Apollo 13

On 13 April 1970, an oxygen tank exploded on the service module of the Apollo 13 spacecraft, leaving three astronauts stranded some 200,000 miles from home. Howard's screen retelling is a big, epic adventure with a proudly patriotic stance. The space photography is just fantastic and the acting as good as it gets. Great entertainment, if a little rich in the apple pie department.

  • 2h 18min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Corey Stoll, Claire Foy

Biopic of the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong (Gosling), with subtle and unshowy performances from Gosling and from Foy as his no-BS wife Jan. An intimate and moving character drama with raw and visceral space-peril thrills and a hero whose fame rests on modesty, curiosity and problem-solving purposefulness.

Halloween

Halloween
  • 1978
  • US
  • 1h 31min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John Carpenter
  • Written by: John Carpenter, Debra Hill
  • Cast: Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, PJ Soles, Nancy Loomis

The first and best of the series – and one of the best of all slasher movies. Escaped psycho Michael Myers returns to the town where he killed his sister several years before and picks up where he left off with remarkable ease. Pleasence is the obsessive psychiatrist on his trail, convinced he is to blame for the escape. A scary reminder of what a blood-soaked genre could achieve if only it recovered from sequelitis.

Johnny English Strikes Again

Johnny English Strikes Again
  • 2018
  • UK/France
  • 1h 28min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Kerr
  • Cast: Rowan Atkinson, Olga Kurylenko, Ben Miller, Emma Thompson

Johnny English (Atkinson) is called back into action after a cyberattack reveals the identities of British secret agents. The cast are game, but the dialogue lacks snap and the direction and editing are atrocious. The lack of laughs are all the more infuriating because it’s easy to see how it could have been funnier.

Mandy

Mandy

  • Directed by: Panos Cosmatos
  • Cast: Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache

Mild-mannered lumberjack Red (Cage) is living in a woodland idyll with Mandy (Riseborough) when Mansonesque Jeremiah (Roache) shows up with his gang. Psychedelia-infused horror which harnesses the full transportive power of cinema; all the performances are great, but Cage has his best role in years.

Smallfoot

Smallfoot
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 36min
  • U
  • Directed by: Karey Kirkpatrick, Jason Reisig
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, James Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Danny DeVito, Gina Rodriguez, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry, Jimmy Tatro

Migo (Tatum) is a bigfoot who lives in an isolated community of his fellow creatures, who have heard rumours of the mythical ‘smallfoots’—humans. The songs are fun and drive the story forward, and child-pleasing slapstick is ably mixed with a thoughtful consideration of how a community can deal with challenges to its basic assumptions.

A Star is Born

A Star is Born
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bradley Cooper
  • Cast: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott

Jackson (Cooper) is a famous musician, his best years behind him, who discovers young singer Ally (Gaga) in a bar one night. What could have been yet another remake is a revelation: Gaga sings up a storm and is nuanced and convincing, but Cooper is extraordinary as co-writer, producer, director and star. Smart, funny and heartbreaking.
