An interesting tale of Churchill becoming Prime Minister and his securing of his position within the first month. It was difficult to understand Churchill at a number of points, which I get that he talked like that, but it makes it difficult to understand what is going on. Also, the movie wanders at points, focusing on characters that don't really have a role in the movie, like his assistant. Als... read more

Churchill, his witt and his whisky state of mind, is a common place. Awful ending with the people in the subway; but some fine moments when he doubts and hesitates and has to listen to Chamberlain (very good Ronald Pickup) and Halifax.

Darkest Hour

You can take one look at the trailer or promotional materials and know exactly what type of movie Darkest Hour is. Handsomely mounted in that generic prestige way, it exists merely as a vehicle for a great actor to give a commendable performance as a real life figure and clean up at awards season. There’s nothing much original here, and a creepy sense of déjà vu does sneak in. if you think you... read more

2017 Films - Best to Worst (75 movies items)

" Darkest Hour is the Gary Oldman show. It's a film that feels like its only existence is for Gary Oldman to finally get himself an Academy Award. His performance is worthy of one. He completely vanishes in the role of Winston Churchill, and his performance is masterful (and so is the make-up that has aided in transforming him). The film itself is fine. It's certainly well-made, even if it doesn't really do anything to distinguish itself from all the other World War II biopics that exists. There"

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, the first tricky thing with this movie was that even though you see Winston Churchill struggling, we all know that he would eventually prevail and become one of the most famous British Prime Ministers. Eventually, somehow, even if we already knew the outcome, the makers still had to manage to make the story either entertaining or interesting enough. I have to admit that, since I’m half-French half-Dutch, I have always been intrigued by the history of Great Britain during WWII since this country had such a vastly different experience of this war than France and the Netherlands. Still, even though it might seem that the whole thing was historically accurate, actually, half of it was pret” read more
