Re: The Hustle

Wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be. Yes, it's not the film of the century, far from that, but it's a good enough one. I've honestly seen far worse.

Re: Aladdin

I was a bit skeptic at first when I saw the trailers, especially as I'm not sure why Disney wants to remake all their great animated films (I mean a part for the money, obviously!), so I went to see it without much expectations... and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised! I had a good time wat...

Re: Godzilla King of the Monsters

I wasn't aware this movie was a sequel - I went to see it more because I had nothing better to do on Saturday and it was a good occasion to use my Odeon card - so I was a bit lost at first, but I guess the film is ok overall if one likes those kind of movies...

Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Went to see it last Sunday. Wasn't impressed by the initial trailers to be honest, but thought I would give it a try anyway, and I'm happy I did. It's a very nice family movie, with a reasonable plot and a good ending (I was not fully expecting it to happen that way, though I had some suspicions by ...

Re: Avengers Endgame

Saw it in IMAX at the BFI, really worth it, I liked the way they closed up this first Avengers era. A bit disappointed over Black Widow, but overall it was nicely made. And the final battle was epic!

Re: Tolkien

Went to see it on Monday. Quite liked it, it was a very nice movie, not overly complicated, and well filmed. I'm curious to know how much was "fact" and how much was fiction, but that's simply because I don't know Tolkien and his work well enough.

Re: Red Joan

Went to see it yesterday, I quite liked the story, though I must agree with some of you that it would have been better as a TV movie or short series. The acting was good enough, but I didn't feel the Cold War atmosphere the main character was so prompt to talk about every time she was questioned by ...

Re: On the Basis of Sex

Really liked the cast, didn't know the original story so can't really comment on how accurate the movie was, but overall it was a very nice watch.

Re: Shazam

Not a big DC fan to be honest, so to me this movie was exactly what I was expecting it to be from its trailer: not bad, but nothing wow either.

Re: Captain Marvel

Had a lot of fun watching this movie. I’m not a Marvel fan, so to speak, but I’ve seen most of the movies (except for Hulk), and while some were meh (like the last 2 avengers for example), I enjoyed this one and can’t wait to see her in the next avengers!
