Guardians of the Tomb [AKA 7 Guardians of the Tomb] (2017, dir. Kimble Rendall)

A search for a fabled elixir of youth reveals a network of hidden catacombs. Tatty mash-up of various Raiders, The Mummy, National Treasure and Alien sequels. Fun if you take a drink with each movie borrowing spotted, otherwise wholly avoidable.

Avengers: Infinity War (2018, dir. Anthony Russo & Joe Russo)

The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy team up with others to prevent Thanos obtaining all the infinity stones. Dayglo all-star Marvel tag-team mash-up. For series fans only; tho it’s kinda fun while it’s on, CG fights get dull. TV, not a movie.

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (2017, dir. Jake Kasdan)

Four teens are transported into an old video game. Contrived but fun sequel to the 1996 movie, which gets a lot of comedy out of its avatar/body-swap shtick, though the actual story is as linear as the games it spoofs. eXistenZ for kids, almost.

Incredibles 2 (2018, dir. Brad Bird)

Elastigirl works to redeem public perception of superheroes, while Mr Incredible wrestles with baby Jack-Jack’s burgeoning powers. Perhaps overlong and overly-similar to the first film, this is nevertheless expertly-designed and executed family entertainment.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018, dir. J. A. Bayona)

A mission to rescue dinosaurs from Isla Nublar turns out to be a double-cross. Awkward sequel which doesn’t make a lick of sense, being a string of chase and rescue set-pieces stitched together; the third act is the best, with a horror movie feel to it.

2.22 (2017, dir. Paul Currie)

An air traffic controller starts to believe that the same events are repeating themselves as a warning from the past. A love story with bits of Groundhog Day, Pushing Tin and 12 Monkeys thrown in; the complex backstory and the resolution don’t work.
