10 Cloverfield Lane is directed by Dan Trachtenberg, staring all of three actors throughout the whole film, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Gallagher and John Goodman and is about a young girl who wakes up in a bunker after a car accident and is told she cannot leave because the air is un breathable and everyone is dead. But to pre warn you this is just another Cloverfield film not a sequel, prequel or reboot.
I'm going to start off by saying straight away that this film is one of the best films I personally have ever seen. The whole film for a start has an incredibly strong plot that holds itself perfectly from start to finish, There was suspense carried throughout the whole of the film and it really made the mood freaky and mysterious, also the fact that it is all building to a climax which really draws you into the screen as it did me since I was sat on the edge of my seat the whole film. Another aspect of the film that made is to amazing was the atmosphere. Wow this was absolutely incredible, and for me made the film; it was dark and tense with creepy long pauses and made it very claustrophobic like you were in this bunker with them.
I must say whist Goodman was oscar worthy in this film, with his psychotic character who created most of the films exposition and was so humongous that he made me the audience member feel week and powerless. Many people will agree that he gave of the best performance but I there was an actor more worthy of an oscar... and she goes by the name of Mary Elizabeth Winstead. She was flawless in this, and gave of one of the best performances I have ever seen. This is one of her first proper films, and the first film I have ever seen her in. Winstead gave of a phenomenal performance, she was scared and confused but also very curious towards the truth about the outside world. Something I admired so greatly about her character was that she wasn't dumb she was a very very intelligent character who worked tremendously as the films protagonist.
I'd just like to mention that this is the director's first film and my goodness congratulations, you're first creation quite possibly be an award winning classic.
For it's stunning acting, plot and atmosphere and for having virtually no special effects
I am going to give 10 Cloverfield Lane:
ILondon has fallen is directed by Babak Najafi and stars Gerald Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman and is another film like the original Olympus has fallen but i warn you is not a sequel to the first film it is just another 'has fallen' film. London has fallen is about a mass terror attack that strikes all around London and who better to save the day than bad-ass Butler.
This was jolly good fun! With this film you have to know what you're going into; a cheesy action film to watch on a night out. Make sure you don't expect a huge multi million dollar action film.
Whilst they tried so very hard, visually this film was average. The CGI looked merely okay and could probably be made on a phone app. But I must admit for a low budget film that doesn't take it's self seriously it was very good and am not too fussed.
The acting was laughable apart but I have to admit Gerald Butler whilst an okay actor, gave off some pretty funny lines that were well delivered. An amazing rare occasion where the sequel was actually a lot better than the original and towers over it.
I am going to give London has fallen:
Hail Cesar is directed by the Coen Brothers and stars Josh Broslin, Channing Tatum, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill and is an old tribute to how they originally made hollywood films. The Film is about a famous actor who is kidnapped and held up for ransom. Well sort of.
I am sorry to start March of on such a bad note. Sadly I didn't like this film because I found it hard to grasp what it was aiming for. It was a 2 hour tribute to how they made hollywood movies back in the day. Which in some sense worked but not in all. I struggled to find the plot; this film's was not clear to me at all and really was about nothing . I found it long, boring but at the same time fairly stylish.
I unfortunately disliked the way this film was made,there was not much to digest as anauvidence member. One thing that really got me was that the strength of the cast, it was amazing, and Josh Broslin was literally the only character in it, the others were cameos. Whilst I have to admit Broslin gave off a very cool, collective performance. Also, I did appreciate a hidden jem they placed in the film that goes by the name of Alden Ehrenreich,; this man killed the part of a dumb western actor who took on challenging rolls when they switch his acting contract, I loved him because he was the only real character who was developed.
In the end, the film offers a smart, snappy, stylish look at how films were made in the 50's, but the film had no plot to go along with and most of the humour I either completely missed or wasn't apparent at all. Hail Caesar is a slow paced, duller version of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'
I'm going to give Hail Caesar
