Movie Review: The Snowman

Movie Review: #ThePromise

The Promise stuns us with its horrors, but bores us with its love triangle.
Review by Matt Cummings
With the world seemingly ready to fight another global campaign of death, The Promise comes along to remind us why war is so terrible. Its arrival this week shows us the personal cost of war, complete with all the horrors of genocide and the terrible atrocities which men are capable of producing.

The Armenian Mikael Boghosian (Oscar Isaac) is a kind and gentle man who yearns to learn medicine at a school in Constantinople so that he can help his small village improve their quality of life.

He meets the stunning dancer Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), whose fanciful air is immediately appealing to the lonely Mikael. But WWI is fast approaching, and soon Mikael, Ana, and all of Turkey witness a hor…

Seeing as many films as I do is many times a gamble that fails to pay off, but with The Lost City of Z it's a stirring reminder of why I signed up for this job.

Col. Percival Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) is a strong-willed and dedicated British Army officer who's sought to change his family's fortunes after his father's scandalous suicide.
