Disney's live action adaptation of the classic animated film Beauty and the Beast is packed with familiar actors and voices, and is as intricately decorated as the French palace of Versailles, but fails when it comes to everything else.
King Kong makes an epic return in this Apocalypse Now style rehash of the ancient movie monster. It's big, bold, and teeming with life and action adventure fun. For what it lacks in dialogue, it makes up for with goofy monster movie realness.
The highlight of the festival for me so far. A stunning portrayal of the lives of the elderly, both tragic and absolutely gorgeous.
One of the Oscar nominated documentary films for 2017 and currently screening at the One World Documentary Film Festival in Prague. Fire at Sea is a sensory feast. Careful attention to detail has been paid to every shot, and every shot tells its own story. It's lack of narration and soundtrack give it an element of extreme realism and objectivity that makes it a stand-out documentary of 2016.
Weiner is an extremely entertaining, and embarrassing, face-palming experience. It throws you right smack in the middle of the circus that is U.S. politics, and takes the 'fly on a wall' approach one step further. It's also teeming with dick jokes.
A strong start that does somewhat 'reinvent' the standard superhero genre film, but then falls victim to silly Hollywood cliches, just in case they want to do a spin-off or sequel in the near future. We were promised that it'd be different, gritty and more human, and it is ...for the first half.
Keanu Reeves is back on bloody excellent form for the much anticipated sequel to John Wick. An extremely entertaining and artsy action sequel from the crew behind The Matrix.
