Triple Frontier: Netflix Film Review

I must admit I’m still not completely on top of Netflix film releases but I took notice of Triple Frontier because of the talent onboard, with Margin Call and A Most Violent Year‘s J.C. Chandor up front as director and co-writer, along with Zero Dark Thirty’s Mark Boal, and a cast which includes Ben Affleck and Oscar Isaac. That’s an impressive line-up!

Justice League: Film Review

I was not a fan of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice so I thought Justice League would be just as rubbish, especially after the reviews came out and they were really bad. My expectations were incredibly low and I think that helped because I actually thought it was fine.

It’s the start of November, which means it’s movie preview time! We’re slowly getting into awards season, with a lot of London Film Festival favourites hitting general release, but that doesn’t mean the blockbusters have disappeared. Here’s my recommendations for November:

Live By Night: Film Review

live-by

Ben Affleck not only acts in Live By Night but he also directed and produced it and wrote the screenplay. That is an unreal amount of work and while he has done well in the past – Argo springs to mind – it feels like he’s taken on too much here and spread himself too thin. He doesn’t really excel in any of the main roles and that results in an average gangster drama.

The Accountant: Film Review

The Accountant

The Accountant intrigued me and I really didn’t know what to expect. It sounds lame and you don’t really think a movie about an accountant would be interesting, but it is, but the title sells it short. I just thought it would be a silly action film but it’s not that either. There was far more to it than I expected.

I haven’t been to a London premiere this exciting and spectacular in ages and it couldn’t have come at a better time – Suicide Squad really needed a big event like this to lift fans’ spirits following the critical mauling the film has received and the cast made sure it was a lot of fun – and things got even crazier when the Justice League showed up announced! AMAZING!
