21 Bridges

21 Bridges
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Brian Kirk
  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Taylor Kitsch, JK Simmons

Andre Davis (Boseman) is a Manhattan detective who teams up with Boston narcotics detective Miller on an investigation of a couple of cop killers. It’s an action-packed blood-bath with well-directed chase sequences, which nevertheless struggle against a predictable and cliché-ridden screenplay.

Aladdin

Aladdin
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Numan Acar, Billy Magnussen, Alan Tudyk, Frank Welker

Disney’s live-action version of 1992’s Aladdin features a fun, fast-talking and scene-stealing Smith and terrific work from Massoud and Scott as Aladdin and Jasmine, but against that there’s some weird VFX, odd directorial choices and a well-intentioned but clunky female empowerment number. Enjoyable and entertaining nevertheless.

Black Christmas

Black Christmas
  • 2019
  • US / New Zealand
  • 1h 32min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sophia Takal
  • Cast: Imogen Poots, Lily Donoghue, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O'Grady, Caleb Eberhardt, Simon Mead, Cary Elwes

Four sorority sisters (Poots, Shannon, Donoghue and O’Grady) in a US university plot revenge on a campus creep, but their defiance sparks outrage and a murder spree.Timely slasher movie which takes a while to find its footing, but it has a sense of dread and it shoots misogynist traditions through the heart.

  • 1h 31min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andrew Onwubolu
  • Written by: Andrew Onwubolu
  • Cast: Stephen Odubola, Micheal Ward, Khali Best

Timmy (Odubola) befriends Marco (Ward), but they find themselves on separate sides of an increasingly ugly gang rivalry. Rapper-turned-writer/director Onwubolu, telling a story drawn from his own upbringing, draws compelling turns from Ward and Odubola and it packs a huge punch.

Charlie's Angels

Charlie's Angels
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Elizabeth Banks
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, Elizabeth Banks, Djimon Hounsou, Sam Claflin, Noah Centineo, Patrick Stewart

Sabina (Stewart), Elena (Scott) and Jane (Balinska) are the titular trio, sparking off each other while they take down various wealthy and corrupt businessmen. Stewart is a comedic revelation, Balinska is a natural and Scott gives a confident physical performance, but while it’s fun for the most part, it lacks bite.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Written by: David Berenbaum
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Bob Newhart, Ed Asner, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen

Buddy (Ferrell) is a big Elf who, though accepted in his Elvish community at the North Pole, manages to wreak havoc on a daily basis. Fed up and confused by his charge, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) sends him to the US in search of his true identity. Hilarious and puerile Yuletide comedy.

  • 2019
  • US

  • Directed by: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
  • Cast: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff

Elsa (Menzel) and Anna (Bell) head off on a dangerous journey after Elsa hears voices calling her to a distant land. The plot is less involving than the character interaction, but Olaf (Gad) is the comedic highlight and while it may be less compelling than the original, it's got all the ingredients for a hit.

It's a Wonderful Life
  • 1946
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

  • 1h 48min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Taika Waititi
  • Cast: Roman Griffin Davis, Scarlett Johansson, Taika Waititi, Rebel Wilson, Thomasin McKenzie, Sam Rockwell, Stephen Merchant

Jojo (Davis) is a ten-year-old, obedient Nazi boy in WWII Germany whose mother (Johansson) is in the Resistance; Jojo reinvents Hitler (Waititi) as his oddball imaginary friend. Waititi ridicules Nazi ideology with aplomb, and as Jojo journeys towards enlightenment and reconnects with his humanity, it’s even rather beautiful.

Joker

Joker

  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

In the sequel to the 2017 reboot, old-timers Eddie (DeVito) and Milo (Glover) join the teens in an another video game adventure. Johnson and Awkwafina steal their scenes, although Gillan has to do too much exposition before she can get going, and while it’s a bit too similar to its predecessor it’s amiable festive fun.

  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Christopher Plummer

When mystery writer Harlan Thrombey (Plummer) is found with his throat slit, puffed-up private detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) gets on the case. A wickedly knowing, flamboyantly bitchy take on the whodunnit, with a great cast, bags of style and a splendidly outrageous comic turn from Craig. Bloody good fun.

  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh

Kate (Clarke) is a Yugoslavian immigrant whose life is going downhill until she meets the mysterious bike-riding Tom (Golding), who seems too good to be true. Thompson and Kimmings’ script is a saccharine romantic fantasy and George Michael’s music isn’t always incorporated effectively, but its heart is in the right place.

  • 2h 32min
  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, Ray McKinnon

Car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) teams up with mechanic/driver Ken Miles (Bale) in the story of how Ford tried to beat Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966. The race scenes are directed with thrilling energy, and if scenes between Miles and his wife Mollie (Balfe) are uneven, it’s an effective story about dreamers who risked everything.

Lionel Essrog (Norton, who also adapted, directed and co-produced) is a Marlowe-style gumshoe with all the physical and verbal tics of Tourette’s syndrome, who sets out to discover why his boss Frank (Willis) has been shot. Despite a strong cast, the predictable twists and corny dialogue let it down.

  • Cast: Luke Evans, Nick Frost, Gemma Arterton

Buddy (Frost) is a dog and former astronaut who finds an ally in Felix (Evans), a rich cat who styles himself after Batman. Not the most original idea (it’s all a bit Zootropolis) and the world-building isn’t that sophisticated, but a smattering of wit and first-rate vocal talent make it an enjoyable ride.
