Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK/USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Johnny Depp

Newt (Redmayne) is back in London in 1927, while defeated Dark Wizard Grindelwald (Depp) has escaped and is heading to Paris. Law steps up as young Albus Dumbeldore and the film really flies in the final act, deepening characters and relationships and expanding the universe. A beast of a movie.

First Man

First Man
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 18min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Corey Stoll, Claire Foy

Biopic of the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong (Gosling), with subtle and unshowy performances from Gosling and from Foy as his no-BS wife Jan. An intimate and moving character drama with raw and visceral space-peril thrills and a hero whose fame rests on modesty, curiosity and problem-solving purposefulness.

The Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

A Star is Born

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.

Suspiria

Suspiria
  • 1976
  • Italy
  • 1h 34min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Dario Argento
  • Written by: Dario Argento, Daria Nicolodi
  • Cast: Jessica Harper, Stefania Casini, Flavio Bucci, Miguel Bosé, Alida Valli, Joan Bennett

Perhaps Argento's most successful and best known film – set in a witches' coven hidden within a ballet school – finds the Italian slashmeister at the height of his power. The heart-stopping set pieces remain as shocking today as they did decades ago, and throughout there's good use of colour, framing and design.

Widows

Widows
  • 2018
  • UK / US
  • 2h 9min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Steve McQueen
  • Cast: Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson

Veronica (Davis) is the wife of career criminal Harry (Neeson), who talks the wives of her husband’s associates into pulling off a heist after their husbands are unable to (see the movie title.) Densely populated and richly realised crime drama, with three fine leads in Davis, Debicki and Rodriguez, and McQueen’s contemplative style is balanced with genre thrills and feminist fury.

Wildlife

Wildlife
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Paul Dano
  • Cast: Ed Oxenbould, Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhaal

In Montana in 1960, Joe (Oxenbould) watches his parents’ marriage dissolve after they run into money troubles. Dano’s debut as a director is an impressive adaptation (co-written with Zoe Kazan) of Richard Ford’s novel, with a fiery and mesmerising performance from Mulligan as a woman on the edge. Haunting and elegantly done.

The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard Of Oz
  • 1939
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • U
  • Directed by: Victor Fleming
  • Cast: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr, Jack Haley

Miserable Dorothy runs away from home but is soon whisked up into a magical land where her adventures teach her that happiness is to be found in her own back yard. Classic stuff indeed, just chockful of great songs, characterisation and memorably garish design. Perhaps marginally less enjoyable for the curmudgeonly element rooting for the Wicked Witch of the West, though.
