Welcome to another edition of the “The Valero Verdict” movie review. In this I will give you a quick movie review with a couple of bullet points of which I either liked or disliked. I will end the review with rating of the movie and a short overall thoughts.
On the docket today, an Independent Film from Raspberry Films: Ann Rolls Green.
- Kayleigh-Paige Rees was a really good lead in this film. She fit the role of Ann perfect. I would love to see her branch out into bigger film roles.
- The colors of this film (as you can see above) were shot wonderfully. You don’t always see that in a film of this magnitude.
- The script was different and unique, I totally appreciate a writer/director willing to take a risk with a movie. It brings authenticity to an art that is stuck in remakes.
- The score was fun, I loved the music throughout and it really enhanced the film.
- “I just saw you chase a dancing apple through the forest with a toy sword”. I about spite out my drink when this line was read. Hilarious.
*** out of ***** gavels
The film is a whole lot of fun. I truly loved George Perry willing to take a risk with an interesting original story. (I mean a kid thinks he’s the next coming of Christ). Rees was impressive to me for the first time seeing her on-screen. My lone issue with the film was you weren’t sure what scenes to take serious or not. I felt like maybe I was laughing when I wasn’t supposed to and vice versa.
Should You See It?: Sure. It drops on Amazon Prime on June 7th. If you like independent fun films, you will really enjoy this film.
Special Thank you to Raspberry Films for letting me screen the film early.
