Toy Story 4 – 5/5 stars
Toy Story 4 meets all expectations and more. I went to see this at a late evening showing on the opening night and the cinema was packed full of adults. As the credit rolls, there was a round of applause from the audience. The Toy Story franchise has always appealed to all ages and many cinema goers have grown up with the characters. The right balance of humour and emotion and an excellent storyline which guarantee to make this movie a box office smash.
Yesterday – 3/5 stars
In a year in which we have seen many movies featuring from famous British musicians (Queen, Elton John,) The Beatles get their own treatment. A low budget movie starring Himesh Patel (Eastenders) and directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and written by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral.) Enjoyable but sometimes a little predicable, with a great cameo by Ed Sheeran, make it a perfectly acceptable way to spend 2 hours with a musical score that will be familiar to all.
Spider-Man: Far From Home – 4/5 stars
As I alluded to in last month’s article, Marvel has knocked out of the park again with yet another great Spider-Man movie set against a European backdrop. Comic book fans will not be disappointed with hints of what is to come for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 4/5
Midsommar – 4/5 stars
A horror movie with a unique script, I came out of the movie questioning what I just saw, thought provoking, scary and hilarious (which i didn’t expect) A great example of an independently produced horror film on a small budget. Certainly worth a watch on the big screen or on the small screen if you miss it in the cinema. 4/5
