Went to see Sofia Coppola’s remake of The Beguiled tonight: lots of smouldering looks & southern gothic scenery.
Watched a Nina Simone documentary and played an album of hers this evening.
Saw this tonight & I won’t do a film review here, but definitely worth seeing on the big screen.
Went to see War for the Planet of the Apes tonight. I do like the Apes movies – it’s the best trilogy around
I watched this film the other night – it’s amazing, and has a cool soundtrack by Quincy Jones. So I picked up a cheap copy on eBay
Went to see Korean film The Handmaiden tonight. As with all Chan Wook Park films it was by turns beautiful, strange, disturbing and erm, a little rude.
Today was St David’s day and there were some special screenings of the documentary about Wales Euro championship adventure last summer. My daughter and I went to one and the film’s director and Chris Coleman were there to introduce it.
It was a lovely film that caught the joyful atmosphere about the team. It’s also an odd experience to sit in a cinema and see a film about your last summer. I couldn’t spot us in the fan zone or homecoming footage though. It’s a nice capture of a particular moment, one I can show the grandchildren one day…
I’m reading a lot of film industry books at the moment – this is Julia Phillips account. She was the producer of The Sting and it’s a fun account of the 70s/80s Hollywood era
I’ve bored people before about how much I like the movie Jaws. I hadn’t read the novel and someone got me this for my birthday. It’s definitely a case of the film being better than the book, but it’s interesting to read to discern the decisions they made to transform it into a great movie.
Went to see Taxi Driver at the cinema tonight, the first time I’d seen it on the big screen. My thoughts over on [url=http://edtechie.net/barracuda/classic/taxi-driver/]my film blog[/url].
