In a near future, a family reckons with questions of love, connection, and loss after their A.I. helper unexpectedly breaks down. Firstly I really wanted to like this film and I really like the mixture of genre of drama and science fiction, it is one of those film that is really hard to get into and it becoming too overcomplicated, the pacing is off and it doesn’t hold your interest and overall it is unwatchable.
A veteran hunter helps an FBI agent investigate the murder of a young woman on a Wyoming Native American reservation. This has got stunning scenery and the story is there and it is well made, the acting is okay but nothing amazing and it can’t decided which genre whether it is a mystery or a whodunnit type of film, it can be too predictable and it is too uneven and too inconsistent.
The Curse Of Bridge Hollow
A man and his daughter must team up to save their town after an ancient and mischievous spirit causes Halloween decorations to come to life and wreak havoc. Well it has got impressive CGI/SFX that look amazing, it has got a brilliant story and the film itself look gorgeous, but it isn’t laugh out loud funny, the acting is nothing special but overall it lacking the charmed and that is a real shame.
Shall We Dance
John, a bored and overworked estate lawyer, sees a beautiful woman standing at the window of a dance studio on a daily basis. He signs up for ballroom dancing lessons with hopes of meeting her. A well-meaning film which is generally a feel-good type of film, it is well casted and the first hour is rather uneven but the final third is really good, it might not be the best Richard Gere film but it is still likeable.
Lady And The Tramp (2019)
Lady is distraught when she is blamed for all the havoc that Sarah’s cats caused in her owners house. Things take a turn when Lady runs away and Tramp, a street dog saves her. A sweet and charming film that is magical, the animals vocal in this film is certainly spot on and totally convincing, the story is beautiful and overall this is watchable and it suitable for all ages. The only thing is, it can get a little inconsistent at the early stages but despite that it is certainly eye catching.
Raya And The Last Dragon
In a realm known as Kumandra, a re – imagined Earth inhabited by an ancient civilization, a warrior named Raya is determined to find the last dragon. Gorgeous looking film that capture your imagination, it also deal with diversity and that is really important and it is a feminism type of film, it has got a multi layered story and the character is great and it is heartfelt and this will moved you, it is another film that can get slightly inconsistent at the early stages, it is a superbly made film.
The Art Of Racing In The Rain
Enzo, a golden retriever, learns that the methods used on the racetrack by his owner, a Formula One driver, can also be used to navigate through life. One of the best film that I actually see as this is life affirming, it is relatable and generally heartfelt as it is sad but uplifting type of film and it can be really funny, the acting is absolutely amazing and the moral is cherished every moment cherished people along the way, I personally connect to that message and I’m sure people will connect to that message same like me, it will leaves you a lasting impression on you.

I think personally you would probably like Raya and The Last Dragon, and I reckon you might like Shall We Dance; it got a good cast and even Stanley Tucci in that film
