BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • Directed by: Spike Lee
  • Cast: John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Alec Baldwin

In 1978, Ron Stallworth (Washington), the first black man to join the Colorado Springs police, goes undercover in the Ku Klux Klan, with the help of fellow officer Flip (Driver). A stranger-than-fiction true story fusing buddy cop traditions with powerful recollections of cruelty, and anger at Trump’s America. Fascinating, funny and riveting.

Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc Forster
  • Cast: Hayley Atwell, Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings

Christopher Robin (McGregor) is a workaholic who neglects his family, until he re-encounters his childhood toys. Whimsical and unoriginal back-to-childhood tale, not saved by McGregor’s dexterity or Cummings’s lovely voice work as Pooh.

Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jon M Chu
  • Cast: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh

When Chinese-American college professor Rachel (Wu) meets the family of boyfriend Nick (Golding), she discovers that they’re incredibly rich. A fairly stale star-crossed lovers’ story is refreshed by a cast of East Asian stars and entertaining local colour.

Despicable Me

Despicable Me
  • 2010
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Elsie Fisher, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Julie Andrews, Pierre Coffin

Universal's latest offering is a good-humoured tale of a curmudgeonly aspiring supervillain (Carrell) whose wicked ways are transformed when the three orphaned girls he adopts to help him steal the moon end up capturing his heart instead. Engaging, if not quite a classic.

Edie

Edie
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 37min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Simon Hunter
  • Cast: Sheila Hancock, Kevin Guthrie, Paul Brannigan

Edie (Hancock) was trapped in a loveless marriage for years, so when her husband dies, the 85-year-old takes advantage of her new freedom to go mountain-climbing in the Scottish Highlands. There’s charming chemistry between Hancock and co-star Guthrie, and the film is not unaware of how unprepared Edie is; unashamedly feel-good if somewhat formulaic.

Hotel Transylvania 2

Hotel Transylvania 2
  • 2015
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • U
  • Directed by: Genndy Tartakovsky
  • Cast: Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Mel Brooks, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, Fran Drescher

Marginally better sequel to the 2012 original: Dracula (Sandler) is now a grandfather, but is worried that the toddler son of Mavis (Gomez) and Jonathan (Samberg) isn't vampire enough. The comedy is more character-based and the presence of Brooks as Dracula's domineering father helps, although Brooks did all this with more zip and affection in Young Frankenstein.

The House with a Clock in its Walls

The House with a Clock in its Walls
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Eli Roth
  • Cast: Cate Blanchett, Jack Black, Owen Vaccaro

Lewis (Vaccaro) is an orphan sent to live with his mysterious uncle Jonathan (Black). Roth takes a break from gore to turn this children’s book into family fare, and it’s atmospheric, but lacks charm; still, Black is great casting and the themes of grief and bravery are handled well.

The Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

The King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

Luis and the Aliens

Luis and the Aliens
  • 2018
  • Germany/Luxembourg
  • 1h 26min
  • U
  • Directed by: Christoph Lauenstein, Wolfgang Lauenstein
  • Cast: Callum Maloney, Dermot Magennis, Ian Coppinger

Luis (Maloney) is an 11-year-old boy obsessed with aliens, who gets visited by some shape-changing extra-terrestrial blobs. It has an attractive sheen and likeable characters, but the tone is uncertain and it’s too derivative and unsure of itself to win many admirers.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
  • 2018
  • UK/US

  • PG
  • Directed by: Ol Parker
  • Cast: Christine Baranski, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Julie Walters, Alexa Davies, Pierce Brosnan, Jeremy Irvine, Colin Firth, Hugh Skinner, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Dylan, Cher, Dominic Cooper, Andy García

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

Mile 22
  • 2018
  • US
  • 18
  • Directed by: Peter Berg
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Lauren Cohan, John Malkovich, Ronda Rousey, Iko Uwais

James Silva (Wahlberg) leads a crack CIA team to transport a government witness who's been targeted for assassination. Much double-crossing, fistfights and absurd technobabble, and while Wahlberg is over-intense, the physical stuff is well-handled by Rousey and Uwais. Straight-up, boneheaded action.

The Nun

The Nun
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 18
  • Directed by: Corin Hardy
  • Cast: Bonnie Aarons, Taissa Farmiga, Charlotte Hope

Two Vatican investigators and a local (Bichir, Farmiga and Bloquet) arrive at a cloistered Romanian abbey in 1952 to investigate a nun’s suicide. The latest in the Conjuring series is the weakest, with Aarons playing nun demon Valak to the hilt but ultimately let down by overstated shocks and erratic plotting.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

The Predator

The Predator
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Shane Black
  • Cast: Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane

A Predator comes to Earth, pursued by others of his kind, and humans are caught in the middle. Black’s reboot of the franchise lacks his usual vim, there are too many set pieces with no time to engage, and there’s next to no tension. It’s neither visceral enough for the fans, nor engaging enough for the rest of us.

A Simple Favour
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 57min

  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Henry Golding

Stephanie (Kendrick), a mild-mannered suburban mom, tries to track down her friend Emily (Lively) after she mysteriously disappears. A twisty tale of murder, scheming and scams with excellent work from the two leads and the rest of the cast; a deliciously outrageous cocktail of a movie.
