Bumblebee

Bumblebee
  • 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.

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.

The Great Escape

The Great Escape
  • 1963
  • 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.

Harvie and the Magic Museum

Harvie and the Magic Museum
  • 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

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • 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.

The Lego Movie

The Lego Movie
  • 2014
  • US/Australia
  • 1h 40min
  • U
  • 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.

  • US
  • 1h 25min
  • Directed by: Jonah Hill
  • Cast: Sunny Suljic, Lucas Hedges, Na-kel Smith, Olan Prenatt, Gio Galicia, Ryder McLaughlin, Alexa Demie, Katherine Waterston

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.

  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul Mateen II, Anna Diop

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

What Men Want
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Adam Shankman
  • 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.
