The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

AN­I­MALS 109 min­utes (MA15+) ★★★★☆Par­ty­ing isn’t so much a hobby as a vo­ca­tion for the two women who run fab­u­lously amok through this ar­rested com­ing-of-age drama. AN­GEL OF MINE 98 min­utes (MA15+) ★★★☆☆ Swedish ac­tress Noomi Ra­pace’s per­for­mance in this moody Aus­tralian thriller is so pow­er­ful, it throws the rest of the cast — and the world they in­habit — off balance. THE AN­GRY BIRDS MOVIE 2 97 min­utes (PG) ★★★☆☆ Di­rec­tor Thurop Van Or­man em­ploys the fran­chise’s ab­surd sling­shot de­vice with enough skill and dex­ter­ity to hit the vast ma­jor­ity of his comedic tar­gets. IT: CHAP­TER 2 169 min­utes (MA15+) ★★★☆☆ Slith­er­ing eye­balls, hu­man­headed spi­ders, ba­bies with bat wings … the Loser’s Club’s long-dreaded but hotly an­tic­i­pated re­match with the evil clown Pen­ny­wise is like Dali on steroids. THE KITCHEN 103 min­utes (MA15+) ★1/2 Three mob­sters’ wives take over the fam­ily busi­ness when their hus­bands are jailed. There’s not much heat in The Kitchen, but it still burns a strong en­sem­ble cast of Elisabeth Moss, Melissa McCarthy and Tif­fany Had­dish. AN­GEL HAS FALLEN 121 min­utes (MA15+) ★★ 1/2 Hav­ing saved the POTUS from two previous as­sas­si­na­tion at­tempts, Mike Ban­ning is look­ing a bit rough around the edges. But he can still run rings around his ad­ver­saries. A DOG’S JOUR­NEY 109 min­utes (PG) ★★1/2 The tricks are fa­mil­iar, and the an­thro­po­mor­phic di­a­logue is pretty ruff, but once you agree to roll over, this shaggy dog se­quel scratches all the des­ig­nated spots. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOL­LY­WOOD 161 min­utes (MA15+) ★★★1/2 A de­li­ciously pulpy, fan-boy fairy­tale about cow­boys of all kinds. Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the Golden Age of Hol­ly­wood stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Mar­got Rob­bie.
