If there was a Breakfast Club 2

The Breakfast Club is one of my favourite movies and just never grows old. Thinking about this movie this morning, imagine if they did a follow up film that catches up with the characters after what 40 years later? Wouldn’t that be amazing though? I’d love to see whether or not their experiences from the first film had any lasting or meaningful impact on their lives now as adults. Who did they become?

I think this movie needs to be a thing like, for real 😎🤩🤩

“It occurred to me that one of the reasons I’d decided not to distance him too quickly was not just to avoid hurting his feelings or alarming him or stirring up an awkward and unwieldy situation at home, but because I was not sure that within a few hours I wouldn’t be desperate for him again.”

If you haven’t seen this movie, please, please do, it is absolutely amazing!

Glass – Watched 19/01/2018

Stars: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson

M. Night Shyamalan has certainly had his fair share of box office bombs and I think this in itself can only make for a more grounded director. Thankfully, Glass is a world apart from that scenario. Casting James McAvoy in Split was one of the best decisions made as McAvoy delivers a powerhouse performance in Glass as DID sufferer Kevin Wendell Crumb. McAvoy shares the spotlight with Mr. Glass himself played by Samuel L. Jackson and David Dunn portrayed by Bruce Willis. Continue reading → Glass – Watched 19/01/2018

The Girl in the Spider’s Web is one of the very few movies this year that I was pleasantly surprised about. I haven’t had a very good run of entertaining films so far this year, most of them have either been so bad I fell asleep or just not as good as I was expecting.

I’m on my way to see Glass!

I’ll have my review online later today. Has anyone seen it yet? I have high hopes for this film but lately, I’ve found that any movie I expect to be good ends up being disappointing. This movie is part of a group of films and all of them have been really entertaining so far. I’ve also seen all of M. Night Shyamalan’s work to date and he’s had his fair share of misses. I guess we’ll see.

Movie Update: Vice, Suspiria and The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

I’ve watched a few movies recently, most of which I don’t want to review in full. Vice was not what I thought it would be and I was disappointed.

Suspiria was also way down on my scale as over-ambitious and just plain weird. There is one very controversial scene in the movie that apparently made people walk out of the theater. That’s the only memorable thing about it so you could watch it for that one thing you know, if you wanted.

And Adam Driver’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote was also a solid 2.5 out of 5 and that’s me being generous. I found parts of it funny, Adam Driver’s character Toby has a very dry sense of humor which was mildly entertaining but I was kinda bored. Nothing moved me, Adam was fine (see I’m not biased 🤣) but I felt like I was watching something better suited for children like a funny fairytale.

But I can see why Christian Bale won his golden globe. In fact, the casting in general for Vice is great. Sam Rockwell, Amy Adam’s, it’s a director’s dream…
