Downton Abbey review – ridiculous, vanilla-flavoured fun 9 Sep 7:01pm Downton Abbey review – ridiculous, vanilla-flavoured fun
Imelda Staunton joins Maggie Smith and co in this standalone film that feels like an intensely glucose Christmas special There are some films that you really have to see on the big screen. Not this one, though. To get the full, authentic experience, you’ll need to see it on the small screen, on 27 December, with quart of eggnog inside you and enough Quality Street to trigger a diabetic coma. It is at all times ridiculous – but, I have to admit, quite enjoyable. This standalone movie special is based on the smash-hit telenovela

Jojo Rabbit review – Scarlett Johansson lifts smug Hitler comedy 9 Sep 11:34am Jojo Rabbit review – Scarlett Johansson lifts smug Hitler comedy
A charming turn from the Oscar-nominated actor is the best thing about a thinly etched second world war satire There’s a smug surface-level audacity to second world war “anti-hate satire” Jojo Rabbit, a film that employs a repetitive wink as it proudly trots out its central gimmick, recasting Hitler as a buffoonish imaginary friend for maximum lols. In Taika Waititi’s patchy follow-up to Thor: Ragnarok, loosely based on the novel by Christine Leunens, young keen-to-be-accepted German boy Johannes aka Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) wants nothing more than to be friends with the fuhrer and on his quest to become the country’s fiercest Jew-killing patriot, he invents a fantasy version as a form of guidance, played by Waititi himself.
