Fawlty Towers (1975)
One of the best British comedies ever made!!
The show only had 12 episodes, but every one of them is memorable. Each character has its own persona and individuality. Basil(John Cleese)a nerotic & unhappy with his life plays the manager and the owner of Fawlty Towers. His estranged wife Sybil(Prunella Scales),a bossy and domineering woman who dosen't really seem to even like her husband. The sensible waitress/maid named Polly(Connie Booth)is really the only person in the hotel who has the sense to do the right things at times and has to come up with the ideas to rescue Basil from situations(eg. Gourmet Night). To complete the line-up of the main characters of the show is the Spanish waiter Manuel(Andrew Sachs), he is of course slow, and dim-witted and to top that he hardly speaks any english!! Most of the good lines and the situations feature Basil Fawlty. One of Britain's most loved television character. This classic sitcom has great storylines,great scenarios and a great supporting cast!! Its a show which you can watch over and over again and still laugh out loud.
great fun, great action and johnny depp is great!!!!!
When i first saw the trailers of the film it looked O.K. I wasn't desperate to see it, but my best mate is in love with Orlando Bloom and so i went with her. This movie is not what i expected it to be. Yes it is a bit long and some scenes could of been cut, but the reason why i didn't go to the loo in the middle of the movie was because of Johnny Depp's character, Captain Jack Sparrow. He is probably my most favorite movie character since Maximus(Gladiator-Russell Crowe)appeared on our screens in 2000. Jack Sparrow is funny, drunk,(i think)and charasmatic and steals the show. I thought i would just be staring at Orlando bloom because he is so cute, but by the end of the movie i basically fell in love with Depp and his character. Orlando(Will Turner)i thought was alright, a bit soppy but i still think he is just about his good looks and not his acting ability i hate to say. Orlando's character is very one dimensional and he really only shone when he was interacting with Johnny Depp. Keira Knightley(Elizabeth Swann)played the girl of the film, not much to do, but argue, scream a bit and fall in love. Her role was quite boring and very predictable. I expexcted a bit more from Geoffrey Rush because i think he is an incredible actor, but he did pretty good especially in his sword fighting for a man his age! But Depp is the star of this movie and no-one can take that away from him. His facial expressions and actions cracked me up everytime. This is a great fun film for all ages, its got romance,comedy,action and Johnny Depp!! In the cinema for the past 2 years, we have been dominated with comic book movies, and sequels. Finally we can see something which is different and a lot of fun!! I mean what is so interesting about a man getting angry and turning green!!!!!
