And it’s got Lily James.
(And Ed Sheeran.)
If you don’t like Richard Curtis, don’t go. If you do, you’ll love it.
I sense BCB movie watchers are probably a long way up they own arses so I may very well be alone, which is fine.
Where to start. As I said if wasnt my choice, The Wee guy wanted to see it, so I took him. However, I have enough critical facilities about me to judge a film on its merits, even if it's not particularly my taste.
Do I love movies? Yes. Do I like a lot of movies that are regarded as classics or artistic? Yes. Does that mean I'm "a long way up my own arse" no it doesn't.
The film doesn't even follow it's own internal logic. The main character can remember The Beatles but all his albums have ceased to exist. The Beatles were never sucessful. Yet, later in the film two other characters turn up that know the Beatles, and one of them is waving a Yellow Submarine. Why didnt this disappear along with the afore mentioned albums.
As for the appearance of a certain person, delightful? Christ, man its one of the most hackneyed moments in cinema history.
Every character was a cardboard cliche. And then there was the charisma vacuum of Ed Sheeran.
Yes it's a fantasy, but that's no excuse for this car crash. It's a Wonderful Life is also a fantasy and is perfection. I saw Hobbs and Shaw at the weekend with the Wee Guy. Also a fantasy, gloriously over the top entertainment.
You liked Yesterday, good for you. It's just your opinion, my opinion is that it was complete and utter shite.
I sense your opinions on film are just like your opinions on music. Totally out of step with mine. Which is fine.
