Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 29min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt

Thanos (Brolin) aims to become all-powerful, in the first part of this two-part superhero mash-up. Death, destruction, torture and sacrifice are the order of the day, in a grand space opera that mixes tragedy with pathos, fleshed out with the usual Marvel humour. Truly remarkable.

The First Purge

The First Purge
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 37min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Gerard McMurray
  • Cast: Marisa Tomei, Melonie Diaz, Y'lan Noe

No-nonsense, incendiary B-movie prequel to the franchise, in which the government tries out the whole ‘purge’ idea for the first time. Noel and Scott Davis are fine leads, and it makes great use of horror tropes and characters to bust racist myths. Unsubtle, but charged and effective.

Hereditary
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 7min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ari Aster
  • Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro

Annie (Collette) is an artist who crafts a dollhouse depicting the traumas of her life, but then her family begins to feel they’re being haunted by her late mother. Unnervingly oppressive debut from Aster, exploring maternal guilt and family anxiety. Collette has one of her best roles in years.

The Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8
  • 2018

  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

The Secret of Marrowbone

The Secret of Marrowbone
  • 2018
  • Spain
  • 1h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sergio G Sánchez
  • Cast: George MacKay, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton

Jack (MacKay) cares for his siblings and ailing mother; when his mother dies, he and local librarian Allie (Taylor-Joy) try to protect the family by creating the illusion that she’s still alive. A wealth of detail in this haunted house story makes up for a lack of scares, and it’s a sober, well-constructed riff on genre tropes.

Skyscraper

Skyscraper
  • 2018
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rawson Marshall Thurber
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Pablo Schreiber, Neve Campbell

Will (Johnson) is an FBI veteran who lost a leg, married his nurse (Campbell) and is a safety assessor for the tallest building in the world—which is then attacked by terrorists. With inane dialogue, substandard Euro-villains and preposterous set-pieces, it takes on two classic predecessors (Die Hard and The Towering Inferno) and loses.

Uncle Drew

Uncle Drew
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Charles Stone III
  • Cast: Kyrie Irving, Milton "Lil Rel" Howery, Nick Kroll

Dax (Howery) is a Harlem streetball coach who has to seek out 70-year-old streetball legend Uncle Drew (Irving) to form a team for a tournament. NBA stars wear very convincing prosthetic makeup in this amiable comedy, which is over-reliant on trash talk but which has a likeable cast and enough crowd-pleasing style to get by.

Vertigo

Vertigo
  • 1958
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock
  • Written by: Alec Coppel, Samuel A Taylor
  • Cast: James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes

Detective Stewart, a man afraid of heights, falls in love with a woman who apparently commits suicide. When he meets her double, he becomes obsessed with the possibility that she is still alive. Extraordinary plotting in this undervalued Hitchcock study of romantic mania, with Stewart memorably cast against type as the distinctly on-the-edge cop. The Bernard Herrmann score is simultaneously lush and disturbing.

Whitney

Whitney
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 2h
  • 15
  • Directed by: Kevin Macdonald
  • Cast: Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown,

Clear-sighted, compassionate portrait of Whitney Houston, which derives its strength from the range of testimony it’s collected, from family members, surly former husband Brown, film co-stars and assorted siblings and loved ones. It reminds us of her thrilling, spine-tingling voice while bringing revelations that many of her troubles lay in childhood trauma.
