Project Power: Netflix Film Review

Project Power

With high-profile names like Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt attached, I had extremely high hopes for Project Power and while it didn’t entirely deliver, it was still an entertaining ride.

My top 10 movies of 2017

A lot of people have been doing their end of year lists since the start of December, but I like to wait a little longer just in case there is a late entry – I thought The Greatest Showman might have made it (it didn’t) – so here are my top 10 films of 2017.

Baby Driver: Film Review

I am a huge fan of Edgar Wright‘s films but I wasn’t initially convinced about Baby Driver, I just wasn’t feeling the trailer, but I was very wrong and the movie is probably one of the few I’ve enjoyed unequivocally this year.

Annie: Film Review

1111746 Ð ANNIE

I have to admit, I am not familiar with the Broadway musical or the later film adaptations and my knowledge was limited to a basic understanding of the plot (because it changes in different versions) and classic tracks Tomorrow and It’s the Hard Knock Life. So while I can’t compare it to its predecessors, I can still say that it didn’t leave me with the happy, warm feeling musicals usually do.

Quvenzhane Wallis stars as Annie Bennett in this modern-day reboot as a foster child (not orphan!) living under the guardianship of Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). One day, mobile phone businessman and wannabe mayor Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) saves her from a potential car accident and when he sees it boosts his campaign ratings, he invites her to live with him temporarily. She is mainly looked after by his assistant Grace (Rose Byrne). His campaign advisor (Bobby Cannavale) begins to hatch a plan with Hannigan to reunite Annie with her ‘parents’, whether they are the real ones or not.

The movies you should be watching this month are….

St. Vincent

Critics have been raving about this film since it did the festival circuit earlier this year. Bill Murray is the unfriendly bum Vincent who befriends the boy next door and their unlikely friendship has a positive outcome on them both. I love Murray so definitely up for this. Released: 5th December

Horrible Bosses 2: Film Review

boss3

This is bigger, bolder and ruder than the original – but that doesn’t make it better. While it was enjoyable and pretty funny, it was too much and totally over the top. Producers clearly went for quantity over quality when it came to the jokes.

Films for November

Interstellar

I have been waiting for the release of this epic sci-fi movie for a long time and I am so ready to see this now. The plot is a closely guarded secret but we know that Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway embark on a space mission to save the human race from destructing Earth. I love everything Christopher Nolan does, I think he is a total genius, so I have very high hopes for this. Michael Caine and Jessica Chastain also star. Released: 7th November
