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.

  • 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.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marielle Heller
  • Cast: Matthew Rhys, Tom Hanks, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Cooper

Lloyd Vogel (Rhys) is a journalist assigned to interview beloved television host Fred Rogers (Hanks), arriving with cynicism but finding himself charmed and disarmed by Rogers’ unexpected complexity. Audiences expecting a treacly tearjerker will be surprised; Heller makes bold choices, with Rhys conveying bitter, curdled anger and Hanks masterfully portraying Rogers’ depth and hard-working decency.

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.

Brahms: The Boy II
  • 2020

  • Directed by: William Brent Bell
  • Cast: Katie Holmes, Owain Yeoman, Christopher Convery

Liza (Holmes) is the victim of a violent home invasion in her London flat, after which she moves to the countryside; but then her traumatised young son (Convery) finds a doll called Brahms, which gets a hold over him. An improvement on the original in every way, with simple but effective jump-scares and better acting.

  • 2020

  • 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.

Cinema Live: The Cellist/ Dances at a Gathering

Cinema Live: Marston & Scarlett World Premieres

Broadcast live to Airdrie Town Hall cinema.

Cathy Marston has previously been an Associate Artist of the Royal Opera House and Director of Bern Ballett, and is much in demand internationally. The inspiration for her first work for The Royal Ballet Main Stage is the momentous life and career of the cellist Jacqueline du Pré. Jerome Robbins’s elegant and elegiac classic forms the second part of the programme. This exercise in pure dance for five couples, set to music by Chopin, is a masterpiece of subtlety and invention.

Approximate running time – 2 hours and 30 minutes with one interval.

  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Octavia Spencer, Tom Holland, Craig Robinson, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Marion Cotillard

Dr Dolittle (Downey) is grieving the death of his wife Lily when a young boy (Collett) and Lady Rose (Laniado) both come to ask him for help. The plot is a barely connected bunch of scenes, action sequences are hinted at but unrealised. The worst adaptation of Hugh Lofting’s stories to date: all this talent wasted in a big furry disappointment.

Emma

Emma
  • 2020
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Autumn de Wilde
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Josh O'Connor, Gemma Whelan

Emma (Taylor-Joy) is a self-important matchmaker blinded by snobbery and youthful hubris. It’s in keeping with the vogue for complex, unapologetic heroines but the comedy is rather hit and miss and it looks great. Taylor-Joy’s alert performance makes Emma her own.

  • 2019
  • US

  • Directed by: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
  • Cast: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff

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.

Greed

Steve Coogan.
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
  • Cast: Steve Coogan, Isla Fisher, Asa Butterfield, David Mitchell

Richard (Coogan) is a super-rich fashion tycoon, being followed around by an official biographer (Mitchell). Winterbottom’s satire takes on too many targets and, while funny, is never clever enough to be truly satisfying, with characters appearing as plot devices rather than as people in their own right. The targets are righteous but it misses the mark.

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man
  • 2020
  • US / Australia
  • Directed by: Leigh Whannell
  • Cast: Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer

Cecilia (Moss) flees her abusive partner, optics experimenter Adrian (Jackson-Cohen), and then hears that he’s dead; but he still seems to be around. Whannell milks minimalist set-ups for maximum effect, and Moss projects raw dread and ‘final girl’-ish fortitude. A low-budget but high-resonance exercise in sweaty-palmed suspense.

  • 1h 48min

  • Directed by: Taika Waititi
  • Cast: Roman Griffin Davis, Scarlett Johansson, Taika Waititi, Rebel Wilson, Thomasin McKenzie, Sam Rockwell, Stephen Merchant

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.

  • Cast: Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne, Salma Hayek

Mia (Haddish) and Mel (Byrne) are best friends running a beauty company, which is then bought out by makeup wizard Claire (Hayek). Despite a good cast and director, there’s only so much that can be done with the weak script. It desperately wants to be funny, but isn’t sure how.

  • 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.

  • 2019

  • Directed by: Charles E. Bastien
  • Cast: Anya Cooke, Cathal J. Dodd, Isaac Emberson-Heeks

The pups have to compete in a race against dirty tricks driver Cheetah. Young fans of the franchise may be disappointed on an entire movie centred on only one character, Marshall, and there’s nothing special here to justify the cost of cinema tickets when it can be watched at home in just a few months.

  • Cast: Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Aneurin Barnard, Ben Whishaw, Morfydd Clark, Peter Capaldi, Gwendoline Christie, Benedict Wong, Paul Whitehouse, Daisy May Cooper

David (Patel) is an ever-optimistic orphan who’s given shelter by poor but worthy Mr Micawber (Capaldi). Iannucci brings out the lighter side of Dickens, and the result is a sprightly, breezy and colourful crack at a classic, with a fabulous supporting cast and a perfect turn by Patel as the likeable hero.

Queen (Turner-Smith) and Slim (Kaluuya) are a mismatched duo whose Tinder date goes horribly wrong and puts them on the run in the American South. An oddball road movie with style, subtlety and low-key charm, burning with genuine about racism, written and directed by black women.

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.

Lance Sterling (Smith) is a super spy who has to team up with inventor Walter (Holland) to clear his name, but is turned into a pigeon. It’s all very derivative but good fun, with a cute message about embracing your weirdness, and Smith and Holland’s terrific double act should earn them their own live-action buddy comedy.

Emperor Palpatine (McDiarmid) is back and building an army, so Rey (Ridley), Poe (Isaac), Finn (Boyega) and the gang go up against him and Kylo Ren (Driver). The internal and external battle of Ridley and Driver is the strongest element, with magnetic chemistry, but elsewhere it’s disappointing fan service, a film that loses its nerve.
