[Movies of the Month] August

August

1ST TIMERS
Into the Woods 
– Shot well, with great turns by Blunt, Corden and Streep, but the mish-mash of accents is very irritating. ★★★
Rogue – Tense Australian indie that’s let down slightly by poor CGI and some wooden acting. ★★★½
The Nice Guys – Crowe and Gosling are the perfect pairing! Plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and a great step back in time. ★★★★

REWATCHES
Kill Bill: Volume 1 – Probably my favourite Tarantino film. Q&U created such a  spirited, kick-ass character in The Bride. ★★★★
Kill Bill: Volume 2 – One extended film would have been too much; two parts are perfect. A fitting conclusion. ★★★★
Wayne’s World – An excellent feel-good film that will have you quoting lines for days after. ★★★★
Total Recall – Action-packed from start to finish with a good lead in Farrell. Can’t comment on the fact it’s a remake as I haven’t seen the original. ★★★½
