Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Robert Rodriguez
  • Cast: Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, Keean Johnson

Three years after a savage war, Dr Dyson Ido (Waltz) finds a cyborg head on a scrapheap, which he gives to a body and names Alita. The story is a bit of a grab-bag of ideas, but Salazar shines via motion capture as a truly splendid teen action heroine.

All is True

All is True
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Lolita Chakrabarti, Jack Colgrave Hirst

William Shakespeare (Branagh) comes back to Stratford to find his family estranged from him. Branagh and screenwriter Elton search for the man behind the myth, but lose sight of the genius; there’s no sense of the writer’s intelligence or empathy and only McKellen as the Earl of Southampton brings any life to the proceedings.

Boy Erased

Boy Erased
  • 2018
  • US/Australia
  • 1h 55min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Joel Edgerton
  • Cast: Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, Joel Edgerton

Jared (Hedges) is the 18-year-old son of a Baptist pastor in Arkansas, struggling with his sexuality in a state where to be gay is a source of shame. Edgerton rarely goes for the emotional jugular in this tale of gay conversion therapy; it’s a well-crafted, if not very illuminating look at a deeply disturbing practice.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Can You Ever Forgive Me?
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 46min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Marielle Heller
  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells

Lee Israel (McCarthy) is a writer facing financial difficulties who starts forging letters from famous writers as a way to earn money. McCarthy gives one of her best performances as the stubborn Lee, and Grant is excellent as her buddy Jack. Deviously funny and deeply moving.

Cold Pursuit

Cold Pursuit
  • 2019
  • UK/Norway/US/Canada
  • 1h 58min
  • Directed by: Hans Petter Moland
  • Cast: Emmy Rossum, Liam Neeson, Laura Dern

Nels (Neeson) is a snowplough driver who keeps his small fictional Colorado town moving, but when his teenage son (Richardson) turns up dead, he goes out for revenge. Two hours of Neeson beating, strangling and shooting people, with double handfuls of racism and sexism, make for an aimless, bigoted, dumb waste of time.

Escape Room

Escape Room
  • 2019
  • South Africa / US
  • 1h 40min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam Robitel
  • Cast: Deborah Ann Woll, Taylor Russell, Logan Miller

A group of people find themselves solving a series of deadly puzzles in an escape room. The acting is convincing and the whole thing is pleasingly put together, but it’s also ridiculously silly, and you may find that if you can solve the puzzles sooner than the characters can, your patience may be tested.

Fighting with My Family

Fighting with My Family
  • 2019
  • UK/US
  • 1h 48min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Stephen Merchant
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Lena Headey, Nick Frost, Jack Lowden, Vince Vaughn, Dwayne Johnson

Based on the true story of WWE champion Saraya-Jade Bevis, aka Paige (Pugh), following her journey from dismal Norwich via Florida boot camp to the stadium. Pugh and Lowden as her brother are good, but the innuendo is crude, the characterisation shallow and the attempt to depict Saraya’s rise as some kind of feminist revolution is unconvincing.

Green Book

Green Book
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Peter Farrelly
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Don Shirley (Ali), virtuoso pianist, is chauffeured around the American South in 1962 by his Italian-American driver Tony (Mortensen), and much learning ensues. It’s beautifully made and very worthy, but far too gentle and broad to be effective; Tony, rather than Don, is the heart of the story and it lacks bite.

Happy Death Day 2U
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Christopher Landon
  • Cast: Jessica Rothe, Ruby Modine, Israel Broussard

Tree (Rothe) finds herself trapped in a time loop again, after her boyfriend’s roommate’s science project goes haywire. Slightly more grown-up than the 2017 original, this has some genuinely moving moments and it’s a lot of fun, and the few wobbles in tone and consistency don’t detract from an entertaining sequel.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dean DeBlois
  • Cast: Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington, Justin Rupple, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, F. Murray Abraham, Gerard Butler

Hiccup (voiced by Baruchel) is now a chief with growing responsibilities, while Toothless the dragon is in love; but then dragon hunter Grimmel (Abraham) is determined to spoil people’s fun. The franchise is running out of steam; there’s too much going on and the central bond is obscured.

If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Regina King

Tish (Layne) and Fonny (James) are friends since childhood who grow up to realise that they’re soulmates, but then Fonny gets arrested and charged with rape. Jenkins’s follow-up to Moonlight is an enchanting, heartbreaking love story, adapted from James Baldwin’s novel. A great film with anger in its tender heart.

Instant Family
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne, Isabela Moner

Pete (Wahlberg) and Elie (Byrne) are a couple who decide to try fostering children, and they take in teenage Lizzy (Moner) and her siblings. A good vehicle for Wahlberg’s blue-collar charm, with humour that feels earned and details that have the smack of real experience. Manipulative but likable.

The Kid Who Would Be King

The Kid Who Would Be King
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 2h
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Cornish
  • Cast: Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Dean Chaumoo, Tom Taylor, Rhianna Dorris, Angus Imrie, Patrick Stewart, Rebecca Ferguson

Alex (Serkis), escaping from school bullies, finds a sword sticking out of a cement post which he and mate Bedders (Chaumoo) decide is Excalibur. Entertaining, but with too many unanswered questions, and Ferguson as Morgana is wasted for most of the movie. Shame, because the kids are terrific.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

  • US / Australia / Denmark
  • 1h 46min
  • U
  • Directed by: Rob Schrab
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Tiffany Haddish, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Stephanie Beatriz

Despite living in the Mad Max-style nightmare of Apocalypseburg, Emmet (Pratt) is still his cheery self—until his friends are kidnapped by the alien queen (Haddish). There are lots of good jokes and plenty of fun, but it’s not quite up to the magical original.

On the Basis of Sex
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mimi Leder
  • Cast: Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux

Biopic of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Jones), focusing on her journey from law student in the 50s to crusading lawyer in the 70s. Jones brings emotional conviction and power to the role, and her chemistry with Hammer as her lawyer husband Marty is sweet. Inspirational stuff.

Vice

Vice
  • 2018
  • US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam McKay
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jesse Plemons, Sam Rockwell

The rise of Dick Cheney (Bale), from electrical worker in Wisconsin to US vice-president, presented as cheeky, dark, inventive comedy. Bale gives a compelling, shape-shifting performance and Adams as his ambitious wife Lynne is scintillating, as are Carell and Rockwell. A super-smart and disconcerting history lesson.
