A woodcutter’s son journeys to find hope to save his father and his kingdom. Very straightforward festive origin fantasy shamelessly lifted structure-wise from The Princess Bride. A decent cast helps no end: the flick relies on professional support for its scant charm.
A man with mental health issues finds that he is the current incarnation of an immortal, and that a war wages for Earth’s survival. Clumsy and often incoherent Highlander / The Matrix / The Old Guardwannabe for lovers of the later Fast and the Furious movies. No-one comes out of this with much dignity. Not great at all.
A mission to rescue dinosaurs from Isla Nublar turns out to be a double-cross. Awkward sequel which doesn’t make a lick of sense, being a string of chase and rescue set-pieces stitched together; the third act is the best, with a horror movie feel to it.
Peter Morgan’s adaptation of his own play about the 1977 David Frost/Richard Nixon TV interviews. A riveting docudrama which plays like a thriller, anchored by two standout performances in the title roles, supported ably by a strong cast. Recommended.
