In the near future, Roy McBride (Pitt) is an astronaut searching for his father Clifford (Jones), himself a pioneering space explorer. But Roy’s classified mission turns deadly. Gray’s stellar third film is a huge step up, mixing horror and action with deeper themes and anchored by a dazzling turn from Pitt, who has never…

  • 4 stars
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: Brian Welsh
  • Cast: Martin Donaghy, Laura Fraser, Rachel Jackson |
  • UK release: 17 May 2019

Johnno (Ortega) and Spanner (Macdonald) are teenagers who plan to go to an illegal rave. The set-up betrays the film’s origins in screenwriter Hurley’s own play, and there’s nothing about the setting that merits the arty black & white photography, but it’s one of the few films that manages to successfully put on…

Dirty Dancing

  • 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…

  • 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…

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

  • 2 stars
  • 2010
  • UK / US
  • 2h 26min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

The seventh installment of the wildly popular wizard franchise is an atmospheric but emotionally hollow and rather rushed take on Rowling's original, with a strong performance from ever-dependable Grint but little else to recommend it other than as an appetiser for next summer's grand finale.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

  • 2 stars
  • 2005
  • UK / US
  • 2h 37min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Newell
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

Harry and his mates get busy at the inter-school of magic TriWizard Tournament, only to be faced with the return of evil mastermind Lord Voldemort (Fiennes). Overlong but entertaining enough adaptation of fourth Potter book directed with by Brit Newell.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

  • 3 stars
  • 2009
  • UK / US
  • 2h 33min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

While the sixth installment in the Harry Potter franchise does venture into darker, more adult areas than its predecessors it also injects more humour and character development than previous encounters, which doesn't always make for a satisfying concoction. Yates picks up in the aftermath of a spectacular attack on London…

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

  • 2007
  • UK / US
  • 2h 18min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

With Harry's fifth return to Hogwarts comes the realisation that Voldemort's return to power is not the only factor that will trouble him and he is forced to confront a different force that matches his growing pains. Rowling's most complex and uneven book has proven to be the most difficult to adapt. Missing the talents…

It is the summer before Harry's third year at Hogwarts, and he has heard that it is Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), a renegade wizard, is the Prisoner of Azkaban. What Harry doesn't suspect is that Black has escaped and is coming after him. Expectations are riding high for Harry Potter 3, with a new director in Cuarón (Y Tu…

Three 17th century witches are brought back to life in modern-day Salem, and go searching for young blood to keep them immortal. Max (Katz) is our hapless hero, helped out of one predicament to the next by resourceful heroine Allison (Vinessa Shaw). The story cracks along, the effects are moderate, the gags good, but it's…

  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Anna Paquin
  • UK release: 8 November 2019

The story of mob enforcer and union official Frank Sheeran (De Niro) and his relationship with Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino) and Mafia string-puller Russell Bufalino (Pesci). The de-aging technology is easy to forgive thanks to the masterly filmmaking, and although there’s no room for a complex female character…

  • 5 stars
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro
  • UK release: 4 October 2019

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: Corey Feldman, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim, Edward Herrmann, Barnard Hughes, Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Dianne Wiest

Anaemic comic horror as a Santa Monica teen falls into bad company in the shape of a mad, bad and dangerous-to-know gang of vampires. Constant MTV visuals make this an altogether resistible affair.

  • Cast: Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Keira Knightley, Martine McCutcheon, Bill Nighy, Rowan Atkinson
  • UK release: 21 November 2003

Curtis aims to prove the anodyne point that love is actually all around us with a huge cast and several different story strands. So we see Nighy, Thompson, Grant, Colin Firth, Martine McCutcheon, Liam Neeson, Alan Rickman, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln and Laura Linney all pop up to play out their roles. Lightweight and…

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Tyler Nilson/Michael Schwartz
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, Zack Gottsagen

Zak (Gottsagen) has Down’s Syndrome and dreams of becoming a wrestler; one night he sneaks out, meets crab fisherman Tyler (LaBeouf) and they go on the lam. It may sound contrived, but the Tyler-Zak relationship is incredibly sweet, and a cast of indie movie royalty make for a cockle-warming delight.

  • Cast: Zoe Margaret Colletti, Michael Garza, Gabriel Rush
  • UK release: 23 August 2019

In Halloween 1968, a gang of teens visit a haunted mansion where they find a book that starts manifesting their fears. Flawed but lively horror flick with plenty going on even when the plot gets choppy, with a charged backdrop of political crisis, prejudice and gossip.

The Shining

  • 5 stars
  • 1980
  • US
  • 2h 26min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • Cast: Jack Nicholson, Shelly Duvall, Philip Stone.

Kubrick's overwrought, overlong horror film dispenses with much of the psychic apparatus of Stephen King's novel to concentrate on the deeper horror of a family turning in on itself. Nicholson, with all the stops out, is bug-eyed and demonic as the writer cracking up violently in an isolated hotel, and the final scenes…

  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bradley Cooper
  • Cast: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott
  • UK release: 5 October 2018

Jackson (Cooper) is a famous musician, his best years behind him, who discovers young singer Ally (Gaga) in a bar one night. What could have been yet another remake is a revelation: Gaga sings up a storm and is nuanced and convincing, but Cooper is extraordinary as co-writer, producer, director and star. Smart, funny and…
