Happiness Never Comes Alone
Charming French rom-com. A jazz pianist who only has one night stands with women in their twenties, falls for a woman of 35 with two ex-husbands and three kids. It was really funny, with the running gag that she is incredibly clumsy. As Sacha is a jazz pianist, there wasn’t enough piano playing in the film. He was obviously very talented, but it wasn’t used enough.
The film is a french 15 meaning it is quite a risky 15, but I really enjoyed it and I recommend it for a very enjoyable watch.
Tears! Of course I cried near at the ending! Who wouldn’t be?
The main thing I didn’t like about this film was Seth Rogens character. Yeah. I found him annoying and horrible, really. All the characters were a bit one dimensional but that’s standard these days…
I’d been waiting to watch this film for a while, and I couldn’t help being slightly disappointed by it. The story’s a bit too vague and sparse and it wasn’t as funny as it thought it was. They could have done a better job with it. It’s good enough, but still…
So, my word of advice, don’t rush off to buy it, but if there is a choice of things to watch one day and it’s on the list, go for it! You might like it!
Gotta say, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I am surprised to say that it was pretty funny! (They have a program they watch together!!!) The acting was good, but who can fault Tom Hardy? The girl was kinda good - played by Reese Witherspoon - but I thinking she was lacking something. There was one thing I found annoying however SPOILER: she didn’t pick Tuck! He was always the better man! I understand that he was the only one with a “back-up girl” (if you will), but still….
I wouldn’t mind watching that again, and it’s one of those films that i think you just have to watch!
Film of the Year. This is one of the best films I have seen, probably ever. It’s about an unlikely friendship between a man who just got out of jail (Driss) and a rich man who is disabled from the neck down (Phillipe). Driss only applies for the job to care for Phillipe in order to be turned down to gain Benefits, but he gets chosen. Phillipe likes the fact that he hands him the phone because he forgets. What makes it even better, it’s a true story. What I’ve just described can sound a little… cheesy and cliched, but, it’s French, not Hollywood-ised. This means it’s not over the top, but subtle and charming. It does mean (for those of you who don’t like it for some reason) that it is subtitled. It will have you laughing your head out and crying silent tears. I heard people clapping at the end of it. It really is a heartfelt film that makes you feel great, really. Please go and see this film! It is just amazing and brilliant in every way.
A very smart film. However, I did find it quite a bit boring until the end. It may have been that I wasn’t in the right mood for it, but still…
It is a classic Christopher Nolan film, thrilling and just so clever. It was quite shocking at times, and if you’re a bird lover, brace yourself.
As I can’t stop mentioning, it was incredibly smart! It’s one of those films that you can go back and watch again and see the foreshadowing and parts that now properly make sense now that you’ve seen it before.
It is a good film, and I was surprised that I remembered parts of it, because I have no memory of watching it before. I think that now I’ve seen it (fully) I want to watch it again, just notice those little details.
A girl has had cancer for 14 years, and has now decided to stop the treatment. The film is about how she uses her last moments to the full and tries to do as much as she can as fast as she can.
I was surprised as to how good this film actually was. It had the perfect balance of comedy and sadness. For about a third of this film I was crying, and the majority of the rest I was laughing. It was hilariously funny.
The main character, Tessa (played by Dakota Fanning), well.. I quite liked her, because she was packed with snarky comments about the world and the people around her, and she was a nice person, I think. She was a no-nonsense person (kinda) and she wouldn’t take no for an answer. Dakota Fanning did pretty well as she did what was needed from her for the part, really, she could have been anyone. The same said about Jeremy Irvine. His character, Adam, I quite liked him as well, but found him a bit disappointing, really. He was the perfect boyfriend, and everything, but there was something missing. Maybe it was the acting, i don’t know.
The plot was great, well, predictable seeming as she has terminal cancer, but it was great. It wasn’t overly complicated, but the film drew you in so that it didn’t matter that nothing “Oh My God! I can’t believe that just happened” happened. It was simple and yet so affective.
I loved this film, and I really want to see it again, and no doubt I will. I suggest a female audience, because everyone in my cinema was female bar this one man who was brought by his wife. Bring a box of tissues. At the end of the film all you could hear were people sniffing or sobbing or gasping for breath through their sobs. Everyone in the cinema was crying (bar that man).
“Life Is A Series Of Moments”
I can’t even… Gosh this was good!
I really liked the second Batman film, and thought that this was going to go terribly bad, so wasn’t going to see it. What a mistake! This film was amazing and soo much better than i thought it would be!
All the acting was great, really. I thought that Anne Hathaway was going to ruin everything, but she surprised me. She was pretty good as Cat Woman. Tom Hardy was Amazing! There are so many big names in this film. I mean, everyone is really well known and… in Inception (bar a few).
The whole story was great. And I love the ending! Mind-flip! So good. I’m surprised by how much I loved this film! Please see it!!!
Astounding physical theatre! I always love a good show of physical theatre, and this was no exception.
Okay. My level of gymnastics is a forward roll, so I was mesmerized by the tricks and stunts this three-man, one-woman cast. There were all sorts of flips and tricks that went seamlessly into the next ones. They just kept going! One after the other after the other!
They also used ropes/fabric hanging from the top of the tent. You know, when they climb up and go into crazy positions and graceful tumbling down and just stopping before hitting the ground. Always entertaining. Also the use of a trapeze.
There was a lot of humour throughout the show, and a sort-of love story that was unfortunately one way.
The one thing I didn’t enjoy, though, was the nail and the hammer trick. The woman hammers a nail into her nose. I have never liked it and I don’t think it should have been in the show. It didn’t ruin it for me, but I didn’t like seeing it.
Despite this one thing, I loved this show! It was amazing and I wish I was that talented.
TJ Muller and the Dixie Six and an amazing Dixieland band that happened to be performing in the Meadows yesterday!
“We’re too cheap to get a venue, so we perform here whenever it’s sunny… so about once a year.”
It was great! The Band: Trumpet, cornet, double bass, guitar, trombone, washboard and voice. Wo doesn’t love Dixieland?
Plus! This group of people started to swing dance! Best free performance ever!
This lady walks up to a group of us, and gives us tickets to this for free… Sure!
The first half was really good and and really funny. Then it got quite inappropriate for a 14 year old, even though it says that is 14+.
It was a series of three stand-ups with a guest host - that night happened to be Marcel Lucont who was the best part! The first stand-up was a musical comedy act but Rachel something or other. That was really funny! She was really good. Next was Dan something or other. She was pretty great but only half, then second half was pretty bad, but hey. Last was this really bad man who just shouted and got angry for no reason and it wasn’t funny. Overall it was a pretty good show.
The acts change each night (I think) so it may be better then next night, or much worse. Who knows?
For a free show, it was a great night!
