Artistry in the choreography (soundtrack with scene).
Elgort: charismatic; battling demons re keeping ‘clean’.
Such questionable character motivations
Relating to some third act situations.
Jones stands out, with the best performance on the screen.
Lovingly crafted look at The Beatles’ touring years.
(At concerts, they were hardly heard under the cheers)
It’s a nostalgic sesh,
But still feels vital and fresh.
Plus terrific interviews with friends, fans and peers.
See The Stooges across their lows & their prime,
Grit, grime & a Pop interview that’s sublime,
The bird Iggy flips,
In many sweet live clips,
This film is a real cool time.
For young Conor, life’s not so grand,
Then he and the lads start a band …
(For Raphina he longs)
A joyous ode to 80s songs.
Great scenes when Brendan lends a hand.
Biopic of Williams: living life hard and fast.
(Wanted his name on the Grand Ole Opry’s mast,
He had trouble with the booze,
And so much to lose).
This feeble film doesn’t match the talent of its cast.
Sonita: she’s talented, dedicated and fights
For issues re forced marriage / human rights.
This doco’s so moving
When Sonita defies disapproving
Family re the career in her sights.
At his peak, Baker’s trumpet would burn,
Now he’s out to make his return …
And get back his old touch.
The film meanders a bit too much,
But strong work from Hawke: see Chet yearn.
Davis: one of the greatest musicians to be booked.
A wild goose-chase for his tape has him hooked.
The free-form vibe the film has
(A presumed nod to jazz)
Doesn’t work so well here: feels uncooked.
Paula’s life is family, school and farming.
The prospect of moving to Paris: alarming.
On her, the fam relies.
Emera’s voice really flies.
A delightful film: utterly sweet and charming.
The Beatles go on a fun, trippy ride.
From the Blue Meanies they initially hide.
Inventive animation treats …
And those melodic beats!
This classic holds up, inducing smiles so wide.
