Film reviews

I’m watching the film Dorian Gray and I’m bored, it’s so slow, so I decided to while away the tedium and do some one line reviews of all the better films I’ve seen in the last couple of weeks:

Tangled – fun, I loved Rapunzel and her frying pan, but the love interest annoyed me a bit.

Blood on Satan’s Claw – the rape scene was unpleasant, but not quite as awful as I was expecting, otherwise it was actually a pretty good film.

Secret of Kells – I absolutely adored the quality animation and Aisling (and the cat) and I can’t think of anything negative to say about it.

Scott Pilgrim versus the World – the game aspect makes me smile every time, another film I adored.

ETA: Dorian Gray: ...snore... snore... Game of Thrones is way sexier than this... snore... ooh internet... snore ...Highgate!... snore... snore...

Is it the more recent Dorian Grey? I found that completely lacking in scary atmosphere!

Yes. It is also lacking in charm, interest or charisma. I did like the Highgate bit though.

I loved "Secret of Kells" - the story and the animation. Real, old-fashioned hand drawing! And I saw the book [or one of them] years ago when it was on a tour in the US.

I could have seen the book, but somehow we ended up doing something else.

I loved all the detail in the Secret of Kells; the repeated eye motif, the knotwork snowflakes, the straight lines of evil vikings, the scrolling fog!
