Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • Directed by: Alan Elliott, Sydney Pollack

Documentary about Aretha Franklin’s 1972 concert at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles, shot at the time by Sydney Pollack and realised by Alan Elliott. Digital technology has at last made it possible to sync the sound recording with the footage: revel in Aretha at the height of her power, with an exuberant choir, an engaged congregation and celebrity guests Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts.

Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame
  • 2019
  • US
  • 3h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana

Five years after Thanos’s victory, the Avengers are in despair until Ant-Man (Rudd) kicks the story back into action. The final film in the saga verges on fanservice, but there’s intelligent character development, everyone (except Johansson) is given enough to do, and some arcs have a truly poignant sense of closure. Playful, inventive and highly entertaining.

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.

  • 2019
  • USA
  • 18
  • Directed by: Ron Scalpello
  • Cast: Sam Claflin, Timothy Spall, Naomi Ackie

Set against the run up to the 2012 London Olympics, an ex-convict tries to win back his estranged family.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Chaves
  • Cast: Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Marisol Ramirez

Anna (Cardellini) is a child protection case worker raising two kids while struggling with widowhood; then a curse is placed on her. The sixth entry in the Conjuring Universe fails to summon enough unease, culminating in a tension-free finale that’s too tongue-in-cheek. Disappointing.

A Dog's Journey
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Gail Mancuso
  • Cast: Dennis Quaid, Betty Gilpin, Jake Manley

Bailey (Gad) and Ethan (Quaid) are back with another tale of canine reincarnation. Mancuso seasons the teary moments with some warm, fuzzy humour and it’s unashamedly sentimental, but it’s not meant to be subtle and has old-fashioned charm to spare.

Dr Strangelove (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb)

Doctor Strangelove (Or How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love The Bomb)
  • 1963
  • UK
  • 1h 33min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • Cast: Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden.

Devastating black comedy on the lunacy of the nuclear age with Sellers ideally cast in three roles (US President, jolly Brit captain, and demented teutonic boffin) and Slim Pickens the good ole boy heading for oblivion to a chorus of 'We'll Meet Again'. Still alarmingly relevant.

Dumbo

Dumbo
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Alan Arkin

In this remake of the 1941 film, one-armed circus worker Holt (Farrell) is struggling to reconnect with his bereft children while a certain large-eared pachyderm is figuring out the ropes. It looks lovely, but there’s a lot of extra plot shovelled in and it’s arguably overloaded, compared to the sincerity and simplicity of the original.

The Hustle
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Chris Addison
  • Cast: Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, Alex Sharp, Dean Norris

Josephine (Hathaway) is a British con artist who hunts for prey in the French Riviera, where she meets Australian grifter Penny (Wilson). This remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is smug, poorly drawn and full of jokes about Wilson’s character’s supposed unattractiveness. Wilson and Hathaway do their best, but it’s not nearly funny enough.

  • Cast: Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, Lance Reddick, Saïd Taghmaoui, Jerome Flynn, Jason Mantzoukas, Tobias Segal, Boban Marjanović, Anjelica Huston, Ian McShane

John Wick (Reeves) is a global exile with a $14m bounty on his head, and is forced to ask snarly assassin Sofia (Berry) for the help she owes him. The third instalment of this action franchise is the best, with spectacular fight sequences, numerous genius details and excellent performances. Violent, hilarious, surprising and cool.

  • US / Australia / Denmark
  • 1h 46min
  • U
  • Directed by: Rob Schrab
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Tiffany Haddish, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Stephanie Beatriz

Despite living in the Mad Max-style nightmare of Apocalypseburg, Emmet (Pratt) is still his cheery self—until his friends are kidnapped by the alien queen (Haddish). There are lots of good jokes and plenty of fun, but it’s not quite up to the magical original.

Long Shot

Long Shot
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jonathan Levine
  • Cast: Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen, June Diane Raphael

Charlotte Field (Theron) is US Secretary of State and soon-to-be presidential candidate, Fled Flarsky (Rogen) is a journalist who she used to babysit; romance ensues. The gags are great and Raphael is hilarious as Charlotte’s chief of staff; the romance is less compelling, but it’s nice to see a hero happy to support a more powerful female partner.

  • 2018
  • Germany/Luxembourg
  • 1h 26min
  • U
  • Directed by: Christoph Lauenstein, Wolfgang Lauenstein
  • Cast: Callum Maloney, Dermot Magennis, Ian Coppinger

Luis (Maloney) is an 11-year-old boy obsessed with aliens, who gets visited by some shape-changing extra-terrestrial blobs. It has an attractive sheen and likeable characters, but the tone is uncertain and it’s too derivative and unsure of itself to win many admirers.

Paw Patrol: Mighty Pups
  • 2019
  • USA
  • 44min
  • U
  • Directed by: Charles E. Bastien
  • Cast: Devan Cohen, Drew Davis, Samuel Faraci

A meteor lands in Adventure Bay and gives the pups superpowers, but also gives superpowers to nasty Harold of neighbouring Foggy Bottom. Basically a 70-minute extended episode of the series, enjoyably innocuous and easy to follow, although parents won’t be pleased when the toy requests come in after the end credits roll.

Pet Sematary

Pet Sematary
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Kevin Kölsch, Dennis Widmyer
  • Cast: Jason Clarke, John Lithgow, Amy Seimetz

Louis (Clarke) takes his wife Rachel (Seimetz) and two children from Boston and settles in Maine, in a property that includes a spooky pet cemetery. The second adaptation of Stephen King’s novel has panache and escalates to a grim and grisly finale. Laurence is particularly good as the daughter, Ellie.

  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Letterman
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Suki Waterhouse, Omar Chaparro, Chris Geere, Ken Watanabe, Bill Nighy

Tim (Smith) is a former Pokémon trainer who teams up with Pikachu (voiced by Reynolds) to solve a mysterious car accident which leaves his detective father presumed dead. Reynolds’ voice skills are incredible, you don’t need to know about the franchise to get what’s going on and it’s a quirky and lovingly crafted surreal comedy thriller.

Red Joan

Red Joan
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Trevor Nunn
  • Cast: Judy Dench, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes

Joan (Cookson when young, Dench later on) arrives at Cambridge in 1938 and is beguiled by radical politics into becoming a Soviet spy. Nunn’s first movie in over 20 years is a plodding, pedestrian affair, and while Dench captures her befuddlement and steely resolve, it fails to find the drama in a story inspired by intriguing real life events.

  • U
  • Directed by: Karey Kirkpatrick, Jason Reisig
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, James Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Danny DeVito, Gina Rodriguez, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry, Jimmy Tatro

Migo (Tatum) is a bigfoot who lives in an isolated community of his fellow creatures, who have heard rumours of the mythical ‘smallfoots’—humans. The songs are fun and drive the story forward, and child-pleasing slapstick is ably mixed with a thoughtful consideration of how a community can deal with challenges to its basic assumptions.

Tolkien

Tolkien
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Dome Karukoski
  • Cast: Lily Collins, Nicholas Hoult, Genevieve O'Reilly

Young J.R.R. Tolkien (Gilby, then Hoult) romances Edith Bratt (Keene, then Collins), forms friendships and then fights in the trenches of WWI. Hoult is charismatic as the lead and Collins is charming as Edith, and it’s a convincing enough portrait, but it’s a bit too cosy and traditional, especially the family-friendly combat sequences.
