Adrift

Adrift
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 36min
  • Directed by: Baltasar Kormákur
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin, Grace Palmer

Tami (Woodley) wakes up in her yacht to find water seeping into it, and she and boyfriend Richard (Claflin) must work together to save it. Woodley and Claflin convincingly convey that first flush of romance and it’s a real-life survival story with a twist which may spoil some people’s enjoyment.

Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Leitch
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Morena Baccarin

When tragedy splinters Wade Wilson’s own life, it takes a meeting with a mutant kid (Dennison) and vengeful cyborg Cable (Brolin) to renew his sense of purpose. Filthy, ferocious and funny, it surpasses its predecessor by doubling down on the gleeful self-awareness and excess; the whole cast shines, and the climax is surprisingly touching.

The First Purge

The First Purge
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 37min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Gerard McMurray
  • Cast: Marisa Tomei, Melonie Diaz, Y'lan Noe

No-nonsense, incendiary B-movie prequel to the franchise, in which the government tries out the whole ‘purge’ idea for the first time. Noel and Scott Davis are fine leads, and it makes great use of horror tropes and characters to bust racist myths. Unsubtle, but charged and effective.

Hereditary

Hereditary
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 7min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ari Aster
  • Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro

Annie (Collette) is an artist who crafts a dollhouse depicting the traumas of her life, but then her family begins to feel they’re being haunted by her late mother. Unnervingly oppressive debut from Aster, exploring maternal guilt and family anxiety. Collette has one of her best roles in years.

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.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Debra Granik
  • Cast: Ben Foster, Thomasin McKenzie

Tom (McKenzie) is the teenage daughter of Will (Foster), a traumatised military veteran who sells on his own PTSD medication and takes her from place to place, refusing to settle down. Sensitive and non-judgmental picture of a capable young woman and her well-meaning but troubled father, with gorgeously subtle performances.

McQueen

McQueen
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui
  • Cast: Alexander McQueen

Elegant documentary on the working-class London lad who became chief designer at Givenchy, combining behind-the-scenes footage with archive comments and fresh interviews, looking at the grief caused by the loss of close friend Isabella Blow and his beloved mother. Informative, engrossing but never maudlin.

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.

RSC Live: Romeo and Juliet

Royal Shakespeare Company: Romeo and Juliet
  • 2018

Shakespeare’s most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion in this contemporary production with heartbreaking consequences.

  • 2018
  • Spain
  • 1h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sergio G Sánchez
  • Cast: George MacKay, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton

Jack (MacKay) cares for his siblings and ailing mother; when his mother dies, he and local librarian Allie (Taylor-Joy) try to protect the family by creating the illusion that she’s still alive. A wealth of detail in this haunted house story makes up for a lack of scares, and it’s a sober, well-constructed riff on genre tropes.

Sherlock Gnomes

Sherlock Gnomes
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Stevenson
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

  • US / UK
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Raja Gosnell
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Natasha Lyonne, Alan Cumming

NYPD Rottweiler Max (Ludacris) goes undercover with FBI agent Frank (Arnett) at the Canini Invitational, a prestigious Vegas dog show. Arnett gives an uncharacteristically lacklustre turn, although Lyonne takes being the love interest in her stride, but despite spirited voice acting it’s both overly silly and vaguely moralistic.

Sicario 2: Soldado
  • 2018
  • US/Italy
  • 15
  • Directed by: Stefano Sollima
  • Cast: Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Isabela Moner

Federal agent Graver (Brolin) brings his operative Alejandro (Del Toro) back into the fold as the operation shifts from drug-smuggling to human trafficking. This world-weary sequel has the authenticity of the first film but is more predictable, and it never really convinces us to care about the issues it prioritises.

Skyscraper

Skyscraper
  • 2018
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rawson Marshall Thurber
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Pablo Schreiber, Neve Campbell

Will (Johnson) is an FBI veteran who lost a leg, married his nurse (Campbell) and is a safety assessor for the tallest building in the world—which is then attacked by terrorists. With inane dialogue, substandard Euro-villains and preposterous set-pieces, it takes on two classic predecessors (Die Hard and The Towering Inferno) and loses.

Tag

Tag

  • US
  • Directed by: Jeff Tomsic
  • Cast: Jeremy Renner, Annabelle Wallis, Isla Fisher

Five friends (Hamm, Helms, Johnson, Buress, Renner) compete every year in a bruising game of tag, begun three decades earlier. Fitfully amusing, but neither grounded enough to be affecting nor ludicrous enough to be genuinely funny, it mostly takes off when Fisher has the spotlight.

  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Charles Stone III
  • Cast: Kyrie Irving, Milton "Lil Rel" Howery, Nick Kroll

Dax (Howery) is a Harlem streetball coach who has to seek out 70-year-old streetball legend Uncle Drew (Irving) to form a team for a tournament. NBA stars wear very convincing prosthetic makeup in this amiable comedy, which is over-reliant on trash talk but which has a likeable cast and enough crowd-pleasing style to get by.

Whitney

Whitney
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 2h
  • 15
  • Directed by: Kevin Macdonald
  • Cast: Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown,

Clear-sighted, compassionate portrait of Whitney Houston, which derives its strength from the range of testimony it’s collected, from family members, surly former husband Brown, film co-stars and assorted siblings and loved ones. It reminds us of her thrilling, spine-tingling voice while bringing revelations that many of her troubles lay in childhood trauma.
