Just five movies seenin December taking my total for year to 107, but which is movie of the month?
Sully: The true story of Chesley Sullenberger the pilot who landed his damaged plane on the Hudson River following a bird strike. Directed with a light touch but a strong political message by Clint Eastwood.
Rogue One: Described as an anthology film rather than one of the episodes, it is actually a direct prequel to the original 1977 movie. Essentially a war movie set within the Star Wars universe, it has action, adventure and comedy, but it is also darker than any of the other movies. The cast is fantastic particularly Felicity Jones in the lead.
Pasengers: Lightweight but largely enjoyable Sci-Fi. The concept isn’t entirely new but has enough new ideas to keep it feeling fresh. The execution is a little ham fisted and all surface but does hold the interest largely thanks to strong visuals and a likeable cast.
A close call between Edge of Seventeen and Rogue One, the winner being:
