The Boxtrolls

Pointless trash

(Edit) 19/03/2019

I am a big fan of LAIKA films and this was the only one I still had to watch from the company. I almost wish I hadn't. This film is not up to par with the rest of the studios offerings. What we have here is a painfully boring, unimaginative film that is slow and lacking seriously in action, comedy or emotional beats. The story itself is basic and the boxtrolls themselves are unfunny, lacking in heart and are a serious misoppertunity. The animation paired with the voiceover is distractingly poor. Not much about this film works. By the time I got to the last half an hour I just started fast forwarding through it because I just wanted it to end. Definitely don't waste your time on this one.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Brilliant film

(Edit) 17/03/2019

By the end of this movie I felt so inspired by the life of Freddie Mercury and Rami Malek does an incredible job at bringing him to life on the screen. Sadly, the movie bends the truth and from what I've read online is very innacurate. While I believe the film could have been just as good had they been a bit truer to life it's still a fantastic movie.

Call Me by Your Name

A masterpiece

(Edit) 17/03/2019

This film is undoubtedly a modern classic. It's an incredibly shot film that portrays love in such a visceral and honest way. It feels like poetry brought to life on the screen. Unlike gay films that focus heavily on sex, this film is not sexually explicit and prefers to take you on an emotional journey of a young man falling in love. In doing so it masterfully elicits emotion from the audience through incredible direction and performances. By the end of the movie I thought to myself - it's films like this that make me love film. It is nothing short of a masterpiece.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Not great

(Edit) 08/03/2019

I enjoyed the first 2 installments and even excused the 2nds weird disjointed tone but this one was just one action set piece after the next. It felt like it dragged on and what actually worked best about the film were the character moments and some of the big moral questions. If these elements were explored more instead of just jumping from one action point to the next then it would have been a much better film. I'd still reccomeded watching if you enjoyed the first 2 to see the conclusion.
