3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, 21 Oct. 2015
This review is from: Macbeth [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Well I watched this a few days back and have to agree that the cinematography is excellent, bridging the transition between stage and celluloid magnificently. However I doubt how well the production will come across on the small screen. For me, I struggled with the combination of broad Scottish accents (except for Lady Macbeth, was she English in the play?) and Shakespeare's prose. So the dialogue wasn't as compelling as it ought to have been through missing chunks of speech every so often. And one of the main delights of Shakespeare is his use of the language. My son was disappointed with the 'out Damn spot' scene, so at odds with an earlier reviewer. I didn't think it portrayed the scene in the way Shakespeare had written it. That said, stunning visually and worth a look but be prepared to keep your concentration levels in top gear.

This review is from: Blended [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Great movie plenty of humour for kids with some subtle adult stuff added in. Drew Barrymore's oldest child could have been written with a little less in your face puberty but it did work within the story. Drew was great as always and Adam Sandler was slightly less quirky (and hence not so irritating) than usual to make his character quite likeable. Good film, please watch.

Picked up on her 'Dance with Me' from 'The Coffee Shop' film. Like her voice and her songs and found that they grew on you after every listening.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 5 July 2015

I really wanted to rate it between 2 stars, I don't like it, and 3, it's OK. So 2.5 stars. The cinematography was unusual and I admired it in the abstract as it was different and presented scenes quite differently to 'standard' cinematography but it got very irritating as the film progressed, as did Adam Sandler. The film didn't link his personality very well to his relationship with his 7 sisters. And totally neglected to explore Emily Watson's personality/character at all - which was quite key as to why she was considering going out with him in the first place. Unless I missed something here in all the quirky cinematography? Watch because it's not that bad but expect to be disappointed.
