The Vicarious Movie-Going Thread

I used to go to the cinema in the UK several times a month (I had one of the monthly tickets) right up until we had our daughter, whereupon Mr RufusB and I solemnly cancelled our Direct Debits and joined Netflix and Amazon's postal DVD system. Then we moved here and don't have a babysitter so movie going is on hold for the time being. Anyway….


Until my next UK foray, I’m up to date on my Empire magazines so I wondered if anyone would like to post review of newW films they’ve seen in the last year or so.


I’ve seen six in the cinema since my daughter was born: Gravity, Battle of the Five Armies, Jurassic World, Into the Woods, Pitch Perfect and the truly horrendous Jupiter Ascending. The only way is up, is what I’m saying.


Regards,
Rufus


(Not sure what's happened to my fonts...)

Re: The Vicarious Movie-Going Thread

I haven't seen any of those films (though did see part of Jupiter Ascending when it was filmed in Ely Cathedral)...Bond is just too violent for me (I am an affirmed revolver wimp even if on his side) and the others passed in and out before I could be tempted. As part of "prescribed" therapy for depression and getting back to days with meaning, I have been going to the cinema with our 16-yr old. Two hours of escape in the darkness with a bucket of popcorn can work wonders sometimes.

We have seen one "children's" film (Lasse Maja, very Swedish) and a few others. My must-see recommendation is "Grandma" with Lily Tomlin. Suffragette is on the list for this week and soon-to-open Macbeth. A light but very enjoyable film IMO is "5 Flights Up" with Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton. Now that I've started going to the cinema again I find the desire rather insatiable. I remember seeing "All About my Mother" on my my first decadent foray out after birth of our 2nd child while OH stayed home - perfect brain food.

Enjoy the UK - live it up!

Just reread and see the UK trip is somewhat theoretical, but you can have fun planning

Hey


Not theoretical - I have tickets booked - but not for a few weeks yet. Taking my daughter to meet her brand new cousin.


Yeah - I find the cinema going things somewhat addictive too. I used to love it. Two hours where you can't answer the phone/stop halfway to wash up etc. Love it. Hope it's all going well.


I quite like a no-brain action film myself. Really looking forward to Star Wars (for I am a geek and proud...!)


Best
