Mini Film Reviews Volume 45

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

When their relationship turns sour, a couple undergoes a medical procedure to have each other erased from their memories. This film have got a fantastic cast and I really like the concept but this try to be too overcomplicated, the pacing is all wrong as it doesn’t hold your interested and overall this isn’t memorable whatsoever, you really wanted to like this but you can’t really connect with this film and unfortunately this doesn’t really work.

The Last Letter From Your Lover

A pair of interwoven stories set in the past and present follow an ambitious journalist determined to solve the mystery of a forbidden love affair at the centre of a trove of secret love letters from 1965. It has got potential and it has got a fantastic story plus it is well casted but this lacked the emotional aspect, you don’t really feel anything with these characters whatsoever and it not really a feel-good type of film, it is too predictable and too safe and this is not memorable.


An Irish boy named Keegan and a Spanish girl named Moya journey into the mythical world of the Megaloceros Giganteus who teach them to appreciate Riverdance as a celebration of life. A promising start and with an easy-to-follow story, unfortunately this run out of ideas earlier on and it never recover, it never really laugh out loud funny but it does have some nice moment and it doesn’t wowed you whatsoever and that is a real shame.

The Report

Idealistic Senate staffer Daniel J. Jones, tasked by his boss to lead an investigation into the CIA’s post 9/11 Detention and Interrogation Program, uncovers shocking secrets. One thing with this film is the acting as they are amazing, it is really clever and really intelligent and it is definitely a well – made film, it might not be as tense and there is no real mystery and it doesn’t really gripped you as much, despite that it still a good film and the pacing is just right.

The Truffle Hunters

Deep in the forests of Piedmont, Italy, a handful of men, seventy or eighty years old, hunt for the rare and expensive white Alba truffle which to date has resisted all of modern science’s efforts at cultivation. Firstly I really admire this documentary which try to be something different and the scenery is outstanding, it also not life affirming as this is too uneven, but despite that it is a well intentioned and likeable documentary.

The Finest Hours

The coast guard makes a daring rescue attempt off the coast of Cape Cod after a pair of oil tankers are destroyed during a blizzard in 1952. Gorgeous looking film which has got some exciting set pieces and this will gripped you as well, being based on a good true story it pay respect to the survivor and this is watchable, the only thing is, it doesn’t really gel together from the start but once it getting going it actually poignancy and it will moved you.


On the Italian Riviera, an unlikely but strong friendship grows between a human being and a sea monster disguised as a human. Bright and colourful animation film with a simple story and it is generally heartfelt, it is likeable and it definitely made you smile by the end of this film and the vocal talent is really good, it might not be laugh out loud funny and it doesn’t reach the height of other Pixar films but it definitely suitable for all ages and a family viewing.
