Mini Film Reviews Volume 47

Four Good Days

A mother helps her daughter Molly work though four crucial days of recovery from substance abuse. I really wanted to like this and I thought I can connect to this film and it is well casted plus Glenn Close is excellent, the first hour is actually really good and unfortunately the midsection falters and it never recover. You ended up you don’t really have sympathy for these characters and you really wanted to care for them, this is a major disappointment because of those reason.

Miss Potter

The story of Beatrix Potter, the author of the beloved and best – selling children’s book, “The Tale Of Peter Rabbit”, and her struggle for love, happiness, and success. Normally when a film being based on a true story they can be brilliant, whereas with this one it doesn’t really moved you and this one doesn’t wowed you. Too be fair with the acting they really try there best but this is too uneven, this is too safe and you can’t really connect with these characters and it not memorable.

Beautiful Boy

Based on the best – selling pair of memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy chronicles the heart-breaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years. This has got potential and the story is there plus Steve Carell is amazing in his role, but unfortunately the other casting is a bit bland and with this being an addiction film you have care for these people, this doesn’t leaves you a lasting impression on you as it should be.

Last Seen Alive

Will’s soon to be ex – wife mysteriously vanishes at a gas station. He delves into the town’s criminal underbelly while running from the authorities in a race against time to find her. Once it flashed back to their marriage with the two stars it actually work really well, the ending to this film is excellent and it is well casted. The only thing is, it is too predictable and it can be too silly and the violence can be really excessive, despite that it is well – made with a good story.


The incredible true story of Marie Sklodowska – Curie and her Nobel Prize – winning work that changed the world. Firstly Rosamund Pike is absolutely amazing in her role and the historical element work really well, also it is a feminism type of film which I admire, the pacing isn’t quite there and it can get too overcomplicated plus it feel rather disjointed. Underneath it all there is a brilliant story and the acting is wonderful and it is such a shame it has got those flaws.

The Summit Of The Gods

A photojournalist’s obsessive quest for the truth about the first expedition to Mt. Everest leads him to search for an esteemed climber who went missing. Gorgeous looking film with stunning scenery and the story is there, it feel rather disjointed and the midsection doesn’t really gel together. It not as good as it supposed to be and it is a little disappointing, overall this feel like an epic style of film and it is different which I like about it, it is a well – made and a well intention film.
