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.

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.

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 Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 2h 4min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Newell
  • Cast: Lily James, Michiel Huisman, Jessica Brown Findlay

Juliet (James) is a successful writer in post-WWII London who discovers the eponymous book club, and learns about their lives under the German occupation of the island. Don’t let the twee title put you off, as it’s a beguiling and affecting celebration of friendship, courage and the joys of reading, full of warmth and good humour.

I Feel Pretty

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.

Life of the Party

Life of the Party
  • 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.

The Mercy

The Mercy
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Rachel Weisz, Colin Firth, David Thewlis

The true story of Donald Crowhurst (Firth), a weekend sailor who persuaded an investor to build him a yacht so that he could enter a round-the-world yacht race, with disastrous consequences. Firth does brave and moving work as Crowhurst falls apart under the stress, but the conclusion is unconvincing.

On Chesil Beach

On Chesil Beach
  • 2017
  • UK
  • Directed by: Dominic Cooke
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Emily Watson

Adaptation by Ian McEwan of his own novella, in which newlyweds Eddie (Howle) and Florence (Ronan) have an unsatisfying wedding night in a Dorset hotel in the early 60s. Overwrought and underwhelming, it’s filmed with a heavy hand by theatre director Cooke, making it for self-important and unengaging viewing.

Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit
  • 2018
  • US / Australia
  • 1h 33min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Will Gluck
  • Cast: Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, Sam Neill, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki, Margot Robbie, James Corden

Mischievous bunny Peter (Corden) and his sisters Flopsy (Robbie), Mopsy (Debicki) and Cotton-Tail (Ridley) contend with Thomas (Gleeson), an uptight cottage garden owner. The interweaving of CGI animals with live action is flawless, Gleeson proves to have fine comedy chops and there’s a lot of slapstick, but anyone looking for Beatrix Potter will be sorely disappointed.

A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 35min
  • Directed by: John Krasinski
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, 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.

  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Brad Peyton
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Åkerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton, Jeffrey Dean Morgan

When a space-born pathogen starts turning random animals dangerous across the USA, primatologist Davis (Johnson) is on the case. Splendidly silly monster movie which swerves between knowing humour, endearing stupidity and an over-long CGI-heavy finale; Morgan’s turn as a gung-ho Homeland Security agent is a hoot.

Sherlock Gnomes

Sherlock Gnomes
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Stevenson
  • 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.

  • US / UK
  • 1h 32min

  • Directed by: Raja Gosnell
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Natasha Lyonne, Alan Cumming

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.

  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • 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.

Walk Like a Panther

Walk Like a Panther
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 48min
  • Directed by: Dan Cadan
  • Cast: Stephen Graham, Christopher Fairbank, Dave Johns, Jill Halfpenny, Sue Johnston, Lindsey Coulson, Julian Sands, Jason Flemyng, Stephen Tompkinson, Michael Socha, Scroobius Pip

Mark (Graham) is the son of wrestler Bulldog (Johns), and always wanted to follow dad into the ring, but British wrestling is no longer popular—until the threatened closure of the village pub prompts a fundraising match. Aiming to do for wrestling what The Full Monty did for male strippers, this mixture of broad comedy and shameless tearjerking is entirely predictable and mostly resistible.
