Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 1991
  • US
  • 1h 24min
  • U
  • Directed by: Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise
  • Cast: Paige O'Hara, Robby Benson, Richard White, Jerry Orbach, Angela Lansbury, David Ogden Stiers, Bradley Pierce, Jesse Corti, Rex Everhart

The first animated film ever to get an Oscar nomination for Best Picture, the 30th Walt Disney feature-length cartoon is a classic by anyone's standards. The familiar story is supplemented by terrific songs, a host of comic characters and a breathtaking combination of traditional and computer animation techniques.

  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 53min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Travis Knight
  • Cast: Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., John Ortiz, Jason Drucker, Pamela Adlon

In 80s California, Charlie (Steinfeld) is a grieving teenage auto mechanic who finds a broken-down VW Beetle which turns out to be Autobot B-127. Knight’s Transformers prequel injects much needed charm and fun into the franchise, with a nice bond between Bee and Charlie, and even the robot fights have wit and precision.

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel
  • 2019
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck
  • Cast: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Kazinsky

Danvers (Larson) is a fighter with the Kree Starforce who finds herself on Earth, and encountering Agent Nick Fury (Jackson). The storyline doesn’t give Larson a lot of time to establish a persona, but her charm, style and ass-kicking make her Marvel’s coolest customer and whatever it lacks in heart, it makes up for with sheer likeability.

Cold Pursuit
  • 2019
  • UK/Norway/US/Canada
  • 1h 58min
  • Directed by: Hans Petter Moland
  • Cast: Emmy Rossum, Liam Neeson, Laura Dern

Nels (Neeson) is a snowplough driver who keeps his small fictional Colorado town moving, but when his teenage son (Richardson) turns up dead, he goes out for revenge. Two hours of Neeson beating, strangling and shooting people, with double handfuls of racism and sexism, make for an aimless, bigoted, dumb waste of time.

Escape Room

Escape Room
  • 2019
  • South Africa / US
  • 1h 40min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam Robitel
  • Cast: Deborah Ann Woll, Taylor Russell, Logan Miller

A group of people find themselves solving a series of deadly puzzles in an escape room. The acting is convincing and the whole thing is pleasingly put together, but it’s also ridiculously silly, and you may find that if you can solve the puzzles sooner than the characters can, your patience may be tested.

Fighting with My Family

Fighting with My Family
  • 2019
  • UK/US
  • 1h 48min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Stephen Merchant
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Lena Headey, Nick Frost, Jack Lowden, Vince Vaughn, Dwayne Johnson

Based on the true story of WWE champion Saraya-Jade Bevis, aka Paige (Pugh), following her journey from dismal Norwich via Florida boot camp to the stadium. Pugh and Lowden as her brother are good, but the innuendo is crude, the characterisation shallow and the attempt to depict Saraya’s rise as some kind of feminist revolution is unconvincing.

Fisherman’s Friends

Fisherman’s Friends
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: Chris Foggin
  • Cast: Tuppence Middleton, James Purefoy, Daniel Mays, David Hayman

Danny (Mays) is a music industry talent handler who arrives in Cornwall on a stag night, and discovers the titular (real-life) folk singers and signs them. Mays is a watchable lead and generates rom-com chemistry with Middleton, the daughter of the group’s grouchy Jim (Purefoy). An undemanding yarn with nevertheless the power to do some cockle-warming.

Five Feet Apart

Five Feet Apart
  • 2019
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Justin Baldoni
  • Cast: Haley Lu Richardson, Cole Sprouse, Claire Forlani

Stella (Richardson) is a young woman with cystic fibrosis who falls for another CF patient, Will (Sprouse). A smart script and touching performances but with a fumbled, melodramatic ending; still, it’s a sensitive , heartfelt and often moving look at what it’s like to live with this life-threatening condition.

  • US
  • 2h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Sturges
  • Cast: Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, James Donald, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence, James Coburn

The classic WWII escape drama, featuring a fine ensemble cast trying to get out of the Nazi stalag. McQueen's 'Cooler King' became a screen icon, particularly in the scene where he attempts to jump over a field of barbed wire fences on a motorbike.

Green Book

Green Book
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Peter Farrelly
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Don Shirley (Ali), virtuoso pianist, is chauffeured around the American South in 1962 by his Italian-American driver Tony (Mortensen), and much learning ensues. It’s beautifully made and very worthy, but far too gentle and broad to be effective; Tony, rather than Don, is the heart of the story and it lacks bite.

  • 2017
  • Czech Republic
  • 1h 26min
  • Directed by: Martin Kotík, Inna Evlannikova
  • Cast: Martin Dejdar, Ota Jirák, Martin Klásek

Harvie, a schoolkid, falls beneath the earth with his dog and friend Monica and discovers an evil puppet master. Harvie himself is one of the most annoying protagonists in a kids’ film ever, but there’s enough humour and scariness in this Czech animation to keep younger kids entertained.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

  • Directed by: Dean DeBlois
  • Cast: Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington, Justin Rupple, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, F. Murray Abraham, Gerard Butler

Hiccup (voiced by Baruchel) is now a chief with growing responsibilities, while Toothless the dragon is in love; but then dragon hunter Grimmel (Abraham) is determined to spoil people’s fun. The franchise is running out of steam; there’s too much going on and the central bond is obscured.

  • UK

  • Directed by: Joe Cornish
  • Cast: Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Dean Chaumoo, Tom Taylor, Rhianna Dorris, Angus Imrie, Patrick Stewart, Rebecca Ferguson

Alex (Serkis), escaping from school bullies, finds a sword sticking out of a cement post which he and mate Bedders (Chaumoo) decide is Excalibur. Entertaining, but with too many unanswered questions, and Ferguson as Morgana is wasted for most of the movie. Shame, because the kids are terrific.

  • Directed by: Phil Lord/Christopher Miller
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Cobie Smulders

Emmett (Pratt), a regular Lego construction worker, finds himself acclaimed as the 'Special', who will save the Lego universe from evil Lord Business. Fast, funny, blisteringly paced and hugely inventive, it's also so layered with ironic detachment that the attempt at a sincere final act falls flat; still, good fun for adults and kids.

Stevie (Suljic) is a 13-year-old whose brother beats him up, and in an escape from his domestic woes he starts hanging out with an older crew of skaters. Hill’s debut feature shows plenty of creative daring and is pleasingly non-judgmental, a witty and compassionate portrait of adolescence.

Adelaide (Nyong’o) and Gabe (Duke) arrive at their holiday home with their children, only to be confronted by a mysteriously familiar foursome. Peele’s follow up to Get Out is a neat twist on the home invasion story, with beautifully executed set pieces, and Nyong’o is phenomenal as both protagonist and chief aggressor. Fresh and arresting.

What Men Want
  • 2019

  • Cast: Taraji P. Henson, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Max Greenfield

Ali (Henson) is a sports agent who can suddenly understand the thoughts of her male co-workers. It fails to make the most of the battle of the sexes premise, becoming a predictable rom-com, but Henson gives an impressively physical performance and Badu has fun as the wacky psychic who starts the whole debacle.
