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.

Bonnie and Clyde

Bonnie and Clyde
  • 1967
  • US
  • 1h 51min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Arthur Penn
  • Written by: David Newman, Robert Benton, Special Consultant:, Robert Towne
  • Cast: Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Michael J Pollard, Gene Hackman, Estelle Parsons

This stylish and gritty account of the relationship and activities of two self-publicised bank robbers was a late-1960s milestone in making extreme screen violence curiously fashionable. Great performances from Hackman and Dunaway, a genuine sense of the thrill involved in their nefarious activities, and telling period detail make this one of Penn's best.

Harvie and the Magic Museum

Harvie and the Magic Museum
  • 2017
  • Czech Republic
  • 1h 26min
  • Directed by: Martin Kotík, Inna Evlannikova
  • Cast: Martin Dejdar, Ota Jirák, Martin Klásek

Harvie, a schoolkid, falls beneath the earth with his dog and friend Monica and discovers an evil puppet master. Harvie himself is one of the most annoying protagonists in a kids’ film ever, but there’s enough humour and scariness in this Czech animation to keep younger kids entertained.

Red Joan

Red Joan
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Trevor Nunn
  • Cast: Judy Dench, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes

Joan (Cookson when young, Dench later on) arrives at Cambridge in 1938 and is beguiled by radical politics into becoming a Soviet spy. Nunn’s first movie in over 20 years is a plodding, pedestrian affair, and while Dench captures her befuddlement and steely resolve, it fails to find the drama in a story inspired by intriguing real life events.

Thelma & Louise

Thelma & Louise
  • 1991
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Written by: Callie Khouri
  • Cast: Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis, Harvey Keitel, Brad Pitt, Michael Madsen, Christopher McDonald

The buddy/road movie genres are turned on their heads as Sarandon and Davis grasp the steering wheel and head off leaving a trail of murder and mayhem in their wake. On one level, the film is the critical catalyst that had the feminists cheering and put the stars on the cover of Time magazine; just as importantly, it's an accessible piece of entertainment with excellent central performances.
