Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 29min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt

Thanos (Brolin) aims to become all-powerful, in the first part of this two-part superhero mash-up. Death, destruction, torture and sacrifice are the order of the day, in a grand space opera that mixes tragedy with pathos, fleshed out with the usual Marvel humour. Truly remarkable.

Black Panther

Black Panther
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ryan Coogler
  • Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis

T’Challa (Boseman) ascends to the throne of Wakanda after his father is killed, and he and former lover Nakia (Nyong’o) must avenge the theft of an artefact made of Wakanda’s precious vibranium. Ground-breaking superhero story with awesome action; Boseman is agile and impressive, but the female contingent is superb and sombre themes sit comfortably alongside comedy.

Breaking In

Breaking In
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 28min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James McTeigue
  • Cast: Gabrielle Union, Billy Burke, Richard Cabral

Shaun (Union) is the estranged daughter of a disgraced tycoon who’s living in his fortress-like vacation home when it’s broken into by crooks who make the mistake of taking her daughter (Alexus) hostage. Union has a satisfying transformation into an SAS-style commando mom, but the villains are anonymous and the screenplay is cliché-ridden.

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.

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.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 2h 4min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Newell
  • Cast: Lily James, Michiel Huisman, Jessica Brown Findlay

Juliet (James) is a successful writer in post-WWII London who discovers the eponymous book club, and learns about their lives under the German occupation of the island. Don’t let the twee title put you off, as it’s a beguiling and affecting celebration of friendship, courage and the joys of reading, full of warmth and good humour.

I Feel Pretty

I Feel Pretty
  • 2018
  • US, China
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Abby Kohn, Marc Silverstein
  • Cast: Amy Schumer, Michelle Williams, Rory Scovel, Emily Ratajkowski

Renee (Schumer) is a gawky and downtrodden worker in a luxury cosmetics company who becomes convinced she is gorgeous after hitting her head at SoulCycle. Conflicted comedy which tries to argue that one shouldn’t judge by appearances, even while it does so itself; Schumer is a gifted performer who needs better material.

Life of the Party
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ben Falcone
  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Gillian Jacobs, Adria Arjona, Maya Rudolph

When Deanna (McCarthy) is abruptly divorced by her husband, she decides to enrol in her daughter’s university to complete the degree she gave up. Frothy comedy which provides a welcome reunion of McCarthy and Rudolph, and fine work from Gardner and Jacobs; lightweight fun.

The Little Vampire

The Little Vampire
  • 2000
  • Germany/Netherlands/US
  • 1h 35min
  • U
  • Directed by: Uli Edel
  • Cast: Jonathan Lipnicki, Richard E Grant, Jim Carter, Alice Krige

Tony (Lipnicki), fresh from the orange groves of California, moves with his family to Scotland. He quickly becomes the leas popular kid in his class, but finds a playmate when a 10-year-old vampire conveniently falls down his chimney. Despite its Hollywood revamp, Angela Sommer-Bodenburg's well-loved novel emerges with its sense of fun intact. However, while this film certainly doesn't suck, it ultimately lacks real bite.

  • 2017
  • Japan
  • 1h 43min
  • Directed by: Hiromasa Yonebayashi
  • Cast: Hana Sugisaki, Ryûnosuke Kamiki, Yûki Amami

Mary (Barnhill) is a young girl who discovers a magic flower that earns her a place at a school of witchcraft, but she soon discovers that the place is not as welcoming as it seems. Energetic adaptation of Mary Stewart’s novel The Little Broomstick, comfortingly familiar to fans of Ghibli but also fresh and gorgeous.

Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit
  • 2018
  • US / Australia
  • 1h 33min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Will Gluck
  • Cast: Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, Sam Neill, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki, Margot Robbie, James Corden

Mischievous bunny Peter (Corden) and his sisters Flopsy (Robbie), Mopsy (Debicki) and Cotton-Tail (Ridley) contend with Thomas (Gleeson), an uptight cottage garden owner. The interweaving of CGI animals with live action is flawless, Gleeson proves to have fine comedy chops and there’s a lot of slapstick, but anyone looking for Beatrix Potter will be sorely disappointed.

A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 35min
  • Directed by: John Krasinski
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Noah Jupe

Lee Abbott (Krasinski), his wife Evelyn (Blunt), son (Jupe) and deaf daughter (Simmonds) live and work in an empty dystopian world in complete silence, hiding from creatures who hunt by sound. Krasinski's third film as director is a smart, weird sci-fi frightener that is beautifully simple but thoughtfully composed.

  • US
  • 1h 47min

  • Directed by: Brad Peyton
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Åkerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton, Jeffrey Dean Morgan

When a space-born pathogen starts turning random animals dangerous across the USA, primatologist Davis (Johnson) is on the case. Splendidly silly monster movie which swerves between knowing humour, endearing stupidity and an over-long CGI-heavy finale; Morgan’s turn as a gung-ho Homeland Security agent is a hoot.

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.

  • 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.

  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.

Truth or Dare
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 40min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jeff Wadlow
  • Cast: Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Violett Beane

Olivia (Hale) is roped into a game of Truth or Dare while on spring break in Mexico with her friends, but a demon takes over the game. Hale is an appealing lead and although the script has some heavy-handed moralising, the death sequences are suitably nasty and the ending is sheer chutzpah.
