Watching the Kiera Knightley version of Pride and Prejudice is a bit like watching the Twilight version of Jane Austen. If you’ve ever wondered how bad it was possible to make a movie I recommend watching 1) Twilight movies 2) The Harry Potter movies 3) The 2005 Pride and Prejudice. This movie has apparently been […]Read more "Pride and Prejudice (2005)"
Tears and then more tears. I think we (all the fans) all turned into running faucets and spilling over bath tubs – oceans of salt water was slopping around. I loved the finale. I knew that the internet was not a safe place for me until I watched it . Spoilers would lurk everywhere, especially […]Read more "The Vampire Diaries-S8Ep16- Finale"
I couldn’t help a small,tiny, and very bleak chuckle as I wrote that title. The Vampire Diaries really does not let go even when it hit its low plot-less point.Kind of like a bad relationship, you just hung on to it and hoped your hopes would be rewarded when it got back to what you […]Read more "TVD 4Evr"
Very restrained telling of the fight by British women for the right to vote. Meryl Streep has a bit role as Emmeline Plankhurst. Carey Mulligan plays a laundry woman whose gradual political awakening occurs alongside the daily abuse she faces at the laundry, and the growing understanding that she has no legal rights over her […]Read more "Suffragette"
Leo DiCaprio doesn’t die this time. I think the man suffers from some kind of complex of grandeur. Why does he keep choosing roles that die encompassed by pointedly humble magnitude? He certainly seems to be under the impression that he can more than support the part of vulnerable, unlovable greatness. Think of his movie […]Read more "Thoughts on Leo in the times of The Revenant"
I’m hooked! Adam Driver as Kylo Ren is so jawdropping HOT! I hope the force is strong in this one, and that he winds up with Rey. I sense an angst filled movie times couple in the making. That last fight scene was awesome. I thought Daisey Ridley instilled it with so much unexpected raw […]Read more "The Force Awakens- and is unexpectedly goodlooking"
The Intern lacks a certain something. A certain…. Meryl-iness. In its tone we have observed a lack of Streep. Okay, so although Devil Wears Prada comparisons are inevitable… this movie is a cute movie. Anne Hathaway is nice… or at least her character allows her to be interesting. Although, by the way, the infantilisation of […]Read more "The Intern"
You know after watching the brilliance and the super connectedness of TVD S1-4 (it’s really very good you know, if you can watch the stilted, stiff necked, s*&% that is GoT you can watch the literary allusive-pop cultural reference laden dialogue, emotionally surcharged, epically [that’s kind of a TVD word ;)] soundtracked, sharply cast-ed, drama […]Read more "TVD marathon ( Yes I bought the box set!!)"
Interstellar is a great movie and also one with a disconcerting level of strangeness. We begin with a gravitational anomaly and end with time that can be experienced as a fifth dimension. At sixteen, I took logic and psychology as optionals, see. So like I said the movie begins *gravitational anomaly* and continues onto more […]Read more "Interstellar"
The trouble with Brendan Fraser is, I guess, that he doesn’t take himself very seriously. At least I don’t think he did in the past but may be he does now, I don’t know. I haven’t seen the The Nut Job yet but I’m looking forward to William Tell. Fingers crossed it will be a […]Read more "Fraser redux : Reviewing The Mummy in 2014"
