Babe

Babe
  • 1995
  • Australia
  • 1h 32min
  • U
  • Directed by: Chris Noonan
  • Cast: James Cromwell, Roscoe Lee Browne, Christine Cavanaugh, Miriam Margolyes, Hugo Weaving, Miriam Flynn, Danny Mann, Magda Szubanski, Russi Taylor

An orphaned pig falls under the eye of a kindly collie and begins to think he's destined for glory at the regional sheepdog trials. Obviously for kids, but there's enough skewed humour (hail the psycho mice!) for adults too.

Dolittle

Dolittle
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Gaghan
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Octavia Spencer, Tom Holland, Craig Robinson, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Marion Cotillard

Dr Dolittle (Downey) is grieving the death of his wife Lily when a young boy (Collett) and Lady Rose (Laniado) both come to ask him for help. The plot is a barely connected bunch of scenes, action sequences are hinted at but unrealised. The worst adaptation of Hugh Lofting’s stories to date: all this talent wasted in a big furry disappointment.

The Lion King

The Lion King
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Cast: Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, James Earl Jones

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

On the Waterfront

On the Waterfront
  • 1954
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Elia Kazan
  • Written by: Budd Schulberg
  • Cast: Marlon Brando, Rod Steiger, Lee J Cobb, Eva Marie Saint, Karl Malden

Taking on gangster supremo Lee J Cobb only leads to tragedy for Brando's ex-boxer Terry Malloy in this early masterpiece of the Method school. Despite over-obvious religious symbolism, Budd Schulberg's politically contentious script and Kazan's involved direction, this offers one of Brando's best screen performances and the original 'I coulda been a contender' monologue later so effectively interpreted by Scorsese/De Niro in 'Raging Bull'.

Sun 17 May

Royal Shakespeare Company Live: The Comedy Of Errors

Royal Shakespeare Company Live: The Comedy Of Errors

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.

Spies in Disguise

Spies in Disguise
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Nick Bruno, Troy Quane
  • Cast: Will Smith, Tom Holland, Rashida Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Reba McEntire, Rachel Brosnahan, Karen Gillan, DJ Khaled, Masi Oka, Carla Jimenez

Lance Sterling (Smith) is a super spy who has to team up with inventor Walter (Holland) to clear his name, but is turned into a pigeon. It’s all very derivative but good fun, with a cute message about embracing your weirdness, and Smith and Holland’s terrific double act should earn them their own live-action buddy comedy.

A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire
  • 1951
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Elia Kazan
  • Written by: Tennessee Williams, Oscar Saul
  • Cast: Vivien Leigh, Marlon Brando, Kim Hunter, Karl Malden

Brando takes the acting honours and, with this film, sets the style for method acting for years to come. Tennessee Williams' steamy sex romp seems a little tame by today's standards, but the realism of the drama remains intact and the performances are to be savoured.
