Re: Emma (2020)

Big Austen fan myself, I knew from the trailer this movie would just be a huge joke - wasn’t wrong at all on that!
Saw it last Sunday, and thankfully didn’t p*y for it, otherwise it’s clear I would have waited to see it on TV or VOD platforms.

Re: Little women

Very nice film for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Drags a bit a times but whole cast is pretty on point overall.

Re: 1917

Saw it at the World Premiere and Charity Gala in December. Very immersive indeed. I'm not a big fan of war movies but I have to admit that it certainly kept my attention and heart rate level up the whole time.

Re: A Beautiful day in the neighbourhood

Saw it during the BFI LFF, it was a very nice film, quite touching at times, a bit weird during others. Tom Hanks has always been a strong selling point for me so that might be why I had a good time.

Re: Star Wars : Rise of Skywalker

Liked it, but I'm not a big SW fan to begin with. Nice way of closing this chapter though...

Re: Dolittle

I personally read no reviews before seeing the movie and really enjoyed it! Is it a masterpiece? No, but I found it to be good fun, RDJ was completely bonkers, and the overall voices casting was perfect in my opinion, especially on Emma Thompson's part.

Re: Frozen 2

Saw a preview of this at the BFI. Really enjoyed it, though I understand why some people don't. It's a lot "darker" than the first one for sure, more "mature" in a way, which I appreciated. I loved the first one, and wasn't disappointed by this sequel, unlike other Disney sequels. I was surprised to...

Re: Le Mans '66

Quite like the story, even though I thought it was quite slow and long for the most part. A decent film to watch though, and a very good casting as well, but it was not captivating enough to stop me from going to the toilets halfway through, something I never do at the cinema unless I'm very bored.

Re: Jumanji: next level

Saw it at an early screening at Odeon... thought it was long, slow, and pretty boring. Preferred the first one by far, and really hoping they don't make a 3rd, though based on the ending it's very likely they will :(

Re: Knives Out

Saw this film during it's premiere screening at the BFI LFF, and while the story was a bit slow to start with, I enjoyed every second of it! I love a good whodunnit, and I thought this one didn't disappoint :D
