As you can tell I'm passionate about cinema and television. I don't think I'll ever get tired of this addiction.

    I Could Go on Singing

    ★★★½

    Judy even in her final film performance is as stunning as she was when she first breakthrough in the mid 1930's. She obviously showcases her god given singing talent as the title would suggest but it's dramatic scenes which don't feature music that showcase her at her best.
    Not enough people talk about this performance and they should because Garland and her on screen partner Dirk Bogarde are that good. Just watch to celebrate to cinematic goodbye to Garland and be amazed by her unequalled talent.

    I had been recommended this film a few months ago when I spoke of my love for Jean Simmons and now I'm grateful the recommendation was correct and this in fact was another stellar turn from the underrated British actor.
    The film at it's core is deeply upsetting but led so confidently by Simmons I was invested even if the dark drama of the subject matter did its best to make me want to stop watching.

    If you yourself are a fan of Simmons like myself you should do your best to check out this very under seen title.

    What was the reason?

    What was the point?

    And most importantly why should I care?

    This film just so boring, even with a bunch of stuff going on including loud explosions, familial drama and a coming of age narrative none of the films plot elements satisfied me and I don't care. Branagh continues his streak of blah directional attempts.

    My let down reaction has nothing to do with the films possible awards chances but it is based on the film itself. There is just nothing to the film and I don't understand the people who think this is a big crowdpleaser.

    Another year, another great performance by Michelle Pfeiffer overlooked. It's clear Pfeiffer is so great in general that with each new film that comes out she doesn't get praised enough because there's nothing unexpected about her being great.

    Mahaffey must also be called out for being a true delight.
