My Letterboxd account documents what films I am watching, usually films for the first time but occasionally a film I haven’t logged before.
Here’s a summary of the films I have watched this month, including a rating and short review for each.
This May I have watched 5 films:
Here’s what I thought of them:
“A heart warming and original tale, brilliantly directed by Granik and tremendously acted by Lawrence. It’s a very unique story that, whilst not entertaining or full of drama, is led by intrigue.”
“We may have seen it all with the first three films, but it’s a great nostalgic film that is full of what we loved about the films in the first place. Nothing is too repetitive but at the same time it isn’t anything new. Still, it’s great to see the whole cast back together and how their American Pie characters turned out. Overall, it’s a very funny and entertaining film.”
The Deep Blue Sea
“Hiddleston is brilliant here; even if quite unlikeable, it’s hard to take your eyes off him. Great cinematography, brilliant acting from Weisz too, and I really enjoyed the mosaic structure to the story line. It wasn’t the happy story I had hoped for, and the slow pace of the film only makes it more depressing, but it gave enough impact to make me want to see it again.”
The Lucky One
“Not nearly as good as the many other adaptations of Nicolas Sparks’ novels, but it is still an enjoyable film and a great romance. Whilst quite sentimental in places, there is a darker sub-plot built in that gives it an extra layer.”
“Great film and great actors, and very interesting to watch about a real-life case. Unfortunately it had a non-end to it so after two and a half hours it began to drag a little. Still, it was full of intrigue and constant curiosity.”
