The Cobbler (2014)
Ignore the ridiculously low ratings!!
So....I almost NEVER watch movies; usually don't have the patience for them and don't find most of them enjoyable; stumbled upon this on Netflix, said to the hubby "this sounds weird enough to be good" and started watching. Had no idea all those big names were in it - Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi, Dustin Hoffman...plus what I thought was a great cast of unknowns (well...unknown to me, that doesn't mean much!).
Anyway, I think it's a great movie, very different from most movies out there and a great performance by Adam Sandler...there's a great tear- jerkin scene with his mom and his dad but I can't say more because of spoilers, but I had me teary-eyed...
You got nothing to lose by watching it, so do it!
My Mad Fat Diary (2013)
Absolutely fabulous show!!
I hardly EVER take the time to write reviews, so the fact that I have decided to write one for this show speaks volumes!! Ironically, I almost DIDN'T watch it because the blurb sounded like it was a show directed more at teenagers / younger folks (I am 46). However, as soon as I started watching, I was completely hooked - the acting on this show is the best I have seen in a long time, possibly ever! Every single character on this show is utterly amazing and totally credible. I think my personal favourite is Rae's mother; I had seen that actress in other things before but never realized quite how outstanding she was!! And the MUSIC!!!! Oh my goodness, I'd watch this show for the music alone...lots of Radiohead, Oasis etc. My favourite kind of music and it reminds me of when I was younger... This show manages to be tragic, sad, funny, witty all at the same time - kind of like life itself, right?? Watch it!!!
Die Friseuse (2010)
This is NOT meant to be hilarious
I don't understand why some of the reviewers go on about this movie not being funny - this clearly goes to show that they don't get it as it is NOT meant to be funny!! People who don't understand German will not understand this movie as the subtitles do not do it justice at all - non German native speakers should therefore refrain from writing reviews! This is a very good movie about the human condition; it shows how drab and difficult life is, esp. when you live in East Berlin and don't look like Claudia Schiffer (which is most of us!) Of course, if you're into Hollywood movies, you will be disappointed. In that case, I recommend you don't watch this movie.
