I managed to get a head start to the Cary Grant week on Sky Movies, as “Charade” is on anytime TV so it made for a good movie to watch when I woke up early on a Sunday morning. It was very charming and funny, no I am not just talking about Cary Grant I am referring to the whole movie.
Eventually after what has felt like forever, Heath Ledger’s final role (although uncompleted) has eventually been released and I have just returned from a showing tonight (edit. I started the review when I first got back). I really have no idea where to start in this review as there really is so much to cover and say about this movie. I really do think it will need a few viewings to really see everything it has to offer as so much goes on and quite a lot of information to take in for each of the characters stories.
Last night after hearing the news of Patrick Swayze’s passing, I just had to watch “Ghost”. Ok so it was going to “Ghost” followed by “Dirty Dancing” but I had not long ago watched that. So decided to just focus on “Ghost”. With the famous pottery scene, unchained melody and Whoopi Goldberg winning an Oscar in the Supporting Actress role.
I did not go to see this film at the cinema when it came out last year, which was probably a good thing. I did hear quite a bit about this film whilst it was on release but not really many positive reviews or views on the film. But despite all of that or more so to see if it lived up to the bad reviews it received. In that respect, the reviews were right as this really was not a very good, but I suppose the best word to describe this film as to be pointless. I could not help but to compare it to “The Invasion”, as that was pretty pointless as well with a very sudden ending.
When you see Al Pacino’s name above the title of a film you really do expect it to be something special or at least good right? Of course he has built up a fantastic reputation for himself over the years. But 88 Minutes while he is decent, it really lacks something. What annoyed me the most in this film was the constant phone calls, it was like i’ll call you back then his phone ringing. Just shows how technology can ruin the movies too! While watching I thought Orange had eventually go there wish and a movie revolved around mobile phone conversations. (UK cinema-goers will get this, because of the adverts on before the film starts).
Before I even start this review I must make it clear that I have not seen the original movie with Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier.
I have just watched this movie for the first time (after actually wanting to see it for a while, as I am a big Kevin Costner fan, yes a big fan thats right).
So I had seen the trailer for this movie a few times, but other than the prediction for the end of the world and all the events which a lot of people died the dates had been written down for hence the whole end of the world . . . as guess what??? The numbers ran out . . .
