100 Word Review – Zootropolis (2016)

In a world where predators and prey finally live in harmony, a bunny (Ginnifer Goodwin) tries to buck the social order by becoming a police rabbit, a profession dominated by predators.

It has possibly one of the best trailers around (see below), a fantastic vocal cast (Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Shakira and Jenny Slate) and sense of humour sure to tickle both adults and children alike. Watch out for the┬áBreaking Bad joke! From the creators of Tangled, Wreak It Ralph, Big Hero 6 and Frozen, it was always going to be a winner. It’s definitely worth seeing at the cinema.

100 Word Review – Whiplash (2014)

I came out of this feeling like the skin on a snare drum that had been steadily tightened. Tense doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Andrew (Miles Teller) is a keen drummer in his first year at elite music school Schaeffer, determined to make a name for himself. When he is chosen for The Studio Jazz Band by acclaimed conductor Fletcher (JK Simmons) he this he’s on his way. Little does he know his fight is just beginning.

The relationship between these two actors is mesmerising. It is no surprise that Simmons won an Oscar for his role. He’s breathtaking.
