10.What We Did On Our Holiday
A family of five is off to Granddad’s big 75th birthday party at an uncle’s estate in rural Scotland. The parents are separated and hope their three kids won’t mention it. The kids love, can talk with, and will do anything for, Granddad. I really wanted to liked it and it is well casted but this film is like an extended one-off program for Christmas, the characters is hard to like and it isn’t funny whatsoever and it got an all-British cast which is reminded me of a sitcom that just doesn’t work at all.
Two lighthouse keepers try to maintain their sanity while living on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s. This film might look attractive and really different which I really admire about but this is like a very weird Twilight Zone and it is so weird with a very peculiar ending, the pacing is completely wrong and you just waited to see something happen or a scary moment, it meant to be psychological but you ended up really hating this film.
A young woman discovers her destiny as an heiress of intergalactic nobility and must fight to protect the inhabitants of Earth from an ancient and destructive industry. The people who made The Matrix and it by The Wachowski Brothers, they are different and fresh and them famous for science fiction type of film, but this one is the weakest one as there is no story and too much visual involved, it like a rollercoaster once it finished you won’t remember it.
7.Sonic The Hedgehog
After discovering a small, blue, fast hedgehog, a small – town police officer must help him defeat an evil genius who wants to do experiment on him. Well it is certainly colourful but it is like an annoying videogame that get stuck and you can’t stop it, it just too much action and SFX/CGI overload with an average story that not really suitable for youngsters. Why on earth Jim Carrey say yes to this as I normally really like him and he just wasted in this film.
6.The Railway Man
A former British Army officer, who was tortured as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labour camp during World War II, discovers that the man responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and sets out to confront him. Firstly don’t killed off the most interesting character in the film as Stellan Skarsgard is silently good, overall Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Jeremy Irvine really trying their hardest to lift this film up, despite this film is too uneven.
5.Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
In the bleak days of the Cold War, espionage veteran George Smiley is forced from semi – retirement to uncover a Soviet Agent within M16. Some people might disagree with me and some will agree with me hopefully but despite it has got a good cast I found this too overcomplicated with twist after twist and losing some momentum, it is so frustrating to watched and it got potential to be amazing but by the end you just scratching your head wondering what just happen.
After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and his son come across a little girl in the freezing cold. At first reluctant to shelter the girl, Osamu’s wife agrees to take care of her after learning of the hardships she faces. I’m normally really into foreign language and indie type of film so I thought it would be moving and touching in a coming-of-age film, once I watched all of it I don’t feel anything at all and it turn to be a comedy crime film, as it should be a beautiful coming of age film as it struggle what kind of genre.
3.Mrs Lowry & Son
A portrait of the artist L.S. Lowry and the relationship with his mother, who tries to dissuade him from pursuing his passion. Definitely one of the most disappointing film ever as this meant to be amazing and both of them Timothy Spall and Vanessa Redgrave really trying their best, the whole film in whole is rather short and it not insightful enough and that what made this film a massive let down.
An in – depth look at the prison system in the United States and how it reveals the nation’s history of racial inequality. Once I started to get into documentaries I saw this on Netflix and I thought it going to be powerful and I really like the subject matter, it might be harrowing for some people but I personally think this isn’t the best documentaries, I only found the archive aspect really interesting but it keep being back and fourth and it getting to much and it became unfocused.
In the late 1960s/early 1970s, a San Francisco cartoonist becomes an amateur detective obsessed with tracking down the Zodiac Killer, an unidentified individual who terrorizes Northern California with a killing spree. On paper this could have been amazing with tense, suspense, thrilling and unpredictable with well known star, it ended up of being too predictable and trying to overcomplicated, the film certainly dragging with a long runtime and it losing my interest.
