Film Review – The Nest

Good evening friends,

Well, where to start? It’s hard to say because it felt like this film had no beginning, middle or end.

I warn you now, there are spoilers below, but honestly, there are no huge surprises here.

‘Life for an entrepreneur and his American family begin to take a twisted turn after moving into an English country manor’

I was intrigued and excited after I read the description above and watched the trailer for this ‘drama/thriller’. I was given the impression the family would fall into an unhinged lifestyle, full of drama and tension, this wasn’t quite the case.

In a nut shell, set in the 80’s, British ‘entrepreneur’ Rory O’Hara (Jude Law) relocates his American family to the UK to return to his old firm. O’Hara is money hungry and running out of funds, his family are finding it difficult to adjust to their new lives, and are fed up of his lies and neglect.
Also the horse dies.

Whilst O’Hara showed greed and desperation in his actions, I felt a bit of compassion for his family, but that didn’t pull at any heart strings or fill me with emotions – I’m not a robot, I was painfully disappointed and bored.

Half a dozen people walked out less than half way through the film, I’m sure they will wonder what they missed, but I don’t envision them doing that for long.

Take Christopher Nolan’s Tenet for instance, I found the film underwhelming and anti climatic, mostly because the ‘best bits’ were shown in the trailer, but I could appreciate what was in front of me even if it wasn’t to my liking.

I found myself constantly on the edge of my seat waiting for something, anything, to happen. I am extremely disappointed even more so that I had hyped it up and dragged my fiance along for the ride. I would strongly recommend taking a chance and watching any film other than The Nest this year, but if you do happen to catch it and find it appealing, please let me know

Rating? 0/5

Film Review – Bloodshot

Good evening friends!

My boyfriend and I saw an early screening on March 11th and I’ve been meaning to write a review since.

Photo from google

Marine, Ray Garrison (Diesel) gets caught up in some nasty business that leads him to Rising Zero Tech’s lead Doctor, Dr Emil Harting (Guy Pearce)

Shortly after meeting fellow ‘super soldiers’, Garrison flips out and goes rogue.

You know what you’re going to get when you watch a Vin Diesel film. But I’ll tell you now, it didnt disappoint.

I feel as though I’ll say this everytime, do not watch the trailers! Watch a snippet but not all the way through, because as always, you’ll be watching the whole damn film! Spoilers, end scenes and all!

It’s not the film of the year, but for 109 minutes you can sit back and enjoy the cheesy lines ,explosions, and some pretty bad ass fight scenes.

Scoring system 1 – 5

5. Absof*ckinlutly

4. Fetch

3. Well nobodys perfect

2. As if

1. Kastang! you’re busted

Blogmas Day 23 – Star Wars

From January I will be doing numerous film reviews, but this one is super short and sweet, and more of a statement than a blog post but….What more can I say?Unless theres a cinema open right now and you want to welcome christmas day in the cinema, then make it a plan asap after Christmas to see this film!The 9th in the Saga was an emotional rollercoaster; and in my opinion the best in the new trilogy.What films would you recommend this season?
