Pixar have made a Dreamworks film

(Edit) 01/07/2020

Pixar have made some of the most near-perfect films of our generation.

But this is just ... OK. It's the sort of by-the-numbers Pixar copies that Dreamworks make. It's not actually "bad", but (for Pixar) it's embaressing.

Life in the War: Part 1: The Gathering Storm

Great footage

(Edit) 07/06/2019

The footage they've licensed (as I understand) from the BFI is very, VERY good.

You normally see the same few clips on TV programmes, but I had seen very little of the stuff here. It was new to me, and very interesting.

However, the script/voiceover is fairly basic and non insightful.

Working the Land: The Bygone Age of Farming

Great footage, voice over not so much

(Edit) 20/05/2019

The footage is really, REALLY good. I've watched a lot of re-enactor type content, especially the Victorian Farm/Green valley series.

But it's simply a joy to see people doing tasks who can REALLY do them. The seed broadcaster was a wonder to behold (yes, I'm a nerd).

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Mechanical

(Edit) 14/01/2019

This feels like some poor script writer was given a bullet point list

* becomes a pilot

* meets Chewbacca

* acquires the Millenium Falcon

* does the Kessel run in 12 parsecs (which is a unit of LENGTH not time, btw)

And simply joined the dots. The 30 second long high point was how they introduced Chewbacca.

One for completists only.

Blade Runner 2049

Would look a good film - unless you compare it to the original

(Edit) 16/04/2018

Lesser than the original in almost every regard - music not so good, imagery less impressive, plot more obvious.
