Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody

A review in 37 words:

It glosses over or rewrites history. The music and lyrics seem to spring from the ether. It even has a borderline absurd Hollywood happy ending. Yes, the film is superficial, but you can’t deny that it’s fun.

Final verdict: 👍

First Man

First Man

A review in 50 words:

First Man is steadfastly focused on Neil Armstrong. Even in space — usually the effects-laden delight — we are often limited to his point of view. It’s only as the film approaches a singular achievement in human history do we get anything resembling ‘epic’. Even then, it shows restraint and focus.

Final verdict: 👍

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

A review in 49 words:

The film is rather flat and passive, mimicking the emotional lockdown the characters have to undergo as they try to survive the emotional abuses of a 1990s gay conversion camp. This isn’t a film you’ll walk out praising, but one you should be thinking about a few days later.

Final Verdict: 👍
