My Cousin Rachel

My Cousin Rachel
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Michell
  • Cast: Sam Claflin, Rachel Weisz, Holliday Grainger

A young Englishman plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms. Weisz is a fine choice for the eponymous enigma, while Claflin is superb as her heedless admirer Philip but the film feels desperately abbreviated.

Snatched

Snatched
  • 2017
  • US
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jonathan Levine
  • Cast: Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn, Wanda Sykes, Joan Cusack

When Emily (Schumer) is dumped by her boyfriend and fired from her job, she decides to take her mother (Hawn) on a romantic getaway to Ecuador. Then they get kidnapped. Madcap escapades, gross-out and slapstick abound, and while not all the jokes land and it’s more than a bit culturally insensitive, there’s fun to be had.

Transformers 5: The Last Knight

Transformers 5: The Last Knight
  • 2017
  • US
  • 148 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Michael Bay
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins

It turns out that the Transformers shape human history, as Oxford lecturer Viviane (Haddock), butch inventor Cade (Wahlberg) and an English Earl (Hopkins) charge about from action sequence to action sequence. Wahlberg and Haddock have zero chemistry and it’s a deadening pile-up of CGI carnage, grating quips and joyless pummelling.

Whitney: Can I Be Me

Whitney: Can I Be Me
  • 2017
  • 105 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nick Broomfield/Rudi Dolezal
  • Written by: Nick Broomfield

Documentary about the life and death of singing sensation Whitney Houston, using a fairly traditional format of talking heads and archive footage. Broomfield and Dolezal trace her journey with sensitivity and assurance and if a few puzzle pieces are missing, there are some revealing interviews.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 133 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Patty Jenkins
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright

Diana (Gadot) is a princess of the Amazons, who rescues WW1 pilot / secret agent interest Steve (Pine) and resolves to end the war. Stylish and exciting, with a top cast, touches of real humour and tragedy, and spiffing action sequences, anchored by a strong and highly likeable performance from Gadot.

The cinema on Portobello Road has survived two world wars, including a bombing, and a narrow escape from being turned into a bingo hall. Now over 100 years old, the beautiful arch surrounding the screen is protected by English Heritage, and a specially-designed expanding monitor ensures that the viewing experience is enhanced rather than compromised by the preserved architecture. There's spacious leather armchair seating with footstools and two-seater sofas available in the back row, and a cocktail bar open for 30 minutes before screenings. The discerning programme is a combination of art house, classic and mainstream films that have received critical acclaim.
