Movie of the week – The East

After a long spell without watching anything the Movie of the week post is back!

A thriller about an Eco-terrorist organisation. Not perfect but raises some interesting questions.

Movie of the week – The Croods

Unlike Pixar films this one is more for the younger audience than adults. However, it’s not about the story or the characters. It’s about the animation and the visuals. Worth watching for these.

Movie of the week – Robot & Frank

This is one of those movies where my appreciation of it lies at the higher end of the ratings/reviews it received from critics. I’m not quite sure why.

Curmudgeonly old Frank lives by himself. His routine involves daily visits to his local library, where he has a twinkle in his eye for the librarian. His grown children are concerned about their father’s well-being and buy him a caretaker robot. Initially resistant to the idea, Frank soon appreciates the benefits of robotic support – like nutritious meals and a clean house – and eventually begins to treat his robot like a true companion. With his robot’s assistance, Frank’s passion for his old, unlawful profession is reignited, for better or worse.
