50/50

Hello

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!)

Twilight – Breaking Dawn

Hello – dont worry no spoilers

So I’e just been to see Twilight – Breaking Dawn part 1. Got back to work and was talking to Graham ( http://headfuzzbygrimboid.wordpress.com/ ) we were talking about the film and if i liked it or not and he asked “have you seen the third? . . the third ones real good” so i replied “Yeah this was the third. . its pretty good” . . . . “er no ben this is the forth” oh man this is like star wars all over again, but this time it my fault i dint see them in order haha. OK so this is the running order of how ive seen the films

number 2

number 1

number 4

I watched number 3 yestoday. “Didn’t you know what was going on Ben?” i did wonder what was happening sometimes, but i followed it pretty well i thought haha, so take note if you HAVE seen 1,2 and NOT 3, then your still good to go.

Well, anyways fours pretty good, best one i would say. Three is good but it seems that Jacob flys off the handle every minute then says “oh sorry”  then goes mental again. How about try and win her heart instead of moaning at her. Anyways going off in a tangent again..umm ok umm review,

IF YOU LIKE THE OTHERS, YOUR LIKE THIS ONE

done 🙂

Immortals 3D

Hello

Just been to see Immortals 3D. It had a very ‘300’ feeling, but this is how it was advertised, so i suppose in that respect, it lived up to its expectation. If you liked 300, your like this film. . .if you like fighting. . . alot, then your like this film. the story line i thought held together just enough to continue the fighting and it was generally fast paced.

What i thought was very good about the film as the 3D element. Now i dont really rate 3D in anyway, but this film, surprisingly done it very well. Afterwards it felt not like i had seen a ‘3D’ film but more that the 3D element just enhanced the film. It did not feel like the produceers thought ‘its 3D so make eveything come at you out of the screen’ and actually more subtle and complemented the film better. Basically I dint have a headache afterwards from the 3D.

Not the greatest film review of all time, but just a quick overview.

Thanks

Ben
