Book Club

Book Club
  • 2018
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bill Holderman
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen

Four women (Keaton, Fonda, Bergen and Steenburgen) form a book club to read Fifty Shades of Grey, and in so doing reassess their lives. Irresistibly cheeky and shamelessly cheesy ensemble drama in which older women are placed in the centre of the action, with a torrent of innuendo delivered with relish by a superior cast.

Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Leitch
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Morena Baccarin

When tragedy splinters Wade Wilson’s own life, it takes a meeting with a mutant kid (Dennison) and vengeful cyborg Cable (Brolin) to renew his sense of purpose. Filthy, ferocious and funny, it surpasses its predecessor by doubling down on the gleeful self-awareness and excess; the whole cast shines, and the climax is surprisingly touching.

Hereditary
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 7min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ari Aster
  • Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro

Annie (Collette) is an artist who crafts a dollhouse depicting the traumas of her life, but then her family begins to feel they’re being haunted by her late mother. Unnervingly oppressive debut from Aster, exploring maternal guilt and family anxiety. Collette has one of her best roles in years.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

On Chesil Beach

On Chesil Beach
  • 2017
  • UK
  • Directed by: Dominic Cooke
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Emily Watson

Adaptation by Ian McEwan of his own novella, in which newlyweds Eddie (Howle) and Florence (Ronan) have an unsatisfying wedding night in a Dorset hotel in the early 60s. Overwrought and underwhelming, it’s filmed with a heavy hand by theatre director Cooke, making it for self-important and unengaging viewing.

Sherlock Gnomes

Sherlock Gnomes
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Stevenson
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

Show Dogs

Show Dogs
  • 2018
  • US / UK
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Raja Gosnell
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Natasha Lyonne, Alan Cumming

NYPD Rottweiler Max (Ludacris) goes undercover with FBI agent Frank (Arnett) at the Canini Invitational, a prestigious Vegas dog show. Arnett gives an uncharacteristically lacklustre turn, although Lyonne takes being the love interest in her stride, but despite spirited voice acting it’s both overly silly and vaguely moralistic.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.
