  • US
  • 2h 17min

  • Directed by: James Cameron
  • Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Carrie Henn, Michael Biehn, Lance Henriksen, William Hope, Paul Reiser

Revived from a 57-year snooze in deep space, Warrant Officer Weaver is cajoled into joining a marine rescue mission to the planet that is home for the original alien beastie. Unrelentingly paced with a terrifically gutsy performance from Weaver, this nerve-shredding sequel not only matches its predecessor but cannily surpasses it. An Oscar winner for special effects.

  • Directed by: David Wilson
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, Guy Pearce

Ray Garrison (Diesel) is slain by baddie Martin Axe (Kebbell) but then brought back to life with nanotechnology by Dr Harting (Pearce). Debut director Wilson is well aware how daft it all is and delivers a flashy, fast-paced action movie that never takes itself too seriously. Big, dumb fun.

  • Directed by: Stephen Gaghan
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Octavia Spencer, Tom Holland, Craig Robinson, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Marion Cotillard

Dr Dolittle (Downey) is grieving the death of his wife Lily when a young boy (Collett) and Lady Rose (Laniado) both come to ask him for help. The plot is a barely connected bunch of scenes, action sequences are hinted at but unrealised. The worst adaptation of Hugh Lofting’s stories to date: all this talent wasted in a big furry disappointment.

Earnest priest Jason Miller steps in to save a poor little possessed girl in this hugely effective scarefest. Now re-released in remastered form, with a super stereo soundtrack (so you can hear those obscenities in full). Dead good, dead scary, dead priest.

  • 1978

  • 1h 50min

  • Directed by: Randal Kleiser
  • Cast: John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing, Jeff Conaway

Sandy (Newton-John) meets Danny (Travolta) and they have a summer romance, but he doesn't expect to see her turn up at his school the following year. There follows teenage angst, misunderstandings and a joyful reunion. Despite its dubious 'change yourself to attract the person you want to be with' message, it's a good, romp with tons of catchy songs.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min

  • 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.

DiCaprio stars as Don Cobb, a thief who is the master of the art of extraction, stealing secrets from the minds of the unconscious. The business is risky and has resulted the loss of everything he once held dear. Now he is being offered a chance of redemption, but at a cost, and up against a dangerous enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

  • 2h 4min

  • Directed by: Leigh Whannell
  • Cast: Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer

Cecilia (Moss) flees her abusive partner, optics experimenter Adrian (Jackson-Cohen), and then hears that he’s dead; but he still seems to be around. Whannell milks minimalist set-ups for maximum effect, and Moss projects raw dread and ‘final girl’-ish fortitude. A low-budget but high-resonance exercise in sweaty-palmed suspense.

  • 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 photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
  • 2003
  • US / NZ
  • 3h 30min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Cast: Elijah Wood, Billy Boyd, Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Viggo Mortensen, Christopher Lee

A remarkable end to a remarkable series of films, the journey of Frodo, Sam and Gollum is the pièce de résistance of the trilogy. The tension-filled journey forces both Gollum and Sam to show their true colours as Frodo suffers under the burden of the ring. All around is war as Aragorn fights to reclaim what is rightfully his. Jackson's vision is awesome. The Return of the King is some kind of beautiful, some kind of masterpiece. Unmissable.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
  • 2002
  • US / New Zealand
  • 2h 59min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Cast: Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Sean Astin, Viggo Mortensen, Andy Serkis, Liv Tyler, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Orlando Bloom, Bernard Hill, Christopher Lee, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, Karl Urban, David Wenham, Brad Dourif

The second part of Jackson's ambitious three-part adaptation of JRR Tolkien's epic fantasy adventure might lack the storytelling verve of the first film, but in terms of spectacle it takes blockbuster filmmaking to the next level. Continuing where 'The Fellowship of the Ring' left off, without any recap of the story so far, 'The Two Towers' follows three separate plotlines: Frodo's trek to Modor to destroy the ring, his fellow Hobbits' meeting with the Ents (walking, talking trees) and the human/elf/dwarf combo Aragon, Legolas and Gimili's part in the siege of the human stronghold Helm's Deep by the evil wizard Sauraman's 10,000-strong army. The latter provides the hour-long climax to the film, and it's an awesome thing to behold. But Frodo's meeting with the ring's previous owner, Gollum, also impresses – here's a fully computer animated character that generates as much emotion as any of the living performers. The film suffers from being the second act of Tolkien's tale, but for Jackson's three hour film vision, there's no way around that.

Matilda

Matilda
  • 1996
  • US
  • 1h 38min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Danny DeVito
  • Written by: Nicholas Kazan, Robin Swicord
  • Cast: Mara Wilson, Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman, Embeth Davidtz, Pam Ferris

Capturing the delicious wickedness of Roald Dahl's writing, director De Vito fully exploits exaggeration and playful camera work to tell the tale of a gifted child who uses her super brain to outwit her neglectful parents. Offsetting the loveable Matilda against a series of horribly inflated bad characters, the film's empowering message for children will appeal to the mischevious kid in everyone.

  • US

  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Written by: Jason Segel, Nicholas Stoller
  • Cast: Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones

When Muppet fans Gary (Segel), his girlfriend Mary (Adams) and brother Walter (a puppet) learn that oil millionaire Tex Richman (Cooper) plans to demolish the Muppet theatre, it's time to reunite the original cast. If the plot could be fresher, the well-chosen guest stars, self-referential humour and old-school bonhomie should raise a smile.

My Spy

My Spy
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Segal
  • Cast: Dave Bautista, Kristen Schaal, Ken Jeong

JJ (Bautista) is a CIA agent who when carrying out surveillance is befriended by nine-year-old Sophie (Coleman). Amiably lightweight but all-too-disposable family comedy which seems to have been assembled with warmed-up elements of other films; it doesn't do tough very well, but isn't notably warm & fuzzy either.

  • Cast: Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin, Martin Balsam, John McIntire, Janet Leigh

Hitch's misogynistic masterpiece has a young secretary take off to hicksville with a bagful of her boss' money. Unfortunately for her, she chooses to put up at the Bates' Motel, run by that nice Norman boy. The ironic dialogue ('Mother's not quite herself today') make it a joy to catch any time around. We liked it, didn't we mother … mother?

  • Written by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: John Travolta, Samuel L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, Maria de Medeiros, Ving Rhames, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Christopher Walken, Bruce Willis

Much more ambitious than Reservoir Dogs, the most awaited second feature of the 90s has many scenes that crackle with Tarantino wit, and a few others that fall flat as the writer-director bravely experiments. Interlocking stories in the pulp crime manner concern hitmen, ailing boxers, gang bosses and their molls, drug fiends, and assorted riff-raff.

Sonic the Hedgehog
  • 2020

  • Directed by: Jeff Fowler
  • Cast: James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter

Sonic (Schwartz) finds himself alone on Earth, on the run from the authorities, with villain Dr Robotnik (Carrey) also in pursuit. A derivative script and a rather tired performance from Carrey aside, it’s got disarming charm and cheek and Sonic is a cutely cartoonish hero.

  • Directed by: Irvin Kershner
  • Written by: George Lucas, Leigh Brackett, Lawrence Kasdan
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, David Prowse, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Frank Oz

Arguably the best Star Wars film, the middle part of the original trilogy is packed with drama, tension, humour and a belter of a cliffhanger. Much of its impact has been lost to familiarity (that twist) but it's a masterpiece, impeccably directed by George Lucas' old UCLA tutor Kershner.
