Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK/USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • 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.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

  • UK/US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A

  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Johnny Depp

Newt (Redmayne) is back in London in 1927, while defeated Dark Wizard Grindelwald (Depp) has escaped and is heading to Paris. Law steps up as young Albus Dumbeldore and the film really flies in the final act, deepening characters and relationships and expanding the universe. A beast of a movie.

The Grinch

The Grinch
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 26min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Yarrow Cheney, Scott Mosier
  • Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely, Angela Lansbury

The Grinch (Cumberbatch) is a grumpy, green creature who despises Christmas so much that he plots to steal it. The animation is gorgeous, the pace is breezy and Cumberbatch does a decent job with the voice, but the film is stolen by the Grinch’s adorable dog Max.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström, Joe Johnston
  • Cast: Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen, Richard E. Grant, Misty Copeland, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman

Clara (Foy) is a science-minded teenager whose late mother leaves her a jewellery egg which needs a key, the search for which involves journeying into magical realms. A random hodge-podge of underpowered set pieces loosely inspired by ETA Hoffmann, with the supporting cast chewing the scenery and a lot of grandiose settings but not much story.

Overlord

Overlord
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • Directed by: Julius Avery
  • Cast: Wyatt Russell, Pilou Asbæk, John Magaro

Just before D-Day in 1944, a small group of American soldiers parachutes into enemy territory to take out a German radio tower, but then it turns out that the Nazis have a Secret Lab where Bad Things happen. Lazy and ultimately dull war/horror flick which doesn’t know what to do with itself; a thrilling opening quickly gives way to routine gore.

Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit
  • 2018
  • US / Australia
  • 1h 33min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Will Gluck
  • Cast: Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, Sam Neill, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki, Margot Robbie, James Corden

Mischievous bunny Peter (Corden) and his sisters Flopsy (Robbie), Mopsy (Debicki) and Cotton-Tail (Ridley) contend with Thomas (Gleeson), an uptight cottage garden owner. The interweaving of CGI animals with live action is flawless, Gleeson proves to have fine comedy chops and there’s a lot of slapstick, but anyone looking for Beatrix Potter will be sorely disappointed.

Peterloo

Peterloo
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 2h 34min
  • Directed by: Mike Leigh
  • Cast: Rory Kinnear, Maxine Peake, Neil Bell

Historical drama depicting the 1819 massacre at St Peter’s Field in Manchester and its background. Leigh crafts an ensemble story on a far greater canvas than he’s ever attempted before, and shows he can handle big-scale action; while it struggles at times to gel, the quieter moments really linger. Passionate and finely-crafted.

A Star is Born
  • 2018

  • Directed by: Bradley Cooper
  • Cast: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott

Jackson (Cooper) is a famous musician, his best years behind him, who discovers young singer Ally (Gaga) in a bar one night. What could have been yet another remake is a revelation: Gaga sings up a storm and is nuanced and convincing, but Cooper is extraordinary as co-writer, producer, director and star. Smart, funny and heartbreaking.

  • Cast: Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson

Veronica (Davis) is the wife of career criminal Harry (Neeson), who talks the wives of her husband’s associates into pulling off a heist after their husbands are unable to (see the movie title.) Densely populated and richly realised crime drama, with three fine leads in Davis, Debicki and Rodriguez, and McQueen’s contemplative style is balanced with genre thrills and feminist fury.
