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.

Blockers
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Kay Cannon
  • Cast: Leslie Mann, John Cena, Ike Barinholtz, Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon, Geraldine Viswanathan

Three teenage girls (Newton, Adlon and Viswanathan) make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night, but their parents (Mann, Cena and Barinholtz) scramble to stop them. It may sound horrible, but even with all the slapstick stupidity it’s a funny and rigorous exploration of the parent-teen dynamic, with a surprisingly moving conclusion.

Death Wish
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Eli Roth
  • Cast: Bruce Willis, Vincent D'Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue

Chicago surgeon Paul Kersey (Willis) takes the law into his own hands after his wife is killed and his daughter left in a coma. At a time when the issue of gun control is raging, Roth’s distasteful remake of Winner’s original amounts to a campaign ad for the NRA.

Every Day

Every Day
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 37min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Michael Sucsy
  • Cast: Angourie Rice, Justice Smith, Maria Bello, Michael Cram

Rhiannon (Rice) is a wholesome high-schooler dating feckless cool kid Justin (Smith). When Justin is inhabited by a nomadic soul named ‘A’, Rhiannon forms a connection with him. Rice is an appealing and emotionally accessible lead, but the film is soft-focus and the story (based on David Levithan’s novel) has been stripped down to just the romance.

Ghost Stories

Ghost Stories
  • 2017
  • 1h 38min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jeremy Dyson, Andy Nyman
  • Cast: Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther, Nicholas Burns

Anthology movie in which three twisted tales are presented as three unexplained hauntings which sceptical Professor Goodman (Nyman) has to investigate. Beautifully shot and with plenty of frights, but maybe not enough surprises, it’s playful and wryly funny enough for the shocks to have full impact.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Gracey
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

  • 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.

Insidious: The Last Key
  • 2018
  • 1h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam Robitel
  • Cast: Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson

Parapsychologist Dr Elise Rainier (Shaye) faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet – in her own family home. An unexpectedly moving fourth instalment features and excellent performance from the charismatic Shaye, and sensitive themes of silencing women and domestic abuse are well-handled.

Isle of Dogs
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Wes Anderson
  • Cast: Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Kunichi Nomura, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Courtney B. Vance, Fisher Stevens, Mari Natsuki, Harvey Keitel, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Bob Balaban, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton

When the corrupt Mayor of Megasaki City sends all the dogs to Trash Island, his 12-year-old ward Atari (Rankin) goes there to find out what happened to his beloved Spots (Schreiber). Sensationally rendered stop-motion tribute to Japanese cinema, rich in detail and full of deadpan heroism and epic ineptitude. Delightful.

The Leisure Seeker
  • 2017
  • Italy / France
  • 1h 52min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Paolo Virzì
  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Donald Sutherland, Christian McKay

Ella (Mirren) is terminally ill, and her husband John (Sutherland), has a form of Alzheimer’s which only kicks in when required by the plot, so they decide to drive their trusty Winnebago to Florida. Meandering, mildly entertaining, tear-stained road trip that just about works thanks to the commitment of Mirren and Sutherland to their characters.

Love, Simon

Love, Simon
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • Directed by: Greg Berlanti
  • Cast: Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner, Katherine Langford

Simon (Robinson) is a young high school student who hasn’t yet come out as gay, who starts swapping email with an anonymous fellow student calling himself ‘Blue’. The script gets bogged down in irrelevant subplots and the first kiss is delayed until the end credits, making it a disappointing cop-out as gay teen movies go; indies handle this much better.

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

  • 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.

  • 2018

  • Cast: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance

Wade (Sheridan) lives in a city wasteland of rusting trailers called The Stacks, spending his days playing (along with nearly everyone else) in a VR world called the OASIS. But then OASIS’s creator dies; who will inherit his fortune? Eye-popping blockbuster, relentlessly entertaining but without much emotion or involvement.

Truth or Dare
  • 2018
  • USA

  • 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.

  • 2018

  • 1h 49min

  • Cast: Storm Reid, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, André Holland, Zach Galifianakis, Oprah Winfrey

Meg (Reid) is a headstrong, mixed-race 13-year-old who has to deal with the usual adolescent issues while searching for her missing scientist father (Pine); she soon goes on a planet-hopping adventure. Reid is an utterly charming heroine and the film allows her to be opinionated and self-doubting; an inspirational watch for all ages and genders.
