Abominable
  • 2019
  • US / China
  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: Jill Culton
  • Cast: Chloe Bennet, Albert Tsai, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Paulson, Tsai Chin, Michelle Wong

A cute, blue-eyed Yeti is found hiding on the roof of a Shanghai apartment building, and teenager Yi (voiced by Bennett) and her friends Jin (Trainor) and Peng (Tsai) decide to help him get back to the Himalayas. Enjoyable, smartly paced and gorgeously animated; hardly very original, but full of comic relief and heart.

  • 2019

  • 2h 2min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland

In the near future, Roy McBride (Pitt) is an astronaut searching for his father Clifford (Jones), himself a pioneering space explorer. But Roy’s classified mission turns deadly. Gray’s stellar third film is a huge step up, mixing horror and action with deeper themes and anchored by a dazzling turn from Pitt, who has never been better.

The Addams Family

The Addams Family
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Conrad Vernon, Greg Tiernan
  • Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, Allison Janney

The titular family, Morticia (Theron), Gomez (Isaac), Wednesday (Moretz) and Pugsley (Wolfhard), are targeted by reality TV host Margaux Needler (Janney). The voice cast is decent and the style pays homage to Charles Addams' drawings, but it misses the darkly Gothic spirit of both the original and the Barry Sonnenfeld films, being disconcertingly family-friendly.

The Angry Birds Movie 2

The Angry Birds Movie 2
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 36min
  • U
  • Directed by: Thurop Van Orman
  • Cast: Dove Cameron, Awkwafina, Peter Dinklage

When Eagle Island villain Zeta (Jones) starts lobbing ice bombs at Piggy Island, ruler Leonard (Hader) bonds with angry birds (Sudeikis, McBride, Gad) to try and clip her wings. Half-knowing and half-derivative, it’s cheerful but gaudy and relentless and the story isn’t strong enough to support all the half-baked set pieces.

Ben is Back

Ben is Back
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • Directed by: Peter Hedges
  • Cast: Julia Roberts, Lucas Hedges, Courtney B. Vance

Ben (Hedges) comes back to his family for Christmas when he’s supposed to be at a facility for recovering heroin addicts, to the alarm of his mother Holly (Roberts). Roberts is great and Hedges is entirely convincing, in this emotive domestic drama. Sometimes sentimental, but with sad authenticity.

Black and Blue
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 48min

  • Directed by: Deon Taylor
  • Cast: Mike Colter, Naomie Harris, Frank Grillo

Alicia (Harris) is a recently qualified police officer returning to New Orleans after serving two tours of duty in the military in Afghanistan; she’s then framed for murder by corrupt narcs. Harris is believably gutsy and isolated and while it’s not exactly subtle, it’s an effective Fugitive-style thriller with a righteous regard for neglected communities.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbez, Michael Peña, Eva Longoria, Danny Trejo

Dora (Moner) is a teenager who spent her childhood exploring the jungle with her parents (Longoria and Peña), but when her parents go missing, Dora leaves high school to find them. A sweet Spy Kids-style adventure that never serves up anything too scary, complex or upsetting for young viewers; Moner gives a warm and delightful performance and is the main reason to watch.

Gemini Man
  • 2019
  • China / US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ang Lee
  • Cast: Will Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen

Henry (Smith) is a 51-year-old assassin who develops a conscience, but the powers that be want to retire him; then baddie businessman Varris (Owen) sends a 31-year-old clone of Henry after him. The characters are totally underdeveloped and the effects (include Lee’s favourite high frame rate) make it look cheap. Smith is as watchable as ever, but that’s all.

Destiny (Wu) and Ramona (Lopez) are strippers who, with their friends, devise a way of getting more cash out of their clients. Wu gives a sophisticated performance and her dynamic with Lopez pops with convincing intensity, making for a raucous crime story that’s by turns gorgeous, funny and surprisingly moving.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andy Muschietti
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Skarsgård, Bill Hader

Twenty-seven years after the events of the first film, the town experiences a series of attacks, causing the Losers to reunite. Darker-toned than the first one, it has an impactful story about friendship and buried secrets and if the repetitive CGI lose their impact, there are still surprises in store.

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.

  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, Rufus Sewell

A look at the later life of Judy Garland (Zellweger), as she marries her fifth husband (Wittrock) and performs a five-week run at a London nightclub. Zellweger is captivating as the deeply lonely star, struggling to keep her work commitments, adored but unhappy and wracked with guilt about being away from her children.

The Keeper

The Keeper
  • 2018
  • Germany / UK
  • 2h
  • Directed by: Marcus H Rosenmüller
  • Cast: David Kross, Freya Mavor, John Henshaw

Bert Trautmann (Kross) is a WW2 German paratrooper who, on being released from a Lancashire POW camp, chooses to stay in England and eventually becomes goalie for Manchester City. Rosenmüller throws in everything but the kitchen sink, but it becomes ludicrously melodramatic and focuses too much on the romance.

  • Cast: Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan

Jimmie (Fails) is obsessed with regaining ownership of the Victorian home that his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. A fond elegy for a city slipping from view, shedding light on many themes from the bonds of masculinity and the class divide in modern America.

  • Cast: Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, James Earl Jones

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

Official Secrets
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 52min
  • Directed by: Gavin Hood
  • Cast: Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Ralph Fiennes

The story of Katharine Gun (Knightley), the GCHQ whistleblower who in 2003 leaked an email containing details of a US eavesdropping operation targeting UN Security Council members concerning the invasion of Iraq. Knightley gives a tightly-wound performance and Hood tells the story with sensationalising it. Possibly one of the most important films of the year.

  • 2019

  • 1h 33min

  • Directed by: Tyler Nilson/Michael Schwartz
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, Zack Gottsagen

Zak (Gottsagen) has Down’s Syndrome and dreams of becoming a wrestler; one night he sneaks out, meets crab fisherman Tyler (LaBeouf) and they go on the lam. It may sound contrived, but the Tyler-Zak relationship is incredibly sweet, and a cast of indie movie royalty make for a cockle-warming delight.

  • 2019

  • Directed by: Richard Starzak
  • Cast: Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes

Shaun and his gang of sheep are getting up to mischief that puts them at odds with sensible sheepdog Bitzer; then an alien craft arrives. This dialogue-free pristinely shambolic stop-motion romp is, in its deft way, a crowd-pleaser for everyone, with enough Close Encounters references to keep parents interested.

  • 2019

  • 2h 8min

  • Directed by: Tim Miller
  • Cast: Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes, Diego Boneta

In present-day Mexico City, Sarah Connor (Hamilton) forms fractious ties with augmented future soldier Grace (Davis) to protect Dani (Reyes) from a cyborg (Luna). Miller knows Hamilton is his trump card, and this female-focus reset brings heart, horror, focus and ferocity back to the series. Refreshing..

Woody (Tom Hanks) joins new owner Bonnie at kindergarten where he finds a new purpose in protecting her improvised toy Forky (Hale). Pixar manages to further the story with fine new characters and a satisfyingly teary conclusion, for a fine last chapter in the saga.

  • Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon

Singer-songwriter Jack (Patel) is knocked unconscious when a bus hits his bike, and he wakes up in a world where the Beatles are unknown. There’s some fine comedy (including from Sheeran, playing himself) but it gets less surefooted; Patel can’t stop Jack from being rather morose and it’s neither a classic Curtis rom-com nor as infectiously euphoric as Boyle’s best work.
