I rarely talk about films here. There was once a time where I probably went through a couple of years without going to the cinema much. Then in the last year thanks to a combination of a housemate who works at the BFI and the excellent purchasing of a Cineworld Unlimited card I’ve been banging my way through old and new films non-stop.
Things I have learnt through recent cinema going include
(i) Everything at the BFI starts late. If you enter after a film has started, OAPs shout at you.
(ii) ‘The Town’ is very good
(iii) The Trocadero is even worse than you remember
(iv) ‘A Woman of No Importance’ is the most intense weepie ever. I cried so hard I nearly threw up.
(v) I can give very detailed reviews of every Cineworld in North London.
In forthcoming cinema news I’m looking forward to Gyllenhaal / Hathaway double-header ‘Love and Other Drugs’. It looks good or nauseating, depending on if you’re a girl or a boy.
