Coco

Coco
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lee Unkrich
  • Cast: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguia, Edward James Olmos

Coco (Rivera) is a 12-year-old Mexican boy who wants to be a musician, but his family disapproves. Then he steals a guitar from a mausoleum and finds himself in the Land of the Dead. An eye-popping mosaic of a kids’ movie which pays proper respect to Mexican folklore, its sincerity and creativity are ultimately winning.

The Commuter

The Commuter
  • 2018
  • US / UK
  • 1h 44min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson

Michael McCauley (Neeson) is made redundant one day. On the train home, the mysterious Joanna (Farmiga) makes him a cash offer to find someone. Neeson and Collet-Serra’s fourth collaboration is as generic as it sounds, with breathless action, numerous plot holes and a ludicrous story.

Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Wright
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendlesohn, Ronald Pickup

May 1940: the situation in Europe is worsening, and Britain needs a new prime minister. The latest in a very long line of recent Churchill performances is by far the best: Oldman is virtually unrecognisable and attacks the part with relish, with Scott Thomas excellent as his wife Clemmie. It may veer into hero worship but it’s a confidently handled crowdpleaser.

Downsizing

Downsizing
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alexander Payne
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis

When a Norwegian institute develops a successful process of human miniaturisation, people flock to take part so as to minimise the impact of humans on the planet. Mild-mannered comedy and gentle romance which looks beautiful but is sentimental and meandering.

Ferdinand

Ferdinand
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 46min
  • U
  • Directed by: Carlos Saldanha
  • Written by: Munro Leaf
  • Cast: Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Bobby Cannavale

Ferdinand (Cena) is a Spanish bull who prefers sniffing flowers to staring down bullfighters; shipped off to a farm, he has to escape both the slaughterhouse and the ring. Amiable animation which, although funny, is too overcrowded and unfocused to be really satisfying.

The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Gracey
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

Insidious: The Last Key

Insidious: The Last Key
  • 2018
  • 1h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam Robitel
  • Cast: Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson

Parapsychologist Dr Elise Rainier (Shaye) faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet – in her own family home. An unexpectedly moving fourth instalment features and excellent performance from the charismatic Shaye, and sensitive themes of silencing women and domestic abuse are well-handled.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Kasdan
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Bobby Cannavale

Four high school teens in detention discover the magical board game Jumanji, now a video game, and after being sucked into it they become the avatars they’ve chosen. Crude but amusing sequel to the 1995 original, with Black having a ball as he gets in touch with his inner prom queen.

Molly's Game

Molly's Game
  • 2017
  • 2h 20min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Aaron Sorkin
  • Cast: Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner

Competitive skier Molly Bloom (Chastain) turns to running professional poker games after suffering a career-ending sports injury. Sorkin’s directorial debut features much of his crisp dialogue which Chastain and Elba manage to make sound natural; shame about the script’s dispiriting preoccupation with Molly’s daddy issues.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld, Anna Camp, John Lithgow, DJ Khaled, Hana Mae Lee, Ruby Rose, Alexis Knapp, Chrissie Fit, Ester Dean, Shelley Regner, Kelley Jakle, John Michael Higgins, Elizabeth Banks

The Bellas are all struggling in the workplace after leaving college, so they get the old gang back together to tour European army bases. It plays out as an entertaining variety show mixed with an action thriller, with enough energy to deliver cheesy and diverting fun.

The Post
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 56min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson

The story of how the Washington Post, led by its publisher Katherine Graham (Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), got the chance to print devastating revelations about US involvement in Vietnam. An old-fashioned Hollywood showstopper with a stellar supporting cast, and sizeable if predictable performances from the leads.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran

Rey (Ridley) meets Luke (Hamill) to learn all about the Force. Johnson expands on the casualties-of-war theme, making magnificent, roaring action sequences and leading the viewer through a blood-stained moral labyrinth. Driver returns with a vengeance, Dern is terrific and it hits the sweet spot between nostalgia and gripping storytelling.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
  • 2017
  • UK / US
  • 1h 55min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin McDonagh
  • Cast: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage

Exasperated by the police’s failure to catch her daughter’s murderer, Mildred Hayes (McDormand) buys ad space on the titular billboards to tear a strip off the police chief (Harrelson). McDonagh’s latest delicately balances the lingering pain of the crime itself with dark comedy, and a superb cast is topped by a magnificent performance from McDormand.
