comedy alongside Steve Zahn’s Bad Ape—the movie has gleeful bounce. It’s an arch and winking cousin, or companion piece, to Guardians of the Galaxy, with a tone and verve all its own.” – VanityFair

Jigsaw

What we know

They’re still making Saw films, apparently. This is the eighth installment of the series. With bodies piling up, the evidence points to John Kramer, the Jigsaw killer, but he’s been dead for 10 years…

What the critics say

  • “Only time will tell whether audiences are still engaged with the brand, but having seen Jigsaw we can confirm that franchise fans will find a lot to entertain them.” – The Hollywood News
  • “The Spierigs give us gore aplenty, but nothing that can compare to a pit of hypodermic needles or the unflinching brutality of hacking off one’s own foot. Jigsaw may have all its pieces in place, but it lacks the nerve to cut to the quick.” – South China Morning Post

What we know

The singer Grace Jones has always been larger-than-life. This documentary paints a picture of

What the critics say

  • “Asexual, androgynous and alien-like, at an extraordinarily well-preserved 69, Jones remains a force of nature with a predatory stage presence and a tangled family history.” – RTÉ
  • “ She has elaborate headgear that obscures her face, making her look all the more like an icon, or a weapon – and Fiennes’s film hints that this mannerism may be derived from hats favoured in the churches of her Jamaican childhood.” – The Guardian
