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.

The Kid Who Would Be King

The Kid Who Would Be King
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 2h
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Cornish
  • Cast: Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Dean Chaumoo, Tom Taylor, Rhianna Dorris, Angus Imrie, Patrick Stewart, Rebecca Ferguson

Alex (Serkis), escaping from school bullies, finds a sword sticking out of a cement post which he and mate Bedders (Chaumoo) decide is Excalibur. Entertaining, but with too many unanswered questions, and Ferguson as Morgana is wasted for most of the movie. Shame, because the kids are terrific.

Monty Python's Life of Brian

Monty Python's Life of Brian
  • 1979
  • UK
  • 1h 33min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Terry Jones
  • Written by: Monty Python
  • Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin

The Gospel According to Monty Python offended a whole host of religious dominations upon its initial release, which rather obscured the fact that behind the controversy lay their most sustained humour to date. A host of very funny setpieces and smart cameos from all the team climaxes in a rather fetching musical crucifixion.

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.

Vox Lux

Vox Lux
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Brady Corbet
  • Cast: Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Raffey Cassidy, Stacy Martin

Celeste (Portman) is a pop sensation on a comeback tour, who in her early teens survived a school shooting. A tantalising and layered character portrait with game performances from a fine cast; Portman is in her element and Law is perfect as her smoke-blowing manager.

Wild Rose

Wild Rose
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: Tom Harper
  • Cast: Jessie Buckley, Julie Walters, Sophie Okonedo

Rose-Lynn (Buckley) is a Glaswegian woman who, on leaving prison, resumes her quest for fame as a country music singer. A warm-hearted and inspiring tale, not without clichés in the Cinderella tradition, and Buckley is a genuine star in the ascendant.
