Dexter Fletcher's has made a fun musical, but not an insightful biopic. It's not airbrushing his past, but it's skimming the surface.
It could have become a weary chronicle of woe. However, the flamboyant noise and humour saves the day. The conclusion is debatable, but this is worth it for the Pinner rock opera opening.
I was genuinely shocked when Danny Boyle's name appeared at the end credits. This pleasant, but a flimsy RomCom.
It's amiable, not that funny; and like the rail side recording studio goes off the rails. The premise requires a massive pinch of salt, and can you have a hero who is prepared to plagiarise on a massive scale and to steal plaudits that shouldn't be his?
People were sniffy about this, but i have to say i really enjoyed it.
The film can be simplistic, but also very delicate. The sugarcoating is to the max, but it doesn't matter. Ali and Mortensen make a tremendously engaging, odd couple. Both giving nuanced and well-observed performances, that enabled me to survive the sentimentality.
This is the world of Air Jordan's. Hulk Hogan, and Ren and Stimpy. But this is deeper than a nostalgia-fest, tapping into abuse, loneliness and self-harm.
It's better than Kids and has a lot of Linklater coarsing through it's veins. Mid90s is an effective time capsule, buoyed by one of the best soundtracks of the year and some wonderfully natural performances. Skating films seems to be the genre that consistently deliver.
Movie afternoon with Gertie.
Marvel goes Back to the Future-style, with a welcome (and long overdue) feminist slant. The gags mostly land, and the stunts keep pace. Although the plot takes a while to find it's feet.
Yes there's a scene-stealing cat, but Larson totally dominates this. In many ways the film itself doesn't glow in the same way as Larson does. Ultimately Captain Marvel is enjoyable enough popcorn entertainment. Larson makes a thoroughly engaging superhero, witty, courageous and with a sensitivity many others of the Marvel stable lack.
