The Color Purple review by Con

In Cinemas 26/1/24 (12A) 3 Stars

Youth #Gottit View:

If this film didn’t have the songs (Which are well written and brilliantly performed, for the record) in the movie – this would probably be the best remake in years. The cast are outstanding, the film is really well made and it’s a brilliant story that all generation should know. But we found it very uncomfortable regularly, when you find yourself tapping your foot to songs that often have a ‘jolly’ tone about domestic abuse towards woman. Sadly the songs didn’t work for us, in such an impactful and important story – but everything else was brilliant!!!

Youth #Gottit View:

This is guaranteed to be one of the movie hits of 2024. Catchy songs, Great performances and a fun revenge story. Mean Girls is like the love child of Grease and Grease 2 – Highly Recommended!!!

The Boys In The Boat

The Boys In The Boat review by Con

In Cinemas 12/1/24 (12A) 3.5 Stars

Youth #Gottit View:

This isn’t a film that Connor would naturally be drawn to. But he enjoyed it far more than he expected to. Think ‘Creed in a Row Boat’ rather than ‘The Boys in the Boat’ and that’s more the level of entrainment you’re likely to get from see it. Surprisingly exciting throughout with a great story!!!

DC Comics – Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

DC Comics – Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom review by Con!!!

In Cinemas 21/12/23 (12A) 1.5 Stars

Youth #Gottit View:

Where to start? The reality is, if you’ve seen all of the other recent DC movies and followed the ongoing story – you need to see this film. But for a final movie in a series, this is more a ‘Get It Done’ than a ‘Grand Explosive Finale’. It’s such a shame as the original version of Aquaman 2 sounded really good. It feels like ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ as a movie, had to deal with the same issues the final movie in the X-Men franchise had to deal with. Youngsters up to 16 years old will enjoy it – but most cinema goers will struggle. Roll on Superman Legacy and a new era in DC Comics movie making!!!

We always love anything from the Studio Ghibli team. It’s so refreshing to watch classic animation and original/unique stories. A must see for new and old Ghibli fans!!!

Godzilla Minus One review by Con

In Cinemas 15/12/23 (12A) 5 Stars

Youth #Gottit View:

This isn’t the Hollywood Godzilla films we’ve all be used to in recent years. This is a far deeper take on the world around the iconic beast, taking place in post war Japan during the late 40’s. Epic stuff from start to finish – Highly Recommended!!!

Youth #Gottit View:

This is such a fun festive horror movie inline movies like Gremlins and Five Nights At Freddy’s. This film could have maybe done with either being less violent to get a 12A or more violent to be a true 15. That said, it’s great fun and young horror fans will love the movie!!!

Napoleon review by Con

In Cinemas 22/11/23 (15) 4 Stars

Youth #Gottit View:

This is a fantastic Hollywood Popcorn History movie in a similar genius to Braveheart. The perfect retelling of Napoleon’s story for the adults today who grew up with Horrible Histories. Highly Recommended!!!
