Silver Linings Playbook “Scores On Doors”

SCORES ON DOORS

Wow! What an honest, refreshing dark take on the rom-com, fabulously directed
by David O. Russell (The Fighter), with great cinematography & great acting, the
young Lawrence facing off against veteran De Niro in one scene had me purring.

With on screen chemistry between Cooper & Lawrence rivaling that of
Bogart & Bacall and old timers De Niro & Weaver both producing the goods
Silver Linings Playbook is a wonderful movie that is emotionally funny,
sometimes stressful but by the time the end credits role I guarantee you will
be grinning from ear to ear – 8.5/10

Les Misérables “Scores On Doors”

SCORES ON DOORS

Having seen the stage show on broadway a few times I was going into the movie
already a tune to the musical numbers and familiar with the stories characters, this
helped but in fairness would not stop one enjoying this big screen adaption of
Les Misérables. The performances from Jackman, Hathaway & Crowe were all
top notch each showing sides of their acting prowess that are rarely displayed,
Jackman & Hathaway have been recently rewarded by the Academy with Oscar
nominations for their respective roles. Tom Hooper manages to capture the time
beautifully with sprawling set pieces & unusual camera angles.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable movie experience, that will have you singing
along, weeping in anguish & cheering for victory – I would highly recommend 8/10

DIRECTOR
Barry Sonnenfeld
CAST
Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones
Josh Brolin, Emma Thompson,
Alice Eve, Jemaine Clement

MEN IN BLACK III is the 3rd & possibly the
final movie (yea right) in this sci-fi franchise
featuring Agents J (Smith) and K (Jones).

J (Smith) has to time travel to the year
1969 and stop intergalactic criminal
Boris the Animal from changing his fate
and in the process re-writing history.

Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men In Black II
was released 10 years ago in 2002.

Along with the 3 Men In Black movies
Sonnenfeld has also directed Smith in
Wild Wild West back in 1999.

OVERALL
I had lots of fun with this movie, the
injection of new characters, the time
travel aspect of the film and watching
the movie on IMAX 3D all contributed
to a fun cinematic experience.

Men in Black III has some fantastic
movie moments – the Chrysler Building
scene was knee trembling, the introduction
of W‘s Josh Brolin was fine casting and
the smaller roles of Bill Hader as Warhol
and The Pussycat Dolls Nicole Scherzinger
turn as Boris The Animal’s sexy cake
bearing Lily Poison was lots of fun.

Men in Black III deserves to be seen on the
big screen – Will Smith’s first film in over
three years is a triumphant return!
7.5/10
