Black Panther

Black Panther
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ryan Coogler
  • Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis

T’Challa (Boseman) ascends to the throne of Wakanda after his father is killed, and he and former lover Nakia (Nyong’o) must avenge the theft of an artefact made of Wakanda’s precious vibranium. Ground-breaking superhero story with awesome action; Boseman is agile and impressive, but the female contingent is superb and sombre themes sit comfortably alongside comedy.

Miguel (Rivera) is a 12-year-old Mexican boy who wants to be a musician, but his family disapproves. Then he steals a guitar from a mausoleum and finds himself in the Land of the Dead. An eye-popping mosaic of a kids’ movie which pays proper respect to Mexican folklore, its sincerity and creativity are ultimately winning.

Gormless caveman Dug (Redmayne) and his clan are menaced by Bronze Age invader Lord Nooth (Hiddleston), until twinkle-toed defector Goona (Williams) joins them to help them unite. Deliciously daft prehistoric fun from Park and his team on top form, with winning human touches, plenty of sight gags and painful puns.

Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: James Foley
  • Written by: E.L James
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson

Christian Grey (Dornan) and new bride Ana (Johnson) wrestle with married life, but are pursued by a knife-wielding stalker whose identity is known to the audience all along. It’s easy to see where he’s coming from, as you’ll learn to hate them too. Not a climax, just an ending.

Journey's End

Journey's End
  • 2017
  • 1h 47min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Saul Dibb
  • Cast: Paul Bettany, Sam Claflin, Asa Butterfield

In a French dugout in 1918, Captain Stanhope (Claflin) is running on whisky and nerves, and approaching a breakdown. Dibb retains the claustrophobia of the original play and a uniformly excellent cast means that the emotional moments are fully earned. Mightily impressive.

Reynolds Woodcock (Day Lewis) is a haute couture dressmaker in 50s London; when he meets Alma (Krieps), and she becomes his muse and then his lover, the carefully crafted life he has made with his sister (Manville) is turned upside down. A multi-layered, expertly observed study of desire and control, with masterful work from Anderson and his cast.

  • Cast: Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Lauren Lee Smith, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer

In 1962 Baltimore, Eliza (Hawkins) is a mute who works as a cleaner in a secret government facility alongside the chatty Zelda (Spencer); there she makes a connection with a mysterious monster (Jones). A wondrous tale of underwater love, with an apt and refreshing approach to female sexuality; from screenplay through casting, score and production, it all gels superbly.
