At Eternity's Gate

At Eternity's Gate
  • 2018
  • Switzerland/UK/France/US/Ireland
  • 1h 51min
  • Directed by: Julian Schnabel
  • Cast: Willem Dafoe, Rupert Friend, Oscar Isaac

Vincent Van Gogh (Dafoe) discovers the landscape of Arles and meets the locals. Dafoe gives a supremely committed performance, by turns touchingly sweet, achingly vulnerable and a bit scary, and Delhomme’s cinematography is ravishing; possibly one of the definitive films about this troubled genius.

Back to the Future Part 2

Back to the Future Part II
  • 1989
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Robert Zemeckis
  • Cast: Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Thomas F Wilson, Lea Thompson, Elisabeth Shue

Finishing with a big tease sequence of highlights for the mid-1990 scheduled Back to the Future Part 3, this could be the longest movie trailer in Hollywood history. Once again Michael has to outfox Biff, this time zooming forwards as well as backwards in the time machine. Directed and played with terrific verve, 'BTF2' moves so fast from one set-piece to the next that there's no time to reflect on the basic ridiculousness of the plot.

Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice
  • 1988
  • US
  • 1h 32min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Cast: Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, Jeffrey Jones, Glenn Shadix, Sylvia Sidney

Recently deceased and very charming New England couple have difficulty in adjusting to the afterlife. They eventually call on freelance bio-exorcist Betelgeuse (pronounced 'Beetle-juice') to deal with the problem in his own inimitable fashion. A movie of exuberantly eccentric cartoonish capers, which creates its own comic cosmos where the unexpected is the norm.

Dumbo

Dumbo
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Alan Arkin

In this remake of the 1941 film, one-armed circus worker Holt (Farrell) is struggling to reconnect with his bereft children while a certain large-eared pachyderm is figuring out the ropes. It looks lovely, but there’s a lot of extra plot shovelled in and it’s arguably overloaded, compared to the sincerity and simplicity of the original.

If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: KiKi Layne, Stephan James, Regina King

Tish (Layne) and Fonny (James) are friends since childhood who grow up to realise that they’re soulmates, but then Fonny gets arrested and charged with rape. Jenkins’s follow-up to Moonlight is an enchanting, heartbreaking love story, adapted from James Baldwin’s novel. A great film with anger in its tender heart.

Léon

Léon
  • 1994
  • France
  • 1h 50min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Luc Besson
  • Written by: Luc Besson
  • Cast: Jean Reno, Nathalie Portman, Gary Oldman.

When his neighbour's family is wiped out by crooked cops on a bungled drugs bust, ice cool hitman Leon finds himself looking after the sole survivor – 12-year-old Mathilde. Luc Besson's first film in English is, nevertheless, a French film in terms of style, editing and its boldness in story and theme.

The Longest Day

The Longest Day
  • 1962
  • US
  • 3h
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ken Annakin (British & French exteriors), Andrew Marton (American exteriors), Bernhard Wicki (German episodes), Gerd Oswald (parachute drop), Darryl F Zanuck (uncredited), John Wayne (uncredited)
  • Cast: John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Robert Mitchum, Sean Connery, Curd Jürgens, Richard Burton, Peter Lawford, Rod Steiger, Irina Demick, Gert Fröbe, Edmond O'Brien, Kenneth More

An incredible international line-up of stars and recreation of events on a grand scale makes this retelling of the Normandy invasions one of the most successful war movie epics of all time. Screen legends just keep on appearing amidst an Oscar-winning plethora of special effects and relentlessly pacy cinematography.

Paul Zerdin

Paul Zerdin

Paul Zerdin and his dysfunctional puppet family are back by popular demand with a brand-new UK tour. As well as starring everyone’s favourites Sam, Albert and Baby, there’ll be his new bodyguard, an urban fox, some hilarious audience participation - and a talking ice cream - all using a mixture of master puppeteering, state of the art animatronic wizardry and a unique blend of edgy comedy.   It's a quirk of British theatre that a man can get a standing ovation for spending the best part of 75 minutes on a stage talking to himself. It goes without saying that Paul’s skills are top notch – there's not a hint of movement from his lips and he has a strong command of a range of different voices but it’s his control of the puppets and sense of timing that brings his characters to life!   Don’t miss out on your chance to see the winner of America’s Got Talent and one of Britain’s finest entertainers.   ‘’The best ventriloquist Britain has discovered for many years…’’  The Stage

*“If you think the words ‘brilliant’ and ‘ventriloquist’ have no place in the same sentence, go and see Paul Zerdin for some brutal re-education”  * Evening Standard

Pretty Woman

Pretty Woman
  • 1990
  • US
  • 2h
  • 15
  • Directed by: Garry Marshall
  • Written by: JF Lawton
  • Cast: Richard Gere, Julia Roberts

In this hugely successful comedy-romance, Gere stars as an unfeeling financial wheeler-dealer discovering he is human after all when he spends a week in the company of Roberts' downhome goodtime girl. Conversely, she rediscovers her self-esteem by carrying off the role of his high society companion with charm, so the audience can feel happy for both of them. The outline might be as hackneyed as they come, but television veteran Marshall has just the right lightness of touch.

A Private War

A Private War
  • 2018
  • UK / US
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Matthew Heineman
  • Cast: Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Tom Hollander, Stanley Tucci

The story of the last years of Marie Colvin (Pike), celebrated war correspondent. Pike’s intrinsic frostiness is perfect for Colvin’s determination, resourcefulness and arrogance, and while Dornan, Hollander and Tucci are all good as (respectively) photographer, editor and lover, it’s Pike’s show, and a mesmerising, discomforting and inspiring one.

Red Joan

Red Joan
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Trevor Nunn
  • Cast: Judy Dench, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes

Joan (Cookson when young, Dench later on) arrives at Cambridge in 1938 and is beguiled by radical politics into becoming a Soviet spy. Nunn’s first movie in over 20 years is a plodding, pedestrian affair, and while Dench captures her befuddlement and steely resolve, it fails to find the drama in a story inspired by intriguing real life events.

The Sound Of Music
  • 1965

  • U
  • Directed by: Robert Wise
  • Written by: Howard Lindsay, Russel Crouse, Maria von Trapp, Ernest Lehman
  • Cast: Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Eleanor Parker, Richard Haydn, Peggy Wood, Charmian Carr

In the late 1930s, vivacious nun Maria (Andrews) introduces the Von Trapp children to the joys of music, and their widowed father (Plummer) to the joys of love as Nazism begins to sweep Austria. One of the great screen musicals, completely uncynical, and boasting a host of memorable songs and charm-sodden moments. And it's all based on a true story.

  • Directed by: Tom Harper
  • Cast: Jessie Buckley, Julie Walters, Sophie Okonedo

Rose-Lynn (Buckley) is a Glaswegian woman who, on leaving prison, resumes her quest for fame as a country music singer. A warm-hearted and inspiring tale, not without clichés in the Cinderella tradition, and Buckley is a genuine star in the ascendant.
