[Movies of the Month] April

April

NEW RELEASES
High-Rise – Bizarre but fascinating (and scarily realistic) take on life and culture within a high rise block of flats. ★★★½

1ST TIMERS
A Room for Romeo Brass 
– Very much a character piece; Considine shines in his feature film debut. ★★★½

REWATCHES
The Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers – Still my favourite of the trilogy; epic battle, more beautiful music, more stunning scenery . ★★★★★
The Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King – A fitting conclusion to an incredibly strong trilogy. ★★★★½
Blue Crush – Three stars awarded for the stunning scenery and girl power ethos rather than the borderline acting and weak love story. ★★★
The World’s End – First rewatch and still plenty of laughs. ★★★½
Shaun of the Dead – Probably my favourite Pegg/Frost collaboration, this never fails to put a smile on my face. ★★★★
The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey – Several rewatches later and I still get the same goosebumps as the music begins and we return to Middle-earth. ★★★★
The Hobbit – The Desolation of Smaug – Bilbo comes into his own, revealing himself to certainly be (in mine and my boyfriend’s opinion) the most brave and strong of Tolkien’s hobbits, and actually one of the courageous of all Tolkien’s characters. ★★★★
The Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies – The extended scenes were particularly noticeable in BOTFA and added a lot more atmosphere to the film. ★★★★
Snow White and the Huntsman – Still a stunning film visually but my enjoyment is going down on each rewatch. ★★★
The Italian Job – First rewatch in many, many years; an absolute classic that I appreciate more now that I have owned a classic Mini. ★★★★

One thought on “[Movies of the Month] April”

  1. Considine blew me away in A Room For Romeo Brass – he’s just brilliant. I really want to see High Rise… sooner rather than later.
