Amrita



Amrita is half Indian, half French and was raised in Mali as a child. She has an idealistic love for the way that cinema bonds us all together through shared experiences and so she chose to study a BA with Joint Honours in Drama with Film and TV Studies at Brunel University. It is fair to say films have forever been a strong part of her life, ever since she was a toddler dancing to Grease and various Hindi movies in Africa, and that same passion brought her to Vue cinema Harrow as my first real job. Now, at 27, she is working as a Lead Bookseller and, as well as being an avid reader, she is am a self-proclaimed film fanatic who actively tries to watch as many as possible- the more varied the genres, the better! So reviewing films, therefore, has persisted as a natural outlet for her and what makes her a great movie lover!

Ingrid Goes West

We all know the habit is a tough one to break: the habit of constantly reaching for our phones, tablets, laptops and computers, so that we can keep up with the ever-changing world of social media; so that we can share more of our lives- in hopes of garnering more ‘likes’; so that we can feel like we belong, like we fit in. But, once you watch this month’s movie, and after the final moments have passed- after the lights come on and the credits start to roll, please resist the urge to grab your phone because, if there’s one thing you should take away from Ingrid Goes West, it’s that real life is the real story, and it’s happening right now, in front of you!

Ready Player One

I’m a big fan of the book and of Steven Spielberg but lots of the footage from the trailers didn’t really have me convinced. Fear not because it’s an incredible film. Don’t think it’s all Easter eggs and references to other films, characters, video games etc. The film is good itself.

It’s a fun, exciting adventure with good characters as well as small nods or references to pop culture. There’s loads of scene with countless characters milling about in the back, only a few of which I recognised but there are many more that slipped over my head. It’s such a fun adventure that’s a delight to watch- the visuals are brilliant. And it’s actually quite funny. Make sure to see it on a biiiiiig screen.

It strayed quite a bit from the book but in really good ways! They took out some less visual exciting stuff for some really entertaining scenes. Particularly one awesome race towards the start

One tiny problem I had was Mark Rylance. As James Halliday he was great but when he was Anorak (his OASIS avatar) he sounded (and looked) a bit too much like the BFG from The BFG (whom he also plays) which took me out of the film a bit but overall the whole cast were great.
