August 2018 movie reviews

Welcome to my monthly movie feature! I am a big movie fan and I have a monthly cinema card. This means I can visit my local cinema as many times a month as time will allow. So I thought that I would give my thoughts on the films which I have watched each month. However, this is just my opinion so please don’t send me angry messages if you watch a movie which I have recommended and you did not actually like it!

Hotel Transylvania 3: A monster vacation

FJ and I had been really looking forward to seeing this having already watched the first two movies and it did not disappoint us. One of the great things about this movie is that you do not need to have seen the other two movies to understand the plot as they are stand-alone movies. In this one like the title suggests the family decide to go on vacation. They book onto a cruise which is especially for monsters but get more than they bargained for as all is not as it would first appear! This is a great film which is very funny and really enjoyable to watch.

Skyscraper

An action-packed movie starring the gorgeous Dwayne Johnson (the rock). This has a good storyline where the main character needs to break his way into a tower block to save his family. There were lots of bottom-clenching moments and it was a very enjoyable film.

Mamma Mia! Here we go again

This was the second in this series and I had not watched the first one. I only saw this one as CJ wanted to see it and unfortunately, it was not my cup of tea. The film is a musical set to ABBA songs and has a star-studded cast which includes Cher, Meryl Streep and Colin Firth. I normally like musicals but this was just too cheesy for me although CJ said that she enjoyed it. 

Mission Impossible – Fallout

Another action movie which this time starred the fabulous Tom Cruise. This is the sixth film in the movie franchise and I must confess, the only one which I have seen. It is very much spy gadgets and action stunts but was actually really enjoyable to watch. I was very impressed with Tom Cruise and I think that he looks extremely good for 57! 

The Darkest Minds

This was an amazing movie which left both me and CJ stunned at the end and desperate for a second film! In the film, there has been an unknown illness which affects children and results in some of the children developing abilities. The government fears these children and therefore have ordered that all children must live in a prison type camp. Some of the children who have exceptionable powers are to be executed. The film had me gripped throughout and I highly recommend it!
