Well this is easily the worst film I will see this year. I’m not even going to waste my time on this. Don’t see it, spend your hard earned money elsewhere.
'At its best, The Children Act is a fascinating insight into the life of a troubled judge whose marriage is incessantly burdened by her relentless work ethic. But at its most, it’s a convoluted and bizarre story of a young man’s quest for romantic and spiritual self-discovery that is as cliché and as convoluted as it sounds.'
My full review is heading to JumpCut shortly!
A Simple Favour is by no means Feig’s best project (that slot is reserved for Bridesmaids) but his latest outing still has a lot to be admired.
Led by the dynamic duo of Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively; the former a ‘perfect mom’, the latter anything but, Feig manages to find a complementary balance between the two stars which result in a handful of laughs. Lively in particular is the shining star, who cashes in perhaps her most comedic role…
Searching is a slow-burning cyber-thriller that captured my attention the moment it started; introducing the characters and their past in a seamless, Windows XP presented introduction. The story gathers its momentum as the tension rises, culminating in an unpredictable and well-worked denouement that ties the mystery neatly together.
Go and see it.
