Film Reviews – July 2020

I don’t often review films because they nearly always leave me feeling underwhelmed (unless of course it’s The Lord of the Rings, Matrix, Terminator etc etc).

But I have to mention Captain Fantastic– I haven’t laughed so much for years! It’s very thought provoking and has Viggo Mortensen in it. I really enjoyed the way the children were being brought up – very hands on and survival based. It’s a kind of antidote to the usual sickenly cutesy kids films out there.

I also really enjoyed Source Code with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role. It’s not preachy, but raises serious moral and ethical issues, in an amazing time paradox plot! The ending is NOT what you would expect!

And Lucy is another film that is worth watching, with Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman in it. I enjoyed the character change of the protagonist and the basis of the plot is very thought provoking.

Have you seen any of these films? What did you think of them?

PS You’ll never guess what? I managed to get my book cover for The Butterfly Tree & Other Stories into another Book Cover Award over at Alternative Read. If you have a mo, please consider voting for me! Thank you! The deadline is 31st July 2020.

    Source Code is quite entertaining as it is thought provoking. Haven’t seen the other two. 🙂

    Haven’t seen two of the three but I agree with you on Source Code. One of my all time favorite endings.

    Really enjoyed Captain Fantastic and how the home bred children supposedly had more knowledge than the learned ones, but just couldn’t fit into the society with their quirks. Very funny movie!
