So it is that time again, to talk over a couple of the last films I have seen recently. I have a good selection of films here, some that were released last year & then some definite old ones that were released in 1989, 25 years ago & is still talked about now, which in my eyes are seen as a classic & of course have the great Tom Hanks – which is a golden icon in the Hollywood world. Then you have the 1996 The birdcage, which features some brilliant actors that are still making brilliant work now. You have a good selection of films that are all sorts of different kind of film & read more to find out all about them…
– Turner & Hooch (1989)
“A detective must adopt the dog of a dead man to help him find the murderer.”
For me when a film is talked about 25 years on, that is going to be a great & this film is. It is a Disney film & let’s be honest all Disney films are great in the film world. Then you have Tom Hanks & a lot of actors in this film that are brilliant & have done a lot of great work. This film did not disappoint & it was such an easy watch, it was Sunday afternoon which was a very chilled day, it was just the perfect kind of film that I would watch over & over again.
– About Time (2013)
“At the age of 21, Tim discovers he can travel in time and change what happens and has happened in his own life. His decision to make his world a better place by getting a girlfriend turns out not to be as easy as you might think.”
This film has been on my watch list for over a year & it did not disappoint. I love a good romance, especially when it is featured in a film, so just assumed it would be that & it wasn’t – it was so much more. I watched this film with my boyfriend & it made me so surprised, it was so much more than a romantic film & it was brilliant. My boyfriend who rarely mentions film, talked about this a couple of times the next day saying how good it was & how much it made you think. It was full of emotion & defiantly makes you think, how sacred time is – because it really is.
– A.C.O.D (2013)
“A grown man caught in the crossfire of his parents’ 15-year divorce discovers he was unknowingly part of a study on divorced children and is enlisted in a follow-up years later, which wreaks new havoc on his family.”
I remember seeing a trailer for this film & thinking that looks hilarious. It was stupidly funny & a great watch, with a hilarious cast but I was not a fan of the end, not sure if maybe I missed something but I am not a fan of the end being left on a cliffhanger, other than that it was a great, hilarious film!
– The Birdcage (1996)
“A gay cabaret owner and his drag queen companion agree to put up a false straight front so that their son can introduce them to his fiance’s right-wing moralistic parents.”
My boyfriend John introduced me to this film, he could not believe I had not watched it – it was brilliant! A great cast, a great story & full of humor. This film is a must see watch, it has a great cast that play their parts so well including Robin Williams, Gene Hackman, Nathan Lane, Dianne West, Dan Futterman, Calista Flockhart, Hank Azaria & so many more but you can see with this small list that this film is going to be brilliant. A must see film!
A good selection of brilliant films that are a blast from the past & some new ones that are brilliant. I would tell anyone to watch all of these films especially the older ones. Enjoy!
