  • Directed by: Jill Culton
  • Cast: Chloe Bennet, Albert Tsai, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Paulson, Tsai Chin, Michelle Wong

A cute, blue-eyed Yeti is found hiding on the roof of a Shanghai apartment building, and teenager Yi (voiced by Bennett) and her friends Jin (Trainor) and Peng (Tsai) decide to help him get back to the Himalayas. Enjoyable, smartly paced and gorgeously animated; hardly very original, but full of comic relief and heart.

The Angry Birds Movie 2
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 36min
  • U
  • Directed by: Thurop Van Orman
  • Cast: Dove Cameron, Awkwafina, Peter Dinklage

When Eagle Island villain Zeta (Jones) starts lobbing ice bombs at Piggy Island, ruler Leonard (Hader) bonds with angry birds (Sudeikis, McBride, Gad) to try and clip her wings. Half-knowing and half-derivative, it’s cheerful but gaudy and relentless and the story isn’t strong enough to support all the half-baked set pieces.

Blinded by the Light
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • Directed by: Gurinder Chadha
  • Cast: Viveik Kalra, Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Ganatra

In 1982 Luton, Javed (Kalra) is a misfit who struggles to relate to family, neighbours and girls until he discovers the music of Bruce Springsteen. A joyful musical comedy about how music connects people; if it sometimes feels forced, and isn’t going to win prizes for subtlety, it’s still uplifting fun.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold

Dora and the Lost City of Gold
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbez, Michael Peña, Eva Longoria, Danny Trejo

Dora (Moner) is a teenager who spent her childhood exploring the jungle with her parents (Longoria and Peña), but when her parents go missing, Dora leaves high school to find them. A sweet Spy Kids-style adventure that never serves up anything too scary, complex or upsetting for young viewers; Moner gives a warm and delightful performance and is the main reason to watch.

Gemini Man

Gemini Man
  • 2019
  • China / US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ang Lee
  • Cast: Will Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen

Henry (Smith) is a 51-year-old assassin who develops a conscience, but the powers that be want to retire him; then baddie businessman Varris (Owen) sends a 31-year-old clone of Henry after him. The characters are totally underdeveloped and the effects (include Lee’s favourite high frame rate) make it look cheap. Smith is as watchable as ever, but that’s all.

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters
  • 1984
  • US

  • 12
  • Directed by: Ivan Reitman
  • Written by: Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis
  • Cast: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts

Three disgraced parapsychology researchers team up to fight spooks. An efficiently-managed plot, solid jokes, a cast let off the leash – Murray in particular – and thrilling and imaginative effects combine in a masterful balance of respect for the sci-fi genre and mockery of it; sly humour and wide-eyed wonder; star presence (Weaver) and indie self-awareness. A classic.

  • Directed by: Lorene Scafaria
  • Cast: Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, Cardi B

Destiny (Wu) and Ramona (Lopez) are strippers who, with their friends, devise a way of getting more cash out of their clients. Wu gives a sophisticated performance and her dynamic with Lopez pops with convincing intensity, making for a raucous crime story that’s by turns gorgeous, funny and surprisingly moving.

Joker

  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, Rufus Sewell

A look at the later life of Judy Garland (Zellweger), as she marries her fifth husband (Wittrock) and performs a five-week run at a London nightclub. Zellweger is captivating as the deeply lonely star, struggling to keep her work commitments, adored but unhappy and wracked with guilt about being away from her children.

  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Cast: Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, James Earl Jones

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

Rambo: Last Blood
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 41min

  • Directed by: Adrian Grunberg
  • Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Paz Vega, Óscar Jaenada

Rambo (Stallone) heads to Mexico to rescue his teenage niece (Monreal) from the cartels. Stallone is even more mumbly incoherent than he was in previous movies. Grunberg delivers a deluge of brutal death and torture scenes, the film’s depiction of Mexicans is frankly Trumpian, and Rambo himself unwittingly comes across as the worst monster of all.

  • Directed by: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin/Tyler Gillett
  • Cast: Samara Weaving, Adam Brody, Mark O'Brien

Grace (Weaving) is all set to wed Alex (O’Brien) when she finds that his eccentric family wants her to play a deadly game of hide and seek. It strikes a neat balance between action, gore and Trading Places-style wealth satire, and Weaving gives a rock-solid turn as the initially bewildered bride who has to overcome her fears.

  • Directed by: Richard Starzak
  • Cast: Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes

Shaun and his gang of sheep are getting up to mischief that puts them at odds with sensible sheepdog Bitzer; then an alien craft arrives. This dialogue-free pristinely shambolic stop-motion romp is, in its deft way, a crowd-pleaser for everyone, with enough Close Encounters references to keep parents interested.

Woody (Tom Hanks) joins new owner Bonnie at kindergarten where he finds a new purpose in protecting her improvised toy Forky (Hale). Pixar manages to further the story with fine new characters and a satisfyingly teary conclusion, for a fine last chapter in the saga.

  • Cast: Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Janelle Monáe

Moxy (Clarkson) is a sock puppet who lives in Uglyville, who travels to the Institute of Perfection to be trained by Lou (Jonas) for introduction to the real world. With a cast largely of music stars phoning in their voice performances, it tries too hard to be cute and the result is a strain.
