10.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 their family. With a road movie they normally moving and relatable but this one is hard to connect with, the acting is okay but nothing amazing and it doesn’t have that wowed factor at all, it is such a shame as this got potential and it certainly failed.
A wife questions her life choices as she travels to Stockholm to see her husband receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. Too be fair with Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce they really try their hardest but overall it’s the film in general, this lacking the emotional aspect and its hard to care for the two lead and the ending is poor, overall this isn’t memorable whatsoever.
Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become a symbol of hope after surviving the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Being based on a true story you would expected this film leaves you a lasting impression on you, it is rather crude and it isn’t as subtle, as it needed to be sincere, it definitely not inspirational or uplifting and it not as powerful as it should be.
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 that uncertainty. Overall this film is about finding yourself and it is meant to be a feel-good experience, unfortunately this is too bleak and so depressing plus you ended up you don’t really care about with these characters.
Determined teen Din is longing to reconnect with his childhood best friend when he meets a wish granting dragon who shows him the magic of possibilities. I personally love the story to this film but it feel rather forced, it is too safe and too predictable and none of the vocal talent is nothing amazing, it not really laugh out loud funny and this one isn’t as memorable as it should be.
5.The World’s End
Five friends who reunite in an attempt to top their epic pub crawl from twenty years earlier unwittingly become humanity’s only hope for survival. Personally I’m a fan of the two Cornetto films so I thought this would be amazing, it is simply weird and totally unfunny despite it has got a good cast, it is one of those film with a great idea but this is too surreal and rather strange.
4.The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas
Through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a German concentration camp, a forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence. Normally with this type of film they normally heart-breaking but I really wanted to like this a bit more, unfortunately the ending is rather poor and it feel rather uneven plus it has mini-inconsistent.
Between 1968 and 1983, a San Francisco cartoonist becomes an amateur detective obsessive with tracking down the Zodiac Killer, an unidentified individual who terrorizes Northern California. First time when I watch this film it has got a good story, the casting is spot on but the pacing is a problem and it doesn’t hold your interested, it is too predictable and it doesn’t creep you under your skin.
The saga of the Eternals, a race of immortal beings who lived on Earth and shaped its history and civilizations. Don’t get me wrong Chloe Zhao is a brilliant director and I love her vision of her own version of a superhero film, there are stunning scenery but unfortunately this is too overlong and it try to be too overcomplicated, it has got a lot of flaws but I do like the idea to this film.
1.The Iron Giant
A young boy befriends a giant robot from outer space that a paranoid government agent wants to destroy. Usually I connect to the friendship aspect and I loved the old school type of animation, this one is a let-down, it doesn’t have that emotional aspect and it doesn’t leaves you a lasting impression on you, the vocal talent is nothing amazing and it feel rather forced.
