Movies Reviews with Michael Jones
Each week 2’s own Michael Jones swings by to help you decide what new movies are worth watching – and what’s worth giving a miss.
This week Michael reviewed The Hitman’s Bodyguard starring Samuel L Jackson and Ryan Reynolds, and God’s Own Country, directed by feature film debutant Francis Lee.
Michael describes The Hitman’s Bodyguard as your atypical buddy flick, with little to remember or enjoy, with the film akin to something your 8 year old would beg you to go see. The redeeming feature, of course, was Samuel L Jackson.
Second was God’s Own Country. Michael likened the film to This is England (2006), being a gritty, at times incredibly difficult film to watch. Part coming-of-age, part romance, Michael loved the theme of social and physical isolation in far-north England, and the minimal, naturalistic soundtrack. Thumbs up from Michael!
