Sinemia Movies December 2018 Review
For yet another part of my coverage of the Sinemia movie subscription service I thought it might be neat to go over what I see in the month using it. Think of it as a review of what I viewed, typically scoring each movie and giving thoughts on this pass. For context the service I was given grants a two movie limit on my pass where I'm able to see a premium experience and a casual viewing. Each pass is different, but this is the one I was granted to provide coverage for.
It has continued to be a great option for viewing films and taken a bit of a financial load off of just going to movies I'd regularly check out. Keep in mind that this is from a Canadian perspective, but the pass does work basically the same no matter where you use it. The first film I viewed during the month of December was Holmes & Watson.
I went with the family for a standard viewing on Christmas Day as is tradition in the household. The film was awful and one of the worst I've ever seen. It should not have been given a theatrical release and was bad. It wasn't funny and did not deliver despite the strong duo it had. I gave this one a 3.2/10 which isn't the worst film score of the year on the site, but it is the lowest for anything that released in the theater that we scored.
The second film I watched was the best film I've viewed this year in the theaters, this was "The Favourite". It's a movie that's about two ladies competing with one another for the favor of the Queen. One has been a long time close friend whereas the other comes from nothing.
It's a beautiful and elegant experience featuring striking scenes. It was a lovely showcase of what makes films come across as art and the acting was stunning. I was very impressed with this one scoring it 10/10 which has been a rarity for movies thus far on the site. It's a great use of the pass as this wasn't something I'd normally see. It certainly offers fresh opportunities for trying something different.
Those are the movies I viewed in the last month, should be interesting to see what I view over a full year of it, for now check out our review of the service below and the Sinemia hub for additional coverage. There will be a fresh six month review in the near future.
