Film Review

Hi! Good morning guise! 

So, as my title suggest, I want to make some film reviews, well more like I want to suggest a few movies that are worth watching. I'm just going to list a few and I'll save some more for later.

1. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (2011) 

I watched this film on Stan, which I got a free subscription after signing in for Optus. But anyway, the film is about a young kid who has lost his father and went on for a search for a meaning to a key. A key that he found in his dad's closet. This kid, Oskar, went on looking for the final message he thought his dad left him.

I'm not going to reveal any spoilers here though, so I am just going to tell you that this movie deserve to be on my recommended list. It's heartbreaking to see a young kid, seeking the meaning of life, trying to make sense things that doesn’t make sense.

I was touched watching this movie though, especially during the end of the movie, the scene between Oskar and his mum. Probably because I unconsciously put myself in her position, oh well, mum cries when kids said things like that, you know.

Anyway, if you want to enjoy this movie, try to put yourself in any of the character's shoes and you'll get what I mean, not the father though, 'cause you'll die in the first half an hour. Haha, so try Oskar or his mother. 

2. The Confirmation (2015)

About kid, Anthony, who has to stay with his alcoholic father while his mother went on holiday with her new husband. This movie is not much about the cinematography or the emotion, it seemed much more real. However, I like the scripts. There are scenes when the script lighted the light bulb in my mind, haha. For example, the scene when the father thought Anthony about the terms in carpentry.

"See that chair? Someone built that chair. It's not just one person, several people helped. Remember that. Real people. When you go over a bridge, think about what it took to build that bridge."


"Ever think about the people about who made your appearance? Think about them."

However, there are some things that should not be taken into consideration from this movie. Like stealing and lying. But never mind that, there are kindness in this movie. How the guy actually walked away after looking at the life of the people who stole his stuff and he forgive them.

How both of them actually tried to go through life after one problem and one problem. How they stayed positive while life is getting difficult. Though, this movie is kind of slow but you'll like the storyline. 

3. Room (2015)

This film is about a young mother who has been living in a room for 7 years with her child, Jack, because some crazy maniac took her when she was a young girl. I gotta say, this movie is emotionally tiring. It was kind of depressing and sad movie but it worth a watch for people who needed a different perspective in life.

I've read this book long time ago and I can make sense the storyline. The pain and struggle to be stuck in a room, in a box is really real. Not that I can't imagine how she's been able to go through it. I've forgotten the scripts but I like that one scene when Jack gave his hair to his mother so that she can get stronger. How amazing a mind of young kid can be sometimes.

I just realised, of all the movies I've listed above, all of them were about a kid. Haha, I guessed I like the point of view of kid. They are so pure and honest and they has not been tainted with any ugly truth about people and life. Have a go for these movies and feel free to tell me what you think about them or even suggest me new movies to watch, haha.

Till then, have a good Sunday peeps, BYE!
