Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 29min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt

Thanos (Brolin) aims to become all-powerful, in the first part of this two-part superhero mash-up. Death, destruction, torture and sacrifice are the order of the day, in a grand space opera that mixes tragedy with pathos, fleshed out with the usual Marvel humour. Truly remarkable.

Book Club

Book Club
  • 2018
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bill Holderman
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen

Four women (Keaton, Fonda, Bergen and Steenburgen) form a book club to read Fifty Shades of Grey, and in so doing reassess their lives. Irresistibly cheeky and shamelessly cheesy ensemble drama in which older women are placed in the centre of the action, with a torrent of innuendo delivered with relish by a superior cast.

Breaking In

Breaking In
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 28min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James McTeigue
  • Cast: Gabrielle Union, Billy Burke, Richard Cabral

Shaun (Union) is the estranged daughter of a disgraced tycoon who’s living in his fortress-like vacation home when it’s broken into by crooks who make the mistake of taking her daughter (Alexus) hostage. Union has a satisfying transformation into an SAS-style commando mom, but the villains are anonymous and the screenplay is cliché-ridden.

Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Leitch
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Morena Baccarin

When tragedy splinters Wade Wilson’s own life, it takes a meeting with a mutant kid (Dennison) and vengeful cyborg Cable (Brolin) to renew his sense of purpose. Filthy, ferocious and funny, it surpasses its predecessor by doubling down on the gleeful self-awareness and excess; the whole cast shines, and the climax is surprisingly touching.

Edie

Edie
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 37min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Simon Hunter
  • Cast: Sheila Hancock, Kevin Guthrie, Paul Brannigan

Edie (Hancock) was trapped in a loveless marriage for years, so when her husband dies, the 85-year-old takes advantage of her new freedom to go mountain-climbing in the Scottish Highlands. There’s charming chemistry between Hancock and co-star Guthrie, and the film is not unaware of how unprepared Edie is; unashamedly feel-good if somewhat formulaic.

Hereditary

  • Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro

Annie (Collette) is an artist who crafts a dollhouse depicting the traumas of her life, but then her family begins to feel they’re being haunted by her late mother. Unnervingly oppressive debut from Aster, exploring maternal guilt and family anxiety. Collette has one of her best roles in years.

I Feel Pretty
  • 2018
  • US, China
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Abby Kohn, Marc Silverstein
  • Cast: Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams, Rory Scovel, Emily Ratajkowski

Renee (Schumer) is a gawky and downtrodden worker in a luxury cosmetics company who becomes convinced she is gorgeous after hitting her head at SoulCycle. Conflicted comedy which tries to argue that one shouldn’t judge by appearances, even while it does so itself; Schumer is a gifted performer who needs better material.

  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ben Falcone
  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Gillian Jacobs, Adria Arjona, Maya Rudolph

When Deanna (McCarthy) is abruptly divorced by her husband, she decides to enrol in her daughter’s university to complete the degree she gave up. Frothy comedy which provides a welcome reunion of McCarthy and Rudolph, and fine work from Gardner and Jacobs; lightweight fun.

Moana

Moana
  • 2016
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing lack of a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

My Little Pony: The Movie
  • 2017
  • 1h 39min

  • Directed by: Jayson Thiessen
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber

The Friendship Festival of Canterlot is disrupted by ruthless unicorn Tempest Shadow (Blunt), so Twilight Sparkle (Strong) and pals must embark on a rescue mission. It manages to showcase the brand without sacrificing every last ounce of soul, and is cute, simple and surefooted enough for its target audience, if not for anyone else.

  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

  • Directed by: John Krasinski
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe

Lee Abbott (Krasinski), his wife Evelyn (Blunt), son (Jupe) and deaf daughter (Simmonds) live and work in an empty dystopian world in complete silence, hiding from creatures who hunt by sound. Krasinski's third film as director is a smart, weird sci-fi frightener that is beautifully simple but thoughtfully composed.

  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

NYPD Rottweiler Max (Ludacris) goes undercover with FBI agent Frank (Arnett) at the Canini Invitational, a prestigious Vegas dog show. Arnett gives an uncharacteristically lacklustre turn, although Lyonne takes being the love interest in her stride, but despite spirited voice acting it’s both overly silly and vaguely moralistic.

  • Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.

The troopers from the original film are given the task of patrolling a disputed border between the USA and Canada. Actor-director Chandrasekhar and his troupe double down on the Canadian flavour of the setting and those who enjoyed the shamelessly low-brow original will get what they want, and more, from the sequel.

You Were Never Really Here
  • 2017

  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Ekaterina Samsonov, Alessandro Nivola, Judith Roberts

Joe (Phoenix) is a gun for hire, Marine veteran and ex-FBI agent who rescues a young girl from a sex trafficking ring, but is haunted by his own traumatic past. A muscular and tightly-wound masterpiece with an intense and riveting performance from Phoenix. Crushingly sad, daringly outré and hugely accomplished.
