The Last Film You Saw - 2015

Recommended Posts

I saw A Muppets Christmas Carol, directed by Brian Henson. It was good, I enjoyed it, I might watch it again in the future.

Great film :D.

 

A few days ago we watched Frozen. I liked it, it was good. I didn't think it was brilliant though, like all the Frozen merchandise in shops might make you believe (things like lunchboxes, mugs, etc). It was a nice film though, I did like it. I guess it's just, my brother had hyped it up by saying he really liked it and in that sense I was a little bit disappointed because usually musicals aren't totally my thing.

Olaf is the best. I absolutely adore him. I don't think it's an amazing film, I think it's one of the first Disney films in years that reaches a decent standard.

I thought musicals weren't my thing either, but I really like Singin' in the Rain, Moulin Rouge, and all the Disney movies.  I also did Into the Woods and Hello Dolly (the musicals) in high school.  I'm glad you didn't mind it so much, although, I agree, the hype is ridiculous.

 

Oh, Oh, Oh, I saw Mockingjay Part 2!!  :jump:

I loved Olaf!

I watched Elf tonight. I'd never seen it before because I'm not a big fan of Will Ferrell, but I'd heard good things about it so decided to give it a go. Surprisingly I enjoyed it.

Far from the madding crowd, last night.

 

This is the new one with Carey Mulligan yes? How was it?

Tremendous from beginning to end. It necessarily skips certain phases of the book, eg the fairground appearance, in disguise, of Troy, the nine months or more of misery for Bathsheba before the last events of the book, but yes, generally faithful in every way to a great great book.

I watched The Assassin, by Hou Hsiao-Hsien, it's beautiful and enigmatic like almost no other film. I'll need a second viewing to properly appreciate the story, I kept backtracking to identify characters and wasn't focused.

I watched the final Hunger Games film last weekend with my three kids aged 16,14 and 10, we all enjoyed it but I'm glad we're at the end of the trilogy now.

 

Last night we watched Jupiter Ascending, it was ok but far too many over the top battle scenes.

I am having to catch up with films and watched over the weekend The Quartet and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, found both films to be funny in parts.

 

I love Maggie Smith she is so funny and witty.

We had our annual viewing of Love Actually the other night.  I can't believe I didn't like it much the first time I watched it … it grows on me more each time I watch it now.  Funnily enough, Emma Freud (Richard Curtis' partner) wrote an article about her and Richard and two of their two children going to a midnight showing of the film in New York and the experience of watching it again.  Worth reading if you're a fan of the film … http://www.telegraph.co.uk/expat/expatlife/12049406/Emma-Freud-The-night-the-Curtis-family-watched-Love-Actually-in-New-York.html (she actually live tweeted it, then turned it into an article afterwards :D)

I am up to the last film of the MCU.   Just Age of Ultron left.  Watched Thor 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy last night.

 

Don't forget about Antman!

I last watched Bridge of Spies. Not my preferred type of film, but quite good. For Gilmore Girls fans, Headmaster Charleston was in it. :)

My two beautiful nieces are over from Australia for Christmas (their Mum & brother arrive next Monday). We had a mini film-fest yesterday with Inside Out (cute, and not at all what I had expected) and Guardians Of The Galaxy. 

 

I will state here and now that I officially adore the additional bonus song on the  Inside Out DVD, 'The Lava Song' :D

I saw Star Wars too this afternoon and completely agree that it was brilliant.

 

The next film I want to see is Carol.
