A page to track the films I’ve watched from 1 January 2020 onwards. If there is a more in-depth review i will post a link to this.
- Escape Plan 3: Extractors watched 3 January 2020. Rating 3/5. I didn’t watch the first in this series but accidentally watched the second as hubby put it on while i was reading. The third was OK, nothing earth shattering and a little lame in places.
- Bombshell watched 10 January 2020. Rating 4/5. The actors in this film were extremely well cast and the story was well told. It wasn’t full of action but it was a good film and worth while watching. I like films that are based on true stories as it gives you an insight into real life that you may not have otherwise been aware of.
- 1917 watched 18 January 2020. Rating 5/5. This film was a masterpiece and one of the best i’ve watched in a long time. The story wasn’t ground breaking but the cinematography was epic. I often play with my phone while watching TV and films but for almost 2 hours, it lay untouched as this film demanded all of your attention for every single minute. I thought it would make me cry but this didn’t happen until the film had finished and i saw the dedication from Sam Mendes. When i found out he also wrote the film, it completely got me that he wrote this film for his grandfather and the story came from real life.
- Hustlers watched 25 January 2020. Rating 3.5/5. Another film inspired by true events and this one was really good. Jennifer Lopez is totally my woman crush and she was fabulous in this film. Yes, it is a film about exotic dancers and hustling but the characters felt genuine and real. Again very little phone playing during this film (a true sign of a good film).
