Welcome to my new monthly 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!
This is the second movie in this franchise which first started in 2004, so it has been a long wait for the Incredible fans. I had not personally seen the first movie, but FJ really wanted me to take her to see it.
This is an animated movie and is about a family of superheroes. There are the mum, dad and three children, one of whom is a baby who is discovering his powers. There is currently a worldwide ban on superheroes so they are all in hiding. Of course, there is a baddie who the heroes have to defeat, but I do not want to give too much away.
This was an ok movie for me, which did have a few funny moments, but it was really enjoyed by FJ who said it was great.
Swimming with Men
When I went to see this film I actually knew nothing about it. Needing to fill some time before I could get a lift home after watching another movie, it just so happened that this film started at the time that I needed it to, so I thought that I would give it a go.
I am so glad that I found this film, as it was really lovely to watch. It stars Rob Brydon as a man who is struggling with his roles in life at work and within his family, who uses swimming to unwind. Here he meets a group of men who for a variety of different reasons also use the pool to unwind, but have also created a group of male synchronised swimmers. The underlying theme of the movie is making connections with people and there are some very funny moments along with a few sad ones which in my opinion makes a great feel-good movie. I would highly recommend this movie.
This movie was lovely and light-hearted, especially for a dog lover like myself! A lady who is not a fan of pets gets left a pug called Patrick in her grandmother’s will and the movie is set around the adjustments to her life that this takes. It really illustrates the bond and many benefits that having a dog can bring to a person along with all of the mischief that they can also bring!
In conclusion the best film I saw this month was swimming with men. Patrick was a very enjoyable film and Incredibles 2 was ok for me and great for my 10-year-old.
