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.

In the court of Queen Anne (Colman), power is wielded by Lady Sarah Marlborough (Weisz), but then Sarah’s young cousin Abigail (Stone) arrives. Brash, bawdy and beguiling, and a deceptively acute commentary on the nature of power, with career-best work from Weisz and Stone and a commanding performance from Colman as the ailing Queen.

England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. Queen Annes close friend, Lady Sarah, enjoys power but Cousin Abigail arrives and tries to replace her as the Queens favourite. The gloves are off for a right royal rumpus. A wildly entertaining, bracingly cynical comedy of royal manners - a farce with teeth! Features Olivia Colemans Oscar winning Queen. (UK 2018)

Is it really 25 years since this comedy first delighted the world? Deftly written by Richard Curtis and directed by the versatile Mike Newell, Four Weddings is as good as its word, breezily following a small circle of friends through every one of the events the title promises. The pitch-perfect profanity, bumbling romanticism and Hugh Grants floppy-fringed charm remain enduringly, endearingly funny. (UK 1994)

Laid up with a broken leg, Slim Jim takes to neighbour-spotting with binoculars and camera at the ready. Before long, he's getting hot under the collar about the dirty deeds done across the yard. Is it murder? Or just naked voyeurism? One of Hitch's darkest movies, with an intense, unrelenting claustrophobia derived from confining the lens to the apartment set.
Sat 26 Oct
None of Hitchcocks films has ever given a clearer view of his genius for suspense than Rear Window. When photographer Jeff Jeffries (James Stewart) is confined to a wheelchair with a broken leg, he watches his neighbours from his rear window. Jeff suspects a salesman may have murdered his nagging wife and decides to investigate and that leads to one of the most memorable and gripping endings in all of film history. (USA 1954)
