The Current War

Interesting film if you understand the significant difference between AC and DC, otherwise it's just electricity and electricity. The two main characters were played well.

Re: Fisherman's Friends

I saw it today and thought it was very good; true or not, the acting was sympathetic to the characters and it was refreshing not to see the same 'plastic moulded' actors and actresses, but ones that didn't seem to be acting. Very real, and definitely recommend.

The Aftermath

Film about the immediate post-war situation in German city days after the allied victory in WWII. Keira Knightley baring her teeth again as a not-so-hero heroine, but confused, neglected wife of busy army chief, and with a guilt complex about death of young son by German bomb. Over-acts in parts but...

Re: Fighting with my Family

Saw this yesterday and it was surprisingly engaging and in parts hilarious. A true story first made into a documentary and later, this film. Shows ordinary folk with interesting background, characters and emotions.

Re: Green Book

Surprised by the well researched content of this film. The contrast between the two main characters was particularly well played out. I wonder what proportion of the audience were aware of the deep seated prejudices that existed and still exist in the southern states. I think it should have had a da...

Re: Instant Family

Good general viewing film, nothing particularly memorable. The prospective parents I thought were over-acting rather frequently; the best performance was the teenage girl adoptee. Film full of humour and recounts well the anguish of parents who adopt.

Re: Alita: Battle Angel

Very clever combination of computer game character animation, graphics and real actors. The plot is of a crazy, lawless, split society where humans and mutant cyborgs cohabit the same space. The eventual role in which Alita excels is an oddly disappointing one.

The first free film for me was 'Collette' and I enjoyed it very much, thanks to FMUK. Actress Keira Knightley very good performance. I study English for a long time and find i...
