Film Review: Captain Marvel
Better than other MCU films I’ve seen, and funny and touching in places, but still a bit pants. They are all the same… I give this a “meh” score of 6.0/10.0
Great fun, well cast. Seth Rogan and Charlize Theron work surprisingly well with each other. Laugh out loud funny at times, and always light-hearted, it is well written and well paced, and keeps you entertained the entire, madcap way through. A well deserved 8.5/10.0
As I watched this movie I couldn’t help but think this would be the Stephen King book adaptation that would be awesome, after so so many terrible films. This is one of my favourite Stephen King books. I know both Carrie’s were great, and The Shining, but generally Stephen King adaptations are terrible. So, there I was, sat there enjoying...
A movie of two halves: the first was tense, scary, paced well; the second half was a mad jumble of incoherent nonsense, as if the director got bored halfway through and abandoned the script. The contrast with his previous outing, Get Out, couldn’t be more clear. This is a poor follow-up, instantly forgettable. I give this movie 2.0/10.0
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Melissa McCarthy is excellent, and Richard E Grant is his usual larger than life self. A little bittersweet, and more about loneliness than I expected, extremely well paced and well written, with great supporting actors. I give this film 8.5/10.0
Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper are both great actors, and I have enjoyed almost all of their movies. Clint Eastwood is, well, Clint Eastwood, and that’s always a good thing. There is a great chemistry between the two of them, and they work a well written script to good effect. This is a well paced movie, bittersweet, and it reminds...
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It feels like a madcap art-house movie, every character is a caricature, every scene odd in some way, unsettling cinematography, and absolutely fantastic performances. Olivia Coleman absolutely deserved the awards she received for this film, and it’s just a shame that Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz weren’t similarly recognised. I give this film 9.0/10.0.
