Sunshine on Leith (2013)
An absolutely fantastic feel good film!
Just before I give my opinion on this film, I will say I am born in Scotland, and I am so happy a decent big budget type film has been made up here. This film is just simply fantastic, great songs (well of course, its The Proclaimers), very catchy and an overall great story. Fun to spot famous locations too, some parts filmed in Glasgow too, like the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and some of the pubs. It will definitely get the tourists into Scotland thats for sure! The acting is great and the singing is excellent. Also there is a nice little cameo from the famous duo which was great
Just watch it and you will not be disappointed!
Possibly the best film ever made! No Spoilers.
I remember the first time watching this film (as I write this I am listening to Bernard Herrmanns wonderful score for the film), best Saturday night movie ever! Lights all turned off to add to the suspense. Its one of those films you can only really see once, but I have watched it more than 10 times! I think that the music for this film is amazing, from the opening credits to the infamous "Shower Scene". Obviously I would say it was Hitchcock's best (as a lot of people would agree) and the casting choice is brilliant, unlike the 1998 'disasterpiece' with Vince Vaugh as Norman Bates(seriously?!). Anthony Perkins has got to be one of the greatest movie villains ever! I cannot recommend this film enough! It is just a masterpiece of cinema and every single person on this planet should see it!
P.S. Make sure it is the 1960 version you watch and NOT the 1998 remake!
The Laurel-Hardy Murder Case (1930)
One of their best!
One of my favourite's of their shorts. I actually found this short pretty creepy not only as a 8 year old but still now at 16, like the scenes with the butler and the chair. The gags are pretty good as well like the bat under the sheets. The plot involves Stan and Ollie paying a visit to the home of Stan's distant relative; the great Ebenezeer Laurel to hear the reading of his will. What they don't realise is that the Ebenezeer was murdered. At the house L&H are forced to stay by a pretty grumpy detective as he suspects one of the relatives to be responsible and the plot carries on from that. Overall a great spoof on the 'old dark house' genre and definitely a must for not only L&H fans but of the classic horror/mystery genre.
The Woman in Black (2012)
Will be remembered forever!
I went to see this film with my friends. To start the Hammer logo fills the screen with numerous posters from their classic horror films. This really delighted me. The film provided many, sometimes unintentional jump scares, the whole audience screaming at the sudden burst of a tap, spewing out mud. There are many creepy scenes in which the camera is focused on Radcliffe but there isn't much going on which adds to the mystery of, is the Woman In Black in the shot and we do get that feeling to look for her, especially in the long shots. One question I have to ask is why the film was rated 12A, I mean seriously an 8 year old may die watching this film, they will never sleep again! OK it is not that scary, but still. The weakest part for me was the ending though. WHY WHY WHY did they want to do that. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER
The ending involves killing Radcliffe and his son
Overall I wood give this a HIT, definitely. Go see it and you will not come out disappointed.
