Its a powerful drama and with driven-characters with a brilliant Uelese Petaia at the helm of the film. One Thousand Ropes may be a little too enigmatic and guarded for some tastes but Tusi Tamasese does succeed in bringing all the aspects of the story together and conveying the notion that Maea is at a crossroads. The cinematography captured the tension of the film also. Not my cup of tea though.
Whether old or young, a fan of pop or not, Sing is an up-beat spectacle that pushes the triumph of teamwork and the importance of trust, and is undeniably a pleasure to behold. Big-hearted fun for all ages.
There's more detail about Wick's secret world here, more pulp fun. Maybe more dead bodies, too, but who can keep track of that? From the shaky cam one-shot action scenes to the well-choreographed fights, this is a bullet-riddled blast. Overall, John Wick Chapter 2 is a fantastically enjoyable follow-up to one of the best action films of recent years. With beauty to its brutality John Wick Chapter 2 is a stylish, visceral experience - bring on John Wick Chapter 3!
From Zhang Yimou, acclaimed director of Hero and House Of Flying Daggers comes this effective action and fantasy adventure, but it lacks historical depth. An epic spectacle of warfare, action sequences, and inventive weaponry, wrapped up in top notch cinematography and visual effects .. Only with a repetitive story at its core.
I can't pretend to relate to the troubles of a teenage girl in today's society but The Edge of Seventeen comes across as realistic and authentic. Beautifully acted, sensitively written, and actually rather moving. A really pleasant surprise of a film.
