Engaging and touching, an unbelievable true story about a mother's quest to find her son, who was taken away from her by nuns, because she was only a minor when she has him. The story is told through excellent execution and stunning performances from all, especially Coogan (whose character shared alot in common and acted the same as me.) Great direction and a clever script, with an odd but cleverly put together duo as the main characters. An emotional rollercoaster and an Oscar contender, Philomena ticks all the boxes for solid entertainment, with a mixture of sorrow, comedy and wit.
A truly horrible movie. Don't ask me how any person over the age of 7 managed to sit through this piece of crap, but let me assure you, it was the first film in years that I've contemplated leaving halfway through. One of my least MOVIES of all time, and definitely first on my list for worst animation. You'd think if a film was so brainless, lackluster and choppy as this, it would at least be funny and heartfelt. But no, it fails everything. Half a star for 1 or 2 good lines, another half for voice acting, but Free Birds is one of the most brainless, heartless and stupidest animations in along time. And for the sake of comparison, Cars 2 will seem like Oscar material after this piece of garbage, at least a Owen Wilson put in some real heart.
Though highly unlikely middle aged men get drunk and smoke weed, you can't help but fall for the dramatized versions of our favourite actors. A golden cast with everyone you could want. Each character plays an important role in the unravelling of the dreaded Judgement Day, and the essential survival to follow. This movie is executed perfectly, with hilarious lines and scenes, not to mention impressive visual effects. This is the End starts a little flat, but is definitely a worthy and 'laugh out loud' comedy, done in a unique fashion.
Let's just all agree, this film was a blue piece of Smurfin' shit. I mean, did the writers really even try? It seems whenever there was a blank spot they just couldn't resist a stupid Smurfariffic pun to fulfil it. The actors attempt what they've been given, Gleeson and Azaria were both pretty good. Of course it's meant for kids, but even they won't take anything from it, and once the poor cat has been squashed drenched for the billionth time, you start to notice that the humor is downright shit. The more I write about, the more I start hating it. Do you, and your family a favour, and rent Iron Giant or Toy Story instead.
Upbeat and engaging, a story of the violence around English soccer. The story is quick to start, and stays fast-paced throughout. The characters are violent yet lovable, yet the brawl sequences, though abundant and nastily detailed, are perhaps too repetitive Perhaps a pet peeve, but Elijah Wood has a long way to go when it comes to the art of looking macho, but he can sure pull of the charge of darkness. Not a movie to really get any feelings attached to, but we can all quietly praise the enticing, yet dramatized subject. Green Street Hooligans is conclusively successful... it's witty and dark, yet definitely lacks depth.
