MovieViews


The MovieMuse Reviews (MovieViews) database is a searchable collection of films that the team have watched. It provides a link to an in-depth review or a short opinion on the film and a rating, as well as a link to the film’s poster or DVD cover. Over time this will build into a comprehensive guide about what to watch and what to avoid.

You can search and sort the list by individual film names, genre, reviewer, score and other variables to inform you on whether a film is worth your time, or to inspire you for your next movie night.

We will also use the database to create periodic lists of the recommended films in all sorts of categories. These lists will be shared on the website and some will even come with a video.

Frozen 2013 Animation, Family, Fantasy Another tale of girl power where the female lead doesn't need a prince to save her. A modern classic that is so much better now the hype around the songs has died down. 4
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 1937 Animation, Family, Fantasy Musical tastes were very different in the 1930s and that unfortunately makes it hard to watch Snow White for anything more than the Dwarves and the Hi Ho song. 2.5
The Princess and the Frog 2009 Animation, Family, Fantasy Tiana is a fine addition to the princess fold in a tale of following your dream and being true to your word. 1920s New Orleans is a great setting and the songs and characters stand up strong against most other Disney efforts. 3.5
Moana 2016 Animation, Family, Fantasy Despite some disappointingly western pop songs, the film is well cast and pays respect to the Polynesian setting. With plenty of laughs and adventure Moana is the best of the 'ethnic' Princess movies. 3.5
Beauty and the Beast 1991 Animation, Family, Fantasy After 2 failed attempts Disney got 3rd time lucky with this fantastic animated musical that pairs tradional looking 2D animation with full on 3D CG work culminating in the infamous ballroom scene. 4
Cinderella 1950 Animation, Family, Fantasy One of the best classic Disney Princess films. The stepmother may be a little sinister for some, but it is a well told, well known fairytale that will appeal to children of all ages.. 3.5
Aladdin 1992 Animation, Family, Fantasy A dark tale that will probably not hold up to well with modern kids beyond Robin Williams' wacky performance as the genie. 3
Gemini Man 2019 Action When a jaded black ops Will Smith wants to retire, the government send a weaponised Fresh Prince to hunt him down. A gratuitously average film that fails to shine via effects, CGI, acting, script and score. 2.5
Le Mans '66 2019 Biopic, Drama Billed as Ford vs Ferrari, this 'based on a' true story is more Ford vs Ford. Great performances anda beautiful 70s sheen make it a very easy watch (once you get over Bale's dodgy accent). 4
Frozen II 2019 Animation, Family, Fantasy The songs may not be as catchy and the story is a little convoluted, But Frozen 2 is another fine entry into Disney's girl power catalogue. 3.5
Angel Has Fallen 2019 Action, Thriller Gerard Butler is a one man world saver (again). Certainly not the worst film in the series, but it has all been done better elsewhere and some of the tech is quite laughable. Hopefully all thefalling is now finished! 3
Hustlers 2019 Biopic, Crime, Drama The 'interview' segments in this Stipper's revenge drama really don't work and despite a couple of good performances, there is little of note in the script or in fact in the true story that it comes from. 3
The Grinch 2018 Animation, Comedy, Family Despite some token hip-hop that feels out of place, this retelling of the Dr Seuss classic does easilly as good a job as the live action alternative. 3.5
John Wick : Chapter 3 - Parabellum 2019 Action, Crime, Thriller Feeling a little too much like a greatest hits collection of ight sequences, Parabellum is a lot of fun, but aso slightly disappointing. 3
Ray & Liz 2018 Drama A powerful yet depressing look at poverty within a failing family during during the height of Thatcher's Britain. 3.5
Olaf's Frozen Adventure 2017 Animation, Family, Short Animated to the same standards of the theatrical film it followed and a worthwhile addition to the Frozen lore. 3.5
In Fabric 2018 Comedy, Horror A wonderfully odd tale of a demonic red dress that terrorises each new owner. A real gem for fans of quirky British cinema. 4
Abominable 2019 Adventure, Animation, Family Despite an very odd looking Yeti character, Abominable is quite a nice and inoffensive tale with a conservationist slant. 3.5
Blinded by the Light 2019 Comedy, Drama, Music A Pakistani Adrian Mole finds a way out of his humdrum existence through the music of Bruce Springsteen. An unlikely true story that goes nowhere, but entertains all the same. 3.5
Trolls 2016 Adventure, Animation, Comedy Beautifully animated product placement for Justin Timberlake that is often fun but never that funny. 3
Berberian Sound Studio 2012 Horror A British sound engineer travels to Rome to work on an Italian Horror film in this wonderfully indulgent audiophile extravaganza. 3.5
Die Hard 2 1990 Action, Thriller While it never reaches the balls-out heights of the original movie, Die Harder is more than just a cheap re-tread as Christmas killjoy terrorists this time take over an airport. 3.5
Katalin Varga 2009 Drama A stunningly shot revenge drama is a feast for they eyes that despite its subject matter could be an advert for the Romanian countryside. 3.5
Jojo Rabbit 2019 Comedy, Drama, War Whilst not up with his best films (like Hunt for the Wilderpeople), this satire of a very touchy subject is touching and often funny. 3.5
X-Men: Dark Phoenix 2019 Action, Adventure A film almost completely devoid of value, it is a pointless entry into the X-Men franchise and showcases the worst effects, acting and script that Marvel has produced in 20 years. 2
