  • 2h 1min

  • 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.

  • 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.

Oliver (Hammer) arrives at a country palazzo in Lombardy to be intern to the family patriarch (Stuhlbarg), but he slowly forms a strong bond with the 17-year-old son Elio (Chalamet). Sensitive and sensuous love story which treats characters and audiences with respect; one of the best films of the year.

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.

Darkest Hour
  • 2017

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Maze Runner: The Death Cure
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • 12A
  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

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.
