21 Bridges

21 Bridges
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Brian Kirk
  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Taylor Kitsch, JK Simmons

Andre Davis (Boseman) is a Manhattan detective who teams up with Boston narcotics detective Miller on an investigation of a couple of cop killers. It’s an action-packed blood-bath with well-directed chase sequences, which nevertheless struggle against a predictable and cliché-ridden screenplay.

The Addams Family

The Addams Family
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Conrad Vernon, Greg Tiernan
  • Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, Allison Janney

The titular family, Morticia (Theron), Gomez (Isaac), Wednesday (Moretz) and Pugsley (Wolfhard), are targeted by reality TV host Margaux Needler (Janney). The voice cast is decent and the style pays homage to Charles Addams' drawings, but it misses the darkly Gothic spirit of both the original and the Barry Sonnenfeld films, being disconcertingly family-friendly.

  • Directed by: Sophia Takal
  • Cast: Imogen Poots, Lily Donoghue, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O'Grady, Caleb Eberhardt, Simon Mead, Cary Elwes

Four sorority sisters (Poots, Shannon, Donoghue and O’Grady) in a US university plot revenge on a campus creep, but their defiance sparks outrage and a murder spree.Timely slasher movie which takes a while to find its footing, but it has a sense of dread and it shoots misogynist traditions through the heart.

  • Directed by: Elizabeth Banks
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, Elizabeth Banks, Djimon Hounsou, Sam Claflin, Noah Centineo, Patrick Stewart

Sabina (Stewart), Elena (Scott) and Jane (Balinska) are the titular trio, sparking off each other while they take down various wealthy and corrupt businessmen. Stewart is a comedic revelation, Balinska is a natural and Scott gives a confident physical performance, but while it’s fun for the most part, it lacks bite.

  • Directed by: Jon Favreau

Buddy (Ferrell) is a big Elf who, though accepted in his Elvish community at the North Pole, manages to wreak havoc on a daily basis. Fed up and confused by his charge, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) sends him to the US in search of his true identity. Hilarious and puerile Yuletide comedy.

Elsa (Menzel) and Anna (Bell) head off on a dangerous journey after Elsa hears voices calling her to a distant land. The plot is less involving than the character interaction, but Olaf (Gad) is the comedic highlight and while it may be less compelling than the original, it's got all the ingredients for a hit.

  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren, Nell Williams

Roy (McKellen) is a con man who targets wealthy widows, and when he targets Betty (Mirren) her son Steven (Tovey) becomes suspicious. It’s a blend of several genres which don’t quite fuse and is ultimately diverting but far from essential.

  • Directed by: Alma Har'el
  • Written by: Shia LaBeouf
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe

Otis (Jupe, later Hedges) is the son of a difficult father, James (LaBeouf, playing a character based on his own father), in a story that goes back and forth between the 90s and 00s. Obviously a cathartic tale for actor turned screenwriter LaBeouf, it’s indulgent, irritating and emotional but has impressive performances and memorable imagery.

  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

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.

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.

  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 43min

  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh

Kate (Clarke) is a Yugoslavian immigrant whose life is going downhill until she meets the mysterious bike-riding Tom (Golding), who seems too good to be true. Thompson and Kimmings’ script is a saccharine romantic fantasy and George Michael’s music isn’t always incorporated effectively, but its heart is in the right place.

Car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) teams up with mechanic/driver Ken Miles (Bale) in the story of how Ford tried to beat Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966. The race scenes are directed with thrilling energy, and if scenes between Miles and his wife Mollie (Balfe) are uneven, it’s an effective story about dreamers who risked everything.

Lionel Essrog (Norton, who also adapted, directed and co-produced) is a Marlowe-style gumshoe with all the physical and verbal tics of Tourette’s syndrome, who sets out to discover why his boss Frank (Willis) has been shot. Despite a strong cast, the predictable twists and corny dialogue let it down.
