1917

1917
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

The Call of the Wild

The Call of the Wild
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Sanders
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens, Omar Sy, Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford, Colin Woodell

Buck is a dog who is kidnapped in California and then has adventures all over the north, including with loner John Thornton (Ford). Big-hearted adaptation of Jack London’s classic 1903 novella, with skilful CGI and fine action sequences and a tear-jerking turn from Ford as both actor and narrator.

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.

Downhill

Downhill
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • Directed by: Nat Faxon, Jim Rash
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Miranda Otto, Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Pete (Ferrell) and Billie (Louis-Dreyfus) are a couple whose marriage is tested when, on holiday in Austria, he flees from what he thinks is a deadly avalanche rather than protect his family. Inspired by Ruben Östlund’s Force Majeure, it’s more mainstream and accessible but also broader, less sharp and less confident.

Emma

Emma
  • 2020
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Autumn de Wilde
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Josh O'Connor, Gemma Whelan

Emma (Taylor-Joy) is a self-important matchmaker blinded by snobbery and youthful hubris. It’s in keeping with the vogue for complex, unapologetic heroines but the comedy is rather hit and miss and it looks great. Taylor-Joy’s alert performance makes Emma her own.

Greed

Greed
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
  • Cast: Steve Coogan, Isla Fisher, Asa Butterfield, David Mitchell

Richard (Coogan) is a super-rich fashion tycoon, being followed around by an official biographer (Mitchell). Winterbottom’s satire takes on too many targets and, while funny, is never clever enough to be truly satisfying, with characters appearing as plot devices rather than as people in their own right. The targets are righteous but it misses the mark.

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man
  • 2020
  • US / Australia
  • Directed by: Leigh Whannell
  • Cast: Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer

Cecilia (Moss) flees her abusive partner, optics experimenter Adrian (Jackson-Cohen), and then hears that he’s dead; but he still seems to be around. Whannell milks minimalist set-ups for maximum effect, and Moss projects raw dread and ‘final girl’-ish fortitude. A low-budget but high-resonance exercise in sweaty-palmed suspense.

Jumanji: The Next Level

Jumanji: The Next Level
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 54min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Kasdan
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover

In the sequel to the 2017 reboot, old-timers Eddie (DeVito) and Milo (Glover) join the teens in an another video game adventure. Johnson and Awkwafina steal their scenes, although Gillan has to do too much exposition before she can get going, and while it’s a bit too similar to its predecessor it’s amiable festive fun.

Like a Boss

Like a Boss
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 23min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Miguel Arteta
  • Cast: Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne, Salma Hayek

Mia (Haddish) and Mel (Byrne) are best friends running a beauty company, which is then bought out by makeup wizard Claire (Hayek). Despite a good cast and director, there’s only so much that can be done with the weak script. It desperately wants to be funny, but isn’t sure how.

Parasite

Parasite

  • South Korea
  • 2h 12min
  • Directed by: Bong Joon-ho
  • Cast: Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik, Park So-dam

Ki-taek (Song Kang-ho) and his family hatch a cunning plot to improve their lives by infiltrating a wealthy family. Bong Joon-Ho’s slickly directed and darkly hilarious satire catches you off guard with its mix of pithy humour and tender family interactions, and then unfolds into something blazingly brutal, smart and heartfelt.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Andy Fickman
  • Cast: John Cena, Keegan-Michael Key, John Leguizamo

Jake (Cena) is a Californian fire chief who, after his men rescue three unruly children, is forced act as their nanny. Corny but easily digestible stuff, with lively turns from Cena, Peele and the rest of the cast; no classic, but warm and fuzzy holiday entertainment.

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.
