Movie Magic Monday : March 2018

So this months Movie Magic post is a week late as I was in Amsterdam last week. You can read all about my trip there here.

I feel like i’m getting to the cinema less and less each month now as all my cinema buddies live in Birmingham. I’ve decided to start taking myself on cinema dates. I did it this month and actually really liked it, at first I felt a little weird about it but it’s a nice thing to do (may write a post about this sort of thing at some point if anyone would be interested).

Shape Of Water

I can see why it won an Oscar, it was very arty and well acted. Michael Shannon was creepy as fuck (the part with his fingers irked me out). Overall it wasn’t really my cup of tea, it was very odd in some places but I am glad I watched it. Was a bit much for me when she was having sex with fish man. I was so there for Octavia Spencer’s character and her asking how Elisa even had sex with the fish man (asking the right questions aye).

I, Tonya

I so agree with Alison Janney winning the Oscar for best supporting actress for her performance in this role. She was absolutely amazing. The whole cast was fantastic. Really enjoyed this film, a lot of interesting twists that kept you gripped to the story. I always love a ‘based on a true story’ film, find them so interesting. Margot Robbie was amazing playing Tonya, I felt for her so much watching this film. Definitely worth watching this film, I liked how they used a combination of ‘interviews’ with the cast in character and just back to the film telling the story. Was an interesting way to tell the story.

Game Over, Man

I know it’s not from the cinema but it was a new release on Netflix. Honestly my main thought after watching it was ‘I can’t believe I just wasted 2 hours on that shit’. The part with Shaggy was really funny (but that was in the trailer) and there were one or two parts that made me giggle but other than that I really didn’t rate it. It’s basically the typical like ‘lad’ film with a load of cheesy violence and penis humour.

Ready Player One

I absolutely loved this film. It was so exciting and so so visually appealing. The idea of virtual reality does freak me out a little but I think that’s what made me like the film more as I feel like in 10 years time virtual reality will be a massive thing. The story was really exciting and had a lot of twists and turns. As you can choose your avatar for the Oasis there were a lot of cameos in the film which was really fun. I won’t ruin it for you but you’ll definitely recognise a lot of characters. Such an exciting film that kept you really gripped in the story line. Definitely recommend this film, it’s something a bit different but very enjoyable. I’m definitely going to be watching this again, may even try it out in 4Dx as I think it would be a brilliant experience.

    You had a great run of films, and I definitely recommend “Love, Simon.” Smart, emotional and real…

    Love this! The shape of water seems so weird! And I am a bit on the fence about ready player one.. i thought the book was neat but i heard they changed quite a lot so i dont know if i’d like it as much. x

      It is very odd like can’t describe it really but just super creepy in some parts. Aw don’t blame you for that, the book is nearly always better than the film like hard to live up to it x

    I kinda want to go and see The Shape Of Water as a lot of people have recommended but it doesn’t seem like my type of film. I’ve heard great things about Love, Simon so I’ll have to go and see that!

      Yes that’s how I felt like so many people were talking about it! Like it was enjoyable just very strange! Me too, I can’t wait for it to come out here

    I watched Game Over, Man & I hated it! Too much violence & crude humor.
    I really want to see Ready Player One since it seems like a great movie & the same with Love, Simon!

      It was awful wasn’t it! I just thought it was so unfunny and cringeworthy! Yes you should go and see it, it’s so so cool and the graphics are fabulous!x

    I actually haven’t watch any of these, so thank you for this post. Now I have few movies to watch in next few days. xx

    Ohh I love a based on truth film, so I Tonya is on the list. I really want to see Ready Player One as well. Im like you, the idea feels so real to me, its a bit freaky. Iv just finished Orphan Black on Netflix and that freaked me a bit as I can imagine cloning becoming a reality. Scary! Good film choices as ever xx

      Yess I wanted to watch for ages and only got around to it this month but it’s worth a watch so let me know what you think! Yes 100%, feel like it’s only going to get realer too! Ooooo I haven’t seen that but may watch as i’ve heard amazing things! Ahh cloning really freaks me out too as I feel like could so easily happen. Thank you Kerry, thanks for the comment xx

    I wanna see Love, Simon too! I already chatted with you about Shape of Water so you know I felt the same about the film, I really agree with your I, Tonya review too and haven’t seen the other 2 so can’t comment! Xx
