1917

1917
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

  • Australia
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Damon Gameau

A documentary on scientific discoveries that can help to save mankind: the titular year is when director Gameau’s daughter will turn 25. Some of the discoveries are eye-opening and Gameau is a charming host. His is a positive voice that deserves to be heard.

Bad Boys for Life

Bad Boys For Life
  • 2020
  • US
  • 2h 3min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah
  • Cast: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Paola Núñez, Kate del Castillo, Nicky Jam, Joe Pantoliano, Thomas Brag

Mike (Smith) and Marcus (Lawrence) are back, tracking down a mysterious assassin with the help of younger colleagues. The best film in the franchise so far, it’s full of the expected action but also develops the relationship between the leads. Great fun, and the most purely entertaining movie Smith has made in a while.

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Cathy Yan
  • Cast: Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ewan McGregor, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Chris Messina, Rosie Perez, Ella Jay Basco

Harley Quinn (Robbie), having broken up with the Joker, finds herself the target of old enemies. The script could have used a few more comic putdowns, but the old-school action is solid, the setting is proudly the gutter and Robbie’s brilliant, ebullient performance as the mischievous Harley ensures a consistent sense of mischief. Top-tier comic book stuff.

  • 2h 40min
  • 12A

Brahms: The Boy II
  • 2020

  • Directed by: William Brent Bell
  • Cast: Katie Holmes, Owain Yeoman, Christopher Convery

Liza (Holmes) is the victim of a violent home invasion in her London flat, after which she moves to the countryside; but then her traumatised young son (Convery) finds a doll called Brahms, which gets a hold over him. An improvement on the original in every way, with simple but effective jump-scares and better acting.

  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Sanders
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens, Omar Sy, Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford, Colin Woodell

Buck is a dog who is kidnapped in California and then has adventures all over the north, including with loner John Thornton (Ford). Big-hearted adaptation of Jack London’s classic 1903 novella, with skilful CGI and fine action sequences and a tear-jerking turn from Ford as both actor and narrator.

Dolittle

Dolittle
  • 2020

  • Directed by: Stephen Gaghan
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Octavia Spencer, Tom Holland, Craig Robinson, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Marion Cotillard

Dr Dolittle (Downey) is grieving the death of his wife Lily when a young boy (Collett) and Lady Rose (Laniado) both come to ask him for help. The plot is a barely connected bunch of scenes, action sequences are hinted at but unrealised. The worst adaptation of Hugh Lofting’s stories to date: all this talent wasted in a big furry disappointment.

Emma

Emma
  • 2020
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Autumn de Wilde
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Josh O'Connor, Gemma Whelan

Emma (Taylor-Joy) is a self-important matchmaker blinded by snobbery and youthful hubris. It’s in keeping with the vogue for complex, unapologetic heroines but the comedy is rather hit and miss and it looks great. Taylor-Joy’s alert performance makes Emma her own.

Greed

Steve Coogan.
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
  • Cast: Steve Coogan, Isla Fisher, Asa Butterfield, David Mitchell

Richard (Coogan) is a super-rich fashion tycoon, being followed around by an official biographer (Mitchell). Winterbottom’s satire takes on too many targets and, while funny, is never clever enough to be truly satisfying, with characters appearing as plot devices rather than as people in their own right. The targets are righteous but it misses the mark.

  • 1h 54min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Kasdan
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover

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.

Like a Boss

  • Directed by: Miguel Arteta
  • Cast: Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne, Salma Hayek

Mia (Haddish) and Mel (Byrne) are best friends running a beauty company, which is then bought out by makeup wizard Claire (Hayek). Despite a good cast and director, there’s only so much that can be done with the weak script. It desperately wants to be funny, but isn’t sure how.

Little Women

Little Women

  • Directed by: Greta Gerwig
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet, Meryl Streep, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, James Norton, Louis Garrel, Chris Cooper

Adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel about a group of sisters growing up after the American Civil War. Gerwig’s affection and respect for the book is obvious but she boldly captures the transition from childhood to womanhood by playing with structure; an outstanding cast and skilful filmmaking make it a beautifully crafted tale of sisterhood, memory and authorship.

  • Directed by: Charles E. Bastien
  • Cast: Anya Cooke, Cathal J. Dodd, Isaac Emberson-Heeks

The pups have to compete in a race against dirty tricks driver Cheetah. Young fans of the franchise may be disappointed on an entire movie centred on only one character, Marshall, and there’s nothing special here to justify the cost of cinema tickets when it can be watched at home in just a few months.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog
  • 2020
  • US / Japan
  • Directed by: Jeff Fowler
  • Cast: James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter

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.

  • Directed by: Nick Bruno, Troy Quane
  • Cast: Will Smith, Tom Holland, Rashida Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Reba McEntire, Rachel Brosnahan, Karen Gillan, DJ Khaled, Masi Oka, Carla Jimenez

Lance Sterling (Smith) is a super spy who has to team up with inventor Walter (Holland) to clear his name, but is turned into a pigeon. It’s all very derivative but good fun, with a cute message about embracing your weirdness, and Smith and Holland’s terrific double act should earn them their own live-action buddy comedy.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

  • 2h 22min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JJ Abrams

Emperor Palpatine (McDiarmid) is back and building an army, so Rey (Ridley), Poe (Isaac), Finn (Boyega) and the gang go up against him and Kylo Ren (Driver). The internal and external battle of Ridley and Driver is the strongest element, with magnetic chemistry, but elsewhere it’s disappointing fan service, a film that loses its nerve.
