Craig's Movie Reviews

I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.

01) “12 Years A Slave”

Solomon Northup and his family.

Best Picture of the Year at the 2014 Oscars. I have to admit, the Academy got it right.

There’s not much I can really say about it that hasn’t already been said. The number of 5 star reviews on the poster alone was ridiculous. They even had one which read “The best movie ever”. That may be an overstatement.

I still think that this is one of the most important movies I have ever seen. It’s the first film about slavery that I’ve seen that really captured how awful it is. Go see it and if you cry, you’re not alone.

Thank you very much for reading. I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and are having a great New Year. I’m now running out of stupendous superlatives!
