Mini Film Reviews Volume 59

Corpse Bride

When a shy groom practices his wedding vows in the inadvertent presence of a deceased young woman, she rises from the grave assuming he has married her. This is my type of film and I thought this would be amazing, I really like the story to this film but for me personally it is generally unfunny and it takes itself too seriously, it also can’t decided which audience it aimed at, as it can be rather dark for the younger generation, the idea is there and this has got potential but it certainly failed as this isn’t memorable enough.

Stuntman (2018)

Follows professional stuntman Eddie Braun as he prepares and attempts the most dangerous stunt in cinematic history. It is one of those documentaries which is well made and it is simple to follow, unfortunately this lacking the emotional impact and the people is hard to like and you can’t connect with this documentary, the pacing isn’t quite there as it doesn’t hold your interest despite you really wanted to like this, for me personally this is one of the weakest documentaries as it got these flaws.

A Week Away

With nowhere left to go, Will Hawkins finds himself at camp for the first time. His instinct is to run, but he finds a friend, a father figure, and even a girl who awakens his heart. Most of all, he finally finds a home. Gorgeous looking film which is easy to follow as this is watchable and this is well meaning, the first hour doesn’t really flow and it doesn’t gel together but the second hour is really good and it got catchy tunes, Bailee Madison and Sherri Shepherd is excellent in their roles and that what made this film really good and this is a likeable film as well.

The Phantom Of The Open

Maurice Flitcroft, a dreamer and unrelenting optimist, manages to gain entry to the 1976 British Open Golf Championship qualification round despite being a complete novice. Firstly, the acting in this film is amazing and they are likeable, it is a crowd pleaser type of film which you needed and it is joyous and uplifting, personally the first hour is too weird and too surreal but it doesn’t really needed that in this film, the second hour is superb and it is quietly powerful and it will move you, this is actually enjoyable and it is an underdog type of film.

The Railway Children Return

Follow a group of children who are evacuated to a Yorkshire village during the Second World War, where they encounter a young soldier who, like them, is far away from home. A slow burner film that is surprisingly really good, the pacing is just perfect and the flashback element work really well, I personally think it’s the first hour doesn’t really gel together and it doesn’t flow as much, despite that the second hour is really intriguing and the characters are likeable and overall, this is suitable for all ages and it is a family viewing film.

Spider – Man: Into Spider – Verse

Teen Miles Morales becomes the Spider – Man of his universe and must join with five spider – powered individuals from other dimensions to stop a threat for all realities. Everything about this film certainly ticked all the boxes as this got a memorable villain, the story is there and it never gets too overcomplicated with the flashback element, it also tries to be something different which I really admire and this is generally heartfelt and it will moved you, the visual and the set pieces are amazing and this is pure escapism and this is certainly entertaining.

  1. The only one that I have seen of these selections is the Spiderman one and I agree it was very good, certainly better than I expected it to be.
