A Simple Favour is Gone Girls friendly cousin. Our classy blonde and brunette duo are both so invigorating in this mystery-comedy that you can’t afford to take your eyes off of the screen! Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively fill the plot ever so graciously with their pointed inflections and snappy gestures. Lively carries this sexy mysteriousness throughout the film making it look effortless while Kendrick twirls lines of dialogue with a lilt. The timing of the flashbacks are done well, filling in the characters backstories just a little bit at a time. What seems like a simple life unfolds into a plethora of mystery. This film really let its hair down in all aspects.
Get ready for the ultimate cheat day as The Chocolate & Coffee Show celebrates its fifth birthday.
There were some scenes which were rich in atmosphere but the whole film was widowed of new ideas on how to scare an audience. The sound effects sound cheap and tacky much like some of the visual effects they used. The obviousness of the smoke machine couldn’t be any more apparent. This film got my hopes up too high. The amount of times you think that something exhilarating would happen, you would be let down, yet again. The Nun is like being stuck in a funky club, where the DJ keeps playing the same tune over and over again.
The movie has no sense of boundaries and not in a good way. Mile 22 is an overly frantic movie with very few genuinely exciting scenes of visceral violence. The number of times that you wished the camera would have held still for a second longer so that you could actually see the shots clearly are one too many.
Childhood favourite, Winnie-the-Pooh and his clan in the Hundred Acre Wood are brought to life in the remarkable Christopher Robin movie. The take on the children’s-book series is refreshing while evoking sweet and bitter tones at the appropriate times. It makes you wonder why you ever wanted to grow up. The most pleasing aspect of this film is how visually appealing it looks at all times. Watching Pooh’s innocence irritate Christopher (voiced by Jim Cummings) is entertaining and becomes meaningful when you can see that it redeems Christopher. Embedded within the story line are relatable events such as when Madeline undertakes a courageous journey in order to gain her father’s attention.
