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!

Life Itself: Film Review

I love Dan Fogelman‘s TV creation, the emotional family drama This Is Us. Many people (particularly in the UK) have criticised it for being too sentimental but I love the story and characters and how moving it is. I never noticed how sappy it was watching an episode a week, but Fogelman’s love of the sentimental tearjerker was blindly obvious with Life Itself, which he wrote and directed.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Film Review

For The Force Awakens, my excitement was off the charts and I thought I could burst with anticipation and when I saw it, I loved it 100%, glossing over its flaws because I was so happy it was back and gave me what I wanted. With The Last Jedi, I just didn’t have that same level and because of this, I cast a more critical eye, even though I’m sure it gives fans exactly what they want.

Suburbicon: Film Review

Suburbicon

I felt confident about Suburbicon – what with it being directed by George Clooney and starring Matt Damon and Julianne Moore – until the bad reviews came out following its premiere at the Venice Film Festival. I didn’t let that faze me as I wanted it to be good and I went in full of hope – and came away miffed about the mixed bag I had witnessed.

All I knew about The Promise was that Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale were in it, and I was sold, so I had no idea I was in for an intense war epic about the Armenian Genocide. The story was fascinating in a horrifying way but something was off – I should have been in tears and breaking my heart, but I was unmoved.
