Midway (12A)

By Film Club

Release Date: 8th November 2019

3/5 Stars

Midway is the non-fiction story of the initial USA and Japanese conflict of WW2, and it being the anniversary of Armistice makes the movie even more impactive. However as the film has been released post the summer boom and having come across minimal marketing I fear it may not be well seen by audiences at the cinema. This would be a real shame as the film’s conflict scenes are visually amazing. Read More

Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (U)

By Film Club

Release Date: 18th October

4/5 Stars

Having loved the previous Shaun the Sheep movie we were really looking forward to watching this sequel, and we were not disappointed. It’s just as cute and just as funny  and it’s got a cuddly alien in it. An alien (Lula) crash lands her ship near Shaun’s home at Mossy Bottom Farm and once he and his fellow sheep discover her and find out that she has impressive alien powers, Read More

Terminator: Dark Fate (15)

By Film Club

Release Date 23rd October 2019

2/5 Stars

After all the hype about Terminator: Dark Fate being a direct sequel to Terminator 2 (thereby disregarding all the other franchise outings) I went in blind. (I had not seen any trailers and didn’t know the plot at all) Also having not watched the others since T2 was back in cinemas a couple of years ago, I felt cautiously optimistic. It seemed like a bit of a cash grab idea but I’m always up for seeing Linda Hamilton being a badass and you can never go wrong with Arnie! Read More

Maleficent : Mistress of Evil (PG)

By Film Club

Release Date: 18th October 2019

Review 5/5 Stars

I went to see Maleficent Mistress of Evil on Monday, I wasn’t looking forward to it but I was shocked and surprised to see such a brilliantly made film. What a treat! The film was exiting, happy, sad, and in some places scary. I really would have been happy if it had been twice the length. I did consider paying to watch it again but I had another appointment and wasn’t able to spare the time! Read More

Abominable (PG)

By Film Club

Release Date: 11th October 2019

3.5/5 Stars

This is a very well thought out DreamWorks animation movie which was great for the whole family. We all laughed and cried at points throughout this screening. There was a lot of laugh out loud moments and some very cute aaaaw moments too! There are a few twists and turns in this movie and certainly some great unexpected ones that no one saw coming!

Joker (15)

By Film Club

Release Date: 4th October 2019

5/5 Stars

We may have seen our fair share of attempts at DC  trying to steal the comic book movie limelight away from Marvel (and fail) and whilst no one asked for a Joker origin story this is definitely a viewing you don’t want to miss. Todd Philips directs this dark, brave and thought provoking story about how the Joker started as failed stand up comedian Arthur Fleck. Read More

Ad Astra (12A)

By Film Club

Release Date 18th September 2019

3/5 Stars

I feel the film started with great expectations and looked like it was going to be a good action-packed movie. However as the film went on it seemed to be very slow and dragged on. Read More

Downtown Abbey (PG)

By Film Club

Release Date: 13th September 2019

4/5 Stars

The new Downton Abbey film is a must for all the fans of the hugely popular TV series- in fact even for those who do not watch the show. It’s beautifully shot and has a warmth around the characters. Even without knowing the back story to all the characters, the film provides enough for you to be able to establish each characters role from the series. With all the favourites back like Maggie Smith and Hugh Bonneville and Maggie Smith is particularly great throughout the film. The warmth and humour throughout the film and between the characters translates onto the big screen just as brilliantly as it did in the TV series. Read More

IT Chapter Two (15)

By Film Club

Release Date: 6th September 2019

4/5 Stars – Review by David Flack

The evil Pennywise clown materialises again in Derry 27 years after the ‘losers club ‘seemingly defeated him. In this sequel to the original ‘IT’ movie of 2017 Director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club, now adults , in a return to where it all began with “IT Chapter Two,” the conclusion to the highest-grossing horror film of all time. The Losers have over the years gone their separate
