Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto

Blade Runner K (Gosling) is tasked with finding replicants who are passing themselves off as human, but then he makes an earth-shattering, game-changing discovery. Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel to Scott’s original is beautiful, powerful and relevant; Gosling is exceptional, and Ford steals the show as the ageing but still gruff and quick-witted Deckard. A triumph.

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Armando Iannucci
  • Cast: Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend

When Joseph Stalin abruptly dies in 1953, his subordinates immediately start jockeying for the position of his replacement. The political backstabbing makes for maximum black comedy and exuberant farce, and the deft interplay of a gifted cast makes the whole film a consistent joy.

  • Cast: Rooney Mara, Sonia Acevedo, Casey Affleck, Carlos Bermudez

C (Affleck) and M (Mara) are a couple; when C is killed in a car crash, he returns as a ghost to make contact with M. Lowery manages to reanimate the corny old trope of the ghost under a bedsheet, creating a story about grief and a captivating reflection on the enormity of mankind’s existence.

  • Directed by: Sally Potter
  • Cast: Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones

Janet (Scott Thomas) is throwing a party to celebrate her promotion to Shadow Health Minister, but as friends arrive, secrets emerge and it all starts to unravel. Potter’s most accessible and uproarious film yet runs to a succinct 71 minutes but expertly takes the pulse of the nation.

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink
  • 1986
  • US
  • 1h 37min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Hughes
  • Cast: Molly Ringwald, Harry Dean Stanton, Jon Cryer.

Better-than-average teen movie from the doyen of that genre. Ms Ringwald is pretty in pink for the high school prom, but not before she has undergone the prejudice of the kids from the rich side of town. Her poppa, you see, is so poor that she only has a car, a telephone and an answering machine to call her own. This, incidentally, was when it became clear that the Psychedelic Furs had Sold Out.

The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride
  • 1987
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Reiner
  • Written by: William Goldman
  • Cast: Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, André the Giant, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Carol Kane

Princess Buttercup is chosen by the nasty Prince Humperdinck to be his bride but her heart belongs to the farm boy Westley. The princess' kidnapping prompts the return of Westley, now a pirate, and launches a series of swashbuckling adventures, after which true love can prevail. William Goldman's heavily ironic fairy tale is given a spirited treatment by the director of Stand By Me and an enthusiastic troupe.

Queen of Katwe

Queen of Katwe
  • 2016
  • US
  • 2h 4min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Mira Nair
  • Cast: Madina Nalwanga, David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong'o

Biopic of Phiona Mutesi (Nalwanga), a girl from the slums of Katwe, Uganda, who turned out to have a genius for chess. Confidently heartwarming stuff, if a little predictable, with a wonderfully engrossing performance from Nalwanga and classy support from Oyelowo as Phiona's coach and Nyong'o as her mother.
