Re: The Book Thief

Although I though it was very good, I didn't enjoy it just as much as so many others seem to have. Found that I was looking at my watch throughout, was a bit too long and thought story could have been told in less time. In saying that, I totally understood why it was paced that way. 7/10 from me.

Re: Cuban Fury

Sadly I couldn't stay for the Q&A but it was nice having the intro.

This was simply fantastic. Definitely worth braving the elements for.

Plenty of laughs, a major villian who you felt like booing everytime he appeared, romance & salsa. What else do you need?

Re: Dallas Buyers Club

Sorry to disappoint you but it was quite a good film.
Strong lead performance, I think he deserved his Oscar nomination.

Re: 12 Years A Slave

Great start to my 2014 viewing.

Not much to add, I pretty much agree with the previous comments.

Re: Day Of The Flowers

It's not that bad nor too taxing.

Liked the music, scenery etc.

Perhaps it would've found more fans if it was a "tv movie".

Re: Frozen

Enjoyable and kept the children in the audience enthralled judging from their behaviour.

I thought it had a "grown up" feel to it, which was a good thing.

The short, [spoiler]straddling both worlds,[/spoiler] was quite good too.

Re: Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Idris Elba gave a decent performance but I often saw Idris Elba in prosthetics rather than Mandela
I agree but I didn't let it distract me too much...I still got quite emotional
