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 – Bad Boys for life

Hello and good evening friends,

I’ve had the idea for the past couple of months to do movie review with a twist.

150 words or less, with my own scoring system using some of my favourite tv/film quotes.

Scoring system 1 – 5

5. Absof*ckinlutly

4. Fetch

3. Well nobodys perfect

2. As if

1. Kastang! you’re busted

If you’ve read my previous post, you’ll know that I’ve been a bit tired up this month and my minds been somewhere else.

A cinema trip always helps to free your mind and relax. Enter, Bad Boys 3

Review (spoiler free)

After getting pulled into taking down the leader of a drug cartel, Lowery comes with guns blazing whilst Burnett is accepting that hes too old for it and is ready for retirement.

Martin Lawrence is hilarious as always, and brings heart to the film.Will Smith is Will Smith,alot of one liners and cockiness,but it works.

Captain (Joe Pantoliano), and a few other lovable characters return, along with a couple of fresh faces.
Vanessa Hudgens and Alexander Ludwig are a fantastic addition to the crew and fit in well with the film without it being too forceful, they’re a breath of fresh air.

Along with plenty of jokes and banter, surprisingly, this film pulls at your heart strings as well.

Fast paced action, witty dialogue, summer ready soundtrack, over the top fight scenes, perhaps slightly too predictable in places, and sprinkled with cheese, its exactly what you’d expect from Bad Boys.

Score – Fetch

Have you seen this film and what you rate it?
