Mini Film Reviews Volume 7

Jupiter Ascending

A young woman discovers her destiny as an heiress of intergalactic nobility and must fight to protect the inhabitants of Earth from an ancient and destructive industry. From the start of this film it look really intriguing and with CGI mix in with the special effect are astonishing, somehow the film get bogged down and becoming muddled and you couldn’t care less about these characters. The villain in this film is not sinister or even memorable enough, never less the visual are out of this world.

Waiting For Anya

During the harrows of WWII, Jo, a young shepherd along with the help of the widow Horcada, helps to smuggle Jewish children across the border from southern France into Spain. I really wanted to enjoy this film as it got an intriguing story but I found it episodic like if it made just for television, all the characters are hard to like and it not compelling enough and it not watchable, the performances is just ok and nothing special.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

A mother personally challenges the local authorities to solve her daughter’s murder when they fail to catch the culprit. I hear a lot of brilliant reviews and this film is Oscar Nominated so I thought it going to be really good, too be honest with you I thought it was ok and plain average because for me personally they killed off the most interesting character and that is Woody Harrelson character and not enough flashback of what actually happen to the daughter and at the end of the film it gives you unanswered questions.

Zombieland: Double Tap

Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock move to the American heartland as they face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors, and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family. This is plain hilarious from the start and it is generally heartfelt at the same time and these characters are likeable, it is action packed but it has got a really good story to this film and the banter of Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson is really good. My only criticism is the extra scene at the end of the credit as that is generally unfunny.

The Aristocats

With the help of a smooth-talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country. This film is generally cute, funny and heart warming and the voice cast is spot on and the setting is exceptional as some part of the film is set in France in this hand drawn animation, the song in the film is generally catchy especially the jazzy version of Everybody Wants to Be a Cat, in this beautiful film.
