T’Challa (Boseman) ascends to the throne of Wakanda after his father is killed, and he and former lover Nakia (Nyong’o) must avenge the theft of an artefact made of Wakanda’s precious vibranium. Ground-breaking superhero story with awesome action; Boseman is agile and impressive, but the female contingent is superb and sombre themes sit comfortably alongside comedy.

Dark Waters

Dark Waters
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 6min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Todd Haynes
  • Cast: Anne Hathaway, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins

Robert (Ruffalo) is a corporate defence attorney who switches sides when a friend’s cattle are ravaged by diseases caused by chemical run-off from a DuPont plant. The spiralling narrative sucks you in, but it’s rather lacking in conviction, idiosyncrasy and suspense (Hathaway is wasted as Robert’s crotchety wife.) Still, interesting and pertinent.

Four Kids and It

Four Kids and It
  • 2020

  • PG
  • Directed by: Andy De Emmony

Four kids (Malleson-Allen, Jenkins, Aufderheide and Siame) are brought together when one family’s father announces that they’re seeing the mother of another family; but then on holiday they meet the mysterious sand fairy, the Psammead (voiced by Caine). The plot is predictable, but the tone is charmingly non-condescending, the kids are endearing and Caine is nicely crotchety.

  • 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.

  • US / Australia
  • 2h 4min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Leigh Whannell
  • Cast: Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer

Cecilia (Moss) flees her abusive partner, optics experimenter Adrian (Jackson-Cohen), and then hears that he’s dead; but he still seems to be around. Whannell milks minimalist set-ups for maximum effect, and Moss projects raw dread and ‘final girl’-ish fortitude. A low-budget but high-resonance exercise in sweaty-palmed suspense.

Isle of Dogs

Isle of Dogs
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Wes Anderson

When the corrupt Mayor of Megasaki City sends all the dogs to Trash Island, his 12-year-old ward Atari (Rankin) goes there to find out what happened to his beloved Spots (Schreiber). Sensationally rendered stop-motion tribute to Japanese cinema, rich in detail and full of deadpan heroism and epic ineptitude. Delightful.

Jumanji: The Next Level

Jumanji: The Next Level
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 54min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Kasdan
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover

In the sequel to the 2017 reboot, old-timers Eddie (DeVito) and Milo (Glover) join the teens in an another video game adventure. Johnson and Awkwafina steal their scenes, although Gillan has to do too much exposition before she can get going, and while it’s a bit too similar to its predecessor it’s amiable festive fun.

Knives Out

Knives Out
  • 2019
  • US

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Christopher Plummer

When mystery writer Harlan Thrombey (Plummer) is found with his throat slit, puffed-up private detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) gets on the case. A wickedly knowing, flamboyantly bitchy take on the whodunnit, with a great cast, bags of style and a splendidly outrageous comic turn from Craig. Bloody good fun.

The Lion King

The Lion King
  • 2019

  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • 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.

Acerbic, clever teen drama written by Saturday Night Live's Tina Fey.

  • South Korea

  • Cast: Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik, Park So-dam

Ki-taek (Song Kang-ho) and his family hatch a cunning plot to improve their lives by infiltrating a wealthy family. Bong Joon-Ho’s slickly directed and darkly hilarious satire catches you off guard with its mix of pithy humour and tender family interactions, and then unfolds into something blazingly brutal, smart and heartfelt.

Proxima

Proxima
  • 2019
  • France / Germany
  • 1h 47min
  • Directed by: Alice Winocour
  • Cast: Eva Green, Zélie Boulant, Matt Dillon

Sarah (Green) is a French astronaut preparing to go to Mars, whose schedule is punctuated by visits from her daughter (Boulant). A heartrending astronaut drama that eschews spectacle and focuses on the mother-daughter relationship, with superb performances from all. Beautiful and insightful.

Radioactive

Radioactive
  • 2019
  • UK / Hungary
  • 1h 49min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Marjane Satrapi
  • Cast: Rosamund Pike, Sam Riley, Anya Taylor-Joy, Aneurin Barnard, Simon Russell Beale

Biopic of Marie Curie (Pike), the double Nobel Prize-winning scientist who discovered radium and polonium. Pike is compelling as Marie, as is Riley as her fellow scientist and future husband, but the attempts to contextualise their achievement are clumsy and amateurish. A missed opportunity.

Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

The Empire Strikes Back
  • 1980
  • US
  • 2h 4min
  • U
  • Directed by: Irvin Kershner
  • Written by: George Lucas, Leigh Brackett, Lawrence Kasdan
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, David Prowse, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Frank Oz

Arguably the best Star Wars film, the middle part of the original trilogy is packed with drama, tension, humour and a belter of a cliffhanger. Much of its impact has been lost to familiarity (that twist) but it's a masterpiece, impeccably directed by George Lucas' old UCLA tutor Kershner.
