Beautiful Boy

Beautiful Boy
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Felix Van Groeningen
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet, Maura Tierney

David (Carell) is a successful freelance journalist whose son Nic (Chalamet) becomes dependent on meth. True-life story of family breakdown, capturing the never-ending cycle of rehab and relapse; handsomely photographed but repetitive and a bit formulaic, but Chalamet is outstanding.

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.

Creed II

Creed II
  • 2018
  • US

  • Directed by: Steven Caple Jr
  • Cast: Tessa Thompson, Sylvester Stallone, Michael B Jordan

Adonis Creed (Jordan) must defend his world title against Viktor Drago (Munteanu), whose father killed Creed’s own father in Rocky IV. Flashy and entertaining sequel that hits all the right beats but doesn’t quite have the heart of its predecessor..

Once Upon a Deadpool

Once Upon a Deadpool
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: David Leitch
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Fred Savage, Josh Brolin

Deadpool 2 gets the Christmas treatment as the 'merc with a mouth' kidnaps Fred Savage (Princess Bride, The Wonder Years) and forces him to listen to a version of the film without all the gory parts.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • 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 Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Gracey
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

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 King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

  • New Zealand/US
  • Directed by: Christian Rivers

The Old Man and The Gun
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: David Lowery
  • Cast: Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Sissy Spacek

Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Redford), a career criminal and perpetual prison escapee, who’s being chased by Texas lawman John Hunt (Affleck). Redford says it’ll be his last film and it’s a fitting ending: playful, highly entertaining and made with great skill.

  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 26min

  • Directed by: Diederik van Rooijen
  • Cast: Shay Mitchell, Kirby Johnson, Grey Damon

Megan Reed (Mitchell) is a cop on night duty in the mortuary, when dead Hannah Grace (Johnson) keeps wandering the corridors and murdering staff. Straightforward and rather stale genre piece with jump scares, dream sequences and logical gaps, elevated to watchability by Mitchell’s solid performance.

Ralph Breaks the Internet

  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rich Moore, Phil Johnston
  • Cast: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Taraji P. Henson

Ralph (Reilly) and Vanellope (Silverman) have to go to the internet when her game, Sugar Rush, needs a new part. What could have been yet another film about how amazeballs the internet is, becomes a savvy and sweet tale of friendship, subtly weaving the in-jokes with the emotional stakes.

  • US

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Otto Bathurst
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn, Eve Hewson, Tim Minchin, Jamie Dornan, Cornelius Booth

Robin of Loxley (Egerton) returns from the Crusades to find his possessions confiscated by the Sheriff of Nottingham (Mendelsohn) and his love Marian (Hewson) being courted by Will Scarlet (Dornan). The running time is a stretch but it doesn’t take itself too seriously, preferring to get in, get out and (mostly) get the job done.

The Star

The Star
  • 2017
  • 1h 26min
  • U
  • Directed by: Timothy Reckart
  • Cast: Steven Yeun, Kristin Chenoweth, Zachary Levi

A story of the New Testament Nativity told from the perspective of the animals. Dry and bland, but an over-qualified voice cast helps, and there are enough celebrity cameos to give parents a way to pass the time. And as animated bible stories go, at least it’s shorter than Prince of Egypt.

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.

Tulip Fever

Tulip Fever
  • 2015
  • US
  • Directed by: Justin Chadwick
  • Cast: Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz, Jack O'Connell, Judi Dench

Sophia (Vikander) is married to elderly Cornelis (Waltz) but they can’t conceive a child; then he hires penniless artist Jan (DeHaan) to paint her, and she and Jan begin an affair. It’s a lovely recreation of 17th century Amsterdam, but Chadwick buries the story in restless camerawork, garbled dialogue and bawdy comic elements.

White Boy Rick
  • 2018
  • US

  • Directed by: Yann Demange
  • Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Richie Merritt, Bel Powley

Rick (Merritt) is a teenage boy growing up in 80s Detroit, whose father (McConaughey) uses his son to hustle local arms dealers. A gangster flick with an original slant, sometimes vague on the details but with great performances from Merritt, McConaughey and Powley as Rick's drug-addicted sister. Intermittently excellent.
