A good movie

Posted : 2 years, 9 months ago on 17 July 2015 08:02 (A review of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie)

It's been years since I first saw 'The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie', about 3 months ago, I watched the sequel 'Sponge Out Of Water', at the cinema. I decided to re-watch this one and make my mind up.

I still think it's a good movie, just like the last time I saw it, I like the animation, the humour is pretty intelligent, the plot is decent and the guest appearances (particularly David Hasselhoff) are fun to watch. I like 'SpongeBob SquarePants' as a TV show, and as a movie!

A good movie

Posted : 2 years, 9 months ago on 17 July 2015 02:20 (A review of Bambi)

'Bambi' is one of Disney's most famous films and the fifth animated Disney classic. It is now considered to be one of the greatest animated films ever. Personally, I think it is far from being one of the best animated films ever, but I still enjoyed it.

'Bambi' features some amazing music and emotional scenes, but I found the plot and script to be sort of weak. It shows animals' way of surviving and avoiding humans, but the script is just not so intelligent. This is where the film falls behind, this film is kinda lucky that the weak script is buried underneath good animation, music and scenes of emotion (which are actually part of the script).

A good movie

Posted : 2 years, 9 months ago on 12 July 2015 06:49 (A review of Jurassic World)

‘Jurassic World’ takes place 22 years after the events of ‘Jurassic Park’. I haven’t seen ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’ or ‘Jurassic Park III’, but this one is a good movie. It’s certainly not up there with the original ‘Jurassic Park’ but I still think it is worth seeing.

‘Jurassic World’ recycles the classic music from ‘Jurassic Park’, but also features some eye popping visual effects, some solid performances and some intense horror sequences. It’s probably much darker than ‘Jurassic Park’, which explains the 12A rating. Something to say about the fight sequences though is that while some of them are pretty scary and intense, some of them seem a bit weird, especially when the little dinosaurs fight the big dinosaur. Nevertheless, this film is good and has very few cons at all.

A great movie

Posted : 2 years, 9 months ago on 12 July 2015 08:56 (A review of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi)

‘Return of the Jedi’ brings the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy to an end, and just like the first two films, it is a great movie. It’s one of those rare second sequels that really works, like ‘Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King’ or ‘Toy Story 3’.

‘Return of the Jedi’ isn’t as good as ‘A New Hope’ or ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, but it is still a work of cinematic art, thanks to its amazing fight sequences, cutting edge effects, great performances and moving sequences.

A very good movie

Posted : 2 years, 10 months ago on 21 June 2015 06:16 (A review of Rush)

'Rush' is a very entertaining film. Of course it competes in the very good films such as 'The Dark Knight Rises' and comes somewhat close to being a great movie. It features some amazing racing, direction by Ron Howard and acting by Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl! While it is at times disturbing (particularly as it's based on real life events), at other times, it's great to look at and it's a very good film!

A disappointing movie

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 30 May 2015 02:12 (A review of World War Z)

Brad Pitt plays Gerry, a man who joins an army when humanity starts to end, by killing the dead people in ‘World War Z’. ‘World War Z’ is enjoyable, and yet I was quite bored through most of it.

Brad Pitt isn’t bad in the lead role, but his performance isn’t quite enough to make this film good, it’s far from being a bad movie, but somehow, I only really liked the plane crash scene and the zombie in lab scene, the rest wasn’t entirely interesting and it’s thanks to these scenes that this film became better than mediocre. I expected more from this film and in the end, I didn’t think it was good, just plain average.

A great movie

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 17 May 2015 04:31 (A review of Up in the Air)

‘Up In The Air’ is a great movie. The film stars George Clooney as corporate downsizer Ryan Bingham, who meets people when travelling and makes connections. The film features some funny intelligent plotting, some great connections and great acting by Clooney and his fellow co-stars Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick and Jason Bateman. Jason Reitman (director of ‘Juno’) directs this masterpiece smoothly, like he did with ‘Juno’. The cinematography is also brilliant!

My favourite sequel

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 15 May 2015 04:44 (A review of The Godfather: Part II)

‘The Godfather: Part II’ continues the story of ‘The Godfather’ and features Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) in the lead role, as opposed to the first film in which his father Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) was the main character. Pacino continues the role of Michael and gives a fantastic performance, Brando stole the show in the first film, his absence in this film probably gave the best performance to Pacino.

This is a great movie, it’s full of iconic, memorable scenes and murders, it’s also got complicated but interesting different moments in time, serving as both a sequel and a prequel to ‘The Godfather’. I don’t like it as much as the first, but I barely enjoy the first one more, and they’re both among my favourite films! This is really enjoyable like the first one, and probably the best sequel of all time!

A brilliant drama with important messages

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 10 May 2015 08:26 (A review of Boyhood)

Presumably a lot of people will have heard of 'Boyhood' shortly before they started filming it in 2002. Since then, they started shooting it up until 2013. Richard Linklater had a goal to create a film about growing up, and here he achieved it brilliantly! Mason Evans Jr. goes from age 6 to age 18 and (due to the film being shot over 11 years) is always played by Ellar Coltrane, who gives a brilliant performance!

'Boyhood' is a brilliant drama with important messages, it features serious dialogue and teaches important lessons about parenting and growing up! Richard Linklater directs it intelligently, his script is serious and brilliantly written! The supporting cast including Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke are all fantastic! The film is frequently intense and features some intense realism of ageing! A brilliant film!

Charming, though not Richard Curtis' best

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 4 May 2015 03:20 (A review of About Time)

This is a pretty good romantic comedy, it's charming, though not Richard Curtis' best! The plot is kind of nice, but the script has a couple of plot holes about the rules of the time travel! Richard Curtis' script and direction are decent though and the film features some good acting! It's a good movie though I prefer 'Four Weddings & A Funeral' and 'Love Actually'
