The Prestige is another incredible film from Christopher Nolan, once again proving himself as one of the greatest directors of all time. All of the performances from the incredible cast are exceptional, especially the leads Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale, whose character's you really empathise with and are intrigued with. The jaw dropping final reveal is incredible, and ties all the movies mysteries together, whilst giving a satisfying but mind blowing ending. The only thing holding it back is that it isn't very re watchable as the main appeal of the film are the twists - other than that, a must watch.
Spoilers Ahead: Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith is an incredible ending to a pretty poor trilogy before this point. The final battle between Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker is extremely powerful and exciting to watch. Seeing Anakin turn into Darth Vader feels rewarding for fans of the original trilogy, and Padame's reaction to Anakin turning to the dark side is written and performed excellently. The only thing holding it back is that the films before it are very weak so you don't feel as much of a build up or an attachment to the characters as you should of.
Dr No is a great first outing for 007 and lays the ground works for one of my favourite franchises of all time. Sean Connery is amazing as James Bond and Dr No is a formidable villain who poses as a real threat. It has loads of charm and has aged really well, still being incredibly entertaining after nearly 60 years. The ending does feel slightly anti-climatic and some of the characters don't act with a lot of logic which can be annoying, but you can't deny how entertaining and important it is.
Cinderella is a rare case scenario where the Disney live action remake craze actually paid off and created a great film. The live action format is used to the film's advantage, with CGI adding to the films charm and increasing the Disney magic. All the cast give amazing performances, with the stand outs being Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother and Helen Bonham-Carter as the fairy godmother (despite only appearing in one scene and being wasted a little). There are some cringeworthy moments which hold it back but it is still a great movie.
Ralph Breaks the Internet is a weak sequel that, despite some great moments, ultimately misses the mark. The characters from the first film are completely ruined, with Ralph becoming a whiny, clingy character and Vanellope not admitting to her mistakes, with the film acting as if Ralph was the only one who did things wrong, despite Vanellope being just as flawed. Fix-It-Felix and Calhoun are absolutely wasted and are used in some ridiculous side plot which we don't even get to see. Additionally, it already feels extremely outdated with many of the trends shown in the film already being dead. There are some great moments, such as the 'Oh My Disney' sequence with loads of easter eggs and clever jokes, all the disney princess moments which subvert the usual cliches to give us something new and fresh, along with the hilarious musical segment with more clever subversions. Despite these, the film still falls short.
