Me Before You

The Good:

  • A warm and lovely little romantic movie, with truly lovable leads in Game of Thrones-star Emilia Clarke and Hunger Games-actor Sam Claflin.
  • Great chemistry between Clarke and Claflin, even if Clarke does feel somewhat awkward in her overly hipster clothing.
  • Overall, a very faithful adaptation of Jojo Moye's novel.
  • Genuinely funny and touching, with a touch of old school romance somewhere.
  • It never forgets its focus: the story of Lou and Will and the doomed relationship.
  • All actors are great and Matthew Lewis is surprisingly good even when he is not Neville Longbottom.

The Bad:

  • The story progression and the central themes of the movie are hardly anything new or revolutionary.
  • There is little reason to watch this again, as the emotional impact isn't as strong on subsequent viewings.

Verdict:
A faithful adaptation of a best-selling novel in all its warmth and fuzziness, but still just another rom-com for the masses.

Thelma & Louise

The Good:

  • A true feminist classic, still featuring the greatest female duo ever in a film.
  • Flawless performances from Susan Sarandon and Geena Davies, who support each other impeccably and have great chemistry.
  • Great visual direction from Ridley Scott. It's not quite Alien or Blade Runner, but it comes close.
  • Beautiful cinematography.
  • It's the ultimate buddy-movie-gone-rogue script by Callie Khouri.
  • Several memorable scenes: the confrontation with the state trooper, the rape sequence, THAT ending...
  • A small, yet important and annoyingly memorable performance from a young Brad Pitt.
  • Sharp humour and great dialogue.
  • Altogether great performances from the largely male-dominated supporting characters who, deservedly, are portrayed as incompetent swines.

The Bad:

  • It does feel somewhat stretched and repetitive at times.
  • While still a great road movie and feminist feature, some of the things featured in the film feel slightly dated by today's standards.

Verdict:
One of the iconic buddy films of the 20th century, Thelma & Louise is a visually stunning feminist feature with great characters and an addicting plot.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile
Chernobyl

In one of the strongest historical TV shows ever made, Chernobyl paints a terrifying, realistic and emotional picture of what went wrong with the Chernobyl disaster and why.

Made of Honor

The Good:

  • Genuinely warm and lovely, Made of Honor is a feel-good film that succeeds mostly thanks to Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan.
  • Dempsey proves he has great comedic timing and his chemistry with Monaghan sparkles in every scene.
  • Funny to see Dempsey's Grey's Anatomy co-star Kevin McKidd compete for the same woman.
  • The warm atmosphere makes you happy and relaxed.
  • All performances are great, even if most of them outside of the main trio never reach full bloom.
  • Great soundtrack.
  • The humour is subtle and clever, making me laugh several times.

The Bad:

  • Despite being Scottish, McKidd makes for a very awkward Scot.
  • The script is tried and tested and the twists predictable - there are thirteen in a dozen rom-coms like this one.
  • Some of the jokes are a bit too childish and focus on making fun of everything non-American.
  • The characterizations are somewhat one-sided and stereotypical.

Verdict:
Patrick Dempsey's comedic timing helps raise this generic rom-com to newer heights, strengthening the altogether warm and enjoyable atmosphere.
