The Ricky Gervais Show (2010)
It's not very good (son of)
I read the title "Ricky Gervais Show" in my local TV listings and imagined that it might be more than bog-simple animation accomapanying pathetic ideas at humour. No such luck! I can clearly see why some in Britain wish all Essex-kind a grisly death for wasting British time, and this "show" is as clear a point as any in that determination. I should think a blow-by-blow dialogue as Ricky wipes his arse would be more amusing than the show under discussion, which lacks sophistication, cleverness, or any merit whatsoever. It is just like a bunch of losers in the pub amusing themselves in the corner in their dreams. Muppets!
The Emperor's New Clothes (2001)
Did not enjoy
Did not grab attention from outset and never recovered.
I think Ian Holm must have realised this was a challenging role, in acting two parts for a film centered on his characters.
It is a pity the story was so mediocre. We found it easy to ignore this film as it played.
It was simply not attention-grabbing, rather stulted and dull (possibly an effect of the soundtrack?) We were impressed by very good recording of rain-sound and of Holm's voice; were impressed by his performance and those of other actors.
I conclude that a historical fancy does not make entertainment necessarily. This is much too banal a film for my affection. I do not believe that anyone can be at fault for this but the storywriter(s).
