Strings

Worth an hour for something so different

(Edit) 17/04/2018

really unusual film, very evocative but I kept getting taken out of the film by weird practical considerations about the world they created at various points in the plot. I don't normally experience that as I'm quite happy to go with the flow and immerse myself fully, but perhaps this happened because it is so unusual in that they acknowledge the strings as part of their life rather than just ignore them which would be the normal approach

I would recommend watching it though just because its so unusual - not sure it would keep the attention of young children (and the plot is a kind of revenge tragedy with Shakespearean tones....), but anyone interested in film or animation would find a lot to enjoy and think about here

Miss Sloane

one to watch

(Edit) 26/10/2017

loved it - strong cast, good story, interesting developments, avoided trite motives for characters - kept me glued

Life

The Thing crossed with Gravity

(Edit) 17/10/2017

I love most science fiction and I liked that this attempted to replicate something of the spectacle and realism of gravity (but falls short) and something of the kind of claustrophobic tension of something unknown without motive that technology cannot help you with (think 'the thing' lite).

This cast are good and generally interesting to watch in most things. Whilst it didn't knock it out of the park creatively its well put together and entertaining with the odd memorable moment. I've suggested watching it to others with the caveat its not going to change their lives - a good Friday night film.
