Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Drew Goddard
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm

Four guests (Bridges, Hamm, Erivo, Johnson) check into a Lake Tahoe guest house for different reasons; but there’s a bag of stolen money under the floorboards. This 60s-set pulp thriller may not be as genre-bending as Goddard’s earlier The Cabin in the Woods, but it’s an atmospheric and airtight noir.

Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice
  • 1988
  • US
  • 1h 32min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Cast: Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, Jeffrey Jones, Glenn Shadix, Sylvia Sidney

Recently deceased and very charming New England couple have difficulty in adjusting to the afterlife. They eventually call on freelance bio-exorcist Betelgeuse (pronounced 'Beetle-juice') to deal with the problem in his own inimitable fashion. A movie of exuberantly eccentric cartoonish capers, which creates its own comic cosmos where the unexpected is the norm.

Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc Forster
  • Cast: Hayley Atwell, Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings

Christopher Robin (McGregor) is a workaholic who neglects his family, until he re-encounters his childhood toys. Whimsical and unoriginal back-to-childhood tale, not saved by McGregor’s dexterity or Cummings’s lovely voice work as Pooh.

First Man

First Man
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 18min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Corey Stoll, Claire Foy

Biopic of the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong (Gosling), with subtle and unshowy performances from Gosling and from Foy as his no-BS wife Jan. An intimate and moving character drama with raw and visceral space-peril thrills and a hero whose fame rests on modesty, curiosity and problem-solving purposefulness.

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ari Sandel
  • Cast: Wendi McLendon-Covey, Madison Iseman, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Caleel Harris, Chris Parnell, Ken Jeong, Jack Black

Kathy (McLendon-Covey) is an exasperated single mother trying to keep her unruly children on the straight and narrow, but then they discover evil ventriloquist’s dummy Slappy (Black). A tediously bland attempt at family horror, with join-the-dots storytelling and only a few perky performances and special effects to recommend it.

Halloween
  • 2018

  • 18
  • Directed by: David Gordon Green
  • Written by: Jeff Fradley, Danny McBride, David Gordon Green
  • Cast: Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Virginia Gardner, Nick Castle

A direct sequel to the 1978 original: Michael Myers has been locked in a prison for most of his life, and it falls to long-suffering Laurie (Curtis) to stop him. After a slow beginning it gets going, and Laurie—now a mother and grandmother—has to battle with trauma. A straightforward stalk-n-slash in the best tradition of the franchise.

Hotel Transylvania 3

Hotel Transylvania 3
  • 2018
  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: Genndy Tartakovsky
  • Cast: Adam Sandler, Kathryn Hahn, Andy Samberg

Third instalment of the Hotel Transylvania franchise, which sees daughter Mavis (Gomez) take on the role of overbearing parent when her father Dracula (Sandler) falls for the ship's captain Ericka (Hahn) whilst on a monsters-only cruise. A funny and good-humoured flick, with plenty of goofy gags and musical numbers that'll please the whole family.

Hunter Killer

Hunter Killer
  • 2018
  • US/China
  • Directed by: Donovan Marsh
  • Cast: Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman, Michael Nyqvist

Submarine captain Joe Glass (Butler) leads a mission to rescue the Russian president from his own deranged defence minister and so avert WWIII. Gung-ho action, cartoonish politics, a hackneyed story and toe-curling dialogue make for a bland and brainless dud. It may be about subs, but it’s a real floater.

  • 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.

Johnny English Strikes Again

Johnny English Strikes Again
  • 2018
  • UK/France
  • 1h 28min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Kerr
  • Cast: Rowan Atkinson, Olga Kurylenko, Ben Miller, Emma Thompson

Johnny English (Atkinson) is called back into action after a cyberattack reveals the identities of British secret agents. The cast are game, but the dialogue lacks snap and the direction and editing are atrocious. The lack of laughs are all the more infuriating because it’s easy to see how it could have been funnier.

The King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

  • Cast: Christine Baranski, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Julie Walters, Alexa Davies, Pierce Brosnan, Jeremy Irvine, Colin Firth, Hugh Skinner, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Dylan, Cher, Dominic Cooper, Andy García

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

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 Nun
  • 2018

  • Directed by: Corin Hardy
  • Cast: Bonnie Aarons, Taissa Farmiga, Charlotte Hope

Two Vatican investigators and a local (Bichir, Farmiga and Bloquet) arrive at a cloistered Romanian abbey in 1952 to investigate a nun’s suicide. The latest in the Conjuring series is the weakest, with Aarons playing nun demon Valak to the hilt but ultimately let down by overstated shocks and erratic plotting.

  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Henry Golding

Stephanie (Kendrick), a mild-mannered suburban mom, tries to track down her friend Emily (Lively) after she mysteriously disappears. A twisty tale of murder, scheming and scams with excellent work from the two leads and the rest of the cast; a deliciously outrageous cocktail of a movie.

  • Directed by: Karey Kirkpatrick, Jason Reisig
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, James Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Danny DeVito, Gina Rodriguez, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry, Jimmy Tatro

Migo (Tatum) is a bigfoot who lives in an isolated community of his fellow creatures, who have heard rumours of the mythical ‘smallfoots’—humans. The songs are fun and drive the story forward, and child-pleasing slapstick is ably mixed with a thoughtful consideration of how a community can deal with challenges to its basic assumptions.

  • 2018

  • Directed by: Susanna Fogel
  • Cast: Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Sam Heughan

Audrey (Kunis) finds that her ex-boyfriend is a spy, and she and her best friend Morgan (McKinnon) are forced into completing his mission. Hardly the most original plot, but it’s briskly paced, the script is sharp and often surreal, and McKinnon in particular is on fire, comedically speaking, with ostensible leading lady Kunis a fine and very game foil.

  • 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.

Eddie (Hardy) is a reporter trying to expose the nefarious activities of dodgy billionaire Carlton Blake (Ahmed) when he’s grabbed by an alien symbiote that gives him powers. Flailing about between genres, this never finds its tone and Hardy turns in a bizarrely shifty performance. A muddle.
