This weekend I’ve had the most packed weekend ever. And as the title suggests, yes three trips to the cinema this weekend, to watch three very different films. Just this weekend, a horror, an action comedy and a children’s film.
Friday night, I met up with my friend, I made whilst I worked in a cinema. We often watch horror movies in the cinema together, as we both love horror films. We watched The Grudge. A classic story, remade again. I love the Japanese original, so this was interesting. I found it to be a lot of gore, the story was well written but predictable, and maybe one two many jump scares. However in my opinion, I got most the way through the film, and I found myself thinking, please end. It was a little drawn out, but any horror film, Sam Raimi is associated with, is worth a watch, at least once in my opinion.
Saturday night, I watched The Gentleman. I never saw much about this beforehand, so went in completely blinded. I only knew there’d be good eye candy in it. Charlie Hunnam of course. If a film has the before mentioned celebrity in, I will watch it. That being said, this film wasn’t what I thought it was, but it was an excellent example of storytelling. But it’s not a film for today’s snowflake society. It did contain a lot of slurs, but it fitted the gritty feel of the movie. If they removed them, the movie would not be a good film. However, Hugh Grant should probably stick to romcoms. I would watch this again.
Sunday morning, I took my son, Jackson to watch a film containing his two favourite things: Race Cars and Paw Patrol. We watched Paw Patrol: Ready, Race, Rescue. This is definitely a good day out, with children. It’s not too long a movie, just a slightly longer paw patrol episode really. It also comes with a sneak peak of a new series which will be starting on the Nick Jr channel.
Have you been watching any films this weekend? I’d love to hear about them, via social media. I’m always looking for Netflix movie recommendations also. Thank you for reading and supporting my blog.
