4,3,2,1 movie review

So, I watched 4,3,2,1 last night. Noel Clarke wrote and co-directed this movie with Mark Davis and it stars Emma Roberts, Tamsin Egerton, Ophelia Lovibond and Shanika Warren-Markland as 4 friends that find themselves mixed up in a diamond theft.

The film is fun in parts but overlong, it could have been at least 15 minutes shorter and not suffered. Even a cameo from Silent Bob himself (Kevin Smith for the uninformed) didn’t manage to raise this movie to greater heights. The girls acting isn’t the best and I think they were cast based on looks alone. Especially so for Miss Egerton who is pure eye candy to the point of distraction.

Stick with Kidulthood and Adulthood if you want to see Noel Clarke at his best ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m giving this a 6 out of 10

Tony Curtis. RIP

The great Tony Curtis has passed away at the age of 85 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I always loved his line ‘The ship is in ship-shape shape.’ ๐Ÿ™‚

Sally Menke. RIP

Sally Menke was found dead in Los Angeles yesterday.ย 

She will be best known as Quentin Tarantino’s long time editor.ย  My fave work of hers was the amazing editing she did on Oliver Stone’s Heaven & Earth.

OMG! How excited are you by this?

The new trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 1)

Looks stunning. Roll on November ๐Ÿ™‚

‘Get him to the Greek’ movie review

I have just endured the latest Russell Brand movie ‘Get Him To The Greek’.

It takes the character of Aldous Snow who we first met in the movie ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ and goes nowhere with it.

Whilst Forgetting Sarah Marshall was a funny movie, thanks largely to the talents of Kristen Bell and a good script by Jason Segel, Get Him To The Greek has neither of those going for it.

Yes, Segel co-wrote this movie but it lacks the polish of the first movie.

Jonah Hill who was awesome in Superbad and showed promise in Funny People and The Invention of Lying seems as if he couldn’t be assed with this and was justย there to pick up a (no doubt obscene) pay cheque and the same goes for Brand who seems to be playing a parody of himself and not liking it very much!

In short, I thought it was overlong and uninspiring and I do not recommend you bother with it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
