1917

1917
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

Bad Boys for Life

Bad Boys For Life
  • 2020
  • US
  • 2h 3min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah
  • Cast: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Paola Núñez, Kate del Castillo, Nicky Jam, Joe Pantoliano, Thomas Brag

Mike (Smith) and Marcus (Lawrence) are back, tracking down a mysterious assassin with the help of younger colleagues. The best film in the franchise so far, it’s full of the expected action but also develops the relationship between the leads. Great fun, and the most purely entertaining movie Smith has made in a while.

Batman Begins

Batman Begins
  • 2005
  • US
  • 2h 19min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, Cillian Murphy, Morgan Freeman

Deeply flawed but satisfyingly dark and realistic adaptation of both Bob Kane's original strips and Frank Miller's Batman: Year One. David Blade Goyer's script is pretty awful but this is also a fairly substandard piece of work from Nolan as well. 'Batman Begins' does, however, need to be applauded for partly revitalising an ailing franchise.

  • Directed by: Andrew Traucki
  • Cast: Jessica McNamee, Luke Mitchell, Amali Golden

A group of friends must fight for their lives against a pack of crocodiles when they get trapped in a cave system in Northern Australia.

Bloodshot

  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Wilson
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, Guy Pearce

Ray Garrison (Diesel) is slain by baddie Martin Axe (Kebbell) but then brought back to life with nanotechnology by Dr Harting (Pearce). Debut director Wilson is well aware how daft it all is and delivers a flashy, fast-paced action movie that never takes itself too seriously. Big, dumb fun.

Blue Story
  • 2019
  • 1h 31min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andrew Onwubolu
  • Written by: Andrew Onwubolu
  • Cast: Stephen Odubola, Micheal Ward, Khali Best

Timmy (Odubola) befriends Marco (Ward), but they find themselves on separate sides of an increasingly ugly gang rivalry. Rapper-turned-writer/director Onwubolu, telling a story drawn from his own upbringing, draws compelling turns from Ward and Odubola and it packs a huge punch.

The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight
  • 2008
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman

Nolan's revamp of the superhero franchise reaches its apotheosis with this sequel to Batman Begins, a supremely well-imagined, perfectly executed film that combines blockbuster spectacle with indie cinema cool and smarts. Psychotic, chaos-loving clown The Joker (Ledger) is introduced as the dark knight's ultimate nemesis and a thrilling battle slowly terrorises the populace of Gotham.

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises
  • 2012
  • US
  • 2h 44min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway

Eight years after The Dark Knight, Batman (Bale) is in exile, wanted for the death of an attorney. But when jewel thief Selina Kyle (Hathaway) draws him back to Gotham City he is held to ransom by masked terrorist Bane (Hardy). Emotional, epic and set to be the blockbuster of the year.

Dark Waters

Dark Waters
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 6min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Todd Haynes
  • Cast: Anne Hathaway, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins

Robert (Ruffalo) is a corporate defence attorney who switches sides when a friend’s cattle are ravaged by diseases caused by chemical run-off from a DuPont plant. The spiralling narrative sucks you in, but it’s rather lacking in conviction, idiosyncrasy and suspense (Hathaway is wasted as Robert’s crotchety wife.) Still, interesting and pertinent.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Gracey
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

Interstellar

Interstellar
  • 2014
  • US / UK
  • 2h 49min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway

Cooper (McConaughey) is a pilot-turned-farmer who's recruited for an intergalactic mission to find humanity a new home. Despite awe and nail-biting tension, there's too much clunky exposition and cinematic clichés, and although Nolan's intentions to make a singular and cerebral film are admirable, it all gets a bit silly.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 54min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Kasdan
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover

In the sequel to the 2017 reboot, old-timers Eddie (DeVito) and Milo (Glover) join the teens in an another video game adventure. Johnson and Awkwafina steal their scenes, although Gillan has to do too much exposition before she can get going, and while it’s a bit too similar to its predecessor it’s amiable festive fun.

Just Mercy

Just Mercy
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Destin Daniel Cretton
  • Cast: Jamie Foxx, Michael B Jordan, Brie Larson

Walter (Foxx) is convicted of the murder of a teenage white girl on the testimony of one felon (Blake-Nelson), despite a lack of incriminating evidence. Lawyer Bryan (Jordan) acts on his behalf. Old-fashioned, crusading legal drama which builds into an emotional and thought-provoking confrontation of the abiding racism in American society.

My Spy

My Spy
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Segal
  • Cast: Dave Bautista, Kristen Schaal, Ken Jeong

JJ (Bautista) is a CIA agent who when carrying out surveillance is befriended by nine-year-old Sophie (Coleman). Amiably lightweight but all-too-disposable family comedy which seems to have been assembled with warmed-up elements of other films; it doesn't do tough very well, but isn't notably warm & fuzzy either.

  • 2019
  • Canada
  • 1h 6min
  • U
  • Directed by: Charles E. Bastien
  • Cast: Anya Cooke, Cathal J. Dodd, Isaac Emberson-Heeks

The pups have to compete in a race against dirty tricks driver Cheetah. Young fans of the franchise may be disappointed on an entire movie centred on only one character, Marshall, and there’s nothing special here to justify the cost of cinema tickets when it can be watched at home in just a few months.

Queen & Slim
  • 2019
  • US / Canada
  • 2h 12min
  • Directed by: Melina Matsoukas
  • Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, Chloë Sevigny

Queen (Turner-Smith) and Slim (Kaluuya) are a mismatched duo whose Tinder date goes horribly wrong and puts them on the run in the American South. An oddball road movie with style, subtlety and low-key charm, burning with genuine about racism, written and directed by black women.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog
  • 2020
  • US / Japan
  • Directed by: Jeff Fowler
  • Cast: James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter

Sonic (Schwartz) finds himself alone on Earth, on the run from the authorities, with villain Dr Robotnik (Carrey) also in pursuit. A derivative script and a rather tired performance from Carrey aside, it’s got disarming charm and cheek and Sonic is a cutely cartoonish hero.

A Star is Born
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bradley Cooper
  • Cast: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott

Jackson (Cooper) is a famous musician, his best years behind him, who discovers young singer Ally (Gaga) in a bar one night. What could have been yet another remake is a revelation: Gaga sings up a storm and is nuanced and convincing, but Cooper is extraordinary as co-writer, producer, director and star. Smart, funny and heartbreaking.

Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

The Empire Strikes Back
  • 1980
  • US
  • 2h 4min
  • U
  • Directed by: Irvin Kershner
  • Written by: George Lucas, Leigh Brackett, Lawrence Kasdan
  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, David Prowse, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, Frank Oz

Arguably the best Star Wars film, the middle part of the original trilogy is packed with drama, tension, humour and a belter of a cliffhanger. Much of its impact has been lost to familiarity (that twist) but it's a masterpiece, impeccably directed by George Lucas' old UCLA tutor Kershner.
