★★
I couldn't believe what I saw in this film. A boot camp or a music school? It's a poorly written, unrealistic story, but the cinematography and editing are well-made. This film is one of the top-rated films and won 3 Oscars. So, see it for yourself, and if you think this is a piece of claptrap, you're not alone.
All Is LostAll Is Lost
★★★
A solo character with no dialogue makes this film distinctive. It's a slow film, but it's engrossing and watchable. However, some may have found this is not entertaining because of the film style that differs from what people usually see in cinemas.

I love the folk songs in this film, but unfortunately, the rest of the film is underwhelming and dull. I'm surprised IMDb rated 7.5/10, and this film was nominated for 2 Oscars. This is definitely not my cup of tea as the story didn't go anywhere.
In the Heart of the SeaIn the Heart of the Sea
★★★
This adventure film told an appealing tale of a whaling ship and its crew. I hate the way how it narrates the story, but the visual effects are what I enjoy watching this film.

★★★
This is a character-driven film, but the plot is also powerful. I've often met such people in the past, so I understand their emotions very well. This film is a good watch as the story told with beautiful cinematography.

★★★★
This fantastic musical film I'll be remembered for forever! The charismatic performance of Yul Brynner is splendid. This is one of the films I would enjoy watching again and again.

★★
This is just a typical action/thriller film. I agree with what the other reviews say - the film is "poorly scripted", "workman-like action choreography", and "by-the-numbers plot", though it's not too bad to watch.
