Favourite Movies are the movies I liked the most from last month, first time watches or rewatches.
It's not everyday that a sequel surpasses the original. Even if I didn't like the original film, there isn't still much to go with sequel except down, or so is the rule. But "Sing 2" seems to be more focused and musically-inclined than the first film, which was already a musically-inclined film but one that lacked the fun and criativity of this one. The new characters and the clear direction the film takes is sufficient enough to make it
a worthwhile and colourful show that doesn't rely just on "bright lights" to make everyone engaged in its story.
Definitely the kind of film that leaves me puzzled regarding my opinion towards it. There is a brilliant performance by Alex Pettyfer. There's something about his despair that is quite difficult to achieve, and also quite interesting to see. He plays a tortured youngster, having to deal with too much family drama coming from all sides. The film's direction is quite reserved but surprisingly it works.
