Re: Your Sky Movies reviews and ratings

I was nervous about watching this as didn’t want to be disappointed by a scary film yet again. I wasn’t disappointed it was full of suspense and intrigue. Quite scary and pleased the writer/director won an Oscar -well deserved. 4/5

The Intern is five star gentle watch, starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway who are both absolutely superb. Although not exactly a romcom it does fall broadly into that category and I did laugh out loud several times but possibly that's because I really understood what it's like to be old!

 

If I had been asked to name the director without knowing who it was I would have said the late and sadly missed Nora Ephron. So if you like her films you won't be disappointed in this lovely sweet film.

Enjoyable film from De Niro & Hathaway.

                                       READY PLAYER ONE

 

  Saw this on its premiere release date last Wednesday night on a huge screen in 3D & what a blast it was. The first 20 minutes were insane & showed that 3D isn't as dead as some people like to think. The whole film is Spielberg having as much fun as he can & passing that fun on to us. 

  I read the book last year & really enjoyed it & knew then that Steven Spielberg was on directing duties, so looked forward to the film. He's said it's the third most difficult film he's ever made ( after Jaws & Schindler's List ) & took 3 years to complete it. In the time it has been in post-production he went on to make The Post which came out before RPO.

  There's plenty of easter eggs to be looking out for in all the 1980's & onwards references, but a lot are blink-&-you'll-miss-them, so you may need to wait for the Blu-ray/DVD release for that. 

  There are certainly differences between the book & the film ( aren't there always? ) but the author, Ernest Cline co-wrote the screenplay & was happy with any alterations made. Purists & geeks may not like it, but so what. My gf hadn't read the book & tbh, wasn't sure she was going to like the film, but she loved it, too.

  I'm deliberately not writing a synopsis here, you can find that easily enough elsewhere. All I'm saying is go & see it on the biggest screen you can find & in 3D if you like that medium. 

  By the way, if you like the really cool poster below, do an image search for Ready Player One posters for more remade film posters, they're very good & kinda fun.

                         RAMPAGE

  It may only be early Spring, but the Summer Blockbuster season has arrived early to our cinemas with Rampage, a monster of a movie in every way & it's great fun. It is directed by Brad Peyton who gave us San Andreas, which starred Dwayne Johnson who is also the star of Rampage, along with George, an albino gorilla. It is based on a video game, but don't let that put you off. 

  It is decent enough setting up the story, but when all the creatures appear it ramps up quite a few levels & is pure mayhem from then on. There were three occasions when a creature roared & it wasn't only my seat that shook, the whole room shook. Great CGI work too.

  I have to say I'm quite surprised how much I've enjoyed Dwayne Johnson's recent films, San Andreas, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle & now Rampage. Okay, they aren't likely to bother the Oscars, but he does know how to make a big, fun, popcorn movie where you don't have to think too much & can simply sit back & enjoy what's going on. So, if that's what you like to do now & again, Rampage is for you. I know I say this a lot, but this really does need to be seen on a big screen, so catch it now.

Re: Your Sky Movies reviews and ratings

I watched a recent release called Braven yesterday having seen it rated 4.5 stars by Sky - you are basically saying this is an excellent film but not quite one of the best ever made. Have you ever seen this film? It is truly appalling and definitely one of the worst films i have ever seen - you really need to change the rating if you want them to carry any credibility at all.

Most films are subjective not a film I would watch but Rotten Tomatoes give it a 71% rating and Google users an 88%

GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN

 

After leaving London for the English countryside, writer A.A. Milne starts to spin fanciful yarns about his son's growing collection of stuffed animals. These stories form the basis for "Winnie-the-Pooh" and "The House at Pooh Corner," published respectively in 1926 and 1928. Milne and his family soon become swept up in the instant success of the books, while the enchanting tales bring hope and comfort to the rest of postwar England.

 

This is currently running on Sky Cinema in SD/HD/UHD. I found this to be a very heartfelt story about A.A. Milne and his family. I give this a 5/5. It's well worth watching with the entire family.

Re: The Predator

We were absolutely amazed at how bad The Predator was.  We have enjoyed most of the previous  films in the 'Predator'  franchise, but not this one.  In order for this type of film to succeed, the story has to be acted in a serious way so that  the viewer's sympathy is with 'the good guy' even if the story leaves a lot to be desired.  There is so much to criticise but we don't intend to do a full critique of the film here.  We could not believe how bad the script was and in common with most friends who have seen it, early on in the film realised we didn't care who lived and who died.  We couldn't bring ourselves to watch it to the end.  If it had already  passed into Sky Cinema as a premiere, it wouldn't have annoyed us so much, but we actually paid for it!
