The Brink

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 31min
  • Directed by: Alison Klayman

Immersive, fly on the wall documentary following around the political strategist Steve Bannon, staying in five-star hotels and travelling on private jets as he attends strategy meetings. Klayman seems content to observe rather than challenge and we don’t find out whether he really matters as much as he seems to think he does.

The Dead Don't Die

The Dead Don't Die
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • Directed by: Jim Jarmusch
  • Cast: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Carol Kane, Selena Gomez, Tom Waits

Jarmusch’s homage to the zombie movie makes the humans criminally dumb and apathetic and the zombies thirsty for coffee, wi-fi and candy. Swinton works her usual magic as a Scottish samurai mortician, Sevigny excels as a dangerously empathetic cop and if it’s insufficiently scathing about the penal system, the silly humour carries it along.

Dani (Pugh) is a fragile American girl dating fellow student Christian (Reynor) who, after tragically losing family members, travels to Sweden with Christian and his friends to visit a commune. Slow-burn horror which simmers rather than explodes, but Pugh and Reynor give full-blooded turns and it’s transfixing.

Muppets From Space

Muppets From Space
  • 1999
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tim Hill

For their sixth big screen adventure, the focus of our Muppet attentions is Gonzo, that blue, hooked nosed … thing. No one is really sure what Gonzo is, so when he gets a message which he believes is from space, the race is on to make contact with his extraterrestrial brethren. Muppets From Space captures the spirit of the first movie and the original TV series that the subsequent films never did.

Roman Holiday
  • 1953
  • US
  • 1h 58min

After the events of Endgame, Peter Parker (Holland) is dealing with the loss of his mentor when he and his schoolmates find themselves fighting the Elementals. An enjoyable mix of storming special effects and road trip silliness which manages to work in the believable development in the relationship between Peter and MJ (Zendaya). It returns the fun to the Marvel canon.

Wonder Park

Wonder Park
  • 2019
  • Spain / US
  • PG
  • Cast: Brianna Denski, Jennifer Garner, Ken Hudson Campbell

June (Mali and Denski) is faced with being shipped off to math camp while her mother (Garner) seeks medical assistance; then she finds herself in a parallel universe where she has to save a theme park. An animated film with big ideas and some notable omissions, ultimately a slight but rewardingly bittersweet experience.

Yesterday

Yesterday
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 52min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon

Singer-songwriter Jack (Patel) is knocked unconscious when a bus hits his bike, and he wakes up in a world where the Beatles are unknown. There’s some fine comedy (including from Sheeran, playing himself) but it gets less surefooted; Patel can’t stop Jack from being rather morose and it’s neither a classic Curtis rom-com nor as infectiously euphoric as Boyle’s best work.
