Loving Vincent

Loving Vincent
  • 2017
  • UK / Poland
  • 1h 35min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Dorota Kobiela/Hugh Welchman
  • Cast: Douglas Booth, Jerome Flynn, Robert Gulaczyk

Armand Roulin (Booth) tries to find out what happened to the late artist Vincent can Gogh (Gulaczyk). Live action footage was hand-painted over to give a van Gogh-like effect, and the result is visually intoxicating, adding up more than the novelty of its sumptuous parts.

The Matrix

The Matrix
  • 1999
  • US / Australia
  • 2h 16min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andy Wachowski, Larry Wachowski
  • Written by: Andy Wachowski, Larry Wachowski
  • Cast: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, Joe Pantoliano

Absolutely gobsmacking science fiction thriller boasting cutting edge special effects, rocking action sequences, a smart story and an immensely entertaining cartoon sensibility (the film was storyboarded by comic artist Geoff Darrow). In the future day-to-day life is merely a scam, a matrix camouflaging reality - a post-apocalyptic nightmare world in which humankind are a power source for domineering super-computers. Only Reeves' cyber hero, Neo, and a gang of hacker pirates stand between the evil technology and their race's extinction.

The Old Man and The Gun

The Old Man and The Gun
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: David Lowery
  • Cast: Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Sissy Spacek

Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Redford), a career criminal and perpetual prison escapee, who’s being chased by Texas lawman John Hunt (Affleck). Redford says it’ll be his last film and it’s a fitting ending: playful, highly entertaining and made with great skill.

The Queen's Corgi

The Queen's Corgi
  • 2019
  • Belgium
  • 1h 25min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Vincent Kesteloot, Ben Stassen
  • Cast: Jack Whitehall, Julie Walters, Sheridan Smith, Ray Winstone, Matt Lucas, Tom Courtenay

Rex (Whitehall) is a corgi living in Buckingham Palace until Donald Trump (Culshaw) and his oversexed dog Mitzi (Hadland) arrive. Poorly judged Belgian animated feature with lame gags normalising sexual assault and bizarre underworld stereotypes and drug-based humour. Kids are unlikely to take offence but adults may feel that explaining the jokes aren’t worth the bother.

The Secret Life of Pets 2

The Secret Life of Pets 2
  • 2019
  • USA / Japan / France
  • Directed by: Chris Renaud, Jonathan del Val
  • Cast: Patton Oswalt, Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart

Max (Oswalt) lives with owner Katie (Kemper) in apartment with other pets Gidget (Slate), Chloe (Bell) and Snowball (Hart); then Max becomes worried about Katie’s new baby Max. There’s not enough humour, charm or sense to win over parents, but kids will enjoy the vivid animation and animal antics.

  • Directed by: Jon Watts
  • Cast: Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, J. B. Smoove, Jacob Batalon, Martin Starr, Marisa Tomei, Jake Gyllenhaal

After the events of Endgame, Peter Parker (Holland) is dealing with the loss of his mentor when he and his schoolmates find themselves fighting the Elementals. An enjoyable mix of storming special effects and road trip silliness which manages to work in the believable development in the relationship between Peter and MJ (Zendaya). It returns the fun to the Marvel canon.

  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Joan Cusack, Blake Clark, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Estelle Harris, Jodi Benson, Michael Keaton, Jeff Pidgeon, Kristen Schaal, Bonnie Hunt, Timothy Dalton, Jeff Garlin, Laurie Metcalf, Lori Alan

Woody (Tom Hanks) joins new owner Bonnie at kindergarten where he finds a new purpose in protecting her improvised toy Forky (Hale). Pixar manages to further the story with fine new characters and a satisfyingly teary conclusion, for a fine last chapter in the saga.

  • UK
  • 1h 52min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon

Singer-songwriter Jack (Patel) is knocked unconscious when a bus hits his bike, and he wakes up in a world where the Beatles are unknown. There’s some fine comedy (including from Sheeran, playing himself) but it gets less surefooted; Patel can’t stop Jack from being rather morose and it’s neither a classic Curtis rom-com nor as infectiously euphoric as Boyle’s best work.
