Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 29min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt

Thanos (Brolin) aims to become all-powerful, in the first part of this two-part superhero mash-up. Death, destruction, torture and sacrifice are the order of the day, in a grand space opera that mixes tragedy with pathos, fleshed out with the usual Marvel humour. Truly remarkable.

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.

Moulin Rouge!

Sing-a-long-a Moulin Rouge
  • 2001
  • US/Aus
  • 1h 48min
  • 12
  • Directed by: Baz Luhrmann
  • Written by: Baz Luhrmann, Craig Pearce
  • Cast: Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, Jim Broadbent, Richard Roxburgh, John Leguizamo, Jacek Koman, Caroline O'Connor

Luhrmann's celebration of Montmartre is a delirious jukebox musical, mashing up Labelle with Nirvana and generally playing out like La traviata on steroids. Gloriously extravagant if you're in the mood, possibly overheated if you're not, it's a suitably over-the-top climax to its director's Red Curtain trilogy.

Oklahoma

Oklahoma
  • 1955
  • US
  • 2h 22min
  • U
  • Directed by: Fred Zinnemann
  • Written by: Sonya Levien, William Ludwig
  • Cast: Gordon MacRae, Gloria Grahame, Gene Nelson, Charlotte Greenwood, Shirley Jones

Fine film adaptation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical about a cowboy who wins the hand of his gal despite the best efforts of a bad 'ole hired gun. It won an Oscar for the music, and quite rightly so. Yee-ha!

Peter Pan

Peter Pan
  • 1953
  • US
  • 1h 17min
  • U
  • Directed by: Clyde Geronimi/Wilfred Jackson
  • Written by: JM Barrie, Ted Sears
  • Cast: Voices of Bobby Driscoll, Kathryn Beaumont, Hans Conried

Disney classic adaptation of JM Barrie's beloved story. Wendy and her brothers are whisked away to the magical world of Neverland with the hero of their stories, Peter Pan.

Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit
  • 2018
  • US / Australia
  • 1h 33min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Will Gluck
  • Cast: Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, Sam Neill, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki, Margot Robbie, James Corden

Mischievous bunny Peter (Corden) and his sisters Flopsy (Robbie), Mopsy (Debicki) and Cotton-Tail (Ridley) contend with Thomas (Gleeson), an uptight cottage garden owner. The interweaving of CGI animals with live action is flawless, Gleeson proves to have fine comedy chops and there’s a lot of slapstick, but anyone looking for Beatrix Potter will be sorely disappointed.

Rampage

Rampage
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Brad Peyton
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Åkerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton, Jeffrey Dean Morgan

When a space-born pathogen starts turning random animals dangerous across the USA, primatologist Davis (Johnson) is on the case. Splendidly silly monster movie which swerves between knowing humour, endearing stupidity and an over-long CGI-heavy finale; Morgan’s turn as a gung-ho Homeland Security agent is a hoot.

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.
