    The Favourite

    Decent acting and Emma Stone is adorable and talented but 12 bafta nomination worthy ? No, not for me. Style over substance but the typical film the critics all wet themselves over. A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody are far better films overall. The Favourite had some good scenes but the last half hour dragged to the point of thinking, when is this going to end ? 74 out of 100 ( for acting prowess )
    Agree with every word.

      Missed both ASIB and Bohemian Rhaposody. Not fussed about the first but I’m hoping to find somewhere reshowing BR as it did look good and I can’t see it being as good on a small screen, thinking of the concert scenes.
      There is a sing-a-long version of BR at The Dukes this weekend.

      BTW has anyone else seen the poster for the upcoming film Vice? Christian Bale plays Dick Cheney but looks the spitting image of Chevy Chase as he looks these days. Steve Carell looks remarkably different to...

      Was in the US at the very end of the year, and the film itself was getting very positive word of mouth.

      Unlike Holmes and Watson which was breaking (unofficial, presumably) records for the numbers of people walking out of it between the 10-30 minute point! It opened Christmas Day over there and would be surprised if it survived until New Year!

      Saw The Favourite at the Connaught in Worthing this afternoon, have to say I'm in agreement with a lot of the board here in that it is a bit overhyped to say the least. I struggled to have any sympathy/empathy for any of the characters and the sound track in the background was annoying and often painful. The costumes were excellent, the shooting was cleverly done ( although a bit too much fish eye lens ) and the acting ok-ish. Not a great amount of the alleged black comedy humour on view tbh and I was praying for the end halfway in.

      6.5

      Roll on Stan and Ollie next week !
      I had run 17 miles from Grayshades before the school leopard caught me.....

      I am glad others felt the same as me. After hearing all the rave reviews and nominations I thought I had missed something.

      Yes, not just you ! Mrs V was disappointed too, " not as good as I expected it to be " were her words.

      Hopefully not but I have a feeling this might stretch the page; apologies if so.

      Here's the finished visualisation I put together for my tracked films of 2018. Nothing special but it's quite interesting personally to see the output of my sitting in front of 180 films.

      Contrary to popular opinion on here I thoroughly enjoyed The Favourite. It has a witty script, great acting and it’s really playful in its storytelling.

      I also saw Stan and Ollie today. This was a pleasant 6/7 out of 10 film with adorable performances but it wasn’t nearly as funny as I’d imagined it would be. The script was scarily predictable throughout too. Still, worth a watch.
