The Addams Family

The Addams Family
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Conrad Vernon, Greg Tiernan
  • Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, Allison Janney

The titular family, Morticia (Theron), Gomez (Isaac), Wednesday (Moretz) and Pugsley (Wolfhard), are targeted by reality TV host Margaux Needler (Janney). The voice cast is decent and the style pays homage to Charles Addams' drawings, but it misses the darkly Gothic spirit of both the original and the Barry Sonnenfeld films, being disconcertingly family-friendly.

The Aeronauts

The Aeronauts
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Tom Harper
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones,

In 1862, meteorology pioneer James Glaisher (Redmayne) takes flight in a hot air balloon piloted by Amelia Wren (Jones). Old-school adventure with spectacular effects and a neatly layered screenplay; any predictability is offset by the film’s charm and the fond chemistry between Redmayne and Jones.

Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 33min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mike Flanagan
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, Cliff Curtis

Danny (McGregor) is still recovering from the events at the Overlook Hotel, when his young friend Abra (Curran) is targeted by an evil cult led by Rose the Hat (Ferguson). McGregor is affecting, Curran is impressive and Ferguson is deeply sinister, but jarring imagery and laboured references to The Shining break the spell.

The Irishman

The Irishman
  • 2019
  • US
  • 3h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Anna Paquin

The story of mob enforcer and union official Frank Sheeran (De Niro) and his relationship with Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino) and Mafia string-puller Russell Bufalino (Pesci). The de-aging technology is easy to forgive thanks to the masterly filmmaking, and although there’s no room for a complex female character it’s gripping, sombre and builds to a shattering conclusion.

Joker

Joker
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

Last Christmas

Last Christmas
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh

Kate (Clarke) is a Yugoslavian immigrant whose life is going downhill until she meets the mysterious bike-riding Tom (Golding), who seems too good to be true. Thompson and Kimmings’ script is a saccharine romantic fantasy and George Michael’s music isn’t always incorporated effectively, but its heart is in the right place.

Little Monsters

Little Monsters
  • 2019
  • UK / Australia / US
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Abe Forsythe
  • Cast: Lupita Nyong'o, Josh Gad, Alexander England

Miss Caroline (Nyong’o) is a sunny primary school teacher who leads a school trip to the local farm with accompanying adult Dave (England), only to encounter a zombie outbreak. Nyong’o completely steals the show as the ukulele-playing teacher, but England is charming enough, and while it lays the laughs on thick, it doesn’t scrimp on the horror.

Midway

Midway
  • 2019
  • China / US
  • 2h 18min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roland Emmerich
  • Cast: Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Woody Harrelson

The story of the Battle of Midway, the WWII encounter that shifted the war in the Pacific in the Americans’ favour. Emmerich assembles a solid if rather uninspiring cast, the CGI-honed battle sequences are competent but not exactly nerve-shredding and the characters are two-dimensional.

A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon

Farmageddon: A Shaun the Sheep Movie
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 26min
  • U
  • Directed by: Richard Starzak
  • Cast: Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes

Shaun and his gang of sheep are getting up to mischief that puts them at odds with sensible sheepdog Bitzer; then an alien craft arrives. This dialogue-free pristinely shambolic stop-motion romp is, in its deft way, a crowd-pleaser for everyone, with enough Close Encounters references to keep parents interested.
