The story of American scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb.


Daniel - ★★★★★

"This was an absolutely amazing movie that is defo in my top 10.

The cinematography was stunning and the acting was perfect. My favourite scene was when they dropped the nuclear bomb because of how much tension there was before you could actually hear it. This movie is definitely the best I’ve seen as far as it goes cast wise with some of the greatest actors of our generation starring in the film. Even though this films run time was around 3 hours, because of the amazing pacing it felt like it passed very quickly. My favourite character was J. Robert Oppenheimer because of the great performance by Cillian Murphy.

Overall this was an amazing masterpiece of a film I could recommend to anyone who enjoys movies."

Euan (Age 12) - ★★★★

Best Animated Film


Miles Morales catapults across the multiverse, where he encounters a team of Spider-People charged with protecting its very existence. When the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles must redefine what it means to be a hero.


Jan (Age 12) - ★★★★1/2

"This movie was amazing, but in comparison to the first one was just not as good. The animation was brilliant!!!! But the story and some of the characters were kinda strange. Miles Morales was awesome, Gwen was okay, Peter wasn't used enough in this film (he was still really good), Miguel was not the best, Spider-Punk was just weird, and Spider-Ham was barely used throughout the film😭. Gwen's universe had weird animation, in some of the scenes the background (of what should be the inside of a flat) kept changing colour and style of animation. I think the cliff-hanger ending was great, I can't wait to see 'Spider-Man beyond the Spider-Verse'!!!

Overall, I enjoyed this film a lot, but I am kind of disappointed about the storyline, otherwise I think it was a nice movie."

 

1 Nomination:


WINNER: Best Visual Effects


Post war Japan is at its lowest point when a new crisis emerges in the form of a giant monster, baptized in the horrific power of the atomic bomb.


Stewart: ★★★★★

"An excellent reimagining of the Godzilla movie - a perfect monster/disaster movie with plenty of melodrama and allegory on the war. I do still kind of feel sorry for the monster itself - maybe because it looks like a giant dog! Still this is a fantastic film worth catching at the cinema."

 

Available on Disney+

1 Nomination:


Best Visual Effects


Still reeling from the loss of Gamora, Peter Quill rallies his team to defend the universe and one of their own - a mission that could mean the end of the Guardians if not successful.


Evan (Age 11) - ★★★★★

"It's sad and really pulls your heart strings but it's also funny and filled with action. I give it 5 stars."

1 Nomination:


Best International Feature Film


A janitor in Japan drives between jobs listening to rock music.
