Pre-Bahrain I spent a fair amount of my weekends in Summer at the cinema. Well, maybe not weekends, but certainly a lot of Friday nights. See, I’m a sucker for blockbuster films.
Sure we get them here. But as I’ve mentioned before, films can tend to be cut. But you’re left guessing as to which films and what’s been cut. The safest thing for a film fan like myself to do is just see the film on the small screen. So while I wait for summer blockbusters, I catch up on other films.
It’s been such a long time since I mentioned anything film related on this blog. I’ve been wondering whether it fits in anymore here. But I tend to over think things. So to tell with the wondering and here’s the last five films I’ve seen. That are mostly not even recent releases.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (23/09/11)
In the bleak days of the Cold War, espionage veteran George Smiley is forced from semi-retirement to uncover a Soviet agent within MI6’s echelons.
I admit that throughout about 40% of this film I was confused. I was confused with what was going on, why it was going on and where it was going on. Regardless, I think I enjoyed the confusion because I left the cinema feeling like I’ve experienced one heck of a brilliant film.
Amazing performances from all involved. I couldn’t have guessed what was going on with the storyline if I had tried. I was using so much brainpower to concentrate and keep up with the film, trying to predict anything would have severely hindered my ability to just watch. So I sat back an enjoyed.
