The Mountain Between Us Movie Review
The two leads, Idris Elba and Kate Winslet are both great actors but here their chemistry never really gels. Even the moments of adversity they overcome feel forced and more than a little unauthentic.
The set up is believable and the third lead, the terrain, is visually stunning and more than sufficient to sell the absolute isolation faced by the stranded couple. Elba and Winslet riff off each other at first and it’s these early scenes that are most enjoyable but the film soon falls ...

Victoria and Abdul Movie Review
Set in the late nineteen hundreds, director Stephen Frears (The Queen, High Fidelity) uses his actors as both visual and social symbols. Ms Dench’s face often fills the entire screen in extreme close up and both her expressive eyes and her lines of life really sell both her age and emotion. The actual Queen was in her eighties during this time in history.
Ali Faza (Furious 7, Bang Baaja Baaraat ) is perfectly cast as Abdul and he holds his own against the dame. ...
