Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be talking about the films I’ve watched in the last few months, which are a mixed but generally positive bunch! Onto the post!
The Lion King- the original Lion King is one of my favourite Disneys, so I was really pleased that I also loved the live action version. The voice cast were excellent choices for their roles, I loved the CGI and the cinematography was totally stunnjng. I also thought the music was brilliant- I especially loved I Just Can’t Wait to Be King. The only thing I wasn’t so keen on was Be Prepared, which is my favourite Lion King song, because it was cut so short and it just didn’t live up to how epic the original was.
Always be My Maybe– the afternoon I watched this I was in desperate need of some romcom goodness to take my mind off pain from a fall and sickness, and unfortunately it just didn’t deliver. It takes a ridiculous length of time to get going, and it could have done with being much shorter. I also just didn’t really click with the humour, or feel invested in the characters and their getting together. However, I fully acknowledge I am the unpopular opinion with this, so you may still enjoy it.
Falling Inn Love– I enjoyed this so much, even though it is absolutely chock full of clichés and the plot was so predictable I could have literally written it myself. It’s about a woman who moves to New Zealand to renovate the inn she’s just won online, with the help of a handsome local contractor. The two leads have great chemistry with each other, and I thought the supporting characters were well cast as well. I also liked the humour, particularly how it uses the fish out of water trope. I do kind of wish there was a bigger romantic gesture at the end, but the one that does happen is quite cute so I’ll let it slide!
Which films have you watched in the last couple of months? Are you planning to see or have you already seen the ones I saw? I’d love to hear in the comments!
