Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK/USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

  • UK/US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Johnny Depp

Newt (Redmayne) is back in London in 1927, while defeated Dark Wizard Grindelwald (Depp) has escaped and is heading to Paris. Law steps up as young Albus Dumbeldore and the film really flies in the final act, deepening characters and relationships and expanding the universe. A beast of a movie.

  • US
  • 1h 26min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Yarrow Cheney, Scott Mosier
  • Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely, Angela Lansbury

The Grinch (Cumberbatch) is a grumpy, green creature who despises Christmas so much that he plots to steal it. The animation is gorgeous, the pace is breezy and Cumberbatch does a decent job with the voice, but the film is stolen by the Grinch’s adorable dog Max.

Left to his own devices young Kevin (Culkin) has to deal with two bungling burglars (Pesci and Stern) who threaten to invade his peaceful haven. Jolly, if sadistic, scare-comedy antics produced by teen flick veteran John Hughes.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström, Joe Johnston
  • Cast: Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen, Richard E. Grant, Misty Copeland, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman

Clara (Foy) is a science-minded teenager whose late mother leaves her a jewellery egg which needs a key, the search for which involves journeying into magical realms. A random hodge-podge of underpowered set pieces loosely inspired by ETA Hoffmann, with the supporting cast chewing the scenery and a lot of grandiose settings but not much story.

Ralph Breaks the Internet

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rich Moore, Phil Johnston
  • Cast: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Taraji P. Henson

Ralph (Reilly) and Vanellope (Silverman) have to go to the internet when her game, Sugar Rush, needs a new part. What could have been yet another film about how amazeballs the internet is, becomes a savvy and sweet tale of friendship, subtly weaving the in-jokes with the emotional stakes.

Smallfoot

Smallfoot
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 36min
  • U
  • Directed by: Karey Kirkpatrick, Jason Reisig
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, James Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Danny DeVito, Gina Rodriguez, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry, Jimmy Tatro

Migo (Tatum) is a bigfoot who lives in an isolated community of his fellow creatures, who have heard rumours of the mythical ‘smallfoots’—humans. The songs are fun and drive the story forward, and child-pleasing slapstick is ably mixed with a thoughtful consideration of how a community can deal with challenges to its basic assumptions.
