The Imitation Game
During World War 2, the English mathematical genius Alan Turing tries to crack the German Enigma code with help from fellow mathematicians. This is a well-made film with really good acting overall and with a brilliant story as this is based on a true story, I really like all the key moment in the war in generally and the cinematographer with that aspect of the film is absolutely amazing. The only thing is they didn’t really explore his sexuality as much they should do and delve into the man he is, nether less it still a good film.
Nelson Mandela, in his first term as President of South Africa, initiates a unique venture to unite the Apartheid – torn land: enlist the national rugby team on a mission to win the 1995 Rugby World Cup. This is incredibly moving and a character driven film that it not just about the rugby but it also about politics and the man himself Nelson Mandela, the acting overall is superb and you would generally rooted for them at the same time.
Armed with only one word, Tenet, and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. This is really entertaining and a thoughtful story that will keep you watching from start to finish and it basically time travelling and the future that merge into one, the effect is astounding and absolutely amazing and it is definitely watchable. The only thing is the pace of the film can flag and losing the momentum and the acting is great.

The Lion King

This beautifully crafted film with a star-studded voice cast and the music is magnificently and generally moving, you would connect with these colourful characters and the scenery is sublimely and it certainly gripped you from start to finish. Don’t bother with the live action one as this one is certainly much better and you would connect with this version of this film.
