I went to The Glass Menagerie at the Selwyn Theatre knowing three things about the production: it’s a play by Tennessee Williams; theatre doyenne Elizabeth Hawthorne was cast in it; it was potentially about hope.
This bloody movie. People have been full of opinions on Les Misérables since the movie came out, and even more so since it became a Golden Globe winner in three categories and Academy Award contender.
Having caught a few episodes of this show years ago, made me instantly want to check the whole series out when it came up on my review list.
Having just seen a show about the sinking of the famous German navel ship The Bismarck, which of course had a major focus on the British Royal Navy, made me suddenly more interested in this DVD that focused entirely on that arm of the English military force.
Over the years the word Bismarck is one I had heard often, but if push came to shove, I could only hazard a guess that it had something to do with a naval ship, but other than that, I’d be guessing wildly what it really meant to the history books.
It’s that time of year again, for the Best and Worst films of 2012 to be ranked! Like every year that I’ve done this, I only include films I saw on the big screen, as often that’s the best way to judge a film.
I went into 'The Hobbit' with very low expectations, and that was for many reasons. One, I just wasn't as excited about the whole thing as I was with the LOTR films. Second, there had been a lot of bad buzz around the films for so many reasons, especially with the 48FPS issue.
The best thing about documentaries is that it either is teaches you about something you didn’t already know, or concisely lays out a subject matter that you know about but in a way that still really perks your interest.
Sometimes with these DVD specials, they take such wide ranging and diverse episodes from various other TV series that yes they have a link in subject matter, but it can be argued that it’s tenuous at best.
