Suburbicon (15) – what’s it about? A family that live in a nice quiet neighbourhood in suburbia who end up getting robbed.
This was pretty slow. The story was really obvious and there wasn’t anything that left me wondering. There just wasn’t anything that really wowed me or kept me intrigued or too interested. I don’t really know what to say apart from I was pretty bored by it, for me it just fell flat. I did however like it a tiny bit more after thinking about it to actually warrant giving it two stars, but still not enough to make me want to ever watch it again. I bet some people will think it’s brilliant though but it’s not my cup of tea.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (12A) – what’s it about? A group of teenagers get transported into the video game of Jumanji where they have to complete their quest to return to the real world.
So I thought this was going to be pretty bad. I liked the original and I wasn’t sure how they were going to bring this one back without spoiling it. Of course it wasn’t the same, they had tried something new with it but it worked, for one movie but I really don’t think it’d be as amusing if they re-done the same thing again. This actually gave me some lol moments; I’m not sure if I should have laughed at them but yep it made me laugh and smile (yes a rare moment for me) so it was must have been good. If you have a silly sense of humour you’ll probably enjoy this one, just don’t expect it to replace the original.
Antz (DVD – PG) – what’s it about? A worker ant that wants to change his life and trades places with a soldier ant for a day.
So I haven’t seen this one for many years and thought I’d re-watch it as I couldn’t really remember much about it. It was an enjoyable film that is aimed at the whole family. It’s quite deep though when you think about it with the whole thing about society structures and stuff but to the kids it’s just another fun cartoon. It does have some good moments, and it does have some good story too, it’s not just meh or just for the sake of being. Yeah it’s one to curl up on the sofa with and just watch and not have to think too much about.
