Summer Films

OK, to save us all going to turkeys, it would be nice if members could report back on films they have seen.

So far for me:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 - 11/10

Captain America - 10/10 (but make sure you stay and watch the credits through!)

Would you consider...

Including a brief review as well as just reporting the titles of the films you see?  For me, that would really make for a great discussion, and a resource too.  For instance, I am in two minds about paying to go and see the last HP in the cinema.  I expect the effects to be good, but I don't want to be disappointed with them or the story seeing as it is the last film.  A brief review from you might help sway me and other members.  What do you think?

Becky, a good idea, but, a) depends on time to write a review, and b) worried about spoiling the plot.

With regards films like HP, I have never been one to compare the book and the film. I view each as separate stories that happen to have the same characters.

Obviously there is far too much in the book to be reproduced faithfully in film, plus the impracticalities of translating fictional "magical" effects to "real life", but I think all the major events were handled brilliantly.

There were two bits that I was slightly disappointed in, but I won't discuss these until you see it, which you must :o). If you don't get a lump in your throat at the least you are not human! The two bits don't detract from the brilliance of the film.

 

Captain America was just a high quality fast moving action romp which if you like the films of the Marvel comics you will love, possibly the best one so far.

Heart made of stone?

I'm afraid I am known as being made of stone. I can watch those heart-wrenching documentaries and very rarely find myself moved.  But I will try and get out to see the HP film upon your recommendation.

Come to think of it, I think the last film I saw was the previous HP, I took my niece. Can't remember having been to the cinema since.  I've also had Bridesmaids recommended to me, although not sure I need to see that on the big screen.

Movie Reviews?

Sorry but I can't help but plug a site I often write movie reviews and some articles for.

Check out www.moo-vfarm.com

If there are any reviews on there you think are missing let me know and I will see what I can do.
