Re: Aeronauts

Saw it during the BFI LFF. Really enjoyed it. Redmayne and Jones are a fantastic duo. I get it that some people would have preferred this story to be closer to the real thing, but I honestly didn't mind it at all as I didn't know the real story before going to see it... I loved the CGI, was on the e...

Re: Judy

While the casting is certainly great (my, my, Renee can sing!), I found the film very long.... some parts of it were so boring to me that I started to lose focus several times. Can't disagree on the sad film category, it was definitely heartbreaking to watch.

Re: Ad Astra

It was quite a long film for a very obvious ending.... Nothing much surprising, the plot is pretty thin and even the amazing CGI and other visual effects can't really save the day. I find it sad that such a good cast ended up in such a boring film.

Re: Downton Abbey movie

I followed the series from its beginning so I was very excited when they announced they would make a big screen movie out of it, and that pretty much all the actors where back « on duty ». Went to see it at the new Odeon Luxe Leicester Square screening room and we were not disappointed! The storylin...

Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Not much of a Tarantino fan, I admit, I liked the film as a whole but not enough for it to ever make it into my Top movies of all time. It was quite slow at times, which unfortunately explains why this movie was so long (for me, a film over 2h30 with barely any action until the end is a bore), but I...

Re: The Current War

Went to watch it on its release date (sorry for posting so late haha) and it was honestly exactly what I expected from the trailer: a very good cast in a very weak plot... I heard that some changes were made since its first screening 2 years ago at TIFF, and while I wasn’t part of the lucky few who ...

Re: Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw

I used to like F&F and 2F2F a lot, but never watch Tokyo Drift or the F&F that followed as I just wasn’t interested in their plots anymore (and frankly from their trailers they didn’t seem that different from each others). Still went to give this one a try, mostly because I had nothing better to do ...

Re: Lion King (2019)

Being a huge fan of the original animation, I wasn’t very impressed at first when Disney announced its plan to remake it, and when I saw the trailer I was even less enthusiastic. All that said, I still used the opportunity offered by my limitless card to see it for « free » and I have to admit now I...

Re: Spider-Man: Far From Home

Saw it last Saturday. I quite enjoyed it, even though I kind of knew how it would end from the trailer... the plot was very simple to figure out and the "baddy" not that difficult to guess. That said, I do have to admit that Mysterio's message in the end credit scenes left me a bit confused, I'm not...

Re: XMen - Dark Phoenix

As much as I liked "First Class", I can't say I was particularly impressed by the following films in this franchise, and this one was just like the last one for me: good enough, but not mind-blowing.
