The Hitman’s Bodyguard: Film Review

Spent a free afternoon in the cinema, finally watching The Hitman’s Bodyguard. I didn’t really see a trailer for this beforehand. All I knew going into this film, was that it was meant to be one of those miss matched comedy pairing based film. This isn’t a negative thing, but it just doesn’t work for some films.

Although Samuel L Jackson and Ryan Reynolds are certainly a acting pair that doesn’t go together. That being said, they did have a good chemistry on screen, throughout the film. A great portrayal of a love hate relationship. However the action sequences are just something else. So well put together. Definitely a high point for the film, along with the storyline. I actually enjoyed. The cast and crew did an amazing job.

I totally would recommend this film. It’s action packed, and provides some good laughs. Let me know via twitter (@RebeccaKLxo) your thoughts about the movie.

Annabelle Creation : Film Review.

As a big horror fan, and seeing so many positive reviews for this movie; I clearly had to watch this. Along with many other reasons including the fact that I’ve seen every movie in the conjuring universe. The trailer for Annabelle Creation set a very high bar of standard in my mind. Making me jump everytime I view it. There’s just something about creepy dolls that freak me out.

Overall it was great. Always made to a high standard. It fitted into The Conjuring universe perfectly. I especially loved the little nod to the demon nun. I won’t explain further, as it’ll be a spoiler in the movie. The cast and crew did an amazing job in creating Annabelle. I really do hope James Wan stay on to produce all the movies in this universe, because I really feel like the franchise wouldn’t be the same without him.

I do recommend that you go see this film, especially if you are a fan of horror films. Let me know what you think via twitter?

Valerian & The City of a Thousand Stars: Film Review.

I’ve been seeing mixed reviews about this, since it’s been released. I am a big fan of the comic book series titled Valerian and Laureline. So knowing this background I would of ended up watching it anyway. I watched it anyway in 3D, as it’s meant to be the 3D film of the year. I was also intrigued by the trailer, for it’s visual effects. It’s also the largest crowd funded independent movie made. I will not post any spoilers.

Positive points to this film, in my opinion there wasn’t many. It was colourful, and very visually stunning. Of course the crew did an amazing job pulling this film off. I’m a big fan of Dane Dehaan’s acting work. Though I feel like this wasn’t his best film he’s done, I feel like he outshone Cara Delevigne. Don’t get me wrong, she’s pretty, and a great model. Though I don’t think she can act at all. Her wardrobe in the film was beautiful though. I want some of the pieces for myself.

Overall I was quite disappointed with this movie. It was pretty substance lacking, with a basic, predictable storyline. There wasn’t a huge amount of action, in the film but maybe one or two epic scenes.  The romantic feel to the story, felt forced, and wasn’t aided by Dane and Cara. I didn’t feel like they had any chemistry together. I got bored part of the way through the film, which shouldn’t happen.

This was my experience watching the film. I do know people that have really enjoyed this film. If you go see it, let me know your opinions on this film. I do recommend reading the comic book though.
