BlacKkKlansman
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • Directed by: Spike Lee
  • Cast: John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Alec Baldwin

In 1978, Ron Stallworth (Washington), the first black man to join the Colorado Springs police, goes undercover in the Ku Klux Klan, with the help of fellow officer Flip (Driver). A stranger-than-fiction true story fusing buddy cop traditions with powerful recollections of cruelty, and anger at Trump’s America. Fascinating, funny and riveting.

  • 1h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mark Cousins
  • Cast: Mark Cousins

Unconventional film essay that looks at the life and work of one of the greatest filmmakers through the prism of his drawings and paintings. Cousins comes across at times as self-satisfied, but he really knows his subject and the result is rich, rewarding and original.

The Land Before Time
  • 1989
  • US
  • 1h 26min
  • U
  • Directed by: Don Bluth
  • Cast: Gabriel Damon, Candace Hutson, Judith Barsi, Will Ryan, Helen Shaver, Burke Byrnes, Bill Erwin, Pat Hingle

Animated feature from Disney graduate Bluth follows the fortunes of orphaned Brontosaurus Littlefoot, who loses his mum to the claws of a nasty Tyrannosaurus Rex before teaming up with a gang of similarly parentless wee dinos to undertake the hazardous journey across country to the safety of the Great Valley. Classically drawn and chockful of edifying moral lessons, this is solid entertainment perfectly tailored to the demands of its target audience of very young children.

Sherlock Gnomes

Sherlock Gnomes
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Stevenson
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

Toy Story

Toy Story
  • 1995
  • US
  • 1h 21min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Lasseter
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Annie Potts, John Morris, Laurie Metcalf, Erik von Detten

It isn't just the state-of-the-art images that distinguish Disney's first computer-generated animation feature, it's got a cracking adventure story too. A tale of friendship and self-belief combined with an exciting rescue and against-the-clock tension, Toy Story is sprinkled with comic asides. Don't be fooled into thinking these toys are just for the kids.
