The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club
  • 1985
  • US
  • 1h 37min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Hughes
  • Written by: John Hughes
  • Cast: Emilio Estevez, Paul Gleason, Anthony Michael Hall, John Kapelos, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy

The film that helped launch the Brat Pack, which ain't a compliment. Five American teenagers – punk, swot, nut case, etc – spend a Saturday afternoon in school detention, where they go through a tribal bonding experience while spewing all manner of teen angst: it's all my parents fault and other old chestnuts.

The Children Act

The Children Act
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Richard Eyre
  • Cast: Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Fionn Whitehead

Fiona (Thompson) is a High Court judge who finds herself becoming involved with a Jehovah’s Witness teenager (Whitehead) who refuses a blood transfusion for his leukaemia. Heavy-handed adaptation by McEwan of his own novel; not entirely convincing but Eyre brings out fine performances.

Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc Forster
  • Cast: Hayley Atwell, Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings

Christopher Robin (McGregor) is a workaholic who neglects his family, until he re-encounters his childhood toys. Whimsical and unoriginal back-to-childhood tale, not saved by McGregor’s dexterity or Cummings’s lovely voice work as Pooh.

Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians
  • 2018
  • US

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jon M Chu
  • Cast: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh

When Chinese-American college professor Rachel (Wu) meets the family of boyfriend Nick (Golding), she discovers that they’re incredibly rich. A fairly stale star-crossed lovers’ story is refreshed by a cast of East Asian stars and entertaining local colour.

Despicable Me

Despicable Me
  • 2010
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Elsie Fisher, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Julie Andrews, Pierre Coffin

Universal's latest offering is a good-humoured tale of a curmudgeonly aspiring supervillain (Carrell) whose wicked ways are transformed when the three orphaned girls he adopts to help him steal the moon end up capturing his heart instead. Engaging, if not quite a classic.

Hotel Transylvania 3

Hotel Transylvania 3
  • 2018
  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: Genndy Tartakovsky
  • Cast: Adam Sandler, Kathryn Hahn, Andy Samberg

Third instalment of the Hotel Transylvania franchise, which sees daughter Mavis (Gomez) take on the role of overbearing parent when her father Dracula (Sandler) falls for the ship's captain Ericka (Hahn) whilst on a monsters-only cruise. A funny and good-humoured flick, with plenty of goofy gags and musical numbers that'll please the whole family.

The House with a Clock in its Walls

The House with a Clock in its Walls
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Eli Roth
  • Cast: Cate Blanchett, Jack Black, Owen Vaccaro

Lewis (Vaccaro) is an orphan sent to live with his mysterious uncle Jonathan (Black). Roth takes a break from gore to turn this children’s book into family fare, and it’s atmospheric, but lacks charm; still, Black is great casting and the themes of grief and bravery are handled well.

The Incredibles 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

An art teacher struggles to make his father change his lifestyle after a second heart attack.

The King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
  • 2018

  • PG
  • Directed by: Ol Parker
  • Cast: Christine Baranski, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Julie Walters, Alexa Davies, Pierce Brosnan, Jeremy Irvine, Colin Firth, Hugh Skinner, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Dylan, Cher, Dominic Cooper, Andy García

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

  • China/US
  • 1h 53min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jon Turteltaub
  • Cast: Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Cliff Curtis

Jonas (Statham) is a diver who’s brought to an underwater research facility to rescue people from a sinister threat—the titular giant shark. It’s a $150m B-movie; the creature itself is no masterpiece, and the plot is ridiculous, but Statham carries off the outlandish premise with a confident performance in a role he was born to play.

Mile 22
  • 2018
  • US
  • 18
  • Directed by: Peter Berg
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Lauren Cohan, John Malkovich, Ronda Rousey, Iko Uwais

James Silva (Wahlberg) leads a crack CIA team to transport a government witness who's been targeted for assassination. Much double-crossing, fistfights and absurd technobabble, and while Wahlberg is over-intense, the physical stuff is well-handled by Rousey and Uwais. Straight-up, boneheaded action.

  • US
  • 1h 31min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin
  • Written by: Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock

Prequel to the Despicable Me films, in which the pill-shaped, dungaree-sporting critters attach themselves to villain Scarlett Overkill (Bullock) and go to London to steal the Crown Jewels. The minions are as cute as ever but they seem funnier in support, and Bullock's character is one-dimensional.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout
  • 2018

  • Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill, Tom Cruise

Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is back for the franchise's sixth entry, and teams up with old IMF colleagues Luther (Rhames), Benji (Pegg), fellow spy Ilsa (Ferguson) and CIA enforcer August Walker (Cavill) to track down some stolen plutonium. Despite a few cliches, Cruise goes above and beyond with his stunt work in this first-class summer blockbuster that's guaranteed to leave you on the edge of your seat.

The Nun

The Nun

  • Directed by: Corin Hardy
  • Cast: Bonnie Aarons, Taissa Farmiga, Charlotte Hope

Two Vatican investigators and a local (Bichir, Farmiga and Bloquet) arrive at a cloistered Romanian abbey in 1952 to investigate a nun’s suicide. The latest in the Conjuring series is the weakest, with Aarons playing nun demon Valak to the hilt but ultimately let down by overstated shocks and erratic plotting.

  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

  • 15
  • Directed by: Shane Black
  • Cast: Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane

A Predator comes to Earth, pursued by others of his kind, and humans are caught in the middle. Black’s reboot of the franchise lacks his usual vim, there are too many set pieces with no time to engage, and there’s next to no tension. It’s neither visceral enough for the fans, nor engaging enough for the rest of us.

Sherlock Gnomes
  • 2018

  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Henry Golding

Stephanie (Kendrick), a mild-mannered suburban mom, tries to track down her friend Emily (Lively) after she mysteriously disappears. A twisty tale of murder, scheming and scams with excellent work from the two leads and the rest of the cast; a deliciously outrageous cocktail of a movie.

Skyscraper

  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Pablo Schreiber, Neve Campbell

Will (Johnson) is an FBI veteran who lost a leg, married his nurse (Campbell) and is a safety assessor for the tallest building in the world—which is then attacked by terrorists. With inane dialogue, substandard Euro-villains and preposterous set-pieces, it takes on two classic predecessors (Die Hard and The Towering Inferno) and loses.

  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Aaron Horvath, Peter Rida Michail
  • Cast: Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Will Arnett

Disgruntled that so many big players in the DC Universe have their own movie but they themselves don’t, the Teen Titans pressure hotshot director Jade Wilson (Bell) to make one. Inventive and very funny animated superhero comedy which is a treat for kids and adults alike.
