Although this may not tickle the fancy of non-Brits, Valiant is a
light-hearted comical little tale (it's quite short) of an even littler
pigeon with a big personality who wants to be in the RHSP as a wartime
carrier pigeon. The characters are well defined and work together well
with a generously simple plot. Bugsy (Ricky Gervais) is hilarious and
most of the voices provided were perfect, although it would have been
better if I didn't have a constant mental image of the actors while
looking at their animated aliases.
Occasionally there are moments of dialogue or actions that are quite obviously meant to be funny and aren't but these are generally glazed over by silliness. A must-see for animation fans/Brits, but perhaps more laughable for the younger generation among us.
One of the most beautiful films I have ever seen, Dear Frankie is a
true hidden gem without the glossy cloak of stardust that you get with
so many films. It's definitely in among my favourites.
It has a unique and thoughtful storyline that is portrayed by the perfect combination of actors. There are no superstars or big names, just a group of people who want to make a film that pulls heartstrings which it does successfully. Dear Frankie gives you that rare feeling of sadness and happiness which is hard to forget.
It was a true masterpiece, the most near-perfect film that I have ever come across.It was the only film to ever bring tears to my eyes, which is quite a feat.
