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.

McKellen: Playing the Part

McKellen: Playing the Part Live
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joe Stephenson
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Scott Chambers, Luke Evans, Frances Barber

A feature-length interview with Ian McKellen, in which the actor looks back over his long career as an actor and LGBT activist. Those who only know him from appearances in big movie franchises will find great clips from his theatre work, and McKellen is a born, unpretentious storyteller. Warm and endearing.

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.

Teatro Alla Scala: Andrea Chénier

Teatro Alla Scala: Andrea Chénier
  • 2017

Loosely based on the turbulent real life events of the poet of the same name. Along with the servant Carlo Gérard, Chénier falls in love with young aristocrat Maddalena, and will do anything to win over her heart. First performed at the Teatro Alla Scala in 1896, Umberto Giordano’s opera is brought to life by Russian soprano Anna Netrebko and her husband Yusif Eyvazov.

That Good Night

That Good Night
  • 2017
  • UK/Portugal
  • 1h 30min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Eric Styles
  • Cast: John Hurt, Sofia Helin, Max Brown

Ralph Maitland (Hurt) is a celebrated screenwriter coming to terms with his impending death, who receives a visit from his son Michael (Brown) and Michael’s girlfriend (Richards). A maudlin and rather predictable drama notable for being Hurt’s last major screen role; he gives a commanding but vanity-free performance, and has some good scenes with Dance as an angel of death figure.

Unsane

Unsane
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 37min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Steven Soderbergh
  • Cast: Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Jay Pharoah

Sawyer (Foy) is a financial analyst who was haunted by a stalker. She is duped into being committed into a mental hospital and becomes convinced that her former tormentor is a nurse. High-strung, grimy, claustrophobic B-pic from Soderbergh, shot on an iPhone 7 Plus, with a revelatory performance from Foy as the troubled, spiky heroine.
