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.

Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Bo Burnham
  • Cast: Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson

Kayla (Fisher) is an awkward teenager in her last week of grade school, who posts would-be inspirational vlogs while lacking confidence in daily life. Fisher is superb as the anxious, heroic Kayla and it’s a humane and sometimes hilarious debut from comedian-turned-filmmaker Burnham.

Greta

Greta
  • 2018
  • Ireland/US
  • 1h 38min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Neil Jordan
  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe

Frances (Moretz) is a young waitress trying to make her way in New York, whose life changes when she returns a found handbag to its owner, Greta (Huppert). A stalker thriller with full commitment from the leads, but littered with plot holes; a nightmarish fantasy which falls apart if you think about it.

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.

Loro

  • 2018
  • Italy / France
  • 2h 25min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Paolo Sorrentino
  • Cast: Toni Servillo, Elena Sofia Ricci, Riccardo Scamarcio

Small-time pimp Sergio (Scamarcio) aims to enter the Eurotrashy world of Silvio Berlusconi (Servillo). Distilled from two films, this is a flashy, baroque wallow in sleaze, with Servillo capturing Berlusconi’s mannerisms yet managing to find the humanity in him. Sprawling and unexpectedly melancholy, it nevertheless only seems to scratch the surface of history.

Shazam!

Shazam!
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: David F. Sandberg
  • Cast: Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, Djimon Hounsou

Billy Batson (Angel) is a teenager raised by a foster family, who’s given magic powers by The Wizard (Hounsou): if he shouts ‘SHAZAM!’ he becomes the titular cape-wearing adult (Levi). A superhero movie bursting with humour and heart, with a mischievous performance from Levi, inspired jokes, emotion and surprising cameos.

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.
