Battle of the Sexes

Battle of the Sexes
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Andrea Riseborough, Elisabeth Shue

Based on the true story of the 1973 tennis match between unrepentant male chauvinist ex-no. 1 Bobby Riggs (Carell) and Wimbledon champion Billie Jean King (Stone). An irresistible story, with Carell finding the outrageous and the sad within Riggs, and Stone’s warm and forceful performance winning the film.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ryan Coogler
  • Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis

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.

  • Directed by: Lee Unkrich
  • Cast: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguia, Edward James Olmos

Miguel (Rivera) is a 12-year-old Mexican boy who wants to be a musician, but his family disapproves. Then he steals a guitar from a mausoleum and finds himself in the Land of the Dead. An eye-popping mosaic of a kids’ movie which pays proper respect to Mexican folklore, its sincerity and creativity are ultimately winning.

  • 2018

  • 1h 44min

  • Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson

Michael McCauley (Neeson) is made redundant one day. On the train home, the mysterious Joanna (Farmiga) makes him a cash offer to find someone. Neeson and Collet-Serra’s fourth collaboration is as generic as it sounds, with breathless action, numerous plot holes and a ludicrous story.

Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Wright
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendlesohn, Ronald Pickup

May 1940: the situation in Europe is worsening, and Britain needs a new prime minister. The latest in a very long line of recent Churchill performances is by far the best: Oldman is virtually unrecognisable and attacks the part with relish, with Scott Thomas excellent as his wife Clemmie. It may veer into hero worship but it’s a confidently handled crowdpleaser.

  • 2h 20min

  • Directed by: Christian Gudegast
  • Cast: Gerard Butler, 50 Cent, Pablo Schreiber, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Evan Jones, Dawn Olivieri, Mo McRae, Max Holloway

An elite unit of the LA County Sheriff’s Department crosses paths with the state’s most successful heist crew. There are plenty of twists, and writer-director Gudegast makes a reasonable job of the robbery and shoot-out, but it’s too clearly in thrall to Michael Mann’s Heat, and Butler is no Pacino.

Gormless caveman Dug (Redmayne) and his clan are menaced by Bronze Age invader Lord Nooth (Hiddleston), until twinkle-toed defector Goona (Williams) joins them to help them unite. Deliciously daft prehistoric fun from Park and his team on top form, with winning human touches, plenty of sight gags and painful puns.

Father Figures
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Lawrence Sher
  • Cast: Owen Wilson, Ed Helms, Glenn Close

Peter and Kyle Reynolds (Helms and Wilson) are excited by the idea that their real father was football hero Terry Bradshaw (as himself), but when he wasn’t, they go in search of the real man. Star-studded but casually misogynist would-be comedy, whose central problem is the delusion that women enjoying sexual freedom is funny.

  • 2017

  • Directed by: Carlos Saldanha
  • Written by: Munro Leaf
  • Cast: Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Bobby Cannavale

Ferdinand (Cena) is a Spanish bull who prefers sniffing flowers to staring down bullfighters; shipped off to a farm, he has to escape both the slaughterhouse and the ring. Amiable animation which, although funny, is too overcrowded and unfocused to be really satisfying.

Fifty Shades Freed
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: James Foley
  • Written by: E.L James
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson

Christian Grey (Dornan) and new bride Ana (Johnson) wrestle with married life, but are pursued by a knife-wielding stalker whose identity is known to the audience all along. It’s easy to see where he’s coming from, as you’ll learn to hate them too. Not a climax, just an ending.

  • Directed by: Paul McGuigan
  • Cast: Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Kenneth Cranham, Vanessa Redgrave, Frances Barber, Julie Walters

London, 1978: young actor Peter Turner (Bell) meets and falls in love with 50s film star Gloria Grahame (Bening). Sensitively adapted from Turner’s own memoir, it features a luminous performance from Bening as the faded star and moves with wonderful fluidity from the present to flashbacks. A lovely celebration of a unique woman.

  • UK / Canada / Australia
  • 1h 51min

  • Directed by: Richard Loncraine
  • Cast: Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley

Snobbish Sandra (Staunton) is disturbed to find that her husband Mike (Sessions) has been having an affair with best friend Pamela (Lawrence) but her free-spirited sister Bif (Imrie) helps her loosen up. Familiar but pleasant comedy-drama for mature audiences with a dash of daring.

  • 2017

  • 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.

  • Cast: Margot Robbie, Allison Janney, Sebastian Stan, Paul Walter Hauser

Sympathetic but blackly funny biopic of disgraced American skater Tonya Harding (Robbie), who suffered violent abuse from a young age and strove to get recognition in a sport that didn’t welcome her. Robbie does affecting, impressive and Oscar-nominated work and Janney revels in viciousness as Tonya’s awful mum LaVona.

  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Bobby Cannavale

Four high school teens in detention discover the magical board game Jumanji, now a video game, and after being sucked into it they become the avatars they’ve chosen. Crude but amusing sequel to the 1995 original, with Black having a ball as he gets in touch with his inner prom queen.

  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Odeya Rush, Kathryn Newton

Christine (Ronan) is a 17-year-old from Sacramento, dreaming of the life that awaits her while having to deal with her hyper-critical mother. Gerwig’s solo directorial debut is a sure-footed charmer, wise, witty and breezing along with sunny optimism and an acute understanding of human nature.

  • Directed by: Wes Ball
  • Cast: Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Walton Goggins, Ki Hong Lee, Barry Pepper, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson

The final part of the trilogy sees Thomas (O’Brien) determined to rescue his fellow glader Minho (Lee) from the clutches of WCKD. Thomas is, as usual, the dead weight that stops these movies from taking off, while the treacherous but conflicted Teresa (Scodelario) is far more interesting. A so-so series winds to its so-so ending.

  • 2017

  • 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.

  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley

Murder in the dead of night, a carriage of suspects trapped in an avalanche, and the world’s greatest detective is on hand to solve it. Against the odds, Branagh pulls off a stylish, first-class, surprisingly poignant retelling with fluid camerawork and a top cast, and has a fine old time as the arrogant, outrageously moustachioed Poirot.

  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

Reynolds Woodcock (Day Lewis) is a haute couture dressmaker in 50s London; when he meets Alma (Krieps), and she becomes his muse and then his lover, the carefully crafted life he has made with his sister (Manville) is turned upside down. A multi-layered, expertly observed study of desire and control, with masterful work from Anderson and his cast.

The story of how the Washington Post, led by its publisher Katherine Graham (Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), got the chance to print devastating revelations about US involvement in Vietnam. An old-fashioned Hollywood showstopper with a stellar supporting cast, and sizeable if predictable performances from the leads.

In 1962 Baltimore, Eliza (Hawkins) is a mute who works as a cleaner in a secret government facility alongside the chatty Zelda (Spencer); there she makes a connection with a mysterious monster (Jones). A wondrous tale of underwater love, with an apt and refreshing approach to female sexuality; from screenplay through casting, score and production, it all gels superbly.

Tad (White in the English dub) travels to Las Vegas with his mummified friend in two, hoping to see his girlfriend (Kelly), but she’s kidnapped. Painfully derivative Spanish cartoon pitched at primary schoolers, barely passable rather than notable, but at least it steals from the best.

Exasperated by the police’s failure to catch her daughter’s murderer, Mildred Hayes (McDormand) buys ad space on the titular billboards to tear a strip off the police chief (Harrelson). McDonagh’s latest delicately balances the lingering pain of the crime itself with dark comedy, and a superb cast is topped by a magnificent performance from McDormand.
