Coming off the heels of the rather average Secret Life of Pets, Illumination's next biggest hit is certainly a step in the right direction. Though it never manages to quite reach the heights of Pixar standards, Sing delivers (as promised) in more ways than one. With enjoyable on screen personalities, and over the top set pieces coupled with the gorgeous animation Illumination has become famous for, Sing proves to be an absolute delight for all ages. If I had to critique anything I would say that for a film centered around music I was really expecting a bit more singing to take place. But thats really just a nitpick in what was otherwise a very entertaining and consistent effort that never falls flat.
Though it may not hold up in its cinematography to modern day standards, 1970's Love Story feels more real and fleshed out than any 2010s Nicholas Sparks movie. Made with sincere integrity and elevated by passionate performances, Love Story never feels dated in conveying universal themes of true love (duh) and tragedy. Awkward and unnecessary at times? Maybe so, but its hard to deny the endearing connection felt between these star crossed lovers as we follow them throughout happiness and hardship. Just make sure you have a box of tissues nearby for the third act, your gonna need them.
Dramatic, action packed, emotional, nostalgic, and tragic all at once, Rogue One perfectly emulates the term "space opera". As Star Wars movies go of course it is epic in scale and proportion. But perhaps the greatest strength of Rogue One is its incredible pacing, which has you bouncing from planet to planet across the galaxy as you marvel at explosions while getting your heart strings pulled for the fate of our heroes.
Though it never strays too far from formula, Doctor Strange is a thoroughly entertaining and satisfying entry to an ever growing rebirth of superhero flicks. However, as with most of these films, your overall enjoyment depends on how invested you are into the Marvel Universe.
Little Boy is a rather solid film that isn't too overbearing in its message but is able to convey enough meaning and heart to get its point across. Not the greatest film ever made but certainly a religious movie done right.
