The Aeronauts

The Aeronauts
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Tom Harper
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones,

In 1862, meteorology pioneer James Glaisher (Redmayne) takes flight in a hot air balloon piloted by Amelia Wren (Jones). Old-school adventure with spectacular effects and a neatly layered screenplay; any predictability is offset by the film’s charm and the fond chemistry between Redmayne and Jones.

The Good Liar

The Good Liar
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren, Nell Williams

Roy (McKellen) is a con man who targets wealthy widows, and when he targets Betty (Mirren) her son Steven (Tovey) becomes suspicious. It’s a blend of several genres which don’t quite fuse and is ultimately diverting but far from essential.

Howl's Moving Castle

Howl's Moving Castle
  • 2005
  • Japan
  • 1h 59min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Hayao Miyazaki
  • Cast: Chieko Baishō, Takuya Kimura, Akihiro Miwa

Miyazaki, the director of 'Spirited Away' returns with a version of Diana Wynne Jones' children's book 'Howl's Moving Castle'. The result is a strange hybrid that starts out as a cheery kids adventure then changes direction halfway through to envisage the hell of a dystopian futureworld ruled by war. Despite Miyazaki's undoubted gifts for story, character and cute animation, the diverse cultural agendas jar badly. East meets West so awkwardly here.

Last Christmas

Last Christmas
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh

Kate (Clarke) is a Yugoslavian immigrant whose life is going downhill until she meets the mysterious bike-riding Tom (Golding), who seems too good to be true. Thompson and Kimmings’ script is a saccharine romantic fantasy and George Michael’s music isn’t always incorporated effectively, but its heart is in the right place.

Le Mans '66

Le Mans '66
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 32min
  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, Ray McKinnon

Car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) teams up with mechanic/driver Ken Miles (Bale) in the story of how Ford tried to beat Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966. The race scenes are directed with thrilling energy, and if scenes between Miles and his wife Mollie (Balfe) are uneven, it’s an effective story about dreamers who risked everything.

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.

Playmobil: The Movie

Playmobil: The Movie
  • 2019
  • France / Germany
  • Directed by: Lino DiSalvo
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Daniel Radcliffe, Kenan Thompson

Marla (Taylor-Joy) and Charlie (Bateman) are siblings who come to terms with grief by entering a fantasy world where they become Playmobil figures. Taylor-Joy is delightful with both live-action and voice acting, but it misses the warmth and storytelling flair of the best toy adaptations and plays it overly safe.
