What We Did on Our Holiday (2014)
Not what I expected...
Now I'll admit, the main reason I went to see this movie was for David Tennant. I was never a fan of Outnumbered. Children in comedy usually makes me cringe. USUALLY.
But this movie was almost in 2 halves. For me, the first half was funny, charming, I didn't even want to throttle the kids. Tennant was lovely, Pike was lovely, Miller was lovely, Connolly was lovely. The relationship between the kids, Lottie especially, and Gordy was lovely. I really liked how it was portrayed. The way she talked with her grandad. BUT shortly after that it lost me.
It was not the heart warmer all the reviews were promising. And I wouldn't call it hilarious. It was funny, but most of the funniest parts were in the trailer. The trailer and reviews don't properly prepare you for this movie. (And the plot description on IMDb was different when I last looked, it didn't say that...) And what makes me wonder more if the people in the cinema who were laughing at what I thought were rather inappropriate moments... My father who saw it with me agrees with me on this, he was silent in these moments too, and couldn't understand why you'd laugh at such a thing...
I wanted so much to like it. But I left the cinema down and disappointed. Not even the final scene could shift my mood by that point.
Doctor Who: Midnight (2008)
One of the best!
Seriously, ignore carrotjuicer3000's review. This is one of the best episodes of season 4, maybe of the whole series. It's suspenseful, its well written, its just....eerie. Just because its a standalone episode doesn't mean its not just as good as others. And not every episode needs comic relief, specially not one like this. So Tate is not missed. She gets the next few episodes focused on her anyways.
Lesley Sharp is fantastic in her role, marvellously creepy... Tennant is brilliant as always. The supporting cast is fantastic too, which includes Colin Morgan(Merlin).
Once you start watching this episode, you literally can't stop. Every time I've seen it repeated on BBC3, and skipped over the channel, at any point during the episode, I'd have to continue watching. Who'd a thunk an episode set in one room would be so brilliant? It's simply....molto bene.
