A Monster Calls
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Beautiful and engrossing. A Monster Calls is one of the better, and painfully honest, coming-of-age films made for young people dealing with loss and guilt. It is well crafted, dark and deep. The metaphors and lessons about the journey of life are powerful, and well delivered by great CGI and of course, beautiful subtle acting by Lewis MacDougall. There was not a single dry eye when everyone left the cinema. Even young men wept unashamedly.

Arrival
Arrival (2016)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Arrival is a genuinely well made sci-fi film - in aesthetics, direction and story telling. Enjoyed the build-up, the mind-bending bits reminiscent of Interstellar and Inception, and of course, the impressive performances of the cast. Amy Adams delivers one of her better performances in her role as the linguist brought in to figure out the aliens. An incredibly satisfying film that sticks in your head long after you've left the cinema, and the stuff of many more conversations. A great film.

Passengers
Passengers (2016)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Speechless. Passengers is classic example of a self-indulgent industry that attempts to churn out dung as diamonds. One day, a film professor will use this as a great case study why star power cannot save a bad script. Set as a love story in space, after ten minutes, it became so annoying and absurd that the only saving grace was watching Michael Sheen as Arthur, the robot bartender, who brought much relief. I guess the message that the journey was more important than the destination was completely lost on me. Give me back my 2 hours!

Patriots Day
Patriots Day (2017)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Patriot's Day is an exciting and nailbiting thriller based on the true story of the Boston Marathon bombing. The audience gets to experience the sheer scale of terror and mayhem as the story unfolds. Excellent directing and editing that brings out the poignancy, agony and pain, yet applauds the sheer strength and recovery of a city that comes together and refuses to be beaten by these dysfunctional evil men. A must watch film that is heartfelt, and leaves a lump in your throat as you leave the cinema.

Sing
Sing (2016)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Sing is a sweetly charming, funny and inspiring animated musical, which was surprisingly enjoyable to watch even for adults. The story telling is simple, which easily resonates with adults as much as it does for the children - about not giving up on hopes and dreams, and picking ourselves up when the chips are down. Not only is Sing visually attractive, the power behind this entertaining film is really in its voice casting. Taron Egerton was totally delightful as the teenage ape with the soulful voice.
