Just seen the film 50/50. Don’t worry no spoilers but WOW, very impressed. I wanted to see this film and had a bit of expectation and it not only lived up to it but surpassed it as well, quite rare these days.
I think the main thing about the film is that it feels more ‘real’ than most, its doesn’t feel like a ‘concept’ they developed to get laughs or romantic set pieces, it flows more naturally together. Some of the laughs seem more funny because they have organically evolved from the situation, not from manipulation of the script to ‘get the laugh’ the seriousness of the piece feels genuine as well and so does the romantic element.
I was also very impressed with Seth Rogen’s role, he plays this very well, because i find him quite hit or miss in other titles. When i was at work i was talking to Graham and he said that this actually happened to Seth Rogen’s friends and he was playing the character with experience because it happened to him in real life.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt was very impressive, he keeps this up and he will be one to watch.
Overall very very solid movie, and as i was saying to someone, the budget of this compared to something like Tin Tin and its negligible, but outshines it in almost every way. . .because of the storyline (well not effects, but whats the point in them without story!)
