Mood Indigo

As usual with a Michel Gondry film, this is all very strange. Starts off pure mad with the two leads start off a romance in a fantasy world with beautiful imagery. Then about half way through it takes a turn and becomes something else. As a whole this does not really work. you do feel like the film is split into two (literally), and the message the second half tries to convey does not match up with the first. Still, it is well worth a watch for the surreal moments, the maddest wedding ever and two leads who are always watchable.

A big disappointment this. Lifeless and for the most part plodding action that looks at the legend of hercules. Actually has a nice set up and view on the legend, but it fails to liven up the film. Scrapes a second star because the cast are all great (Ian McShane and John Hurt give their all) and the finale is strong.

Nicolas Cage takes a break from making silly action b movies, to remind us all that he is a very talented actor. A nasty little drama this, that looks at the darker side of American living, and includes some hard to watch scenes. But the message of hope allows the film to always have a spark that prevents thing going too dark. Hopefully this is a return to form that Cage can produce regularly, rather than every five years.

Boyhood

There has never been a film like this before, and there may never be again. Shot over 12 years, this chronicles a boy growing from 6 to 18. While there are some tough moments, for the most part it is a lighthearted drama that looks at all aspects of growing up, and how the adult word affects you. The cast are uniformly excellent and the film is so good, you hardly notice the backside numbing three hour running time. Just an excellent film, that every film fan should watch.

Nice little film this. Never really clicks into greatness, but a likable cast and some good laughs make it an enjoyable watch. And the food all looks amazing.

Yes, it's not clever. Yes, you can see the jokes coming from a mile away. But this film is really really funny, that you don't really care. If ever there was a film that could be considered a guilty pleasure it is this. Just so stupid you have to laugh.

Top notch summer blockbusters are coming thick and fast this summer, and this is another. Even better than the 2011 film it follows, this action adventure is nicely dark throughout. The plot is excellent, the cast superb, and some of the special effects set pieces are breathtaking. All summer films should be this good.

Solid if unremarkable thriller with Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston. Just never goes beyond okay due to a weak script and questionable turns. But the cast do their best, but has to go down as wasted opportunity.

Really nice little film this, that is both funny and touching, without getting soppy. The cast are all great, the soundtrack fantastic and New York has never looked better. Just a great feel good movie.

Mr. Morgan's Last Love

While a little flat to begin with, about half way through the film, this picks up into a nice little drama looking at the budding relationship between an old man and a young dance instructor. As you would expect Michael Caine and Clemence Posey are great, and it never gets too syrupy. But although a good watch, you can't help feeling that there was a better film to be made here.

Transformers 4

The Transformers movies (and Michael Bay himself) get a bad time from most everyone. But as usual, if you turn your brain off there is plenty to enjoy here. Stanly Tucci also is hilarious in a role he is obviously enjoying every minute of it. It is ridiculously long though at nearly three hours long, but at least it never gets dull.

Really good and interesting film this. Starts off as a tense unsettling thriller, that then moves in surprising directions. The cast are all great, the twists keep coming and there are some wonderful moments of black humour. Very good effort.
