La La Land

Wonderful. From the fabulous colour palette, through the homages to classic Hollywood movies, to the dream-like quality of the story, I loved this movie. Emma Stone is definitely the star of the show, with Ryan Gosling as her dapper support, … Continue reading

Captain America

Oh happy day!!!!!!! Finally, Captain America made it to Morris, mystifyingly after all the students have left town, so there won’t be much of a crowd at each show. (I just don’t understand that decision. There hasn’t exactly been the … Continue reading

Oz The Great and Powerful

Okayish. Yeah, there were problems but there were also highlights too. My two favourite characters were Finley (Zach Braff) and China Girl (Joey King). I’ve got to say I thought Zach Braff was great and I can’t say I’ve liked … Continue reading

Thor

Popcornalicious. This was an absolute hoot and exactly what was needed from a summer blockbuster: lots of energy, explody things, overthetopness, hot guys, and a complete lack of stick-up-arse, as they say in the vernacular. It made me laugh out … Continue reading

Prince of Persia

Hokum.  But deliciously fun hokum.  A pretty boy hero meets a spunky heroine and they do battle with a dastardly bad guy in a plot that makes absolutely no sense.  Gotta say Jake Gyllenhaal is seriously hot and buff and … Continue reading

Ramona and Beezus

Sweet.  It’s not often we get to see young interesting female leads in a movie made primarily for young girls so this was a real treat.  The plot isn’t particularly unexpected but did make me laugh quite frequently.  A very … Continue reading

Alice in Wonderland

Erratic. This was a little like a roller coaster ride, zooming up to brilliantly good and down to ditch water dull. Can’t recommend it really but there are some great little bits and pieces hidden along the way. The visuals … Continue reading

Iron Man 2

Dull. Yeah, so this was a huge disappointment and didn’t pass the WeatherGrrrl sleep test. Luckily I don’t live in the real world where ticket prices are obscene so my little nap didn’t cost the earth. Popcorn and soda were … Continue reading
