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.

Edie

Edie
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 37min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Simon Hunter
  • Cast: Sheila Hancock, Kevin Guthrie, Paul Brannigan

Edie (Hancock) was trapped in a loveless marriage for years, so when her husband dies, the 85-year-old takes advantage of her new freedom to go mountain-climbing in the Scottish Highlands. There’s charming chemistry between Hancock and co-star Guthrie, and the film is not unaware of how unprepared Edie is; unashamedly feel-good if somewhat formulaic.

  • 2018
  • UK
  • 2h 4min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Newell
  • Cast: Lily James, Michiel Huisman, Jessica Brown Findlay

Juliet (James) is a successful writer in post-WWII London who discovers the eponymous book club, and learns about their lives under the German occupation of the island. Don’t let the twee title put you off, as it’s a beguiling and affecting celebration of friendship, courage and the joys of reading, full of warmth and good humour.

Life of the Party

Life of the Party
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ben Falcone
  • Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Gillian Jacobs, Adria Arjona, Maya Rudolph

When Deanna (McCarthy) is abruptly divorced by her husband, she decides to enrol in her daughter’s university to complete the degree she gave up. Frothy comedy which provides a welcome reunion of McCarthy and Rudolph, and fine work from Gardner and Jacobs; lightweight fun.

Monster Island

Monster Island
  • 2017
  • Mexico
  • 1h 20min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Leopoldo Aguilar
  • Cast: Fiona Hardingham, Roger Jackson, Jenifer Beth Kaplan

Manic, simplistic and never especially funny, Monster Island is a plucky attempt that is unlikely to cause any sleepless nights for Despicable Me 3 or Captain Underpants. However, the ghoulish tone might just make it a primer for younger viewers hoping to graduate to the worlds of Tim Burton and Henry Selick.

On Chesil Beach

On Chesil Beach
  • 2017
  • UK
  • Directed by: Dominic Cooke
  • Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Emily Watson

Adaptation by Ian McEwan of his own novella, in which newlyweds Eddie (Howle) and Florence (Ronan) have an unsatisfying wedding night in a Dorset hotel in the early 60s. Overwrought and underwhelming, it’s filmed with a heavy hand by theatre director Cooke, making it for self-important and unengaging viewing.

Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit
  • 2018
  • US / Australia
  • 1h 33min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Will Gluck
  • Cast: Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, Sam Neill, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki, Margot Robbie, James Corden

Mischievous bunny Peter (Corden) and his sisters Flopsy (Robbie), Mopsy (Debicki) and Cotton-Tail (Ridley) contend with Thomas (Gleeson), an uptight cottage garden owner. The interweaving of CGI animals with live action is flawless, Gleeson proves to have fine comedy chops and there’s a lot of slapstick, but anyone looking for Beatrix Potter will be sorely disappointed.

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.

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.
