Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Peyton Reed
  • Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, Tip "T.I." Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Michael Douglas, Randall Park, Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne

Sequel to Marvel's 2015 superhero flick Ant-Man, which sees the eponymous shrinking hero (Rudd) joining forces with the Wasp (Lilly) to rescue her long-lost mother (Pfeiffer) from a quantum realm. Silly yet also subtle, the film brims with chemistry from its strong cast.

BlacKkKlansman

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.

Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc Forster
  • Cast: Hayley Atwell, Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings

Christopher Robin (McGregor) is a workaholic who neglects his family, until he re-encounters his childhood toys. Whimsical and unoriginal back-to-childhood tale, not saved by McGregor’s dexterity or Cummings’s lovely voice work as Pooh.

The Equalizer 2

The Equalizer 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Antoine Fuqua
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Pedro Pascal, Bill Pullman

Robert McCall (Washington) works as a Lyft driver in Boston but when his black-ops handler (Leo) is murdered, he sets out to find her killer. Uninspired sequel which hypocritically preaches noble virtue while dispensing cheap thrills and physical mutilation.

The Eyes of Orson Welles

The Eyes of Orson Welles
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 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.

Ferdinand

Ferdinand
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 46min
  • U
  • Directed by: Carlos Saldanha
  • Written by: Munro Leaf
  • Cast: Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Bobby Cannavale

Ferdinand (Cena) is a Spanish bull who prefers sniffing flowers to staring down bullfighters; shipped off to a farm, he has to escape both the slaughterhouse and the ring. Amiable animation which, although funny, is too overcrowded and unfocused to be really satisfying.

Hotel Transylvania 3

Hotel Transylvania 3
  • 2018
  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: Genndy Tartakovsky
  • Cast: Adam Sandler, Kathryn Hahn, Andy Samberg

Third instalment of the Hotel Transylvania franchise, which sees daughter Mavis (Gomez) take on the role of overbearing parent when her father Dracula (Sandler) falls for the ship's captain Ericka (Hahn) whilst on a monsters-only cruise. A funny and good-humoured flick, with plenty of goofy gags and musical numbers that'll please the whole family.

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.

  • Japan

  • Directed by: Hayao Miyazaki

The Land Before Time

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.

The Meg

The Meg
  • 2018
  • China/US
  • 1h 53min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jon Turteltaub
  • Cast: Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Cliff Curtis

Jonas (Statham) is a diver who’s brought to an underwater research facility to rescue people from a sinister threat—the titular giant shark. It’s a $150m B-movie; the creature itself is no masterpiece, and the plot is ridiculous, but Statham carries off the outlandish premise with a confident performance in a role he was born to play.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
  • 2017
  • Canada/US/South Korea
  • 1h 31min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Cal Brunker
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph

In this inexplicable sequel to the underwhelming 2014 original, Surly Squirrel (Arnett) teams up with idealistic Andie (Heigl) and Precious (Rudolph) to save their park from the Mayor (Moynihan). The characters are unappealing and the script relies on uninspired action and flat non-jokes. At least there’s no ‘Gangnam Style’ this time.

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.

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Aaron Horvath, Peter Rida Michail
  • Cast: Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Will Arnett

Disgruntled that so many big players in the DC Universe have their own movie but they themselves don’t, the Teen Titans pressure hotshot director Jade Wilson (Bell) to make one. Inventive and very funny animated superhero comedy which is a treat for kids and adults alike.

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.
