Movies: The Gentlemen, The Personal History of David Copperfield, Spies in Disguise

Movie 1: The Gentlemen

This latest film from Guy Ritchie is a Crime Action film set in the United Kingdom.  It is equally gritty, often violent, graphic and crude.  The scenes involving lots of children are brutal and difficult to watch.

To be frank, the entire film was difficult to watch.  It’s yet another film about illegal drug dealing by horrible people in horrid conditions simply trying to survive.


Movie 2: The Personal History of David Copperfield

One critic characterized this film as “both more or less than the original Charles Dickens story”.  It is exactly what the title of the film declares.  It’s a study of comedies based on the 1850 writings by Charles Dickens.

It’s intelligent, beautifully filmed with an excellent cast.  It is concurrently old fashioned and contemporary at the same time.  We thoroughly enjoyed it. 


Movie 3: Spies in Disguise

This is a clever computer animation film with unique characters, interesting concepts and some very funny episodes.  It’s the first Blue Sky Studios film and part of Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox.

Will Smith is the voice of the lead character.  It’s a funny, goofy, action packed story with a very funny pigeon.
