Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame
  • 2019
  • US
  • 3h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana

Five years after Thanos’s victory, the Avengers are in despair until Ant-Man (Rudd) kicks the story back into action. The final film in the saga verges on fanservice, but there’s intelligent character development, everyone (except Johansson) is given enough to do, and some arcs have a truly poignant sense of closure. Playful, inventive and highly entertaining.

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel
  • 2019
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck
  • Cast: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Kazinsky

Danvers (Larson) is a fighter with the Kree Starforce who finds herself on Earth, and encountering Agent Nick Fury (Jackson). The storyline doesn’t give Larson a lot of time to establish a persona, but her charm, style and ass-kicking make her Marvel’s coolest customer and whatever it lacks in heart, it makes up for with sheer likeability.

Dragged Across Concrete

Dragged Across Concrete
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 2h 39min
  • 18
  • Directed by: S Craig Zahler
  • Cast: Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, Laurie Holden, Tory Kittles

Henry (Kittles) is an ex-con who finds himself in conflict with disgraced lawmen Ridgeman (Gibson) and Lurasetti (Vaughn). It’s an epic grindhouse thriller with multiple exploding craniums but Gibson is on his best form for years, and Zahler will one day make a classic in the Don Siegel vain, even if this patchy but compelling number isn’t quite it.

Dumbo

Dumbo
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Alan Arkin

In this remake of the 1941 film, one-armed circus worker Holt (Farrell) is struggling to reconnect with his bereft children while a certain large-eared pachyderm is figuring out the ropes. It looks lovely, but there’s a lot of extra plot shovelled in and it’s arguably overloaded, compared to the sincerity and simplicity of the original.

Greta
  • 2018
  • Ireland/US
  • 1h 38min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Neil Jordan
  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe

Frances (Moretz) is a young waitress trying to make her way in New York, whose life changes when she returns a found handbag to its owner, Greta (Huppert). A stalker thriller with full commitment from the leads, but littered with plot holes; a nightmarish fantasy which falls apart if you think about it.

Pet Sematary

Pet Sematary
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Kevin Kölsch, Dennis Widmyer
  • Cast: Jason Clarke, John Lithgow, Amy Seimetz

Louis (Clarke) takes his wife Rachel (Seimetz) and two children from Boston and settles in Maine, in a property that includes a spooky pet cemetery. The second adaptation of Stephen King’s novel has panache and escalates to a grim and grisly finale. Laurence is particularly good as the daughter, Ellie.

Red Joan

Red Joan
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Trevor Nunn
  • Cast: Judy Dench, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes

Joan (Cookson when young, Dench later on) arrives at Cambridge in 1938 and is beguiled by radical politics into becoming a Soviet spy. Nunn’s first movie in over 20 years is a plodding, pedestrian affair, and while Dench captures her befuddlement and steely resolve, it fails to find the drama in a story inspired by intriguing real life events.

  • US
  • Directed by: David F. Sandberg
  • Cast: Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, Djimon Hounsou

Billy Batson (Angel) is a teenager raised by a foster family, who’s given magic powers by The Wizard (Hounsou): if he shouts ‘SHAZAM!’ he becomes the titular cape-wearing adult (Levi). A superhero movie bursting with humour and heart, with a mischievous performance from Levi, inspired jokes, emotion and surprising cameos.

  • Cast: Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul Mateen II, Anna Diop

Adelaide (Nyong’o) and Gabe (Duke) arrive at their holiday home with their children, only to be confronted by a mysteriously familiar foursome. Peele’s follow up to Get Out is a neat twist on the home invasion story, with beautifully executed set pieces, and Nyong’o is phenomenal as both protagonist and chief aggressor. Fresh and arresting.

Wonder Park
  • 2019

  • Cast: Brianna Denski, Jennifer Garner, Ken Hudson Campbell

June (Mali and Denski) is faced with being shipped off to math camp while her mother (Garner) seeks medical assistance; then she finds herself in a parallel universe where she has to save a theme park. An animated film with big ideas and some notable omissions, ultimately a slight but rewardingly bittersweet experience.
