Mini Film Reviews Volume 54


A controversial true crime writer finds a box of super 8 home movies in his new home, revealing that the murder case he is currently researching could be the work of an unknown serial killer whose legacy dates back to the 1960s. This film has got potential with a really good story and the casting really try their hardest, unfortunately this lacking the psychological aspect and it is too predictable and you can predict the ending, there is no jump scares and this film is really disappointing and it not memorable enough.

Hocus Pocus 2

Two young women accidentally bring back the Sanderson Sisters to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child – hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the world. Definitely much better than the first film, it has got a brilliant story and the casting is perfect plus with a likeable lead, it can feel slightly uneven in places and it can be a little bit inconsistent and the songs not that memorable, it can be really funny and especially Doug Jones is absolutely hilarious in his role, overall this is entertaining and fun.

The Good Nurse

Amy, a compassionate nurse single mother suspect a fellow nurse Charles Cullen of murder hundreds of hospital patients. For me personally it’s the acting of Eddie Redmayne and Jessica Chastain that is superb, their chemistry work really well in this film as it is well – made, the thing is, this has got a pacing problem and it can be slightly uneven in places, it can be slightly predictable and too safe, but despite that it still a good film and it is intriguing.


Minna, a young girl, misuses her newfound ability to create and control other people’s dreams to teach her bothersome stepsister a lesson. Surprisingly this is really good and it is a beautiful film with a good moral, the moral is you must get on with people that has a different background from you and I can connect with that aspect, it is generally moving and the soundtrack is fantastic and I like the idea to this film, the thing is with this film it can’t decided which age range it aimed at, it could be slightly dark for the younger generation as there is one bit in this film could be slightly scary for them, despite that it is an enjoyable film.

Wendell & Wild

Two scheming demon brothers, Wendell and Wild, enlist the aid of 13-year-old Kat Elliot to summon them to the Land of the Living. Fantastic looking film and this got the wowed factor with a multi-layered story, you actually care with these characters and this has got superb vocal in this film, the characters are great and this film is definitely memorable from start to finish, it is moving and it is sincere in this coming-of-age animation film that is eye catching that draw you in automatically, this is pure escapism and it capture your imagination.

Woman In Gold

Maria Altman, an octogenarian Jewish refugee, takes on the Austrian government to recover artwork she believes rightfully belongs to her family, It is one of those film that doesn’t drawn you in automatically but this is remarkable, it also based on a true story and the acting is absolutely amazing and they are really convincing, this is a slow burner type of film and it never get too overcomplicated with the flashback element, this is tense but it still watchable.
