FILM REVIEW // Enola Holmes, The Devil All The Time, Project Power, I’m Thinking Of Ending Things

Hello, my pumpkins, and happy Friday! Today, I am sharing with you my reviews on the following films: Project Power, The Devil All The Time, I’m Thinking Of Ending Things, and Enola Holmes. I am so sorry I have not published movie reviews in a while and I have not been sticking to my regular schedule but with the virus, I have not been up to date with movie releases. Also, I haven’t been watching anything new, due to my anxiety.

Anyway, if you want to know my honest thoughts on these movies then keep on reading. And, don’t forget to check out my previous post: REVIEW // Slip Shine Sheer Lipstick Shiny by Fenty Beauty

Film Review

Project Power [2020] 2.5/5

Retrieved from IMDB

“When a pill that gives its users unpredictable superpowers for five minutes hits the streets of New Orleans, a teenage dealer and a local cop must team with an ex-soldier to take down the group responsible for its creation.”

“Project Power” is undeniably entertaining and delivers some really dynamic action scenes mixed with an interesting story idea. However, the movie is far from being exceptional. Nothing really stands outs; the story is average (the way it was developed and executed) and the performance is standard. On top of that, the movie leans more towards being a typical mass-produced film than being artistic with unique features and memorable moments. Personally, I definitely think it is close to being rubbish but is not quite there yet. Again, I did think it was extremely entertaining and I absolutely loved Jamie Fox and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

The Devil All The Time [2020] 3/5

Retrieved from IMDB

“Sinister characters converge around a young man devoted to protecting those he loves in a postwar backwoods town teeming with corruption and brutality.”

I am very surprised but I enjoyed this movie more than I expected, only because I read awful reviews on it. But, I will have to agree with most film critics that the story was poorly executed and the movie takes more than it can handle. That leads the movie to become a huge mess with no proper aim and a poor structure. I did find the story to be extremely interesting and absolutely loved the performance of the actors/actresses. However, these aspects were not enough to make me love this film…or to even save it.

I’m Thinking Of Ending Things [2020] 3.5/5

Retrieved from IMDB

“Full of misgivings, a young woman travels with her new boyfriend to his parents’ secluded farm. Upon arriving, she comes to question everything she thought she knew about him, and herself.”

“I’m Thinking Of Ending Things” is a heavy watch that deals with deep philosophical themes presented through intense metaphorical scenes. In fact, I didn’t quite understand the film at first, I had to make my research. But, it is, by no doubt, extremely innovative, distinctive, and eye-catching. The film intentionally leaves you confused and scratching your head, trying to understand what you are watching. It has a dark and unsettling atmosphere, which I absolutely love, and the story develops brilliantly throughout the movie. The movie actually starts off as a regular drama but slowly develops into this unsettling and weird psychological film. I definitely think it was a struggle for me to watch it, especially that I wasn’t sure what I was understanding. But, if you like the challenge, I highly recommend it!

Enola Holmes [2020] 4/5

Retrieved from IMDB

“When Enola Holmes-Sherlock’s teen sister-discovers her mother missing, she sets off to find her, becoming a super-sleuth in her own right as she outwits her famous brother and unravels a dangerous conspiracy around a mysterious young Lord.”

In contrast with “I’m Thinking Of Ending Things”, “Enola Holmes” is a very light-hearted, charming, and joyous movie. To be very honest, I never knew I wanted a movie about Sherlock Holmes’s sister until I watched this film. “Enola Holmes” is extremely fast-paced and highly engaging. It does not contain any dull moments and gets better and more entertaining as the minutes pass. Furthermore, Millie Bobby Brown gives an amazing performance as Enola and the cast, in general, is spot-on! On another note, the movie contains amazing character development, especially for the character of Enola Holmes and the story was beautifully developed and executed. Of course, under the witty script and fun adventure, comes the core theme of the film which is of feminism and the need for a progressive society, and while I think the theme should have been better implemented, I definitely appreciated it!

5/5: Excellent!

4/5: Very Good

3/5: Good

2/5: Bad

1/5: VERY bad! 

That’s it for these mini movie reviews. I hope you enjoyed reading them and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ and to follow my blog.

    I really liked Enola Holmes (tbh I only watched it because of Millie) but it was very nice, quite different from anything I’ve seen! (that’s honestly why I normally love Netflix originals)
