  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland

In the near future, Roy McBride (Pitt) is an astronaut searching for his father Clifford (Jones), himself a pioneering space explorer. But Roy’s classified mission turns deadly. Gray’s stellar third film is a huge step up, mixing horror and action with deeper themes and anchored by a dazzling turn from Pitt, who has never been better.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbez, Michael Peña, Eva Longoria, Danny Trejo

Dora (Moner) is a teenager who spent her childhood exploring the jungle with her parents (Longoria and Peña), but when her parents go missing, Dora leaves high school to find them. A sweet Spy Kids-style adventure that never serves up anything too scary, complex or upsetting for young viewers; Moner gives a warm and delightful performance and is the main reason to watch.

Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Hobbs and Shaw
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 16min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Leitch
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Roman Reigns, Eiza Gonzalez, Eddie Marsan, Cliff Curtis, Helen Mirren

Hobbs (Johnson) and Shaw (Statham) reluctantly team up to stop nasty Brixton (Elba) from doing bad things. It should have been a hoot, but while the two leads have proven comedy chops, a sketchy script doesn’t give them enough to do and there’s a general lack of imagination. The tank is half empty on this one.

  • US

  • Directed by: Lorene Scafaria
  • Cast: Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, Cardi B

Destiny (Wu) and Ramona (Lopez) are strippers who, with their friends, devise a way of getting more cash out of their clients. Wu gives a sophisticated performance and her dynamic with Lopez pops with convincing intensity, making for a raucous crime story that’s by turns gorgeous, funny and surprisingly moving.

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • 1981
  • US
  • 1h 55min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Paul Freeman, Ronald Lacey, John Rhys-Davies, Denholm Elliott

Ford plays adventuring archaeologist Indiana Jones, who almost bites off more than he can chew when he turns up at the Ark of the Covenant in Nazi-infested wartime Egypt. Return to the breathless excitement of the Saturday morning serial with this rollercoaster of a movie, which is probably better than either of its sequels. Tongue held very firmly in cheek.

It Chapter Two

It Chapter Two
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andy Muschietti
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Skarsgård, Bill Hader

Twenty-seven years after the events of the first film, the town experiences a series of attacks, causing the Losers to reunite. Darker-toned than the first one, it has an impactful story about friendship and buried secrets and if the repetitive CGI lose their impact, there are still surprises in store.

The Kitchen

The Kitchen
  • 2019

  • 1h 42min
  • Directed by: Andrea Berloff
  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss

In Hell’s Kitchen in NYC in 1978, the Irish mafia husbands of three women (McCarthy, Haddish, Moss) are sent to prison, so the women set up a protection racket to make much-needed cash. The tone of the film becomes problematic but there are moments of fun, dark humour and tension along the way.

  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Cast: Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, James Earl Jones

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.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 2h 45min
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: James Marsden, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio

Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Rambo: Last Blood

Rambo: Last Blood
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Adrian Grunberg
  • Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Paz Vega, Óscar Jaenada

Rambo (Stallone) heads to Mexico to rescue his teenage niece (Monreal) from the cartels. Stallone is even more mumbly incoherent than he was in previous movies. Grunberg delivers a deluge of brutal death and torture scenes, the film’s depiction of Mexicans is frankly Trumpian, and Rambo himself unwittingly comes across as the worst monster of all.

  • Directed by: André Øvredal
  • Cast: Zoe Margaret Colletti, Michael Garza, Gabriel Rush

In Halloween 1968, a gang of teens visit a haunted mansion where they find a book that starts manifesting their fears. Flawed but lively horror flick with plenty going on even when the plot gets choppy, with a charged backdrop of political crisis, prejudice and gossip.

  • Directed by: Jon Watts
  • Cast: Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, J. B. Smoove, Jacob Batalon, Martin Starr, Marisa Tomei, Jake Gyllenhaal

After the events of Endgame, Peter Parker (Holland) is dealing with the loss of his mentor when he and his schoolmates find themselves fighting the Elementals. An enjoyable mix of storming special effects and road trip silliness which manages to work in the believable development in the relationship between Peter and MJ (Zendaya). It returns the fun to the Marvel canon.

Woody (Tom Hanks) joins new owner Bonnie at kindergarten where he finds a new purpose in protecting her improvised toy Forky (Hale). Pixar manages to further the story with fine new characters and a satisfyingly teary conclusion, for a fine last chapter in the saga.
