Movie Reviews: Fevurary 3rd - February 9th 2018

Another Sunday, another lot of movie reviews. As always, I go into more detailed thoughts on my movie reviews video over on my BookTube channel which I will leave at the bottom of this post once it is live so if you want a little more detail, give that a watch please and thank you!

I went to see this one because it is nominated in three of the Oscars categories and so I wanted to share my thoughts on it during my Oscars week videos. This is mainly set in Poland and France and I think its feels a bit like a mashup between Fame, Schindlers List and Breakfast at Tiffany's if that doesn't sound too far fetched. I liked the main female lead in this one, not the male lead. I liked the music and the romance and I hope I get to see more from this actress in the future!

This is the restoration of The British Museum's WW1 footage which has been restored and remastered and then cut together by Peter Jackson. I thought it was good and it was interesting but not anything super special. I didn't like where the lip readers had decided what the soldiers were saying and they'd then dubbed them but I thought the voice overs of the former soldiers of WW1 with stories were really interesting. I wish I had had this when I was learning about WW1 in school!

This movie was just really weird and I only stayed until the end because it was really cold outside and snowing and I wanted to wait it out until the roads got better. I thought this was going to be a romantic drama, it wasn't. It ended up being some kind of sci-fi thing or dystopian thing with a lot of over acting and not much plot. I don't recommend this one!
