Mini Film Reviews Volume 35

End Of Sentence

Newly widowed Frank Fogel and his estranged son Sam have to team up to go on a journey to Ireland to scatter Sam’s mum and Frank’s wife. This is normally my type of film a road and a coming-of-age film but unfortunately this doesn’t work, the story feel rather undeveloped and there is no chemistry between the two lead, overall this film doesn’t leave you a lasting impression on you.

Cinderella (2021)

A modern movie musical with a bold take on the classic fairy tale. Our ambitious heroine has big dreams and with the help of her fab Godmother, she perseveres to make them come true. I’m curious with this film as it goes either way but this is a shambles, for me personally the twist make this slightly off putting as none of the songs are not memorable, it also lacking the charm and it feel rather forced and you really wanted to like this but it is too everywhere.

Dr. Bird’s Advice For Sad Poets

In the emotionally charged, wild and humorous world of sixteen-year-old James Whitman, we see his struggle to overcome anxiety and depression by seeking advice from Dr. Bird – an imaginary pigeon therapist – in the wake of his sister disappearance. Well to be honest with you the only good thing with this film is the performance of Taylor Russell as she is amazing, the main lead is slightly bland and you can’t really connect as this film is not relatable enough.

The Iron Giant

A young boy befriends a giant robot from outer space that a paranoid government agent wants to destroy. First time I ever hear of this film so I thought this would be amazing but it really capture that old school type of vibe, it also too safe and it also takes itself too seriously and it doesn’t offer you something new. The vocal talent is nothing special and it doesn’t wowed you or moved you at all, unfortunately it is one of those film that is a massive let down.

The Conjuring 2

Ed and Lorraine Warren travel to North London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by a supernatural spirit. Some sequels can be rather lame but this one is truly spectacular and it creep you under your skin, the kids in this film is amazing and really convincing and if you really into physiological horror film that made you think, this film is ideal for you and it can occasionally loses some momentum in the middle, it is still a superbly made film.

Searching For Sugar Man

Two South Africans set out to discover what happened to their unlikely musical hero, the mysterious 1970s rock n roller, Rodriguez. Near perfect documentary that is so engrossing with a fabulous soundtrack, the first half and hour is really touching and after that it can get slightly uneven. It has got really nice moment in this documentary and overall the scenery look gorgeous and this documentary is certainly different but memorable.

A Man Called Ove

Ove, an ill – tempered, isolated retiree who spends his days enforcing block association rules and visiting his wife’s grave, has finally given up on life just as an unlikely friendship develops with his boisterous new neighbour. One of the most extraordinary film which is strangely uplifting and the moral is don’t take life granted, the acting is absolutely amazing and it leave you a lasting impression on you, it is sad but funny tale that is so relatable and you would rooted for the main lead.

  1. The only one of these that I know is Searching for Sugarman and I agree it is very good. Of the others, A Man Called Ove sounds interesting.
