“What…?” do I hear you ask “…is she talking about?” Well, I do realise that I’m behind with my movie reviews, but I have still been going along for my Sunday night visits & have to say that it’s probably because the films we’ve chosen lately seem to be sub-standard (that’s only in my opinion of course!!) that I’ve not been in a hurry to talk about them!!
But!! This weekend I had a really weird experience!
From the start it was filmed in a style that made you think the camera man was using a hand held cam-corder. I do appreciate that this gave it an edgy feel, as if we the viewers were actually there in the scene ourselves, but it meant that everything was totally in-your-face & in & out of focus as the camera swept back & forth!
About ten minutes in I started to feel really nauseous & had to leave the room to go & get some fresh air & splash my face with cold water!!!! I returned & we moved to the very back row of seats, but I lasted only another five minutes before feeling really dizzy & very sick!!! So I never got to see ‘Fair Game’…I’m sure it was a real thrill ride…I certainly felt as if I’d been on a roller-coaster!!
Have you ever experienced anything like this? It took a full 48 hours before I felt back to normal!!
So, while I’m on the subject of Cinema…Our previous two films were at opposite ends of the spectrum…Firstly ‘Never Let Me Go’ which has a great cast & from the trailer, & not having read the book, we took to be a story about three friends who were at boarding school as children, following them into adulthood! WRONG!!! It is all about a world where children are ‘created’ (cloned?) & raised in homes solely for the purpose of being organ donors!! What an awful concept!!
No amount of brilliant acting could get me past the horror of the subject! If you are in any way feeling depressed, watching this film will completely finish you off!!
On a slightly happier note….the third film was ‘Just Go With It’ starring Jennifer Aniston & Ben Stiller. I am pleased to report that this one put us back on track as far as enjoyment is concerned! A lovely feel good storyline with a few very silly & to be honest, a bit predictable moments!
Nicole Kidman pops up in the middle which took me by surprise as I didn’t see her name on the poster!!
A nice ‘warm & fuzzy’ ending & I left the cinema feeling fine!!!
…& now a bit of scrappiness! I have been taking part in the ‘Glee Club’ contest over at ‘Soul Scrappers’ & will admit to cheating (but it’s allowed!!) inasmuch as I have been using my LO’s from Dixie Pieces Glee Club contest back in 2010!! But the latest challenge was an added genre…Soul Music! No surprise there!!!
I used that as my starting point (I remember decorating the covers of my school work books with these kind of designs back in the ‘70’s!!)
I chose photo’s of Nathan performing definitely ‘High Energy’ stunts on his scooter & came up with this….
This one was fun to do!! I found that perfect B&W word border on a sticker sheet that has been in my stash since 2008!!! It has words like ‘Funky, Energetic & Groovy!!! Absolutely right for the ‘Soul’ genre!!!
That’s it for this time!! Thanks for stopping by…can you believe it’s Wednesday already, we’re on the downhill run to the weekend…have a great rest of the week! :)
