12 Strong Movie Review
Overcoming a different language and culture shock was only the start of the transitional woes faced by these solders. They had to quickly adapt to a way of life and harsh environment that was unlike anything that had experienced before. They were also tremendously out numbered by the Taliban and their sympathisers.
The movie plays out in somewhat standard war scenario form where they rise to the occasion and show both great bravery but also adaptive skills. Where ...

The Post Movie Review
Tom Hanks has never been better and his visually advancing age and gruff vocal delivery helps one to see him as less of a nice guy and more as a down and dirty fighter. There are great performances everywhere, though. Even the sadly under-utilised Sarah Paulson has a short but very impactful monologue that gives the film even more purpose to the slowly awakening world of women’s rightful place in society. It also highlights Spielberg’s not so hidden agenda.
Darkest Hour Movie Review
Churchill is also one of the most discussed and over examined people of the twentieth century. Many of his idiosyncrasies have also become as famous as him, so the fact that Gary Oldman is so riveting and cliche free as the British Bulldog is testament to the amazing level of craft and acting skill he brings to the role. Ben Mendelsohn is also fantastic as King George VI
The film focuses on the period when he was first selected as PM and one of his first tasks was ...

The Disaster Artist Movie Review
Now using one of the most unintentionally funny films of all time as fodder for a film about a film has yielded comic gold. James Franco nails the role of The Room’s creator Tommy Wiseau (minus the middle age creepiness) and has never been more fearless or funny. It’s also a family affair and features his brother Dave as a co-lead actor.
The Room was beyond bad and feels as if it was alien in origin while The Disaster Artist feels Hollywood through and through. From its ...

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. ...
