My July movie Reviews


Welcome to my new monthly feature! I am a big movie fan and I have a monthly cinema card so that 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!


Incredibles 2

So 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. 

The film is animated 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. I had been watching another movie and then needed to fill some time before I could get a lift home and 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. 


Patrick

This was a lovely light-hearted movie, especially for a dog lover like myself! A lady who is not really a fan of pets gets left a pug called Patrick in her grandmother's will and the movie is set around the adjustments 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.
