Back to the Future Part 2

Back to the Future Part 2
  • 1989
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Robert Zemeckis
  • Cast: Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Thomas F Wilson, Lea Thompson, Elisabeth Shue

Finishing with a big tease sequence of highlights for the mid-1990 scheduled Back to the Future Part 3, this could be the longest movie trailer in Hollywood history. Once again Michael has to outfox Biff, this time zooming forwards as well as backwards in the time machine. Directed and played with terrific verve, 'BTF2' moves so fast from one set-piece to the next that there's no time to reflect on the basic ridiculousness of the plot.

Back to the Future Part 3
  • 1990
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Robert Zemeckis
  • Cast: Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Mary Steenburgen, Thomas F Wilson, Lea Thompson

After the elongated trailer of 'BTF2' we're back in 1885 for the third and absolutely final instalment of the series, in which Michael has to face up to longstanding enemy Biff and save the Doc from certain death, except that the latter is much more interested in falling for Mary Steenburgen. The end result is not quite a bad film, but, as with almost every other sequel of a sequel there's an overall slackness which prevents it from lifting off in the way that it should. In almost every sense, we've been here before.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ryan Coogler
  • Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis

T’Challa (Boseman) ascends to the throne of Wakanda after his father is killed, and he and former lover Nakia (Nyong’o) must avenge the theft of an artefact made of Wakanda’s precious vibranium. Ground-breaking superhero story with awesome action; Boseman is agile and impressive, but the female contingent is superb and sombre themes sit comfortably alongside comedy.

  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

GoodFellas
  • 1990
  • US
  • 2h 25min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Braco, Paul Sorvino.

Liotta plays Henry Hill, a real-life mafioso, with De Niro as his mentor in crime. And while the bullets, fists and carving knives fly, Scorsese brings us back to that unavoidable question – yes, it's glamorous and lucrative to live this way, but can anyone really live with the consequences? Winner of BAFTA awards for best film, director and screenplay, and a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Joe Pesci.

  • 2h 10min

The end has arrived for Harry and happily the last installment really satisfies with its breakneck pacing, breathtaking set-pieces and a genuinely heart-warming ending.

In the sequel to the 2017 reboot, old-timers Eddie (DeVito) and Milo (Glover) join the teens in an another video game adventure. Johnson and Awkwafina steal their scenes, although Gillan has to do too much exposition before she can get going, and while it’s a bit too similar to its predecessor it’s amiable festive fun.

The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
  • 2003
  • US / NZ
  • 3h 30min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Cast: Elijah Wood, Billy Boyd, Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Viggo Mortensen, Christopher Lee

A remarkable end to a remarkable series of films, the journey of Frodo, Sam and Gollum is the pièce de résistance of the trilogy. The tension-filled journey forces both Gollum and Sam to show their true colours as Frodo suffers under the burden of the ring. All around is war as Aragorn fights to reclaim what is rightfully his. Jackson's vision is awesome. The Return of the King is some kind of beautiful, some kind of masterpiece. Unmissable.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
  • 2001
  • New Zealand / US
  • 2h 58min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Cast: Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Orlando Bloom, Liv Tyler, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Bean, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Ian Holm

At long last, a sword and sorcery adventure that really delivers the goods. JRR Tolkien's great achievement was to create an English mythology, located in a fantastical yet believable world. Jackson's great achievement is to bring the author's 1000 page tome to life, not merely realising the fantastic elements with special effects spectacle (though they are 'very' spectacular), but through storytelling flare and marvellous performances from his cast. Visceral and breathtakingly dramatic, The Fellowship of the Ring is an inspired labour of love and a monumental achievement.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
  • 2002
  • US / New Zealand
  • 2h 59min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Cast: Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Sean Astin, Viggo Mortensen, Andy Serkis, Liv Tyler, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Orlando Bloom, Bernard Hill, Christopher Lee, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, Karl Urban, David Wenham, Brad Dourif

The second part of Jackson's ambitious three-part adaptation of JRR Tolkien's epic fantasy adventure might lack the storytelling verve of the first film, but in terms of spectacle it takes blockbuster filmmaking to the next level. Continuing where 'The Fellowship of the Ring' left off, without any recap of the story so far, 'The Two Towers' follows three separate plotlines: Frodo's trek to Modor to destroy the ring, his fellow Hobbits' meeting with the Ents (walking, talking trees) and the human/elf/dwarf combo Aragon, Legolas and Gimili's part in the siege of the human stronghold Helm's Deep by the evil wizard Sauraman's 10,000-strong army. The latter provides the hour-long climax to the film, and it's an awesome thing to behold. But Frodo's meeting with the ring's previous owner, Gollum, also impresses – here's a fully computer animated character that generates as much emotion as any of the living performers. The film suffers from being the second act of Tolkien's tale, but for Jackson's three hour film vision, there's no way around that.

Notting Hill

Notting Hill
  • 1999
  • UK / US
  • 2h 4min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Roger Michell
  • Cast: Hugh Grant, Julia Roberts, Richard McCabe

In a now prohibitively expensive part of London, Grant's lowly bookseller literally bumps into Roberts' film star. Thereafter, they engage in romantic pursuits and eventually put class and culture clashes aside to live happily ever after. The leads don't strain themselves, but Richard Curtis' script is filled with witty jokes, particularly about national stereotypes.

  • Cast: Eva Green, Zélie Boulant, Matt Dillon

Sarah (Green) is a French astronaut preparing to go to Mars, whose schedule is punctuated by visits from her daughter (Boulant). A heartrending astronaut drama that eschews spectacle and focuses on the mother-daughter relationship, with superb performances from all. Beautiful and insightful.

The Shawshank Redemption
  • 1994
  • US
  • 2h 23min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Frank Darabont
  • Cast: Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman

Banged up for a crime he didn't commit (ain't they all?) quiet man Robbins plans a slow but effective revenge on the unnecessarily harsh prison regime. Freeman excels as the fellow con with an uncanny knack for procuring desired items. The film is certainly overlong, but the apocryphal feel to the storytelling and the period detail are well handled in what is, ultimately, a very fine movie indeed.

Sonic (Schwartz) finds himself alone on Earth, on the run from the authorities, with villain Dr Robotnik (Carrey) also in pursuit. A derivative script and a rather tired performance from Carrey aside, it’s got disarming charm and cheek and Sonic is a cutely cartoonish hero.

  • 1980

  • Directed by: Irvin Kershner
  • Written by: George Lucas, Leigh Brackett, Lawrence Kasdan
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, David Prowse, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Frank Oz

Arguably the best Star Wars film, the middle part of the original trilogy is packed with drama, tension, humour and a belter of a cliffhanger. Much of its impact has been lost to familiarity (that twist) but it's a masterpiece, impeccably directed by George Lucas' old UCLA tutor Kershner.

  • 1h 47min

In 2029 machines have all but conquered the planet but a saviour is at hand in the form of a new human leader. The machines respond by sending Schwarzenegger's cyborg back in time to 1984 on a mission to kill the future leader's mother. Inventive, excitingly paced science fiction adventure with a notable performance from Arnie in his first villainous role.

  • Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong

In a reprogrammed role that said much about his changed image since the first movie, Arnie becomes the underdog fighting to protect mother and child from another more advanced cyborg. With an element of uncontrived human compassion lurking throughout the gloriously expensive action sequences, as Schwarzenegger's cyborg develops human feelings, this is more than just a $100 million fairground ride.
