Jane Eyre (1943)
My first Jane Eyre
This is the first version of Jane Eyre I ever saw, I must have been about 8 years old and fell in love with it immediately. As an adult I have been trying to get hold of it on DVD with no luck, just by chance the other morning it came on to an old movies sky channel and I was able to see it again.
It was more beautiful than I remembered it, the images created using only black and white film are amazing, beautiful if not a little depressing in places it captures the mood of the book perfectly. I love Joan Fontain but her hair annoyed me throughout, a sort of mixture of the fashion of the day (1944) and the era (1830's).
Orson Welles I think was the perfect Mr Rochester, moody, changeable, abrupt yet kind and strong. He was also striking to look at but not handsome, just like the Mr Rochester of the book.
The film does leave out some the story, there is no St John for example or her new found family, but it is a film not a mini series and does well to capture the main arks of the story.
Manhunt for Claude Dallas (1986)
Not the most thrilling
I saw this movie about ten years ago on TV and I was very excited as I was and still am a huge Brent Spiner fan. Overall the film is a little unmemorable.
You do feel for the main character who just wants to be left alone to live in the wild and who gets himself in terrible trouble with the law. Brent plays Bob, a friend who tries to help Claude out.
Overall, I have it on tape and would only watch it again to see Brent Spiners scenes.
There were some recognizable faces in the cast, and it does pass for a good true story, I like stories based on reality.
I am 25 years old and I first saw this film when I was about 8. I have a wonderful memory for songs and lyrics and I can still remember (even though I haven't seen it for 15 years) all of them.
Goodbye my lady love, Honeymoon, Hello my baby, Be sweet to me kid, and of course I wonder who's kissing her now. I am desperate to see this again, my Nan is gone from us now and I used to watch it with her and perform the songs for her in fancy dress. Well it was lovely.
June Havers was so lovely and the film was light and easy to watch. A very cute little love story with wonderful music, I have seen a lot of musicals and no others have stuck in my head as much.
Please if anyone hears anything please post here.
Jumpin' at the Boneyard (1992)
Not the most exciting movie ever but still worth watching
A previous reviewer was right, this would make a great stage play. I enjoyed the film but there wasn't very much going on. Tom Roth was wonderful and makes the film worth watching, Alexis Arquette is new to me but I thought he gave a good performance overall. Any Tim Roth fans should definitely put this one on their list.
If you don't like Tim Roth (strange) I believe that this film doesn't have enough going for it to keep you interested.
Basic Plot: Two brothers, one an addict the other a screw-up, and his battle to save his brother.
Be prepared for a very very sad ending.
Wow, this blew me away
I went to a lot of trouble to see this film. As it has not been released yet on Region 2 I had to order it from America and buy a conversion disc for my PS2. It was all so worth it.
I admit that I was a fan of Tim Roth's before I saw this film, but now I am truly besotted. You never feel as if he is acting his part, it feels so true and real. There is no over dramatisation just truth and passion.
The chemistry between Julia and Tim is perfect for the believability of the story, why else would a professional woman have sex with a con in a public convenience, unless the heat between them was so intense nothing else mattered.
I love this film and I will be watching it most nights for a long time to come.
