Dumbo

Dumbo
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Alan Arkin

In this remake of the 1941 film, one-armed circus worker Holt (Farrell) is struggling to reconnect with his bereft children while a certain large-eared pachyderm is figuring out the ropes. It looks lovely, but there’s a lot of extra plot shovelled in and it’s arguably overloaded, compared to the sincerity and simplicity of the original.

Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Bo Burnham
  • Cast: Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson

Kayla (Fisher) is an awkward teenager in her last week of grade school, who posts would-be inspirational vlogs while lacking confidence in daily life. Fisher is superb as the anxious, heroic Kayla and it’s a humane and sometimes hilarious debut from comedian-turned-filmmaker Burnham.

Fisherman's Friends

Fisherman’s Friends
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 52min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Chris Foggin
  • Cast: Tuppence Middleton, James Purefoy, Daniel Mays, David Hayman

Danny (Mays) is a music industry talent handler who arrives in Cornwall on a stag night, and discovers the titular (real-life) folk singers and signs them. Mays is a watchable lead and generates rom-com chemistry with Middleton, the daughter of the group’s grouchy Jim (Purefoy). An undemanding yarn with nevertheless the power to do some cockle-warming.

  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Richard Donner

Greta

Greta
  • 2018
  • Ireland/US
  • 1h 38min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Neil Jordan
  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe

Frances (Moretz) is a young waitress trying to make her way in New York, whose life changes when she returns a found handbag to its owner, Greta (Huppert). A stalker thriller with full commitment from the leads, but littered with plot holes; a nightmarish fantasy which falls apart if you think about it.

The Keeper

The Keeper
  • 2018
  • Germany/UK
  • 2h
  • Directed by: Marcus H Rosenmüller
  • Cast: David Kross, Freya Mavor, John Henshaw

Bert Trautmann (Kross) is a WW2 German paratrooper who, on being released from a Lancashire POW camp, chooses to stay in England and eventually becomes goalie for Manchester City. Rosenmüller throws in everything but the kitchen sink, but it becomes ludicrously melodramatic and focuses too much on the romance.

Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Marshall
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep

Michael Banks (Whishaw) is facing ruin after the death of his wife, and his sister Jane (Mortimer) can’t help—but then Mary Poppins (Blunt) sails down from the sky. Blunt is suitably brusque and radiant and a fine songstress, and while it’s a sliver of a story it’s impressively imaginative and unashamedly, triumphantly nostalgic.

Mid90s

Mid90s
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 25min
  • Directed by: Jonah Hill
  • Cast: Sunny Suljic, Lucas Hedges, Na-kel Smith, Olan Prenatt, Gio Galicia, Ryder McLaughlin, Alexa Demie, Katherine Waterston

Stevie (Suljic) is a 13-year-old whose brother beats him up, and in an escape from his domestic woes he starts hanging out with an older crew of skaters. Hill’s debut feature shows plenty of creative daring and is pleasingly non-judgmental, a witty and compassionate portrait of adolescence.

Monty Python's Life of Brian

Monty Python's Life of Brian
  • 1979
  • UK
  • 1h 33min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Terry Jones
  • Written by: Monty Python
  • Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin

The Gospel According to Monty Python offended a whole host of religious dominations upon its initial release, which rather obscured the fact that behind the controversy lay their most sustained humour to date. A host of very funny setpieces and smart cameos from all the team climaxes in a rather fetching musical crucifixion.

Ralph Breaks the Internet

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rich Moore, Phil Johnston
  • Cast: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Taraji P. Henson

Ralph (Reilly) and Vanellope (Silverman) have to go to the internet when her game, Sugar Rush, needs a new part. What could have been yet another film about how amazeballs the internet is, becomes a savvy and sweet tale of friendship, subtly weaving the in-jokes with the emotional stakes.

Red Joan

Red Joan
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Trevor Nunn
  • Cast: Judy Dench, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes

Joan (Cookson when young, Dench later on) arrives at Cambridge in 1938 and is beguiled by radical politics into becoming a Soviet spy. Nunn’s first movie in over 20 years is a plodding, pedestrian affair, and while Dench captures her befuddlement and steely resolve, it fails to find the drama in a story inspired by intriguing real life events.

The Sisters Brothers
  • 2018
  • US /France
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Jacques Audiard
  • Cast: John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed, Rutger Hauer

In 1850s Oregon, brothers Charlie and Eli Sisters (Phoenix and Reilly) are guns for hire who have conflicting ambitions in life. Although the body count is extensive, Audiard is more concerned with reflection and introspection, and the film resounds with both hopeful optimism and resigned melancholy.

The White Crow
  • 2018
  • UK/France
  • 2h 2min
  • Directed by: Ralph Fiennes
  • Cast: Oleg Ivenko, Ralph Fiennes, Louis Hofmann

The story of Rudolf Nureyev (Ivenko), delving into his work and sex life and how he defected from the Soviet Union in 1961. Ukrainian dancer Ivenko gives an intensely physical performance and Fiennes’ light touch as a director makes it something exciting, genuine and naturally sexy.

Wild Rose

Wild Rose
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: Tom Harper
  • Cast: Jessie Buckley, Julie Walters, Sophie Okonedo

Rose-Lynn (Buckley) is a Glaswegian woman who, on leaving prison, resumes her quest for fame as a country music singer. A warm-hearted and inspiring tale, not without clichés in the Cinderella tradition, and Buckley is a genuine star in the ascendant.
