James Cameron-Wilson analyses the latest UK box office, with Free Guy still #1. At #6 is GI Joe spin-off Snake Eyes with Henry Golding. Sci-fi action film noir Reminiscence with Hugh Jackman only limps in at #11 a film so dire that, for the first time ever, James overheard somebody asking for their money back! As DVD of the week, he recommends the Oscar-winning The Father with Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman with excellent bonus material. And he also likes Netflix's Beckett, a thriller with John David Washington.
James Cameron-Wilson welcomes the arrival in cinemas of Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical In The Heights, laments the disappointing performance of double Oscar-winner The Father, starring Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman and admires hugely the genre-bending Nobody which he calls a cross between Death Wish and American Beauty! He looks at the latest video game adaptation Monster Hunter and, although well down the chart, admires the documentary The Reason I Jump. He welcomes the arrival for home entertainment of the winner of two Oscars, Judas and the Black Messiah.
