Hurricane

Good but not very good

(Edit) 12/06/2020

Many people in the UK born after WW2 don't know about the role Polish airmen and soldiers played in defeating the Nazis. This film tries to correct that by focussing on the brave airmen. However the Brits were portrayed as being a bit too racist at times and the Poles were portrayed as being too rowdy and rebellious, in this film. The overall story and effects were  good though. Being born of Polish refugee parents I know the Poles took their roles seriously, but they knew how to have a good time and maintain their culture, and integrate into life in the UK. Many didn't want to return to a Poland ruled by the Soviets.

However many felt betrayed by the agreements made at the Yalta conference, including not being part of the victory parade, as depicted in this film. 

Let's not forget all the other soldiers, sailors and airmen from other countries who fought on our side too. We won because we worked together.

A Star Is Born

Ok film but overrated

(Edit) 07/04/2020

Lady Gaga did well with her acting and singing, Bradley Cooper’s acting however wasn’t very good and it was often difficult to understand what he was saying, another male actor was also difficult to understand. There were some good songs though.

Additionally the sound levels on the DVD were not consistent, the speech was too quiet and the music too loud.

I’m glad I didn’t pay to go and see this film at the cinema.

The Shape of Water

Simple story with a message

(Edit) 01/03/2019

This film is basically about love vs. prejudice. There is far too much of the latter in the world.

Some reviewers I think are being too cerebral about this film, it’s just a fantasy.

The Death of Stalin

Disappointed

(Edit) 13/02/2019

I was looking forward to seeing this film but it is too satirical and not very funny, in fact I hardly laughed. Not worth watching.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Promising start

(Edit) 13/02/2019

This film starts well and gets very interesting but then fails at the end with no real ending, is there a sequel pending?
