Day 8 – What was the last film I saw at the cinema?

The last film at saw at the cinema was called ‘Bad Neighbours’. I went with my boyfriend and we both found it hilarious. The main actors in it are Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Dave Franco and Rose Byrne. It is a comedy about a married couple with a baby who are living a normal, peaceful life until a college frat house move in next door to them. The film showcases the pranks of childish revenge they cast against each other. We both found the film really funny but I think it is the type of film where you only watch it once. Being a uni/college student myself I could relate to the banter and the circumstances they were in. Although it has had mixed reviews I thought it overall was a decent film that made me laugh.

The next films that I am going to see at the cinema will be 22 Jump Street and The Fault in our Stars. 🙂

A Review of the Film ‘Frozen’

With all the hype surrounding this new Disney film I wanted to see if it was as good as everybody was making it out to be. It definitely was! Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, Frozen did not disappoint. The plot revolves around Queen Elsa who possesses a magical power where anything she touches has the ability to become frozen. The movie is about her overcoming this with trials and tribulations along the way. Her sister, Princess Anna as well as Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and a talking snowman named Olaf, travel to try and find her and to stop the eternal winter which surrounds them. This comedy and adventure has a strong cast of  Kristen BellIdina MenzelJonathan GroffJosh Gad, and Santino Fontana. The music in this movie is beautiful and some of the songs are even currently in the UK Top 40, such as ‘Let it Go’ which pop princess Demi Lovato has recently covered. Although this movie is aimed at children, adults would enjoy it also as it is a fun-filled adventure perfect for families. Frozen ultimately leaves a positive message that you can overcome problems you have if you have faith and you shouldn’t care what anybody else thinks, which children can take away with them. It reminded me a lot of the film Tangled with Disney’s modern animation. Overall, this film is really engaging and enchanting and you should definitely give it a watch! (That is if you haven’t already!)

A Review of the Film ‘That Awkward Moment’

that

I went to see ‘That Awkward Moment’ with one of my best friends and honestly it is hilarious. There were times in the cinema where everyone was laughing out loud. I was not expecting it to be that good as the trailer does not really do it justice at all.

The film, set in New York is about three best guy friends who are afraid of the ‘so…?’ question (the so-where-is-this-relationship-heading-question). They make a pact not to fall in love, however they all do. Keeping it a secret from the other two is the challenge however. It is classed in the genre of Romantic Comedy however it is not your typical Bridget Jones Rom Com. It has a strong cast of  Zac Efron, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Imogen Poots, Mackenzie Davis, and Jessica Lucas who really work well together. The banter and bromance in the film between the friends is very realistic. It is full of awkward moments that anyone can relate to. It is such a feel good film that does not take itself too seriously. I definitely would reccommend it.

 

A Review of Grown Ups 2

Grown Ups 2 is very similar to the first one made in 2010, it has fun, adventure and lots of funny banter between the guys. This one however I thought was more childish humour than the last one. I still enjoyed it but it was suited more towards a child audience this time around. The comedy has a strong cast of Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello, Nick Swardson, Taylor Lautner and Steve Buscem.

In the first one Adam Sandler played Lenny, a very successful Hollywood director who had a reunion with his old school friends. This film showed him and his family moving back to his hometown in Connecticut for some normality. However in Grown Ups 2 there isn’t really a plot line just lots of fun mini adventures the guys have for example the battle between them and the frat guys. I did think the first film was better than this one but this one is still a good watch that will have you laughing out loud in the cinema. If you enjoyed the first one you will definitely enjoy this one!

A Review of the Film ‘Now You See Me’

If you loved the film ‘The Prestige’ then ‘Now You See Me’ would be the perfect movie for you. The cast of the movie is really strong, including Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Melanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, Sir Michael Caine, Woody Harrelson. Each character brings something entirely different to the film but it works really well. It is a film not only full of magic and amazement but of heists and clever mind tricks. I absolutely loved this film, so much so that I went to see it twice at the cinema! The whole way through you are being completely fooled by every trick. Like the actors in the movie you too are intentionally falling into the same traps. It is centred around four illusionists called ‘The Four Horsemen’ who through magic take money from the rich to give back to the poor. ‘Now You See Me’ is packed full of unexpected twists and I would definitely recommend going to see it.
