1917

1917
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

Bad Boys for Life

Bad Boys For Life
  • 2020
  • US
  • 2h 3min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah
  • Cast: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Paola Núñez, Kate del Castillo, Nicky Jam, Joe Pantoliano, Thomas Brag

Mike (Smith) and Marcus (Lawrence) are back, tracking down a mysterious assassin with the help of younger colleagues. The best film in the franchise so far, it’s full of the expected action but also develops the relationship between the leads. Great fun, and the most purely entertaining movie Smith has made in a while.

Batman Begins

Batman Begins
  • 2005
  • US
  • 2h 19min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, Cillian Murphy, Morgan Freeman

Deeply flawed but satisfyingly dark and realistic adaptation of both Bob Kane's original strips and Frank Miller's Batman: Year One. David Blade Goyer's script is pretty awful but this is also a fairly substandard piece of work from Nolan as well. 'Batman Begins' does, however, need to be applauded for partly revitalising an ailing franchise.

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Cathy Yan
  • Cast: Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ewan McGregor, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Chris Messina, Rosie Perez, Ella Jay Basco

Harley Quinn (Robbie), having broken up with the Joker, finds herself the target of old enemies. The script could have used a few more comic putdowns, but the old-school action is solid, the setting is proudly the gutter and Robbie’s brilliant, ebullient performance as the mischievous Harley ensures a consistent sense of mischief. Top-tier comic book stuff.

  • Directed by: David Wilson
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, Guy Pearce

Ray Garrison (Diesel) is slain by baddie Martin Axe (Kebbell) but then brought back to life with nanotechnology by Dr Harting (Pearce). Debut director Wilson is well aware how daft it all is and delivers a flashy, fast-paced action movie that never takes itself too seriously. Big, dumb fun.

  • 2020

  • 1h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Sanders
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens, Omar Sy, Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford, Colin Woodell

Buck is a dog who is kidnapped in California and then has adventures all over the north, including with loner John Thornton (Ford). Big-hearted adaptation of Jack London’s classic 1903 novella, with skilful CGI and fine action sequences and a tear-jerking turn from Ford as both actor and narrator.

  • 2008
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman

Nolan's revamp of the superhero franchise reaches its apotheosis with this sequel to Batman Begins, a supremely well-imagined, perfectly executed film that combines blockbuster spectacle with indie cinema cool and smarts. Psychotic, chaos-loving clown The Joker (Ledger) is introduced as the dark knight's ultimate nemesis and a thrilling battle slowly terrorises the populace of Gotham.

Eight years after The Dark Knight, Batman (Bale) is in exile, wanted for the death of an attorney. But when jewel thief Selina Kyle (Hathaway) draws him back to Gotham City he is held to ransom by masked terrorist Bane (Hardy). Emotional, epic and set to be the blockbuster of the year.

Dark Waters

Dark Waters
  • 2019
  • US

  • 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.

  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

Fantasy Island

Fantasy Island
  • 2020

  • Directed by: Jeff Wadlow
  • Cast: Michael Pena, Maggie Q, Lucy Hale, Portia Doubleday

Mr Roarke (Peña) welcomes guests to his tropical island, only for them to discover that horror, etc., awaits. The bland 70s TV show is rebooted as a horror film, with the result being by turns boring, embarrassing and frustrating. Blumhouse’s quality control has failed spectacularly.

  • 2017
  • US

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.

  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Written by: Jon Lucas, Scott Moore
  • Cast: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Heather Graham, Justin Bartha, Jeffrey Tambor

Two days before his wedding, Doug (Bartha) heads to Vegas with his two best friends and future brother-in-law for a final bachelor blow out. Waking up the next morning, however, the trio has no recollection of what happened the night before or, more importantly, where they might have left Doug. This buddy movie delivers with its riotous cocktail of memorable characters, outrageous situations and explicit humour.

Interstellar
  • 2014
  • US / UK
  • 2h 49min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway

Cooper (McConaughey) is a pilot-turned-farmer who's recruited for an intergalactic mission to find humanity a new home. Despite awe and nail-biting tension, there's too much clunky exposition and cinematic clichés, and although Nolan's intentions to make a singular and cerebral film are admirable, it all gets a bit silly.

Jojo (Davis) is a ten-year-old, obedient Nazi boy in WWII Germany whose mother (Johansson) is in the Resistance; Jojo reinvents Hitler (Waititi) as his oddball imaginary friend. Waititi ridicules Nazi ideology with aplomb, and as Jojo journeys towards enlightenment and reconnects with his humanity, it’s even rather beautiful.

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.

Just Mercy
  • 2019

  • Cast: Jamie Foxx, Michael B Jordan, Brie Larson

Walter (Foxx) is convicted of the murder of a teenage white girl on the testimony of one felon (Blake-Nelson), despite a lack of incriminating evidence. Lawyer Bryan (Jordan) acts on his behalf. Old-fashioned, crusading legal drama which builds into an emotional and thought-provoking confrontation of the abiding racism in American society.

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.

  • Directed by: Greta Gerwig
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet, Meryl Streep, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, James Norton, Louis Garrel, Chris Cooper

Adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel about a group of sisters growing up after the American Civil War. Gerwig’s affection and respect for the book is obvious but she boldly captures the transition from childhood to womanhood by playing with structure; an outstanding cast and skilful filmmaking make it a beautifully crafted tale of sisterhood, memory and authorship.

Military Wives
  • 2019

Kate (Scott Thomas) is a colonel’s wife who, when troops go to Afghanistan, teams up with Lisa (Horgan) to form a choir. Inspired by a true story, it tugs unashamedly at the heartstrings and an excellent ensemble plus a little grit ensure that it properly earns its tears.

Sally (Knightley) is a prim but committed activist who, with artist Jo (Buckley), aims to infiltrate the 1970 Miss World pageant, although Grenadian contestant Jennifer (Mbatha-Raw) has a different take on the contest. A spirited and sincere look at the contradictions involved; despite the slightly fantastic degree of female solidarity, it’s got an impressive sense of balance.

JJ (Bautista) is a CIA agent who when carrying out surveillance is befriended by nine-year-old Sophie (Coleman). Amiably lightweight but all-too-disposable family comedy which seems to have been assembled with warmed-up elements of other films; it doesn't do tough very well, but isn't notably warm & fuzzy either.

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.

Sonic (Schwartz) finds himself alone on Earth, on the run from the authorities, with villain Dr Robotnik (Carrey) also in pursuit. A derivative script and a rather tired performance from Carrey aside, it’s got disarming charm and cheek and Sonic is a cutely cartoonish hero.

Jackson (Cooper) is a famous musician, his best years behind him, who discovers young singer Ally (Gaga) in a bar one night. What could have been yet another remake is a revelation: Gaga sings up a storm and is nuanced and convincing, but Cooper is extraordinary as co-writer, producer, director and star. Smart, funny and heartbreaking.

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.
