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.

  • Cast: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh

First Man

First Man

  • 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.

The House with a Clock in its Walls

The House with a Clock in its Walls
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Eli Roth
  • Cast: Cate Blanchett, Jack Black, Owen Vaccaro

Lewis (Vaccaro) is an orphan sent to live with his mysterious uncle Jonathan (Black). Roth takes a break from gore to turn this children’s book into family fare, and it’s atmospheric, but lacks charm; still, Black is great casting and the themes of grief and bravery are handled well.

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.

Mandy

Mandy
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 1min

  • Directed by: Panos Cosmatos
  • Cast: Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache

Mild-mannered lumberjack Red (Cage) is living in a woodland idyll with Mandy (Riseborough) when Mansonesque Jeremiah (Roache) shows up with his gang. Psychedelia-infused horror which harnesses the full transportive power of cinema; all the performances are great, but Cage has his best role in years.

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.

Royal Ballet: Mayerling

Via Satellite from The Royal Opera HouseMayerling is a classic of the Royal Ballet repertory, with its emotional depth, haunting imagery, and one of the most demanding roles ever created for a male dancer. Kenneth MacMillan choreographed a complex work around the psychologically tormented heir to the Habsburg Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf. From the ballets start, the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court is contrasted with undercurrents of sexual and political intrigue that drive the story to its violent climax in a double suicide. The large cast allows for impressive ensembles in addition to the ballets many solos of distinctive character and pas de deux of disturbing eroticism. This ballet, bursting with intensity, madness and passion, proves that sometimes the truth is more scandalous than fiction.195 mins- 2 intervals

  • 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.

  • 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.
