Mini Film Reviews Volume 14

Sonic The Hedgehog

After discovering a small, blue, fast hedgehog, a small – town police officer must help him defeat an evil genius who wants to do experiments on him. The only good thing about this film there is a really cute dog in this film, there is no plot as it is thinly plotted with no story and they just rushed it from the start and there is no character development. It could have been a fun, funny and generally exciting but it wasn’t.

Legend Of Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’Hoole

When a young owl is abducted by an evil owl army, he must escape with new – found friends and seek the legendary Guardians to stop the menace. An interesting ideal but it couldn’t quite pull it off as it hasn’t got the right balance as it is bleak and it can be terrifying for youngster and the characters are hard to like with bland voices from a stellar cast, the story is okay but it can be overcomplicated and it would confused the kids and adult alike.

The Biggest Little Farm

Documentarian John Chester and his wife Molly work to develop a sustainable farm on 200 acres outside of Los Angeles. I really wanted to like this as it got an interesting format to this film/ documentary but once I watch all of it I don’t feel anything for this film/documentary it meant to be uplifting and life affirming but it wasn’t, the other thing is it doesn’t hold my interest or any likeable people and you couldn’t care less about them, this is a major disappointment.

The Mustang

The story of Roman Coleman, a violent convict, who is given the chance to participate in a rehabilitation therapy program involving the training of wild mustangs. The only bonus in this film is Bruce Dern performance and that about it, I found the main lead rather bland and it somewhere in the middle as the story is slightly muddle and unexplained and left you with unanswered question. You don’t really care about these character as it just everywhere and the only memorable thing in the film is Bruce Dern, not the main lead.

Curious George

The man in the yellow hat is an oddball museum employee who looks after his pet monkey, an inquisitive and wonderful creature whose enthusiasm often gets the best of him. The only good thing about this film a cute monkey in it and the soundtrack is absolutely amazing and that about it. The male lead is really irritating and the extra just blended in the background, the story is just okay and it is rather short with the running time and they try to crammed in too many things and try to rushed it, in the process.

Richard Jewell

After foiling a bomb attack at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic security guard Richard Jewell is an instant hero, however when the FBI leaks to the media that he is a suspect in the bombing his life becomes a nightmare. You generally care about these characters as it is character driven and often it is generally moving, the downside to this film it is unsure about the pacing and it can be slightly uneven. I don’t fault the acting at all as they are amazing and it does not as powerful as it should be.


A physician who can talk to animals embarks on an adventure to find a legendary island with a young apprentice and a crew of strange pets. I know everyone slaughter this film but I don’t think it that bad, I really like all the all – star cast that providing the voices of the animals as it blended in very well and the SFX is outstanding, it is well intentioned as well and the thing is the role of Robert Downey Jr as he hasn’t got that charisma or the personality to play the main lead, I didn’t think much of the villain as well.

Remember Me (2019)

After discovering his old flame now has Alzheimer’s, a hopelessly in love widower fakes his way into her senior living community in an effect to reunite with her. I really want to love this film and connect with it but it couldn’t quite do it as it is like slightly uneven in places and not as powerful enough, fortunately the characters is likeable and some winning performances like the excellent Bruce Dern and the comedy aspect of it Brian Cox, for me personally its enough to like this film because of those reason.

The Tale Of Despereaux

An unusually brave mouse helps to restore happiness to a forlorn kingdom after making friends with a gentleman rat. I really admire of a different type of animation that blended all the story into intertwined tale of different perspective and it is very clever how they done it, it is a unique story that has a star-studded voice cast that is so good and it not quite enchanted enough to entertain the viewers.

The Water Diviner

An Australian man travels to Turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons. A thought-provoking film that certainly bring you majestic cinematography and a really good story for the first-time director of Russell Crowe, it certainly does work really well with beautiful storytelling and the acting is incredible, if there is any negative thing in the film it would be nice to make it solid and make it utterly compelling as it not quite powerful and the message get lost in the film, never less it still a really good film.
