Hotel Transylvania: Transformania

After one experiment, Johnny turns into a monster and everyone else becomes human. Now it has to be seen whether they will be able to reverse this experiment. With regarding to the Hotel Transylvania films, this one is the weakest one as it loses the charm due to the vocal changes and for me personally it ruined the film, it not that funny and overall it seems rather rushed.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

The journey that led to Charles Dickens creation of “A Christmas Carol”, a timeless take that would redefine Christmas. On paper this would be an amazing film with an all star cast and the idea is there, it sort of struggling due to the concept of this film and it is such a shame as this got potential, but it fail to deliver anything as it is not memorable enough.

Tick, Tick…Boom!

On the cusp of his 30th birthday, a promising young theatre composer navigates love, friendship, and the pressures of life as an artist in New York City. Normally I’m a massive fan of musical so I thought this would be amazing, unfortunately it doesn’t really work and overall you don’t really feel anything for these characters, it not relatable and it is too safe and it not really a feel-good film.

Land

Edee, in the aftermath of an unfathomable event, finds herself unable to stay connected to the world she once knew and in the face of the uncertainty, retreats to the magnificent, but unforgiving, wilds of the Rockies. It is one of those film that meant to be inspiration and really uplifting, it is rather depressing and it also got undeveloped characters that you can’t really rooted for them and overall it feel rather rushed.

The Giant Pear

Life in Solby is nice and peaceful until one day Mitcho and Sebastian find a message in a bottle by the harbour. The bottle is from the missing mayor of Solby with a message that he is on a mysterious island and has made a great discovery. A cute and a charming animation film which try to be different which I admire, the story itself is really good and it is definitely memorable, the only thing is, it a bit of a pacing problem at the start but it still a really nice film.

Christmas With The Coopers

The intertwined stories of four generations of Coopers unfold right before the annual family reunion on Christmas Eve. Can they survival the most beautiful time of the year?. Too be honest with you I thought this might be rubbish, but this was actually surprisingly good as it work really well and it is moving, poignancy and real, the acting is amazing and it is generally funny. It can get a bit uneven toward the end but it is a real Christmas film.

Munich: The Edge Of War

A British diplomat travels to Munich in the run – up to World War II, where a former classmate of his from Oxford is also en route, but is working for the German government. It actually a masterpiece from the start of his film, it is compelling and totally unpredictable and with fantastic acting especially from Jeremy Irons, the supporting cast is also superb and it is one of those film that will drawn you in from start to finish.

  1. The only one of these that I know is Munich The Edge of War. I agree with your comments that it is a very good film. I thought it was interesting after the films we saw recently that focused on Churchill and how it reassessed the role of Chamberlain.

    1. That is the type of film we probably watch on the cinema as we both like true story type of film, you have got a good point of seeing film that focus on Churchill together
