Mini Film Reviews Volume 31

Robot & Frank

In the near future, an ex – jewel thief receives a gift from his son: a robot butler programmed to look after him, but soon the two companions try their luck as a heist team. I really wanted to like this film as it got an interesting concept, it has got a good cast but unfortunately it doesn’t really work and it can’t decided which genre, it is unconvincing and this film is a massive let down.

Away We Go

A couple who is expecting their first child travel around the U.S. in order to find a perfect place to start a family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment if relatives and old friends who just help them discover “home” on their own terms for the first time. This has got potential to be amazing with eccentric characters, it also got a good story but it is too quirky and the humour doesn’t really suited this film, it is a wasted opportunity.

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

An introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors who welcome him to the real world. Well I thought this going to be amazing and really uplifting, I also thought I would connect to this film and I was totally wrong as it hard to relate to this and the characters are hard to like. On paper with those type of film it would be inspirational but this one doesn’t feel like it and it just not as good as I thought it to be.

Me Before You

Louisa Clark is a small-town girl who knows a lot about people around her. Will is a quadriplegic man who hates everyone around him. Louisa is hired by Will’s mum to take care of him for six months. One of those film that is well intentioned and with a fantastic soundtrack, also the acting is amazing, the thing is the story itself can be really insensitive to some people and the whole film in whole can feel a bit forced, although it still a good film.

Summerland

During World War II, an Englishwoman opens her heart to an evacuee after initially resolving to be rid of him in this moving journey of womanhood, love, and friendship. An old-fashioned story that is likeable and with an all-star cast, it is well – made and the chemistry with the two lead is really good, there is a mini flaws in this film as the twist partly ruined this film and it doesn’t really needed it and there are mini-inconsistent, despite that it still an enjoyable film.

21 Bridges

An embattled NYPD detective is thrust into a citywide manhunt for a pair of cop killers after uncovering a massive and unexpected conspiracy. Definitely a well-paced action/ thriller film that is well – made, it also got good set piece as there is an amazing chase that involving the main lead with a villain. It is such a shame that Chadwick Boseman passed away as he is a really good actor, it might not reach the height of other films that are similar but it still an entertaining film and it worthwhile a watch.

Words On Bathroom Walls

Diagnosed with a mental illness halfway through his senior year of high school, a witty, introspective teen struggles to keep it a secret while falling in love with a brilliant classmate who inspires him to not be defined by his condition. Firstly this might be rough around the edges but by the end of this film, I thought it is poignancy, moving and sincere. I see some comparisons to Love, Simon like the feel of this film and you would appreciated your friends and your families after this film and it leave you a lasting impression the acting is astonishing in a remarkable film.
