Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK/USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

Creed II
  • 2018
  • US

  • Directed by: Steven Caple Jr
  • Cast: Tessa Thompson, Sylvester Stallone, Michael B Jordan

Adonis Creed (Jordan) must defend his world title against Viktor Drago (Munteanu), whose father killed Creed’s own father in Rocky IV. Flashy and entertaining sequel that hits all the right beats but doesn’t quite have the heart of its predecessor..

Once Upon a Deadpool

Once Upon a Deadpool
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: David Leitch

Die Hard

Die Hard
  • 1988
  • US
  • 2h 11min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John McTiernan
  • Cast: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Alexander Godunov

Willis plays a cop who attends a tower block Christmas party with his estranged spouse. The building is raided by terrorists, so it's left to Willis to bump off the baddies and save the hostages while the police and FBI languish ineptly on the sidelines. Unbearably tense actioner that gets good mileage out of yawning lift-shafts and flying bullets, while Willis is convincing as an ordinary guy trying to cope with it all. Watch out for Brit Rickman as a villain with a sense of humour.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Johnny Depp

Newt (Redmayne) is back in London in 1927, while defeated Dark Wizard Grindelwald (Depp) has escaped and is heading to Paris. Law steps up as young Albus Dumbeldore and the film really flies in the final act, deepening characters and relationships and expanding the universe. A beast of a movie.

The Girl in the Spider's Web

  • 1h 57min

  • Directed by: Fede Álvarez
  • Cast: Claire Foy, Sverrir Gudnason, LaKeith Stanfield, Sylvia Hoeks, Stephen Merchant

Lisbeth Salander returns, recruited by a computer boffin (Merchant) to hack a program that accesses nuclear codes, but then her sister (Hoeks) shows up wanting revenge on her for fleeing home. Foy is impressive but it goes for surface thrills rather than psychological depth.

The Grinch

The Grinch
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 26min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Yarrow Cheney, Scott Mosier
  • Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely, Angela Lansbury

The Grinch (Cumberbatch) is a grumpy, green creature who despises Christmas so much that he plots to steal it. The animation is gorgeous, the pace is breezy and Cumberbatch does a decent job with the voice, but the film is stolen by the Grinch’s adorable dog Max.

Night School

Night School
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Malcolm D. Lee
  • Cast: Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Brooke Butler

Teddy (Hart) has to go back to school to get his GED, only to run up against teacher Carrie (Haddish). Fitfully amusing comedy which pulls too many punches and shows evidence of having been heavily watered-down in post-production; Haddish isn’t given nearly enough to do and it’s bland and lacking coherence.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström, Joe Johnston
  • Cast: Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen, Richard E. Grant, Misty Copeland, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman

Clara (Foy) is a science-minded teenager whose late mother leaves her a jewellery egg which needs a key, the search for which involves journeying into magical realms. A random hodge-podge of underpowered set pieces loosely inspired by ETA Hoffmann, with the supporting cast chewing the scenery and a lot of grandiose settings but not much story.

  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rich Moore, Phil Johnston
  • Cast: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Taraji P. Henson

Ralph (Reilly) and Vanellope (Silverman) have to go to the internet when her game, Sugar Rush, needs a new part. What could have been yet another film about how amazeballs the internet is, becomes a savvy and sweet tale of friendship, subtly weaving the in-jokes with the emotional stakes.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman
  • Cast: Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Nicolas Cage

Miles Morales (Moore) is an average kid living in a New York where Spider-Man exists, but he then gets bitten himself by a radioactive spider and starts developing familiar abilities. Hugely imaginative animated adventure which dispenses with the familiar origin story and looks like a comic come to life. Hilarious, original and exhilarating.

A Star is Born
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bradley Cooper
  • Cast: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott

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.
