All kinds of Awesome! (spoilers)
This film is hilarious. It didn’t take itself too seriously which is uncommon for action films. (Before the film started, i saw the trailer for fast and Furious… 6. That’s ridiculous!)
The whole thing with the kid was great (however how come his mum never gave a comment as to how her son was keeping hold of an iron man suit :S.) Pepper Pots is the best. She should have a spin off of just her (but maybe not… that might Shrek-the-fourth the whole thing). And of course, RDJ, how can he… he is iron man. The reveal of the mandarin was very funny, and of course unexpected. Guy Pearce should have been in it more, cuz, it’s Guy Pearce. :)
How cool was the barrel of monkeys?! Wow! That was so cool.
However. It was a little too action film. There should have been more of him breaking down. For those of us who stayed until the end of the VERY long credit role (I swear there were a million people working on this film!) we saw that Tony was telling the story to Bruce banner (the Hulk / The Ruffalo) and I thought that was good, as he was talking to a doctor about it. However, Banner fell asleep and says he was the wrong kind of doctor etc.
Okay, so the end. I don’t think Pepper should have gotten rid of her cool new super power. (true, she was scared of hurting people and the such), but still. The main thing, however, How could he get rid of his Arc Reactor! That was what made him Iron Man!!! He used it to power his suits. However, Rhodes is able to have a suit which does not need one, so Tony may make more suits like that.
RDJ only signed up for Four Marvel films, and that’s the fourth. I am pretty sure he will return to do the Avenger 2. Hopefully. Anyway, this film was really cool, please see it.
I haven’t read this book by Meyer, so consequently I didn’t know anything about the story or the characters. The plot was interesting, the whole world being taken over and it’s only her and her brother until she gets captured… blah blah blah… I’m not going to repeat the whole story.
So she meets two boys, one from her past which Melanie loves; and Ian, the one Wanda falls for. The thing that annoyed me was that we didn’t really get to know the characters - bar Melanie. We’re only told a few details of each of the boys and not that much about Wanda - yeah, she’s been to loads of planets before, she’s lived many lives, but she doesn’t show any hint that any of them have affected her in any way. Ian: he tries to kill her; one glance and their in love. I admit, I was “team Ian” (mainly because Jake Abel…) but, neither boy had that great a character. What I mean, is that I didn’t connect to either of the boys, I didn’t find out about enough of their pasts or them personally for me like either of them that much. It’s a shame, because there are great actors in this film. Saiorse Ronan is amazing as Hanna and in the lovely bones, but I’m not sure this film showed off her skills in a great light.
Why is it that no story is able to kill off the main characters? It’s crazy, I know. But I’m tired of knowing that characters are going to all live, like the Hunger Games or the main three living in Harry Potter… I was disappointed, but in current teen fiction, authors seem unable to part with beloved characters, or causing emotional strain on the reader. (even more) If there are threats to the characters, it adds suspense and more of an emotional attachment to the book (/ film).
So this film was kind of enjoyable, a little lacking.
Oh goodness me… that film was emotional.
I wasn’t expecting a good film, and it wasn’t amazing, but it had impact and I connected with Charlie. Who knew Zac Efron was good? (Plus his hair holds magic qualities!) There may be a slight possibility that I am crushing… just a bit…
It was really sentimental and tear-worthy. It’s quite shocking but it does make the point about letting go. It’s hard, but we shouldn’t let it restrict us forever.
The kid (Sammy), I didn’t like him at all. I really didn’t like the actor and found the character really annoying.
There are twists and turns and a lot to over come. I really liked this film, and recommend it to for those who love sad romance films like I do.
Due to the incredibly large amount of hype this film has received of recent, I couldn’t help but be a little disappointed by it. I mean, it was quite good, but because of all the comments and the OH MY GOD THIS WAS AMAZING(!) shouts in my ears, I was expecting something a lot better. I’m not saying it was terrible, but I don’t want to see it again.
The singing was pretty good (from most people). Anne Hathaway lived up to the awesome of which she is. And the girl who played Eponine - Samantha Barks was brilliant! Eddie Redmayre was a bit suspect, as was Russel Crowe. As the musical is concerned, the writer obviously struggled for lyrics! Every time Javert was singing he states his name and asks people to remember him. Really funny, but completely not the point of the song.
Plus, no one had prepared me for sitting awkwardly (tall guy in front of me) for THREE HOURS!!! *to the tune of Do You hear the people sing sings: It went on and on and on! A-nd on and on and on etc*
It was lovely and sentimental, but it didn’t live up… My opinion is obviously not in the majority, but here it is.
(she is also ridiculously thin!)
Really Good. I was surprised actually. I mean, from the advert I thought it was going to be like another version of Step up or Glee, but it was really so much better.
True, the plot was a little sparse, but the characters were good. They were all different and individual. Good cast, of course. (Fat Amy - Rebel Wilson - is becoming a bit type cast…) Jesse was amazing! From the moment he sang Carry On My Wayward Son out of the car, I knew he was awesome!
Plus, there was reference to The Breakfast Club! I watched it on Tuesday and had sparkles in my eyes as it was referenced and “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”. Man, this was basically a film written for me.
The singing and songs were obviously good. Probably going to go and buy half the soundtrack right now. You do not know how hard it was for me to control my vocal chords and not sing during that film.
One of the negatives, though, was the commentators. I thought they were unnecessary and quite annoying.
I thought this film was going to be bad, but it was really good fun and leaves you in a really good mood.
I don’t know what it is about this film, but it leaves you feeling good and warm. I mean, the plot is basic and there are bad points, but I liked it.
I liked the main character, she was well played and I felt for her. The Geek was great. The love interest lacked a bit of substance, but was appealing to the eye.
It’s one of those films you have to watch before you die.
Nope… not for me.
The story sounds like a good book (I haven’t read it), but is did not make a good film. It was pure special effects. It was like handing the audience every single special effect technique ever on a plate. It was too much. I saw it in 2D (I like 2D), but it is unnecessary. Actually, making this film was unnecessary. I was bored throughout, I’m sorry to say. I wanted to enjoy myself, but… I couldn’t. I understand that the film is about the acceptance of how Pi has to live with the things he’s had to do to stay alive on this boat, but it was all a bit… unreal. I didn’t connect with Pi past or present. I’m not sure I liked the idea of picking and choosing sections from religions, either.
I did not like this film, and I came out of the cinema unsatisfied. You do not have my recommendation.
So good. Surprisingly so. The plot was brilliant. A man writing a screen play called ‘Seven Psychopaths’, and he meets these said psychopaths along the way. Now as it is about these kind of “Mafia Men”, there is violence and a bit of gore, but because the film was about that, it made sense and made up for the head shots (which there are a few, but not overly so).
What made the film was the depth of the characters. They were all different and all had more than one side to them. They really held their own it really, really worked. My favourite has to be Hans. Best. Really well acted, as well.
Fantastically filmed, I mean, it looks really good, and it’s done really well. Not really strictly scripted and ordinary panning of shots after emotional scene like all normal films. It was really good! So, I highly suggest you go to see this film on the big screen! It does make you think and it made me feel good. Brilliant.
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 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”
Typical teenage film, predictable story, obvious outcome, that kind of thing. I enjoyed it. It was funny and quite charming. The acting was pretty good. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Julia Stiles and Larisa Oleynik were really good! Heath Ledger was amazing. It was a fun film and enjoyable. Watch if in a girly mood.
