The Last Film You Saw - 2020

Recommended Posts

Well.. a new year, a new film topic!

 

I haven't seen any films in the past few weeks, because I haven't had enough energy to watch any.

 

Post about any film(s) you've seen recently that you feel like talking about.

As it's only just been released I've copied it over from 2019:

 

I saw Little Women on Sunday - I enjoyed it, but thought there was too much jumping back and forth between childhood and adulthood, I think anyone who doesn't know the story would be completely confused!  Beautifully filmed and acted though.

Blade Runner 2049

 

Second watch of this, having been given a copy at Christmas.

 

Bloody awesome!

 

A really good story that doesn't widdle all over the original, with fantastic visuals and an excellent score. Possibly one of the best sequels ever made. 

 

Why did I avoid it for so long?!

I went to watch Parasite last week just before the oscar win and it was every bit as good as I hoped it would be.

Went to see Emma with OH today. It's had mixed reviews, but we loved it. It's not  classical, but there's some real bite, and love the somewhat irreverent approach.  Anya Taylor-Joy is excellent, as are most of the women (although feel Jane Fairfax was a bit underused).  Men are fine, but several didn't quite fit the parts for me, especially Johnny Flynn, who played it well but was simply too young.  Loved Bill Nighy as Mr Woodhouse though.Sets, costumes etc were cracking (OH, a bit of a specialist, commented that for once the sewing looked genuinely hand-done). Not perfect, but I'd go and see it again tomorrow.

Alien: Covenant 

 

Not seen this before, but it was on Film 4 last night and in these days of Coronavirus when you are looking for a diversion...

 

Can easily be summarised as a poor remake of Aliens.  On the plus side, I do quite like Katherine Waterston, so it wasn't all bad.
