The Aftermath

The Aftermath
  • 2019
  • UK / US / Germany
  • 1h 48min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Kent
  • Cast: Alexander Skarsgård, Keira Knightley, Jason Clarke

In post-WWII Hamburg, Rachael (Knightley) and her officer husband Lewis (Clarke) are living in a house with the German owner Stefan (Skarsgård) confined to the attic, and soon Rachael is drawn to Stefan. Rhidian Brook’s original novel may work, but on screen, the stiff upper lips and war-is-hell clichés are ridiculously shop-worn and clumsy.

Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame
  • 2019
  • US
  • 3h 1min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana

Five years after Thanos’s victory, the Avengers are in despair until Ant-Man (Rudd) kicks the story back into action. The final film in the saga verges on fanservice, but there’s intelligent character development, everyone (except Johansson) is given enough to do, and some arcs have a truly poignant sense of closure. Playful, inventive and highly entertaining.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dean DeBlois
  • Cast: Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington, Justin Rupple, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, F. Murray Abraham, Gerard Butler

Hiccup (voiced by Baruchel) is now a chief with growing responsibilities, while Toothless the dragon is in love; but then dragon hunter Grimmel (Abraham) is determined to spoil people’s fun. The franchise is running out of steam; there’s too much going on and the central bond is obscured.

The Hustle
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Chris Addison
  • Cast: Anne Hathaway, Rebel Wilson, Alex Sharp, Dean Norris

Josephine (Hathaway) is a British con artist who hunts for prey in the French Riviera, where she meets Australian grifter Penny (Wilson). This remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is smug, poorly drawn and full of jokes about Wilson’s character’s supposed unattractiveness. Wilson and Hathaway do their best, but it’s not nearly funny enough.

  • Cast: Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, Lance Reddick, Saïd Taghmaoui, Jerome Flynn, Jason Mantzoukas, Tobias Segal, Boban Marjanović, Anjelica Huston, Ian McShane

John Wick (Reeves) is a global exile with a $14m bounty on his head, and is forced to ask snarly assassin Sofia (Berry) for the help she owes him. The third instalment of this action franchise is the best, with spectacular fight sequences, numerous genius details and excellent performances. Violent, hilarious, surprising and cool.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

  • US / Australia / Denmark
  • 1h 46min
  • U
  • Directed by: Rob Schrab
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Tiffany Haddish, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Stephanie Beatriz

Despite living in the Mad Max-style nightmare of Apocalypseburg, Emmet (Pratt) is still his cheery self—until his friends are kidnapped by the alien queen (Haddish). There are lots of good jokes and plenty of fun, but it’s not quite up to the magical original.

On the Basis of Sex
  • 2018

  • Directed by: Mimi Leder
  • Cast: Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux

Biopic of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Jones), focusing on her journey from law student in the 50s to crusading lawyer in the 70s. Jones brings emotional conviction and power to the role, and her chemistry with Hammer as her lawyer husband Marty is sweet. Inspirational stuff.

Paw Patrol: Mighty Pups
  • 2019
  • USA
  • 44min
  • U
  • Directed by: Charles E. Bastien
  • Cast: Devan Cohen, Drew Davis, Samuel Faraci

A meteor lands in Adventure Bay and gives the pups superpowers, but also gives superpowers to nasty Harold of neighbouring Foggy Bottom. Basically a 70-minute extended episode of the series, enjoyably innocuous and easy to follow, although parents won’t be pleased when the toy requests come in after the end credits roll.

Pet Sematary

Pet Sematary
  • 2019

  • Directed by: Kevin Kölsch, Dennis Widmyer
  • Cast: Jason Clarke, John Lithgow, Amy Seimetz

Louis (Clarke) takes his wife Rachel (Seimetz) and two children from Boston and settles in Maine, in a property that includes a spooky pet cemetery. The second adaptation of Stephen King’s novel has panache and escalates to a grim and grisly finale. Laurence is particularly good as the daughter, Ellie.

  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Letterman
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Suki Waterhouse, Omar Chaparro, Chris Geere, Ken Watanabe, Bill Nighy

Tim (Smith) is a former Pokémon trainer who teams up with Pikachu (voiced by Reynolds) to solve a mysterious car accident which leaves his detective father presumed dead. Reynolds’ voice skills are incredible, you don’t need to know about the franchise to get what’s going on and it’s a quirky and lovingly crafted surreal comedy thriller.

Rocketman

Rocketman
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard

This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.
