Here’s my latest review for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
WHAT I LIKE?
Yes, the title of this blog is right. After The Martian, I will have to give The Space between us the title of the lightest space-inspired movie to date. This romantic and dramatic film catches so many emotions. The film will inspire you, make you fall in love and send a pinch in your heart. Its unique love story was well-executed and it was well-justified until the end. It started on a space mission setting and it beautifully set the mood right until the climax. I am impressed with the Production design especially during their space mission and their stay in Mars itself. Not too keen about space technicalities but I believe they have done it right. Loved how the director utilized the character on earth as well. Their engaging conversations and simple scenarios got me. I loved their locations too. The plot was laid well. Conflicts were also right with its slow phasing as a whole. The film’s strength lies with Asa Butterfield who effectively portrayed a naive teenager setting foot on earth. He was just lovable, charming and talented. The supporting casts were also good. It was an over-all feel-good movie that will inspire you and make you smile from beginnning to end.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
Naaah! I love Asa Butterfield. That’s all.
