9bach

Welsh experimental folk-rock band 9bach started out all traditional but decided it was time to break with tradition. The result? Haunting and almost psychedelic. Still singing in Welsh obv, their sprawling songs are beautiful yet mind-bending. For you non-Welsh speakers out there their name is also a pun, kind of…

Aladdin

  • 3 stars
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Numan Acar, Billy Magnussen, Alan Tudyk, Frank Welker
  • UK release: 22 May 2019

Disney’s live-action version of 1992’s Aladdin features a fun, fast-talking and scene-stealing Smith and terrific work from Massoud and Scott as Aladdin and Jasmine, but against that there’s some weird VFX, odd directorial choices and a well-intentioned but clunky female empowerment number. Enjoyable and entertaining…

Dirty Dancing

  • 3 stars
  • 1987
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Emile Ardolino
  • Written by: Eleanor Bergstein
  • Cast: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Cynthia Rhodes

The plot – in the summer of 1963 bad boy Johnny (Swayze) meets good girl Baby (Grey) and teaches her hip grinding, eventually winning the respect of her parents. Sure it's full of stereotyping, bad dialogue and a pre-teen sugar coated prurience, but decades on Dirty Dancing still has the ability to send a generation of…

High Life

  • 2 stars
  • 2018
  • Germany / France / UK / Poland / US
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Claire Denis
  • Cast: Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, Mia Goth,

Monte (Pattinson) is the last man alive on a space mission, left to care for a young baby; in flashbacks, we find out the unsettling truth of what happened to the others. Denis’s first movie in English is uncompromisingly weird, and in spite of some unforgettable images, it’s a bizarre and somewhat incoherent mind-bender.
